We have always held the opinion that there are certain themes and concepts that we think would make excellent foundations for online slots that just seem to never be used. Reel Time Gaming's El Torero slot is all about bull fighting, which is the kind of thing that we think would stand out as being a good choice for a slot motif that isn't used very much.
We want to point out that we understand that some people think of bull fighting as a form of animal cruelty. While we understand that position, this game does not show any actual bull fighting in progress, and it's more of a Spanish theme with a bull fighting motif than an outright focus on the bull fighting portion of the concept.
Layout and Betting
The layout of this game is set up to look much like an older style of title in a lot of ways with seven-segment displays used for your account balance, total bet size and amount bet per payline at the bottom of the screen. However, when you look up behind the reels, you'll see rolling hills and a beautiful sunset.
Along these lines, there are five reels with three rows of symbols that make up the main playing area. You will have a maximum of 10 paylines that pay out from left to right only. It's best for you to keep this at the maximum in spite of the fact that you can drop them down to just one payline if you really want so that you get the best RTP payout percentage available.
A handful of bet sizes are available that range from $0.10 to $10 per spin. That's plenty options for the vast majority of players, but particularly high stakes players may which that some larger bet sizes were available. All wins are going to be described here as a multiple of your entire bet size instead of based on line bet wins.
Wild Matador Symbols
The wild symbol in this game is the matador. He's facing the player in front of the sunset and wears a signature black cap. He's a wild symbol that substitutes for everything in the game other than the scattered bull symbol.
While this symbol helps you to get wins by showing up on every one of the five reels, he's also responsible for some solid payouts on his own. Five of a kind is worth a 100x payout, which is the top win available on a single line in the entire game. Four of a kind is worth 20x, and three of the wilds on a payline from left to right gets you 5x. A win for two of a kind is also available with 1x as the prize.
Scattered Bulls and Free Spins
The bull symbol is scattered, and getting three of them on the reels at the same time gives you a shot at the free spins bonus round. Keep in mind that you'll always get 10 free spins whenever this feature triggers, and you cannot re-trigger the feature once it's started. The scatters do not give you payouts outside of triggering this bonus round.
During the free spins game mode, you'll have an extra feature activated with the wild symbols to give you more value. Every single wild symbol that appears during this feature becomes locked in place, so they accumulate during the 10 free spins to give you opportunities for some pretty serious wins by the end of the feature.
Prizes and Winning Combinations
The woman behind the purple fan gets you a win of 50x for five of a kind. Aside from the wild symbol, she's the only symbol that gets you a win for just two of a kind in a winning combination. For the hat, guitar or rose symbols, five of a kind will get you 25x for any.
From there, you have the yellow A, red K, green Q, blue J and purple 10 symbols. All five of these symbols get you wins of 10x for five of a kind.
From a graphical standpoint, the El Torero slot by Reel Time Gaming is definitely solid. The background in particular stands out as being aesthetically pleasing. From a gameplay standpoint, the regular game mode is pretty normal, but the free spins mode with sticky wilds packs a ton of value, especially since you can get wins for just two of a kind for the wild and highest-paying regular symbol.
The payout structure for this title is pretty flat, but the bonus feature with sticky wilds really gives you an opportunity to take down several wins on the same turn for some bigger prizes.
