Finally I’ve found a product in Betsoft portfolio that really possesses the ability to cheer me up and make me smile and I think this is a fine example how a funny, humorous slot should look like. Because we’re speaking here about a Betsoft slot we can be sure that we get first class graphics and visual elements but this time additionally I really like the great and pleasant atmosphere creating power what the game expresses.
This is an unsophisticated Mexican slot where Paco, the name giving character has got very great sense of humour and fortunately he tends to show it us. He’s an active participant of the screen and makes some very funny and cool moves, gestures which are priceless. No matter he’s sleeping, dancing, playing on guitar or singing he’s funny every time and of course the very appropriate and great Latin supplementary melodies in the back is also an important mood creating elements and increase the whole playing experience. The used symbols like peppers, tomatoes, onions, garlics are all fantastic looking, very cute icons and they also follow Paco’s example and they’re funny and very loveable little illustrations. The design and supplementary images are also great and we can see some very specific items as decoration elements like poncho, sombrero, guitar, chili peppers but I really miss cactuses from the screen. What Mexican slot is where the beautiful, colourful and fragrant cactus is not shown? What a shame! But seriously I believe this is the game which has got a very good sense to be very hilarious and comical and that’s why I really love the appearance of the game.
I could say again the little phrase ‘because we’re speaking here about a Betsoft slot’ and we all know the Achilles heel of their products were always the rewarding ability so this slot sadly doesn’t different from an ordinary Betsoft project and we can also find here some things where we definitely feel that much improvement would be required. First, the slot is working along with falling symbols which I’m not a big fan of it and it’s almost evident if a game use this method and a winning combination is completed the participant symbols disappear giving out their places for emblems above them creating space for newcomers at the top spots of reels and chance for new layout and new winning combinations. Most of the occasions this feature is not what I could love because the new arrangement very rarely brings such wins what I could be satisfied and basically that’s the case with this slot too even if an extra feature is attached to it. The first win pays as the paytable shows but if the new layout result another winning combination that wins is multiplied by x 2, the next one by x 3 and so on up to x 10. It sounds real good but I have never witnesses more than 4 consecutive wins so getting a new screen with x1 0 win multiplier remains just a dream for me.
The best paying symbol here is Donkey Pinata and if 5 of them become visible on an active payline we won only 500 times of line win which needless to say how poor award is. This symbol is also working for the game as Wild but it isn’t able to multiply wins and also not a frequently appearing symbol on the screen. Instead of free spins the slot offers a Bonus game which is triggered by 3 or more Hut symbols during base game. It takes us to a secondary screen which has one of the most beautiful images I’ve ever seen. This is really perfect picture. So there we can play a Hi/Lo type card game predicting the next card whether will be higher or lower than the previously shown one and we have 3 attempts when we’re allowed to predict wrongly (or 10 successful picks) then the bonus ends. I like this bonus and its type but the profits we can gain here is the same awful prize than what the normal game mode offers.
Unfortunately, I don’t get a complex and overall good product in Paco and the Popping Peppers slot again so I have to wait longer for the breakthrough in Betsoft platform. Every time when I play with an amazing looking Betsoft game I’m always wondering why they couldn’t put in such effort to making a reliable working and finally a good paying product than what they do with the appearances of their slots. It’s really inexplicable for me. Back to this game, so overall I really admire the great attitude what the game reflects and the nice, quality graphics but that’s all what I can appreciate here because the game segment is simple not good. So my disappointment only applies to this section but I’m afraid this is enough for me to not consider this game as an overall satisfactory one and strictly from gambling standpoint my opinion about it is much worse.
