Toro Rockets is a Lightning Box video slot dedicated to the Dia de Los Muertos – The Day of the Dead
In Mexico, every year on this holiday, the dead are honoured, and this is not so much accompanied by sadness but rather by festivities, music, drinks and food.
There are already many slots based on the Dia de Los Muerto.
Lightning Box, the game provider better known for its land-based slots than its online casino offerings, is also attempting to honour the dead.
Toro Rockets features all the familiar ingredients: festive Mariachi music and skeletons coming to life, and fireworks.
Although the slots from Lightning Box are always graphically somewhat coarse, the whole experience is quite attractively shaped and works well. In this case, we are oke that the artwork seems from 2010.
But is Toro Rockets also fun to play?
For sure, it is. It’s a typical Lightning Box video slot. Not very attractive or very unique, but they still have a certain charm.
Toro Rockets gameplay and features
The Toro Rockets online game is a win all-ways slot, with 243 ways to win.
The playing field consists of 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols, and the betting range is set between 20 cents and $€ 50 per spin.
Although we could not find any official maximum profits, we estimate that payouts of between 1,000 x and 2,000 x bets should certainly be possible.
We estimate the volatility to be between medium and high variance.
Symbols and payouts
The golden bull is wild and replaces all other symbols except the scatters.
The highest paying symbol is a lady who is as beautiful as she is dead. She awards you 40 x the bet for every 5-of-a-kind.
The mariachi band, the Flamenco guitar player, the lizards, and the candles all yield between 4 x and 15 x the bet with 5 of the same.
As is so often the case, the card symbols are worth the least. Are you able to spin five similar 9’s, 10’s, J’s, Q’s, K’s or Aces? Then your bank account is credited with between 2 x and 3 x the bet for every winning combination.
Free spins with up to x25 multipliers
To win the free spins bonus, you need to spin three or more scatters (the bottle rockets). Sometimes you can also hit a random free spins bonus, a nice freebie thrown in your lap out of the blue. These are always the best.
The start is always the same: 7 free spins and an x2 multiplier on all winning combinations that include a wild.
But it can all get a lot more lucrative. You can earn extra free spins and higher multipliers by collecting bottle rockets (the scatters).
The more of those rockets you collect, the more profitable the bonus round gets:
- 3 or more rockets: a wild multiplier of x 5 and +7 free spins.
- 9 or more rockets: a wild multiplier of x 10 and +7 free spins
- 15 or more rockets: a wild multiplier of x 25 and + 7 free spins
The maximum number of free spins is 28.
Of course, the higher the multiplier, the greater the potential. Did you land the x25 multiplier and spin 5 of the ladies? Then you grab 40 x 25 = 1,000 x the total bet.
Our verdict on Wild Toro
The Wild Toro video slot is a very entertaining Lightning Box release, with an exciting bonus feature and some lucrative surprises.
The visuals look cheerful and sound festive, precisely what you would expect from a fun Dia de Los Muertos slot.
A minor downside, the payout rate of 95,77% is rather low, especially when compared to CasinoHipster’s top 10 best-paying slots.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
