“El Torero” is a slot equipped mainly with a special feature that happens during the round of 10 free spins, and precisely, this feature I talk about, it holds wild symbols in place from the moment they appear until the end of the round.
The previous one is certainly a very promising feature, and I have to admit that the times I managed to trigger a round of free spins, I always had enough wilds to form 5-of-a-kind lines for at least the last two free spins; and precisely, my best wins during this slot came from this feature, that by the way, they were of 25x and 67x my total bet, since I could only trigger this round on a couple of occasions.
During the base game, our chances of getting a decent payout are much more limited, as these basically boil down to the possibility of getting 3 or more reels with the woman's symbol stacked, and in fact, in order to get a winning of acceptable size, these lines must be at least of 4 of a kind since the paytable in this slot is particularly weak compared to other 10-line slots.
I really never had the feeling that my session today would end with a positive result, but fortunately, I had already raised my bet a couple of times when I finally triggered my second and final round of free spins, so that such winning of 67x was enough to recover losses and also to obtain a positive balance that I could keep until the moment I decided to close my session.
At this point, I do not think I can say that “El Torero” is the best or the worst slot in Merkur Gaming portfolio that I had ever played, I think I would put it in an average zone, and this is mainly because of its tight prices that do not seem allow the creation of high expectations.
