Taberna De Los Muertos
Taberna De Los Muertos (translated to Tavern of the Dead in English), is a bright, vibrant, gorgeously designed 5-reel, 101 payline Mexican-themed slot developed by the talented team at Habanero! Players celebrate the Day of the Dead in this game with an innovative line boost feature, an insane amount of free spins and a generous wild feature that can see the number wins rack up pretty quickly!
NOTE: Players should be aware that there are two Taberna De Los Muertos slots, both released at the same time. There is Taberna De Los Muertos (that is being reviewed here) and Taberna De Los Muertos Ultra, which is the same slot, but with an ultra-high volatility. The players have a reduced chance of winning on spins, but a significantly higher chance of winning HUGE wins.
Like most Habanero slots, this game genuinely looks fantastic! The game symbols float in front of a bright Mexican street that's lined with beautifully designed, skull-adorned neon-lit buildings!
Low paying symbols are your standard royals (designed with a Latin twist). These are spades, clubs, diamonds and hearts. High paying symbols are a pair of dice, a fully loaded taco, a bottle of tequila and a gun! The more lucrative symbols float invitingly atop a colourful gold-trimmed circular plate.
When the game's 'Wild Feature' is triggered a burning heart appears on the game reels featuring the game's two protagonists who feature on the wild and scatter symbols. When the game's free spin feature is triggered a skeletal barman comes out of the Taberna and pours two drinks, signalling the start of the bonus feature! Finally, if players record a big win three Skeleton Mariachi band members pop up playing El Jarabe Tapatio (also known as the Mexican Hat Dance) as coins float down from the top of the screen.
First and foremost, players should understand that this slot has Line Boost active, this means that all gameplay begins with just 25 paylines, however, the number of paylines is boosted every time players register a win on a certain set of paylines (up to a maximum of 101).
In terms of navigating the slot, Taberna De Los Muertos utilises an action bar along the bottom of the game reels with an adjustable bet level and coin value, meaning that players have a bit more freedom when it comes to their stake. Players access an information bar on the left-hand side of the screen and can set up to 500 automated spins on the right-hand side.
This medium volatility slot features RTP ranges due to the varying number of paylines, however, it has a base RTP of 96.67%. The maximum win players can register is 9,226x their stake when the maximum number of paylines (101) are in play.
There's quite a lot going on Taberna De Los Muertos, the Line boost feature can be somewhat confusing at first, but once you get your head around it then this charming Mexican slot will really keep you on your toes! The opportunity to unlock up to 101 paylines and trigger 40 free spins is pretty damn attractive!
