A proud matador, a raging bull and a rowdy crowd – welcome to a Spanish Corrida, the traditional bull fights practiced for centuries in some countries, especially Spain and Mexico. Elk Studios took up the theme and gave it their own creative twist on the Wild Toro slot. Watch in awe as the bull is chasing the sneaky Matador Diaz Jr., creating trails of Wild symbols for mega wins of up to 2,250x your bet.
Wild Toro is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 178 connecting pay lines with Toro Walking Wilds, Matador Re-Spins and a Toro Goes Wild bonus round. Pays are awarded for adjacent connecting symbols from left to right. You can attend the corrida on desktop or mobile from 0.20 to 100 credits per spin.
The RTP for the medium to high variance game is set at 96.40%. You can use different betting strategies in addition to the standard Autospin featuret to personalize your gaming experience.
Wild Toro is set in front of a typical Spanish square or better known as “corrida” where initially these bull fights were held with the crowds gathered around the square cheering for their idol. It is meanwhile expected that slots designed by this young Swedish game provider are of the highest quality, be it for crisp graphics with intricate reel symbols or stunning animations that are executed flawlessly at all times.
Pay symbols can all be stacked, starting with intricately crafted coins in bronze, silver and gold at the low end as and a traditional Spanish fan, an orange arrangement and a beautiful red rose at the high end. Top pay is a five of a kind roses with 10x your bet. No scatters in this game but the standard wild is the slot logo.
The Matador symbol initiates the Re-Spins feature when appearing on reels 2,3 and 4 while the Wild Toro appears only on reel 5 and is a walking wild that will chase the matador across the screen to produce trails of wilds.
Wild Toro does not have your usual Free Spins round or bonus game, instead it is more like an evolving story where one event leads to another, just like it would be taken straight from a real bull fight. Read on as we are going through each of the features on this game.
It starts with the Wild Toro symbol that appears on the rightmost reel only, triggering the Toro Walking Wild feature every time it lands on a spin. Toro moves reel by reel from right to left and triggers a re-spin for every move. The feature continues until Toro reaches the leftmost reel and then the collected wins are paid out.
However, the story changes should Senor Diaz Jr., the cheeky matador, land while the feature is in progress. At this point the Toro Goes Wild Bonus Game is triggered.
A second chance, and a much higher one at that, to trigger the bonus game is when three matadors land on the middle three reels on a spin, starting the Matador Challenge. A re-spin is awarded for each matador as Senor Diaz Jr. is taunting and challenging the Wild Toro to make an appearance on the fifth reel. The chances for this to happen are drastically increased during the challenge.
Every additional matador appearing during the challenge brings an additional re-spin. The feature ends when all matador re-spins have been played out or if the Wild Toro appears to take up the challenge.
The first two features on this slot serve as a prologue to the main event, The Toro Goes Wild bonus game. This intense and action filled bonus round provides the chance only to hit the maximum win for the slot. It is instantly triggered when the Matador and the Wild Toro land on the reels in a single spin or via the other two features.
The Wild Toro turns into a furious, raging bull and attacks all matadors in sight, moving first vertically then horizontally, leaving a trail of Wild symbols behind for the next re-spin. After the win for the current spin is paid out the Wild Toro returns to his normal self, the Toro Walking Wild, and moves one reel to the left and after the re-spin again to the right if another matador lands, creating a further trail of wilds with more chances for big wins.
The feature ends when Toro has reached the left most reel without any further matador symbols appearing on the re-spin. Only one Toro at a time actively attacks Matadors.
Are we up on our feet and cheering for the matador or even for the fighting bull after playing on Wild Toro? Indeed we are as this creation from Elk Studios provides a spectacular gaming experience with innovative pay mechanics, stunning animations and of course that mega win potential of 2,250x bet, which in turn is making it a highly volatile game. Add to that the stacked pay symbols and you could go on a rather long streak of empty spins that leads us to recommend some caution on the bet size.
