Lucha Legends slot review
Mexican wrestling is extremely popular these days and it is the theme of Microgaming’s latest release, called Lucha Legends. Join El Diablo, Martio, Burro and duo Sal & Pepe in the five-reel video slot that offers 25 fixed paylines. Spinners can play the 2018 release in normal mode or in the Power up mode, which costs double, but brings more Super Wilds. Get extra Wilds or Wild multipliers during base game and during the Free Spins feature, thanks to the Super Wild feature. Collect Belts to trigger freebies with Superb Wilds. Get your wrestling equipment on and get ready to rumble!
The scenery is not that glamorous, but fans don’t care about that, they just want to see a great show and it is up to the wrestlers to make that happen. Sal & Pepe make the dynamic duo, Burro is always hungry and El Diablo is one of the best wrestlers in business. We believe that Maritio is his biggest opponent. Judge Ricco is here to make sure everything is done according to regulations, while the beautiful Violeta is the ring girl. Playing cards are used for low-value symbols. The Belt is the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature. The Logo is the Wild, while there is also the Super Wild that will appear from time to time. Both of them substitute for all regular symbols.
We think that there are only a few people across the globe that fully understand the rules in Mexican wrestling, but, fortunately for all punters who would like to try out Lucha Legends, the Microgaming title is not that complicated. The 2018 release features a standard 5×3 layout and benefits from 25 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the far left reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts. The slot can be played in normal mode (bet from £0.25 to £37.5) and in Power Up mode, where you double your bet to increase your chances of triggering the Super Wild feature and boost the feature, but more about that later.
The Super Wild feature is triggered randomly and you will see one of the luchadores, or wrestlers, appear on the reels, adding up to 2 extra Wilds on the reels, or giving you a Wild multiplier of 2x or 3x. This happens when you play in normal mode. If you activate the Power Up mode, the Super Wild feature will trigger more often and will become more valuable, offering a Wild multiplier of 3x or 5x and up to 4 extra Wilds on the reels.
The Belt Scatter lands on reels 1, 3 and 5 and once you get all three of them on the reels, you will trigger the Free Spins feature, which gets you 10 freebies to begin with. To retrigger the feature, you need to land three extra Scatters. Land two of them and you will get one additional free spin. Every Wild that appears during the feature becomes a Super Wild, meaning that it can get you up to 4 extra Wilds or a Win multiplier up to 5x.
All luchadores among gamers can win up to 165,000 coins per spin in the 2018 release. All wrestlers pay the same, 12 times the bet (or 6 times the bet if the Power Up mode is activated) for five of a kind, so you can pick your favourite luchador and win big. The Free Spins feature is where you will be able to win big, thanks to the fact that every Wild becomes a Super Wild. Lucha Legends’ RTP is 96.38%.
Lucha Legends on Mobile
The iGaming industry giants, or simply Microgaming, made sure that the 2018 release can be played anytime, anywhere. There is the desktop version of Lucha Legends, which can be played on desktops and laptops, and the mobile version you can enjoy on smartphones, tablets, iPhones and iPads. Expect a high-quality game on any of the gadget you chose to play it on.
+ Boasts great visuals and soundtrack
+ Action and excitement guaranteed
+ Playable across all devices
– Not everybody likes Mexican wrestling
– You need to pay double for more Super Wilds
– Landing Belts takes time
We already had the pleasure to test Realtime Gaming’s Lucha Libre 2 and Yggdrasil’s Lucha Maniacs and we can say that Lucha Legends is very similar to these two, especially in terms of appearance. Crisp visuals and a fitting soundtrack will make you feel as if you are sitting in the audience, while the Super Wild feature and the Free spins feature will provide excitement and plenty of payouts, especially if you activate the Power Up mode. We really like Mexican wrestling and that is probably why we have a soft spot for all video slots packed with luchadores, but we are positive you will also love them the minute you start playing the 2018 release.
