1) Corrida de Toros:
The theme for this slot is found with the cap, matador and bull symbols.
cape is a multiplying wild symbol subbing for any other symbol in a
winning combo while the matador or bull offers the Match and Multiply
feature. When you touch the symbol and two matching multipliers appear,
the win is multiplier by 2, 3 or 5. Three or more rose symbols gets
you 10 free games where you select either the matador or bull. If your
selection is displayed most often, all wins are multiplied by 5X, 10X,
50X or 100X.
Wagering on this 25 line video slot can be as high as 20 credits/line
equaling a max bet of 500 coins. The penny version usually resets at
$200 for the Major prize and $20
for the Minor prize.

Ladders while the player chooses their symbol.

witches will start the bonus round when appearing on the first, third
and fifth reels. This bonus round offers 10 free games and at this

total and the chance for additional free
spins within the bonus round.
this slot not only brings three witches but offers three opportunities

frequency even without playing maximum coin.
So, sit a spell and enjoy these benefits.

3) Golden Chariots:
unique feature and added excitement of this game is the Hot Hot Super
Jackpot Respin. This feature is triggered, first by a side bet, and
then when 3 or more scatter pay bonus symbols appear, you receive 15
free games. Now with the Hot Hot Respin in play, any time two of the
bonus symbols land, the initial jackpots are paid and the bonus reels
are frozen while the remaining reels respin once for another try at

frequency rate resulting in a hit nearly every second spin.

during the Hot Hot Super Jackpot Respin sequence.
4) Pharaoh’s Gold:
‘golden’ slot from IGT, this game’s three right hand symbols in the
middle row are always active. Each five coins bet activates one
vertical row, therefore a 25 max bet allows the players a possible win
Of course, a max bet increases the numbers of ways you can
win, however a quarter/spin will keep you in the game. Bonus features
include free spins and wild symbols=mounting credits.
more Pharaoh’s Gold symbols will set you up with free spins and
possible re-spins. This penny slot
will accept a $12.50 max bet/pull
for a big strike of $1250. while scatter pays result in a 100X payoff.
I suggest you start slow and increase your wager heading towards ‘the
big gold strike’.
