Like a Spanish Benedict? You’ll Like the Mighty Toro Slot.
The Mighty Toro slot has charged into BitStarz like someone was dangling a red cape in front of it. And it seems Booming Games honored Benedict Cumberbatch by making him the matador.
Nah, I don’t know if Ben was the inspiration behind the main Mediterranean man, but there’s only one other in the world with an unconventionally blessed upper-crust face like his – and that’s a royal otter. Or Prince Harry.
I digress. Like its theme, this new game offers an adrenaline rush for the ages, set in exactly the arena you’d expect to be in if you were visiting Valencia. Plus, you can win up to €140,000 here.
Not an ELK Studios sequel
Anything “Toro” related has become synonymous with ELK Studios – at least for me. They are the O.G Toro kings with a successful series of Toro slots and follow-ups.
Their collection follows the adventures of a brilliantly animated Toro as he travels the world, ripping up big bull wins in games like Wild Toro slot, Wild Toro ll slot, and Book of Toro slot.
Wild Toro won the Game of The Year 2017 at the EGR Operator Awards – so why anyone would try and stand on their “Toro” turf is beyond me. You really can’t put this Booming Games slot in the same box…
So, I’ll just ignore the copycat theme and name and treat The Mighty Toro slot like it was my first day on earth.
The main game multipliers are wild
The Mighty Toro slot isn’t flush with features – but you know you don’t need those to win the big bucks, right? It’s all about timing and luck. Here’s what helps, though…
Like with most video slots, the Wild Symbol here substitutes for all paying symbols except the Scatter. And in this game, they have multipliers added to them ranging between 2x and 5x. I enjoy this feature, it’s certainly a bonus having multipliers in play on good spin rounds.
The free spins are wilder
The bonus round offered in this high volatility Spanish sensation slot is up to 15 Free Spins, which are packed with Walking Wild Multipliers.
You’ll trigger the bonus game if you land 3 Scatters of purchase the round using the Buy Bonus feature. Once triggered, the number of free spins you receive will be chosen at random in a spinning-wheel type feature.
Any Wild Multipliers that land during the bonus game will stay on the reels and change positions with every new spin.
Not my preferred Toro title
In the spirit of transparency, I rate this 95.6% RTP slot a fair 5/10 for innovation. And considering it’s up against some of my favorite slots from the same theme, it doesn’t charge me up like I think it intended to.
This doesn’t mean The Mighty Toro slot isn’t a good game. It is. And if it’s the wins you care about, then perhaps this is where you’ll find them.
