WWE Style Wrestling In Online Slots


The WWE kind of wrestling will never make it as an Olympic sport. But for pure entertainment it has a huge fan following on television throughout the world. This article takes a look at two online slot games based on this brand of wresting.

Andre the Giant online slot game is from the portfolio of NextGen Gaming. Andre is a legend in this style of wrestling. The reels are set inside a wrestling ring clearly indicating where the action will take place. The symbols on the reels are taken from the sport and include masked opponent, referee, championship belt, wrestling ring, mask, chair, boots, hot dog and tickets. Five opponent symbols on an active payline award the top line payout of 5,000 coins, indicating fairly high volatility. Andre the Giant is an expanding wild symbol that appears only on reels 2 and 4. The Andre the Giant logo is the scatter symbol that awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. The scatter symbol also triggers the Battle Bout Bonus. You are awarded ten free spins with some exciting features. Special symbols that depict Andre’s favourite wrestling moves are added to reel 5. These are collected for use in the second part of the bonus game. In this part you pick an opponent for Andre to wrestle. Andre has to use the collect moves to defeat the opponent. For every round that Andre wins you get bonus credits.

Realtime Gaming included a wrestling themed video slot titled El Luchador in its portfolio. El Luchador is Spanish for The Wrestler. The base for this slot game is a form of freestyle wrestling called Lucha Libre that is popular in Latin American countries. As expected, the reels are set in a wrestling ring with the loud cheering of spectators in the background. The high paying symbols are the Lucha Libre wrestlers. El Luchador online slot offers many gaming features. The Match Multiplier randomly determines a payout multiplier from 2x to 5x for any paid spin. The Fly High Wilds Feature may trigger at the end of any spin after the payouts are made. All scatter symbols on the reels are turned into wilds and further up to three wilds may be added on the reels. Payouts are made again in the same spin. In the Ring Pick Feature you select one of the ring symbols on the screen for bonus credits. The final bonus feature triggers 10 free spins in which all payouts are doubled.
