The bright colours and costumes of Mexican wrestling are famous the world over. A major attraction in Mexico and beyond, the unique form of sports entertainment was the backdrop for the 2006 film comedy Nacho Libre, in which Jack Black plays the role of a monastery worker and would-be wrestler, who turns to the ring in the hope of raising money for the project. Can Jack Black succeed in his mission? You’ll need to watch the film for yourself. But for those who want to try it out first hand, the Nacho Libre slot from iSoftBet is an entertaining, and potentially very lucky, alternative, just like their Heavy Metal Warriors game.
This is a slots game set across 5 reels, by far the most common structure for modern video slots. Across these reels, players are paid out a multiple of their per spin stake for combinations of matching symbols, according to the paytable. There are some 10 different paylines, and only combinations on these paylines will be recognised as winning combinations. In practice, this simply means all combinations from left to right that run through adjacent spaces, and the game automatically calculates how much you’ve won from a given spin based on the spin result.
The graphics and symbols in Nacho Libre are all Mexican wrestling themed, which creates a colourful backdrop to the action. Most of the symbols are wrestlers in traditional masks, or other symbols associated with the sport, such as the ring bell and wrestling boots. Amongst them, you’ll find a number of high card symbols, which make up the lower value positions you find on the reels.
As with all our online slot machine reviews, lets mention the RTP. This colourful slots game also packs a punch, in terms of the winnings on offer. With an RTP at 96.57%, there’s a really slim house edge here, and that makes it easier for you to win over a spinning session versus games with a lower RTP. A maximum win of up to 15,000 coins is available for players lucky enough to spin the highest value, jackpot combination.
Aside from the regular symbols on the reels, there are a number of other symbols, responsible for triggering their own unique features, which players should be aware of.
The ring bell is the game’s wild symbol, which works by acting as any symbol you need in matching combinations. It will switch out for any symbol other than the bonus symbol, which is standard practice for slots of this kind. The wild can also expand during the bonus feature, as well as paying out a 2x multiplier on any winnings that run through it. As a result, the wilds in Nacho Libre are often more valuable than the same features in comparable slots games.
The game’s logo is the bonus, or scatter symbol, and provided you land three or more of these on your reels on any one spin, you’ll trigger the free spins bonus, where some of the biggest wins from this game are to be found.
Bonuses & Jackpots
The free spins bonus is awarded for landing any three of these symbols on the reels. You’ve got a choice as to which bonus you should pick, from 15 free spins with expanding wilds, to 10 free spins with 3x multipliers (and no expanding wilds). It’s up to you which you feel is your best bet at landing the biggest prizes, but we recommend you give both these bonuses a spin where possible to compare results.
If you land five stacked wrestlers on the reels during the feature, you can also walk away with a prize fund in the order of 500x, which can be amongst some of the biggest feature wins available from Nacho Libre.
