El Torero – Take the bull by the horns!

Some slots are themed around simple stuff, others take on a more complex setting. Some delve into the surreal or fantastic, others reflect pieces of reality. Drawing inspiration from Spanish culture, the slot game to be talked about just now goes by the name of El Torero and one thing is certain: it can surely transport you into a world of thrills!

As it is usual with a good amount of games of this type, this one has 10 paylines and 5 reels to make it spin. It has a number of things that will grab the attention of gamblers, like free spins and dynamic animations (for example, when some of the symbols are lined up to form a winning combo, you get a dose of flashy movements as celebration, as well as a clear indicator of the lines that were successfully spun). It is not meant to feel insulting to Spaniards at all; everything it depicts is purely part of a thematic idea for the game – complete with a fitting opening sound sequence, a suitable background and quite lovable symbols.

Symbols

Obviously, together with the never-absent card icons, there will be symbol to play with which derive from Spanish culture, such as: a bullfighter or matador (that is what they title conveys), red roses, raging bulls, a lady with a fan, a traditional type of hat, a rustic guitar. As always, the symbols that are worth less are the card ones, followed by the thematic ones. The 10, Jack and Queen, King and Ace icons have values ranging from 5 to 100, while the others (the feathered cap, guitar and rose) go from 15 to 250 (depending on how many are landed, from a minimum of 3 to a maximum of 5). The only ones that reward the player even for 2x shown are the lady and the matador (values going from 2 to 500, and 10 to a thousand, respectively), the last also acting as the Wild symbol. The Scatter is the bull, functioning as expected: three of them grant you free spins, in a number of 10 – during which they bullfighter can pitch in, with enough luck, and take your stakes sky-high!

Conclusion

This game is a fine example of “what you see if what you get”. It does not go out of its way complicating anything, but instead keeps it simple and stylish – with an appealing look and nicely-working features, this slot can make it on any player’s “to-play” list without any problem and, at the end of the day, will feel like a good choice made.
