Microgaming Celebrates EDM with Official Deadmau5 Slot Launch
Microgaming is following through with their second branded online slot of the year – Deadmau5. Regarded as one of the most successful electronic music producers in the world, the slot includes the Canadian producer’s famous tracks like 4Ware and Monophobia. Designed by a boutique game creator Eurostar Studios, this 5-reel slot offers 243 ways to win up to 2,100x bet. You will find this DJ-branded music slot exclusively at Microgaming casinos from 5 November 2020.
One of the main features in this game is the developer’s signature Rolling Reels that have highlighted in many of their hit slots, including Break Away. What it does is allows for multiple consecutive wins by breaking down winning symbols and replacing them with the new ones. There is no progressive multiplier added to the feature in the base game, but it’s not something to worry about.
Another trademarked feature of the Deadmau5 slot is the Drop The Wild. When activated, it’ll turn reel 2, 3 or 4 wild for a guaranteed win. One way or another, there will always be 40 Wild symbols spinning at any one spin on reels 3-5. With the help of Rolling Reels, players will have multiple shots with the same stacked Wilds despite the shifting symbols prompted by wins.
The biggest rewards in this club-themed slot are to come in the Free Spins bonus. Boosted by an increasing Rolling Reels multiplier which peaks at x10, each free spin can snowball into a major win. For a chance at the main feature, collect 3-5 Scatters which will trigger 15-25 Free Spins. For each Scatter combo, you can also earn up to 250x bet! The feature is not overly hard to trigger but it rarely meets the expectations as far as winnings are concerned.
Overall, the much-awaited Deadmau5 slot features some of Microgaming’s most popular features which together with the Grammy-winning electronic music make for a unique online slot game combo. What may surprise some is the scarcity of features compared to other branded games like the new Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar or The Phantom of the Opera. Was it a cost-saving tactic or a tactical move is hard to say. Neither does the RTP of 95.22% seems too inviting, which can have a significant impact even during shorter gaming sessions.
Whether or not that would be a concern for you is something you can put to the test at one of the many Microgaming casino sites already from Thursday, 5th November.
