Mexican wrestling, Day of the Dead, and tequila! Sign me up! Wild Luchador is a new game from Quickspin, the gaming studio in Sweden, known for its high-quality casino games. Quickspin began as a small startup in 2011 with three friends in Stockholm and was acquired by gaming giant Playtech in 2016.
Wild Luchador is full of the enjoyable gameplay and terrific game mechanics that we've come to expect from this studio, with great graphics and animations along with a fun soundtrack.
If you weren't already in the know, a Luchador is a professional wrestler in Lucha Libra, otherwise known as Mexican Pro wrestling. Lucha Libra is a wild and dangerous sport, and Quickspin has carried this idea through to the gameplay in Wild Luchador. These risk-taking, death-defying luchadors are the colourful characters in masks that take centre stage - or in this case, centre ring - in Wild Luchador.

The mariachi band music is fantastic and genuinely amps up the excitement during play. The animations are hilarious and entertaining; who doesn't want to see a Luchador shot out of a cannon? Wild Luchador's background is the cheering crowd around the ring, gathered here to watch their favourite luchador win and their favourite villain lose.
Wild Luchador is playable across all platforms with no loss of quality and is the fairly standard 5×3 reel slot with 243 ways to win. The maximum win is 40,557x the stake, so put your gambling spandex on for this one!
The RTP for slot is average at 96%, but the volatility is high, so be ready to win - and lose - big, this is pro wrestling, after all, and it's all about the drama and excitement. The Wild Luchador betting range is satisfying for almost any type of player, with the minimum bet set at 0.30 and the maximum set at 90.00.
The low-pay symbols in slot are the usual nine through ace royals. The higher paying symbols are the expected Mexican-theme symbols of Tequila, Spanish guitars, cacti, chilli peppers, candles, and sugar skulls or Calavera - a la Day of the Dead.
- The Luchador Wilds are five different luchadors, one for each reel, that can be triggered randomly and shot from a cannon. The luchador expands to fill the reel, and it's possible to land five luchadors at once.
- The Golden Champion Belt is the regular wild and can substitute for any symbol except the scatters, which is pretty standard.
- Death Clock Scatters trigger the Dead Slam Free Spins feature, which awards seven free spins, and multipliers depending on how many scatters land.
- If you're the impatient type, you can go ahead and purchase the Dead Slam Free Spins feature in some locations with the buy feature in Wild Luchador. This feature allows you to spend 70x the stake to go right into the Dead Slam Free Spins feature. Wilds are more likely to show up during this bonus feature, so it's worth a shot if you have the coin and are feeling lucky.
If you're looking for excitement, fun, and are ready to lose your shirt or win big, then Wild Luchador is the game for you. The high volatility, great animations, and music that actually slaps all make Wild Luchador worth your time.
