The pageantry of professional wrestling in Mexico is like no other and Lucha Legends Slots does not disappoint. The 5-reel, 25-payline slot by Microgaming has a second gaming mode that bettors can initiate before ever spinning the reels and a bonus game that can award more wild symbols and multipliers. Lucha Legends is a fun spin, especially for those who enjoy real professional wrestling from Mexico.
A Colorful Slot Based on a Colorful Sport
The creators at Microgaming have created a slot that is just as bright, vibrant and exciting as the real thing; the graphics, while a bit cartoonish, really do a great job representing the sport and the athletes who play. Bettors will find the wrestling team of Sal and Pepe and along with the solo wrestlers Martio, Burro and El Diablo wear the bright patterned masks of Mexican wrestling. Players will also find an Ace, King, Queen and Jack configuration as the symbols that have lower payouts.
Betting for Normal and Power Up Modes
The normal version of the base game has a standard betting system that includes 25-paylines and coin sizes of $0.01 and up to $0.10; however, the maximum wager in normal mode is $37.50 due to the ability to wager up to 15 coins per payline. Those who prefer to wager more than that on a spin can take advantage of the Power Up mode that doubles the size on any bet when Power Up is activated.
Two Ways to Play
The only true bonus content is the Super Wilds Feature that awards two additional wilds after the spin are added to the reels or a bettor may see a multiplier of 2X or 3X in addition to the free spins. During the free spins, common wilds can be turned into Super Wilds when winning and non-winning wilds trigger that part of the feature;. This title truly shines with the option of the Power Up mode that can be activated and deactivated before the spinning of the reels; it should be noted however, when a player chooses to trigger the Power Up mode, the amount of the wager placed doubles. Playing in Power Up mode has its advantages, as it increases the frequency of the Super Wild Feature where players can receive four winlds on the reels and increases the possible multiplier into 3X and 5X multipliers .
A Little South of the Border Fun
This slot tille stays true to its theme with brightly colored graphics, including the famous masks and the the cast of characters that wear those masks. Slots with a similar theme have been created by game developers but many feel this may be the best of all games that use this theme. Microgaming has created a slot title that not only offers unique features and gameplay but also gives the characters on the reels personality with a long-drawn story arc.
