The Taco Brothers Saving Christmas game can be found at casinos offering Elk Studios software. Elk Studios are a small but quickly growing casino software developer primarily focusing on the mobile market. At the present time they only offer slots games. Players should be aware that this software provider includes ‘betting strategies’ as an automated feature. These should be avoided. They offer no mathematical gain to the player and increase the risk of large losses in comparison to your bankroll. As a standard Elk Studios do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game paytable. As such we can say that the House Edge of Taco Brothers Saving Christmas is 3.8%.
Taco Brothers Saving Christmas is made up of 5 reels, each one 3 symbols high and there are 243 different win ways, playing from left to right.
Wild – The “Bell” symbol is Wild, substituting for all symbols other than the “Safe” and “Taco Wild Brothers Wild” symbols.
“Taco Wild Brothers Symbol” – This symbol is an additional Wild symbol, replacing all symbols other than “Bell” and “Safe” symbols. It also triggers a re-spin bonus and acts as a Scatter.
Free Spins Bonus – The “Safe” is the game’s Free Spins Bonus symbol.
Free Spins – To trigger the game’s free spin bonus you need to reveal 3 “Safe” symbols. When this happens a bomb will be thrown at the bottom of the screen that will randomly select a bet multiplier of either 1,2 or 3 for the duration of the free spins. As the free spins begin each brother drops onto the fifth reel, one at a time. They act as a Wild symbols, replacing all symbols other than the two new symbols that appear during free spins: “Senorita” and “Cpt Diaz”. The “Taco Brothers“ symbols move one space to the left with each spin. If “Cpt Diaz” appears on the row that a “Taco Brother is on, they will be imprisoned and stick in place, no longer contributing to the game. If all 3 brothers end up in jail the bonus will end. However, the “Senorita” symbol can also appear on the same row as a “Taco Brothers”. She will push a “Taco Brother” one space to the right, giving you more free spins or, if the “Taco Brother” is in prison, she will break him free. The free spins end when all the brothers leave the reels or all those remaining on the reels are in prison.
Taco Brothers Re-Spin – If you reveal 2 “Taco Brothers Wild” symbols you will trigger a re-spin, with the “Taco Brother Wild” symbols sticking in place for it.
The information I’ve given here is almost identical to the information I gave on the original “Taco Brothers” game because nothing has really changed except some Christmas sparkle has been added to the symbols and snow is falling in front of the reels. I still believe that the game looks amazing but it would have been more interesting if there had been some different features or new characters introduced. However, the game’s main failing is the “Advanced Betting Strategies”, which bring this game crashing down. The reality is that if you increase your bet, you’re more likely to lose money than you are to make any. This is poor practice, that drags everything positive about the game down. We would be highly critical of any website offering bogus betting strategies so a game developer doing this is even more problematic for us. If these “Advanced Betting Strategies” had not been used I’d recommend you take a look at this game if you wanted something fun with a Christmas feel to it.
