The wombat says: Arrrrrrrrribba! 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?
OK, so you might be expecting a high street Mexican restaurant but Taco Brothers is actually a five reel, ‘243 Ways to win’ 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.
Here’s the science. This is a 5 reel and 3 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 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.
One of Elk’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. If you like the Mexican theme, give the Spinata Grande slot a go too. That’s also good!
So what’s the aim of the Taco Brothers slot? Well, to win big of course, but also to help the three lads 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, well, 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 Leveler – Your bet level will increase twice for each 5 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, as well as other random Mexican essentials: guitars, cacti, lanterns, spades and, of course, tequila.
These will all get you up to 80 coins, but finding Pico will win you up to 100, getting Pepe 330 coins, and seeing Paso on the reels will bag you a whopping 400 coins.
Wild Escape Bonus
Get 3 Safe symbols and you trigger 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 – this is called 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 3 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!
Taco Brothers Slot on your Mobile
And there’s more news for you, amigos. There is a mobile Taco Brothers slot- this game works on phablets, tablets and mobiles as well as desktops and mobiles. Play it on your horse if you want!
The 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 3 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.
What are the Advanced Betting Strategies on the Taco Brothers slot
Most ELK 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.
Are there any other Taco Bros slots?
Yes- ELK 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.
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 feauture details above). The other will stand on 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).
