The wombat says: Get ready to rave the night away with the deadmau5 slot from Microgaming and Eurostar Studios. Now, if you’re not big fans of Electronic Dance Music let me fill you in…
deadmau5 is a bigtime Canadian DJ and producer. He dj’s on stage wearing a pair of massive (and now infamous) Mickey Mouse ears. Apparently that’s cool nowadays. But more importantly wombat fans, this fella is immortalised in a Microgaming slot that comes with Rolling Reels, 243 ways to win and a max possible pay-out of up to 2,100x your bet. It’s a whole different scene to the Clover Rollover 2 slot with its traditional Irish theme, or any of our Egyptian games for that matter.
It does have a DJ’s record bag full of other extras, however…
Look and Feel
The reel action is set in a club with blue and red flashing lights. The silhouette of our man DJ deadmau5 flanks the raving reels, while the soundtrack is made up of most famous tunes that include 4Ware and Monophobia. This game is brighter than the Dreamzone slot from ELK – you might need to put your sunnies on.
If you love EDM crank the volume right up! If you don’t, you’ll be pressing mute immediately…
Deadmau5 slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 243 ways to win. You can get your party spins on from 0.20 to 120 credits per go.
The reel icons are made up of a bunch of ladies on a night-out who are mid rave, as your high paying symbols. The chick with the deadmau5 earring is the most lucrative icon, and will net you 10x your bet for 5 on a payline
Meanwhile, the 4 playing card symbols; clubs, spades, hearts and diamonds represent the lower values.
That daft Mickey Mouse hat is the wild symbol here, and stands in for all other symbols to help you make extra wins. It will land on reels three, four and five only.
The last icon on the pay-table is the Scatter, which is a mad-looking mouse in a cube. Keep your eyes open for this symbol. Not only because it’s the key to the bonus round, but because it’s one creepy looking icon…
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Avalanche drops, cascading spins and now Rolling Reels – whatever you call them, you should know all about this game mechanic by now.
But if you don’t here’s a quick refresher: After a win, every symbol in said winning combo will disappear and be replaced by brand new icons that drop in from above. New pays can then be formed and the process continues until no more wins can be made.
Drop The Wild
To get your heartbeat going a bit, those fellas at Microgaming have thrown in a nice base game modifier.
Drop The Wild feature is triggered at random at the start of any spin, and can turn from 1-3 of the reels into fully stacked wilds for the rest of the tunn. It will also award you a guaranteed win. Cheers deadmau5!
Hit 3x, 4x or 5x of the cube Scatters on the reels and you’ll scoop 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively.
Now, at the top of your reels you’ll see a Multiplier Trail. It starts at x1 but will increase to x2, x3, x4, x5 and x10 with each consecutive winning drop.
Land another 3x scatters during the bonus and the round will be re-triggered. And even better – this Free Spins bonus can be set off indefinitely!
If you’re a deadmau5 fan or even like sweating it out to the beat of some EDM, then you’ll love this high-variance game.
For the rest of us – there are some nice pays to be had in the base game thanks to the stacked wilds. And the Free Spins aren’t too hard to trigger either.
Now, where are my glow sticks?
Wombat score: 3.9/5
