A wild symbol, scatter symbol, free spin feature and a bonus game can all be enjoyed playing Vegas Technologies newest slot release… LaCucaracha! This comical roach-themed video slot has 25 lines of play on 5 reels. You can play this slot for as little a a penny per line up to ten dollars per line.
There are a total of ten regular play symbols in the game… a cactus, taco, maracas, tequila worm and the card values of nine through ace. Only two on a payline of the tequila worm and maracas are needed to be awarded a win, while the remaining symbols require a minimum of three to be awarded a win. The highest regular paying symbol is the tequila worm which will award you 5,000 coins if five appear on a payline.
The comical chili symbol is wild in the game and substitutes for all other symbols with the exception of the scatter, to help you complete a winning combination.
The scatter symbol of the game is the roach. Two scatters appearing anywhere on your screen awards you double your triggering bet and three or more scatters appearing anywhere on your screen will award you ten free spins with a three time multiplier. Free spins can be re-triggered during free spin play.
The bonus game of this slot is triggered when the chili appears on reels 2, 3, & 4 at the same time. During bonus play a fairground screen appears where there are a few chili stands and an OWI-METER. Select three chili stands. Each selection raises the OWI-METER by 1 – 5 rants. Your prize is awarded after your third selection. The bonus feature can re-trigger during free spin play. If the bonus game triggers during free spin play and the OWI-METER reaches 12 or more, the free spin feature is automatically re-triggered.
Beginning with $40, I bet five cents on all 25 lines for a total spin bet of $1.25. Within a total of 76 spins, the wild symbol completed a total of 18 winning combinations for me (one win was a $20 win!), the scatter paid me double my bet twice and the free spin and bonus feature were not triggered. I lost my initial $40.
Determined to trigger the free spin or bonus features, I deposited another $40 and played at the same value per spin. Within a total of 64 spins, the wild symbol completed a total of 16 winning combinations for me, the scatter paid me double my bet once, the free spin feature never triggered but the bonus game did and I won only $4.50 on that. Losing once again, I ended play.
I like the sounds and animation of this comical themed slot and the features as well except the fact that the features don’t trigger as often as they should for my taste. (140 total spins and only the bonus triggered one time!) Had it not have been for the wild symbol completing wins for me, I would’ve ended play a lot sooner. Next time I play this slot it will be at a penny per line. A large purse & luck is definitely needed to play this!
