It’s time to journey to sunny Spain and unleash your inner matador in Elk Studios' high quality video pokie with a difference.
Admittedly, bullfighting is considered a morally questionable ‘sport’ dating back centuries and it continues to divide opinion. But in an unexpected twist, the roles are reversed in Wild Toro and instead it’s the bull who must vanquish the matador to fight for wins worth up to 225,000 coins. So what are you waiting for? Grab your cape and join us for an hair-raising slot experience on the Iberian Peninsula.
Visually, we have to say this is one of the best games produced in recent memory by lesser known Elk Studios. The slick cartoon-like pokie benefits from the use of incredibly sharp 3D graphics, and the game runs smoothly with every spin.
Cast your eyes to the reels to find the selection of playing symbols, comprising coins of bronze, silver and gold, plus fans, carved oranges and red roses, which act as the high paying symbol and which can pay out up to 1,000x your wager with any spin.
The game takes place against the backdrop of a quaint Spanish town, with local dialogue overheard in the background to help keep up the authenticity. Smoke bellows from houses adorned with bunting and clouds roll by in the distance to paint a pretty picture of this part of town.
Wild Toro stands out for its lack of paylines, which are replaced by 178 separate ways to win - far too numerous to each list here. But just know that your chances of a positive return are pretty decent across the larger than average 5x4 gridface, boosted considerably by some of the cool features thrown in by Elk Studio below.
Matador Respin Challenge
The action hots up whenever you catch at least 3 Matador symbols during a spin, transforming the Matador into a Sticky Wild and granting you a maximum of 4 Free Spins.
Also look out for the unique ‘Walking Wild’ symbol - The Toro symbol which, as its name suggests, moves along the reels in a left to right direction, while the Wild Toro, as a regular Wild, substitutes for all other symbols except the Toro and Matador.
A top payout worth 2,250x is possible for filling an entire line with Wilds in Wild Toro.
Toro Goes Wild Feature
An angry bull is a dangerous beast, but in Wild Toro, it can pay dividends for sending him into a frenzy. If the Matador makes an appearance during the Walking Wild feature, watch as the Toro goes wild and leaves a trail of extra Wilds in his wake, before the feature terminates. This is another fun addition to an action-packed, thrilling slot.
RTP / Volatility
A medium to high volatility rating calls for a healthy dose of patience in order to snaffle up the biggest prizes in Wild Toro, but moderate wins can be enjoyed in the base game with a reasonable amount of frequency. At 96.4%, the game sits in the mid-range for theoretical RTP (Return to Player).
Wild Toro on Mobile
Wild Toro operates seamlessly on pretty much any modern gaming platform, from iOS and Android, to Windows and Mac. Its clear and concise layout make it perfect for mobile gaming, so you can head to the streets of Spain for a fun-filled adventure wherever and whenever you please.
Elk Studio ought to be commended for this stylish release that incorporates a mix of innovative and fun features including Respins, Wilds and even Walking Wilds. And the industry professionals at EGR seem to share our opinion, awarding the game the ‘EGR Operator Awards Game of the Year’ title in 2017 - a testament to its owners' foresight and game development skills.
The software studio could be accused of treading a dangerous line with the controversial theme of this pokie, but they manage the issue by deliberately applying a humorous approach and flipping the roles of the two central characters.
Onto the gameplay, Wild Toro’s game’s any-way-pays mechanism is a welcome deviation from the standard deployment of paylines adopted by the majority of modern slot titles. The lack of free spins may be something of a concern to slot purists, but this is almost forgotten amid the trio of respin bonus features that offer up an abundance of rewards of their own.
Added to the chance to win up to 2,250x your stake and its superb animations, even the most morally upstanding slots players could be inclined to give this game a whirl.
