La Cucaracha is not only a famous Mexican folk song and the word for a cockroach in Spanish but it is also a well known and loved bonus slots game that offers hours of entertainment and excitement as you watch the five reels spin filled with colorful symbols. There are twenty potential winning pay lines in this game and you can place bets on one or more of the pay lines for any of the spins. The coin size ranges from $0.01 up to $15 giving you a wide range of betting opportunities. Amongst the symbols you will find letters and numbers that represent the high scoring cards, A for Ace, K for King, Q for Queen, J for Jack, a 10 and a 9. In addition there are some colorful Mexican themed symbols which include the tequila worm, maracas, a taco, a cactus and a red hot chilli together with the La Cucaracha man himself.
The La Cucaracha man is the scatter symbol and when two or more of these land on your screen you are awarded multiplying wins. Five of the La Cucaracha symbols awards you 100x the coin bet that you have placed for that spin. Three or more of the La Cucaracha symbols awards you 10 free spins. During the free spins all of your winnings are tripled. You can also retrigger more free spins during the free spins offering you endless fun and winning potential. The chilli is the wild symbol and can take the place of other symbols to help make up a winning line. The only symbol that it cannot take the place of is of course the scatter La Cucaracha. The chilli wild only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and when it appears together on reels 2, 3 and 4 you are taken to a new screen to play the bonus fairground game.
The bonus fairground game takes place on a separate screen and here you are presented with a Chili-Ow meter. Your task is to choose three or the chilli stands and see what how much you can score i.e. how high the chilli ow meter will rise. Depending on your score you are awarded different prizes. At the end of the game you are taken back to the main screen to continue playing the base game. If you land the bonus game during the free spins feature and you reach more than 12 with the Chili-Ow meter then you are awarded a further 10 free spins with a triple multiplier. This slots game is colorful and lively and being accompanied by great music makes a very entertaining and exciting game to play.
