Brought to you by ELK Studios, the Taco Brothers Slot Game is a Mexican inspired slot that takes you back to 1881 in the town of Santa Maria. The storyline is that the three brothers – Pepe, Pico and Paso – are trying to save the town after the arrival of taco-stealing evil Captain Diaz.
With a Return to Player (RTP) of 96.30%, the Taco Brothers Slot Game is considered a low to medium volatility slot and has 243 paylines. The five-reel, three-row layout is fully optimised and compatible with all devices, including those with touchscreens.
The Taco Brothers Slot Game has a vibrant design with super high-quality graphics and imagery. The reels almost fill the entire screen but sit on a transparent background so we can see the village landscape behind them, though it’s a little hazy. The soundtrack is upbeat and works well in creating an exciting atmosphere.
Symbols-wise, there are the three brothers – Pepe, Pico and Paso – with the latter being the highest paying standard symbol within the game. There’s also a guitar, a cactus, a bottle of tequila, and a shovel and lamp symbol. The wild is clearly identified – it’s a bell icon, clearly labelled with the word ‘WILD’.
The Taco Brothers Slot Games minimum bet is set at $/€/£00.10, whilst the highest bet is limited to $/€/£50.00 per spin. Though this is a relatively low maximum stake, playing at this upper limit gives you the chance to win up to $/€/£75,000.00.
The free spins round is triggered when you land three safe bonus symbols in any position across the first, third or fifth reels. Unlike most free spins rounds, this offers some interesting added extras.
On each spin, one of the Taco Brothers will appear on the fifth reel, acting as a ‘running wild’. On each spin after that, the brother will move one position towards the leftmost reel as he attempts to escape.
Other symbols that will appear on the reels during the free spins bonus round are Captain Diaz and his daughter, Senorita. When the Captain lands, he’ll lock up one of the brothers – be careful, as the round will end if he manages to imprison all three of them! Senorita will try to help the brothers release any captured brother whenever she lands and push those on the reels back several places.
There’s also a simpler version of the free spins round – landing two of the Taco Brother logo wilds will provide you with the chance to respin any reel which doesn’t include a safe or logo wild.
The Taco Brothers Slot Game is an entertaining slot with an exciting narrative. The free spins round is attractive due to the added extra features Captain Diaz, Senorita and the running wilds can bring. There’s the chance for some significant wins if you manage to land the right combination of symbols.
