The Europeans have a Halloween. But the festival of evil spirits doesn’t compare in scope with the Mexican “Day of the dead”. The whole country is involved in the carnival. The main attributes: make-up celebrating the dead, candles on the roads from the cemetery, so that the dead could find their way home and human skulls made of sugar. They are broken and eaten. The action is accompanied by guitar music, incendiary songs and drinking alcohol.
The festive atmosphere was successfully conveyed in the Dia Muertos slot machine. The slot turned out to be even somewhat hooligan – skulls in free spins emit screams and make faces. And the animation of other characters is made with black humor.
