Taco Brothers is an animated online video slot game produced by ELK Studios. The game has a Mexican theme and is based around the story of evil CPT Diaz who rolls into the village of Santa Maria in 1881 confiscating all the tacos in town. It is up to the three fearless brothers Paso, Pepe and Pico to rescue the tacos and save the town. Set against the backdrop of a dusty Mexican town, the cartoon-style graphics and animation are top-quality. The pleasant sounding Mexican background track and vibrant sound effects all work together to produce a highly entertaining slot experience.
5 Reel Mexican Themed Slot
The slot machine in Taco Brothers is based on the modern setup of 5 spinning reels with 243 ways to win. On the reels, players will find the main characters in this story as well as the tools involved in breaking the tacos out of jail. The highest paying symbols in this game are the three brothers, namely Paso, Pepe and Pico. For the lower paying symbols, the game designers have used images from the heroic taco jailbreak story including Pepe’s guitar, a cactus, a bottle of tequila as well as a lamp and a shovel.
243 Ways to Win
In addition to the standard slot game with 243 ways to win, the Taco Brothers slot also includes a number of bonus features in the form of two wild symbols, re-spins, free spins and running wilds. The standard wild symbol in this game is played by the bell symbol. In the base game, the bell can be used to substitute for any of the other standard reel symbols in order to achieve a winning combination. There are two symbols the bell cannot substitute for, these are the game logo wild and the safe symbol that triggers the free spins.
Free Spins with Multipliers
In Taco Brothers, to trigger the free spin bonus round, players must land 3 safe symbols anywhere on the reels. This will start the wild escape bonus round. Unlike most free spin round, this bonus game does not have a set amount of free spins. The number of free spins is determined by the bonus features in the game. During the free spin round, the exploded safe symbol acts as a multiplier, players can collect up to 3 exploded safe symbols to multiply their winnings by 3x.
Wild and Re-Spin Symbols
In the Taco Brothers slot, there is a second wild symbol. This wild symbol is essentially a re-spin symbol. If players manage to land 2 game logo symbols anywhere on the reels, they will be rewarded with a single re-spin. This gives players another opportunity to form winning combinations. The main bonus feature in this game however is the Wild Escape bonus game. This is basically the free spin round and is triggered by the safe symbol.
Running Wild Bonus Game
The free spin round in Taco Brothers focuses around the running wild bonus feature. During the free spins, the brothers are wild symbols and will drop one by one onto reel 5 and slide across the reels at one reel per spin. If CPT Diaz appears on the reels, he will imprison any brother on the reels. If all brothers go to jail, the free spins end. If the Senorita symbol appears, she restarts the free spin round and has a set of keys to release the brothers from prison.
