Free Lucha Legends slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Lucha Legends slot bears the name of those colourful Mexican wrestlers and joins a good few already using this theme, like RTG's Lucha Libre, Yggdrasil's Lucha Maniacs and possible the most popular of the lot, Thunderkick's Luchadora. You won't be surprised to hear that jazzy Latin music provides the soundtrack and a wrestling ring the background to the reels on which these masked musclemen enter into combat. There are a few wrestlers here and each has a signature move to demonstrate as and when the time is right, but will it be a grappling match to leave the ring with at least some of our bankroll?
On the reels...
Lucha Legends slot gives us 25 paying lines over 5 reels of 3 rows apiece and the icons appear stacked except for the Wilds and scatters. Pays are pretty poor in my opinion with all four Luchadora's paying 6x bet for a 5-of-a-kind win, the Placard Girl and Referee 3x and four card values at 2x or 1.5x your 50-coin minimum bet. If you're surprised at paying 50 coins it's because the in-play enhancements are doubled as opposed to those on the basic 25 coin bet, which we shall shortly discover.
The game logo is a Wild and can only appear on the centre three reels. Randomly it may expand to cover 2 adjacent tiles when appearing or add a 2x or 3x multiplier or both. The double-up bet of 50 coins results in these Wild multipliers being either 3x or 5x and any expanding signature moves applied will cover 4 adjacent tiles and turn them Wild as opposed to 2 on basic stake. Only one Wild will act in any given spin though.
A Championship Belt scatter appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger 10 free games. These can retrigger and if just landing 2 scatters you will be granted 1 extra spin. During the free spins the signature move Wild expansions will occur on all Wilds appearing, not just one as in the base game. I'd like to say that the Wilds appear more frequently in the bonus, but they didn't appear to. The game claims a top pay of 165,000.00 which at maximum 75.00 bet is 2,200x stake but at 6x for the best 5-of-a-kind and 25 lines with top 5x multiplier I can't see it happening unless it's accumulated in the bonus.
Lucha Legends slot is reasonably entertaining to play if you like frequent smallish wins and low average bonus game returns. It's eye-catching in the base game and the Wilds provide plenty of action but I must say the music grates pretty quickly and that along with the lack of any worthwhile wins really makes the slot a bit timesome. The RTP is 96.21% so now worries there but for me that is pretty much the only positive overall. It's a long while since Microgaming created any classics in the class of say Immortal Romance and Lucha Legends certainly doesn't cut the mustard int hat respect. I can say this slot is definitely not one which I couldn't wrestle myself away from...
