For those who are blissfully unaware, mariachi is a style of music and musical group performance that is commonly associated with Mexico. Generally speaking, the performers in a mariachi band wear traditional costume, utilise various instruments within their repertoire, and play a lively style of music. The Mariachi 5 slot game from RTG brings all of these features to its reels, but each of the band members is a skeleton.

In essence, the game unites both the idea of a mariachi band and the Festival of the Dead, and as RTG is the creator of this slot it features bright and crisp graphics throughout. The first of its symbols are present in the shape of the playing card additions running from 9 through to A. You’ll also see the five members of the mariachi band come into view on the reels, each of whom plays a different instrument. There’s the trumpet player, the fiddler, the guitarist, the maracas player and, of course, the vocalist.

All of those symbols and more appear on the slot’s layout of five reels and three rows, with 243 ways for you to win across it. These cannot be customised one way or another, but you can still change your bet, with plus and minus buttons being on display at the bottom of the reels for this. The slot allows you to choose from wagers of between £1.80 and £150 per spin.

Special Features

Wild

Any party featuring a mariachi band could get a bit wild, and so can this game. The wild symbol is clearly visible because it’s represented by the word, “WILD”. If this one comes into view, it will substitute for all other symbols in the game, with the exception of the scatter addition.

The wild symbol is only able to appear on reels two and four, but it will appear there in groups. Therefore, it is able to completely cover each of these reels.

Donkey Piñata

A mariachi band needs some kind of mascot, and in this game, it’s represented by the donkey piñata. A skeleton donkey piñata! It is this symbol which operates as the slot’s scatter symbol, so it has the potential to show up anywhere and still provide you with a pay-out. Furthermore, this one can trigger the slot’s feature round.

If you spin between three and five scatter symbols into view during base gameplay, you’ll be able to choose from 5 different feature rounds, with each one incorporating different perks:

  • Guitarist Free Spins: You get 15 free spins and a wild multiplier of 2x
  • Maracas Player Free Spins: You receive 12 free spins and a wild multiplier of 3x
  • Vocalist Free Spins: A total of 10 free spins are provided with a wild multiplier of 4x
  • Trumpeter Free Spins: Eight free spins are given to you with a wild multiplier of 5x
  • Fiddler Free Spins: You’ll receive five free spins and a wild multiplier of 8x
