ELK Studios latest breath fresh life into their online slot gaming catalogue. Over the last year or so, we’ve seen cautious, samey, and generally stereotypical slot machine games from ELK Studios.
Their new Wild Toro slot is charging towards something wholly new, though, and the casino software developers have to be given credit for what they’ve come up with in this new game.
Wild Toro is, of course, a matador and bull themed video slot, although not quite one like you have seen before.
ELK Studios have designed this one using absolutely top quality 3D graphics, and the game carries a rather comedic overtone to its theme, too.
For instance, if you’re seriously against bullfighting, you might like to know that in this game, the bull wins. The matador is in for a torrid time, and the worse his time gets, the more wilds and wins you are going to bag in this new 5-reel, 178-line 3D slot.
How to play it
Wild Toro offers players something new in the fact that there are 178 paylines spread over its 5 reels. There is an unusual number of lines to appear in a slot, but we’re not complaining. The more lines present on the reels, the more damage the bull can do.
Those paylines are fixed into place, but you won’t have to wager on each and every one of them. In fact, wagers can cost as little as $0.20 per spin, or as much as $100 a pop if you want to push the boat out.
That’s not too shabby at all for a slot with this many ways to win. Unfortunately, wagers are still placed via betting strategies. ELK Studios still hasn’t done away with this minor inconvenience.
How much can you win?
This new slot machine is non-progressive in nature, meaning that its jackpot is fixed. Players can expect a fixed jackpot prize of 225,000 coins in total. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to hit a top prize anywhere near that figure – try around 1,000 coins.
ELK Studios swears blind that this prize can be won in their game, though, so we’ll have to take their word for that.
Play For Real Money Wild Toro Slot With These Bonuses:
Wild symbols: The wild symbols in the Wild Toro slot actually features two wild symbols. First up, there is the Wild Toro logo. These symbols appear all of the time, and can replace all other icons in the slot have for the Toro and Matador icons.
The second wild is the Toro symbol, and it only appears in the bonus features.
Scatter symbols: The Matador is this slot’s scatter symbol. Matadors can trigger a Matador Re-Spin Challenge bonus when they appear in any positions on the reels. Scatters don’t do too much more than that, so they are not as rewarding as you might find in many other slot machine games. Fortunately, you won’t be relying on scatters to bag the big wins.
Matador Re-Spin Challenge bonus: This feature is basically a re-spins bonus round. Players will get 3 free re-spins to enjoy. This is where the Toro wild appears. It can appear on the reels, and walking its way from the leftmost reel to the right during your re-spins. This Walking Wild can replace all other icons, save for scatters.
Toro Goes Wild bonus: A second bonus round is also present in ELK Studio’s Wild Toro slot. This is activated at random via the base game. In it, the Toro will go absolutely berserk and chase down any matador symbols which appear on the reels.
The Toro can charge up, down, and across the reels, leaving behind a trail of wilds in his dust. You can pocket fairly impressive wins with this rather nifty feature.
Overall experience and final thoughts
Wild Toro is certainly a vast improvement on many of the other ELK Studios slots we have seen over the last year or so. Wilds are the key to big wins in this slot machine – the more you land, the bigger wins you will pocket.
Fortunately, there are plenty of opportunities to do so. Wild Toro should become the benchmark for all other ELK Studios slots in the future. This game is original, it is witty, it is creative, and it has decent cash prizes to cough up (even if we couldn’t get our hands on that 225,000-coin haul), so do give it a whirl.
You should be able to find this game at all good casinos offering ELK Studios software from November onwards.
