Paco And The Popping Peppers by Betsoft has five reels with three rows and up to thirty paylines; with the spinning action taking place on a backdrop surrounded by Mexican paraphernalia including sombreros and chilli peppers; Paco himself occasionally prances to the left of the stage.
Paco, and he’s the headliner of Paco And The Popping Peppers, a video slot game with an odd theme and two original bonus features. Paco is part of a town overrun with despair and depression with only Paco to put it right.
Paco and the Popping Peppers has a range of features and numerous bonuses, multipliers, and autoplay spins; where players get to spin your bet amount for up to one hundred turns. The Max Bet option enables players to select all paylines at their current coin value. Paco and the Popping Peppers is missing a gamble feature, but the lucrative bonuses make up for it, so players should keep playing until they hit a bonus.
The symbols are all related to the Mexican theme, and they are a plethora of fruit or vegetables including a tomato, an onion, a pineapple, red/green peppers and garlic.
The wild symbol in Paco and the Popping Peppers is a donkey-shaped pinata, and the scatter symbol is a straw hut that activated the main feature.
Features of Paco and the Popping Peppers
Each time players land a winning combination in the primary game; those icons involved become ‘popped’ and more will fall in from above to fill up the empty spaces, offering the possibility for even more winning combinations and so the process continues.
Also, each time successive winning combination will increase the multiplier for the next win, and players can see this increase on the meter to the right of the reels.
The Hut Bonus is activated by landing three or more of the hut scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, and players will get an opportunity to play a higher/lower card game. It’s quite easy and takes place on a noticeboard – a card is drawn, and all players must do is choose whether they think the next card will be either lower or higher. Players get three lives here and will be rewarded depending on the number of correct answers.
Sadly, Paco and the Popping Peppers does not possess a progressive jackpot, although players will be able to earn up to five-hundred coins per active line in the primary game. To win this jackpot, players need to land five of the Donkey Piñatas on an active payline.
