The Wombat says: “¡Qué rollo!, amigos y amigas”. We’re in Santa Maria with the Taco Brothers slot in Mexico and it’s 1881. Santa Maria is a sleepy village that lives in peace, whose inhabitants eat tacos and watch the world go by. It sounds like my kind of place.
Until one day that is, when the evil genius Captain Diaz shows up stealing all the villagers’ money AND making it illegal to eat tacos… What kind of new evil is this? Enter Paso, Pepe and Pico – the Taco Brothers – who will fight to take back the Santa Maria’s riches once and for all. Viva La Enchilada!
What is Taco Bros?
Here are the Taco Facts. This is a five reel and three row game with a maximum win of 1500x your bet. There are 243 Ways to Win on this Medium variance game that was launched by ELK Studios in November 2015. Time flies!
Features include a Bonus Game, Re-spins, Walking Symbols, Moving Wilds and Free Spins. Read on for the full details below.
The minimum bet is 0.01 and the maximum 50.00 in pounds, euros or dollars.
OK, so you might have been expecting a high street Mexican restaurant but Taco Brothers is actually a top video slot from ELK Studios: those geniuses behind slots like the Poltava slot and the dance-off that is DJ Wild.
Oh and there’s the Bloopers slot machine as well, if you like a bit of Hollywood glamour.
One of ELK Studio’s Best
We’d say that the Taco Brothers slot is one of their best to boot. We just love the original and varied game play, and innovative graphics – both of which gives the Taco Brothers slot the edge over many of its competitors.
The soundtrack is excellent, too. ” ¡Qué padre!” as they say in Mexico. “Cool!”
If you like the Mexican theme, give the Spinata Grande slot a go too. That’s also good! and Esqueleto Explosive of course.
So what’s the aim of the Taco Brothers slot? Well, to win big of course, but also to help three Mexican dudes blow up the safe where bad guy Captain Diaz is holding ALL the tacos, and restore peace and happiness back to Santa Maria.
Oh, and don’t forget to rescue the señorita, too…
And if you like this game, well there’s also the Taco Brothers Saving Christmas slot which is similar but more festive!
This slot includes Taco Brothers Re-spins, a Wild Escape Bonus, Running Wilds, Exploding Safe Multipliers and Free Spins.
Plus some advanced betting strategies that really keep things interesting:
– The Jumper – Here the bet level increases after winning each round but resets if you lose.
– The Leveller – Your bet level will increase twice for each five losing rounds and resets on a win.
– The Booster – The bet will increase once for each losing round and resets if you win.
Taco Brothers Treasure
The symbols on the reel range from tools you’ll need for your mission and other random Mexican essentials: guitars, cacti, lanterns, spades and, of course, tequila.
These will all trigger an 80 coin win in a combination. Finding Pico will win you up to 100, getting Pepe 330 coins, and seeing combos of Paso on the reels will set off a 400 coin win.
Wild Escape Bonus
Land three Safe symbols and you set off the Bonus. Once triggered, Free Spins will be awarded, and all wins during these spins will be multiplied by the Exploding Safe Multiplier (thanks to Pico and his dynamite).
During the Free Spins, the Taco Brothers also try to escape across the reels – a cool feature known as Running Wilds.
These free spins will go on until Pepe, Pico and Paso have all escaped. But, if Captain Diaz shows up on the reels, one Taco brother will be imprisoned, and the bonus ends when all three brothers have been put in the clink.
But don’t panic, a sexy senorita can save the day. If she appears on the reels, one of the brothers is set free and the bonus continues! Que guapa!
Taco Brothers Slot on your Mobile
And there’s more news for you, amigos. The Taco Brothers slot works well on tablets, desktops and mobiles, so you can play it on the go. Play it on your mule if you want!
This game is a cracker, and one this Wombat never gets tired of playing.
Look out for the bonkers super-fast spin feature; where the 5th reel starts turning like a Tasmanian Devil as you wait to see if you’ll get three safe symbols on the reels…
Wombat score: 5/5
The Taco Brothers slot is an all-round tasty Mexican treat that’s available both as a mobile slot and desktop game.
Can we give this game more than 5/5? We better not. Es muy bueno, amigos.
What are the Advanced Betting Strategies on the Taco Brothers slot
Most ELK Studios games have these. They are basically a way of dialing in a certain way of playing automatic spins. So the “Jumper”, for example, increases your bet after winning each round but resets if you lose. So it’s like a Positive Progression system that accelerates winnings if you are geting a run of good luck.
You don’t need to activate any of these strategies- you can simply spin the reels normally. This feature is not available in all jurisdictions (like the UK for example).
Are there any other Taco Bros slots?
Yes- ELK Studios also launched Taco Brothers Save Christmas, but it is basically a skin of the original game with a festive feel. We prefer the original game.
In June 2023 they launched Taco Brothers Derailed, a sequel. This one is quite a bit different with 6 reels and a top jackpot of 10,000x your bet. Worth a go.
How many Wild symbols are there in Taco Bros?
There are 2 wilds in the game! (Why settle for one)? The first is the slot name logo and if you land a couple of these, you get a re-spin for a shot at a third Safe symbol (see the safe feature details above). The other will stand in for all symbols except the Safe to make up wins.
What are the highest paying symbols to look out for?
The highest paying symbols on this slot game are the 3 Mexican dudes: Paso (the clever one), Pico (the guy who blows stuff up), and Pepe (the musical one with the guitar).
What are the Special Symbols in this game?
There are quite a few of them! The Golden Bell is wild.
Then there’s a Taco Brothers Wild which gives you a re-spin if 2 land on reels 2 & 4. You’ll get a re-spin on any reel that doesn’t have a safe scatter or Taco Brothers wild, giving you an extra go at getting three Safe Scatters to set off the Escape Free Spins feature.
If you drop in a safe scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5 you will trigger the Wild Escape Free Spins bonus. Before the action begins, a bomb explodes and uncovers a multiplier (1x, 2x or 3x). You’ll head to a bonus reel-set with the 3 brothers plus Captain Diaz and the Señorita, Captain Diaz’ daughter.
The free spins have a Running Wild. The brothers can land one at a time on the last reel and act as a wild, walking their way across the reel-set. If the evil Captain Diaz symbol lands on screen, he will block the brother and freeze him.
Then if you see the Señorita, she’ll unblock the wild brother and can also re-start running wilds and trigger new free spins. The action continues until all of the brothers escape or are thrown in the slammer. Try and get Paso, Pepe and Pico to blow up the safe and empty the vault if you can.
