Day of Dead Slot Review

Day of Dead is a 5 reel video slot with 20 paylines. It comes with an RTP of 96.5%, high volatility and a maximum win of 4500x your bet.

Those numbers are above average for the RTP and around the industry average when it comes to the maximum win amount for a slot of this variance.

The Día de Muertos theme is one that we have seen used in quite a number of slots and there have in fact been some really good release in this genre. First impressions of the Day of Dead slot are pretty good, as you would expect there are a lot of different skull symbols making an appearance on the reels as well as the traditional guitars, drums and card suit symbols.

It makes for quite a spooky impression but in a quite funny cartoonish way.

Gameplay wise Day of Dead is a little different from most standard type slots, the main thing being here that there are no free spins instead we are looking at a Free Respins for the bonus round.

To make more sense of this we first need to discuss why this is not actually a bad thing (it usually does not work out that well when a slot does not come with a free spins round). Day of Dead comes with a travelling wild feature as well, this of course is something that we have seen on quite a few slots which we have in fact enjoyed playing.

Many of you will be familiar with how this works but we will explain just in case. Whenever an expanding wild appears on the screen it turns into a walking wild, meaning it moves one space left with each subsequent free respin.

This keeps going until it has left the 1st reel but if another expanding wild appears the whole show goes on until that wild too has left the reels.

Now as stated this feature has worked well on some slots in the past and Day of Dead is no exception. It is quite possible to get a very long series of free respins and end up with a big win near the maximum potential of this slot.

It is however quite volatile so you there will be a lot of times playing Day of Dead slot when the feature turns into a big nothing burger.

There is also some good news for those of you that do not want to wait to trigger the respin feature naturally, Pragmatic Play have included a buy feature on Day of Dead. Do note it will cost you 100x your bet to trigger it though.

So all in all how do we feel about this one? Well its quite entertaining and it certainly is possible to land a good sized win, its not as entertaining as say Esqueleto Explosivo though but its decent.

If you are having problems trying to play the free demo of  Day of Dead  slot we suggest refreshing the screen. If the problem continues to persist please contact us.

    Afraid to say it but I just do not like the Day of Dead by Pragmatic Play. Thought it was going to be pretty good but I am going to have to rate this one average in my book having played the demo.

    I did gave the Day of Dead demo a few spins but to me it seems way too volatile for what it is. It took forever to trigger the walking wilds and not once did it result in me getting a decent sized win. Theme wise its ok but a bit too generic for me.

  5. Kiwi

    Same here actually, I was playing the demo and it seems really hard to trigger the walking wilds on Day of Dead. When they do come into play the result was usually pretty decent but boy they can make you wait a long long time.

  6. Hodor

    Nice one on adding the demo of Day of Dead so soon. Just gave it a spin and it is actually about what I expected going by your earlier review. Not a bad slot and the walking wilds are quite good, it is a very volatile slot though it took me ages just to land a travelling wild and I got lots of dead spins.

  7. All About Slots

    Great news for fans of Pragmatic Play and their upcoming slots, we have just added the Day of Dead demo. Be sure to give this one a spin or two and leave a rating and/or comment on this review!

    Just a quick update on the status of this slot. The Day of Dead Demo should be available in the next couple of days.

      I am certainly curious about Day of Dead although going by the review that you posted and your 3.5 stars rating it is not as good as I hoped it would be.

  9. Neo

    Read the updated Day of Dead slot review, it was always going to be hard to make something as good as Esqueleto Explosivo or its sequel but sounds like it is not a bad slot regardless. Will wait to try the demo to see just how good those travelling wilds and the respins on day of dead work.

  10. All About Slots

    We have updated our Day of Dead slot review.

  11. King

    There have been some pretty good Day of Dead themed slot machine in the past, I really like the ones by Thunderkick for example. I hope that Day of Dead by Pragmatic Play will be every bit as good as those.

    • Steve

      Esqueleto Explosivo and its sequel were/are indeed very good slots. It would be nice if Day of Dead was anywhere near that good.

  12. All About Slots

    Day of Dead is an upcoming slot machine by Pragmatic Play. At this point in time we do not yet have all the details to complete our review but as soon as we receive access to the demo we will update it.
    Day of Dead is due to be released on the 21st of October 2021.
