La Cucaracha Free Spins
Not only the double-up game but also the free spins and the bonus game are the extra rounds in the La Cucaracha online slot by NextGen. Whenever three, four or five Scatters appear on the reels, the free spins start. You get 10 fee spins in this case, which are played automatically. The betting parameters during the free spins remain the same as they were during the latest spin.
All the winnings during the free spins are doubled. You can get 10 more free spins if three or more Scatters land again on the game screen. The bonus game in the La Cucaracha slot is launched by three pepper symbols. When this combination lands on the reels, you will see a window which displays the brief rules of the bonus round. Click Ok to proceed to the bonus game itself.
You will see four pots with a beetle behind each one. You need to pick three pots. The beetle will taste the food from each one. It does so to find out how spicy the food is. You will see the Chilli-Ow-Meter to the right of the screen which displays the level of spice. The spice level varies between 1 and 5 for each dish. The reward is the spicy level multiplied by the total bet.
Also, if the bonus round starts during the free spins, you can get free spins during the bonus round. You will get extra spins if the Chilli-Ow-Meter exceeds 12. You get 10 more spins in this case.
La Cucaracha Slot Symbols and Multipliers
You will come across 12 symbols in the La Cucaracha slot. Three of them have special features. For example, the pepper symbol has two special features at once. Firstly, it acts like Wild symbol and substitutes for the regular symbols in the winning combos. The Wild symbol lands only on three central reels. Whenever three Scatter symbols land, you hit the free spins. The Scatter symbol is the picture of a beetle with musical instruments. Collect at least three beetles to trigger free spins. Collecting at least two Scatters will earn you a payout.
To calculate the payout for a beetle combination, multiply the total bet by the corresponding multiplier. If two Scatters land on the game screen, you get the 2 multiplier, three - 5, four - 15 and five - 100. The multipliers of regular symbols are multiplied by the bet per line. Multipliers of the regular symbols:
- Nine or Ten - 5, 10 and 100
- Queen or Jack - 5, 10 and 150
- Aces and Kings - 10, 15 and 150
- Cactuses or a taco - 15, 25 and 200
Combinations of the above mentioned symbols are formed starting with three symbols. Other regular symbols form combos starting with two icons. These are:
- Maracas, which pay the 2, 15, 100 and 500 multipliers
- A tequilla worm - 2, 20, 200 and 5,000
Only the highest-paying combination on the payline earns a prize.
You have a chance to increase your winnings for regular or free spins in the double-up round. Click the Gamble button to enter the double-up game. You will see a window with several buttons and a face-down card. The buttons around the card are used to guess the card's colour or suit. If you have a right guess, you get your win increased two or four times. When you make a wrong guess, you lose your win for the latest spin. Click the Take win button to stop the double-up game. If you have five successful attempts in a row, the round ends automatically.
