Luchadora Slot Machine
Thunderkick have created a slot machine that really packs a punch and it’s called Luchadora. This Mexican wrestling themed online slot provides plenty of entertainment via the lycra-donned chunky wrestlers, but you can trigger wilds, sticky wilds, free spins and fabulous multipliers by playing this 5-reel, 30-payline slot.
Set the reels in motion and watch as the action guys flaunt themselves on the reels, all from as little as 0.10 a spin. High rollers can max out their bankroll with up to 100.00 a spin – the more you stake, the more you can win so bear that in mind when deciding on how much you are going to throw into the ring.
Wrestling is a popular sport, just ask any kid (or big kid for that matter), you only have to flick to the sports channels and you can watch wrestling and all the talking that goes along with it. Thunderkick though have created something that is not only magical but fierce too. The reels of the game are set within the wrestling ring and surrounding these are clouds of different coloured smoke which come from the spectators.
Each reel offers 5 symbols and these are combinations of different coloured lycra-wearing blokes to Mexican foodstuffs, such as peppers and chilies. The control panel is the very lower section of the screen and it offers up your balance, bet, wins and the ability to adjust your bets, initiate the autoplay feature and view the paytable.
As we imagined, it is the wrestlers that can punch big cash into your bankroll – El Toro is the jackpot paying symbol and you need to tempt him to fall as a 5 of a kind combination to release the 25x multiplier jackpot – this sees high roller stakes of 100.00 multiplied to 25,000 in cash. El Rayo is the second highest paying symbol with 20x your stake, El Serpiente offers a 17.5x multiplier and El Pantera offers a 15x multiplier – but only when you fill a payline full of matching symbols. No matter what the value of your stake, those multipliers are set multipliers, this means that you will receive them whether you bet minimum bets of 0.30 or maximum of 100.00.
Thrown Into the Ring
As we’ve previously stated, there are wilds, free spins and multipliers to get your hands on, but there’s another feature that can be very rewarding indeed – it is the Ring Corner feature. Each of the four corners of that wrestling ring are gold – if a wrestler lands in 1 of these squares, those matching wrestler symbols will become wild for that spin. If you are lucky enough to transform all 4 wrestlers via the golden corner squares, the underdog symbol will transform before your very eyes to become the La Luchadora symbol (this is a high value symbol).
Lucha Smackdown symbol appears on reel 5 only and when he falls onto the reel, you will be gifted with free spins and multipliers which are:
- 7, 11 or 15 free spins with a multiplier of either 2x, 3x, 5x or 15x.
Lucha Bonus feature is awarded when 3 or more wrestling belts fall onto the reels, this awards either 7, 11 or 15 free spins. Lucha Smackdown can award additional free spins and a multiplier prize of 15x your stake, when he falls via the free spins feature.
Spinning Good Action
Luchadora is highly entertaining and will provide plenty of excitement whilst playing, but it’s a slot game that relies heavily on free spins – which are not too keen to spin into place. We love the design, fair play to Thunderkick because it resembles the theme – so many slots nowadays look nothing like how you’d expect them too. The only bonus on offer is free spins granted, but the wilds and transforming wilds that can fall during free spins can create some colossal wins.
We found the slot to be a medium to high variance, which means that there are longer periods of losing than winning, so you will need a relatively large bankroll to keep up with the losses. When we played the Luchadora slot machine, we managed to trigger the free spins twice in an hour period, but our disappointment was short-lived when the huge wins and multipliers fell into our laps – our original 100.00 stake returned more than 2,500 in one free spins bonus.
