Somebody is stealing Tacos and it’s up to you to steal them back in this Taco Brothers slot online.

Despite having what is (potentially) a bit of a stereotypical premise, this Elk slot machine is surprisingly fun.

Don’t get us wrong, this is not the greatest video slot in the world, but one that we suspect you will happily spend a few dollars thanks to colourful graphics and happy wins.

The Taco Brothers are three Mexican brothers who, supposedly, love tacos. If that was not enough, there is a corrupt police officer who loves tacos. Of course, since he is corrupt he is not going to buy his own. He is going to steal them instead.

The whole story of this Taco Brothers slot is stopping Captain Diaz stealing those tacos. How a storyline like this got through R&D is beyond us.

Storyline issues aside, the game is well-themed. The music is very ‘Mexican’ and the aesthetics of the slot play into the story.

For example; the reels are based on the three brothers blowing up safes to steal their tacos back. Basically, it is not just a theme that has been slapped onto a game, it genuinely feels original, a bit like the Big Bad Wolf slot.

We didn’t expect anything less from Elk, however.

Slot features more fun than eating a pile of delicious tacos

Whenever two taco brothers appear on the screen, their reels will remain stuck in place. You will then be given a free respin on the other reels.

Honestly, this can feel like the most pointless features in this online casino game. This feature has popped up a good few dozen times for us when we have played the Taco Brothers game, and we won maybe once or twice.

It is thrilling when it appears because of the potential to win, but don’t be too disappointed if the re-spins don’t pay off in this 243 ways to win slot machine.

This feature is meant to give you the occasional added-thrill till you can trigger the big taco stealing bonus game – a bit like the Strike feature in the Second Strike slot.

The Taco Brothers slot free spins is your main bonus game

To trigger the bonus game, you will need to get 3 safes on the screen. When this happens, there will be an explosion.

Every single symbol on the reels bar one safe will just disappear. Behind the safe door will be a multiplier of either 1x, 2x or 3x.

Since you have caused a whopping explosion, you and the rest of the Taco Brothers are going to fall into a newly formed hole in the ground. Really, this just means that the setting of the game will change.

You will be joined by one of the Taco brothers who had the foresight to know this would happen. He falls delicately to the bottom of the fifth reel.

He is now a wild and on each spin, he will move to the left. Once he’s moved across the five reels he is gone, a new Taco Brother will drop down and the process will repeat.

Theoretically, these are unlimited free spins bonuses

Eventually, Captain Diaz is going to show up and chase the brothers away for stealing tacos (because this is a huge crime) and the brothers run about trying to capture loot until they are caught.

The Senorita symbol will release any brothers that are caught. As long as the brothers are not caught, the free spins mode will continue. In theory, there is no limit to the free spin rounds, much like in Sunset Delight by Thunderkick.

Some people get a couple, others may get upwards of forty. Our average was around the twenty mark.

A complicated premise, but uncomplicated spins

Yes, this does sound like a complicated feature and it is.

However, go with the flow. Just watch the money roll in. You don’t really need to understand what is going on as your decision process will not be impacted at all.

The concept of this Taco Brothers online slot is unique. It is likely not going to be everybody’s cup of joe, but when the free spins feature gets rolling the game is very engaging.

The graphics really help to round this out to be a tremendous fun game to play, much like our other favourite Mexican themed slot Esqueleto Explosivo.

Plus you get those great automatic betting strategies as you do with all Elk games, one of the features we love the most about them.
