It’s time to put on your spandex mask and trunks and jump into the ring in Lucha Maniacs, a Mexican wrestling themed video slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. It’s a 5 reel, 20 payline game that comes with bright and colourful design as well as some cracking features. Trigger the Free Spins feature and you can boost your chances with 20 different modifier extras including multipliers, wilds and much else besides. Play from between 20p and £100 per spin.
We’re usually in safe hands when it comes to the design of Yggdrasil Gaming titles and Lucha Maniacs is another lush looking game. A rickety looking wrestling arena is the setting here. On the reels are playing card suit symbols alongside a quartet of wrestlers. The best payers are the ones in red and pink masks who award 10 times your bet if you land 5 on a line. There’s also a standard wild in the base game that replaces all other symbols bar the bonus scatter.
Land 3, 4 or 5 of that bonus symbol and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature and with it, 7, 15 or 30 free spins. Before the round starts, you’ll be offered a selection of playing cards. Choose to reveal modifier extras which are in play throughout the free spins.
On offer are 1 or 2 wilds per free spin, 2 or 4 extra free spins, sticky wilds on reels 2, 3 or 4, 2 higher value symbols merging and combining their features and payouts, a high value symbol that turns wild, a high value symbol that appears stacked or a high value symbol that gets a 3x multiplier.
Regardless of how many free spins you land, you’ll start with 3 features. That’s unless you’ve activated Golden Bet feature – this will set you back an extra 5 coins per base game spin. In return, an extra feature is awarded when you do trigger the Free Spins feature.
Hope to see more bonus symbols during the feature too as these deliver some free spins and even more modifier extras. All is not lost if you land 2 bonus scatters on the same base game spin. You’ll then activate the Poster Bonus Game feature – here you can win cash prizes of up to 80 coins as well as 7 free spins with 3 picks in the Free Spins feature.
We’ve been fans of Yggdrasil Gaming video slots for a while now and Lucha Maniacs is one of the Scandi developer’s better releases. The visuals here are superbly done and the salsa style backing track is a perfect fit.
The Free Spins feature offers plenty of action too thanks to the wide range of extras on offer. If you fancy playing a game that combines superb looks with cracking features, then Lucha Maniacs ticks all the right boxes. If it’s Mexican wrestling you’re into, Thunderkick’s Luchadora is recommended – if it’s a taste of Mexico you’re after, Play ‘N Go’s Grim Muerto is a superb game to try.
