If there is one thing you would want when you spin a DeadMau5 themed slot it’s epic dance music from the legendary Canadian producer’s back catalogue. That is exactly what you get, progressive house that builds alongside the reels spinning, aiming for that euphoric moment when you trigger the Free Spins feature or land a big win across the game’s 243 paylines.
The music plays as the reels spin, as in ELK’s DJ Wild slot from 2015, but where deadmau5 differs is that the slot plays signature electronic tracks from deadmau5’s cube v3 tour. Also unlike DJ Wild, the tunes keep pumping throughout the game play, rather than only when the reels spin. This slot poffers epic electronica action that transforms your screen into a deadmau5 dance floor.
Pros & Cons
- Excellent soundtrack from deadmau5.
- Multiple bonus features.
- Superb max jackpot.
- High paying dancer symbols are hard to distinguish.
- Free Spins cannot be retriggered.
- No Rolling Reels™ during the Drop the Wild feature.
How to Play
Using a 243 Ways to Win pay system means that you don’t have to match symbols in specific payline patterns, but instead simply need to land them on adjacent reels from left to right. The Ways to Win pay system continues to prove popular as the online slots eGaming revolution continues to drive forward, with slots like Aeterna pushing the boundaries still further. The system works perfectly here, and the symbols disappear thanks to Microgaming’s trademark Rolling Reels™ feature that allows new symbols to fall in their place to complete further consecutive wins.
To set your stake click the coin symbol beneath the reels. You can either use the slider to adjust your bet limit or click on of the preset boxes, though just be aware that the presets might not feature all of your betting options – use the slider to move up through the gears to finalise your stake. Clicking the three lines to the left of the reels opens up the pay table and settings menu if you need to adjust game settings or check over the bonus requirements.
Various dancers in euphoric states take a bow as the deadmau5 slot’s high paying symbols, and while each is highlighted by a different lighting effect the Orange and Yellow Dancers do look similar. Though this is a far cry from slots like Aeterna from Black Pudding Games, for example, which uses completely distinct symbols and colouring, it is a small gripe. The Yellow Dancer is the lowest paying of the symbols (awarding x3 your stake for landing five adjacent symbols) and the Orange Dancer is the highest paying (awarding x10 your stake for landing five adjacent symbols). Shimmering pixelated Card Suits make up the lowest paying symbols, paying x1.6 – x2.5 your stake for landing five symbols adjacently. The disco ball deadmau5 Wild appears stacked and substitutes for all symbols except Scatters, which takes shape as the deadmau5 head in a box.
The deadmau5 slot features a dedicated Free Spins bonus game as well as two Wild-based features that can activate on any spin.
