There’s a real Wild Toro on screen and he rampages the screen leaving wilds everywhere.
The Wild Toro slot is the sort-of sequel to Taco Brothers, yet manages to make the wilds even more interesting.
This is not a ‘true’ sequel. It just seems to use some of the same characters. Those who played Taco Brothers may remember that Captain Diaz was the evil captain who would do anything to steal Tacos.
Continuing in the vein of stereotyping Latinos, Wild Toro features his son; Diaz Jr. Only rather than stealing tacos, he is an evil Matador in Spain.
We are not going to go into the whole backstory of this Wild Toro slot. We spent a lot of time on that on the Taco Brothers game and, honestly, as with other slots produced by Elk Studios, the story doesn’t matter.
They come up with these crazy in-depth stories for the game which most people don’t seem to care about.
Let’s be honest, when was the last time you selected a game based on whether the plot could keep you on the edge of your seat?
In traditional Elk Studios style, the game looks good. The colours pop out and you can tell that the team at Elk spent a lot of time making the game look nice and shiny.
If any game was built for mobile devices, it is this one. Shrink it down to a tiny screen and the vividness will blow your mind.
We have no problem with the theming of the Wild Toro mobile slot at all.
In fact, Wild Toro won ‘Game of the Year’ at the EGR Operators Awards. Many were certainly surprised, we included, and the first in line was Elk who didn’t think they’d take home the award: there was a lot of competition that year.
Elk have never been that brilliant at marketing themselves either (seriously, check out their website sometime), but clearly, the industry saw something special in this slot machine.
However, we do agree that this 178 ways to win slot game is fun and that is all that counts, right?
This Wild Toro online slot is themed upon the epic battles between man and bull.
And whilst humans tend to win bullfights, they claim to have turned bullfighting on its head to allow the bull to have a bit more of a chance.
The bull, cleverly dubbed Toro (or Bull in spanish), is your walking wild. When he appears, he will walk across the reels on each spin, from right to left.
The Matador is your evil Diaz Jr. If he and Toro appear on the reels at once, the toro will dart across, knocking the matador off his feet. In its wake, the ‘Wild Toro’ will leave a stream of wilds.
You have the potential to make some huge wins if the distance between the Matador and Toro are huge. This is nice but doesn’t show enough to keep the action flowing.
Generally, you don’t seem to see many big wins appear in the ‘base game’ nowadays, so it is always nice when a company bucks the trend a little, much like in the Pink Elephant slot or the classic Isis game.
If you find 3 matadors on the reels, you will get some re-spins. You will get a single re-spin for every matador (so, minimum 3).
Each matador that appears will give you an additional spin. The matadors will remain in place as wilds, all in the hope to get a Toro symbol around.
Honestly, the Wild Toro video slot isn’t one of the best Elk games. It’s not even as engaging as Taco Brothers, which whilst having a confusing feature, at least kept you on your toes.
The only sense of excitement occurs when you get that stream of wilds, but then that disappears, and you have 20-30 spins of nothing.
It doesn’t help that this is a high volatility slot either which means the wins are not even going to be that frequent.
This is not a slot game for everybody. You can try it out if you like games that rely on one big feature to bring the wins, especially as it has a wide betting range of 0.20 to 100 a spin.
However, if you prefer more varied action you might want to try the also award-winning Big Bad Wolf slot but by Quickspin.
