Sometimes red, sometimes gold, depending on the feature you are currently in, but quite rewarding in both cases. The cartoon-like scenery will make you wonder when will Speedy Gonzales and Slowpoke Rodriguez appear on the reels, especially when mariachi start playing. The reels are set in a Mexican desert and, apart from the cacti, a genuine Mexican hombre and his burro will keep you company as yo spin the reels.
What We Love
We love the fact that things get really spicy when the Red Chilli Pepper lands on the reels, because it doubles the value of the winning combination.
Also, since it appears as stacked Wild as well, the possible winning combinations may drive your winnings through the roof. Six or more Red Chilli trigger the Free Games mode, allowing us to win up to 21 free spins and that’s when the pepper turns to Gold, with an option to rettriger free spins at any time, and also multiply the winnings by x2.
The Stellar Jackpot is an awesome feature as well, since it comes randomly, usually when you least expect it and the maximum prize is awesome as well – $50,000, provided that the maximum bet was wagered.
Even though there are six different levels to pass before entering the Jackpot round, Lightning Box Games made everything easier with three available lives, so if you make a mistake in some of the levels in outer space, do not worry, you will get one more chance to pass them and the players will rarely fail to go all the way, so some of the possible winnings are almost guaranteed. We also need to mention the colourful graphics and cute animations and who doesn’t like to listen to mariachi playing from time to time.
What We Do Not Like
Even though we said some good things about Stellar Jackpot, do not expect to trigger this feature very often, since at times you will finish the entire game without getting the chance to test your skills in space and even when you get there, matching three Mayor symbols tends to prove mission impossible.
The winning combinations come pretty often, that is a fact, but sometimes it may happen that you win much less than you bet and this can do a great deal of harm to your balance. You can try to increase the winnings in the Gamble Round, but that can prove to be a slippery slope, and could make you loose everything.
All in all the visit to a Mexican desert may be worthwhile, because of the hefty payouts offered in this Lightning Box Games title, which can shoot you to the stars and make you dance la Cucaracha.
You will have much fun on the ground as well, with a proper combination of stacked Wilds and Free Games, which also give a chance for solid winnings. The bet range will attract those who like to place high wagers, as well as those who like to play just for fun.
