As our regular players will know all too well, we here at Fortune Frenzy are obsessed with new games, and generally bring you two or three new slots or casino games each and every week. We tell you this not to brag, but to give context to what we’re about to tell you. El Jackpotto is probably one of our favourite games that we’ve launched on our site in the last 6 months – and we’re talking about dozens and dozens of games here. What makes this game so special? You’ll just have to read on to find out.
Skirting the lines between being a tribute to the Mexican tradition of lucha libre and downright cultural appropriation, El Jackpotto is a blur of colour and excitement from Blueprint Gaming – one of our favourite upcoming developers to work with. Set against the backdrop of a Mexican tortilla cart, and drawing inspiration from everything Mexican – from Dia del Muerto and chillies to piñatas and sombreros – this game is a delight for all the senses.
The basics of this slot are pretty simple to get your head around, with the real fun coming from the myriad bonus features attached to the game. In the game there’s 5 reel, across which you’ll find 20 fixed paylines; this allows for wagers totalling between 20p and £100 – maybe not one for the highest of rollers, but with a medium high variance, this slot will appeal to those with a bit of a taste for risk.
The aim of the game is mostly to trigger the bonus feature, and ultimately become the Ultimate Luchador Champion. Symbols include Wild Chillies (the wild), Wrestling Belts, Piñatas, and a whole range of other lucha libre related items.
Like we’ve been saying throughout, the real fun begins when you start hitting those bonus features in the slot. You’re in for a real treat, let’s fill you in on some of them:
- Spank that Ass Bonus feature – choose pick piñatas to remove possible prizes (in the style of Deal or No Deal); you’ll then be given an offer of a prize by El Jackpotto (think The Banker), and you can choose to accept it, or keep playing for the hopes of bigger cash prizes
- Pound for Pound Bonus feature – you choose one of the three Wrestling Belts (Bronze, Silver or Gold), and take on fighters of increasing difficulty. If you get a Burrito on your way, you’ll enter the Big Money Bonus feature (more on that later)
El Jackpotto Rocket Free Spins feature – simply enjoy 5 extra spins with El Jackpotto chilling out by the side of your reels – if he detonates his rocket, you’ll get El Jackpotto wilds randomly added to the reels
- Ready to Rumble Free Spins feature – take on the reining champion El Capitan with multiplying wilds active. Defeat him by collecting three damage symbols, with the chance to gain extra streaks and bonuses along the way
How Does the Game Perform?
We’ve got loads of Blueprint Gaming titles at our casino now, and we’ll keep adding them for good reason. Not only do these games bring a guaranteed flare of colour and fun to our roster, they’re also playable on all devices, so whether you access Fortune Frenzy on desktop, mobile or tablet devices, you can enjoy all the thrills of this slot.
For such a feature rich and graphically impressive game, you’ll be amazed how smoothly it runs, and how great the animation looks on all sized screens. There’s often a concern with games of this level of complexity that they’ll compromise with mobile quality, but seeing as we’re a mobile first casino, we’ve checked and double checked that El Jackpotto runs and looks great, no matter what device you’re using.
The Features You Should Look Out For
While all the other bonus features we mentioned before are great for a bit of fun and growing your bankroll, the final feature that you really want to see gracing your screen is the Big Money Bonus feature. This feature is the one that really plays on the luchador theme of the whole slot, and asks the player to collect Ultimate Luchador Champion Bonus symbols through the course of the game; the more you collect, the bigger your rewards will be.
When you’ve collected enough symbols, you’ll be able to choose a piñata after each spin, which will tell you the value multiplier of the respin you’ve just earned. The luckiest players among you will be able to enter into the Super Wheel, where the prizes on offer are truly spectacular – you might be able to claim up to 10,000 times your initial stake!
Whether you’re into Mexican wrestling, or simply love vibrant slots with plenty of winning potential, there’s every chance you’re going to love playing on El Jackpotto. We mentioned at the start of this review that it’s one of our favourite additions to our site in recent times, and we hope that you can see why now that we’ve laid out all the bonus features and high quality gameplay you can find in the game. Give it a spin yourself for free in the demo mode, and switch to real money when you discover what an amazing slot it really is.
