Expert's review Trystan Michielsen

Slot tested

Esqueleto Mariachi is definitely a tongue twister but surprisingly it still gives you an idea of what to expect: a musical slot with a distinct Mexican taste. If you’re as eager to jump in as I was, read on!

The first thing that jumps out to me are the looks of this game with its incredible atmosphere. It just shows how much a 5 reels, 40 paylines slot has to offer in terms of design. The developers clearly embraced the Mexican style and soaked the slot in it. I spent a lot of time just enjoying the look and feel of this game.

Esqueleto Mariachi makes sure to appeal to most players by giving us those little features that make any game better fit to our personal preferences. You can choose your bet from £0.20 to a whopping £100 per bet. Autoplay and turbo spins are a staple amongst slots like these too. Little Quality of Life additions like these are always appreciated.


Esqueleto Mariachi looks exquisite with a high amount of detail and sharp images. The game is based on the theme of the Mexican Day of the Dead, a century’s old ritual about celebrating people’s deceased loved ones. The tradition has a high focus on skeletons and music which is represented in the game.

Unlike in Western cultures, the Day of the Dead is a time of celebration and festivities. That’s why Esqueleto Mariachi features some high-level music as well as colourful, energetic images. There are three main characters, deceased members of a mariachi band who each play their own instrument as well as offering their own bonus.

Music & Sound

Where a lot of games falter in the sound department, Esqueleto Mariachi definitely succeeds. The music is of high quality, chipper and exciting. It fits the theme marvellously. While you’re spinning the music is a little muted but get a win and there is a pleasant jingle playing. Win big and you get a full band playing a celebratory tune!

The other sound effects are good too. Each action you take has its own unique sound effect, and they blend seamlessly with the music. You even hear people chatting in the background as if you’re at a party. There wasn’t a moment during gameplay where the sounds or music took me out of the game, which is an accomplishment.


Esqueleto Mariachi starts off simple enough with a series of basic symbols, although all of them in a fitting Day of the Dead style. All in all, the symbols include:

  • Mexican Woman: Acts as a Wild. Win 100, 240 or 500 coins respectively for 3, 4 or 5 Wilds on a payline.
  • Musical Note: Acts as a wild. Win 100, 240 or 500 coins.
  • Skull with candles: Win 48 to 300 coins from 3 to 5 symbols on the payline.
  • Tequila: Win 32 to 200 coins.
  • Cactus: Win 24 to 140 coins.
  • Ace: 10 to 72 coins.
  • King: 8 to 48 coins.
  • Queen: 8 to 40 coins.
  • Jack: 4 to 32 coins.
  • 10: 4 to 20 coins.


There’s a series of special features included in the slot. Some of these like the Wilds show up during the base game, others are reserved for the special Free Spins bonus game.

To get into the Free Spins bonus game, you’ll need to get the big mariachi symbols on screen. These count as scatters, and when you get 3 or more on the screen at the same time this triggers the bonus game. Before you start the bonus game, the slot decides how many free spins you get to play with. This can be anywhere between 10 and 25.

With those free spins you start the Mariachi bonus game, which gives you access to between 1 and 3 of the band members. The times they can act varies every time. Each of them has their own bonus:

  • Guitar: The band member playing the guitar uses it to summon wild symbols all across the screen. The wilds are placed to make sure that there is a win.
  • Trumpet: Playing the trumpet, the Trompetista blows symbols off the reels. These empty spots are replaced by new symbols, hopefully making new wins.
  • Maracas: The Maraquero plays his maracas and nudges the reels up or down to complete winning paylines.

In Conclusion

Esqueleto Mariachi is a special game. It has a ton of detail, excellent music and great graphics. The medium volatility means that you are regularly rewarded with some nice wins. You can’t go wrong with this game.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time playing this game, seeing the bonus game with the different band members. Are you looking for a slot with the standard 5 reel layout but up to date graphics and some fun bonus features? Then I heartily recommend Esqueleto Mariachi!
