Casumo Casino has added the gorgeous new Relax Gaming slot, Dead Mans Trail, to their casino, live and playable on the official release date of the 7th of September 2021.
If you want to skip straight into the action, we have added a playable demo version of this slot at the top of the page so that you can test out this slot for yourself! (Click the Red button and get straight into the action!)
Firstly we need to commend the Dead Man’s Trail visuals. A pirate theme is always a solid choice for an online slot, with the chance to plunder riches. It just makes sense. The visuals on offer here, though, are nothing short of breathtaking.
An opening video sets the scene, and you could be forgiven for thinking it was a CGI movie trailer. The visuals are so good, and it doesn’t end there. The backdrop to this slot is animated, so if you take the time, you will notice a misty fog creeping over the screen and pirate flags blowing in the wind, all nice touches that give us that immersive feeling which sadly is a forgotten art with many slots. Someone at Relax Gaming needs to give the design team and big pat on the back for this release!
Dead Man’s Trail Base Gameplay
Of course, pretty visuals don’t just make a slot a hit, it’s a great start, but the gameplay needs to match this to make it worth playing. With maximum wins of up to 50,000x, it’s fairly obvious to see we have a high variance big-hitting slot here!
The base game comprises a 5×4 reel set and 40 fixed paylines, with heavily stacked high paying pirate-themed symbols and lower-paying stacked regular symbols. Several wilds also help to create winning combinations. It is possible to land multiple matching heavily stacked symbols, so huge hits in the base game might be rare, but they are definitely possible.
In addition, there is also a Coin Feature present in the base game, which can award random stake based rewards. When three or more rows of these special gold doubloon symbols land in view, the coins are all collected, with the multiplier values being added together to form the win. The values on these coins can be quite high, so there is definitely some nice base game hit potential from this feature. Certainly enough to help keep your balance above water!
However, the main attraction to this slot is triggering the Dead Man Trial Bonus feature, which requires the regular 3 scatter symbols to start the bonus. If you want an insight into the bonus feature, think of Relax gaming’s smash series of Money Train slots, with pirates and a board game! And you pretty much have it.
We will break down how the bonus round works below. Along with all the special Persistent Modifiers that can interact and help you plunder the biggest riches!
