Elk gaming, who brought us such slots as Robyn and The Lab, provides a new twist on a free spins round, and some dynamite action, in this Taco Brothers slot machine.
When we first opened up this slot, with it’s Mexican slot theme, it reminded us very much of NetEnt’s Spinata Grande.
However start spinning and it’s a whole different story.
Before you get to the five reels, it’s story time as you see the evil Captain Diaz steal the tacos from children and bans them, to be eaten only by himself. In comes our three main characters, here to save the day, and bring back tacos to the town.
And that’s what you’ll find on these Taco Brothers slot reels. With tequila, safes, guitars, a cactus or two, and all the tools you need to dig your way out of the free spins round.
This is a well thought out, beautifully drawn and graphically stunning slot machine.
Even the sounds and background music adds to the whole fiesta feel and happy times as you join Pepe, Paso and Pico (the higher paying symbols) in the hunt for those tasty parcels of food.
And that’s not all you’ll be able to do, because if you find two Taco Brothers wilds anywhere on the reels you get a free re-spin and another chance at trying to find the safe scatters to trigger the free spins.
This is a 243 ways to win slot game that puts you in a happy mood, and keeps your balance steady.
The main bonus game within the Taco Brothers video slot, simply find three safe symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, and you will trigger the explosive Wild Escape bonus game of free spins.
Nobody knows how many free spins you’ll get, as these are some pretty unique spins, with running wilds from right to left, and a few special symbols that either stop you in your tracks or unlock your freedom.
During the free spins round each brother will drop on to reel 5 and start a running that row as a wild symbol. Find a CPT Diaz symbol and he will lock up the brother(s) that are running and the next brother will drop down and start a running wild on that row.
The free spins end when the last brother either escapes the jail or all three have been locked up.
However, there is one symbol in the shape of the sexy Senorita, who will restart the running wilds that are on the board back to the beginning or, if they are locked up, will unlock them to continue on their merry way.
In all don’t expect to win big from these free spin rounds. On average we only managed to get around 12 – 20x our total bet wins.
One redeeming factor of that though is that it only takes about 20 – 50 spins in the base game to trigger them.
We won’t go into them much here, but to say that you can choose from the Jumper, Leveller or Booster to add a little more spice to your spins.
Also available to play on your Android phone and tablet, iPad or iPhone the Taco Brothers mobile slot gives you just as much action as the online version.
With a return to player rate of 96.2%, you’ll see plenty of wins in the base game, and regularly occurring free re-spins and bonus games.
A minimum bet of 0.10, much like the Highway Kings slot from Playtech, allows even those on a small budget to play.
Perhaps one we wouldn’t recommend for beginners but those who are a little more experienced especially to give those betting strategies a go.
All in all, we found that our budget was pretty steady throughout our slots session, eventually ending in the positive thanks to those frequent free spins.
Perhaps not as good as The Lab in terms of big wins, but definitely has a higher entertainment value throughout.Play Now at Leo Vegas »
