What we have here is a stunning cartoony 3D slot in a splash of colours typical of Spanish folklore.
The 5 reel 178 spinner is amusing and witty and lends the idea of bullfighting in a humorous way, clearly taking the Bull’s side. When you give it a spin or two you too will favour the bull as he is in charge of two features that will give you extra Wilds.
Still, do not forget about the Matador either who will bring you Re-spins. The game comes available on desktop and mobile devices, set against the backdrop of a murmuring Spanish street full of people preparing to watch the famous corrida.
Swedish developers ELK were founded in 2012 and they are making their way on the journey to the top of the gambling industry.
ELK employ cutting-edge technology and mathematical models but they primarily tend to make the slots touch the human side. Their focus is on mobile casino gaming, as according to them it is the future of gaming.
How to Play It
The entire screen is taken up to fit the 5×4 grid reel which adds to the visual quality of the game. There is only the spin button and if you want to set the bets size you have to click the icon on the left.
Matador and Toro (The Bull) are the main characters but they do not appear as paying symbols in the game. They serve only to trigger special features in the game and of course to amuse the crowd waiting for the biggest battle between the Toro and Diaz Jr.
The symbols that will actually pay for five of a kind on the reels are the red rose paying 1,000 coins for five matching symbols, which makes her the top-paying symbol.
Next in line is the orange with a knife stuck in it that pays 300, lady’s fan pays 200 and the rest are low-paying symbols depicted as coins. It is nice for once to spin one slot without playing cards letters and numbers.
Matador appears only on middle reels, while the Wild (game logo) can count instead of any symbol except for the Matador and Toro.
The bonus games come down to the Bull, but the Matador adds some perks of his own as well. Wild Toro is situated on the fifth reel and whenever there is a chance of landing this enraged animal you will see the fifth reel shaking.
When Toro lands o the fifth reel it will start moving from reel to reel, one by one, thus adding a re-spin whenever he moves to another reel.
Toro Goes Wild also means that Toro will have to be seen its dedicated reel. If by any chance he sees a Matador on the reels to then he will relentlessly head after him, blowing steam through his nose, while the Matador will show his cowardly side before the raging bull.
The good news for the players is that as long as Toro is chasing Matadors he will be leaving a trail of wilds behind him which means that this could fill up all reels with Wilds, but of course it won’t happen often.
Let’s not be too harsh on the Matador as he too is trying to give his best in the corrida.
He appears only on the second, third and fourth reel and when there are three Matadors, they team up and award 3 re-spins, but the special thing about this game is that each next Matador on the reels will add a re-spin, while the previous ones remain locked until the last re-spin
This feature can be very useful if it is triggered simultaneously with the Toro Goes Wild.
The maximum amount you can stake is $100 which will probably be enough for mid-rollers rather than high rollers but the game boasts a prize of 225,000 coins.
The most you can get from the base game is if you land five roses, which will then pay 1,000 coins. The theoretical return to player is 96.4% which sounds a little bit low.
All in all, this is one of the most amusing slots we have played lately. The amazing visuals and witty design can make you laugh and regale your soul, but everyone will definitely be waiting for the Free Spins.
The top-prize as advertised is 225,000 coins, which is, we must admit, a tempting offer. Nevertheless, the slot is high variance, but exciting enough to have what to do while we are waiting.
