Now here is a slot that is going to appeal to slots comrades all over the world… a Cuban-themed slot title from Las Vegas-based developer Bally Technologies in the form of Havana Cubana.
I’ve reviewed a lot of slot titles over the years but I have to say that this is my first experience of such a complete Cuban-themed slot game. This 5 reel, 40 payline slot has all the symbols that you would associate with the Communist country such as a sexy lady, cocktail drink, a bottle of spirit, maracas, dominoes and the mighty Cuban cigars. There are also the regular Jack, Queen, King and Ace symbols.
The first thing you will notice on this slot is the presence of two Wild symbols. The first Wild is the sexy lady and she substitutes for all other symbols except for the bonus symbols to complete winning combinations.

The second Wild comes in the form of the Directional Wild that is represented by a compass. If you hit this symbol on reels 2 and/ or 4 then you will trigger the Directional Wilds Bonus. Before any pay outs are confirmed, the compass will spin first to randomly point in the direction that all symbols in that direction will then turn into the sexy lady Wild. However, if the compass is on the edge of the reels and points off the reels then no symbols will turn Wild. The Directional Wilds Bonus can be triggered during the base game and the free spins bonus round. The only difference is that in the free spins bonus round there is a sexy lady Wild on a yellow background and a sexy lady Wild on a brown background that appear on the reels. The type of sexy lady Wild that is revealed depends on the positioning of the compass symbol when it appears on the reels.

The Free Games symbol is the key to triggering the free spins bonus round. You must hit three Free Games symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 to trigger the free spins bonus round. You will be awarded with 5 free spins initially with a 3x multiplier. It is not possible to re-trigger the free spins.
This is one of the more unique slots that I have reviewed recently. The Directional Wilds Bonus is a fantastic feature to have and compensates for the lack of free spins you can win on the free spins bonus round. If you find yourself becoming enthralled by the Directional Wilds feature then it’s worth checking out Bally Technologies’ other Directional Wilds slot, Big Vegas.
