Lucha Maniacs Slot Machine
Lucha Maniacs is one of several Mexican wrestling slots that I’ve seen released in recent years, and this time we’re looking at a game that will come via Yggdrasil Gaming. The graphics are excellent, as are the features that we know will be included in it.
Those that check out Lucha Maniacs should be prepared to wager on 20 active lines, if they want the slot’s 5 reels to spin for them. Feature wise, the game does very well, and it offers scatters, free spins with 3 different features, wilds, a Poster Bonus game and the option of using a Golden Bet.
Betting and Prizes
20 active lines are offered in Lucha Maniacs, giving you the option only to pick how much the 20 coins will be worth, nothing else. The minimum bet that will get the 5 reels going will be worth $0.20. At the other end of the betting range, be prepared to spend at most a couple of dollars per line. Of note in this case is that the slot also has a Golden Bet option, which will give you an additional feature during the free spins.
The slot is going to come out with an average RTP of 96%, which is a good percentage for a modern release. There are multipliers offered in the game, so the rewards can be improved, and the slot ends up being a bit more exciting as well.
Lucha Maniacs Slot Features
Several types of wild symbols exist here, and that’s just for this one type of features, with a few others present and providing you with a lot of variety as you play. You can get as you spin the reels regular wild symbols (all the time), Random Wilds (during free spins), Sticky Wilds (during free spins, on the middle three reels and in the position from the center) and Wrestler Wilds (also during free spins, used to replace one type of wrestler).
The Poster Bonus Game will be another way for you to have some fun playing Lucha Maniacs. Just two Bonus symbols will be enough to get you inside, and once there, you have a bonus game which could bring you rewards of 20 to 80 coins, or 7 free spins with three or four types of features.
If you have at least three Bonus symbols that round, then you get to the free spins directly, no bonus game needed. 3, 4 or 5 triggering symbols will net you 7, 15 or 30 free games, all of them using 3 features (4 features if you had Golden Bet active).
As for the features that you can have active during the free spins, you’re required to make picks from the tickets displayed in front of you, and the game could offer you several options. You might get 2 or 4 additional free spins, 1 or 2 random wilds, 1 sticky wild on one of the middle reels, a 3x multiplier for one of the wrestlers, a wrestler turned into a wild, a stacked wrestler, or you could get wrestler symbols work together as a tag team.
Theme & Design
The Mexican wrestler theme has always made for great entertainment, and that’s true for slot machines that rely on them as well, not just for real life shows. In the case of this slot, you have a modern looking design, which has its feature symbols, alongside four high-paying Mexican wrestler icons and four low-paying card suits.
Lucha Maniacs has proven itself an entertaining slot machine, with great graphics and a long list of features that gives you plenty of variety.
