One peculiarity of this video slot is that its regular symbols are divided into two large groups, and each group has exactly the same payouts for all its elements; so the group consisting of 5 symbols with images of artists pays 10, 25 and 100 credits for lines of 3, 4 and 5 of a kind; and the group consisting of 5 symbols of musical instruments and drinks pays 5, 10 and 50 credits for lines of 3, 4 and 5 of a kind.
As you can see, prices per line are quite tight, however, ¡Fiesta Cubana! slot is equipped with a couple of special features that enclose a great winning potential capable of generating payouts above 500x your total bet.
The basic feature involves the wild symbol that rotates only on the central reel, but in addition to serving as a substitute for standard symbols, this wild gives a respin each time you can form a line of at least 3 of a kind with it and any of the highest paid symbols of the game and leave all matching symbols in place waiting for new identical or wild symbols to appear during such respin. Afterward, new respins are granted over and over again until no more matching symbols appear; always hoping to get a big win at the end of respins as this feature has 243 ways to win.
The other feature is the round of 8 free spins during which a wild symbol will always appear in the middle of reel 3, which increases our chances of getting a big win from the already described “Fiesta Cubana Re-Spins feature.”
As can be assumed, a slot of these characteristics is generally a highly volatile slot, so our payouts for forming normal lines are always low, and although we normally manage to activate the special features of the game many times, few times we manage to get this feature developed enough to get a big win, but if we do it, a big win can represent without a problem a winning between 140x and 500x times our total bet and even more.
For example, today I had three sessions playing ¡Fiesta Cubana! During the first one I could win a few dollars, the second I finished with losses, but in the third session I finally could take revenge thanks to a series of respins during the base game where 13 of the 15 symbols on the screen were wilds and the man with guitar symbols, which led me to win $218 with a total bet of only $0.50.
After the above experience, I think ¡Fiesta Cubana! is a fun game but incredibly volatile, so the best thing is that you are prepared for everything, that if it is your lucky day, this is a slot with the ability to make you win big; otherwise, it is best to apply your own criteria to find the right time to quit the game.
