The Wombat says: It’s Yuletide, and it’s the time of year to play ELK Studios a Christmas version of Taco Brothers slot. ELK Studios are the genius designers behind the likes of the Wild Toro slot machine, in case you were wondering.
So what’s different with this slot and Taco Brothers? Well, not a lot really, we’ll be honest. In fact, you could say Taco Brothers Saving Christmas is basically the same game with a bit of tinsel thrown on top, and a few jingle bells. But that would be rude, so we’re not saying that. Ok, well maybe we are a tiny bit…
We’re a great fan of Mexican themed slot the Chilli Gold 2 slot and the Taco Brothers slots. Bring it on!
Taco Brothers Saving Christmas Slot Game Play
Your symbols in this festive slot are the same as the normal game, but all have a Christmas twist to them; think fairy lights, wrapping paper, gift cards and seasonal staples- holly and ivy. Paso, Pepe and Pico themselves are the high value symbols, while the guitar, the cacti, the lantern and spade and, of course, Christmas tequila make up the lower pay outs. There is one difference in the gameplay this time though, and that’s the shiny Christmas Bell, which will make up the Wild in the base game.
So how DO Taco Brothers Save Christmas? Well, they need to blow up the safe where Captain Diaz is holding ALL the Xmas tacos ransom, to restore ‘peace on earth to all mankind’, and bring yuletide happiness to Santa Maria. All while earning you some nice payouts… Plus Taco Brothers Saving Christmas is a ‘243 ways to win’ slot, which really does feel like Christmas!
There’s a whole heavenly host of Christmas cracking features for you in this slot, including Taco Brothers Respins, Running Wilds, Exploding Safe Multipliers and Free Spins. Phew! Taco Brothers Respins are triggered by landing 2 or more of the Taco Brother Wild logo symbols. They will then give you another chance to spin for Scatters (to trigger the Bonus round) on any of the reels that don’t already have Scatters on them!
Wild Escape Bonus
If you find 3x Safe Scatters symbols along the reels, you’ll trigger off the Wild Escape Bonus Round. Here you’ll be treated to Free Spins, and all wins will be multiplied by the Exploding Safe Multiplier.
But that’s not all Wombat fans! During this Free Spin round, the Taco Brothers will also try to escape across the reels – this is called Running Wilds – and your Spins will continue until Pepe, Pico and Paso have all broken out.
If Captain Diaz shows up on the reels, a Taco brother will be thrown into the Christmas clink. Your festive bonus round will end when all 3 siblings are imprisoned. But don’t worry, just as in the original game, the sexy senorita can save your Spins (as well as Pepe, Pico and Paso). When she appears on the reels, one of the brothers is set free and the bonus continues!
Choose your bets
This slot also has some advanced betting strategies to keep you busy over the festive period…
The Jumper – Your bet level will increase after a win but resets if you lose.
