Deadmau5 slot is a 5-reel, 243 ways to win slot developed by Microgaming that's based on the world-famous producer and DJ of the same name. This slot not only offers not players a spectacular audio and visual experience but also comes bundled with a whole host of lucrative and genuinely exciting bonus features and mechanics including randomly selected wild reels, rolling reels and a progressive multiplier trail during the free spins bonus.
As you would expect from a heavily branded music-themed slot, this title boasts two officially licensed Deadmau5 tracks, these are 4Ware and Monophobia, both of which play on a loop throughout gameplay. In terms of the overall design, this slot looks pretty decent and is an explosion of neon colour, featuring visuals from Cube v3 tour. Low paying symbols are bright card suits, blue diamonds, purple spades, green clubs and red hearts. High paying symbols are five beautiful women that look to be dancing along with the music. The game's special symbol is the iconic mau5head logo.
If we're being brutally honest, we probably expected a little bit more from such a high-profile branded slot, there's no doubting that Deadmau5 is an iconic household name in this day and age, but this just slot feels a little bit forgettable and bland. It wouldn't have hurt them too much to add a little bit more to make this game really stand out.
In terms of navigating the slot and general gameplay, Deadmau5 is as straight forward as they come. There are four buttons players need to be aware of that are all placed to the right of the game reels. These buttons (from top to bottom) are the autoplay button (that allows players to set up to 100 automated spins), the spin button, a turbo button and a stake selection tool (that allows players to change their stake between 0.20 and 60.00).
One game-breaking thing we did notice when playing Deadmau5 is the fact that there's a small x in the top right-hand corner of the game screen. When clicking the autoplay or stake selection buttons and opening the corresponding menus, in order to close the menu players must make a selection (even if they don't want to) or click anywhere on the screen outside from the pop-out window. Naturally, we went to close these screens using the small x, frustratingly this actually closes the entire game leaving us needing to reload completely.
This high volatility slot falls flat when it comes to winning potential, the RTP is slightly below average at 95.22% and the maximum win is 2,100x the player's stake. This isn't terrible, but it didn't particularly wow us either.
Deadmau5 slot is a good game, but that's about it... We generally expect big-name branded slots to blow us away but there's nothing here that made us sit up and take note. If you're a fan of Deadmau5 then you might well enjoy it, but we honestly can't see many people playing this and becoming a fan as a result.
