El Fuego is where a little pot-washer turned wrestling maverick and the star of this Spinmatic slot. The El Fuego video slot is a one-armed bandit that is sure to ignite a fire in even the most novice of gamers. It has five reels, and fifteen paylines so can pack a punch in prize payouts.
El Fuego (literally 'The Fire' in Spanish) is based on the Mexican form of professional wrestling, featuring a line up of oddly looking characters. However, the real star of this Mexican wrestling-themed slot machine is the little Emilio, the weak-looking character who trains for wrestling by washing dishes at his local soup kitchen, yet in reality is the wrestling champion.
The gameplay of El Fuego is relatively simple, and players shouldn’t have too much trouble getting the hang of the slot machine if they have played video slots previously.
El Fuego can offer players some whopping wins - the best of which is a 2,000x line bet multiplier that is bestowed whenever five Emilio symbols align on a payline in a row.
Bonus features of El Fuego
El Fuego packs a punch in the prize department, similar to the main character's wrestling prowess. That is because the El Fuego presents several opportunities to boost players wins with some x2 multipliers. The first multiplier is triggered whenever the wild belt symbol lands and completes a winning line by replacing for other symbols.
Plus all wins are doubled whenever the game progresses into the free spins round. Unlike other video slots, this round is not activated by a scatter symbol, however, instead, it is activated whenever a winning combination of character symbols appear, with five free spins granted for any five-of-a-kind wrestler combination.
Gamers can continue to tally up the free spins during the bonus feature with all paytable symbols (including the game's lower-value icons of Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace) offering additional free spins.
Mexico is flush with colour and spice, and in many ways, the wackiness of El Fuego is a perfect example of Mexico's vibrant and exciting culture.
El Fuego might not get every gamer fired up for a fight, but it will undoubtedly ignite a fighting spark in any player who grew up watching the colourful world of wrestling.
There are undoubtedly several opportunities to win some knock out prizes in El Fuego, especially when the x2 multipliers tag into the fight during wild wins and free spins. So, are you ready for the battle of your life?
