Microgaming launches electrifying deadmau5 slot

MicroGaming New Deadmau5

Prominent iGaming software developer, Microgaming, recently announced its latest video slot, deadmau5, exactly a month after launching African Legends.

The new 5-reel 3-row 243-payline title is packed with deadmau5 references and features. The Isle of Man-based software developer, in its official press release this week, announced the title, confirming its quirks and features based on the antics of Canadian house musician Joel Zimmerman, who is better known by his stage name, deadmau5.

Microgaming worked alongside notable casino games pioneer Eurostar Studios, and the firm declared the title is pushing the boundaries for mobile-casino gaming with the right mix of entertainment and rewards. The Cube Scatters and Rolling Reels bonuses, for instance, trigger upwards of 25 free spins and a chance to amplify rewards by up to 10 times.

Bonus, Payouts, and Features

The creators of deadmau5 have kept things simple. Buy-ins range between €0.20 and €100 per spin and players can set up autoplay for 10, 25, 50, or 100 spins. For manual spins, players need to click on the spin button and move the slider to set the new level. Clicking on the lightning bolt triggers turbo spin mode.

Deadmau5 boasts a lean 95.22% RTP but more than makes up for it with a hit frequency of 31.52% to even out the odds. The game is highly volatile, and players have a high chance of activating 2,100x their current stake with a single spin on every third try.

Like every other high-octane title, deadmau5 is packed with quite a few entertaining features that offer dynamic multipliers. The Rolling Reels, Drop the Wild, and Free Spins features are the highlights of the title.

  1. Rolling Reels – Landing 3 or more matching symbols on adjoining reels triggers a win and the winning symbols are replaced with new icons, increasing the player’s chances of securing a larger win. The reels keep reshuffling until the next combination is created. This feature is borrowed from notable Microgaming titles from the past like Immortal Romance.
  2. Drop the Wild – Landing the Deadmau5 symbol on the 3 middle reels turns the whole of reels 2, 3, and 4 into Wilds. However, the bonuses do not stack, and while Drop the Wild is active, Rolling Reels will not be triggered.
  3. Free Spins – Upon landing on reels 3, 4, and 5 on the same spin, the Free Spin round is triggered. The payout here is equivalent to 5, 25, or 250x the current stake and offers an additional 25 free spins. Just like the base game, the Rolling Reels bonus is active during this round and features a Multiplier Trail.


Deadmau5, the video slot, is designed on a nightclub-based theme. Although the soundtracks aren’t for everyone, it works well with the overall design. As the name suggests, most of the in-game audio is Deadmau5’s creation, including tracks like Monophobia and 4Ware. The neon-styled heart, club, diamond, and spade symbols along with the five dancing women represent the scatters. And the game is accessible on an array of mobile devices including the computer, tablet, and smartphones.
