Havana Cubana Slot Review

Havana Cubana is a Cuban-themed slot from Bally Technologies. A popular land based game, it has 5 reels and 40 paylines and can be played from just 40p a spin. There’s a directional wild which appears on reels 2 and 4 and spins to turn all symbols in that direction into wilds. There’s also a Free Spins feature where you only get 5 free spins but there are directional wilds which remain sticky throughout the feature – this is a highly volatile affair!

Take a trip to beautiful Spanish Caribbean in Havana Cubana, a 5 reel, 40 payline slot from Bally Technologies. Celebrating all things about the island it comes with directional wilds and a free spins feature. Stakes start at 40p per spin going up to £400 per spin for the high rollers.

The reels in Havana Cubana come with a selection of imagery related to Cuba – symbols include mojito cocktails, bottles of rum, Havana cigars, boxes of cigars, maracas, dominoes and a beautiful woman who acts as the wild. The mojito and woman are the biggest payers offering 300 times your line bet if you find 5 of a kind. The high-value symbols are joined by playing card symbols from ace down to jack.

The first feature to look out for is the directional wild – the compass symbol appears on reels 2 and 4. When it hits, the needle will spin and the symbols in that direction will be turned into wilds. The reels will be evaluated again and a second payout will be made (if you hit a win of course).

It’s especially beneficial when the compass needle points directly to the left from reel 4. Needless to say when directional wilds hit on reels 2 and 4 the results can be hugely impressive.

Havana Cubana also comes with a Free Spins feature which is triggered by hitting 3 bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. The allocation of 5 free spins seems a little on the tight side but there are extra goodies on offer in the form of the directional wilds. These appear on reel 3.

Any symbol that is turned into a wild will remain in place for the duration of the feature and can provide a real boost to your payout. The free spins are played out on a new set of reels complete with a salsa style soundtrack.

The combination of free spins and directional wilds made Havana Cubana a big hit with brick and mortar casino players – the same combination makes the online version well worth a look too. If you like volatile action then Havana Cubana should appeal as the variance is on the high side.

The free spins may not be large in number but if the compass needles are pointing in the right direction the directional wilds can deliver some spectacular rewards.

If you like sticky wilds, Dead or Alive 2 by NetEnt is excellent as to is Punk Rocker from Nolimit City.
