In 2015, “iSoftBet” released a video slot inspired by this sport but mainly based on the comedy film “Nacho Libre” produced by Paramount Pictures and released in 2006; the slot was named the same as this funny movie, “Nacho Libre.”
Slot’s structure is 5 x 3 reels and it has been provided with 10 pay lines, and to improve its hit ratio, iSoftBet decided to pay not only for combinations made from left to right but also for those made from right to left as well.
This slot has a set of 10 regular symbols, but one of the innovations introduced by this supplier in this game it was that they decided that the 5 highest paid symbols had the size of an entire reel to show full body wrestlers, which in my opinion it slows down the flow of hits, but on the other hand, 3 of these 5 wrestlers symbols have been configured to pay for lines from 2 of a kind.
The another novelty is the inclusion of a jackpot of 5,000 credits that will be paid to the player if in the same turn all the 5 wrestlers appear each occupying his respective reel completely.
I had not played this video slot for so long, but today, as in previous occasions, I do not feel that this game has managed to captivate me, and I think the reason for this is that I cannot get used to the long losing streaks that sometimes show suspicious patterns such as continuous symbols stacked over and over again on the same reel that cut practically the possibility of forming lines; in my case, I estimate that for 60 turns I got at least 25 “K” symbols completely stacked on reel 2, and about 10 other spins that included at least two of these symbols on that same reel, and all this started to happen right after I won about 42x my total bet on a round of 15 free spins with extended wilds.
During those 60 spins and maybe several more spins, I did not hear the voice that names the wrestlers every time they appear on an entire reel, these symbols suddenly began to become scarce and I think I do not exaggerate when I say that during these turns my wins were almost $0.
Today, just like before, my session ends with losses again and it will surely be another time before I get back into the ring with these masked guys.
