Review: Taco Bros by Elk Studios – Explosive

Taco Bros Feature ImageThis week has been an absolute blast for us. It started with the amazing Vikings Go Wild slot by Yggdrasil, then it got better with PocketWin’s Knights of the Round Table and now, with the all new Taco Bros by Elk Studios, the week is perfect. In our entire lives playing and reviewing slots, there never has been a week where more than one game has received a five star rating from us.

The story behind Taco Bros slot takes place in a peaceful and beautiful village in Santa Maria, Mexico. Happy villagers live in peace with tacos for everyone – until one day, the evil Captain Diaz arrives and takes all the tacos and pesos from the innocent people. The only hope now lies with the three Taco Brothers. For TACOS and FREEDOM!

We have played many slots  that involve robbing banks or even pulling of heists, but none of those games have the same appeal as Taco Bros do. Set in Mexico in  1881, Taco Bros slots tells you a story of three heroic brothers while you play the game. Taco Bros comes with a five reel layout, accompanied by 243 paylines.

Taco Bros Gameplay

In terms of the economics in this game, the game pays from left to right, and the minimum wager is £0.20 per payline and £40 per spin. From a couple of  hours playing and reviewing this game, we realized that this game has been designed to deliver slightly more frequent payouts than other games.

On average, we would win something every 3 spins, albeit some of the winnings being really small. To be honest, that’s just amazing for players who don’t stick too long in one game. You can probably recover all your money spent, and even make some even if you stayed for a short while.

This is where both the game gets really interesting. In the story of Taco Brothers, Paso, Pepe and Pico will have to blow up the safe in the bank and empty the vault through a secret tunnel in the Wild Escape Bonus Game. Whilst at it, you will receive a helping hand from Captain Diaz’ charming daughter, the gorgeous Senorita.

Taco Bros Wild Feature

If we had to compare all the different features in the game, Taco Bro’s Bomb feature is definitely the most adrenaline inducing feature. When the feature is triggered, the whole reel disappears and three chests of treasures appear. Each chest will represent a multiplier of 1x, 2x and 3x respectively.

A chest will then explode randomly, and all your winnings in that round will multiplied by the respective multiplier. Considering that the feature rounds do payout a lot of money, even a simple 2x multiplier may escalate your winnings to a massive £100 or more.

In short, to help you collect your loot, you will receive loads of Free spins, re-spins, multipliers and running wilds, all in this action packed adventure. As the saying goes: For tacos and freedom!

Taco Bros Bomb Feature

The high definition graphics and the animations is Taco Bro’s forte. In animations alone, we think Elk Studios have done a fantastic job and have outdone themselves and almost every other game developer out there. Just look at it. If someone told us that Disney Pixar helped Elk Studios with the animations, we did probably believe it.

On top of all that, everything part of the user interface falls perfectly in place. There is not one symbol or button that feels like it does not belong there. It looks like the designers really thought of every single detail in the game. That is a trait that not many gaming developers still retain today. Many of them just make new games just for the sake or keeping up.

Taco Bros Pico

As a result, Taco Bros is an absolute pleasure to play, regardless on any device. Even on a small mobile phone screen, everything detail can be seen vividly, enhancing our whole experience of playing this game. We genuinely do hope that other developers will catch up to this level of attention to detail by Elk Studios.

Unique Features?

Taco Bros Big Win

If you had been playing slots for a while now, winning probably doesn’t excite you as it used to when you were still new. Winning in Taco Bros would probably feel a little bit different though.

Whenever we won something in this game, not only did we feel happy and excited, but we also felt satisfied. That is something no other game has made us feel in a long, long while. Whenever we won, or triggered a feature, it felt like we were the heroes who helped saved the innocent villagers. It felt as if we were the director and producer of this whole story. For us it is the story and the gameplay combined together that has made this game stand out from others.
