Where to play?
Taco Brothers: Saving Christmas is Elk Studios’ slot machine and as you could tell it’s got a mixed inspiration, using both the Christmas holidays and Mexico for its theme. There is another game, called simply Taco Brothers, which is the slot machine that inspired this one. With the exception of the Christmas connection from this one, these are identical games.
243 ways to win are present on the 5×3 reels offered by this game. The slot is played with 100 coins each round, while the total bet is chosen from a predetermined list, of $0.10 to $100.
Theme & Developer
Taco Brothers, at its origins, is a Mexican themed slot machine that has a story revolving around three brothers called Paso, Pepe and Pico. There is a beautiful Senorita as well in there, along with her strict father, Captain Diaz. The purely Mexican theme of the original has been altered for Saving Christmas, so that it could fit with the winter holidays, giving the slot’s players a good reason to return to it.
There are differences in the design only, with Paso holding a candy cane stick instead of a cigar, Pepe wearing a red Santa hat, while Pico is offering a gift instead of a firecracker. Various decorations have been added to other symbols as well, including the Golden Bell, the Guitar, Cactus, Whiskey bottle and Shovel.
ELK Studios is still a small developer, even though they’ve been working hard at it for the past 5 years. They have just 15 slot machines released so far, but what they lack in speed they more than make up for with attention to detail and the results are usually stunning in terms of graphics and features.
Base Game Features
I’ve noticed quite a few good features that are offered in this game, and the first one I’d like to mention is the Golden Bell Wild. You may use this feature only to replace a regular symbol, which means that there are two that don’t get its help, the second wild and the scatter.
The other type of wild symbol has the Taco Brothers Wild logo showing on it. Having two symbols with this logo appear on the reels will trigger a Re-Spin feature, This gives you a chance at landing a third symbol, a scatter, and so with their help you could get into the free spins feature.
Bonus Game Features
A bonus feature, called The Wild Escape, will be triggered if the player gets three Safe symbols on the reels. As scatters, it appears that you only need them present, not in any particular position. A multiplier of 1x to 3x from the exploded safe will then be applied to all wins you get inside.
While you’re playing your free spins, the brothers may drop on the 5th reel, one by one, giving you Running Wilds. These wilds move on the reels, from right to left, one position at a time, until they leave the screen. In the process, they act as replacements for most symbols, the Senorita and Cpt Diaz ones being exceptions. Once all the brothers have managed to escape, the feature ends.
Cpt Diaz is a symbol that will bring out keys and will then imprison the current Running Wild. The bonus game can end up early if the brothers are all in jail.
On the other hand, there is a positive symbol as well, Senorita being able to restart the Running Wilds brothers, giving them new free spins. The imprisoned brothers will be released by her.
With 3x multipliers from the free spins and the best possible combo formed, a reward of 1,200 coins is possible, the value reaching $600.
Taco Brothers: Saving Christmas is not the best Christmas slot around, but if you’re looking for games that aren’t just about Santa, then this might fit the bill. It’s a good game otherwise.Play Now With €600 + 200 Free Spins Welcome Package
