Yggdrasil Gaming’s Lucha Maniacs
Yggdrasil is bringing Lucha Maniac to town and treating us to a wrestling-themed video slot which combines an engaging gameplay with unique feature combos. The game capable of paying as much as 12,000 coins in a single spin becomes globally available as of 24th April.
Lucha Maniacs is jam-packed full of fun and we are sure this extravaganza of action-oriented features will soon get it a cult following,
says Jonas Strandman, Yggdrasil Gaming’s Head of Slots. Taking the first look at their new release, we’ve no choice but to agree.
Lucha Maniacs is a 5-reel slot with 20 paylines and some mean-looking loco luchadores wrestlers. On top of the regular Wild icon, players get to benefit from 3 additional ones active during the bonus round. Sticky Wild claims the middle position on reels 2, 3 and 4, Random Wild randomly replaces regular symbols, and Wrestler Wild takes over the position of one of high-value icons.
Landing 3 or more Bonus symbols activates a Free Spin mode with 3 pick & click bonus features. Players are awarded 7, 15 or 30 free games with a little extra of their choice. The offer includes 1 to 2 random Wilds added on each spin, +2 or +4 additional spins, Sticky Wild on reel 2, 3 or 4, two high symbols merging into one to combine their respective features and payouts, and a high symbol becoming Wild, appearing stacked, or getting a x3 multiplier. Investing 5 additional coins per spin activates Golden bet which awards one extra bonus feature. Landing 2 or more Bonus icons while in Free Spin mode adds 1 to 4 spins with up to 4 features, with multiple re-triggers likely to create interesting and potentially highly lucrative feature combos. Should one come one Bonus symbol short, the Poster Bonus Game will offer a chance to claim instant wins or additional Scatters needed for launching Free Spins.
The game’s overall RTP is 96.2% when playing with Golden Bet, and 96.1% if playing without it. The main attraction is, obviously, retriggerable free games bonus round which can lead to gigantic feature combos and resulting high wins. Same as other Yggdrasil titles, Lucha Maniacs is built using HTML5 and offers equally enjoyable playing experience on a range of mobile devices. Strandman says:
We had a fantastic time showcasing Lucha Maniacs during one of Yggdrasil’s famous slot shot tournaments at ICE, and now is the time to launch the game for real.
