Novomatic Arriva Arriva Slot Review and Free Play

Arriva Arriva: Demo

Novomatic has summoned up the spirit of Speedy Gonzalez to create Arriva Arriva, a 5 reel, 25 payline Mexican-themed video slot. Tasty treats on offer here include wilds that double payouts and a bonus round that awards up to 60 free spins where every win benefits from a 2x multiplier. Join Mexico’s fastest mouse from between 50p and £100 per spin.

Arriva Arriva has the typical look and sound we’ve come to expect from Novomatic-powered games. The design isn’t the highest spec but it does the job just fine. The sand coloured reels feature a stylised A to 9 playing cards and a selection of symbols based on all things Mexican.

In order of value, you’ll see cobs of corn and guitar-playing cactuses, both of which offer awards of up to 10 times your total stake. The red chillies come next, paying up to 16 times your total stake per payline. The most lucrative standard symbols are the sun and the maracas which pay 1, 5 or 30 times your total stake if you find 3, 4 or 5 in a line.

The Speedy Gonzalez-style mouse is the wild – it can land on all reels and replaces everything apart from the scatter. When the wild forms part of a winner alongside a standard symbol, the payout is doubled. For example, land 4 sets of maracas and a wild and you’ll win a prize of 60 rather than 30 times your total bet. Lucrative sums are on offer from the wild on its own too. Awards of 10, 100 or 360 times your stake are on offer for a 3, 4 or 5 symbol combination.

Arriva Arriva comes with a Free Games feature – to trigger it, you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the scatter (the lump of cheese) anywhere on the reels on the same spin. Once you’ve received your payout of 5, 20 or 500 times your stake you’ll be taken to a new screen and presented with a selection of 15 fields. Keep picking until you find 3 matching symbols behind the fields. This will decide how many free spins you’ll get:

  • 3 cacti = 10 free spins
  • 3 corncobs = 15 free spins
  • 3 chillies = 20 free spins
  • 3 maracas = 25 free spins
  • 3 suns = 30 free spins

Any winning combination landed during the feature benefits from the 2x multiplier and is doubled. Land the scatters in sufficient numbers and you’ll get another round of free spins – taking your potential total to 30.

The setting may be Mexico but the territory here is pure Novomatic – the simple design in Arriva Arriva is complemented by a potentially fiery bonus round and the 2x multiplier can quickly deliver some tasty results. We know what we’re going to get when we open up a Novomatic video slot and Arriva Arriva ticked all the right boxes. If you’re a fan of this developer, you won’t be disappointed with this Mexican yarn. Alternatively, Thunderkick’s Luchadora is superb and focuses on Mexican wrestlers.
