Wild Toro Slot Review

Wild Toro is the latest slot machine game to be released by ELK Studios. This slot is very fine when it comes to its graphics, and it is certainly a step up from what we would normally expect to find from this developer.

The Wild Toro slot is, of course, themed on bullfighting. The bull itself is very human-like, and there are comedic elements to this title. Released this month at all good casinos offering ELK Studios software, the Wild Toro slot should certainly provide a thrill to most players, even if it is a little bit on the basic side.

Developers

Wild Toro does have stunning graphics, and in that it is totally different to most things we’ve seen from this developer before. Graphics aren’t certainly everything, though.

Like most ELK Studios developed slots, the Wild Toro slot is very basic in terms of gameplay, and there isn’t a great deal of customisation in terms of its wagers and setup. Wild Toro certainly stands out then, and if you aren’t a big fan of ELK Studios’ slots at the moment, this title may have what it takes to make you change your mind.

How to play

Wild Toro doesn’t offer a great degree of flexibility in terms of wagers, as we’ve mentioned. This isn’t, however, a fault of the developers. It is solely because there are 178 paylines spread over the 5 reels of this slot.

Like other ELK Studios slots, there isn’t really a wagering menu on the screen. By clicking on the coin button, you can select one of several “betting strategies” in the slot, but they will still see you wagering fairly rigid bets of $0.20 per spin, up to $100.00 per spin. Players can expect to find a decent return for their bets, though.

Features

Wild symbols: There are two wild symbols in the Wild Toro slot. One of them is the Wild Toro logo. This wild symbol can substitute for all other symbols in the slot, barring toro, and the matador.

Wilds are also the best paying symbol in the slot. The second wild symbol is the toro icon, and this acts as a Walking Wild. This means that when it appears on the reels, it will gradually walk its way across the reels from left to right over several re-spins.

Scatter symbols: Scatters appear as matador symbols. When this icon appears on the reels, it will offer you a Matador Re-Spin Challenge bonus. This is where the toro wild symbols come into play, and begin to walk their way across the reels whilst the free re-spins are in session.

Toro Goes Wild bonus: At any point in the game, the Toro Goes Wild bonus can be triggered. When it is, the toro will attack any matador in sight. He can charge vertically and horizontally, leaving a huge selection of wilds in his dust until all of the matadors are removed from the reels. This is a very prosperous feature, and we would argue that it is the best one in the slot.

Maximum pay-outs

According to this slot’s paytable, it is possible to win a non-progressive jackpot, which is worth around 225,000 coins in total.

In order to win that prize, you are going to need to fill the reels with wilds, and that just might be possible if you have a particularly good run with the Toro Goes Wild bonus. However, for most of us, we’ll be winning considerably less than that simply by landing 5 wilds on a line.

Summary

Wild Toro is a walk in the park. There is nothing overly complex about the game, and everything is as you would expect it to be in an ELK Studios developed slot, save for the graphics.

The graphics are sharp, crisp, and really go a long way to boosting the theme of this slot. Personally, we’d have liked to have seen the wagering range become a little more flexible, namely by doing away with the silly betting strategies. We find that they hamper gameplay, but obviously some people prefer them. Why else would ELK Studios keep them going?

Wild Toro is not going to cause too many waves in the online casino world as a whole. As far as ELK Studios slots go, though, this is one of their better releases.
