The Wild Toro 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 Wild Toro is 3.6%.
Wild Toro is made up of 5 reels, each one 4 symbols high. There are no paylines, instead the game works using way lines, of which there are 178 in total.
Wild – The “Wild Toro” symbol substitutes for all symbols other than the “Matador” and the “Toro”.
Bonus - The “Matador” symbol is needed in order to trigger the game’s bonus.
“Rose”- The most valuable symbol in the game is the “Rose” symbol. 3 “Rose” symbols in a winning combination will award you with 200 coins. 4 “Rose” symbols in a winning combination will award you with 500 coins and 5 “Rose” symbols in a winning combination will award you with 1000 coins.
Toro Goes Wild – To trigger the game’s main bonus feature you need to reveal 3 or more “Matador” symbols on a single spin. When this happens you will be awarded 3 re-spins and an additional re-spin every time you reveal another “Matador” symbol. “Matador” symbols can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. During the re-spins the “Toro” Walking Wild symbol becomes active and can only appear on reel 5. If you reveal one during the re-spins, they will be paused until the “Toro” symbol leaves the reels on the left-hand side. The “Toro” symbol will attack and replace all “Matador” symbols with wilds and will also leave a wild in every square that it has moved through to get to the “Matador”. The “Toro” symbol can move vertically and horizontally across the reels when chasing a “Matador” and will move one square to the left after each spin when there are no “Matador” symbols left to attack. The re-spins end once “Toro” leaves the reels.
“Wild Toro” is a brilliant looking game. It’s not just that the symbols and the background are detailed, they also sway as they spin, adding a sense of thundering momentum to mirror the movement of Toro himself. The bonus is really good fun and very immersive. However, it is the only bonus feature, which is a little disappointing .This, however, is not what lets “Wild Toro” down the most: The “Advanced Betting Strategies” that are built into this game are sold as an advantageous game feature, when these strategies offer the player no improvement over flat betting. 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, and it 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 this was not a feature in the game I would be scoring this much higher than I am.
