Based on the famous Canadian music producer and well known DJ of the same name comes the deadmau5 slot from Microgaming. Played across five reels and with 243 ways to win, there is much to enjoy about this slot. Deadmau5’s tracks blast in the background as you play this hi-tempo slot game. There are Rolling Reels, wild reels and a great Free Spins bonus feature which can give you up to 25 free spins.
Graphics and Theme
For those players who are unfamiliar with the DJ, Deadmau5 is the stage name for Canadian music producer and DJ, Joel Zimmerman.
The game is set in a glitzy nightclub with a rather simple design. The soundtrack is the artist’s music which is a plus or a minus depending on your feelings towards the artist.
On the reels themselves, you will find neon symbols relating to the card suits of hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades. You will also see five dancing women as well. The lady that has a face full of jewels is the highest paying symbol worth 10x your stake for five in a row. The deadmau5 logo is the slot’s wild symbol and will substitute all but the scatter symbol. The wild will only appear on reels 2-4.
As you would expect the gameplay of this slot is high octane and fast paced. There are three bonus features on offer here which we go into below.
Rolling Reels feature
This will trigger when you land three or more matching symbols on adjoining reels, that start on reel one. These symbols will then be removed and new ones will drop in to replace them. A new payout calculation is then done. If you get another win, then the process is repeated.
These rolling reels will keep on going as long as you keep up a winning combination. The rolls can also deliver more during the free spins round.
Drop the Wild feature
When the wild symbol appears on the middle three reels then this feature will trigger. Randomly on any base game, you could benefit from this feature. This will turn the whole of reels 2,3 or 4 wild. The rolling reel will not be active when this feature triggers.
Free Spins feature
When you land 3-5 scatters on the same spin will activate the Free Spins feature. Your reward is a payout that could equal to a potential 250x your total stake as well as up to 25 free spins.
3 scatter symbols = 15 Free Spins
4 scatter symbols = 20 Free Spins
5 scatter symbols = 25 Free Spins
The previously mentioned rolling reel feature is active during the free spins feature, just like in the base game. The feature also comes with a Multiplier Trail.
Landing consecutive Rolling Reel wins can lead to an up to 10x multiplier coming into play. You cannot win additional free spins in this feature.
The game is very straight forward to play; all you need to do is click on the spin and watch the money roll in hopefully. The spin button is positioned below the reels in the centre of the screen. The other controls are on the left and right of this central button. These buttons control how much money you want to put on each spin. There are indicators in other parts of the screen, displaying your total winnings and your current balance.
Deadmau5 slot on Mobile
The deadmau5 slot has been adapted for both smartphones and tablets. The design is pretty similar to that of the desktop version with just the positions of buttons, and some elements moved around to fit the device screen size.
