Lucha Libre Online Pokie With Wrestling Theme
Added: April 4, 2018
Realtime Gaming has announced the release of a sequel online pokie titled Lucha Libre 2. It will soon be available at Australian online casinos like Fair Go. Lucha Libre is a form of pro wrestling popular in Latin American countries, particularly Mexico. It is closer to the format of WWE rather than the more formal and organized sport of wrestling you will find in the Olympics.
The online pokie is structured as a wrestling bout between Taco Malo and Guaca Molio. Both these wrestlers, or luchadors as they are called, appear as symbols on the reels. The other thematic symbols include wrestling ring, mask, commentator, championship belt, trophy, bout poster, television, chips and dip and wrestler trump cards. To ensure that players do not miss the Mexican connection the symbols include red chili, rum and tequila as well. The background audio is punctuated by the ringing of the bell, shouts from spectators and sounds from the ring.
The success of Lucha Libre can be attributed to the gaming features that are connected with wrestling theme. The wrestlers appear as stacked wilds on reel 3. If you get a full stack then other benefits will accrue. The payouts may be doubled or the wrestler may jump out and replace some other symbols as wilds. The wrestling ring awards scatter payouts when the symbols appear anywhere on the reels. The mask awards scatter payouts when symbols appear scattered left to right.
The Time to Rumble feature is triggered by landing three or more wrestling rings anywhere on the reels. You have to select one of the three wrestling moves. If your wrestler wins the bout by employing the move then you are randomly awarded one from three sets of high payout free spins. These are 14 free spins with doubled payouts, 10 free spins with doubled payouts and 1 Mask of Fiery Doom spin or 6 free spins with 2 Mask of Fiery Doom spins. Even if your wrestler loses you do not return empty handed. You are randomly awarded one from three sets of free spins that have lower payout potential. These are 12 free spins, 9 free spins or 6 free spins with 1 Mask of Fiery Doom spin.
The Mask of Fiery Doom spin may also be triggered if masks appear on reels 1 and 2 with any of the wrestlers on reel 3. Up to 4 reels are held with scattered masks in all positions while the other reels spin. Lucha Libre is a 5x3 online pokie with 25 selectable paylines.
