Taco Brothers Saving Christmas Slot Review

Taco Brothers Saving Christmas is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win game from ELK Studios – based on the original Taco Brothers game, it comes with a Christmas theme and is higher variance. It benefits from a Taco Brothers Respin feature where you get a 2nd chance to trigger the all-important Wild Escape Bonus feature – here the 3 brothers act as wilds and run across the reels. Look out for Captain Diaz who locks up the brothers as well as the Señorita who sets them free – the free spins only end once all brothers have escaped or have been captured.

Winter has come to sunny Mexico in the Taco Brothers Saving Christmas slot. This is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot from ELK Studios. Playable from 10p to £50 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, it’s very similar to the original Taco Brothers slot but with different graphics, sounds, animations and higher variance.

Taco Brothers has been given a Christmas makeover where snow falls gently over sunny Santa Maria (Mexico) which transforms the setting into a peaceful winter village. This Christmas game features brothers Paso, Pepe and Pico who are ready for the festivities and try to save as many tacos from the evil Captain Diaz.

Aesthetically, it has a Christmas theme and is played at night time to give it a winter feel – the symbols remain the same as you will see cacti, guitars, bottles of tequila, spades and mining lamps all with a festive spin. The 3 brothers (Paso, Pepe and Pico) also appear with Paso giving you 400 coins if you manage to get 5 on a payline. The gold bell, which has holly on it, is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except the bonus and re-spin symbols.

Look out for the Taco Brothers Wild symbol which appears only on reel 2 and 4 – when they both appear on the same spin, you will trigger the Taco Brothers Respin feature. This gives you a free respin where all reels that don’t hold a safe or Taco Brother symbol spin. In essence, it gives you another chance to get 3 safe symbols which will trigger the Wild Escape Bonus feature.

You can play the Wild Escape Bonus feature when the safe symbol appears simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5. A bomb then explodes which reveals the multiplier to be used for the feature – it will be 1x, 2x or 3x. You will then see the 3 brothers, Captain Diaz and the Señorita on a new reel set.

There’s a Running Wild feature where each of the brothers drops onto reel 5 acting like a wild symbol – they work their ways across the reels until Captain Diaz appears. When he does, he locks up the brother and stops him from moving. The Señorita, Captain Diaz’s daughter, releases the trapped brother. You will continue to get free spins until all 3 brothers have escaped or when all of them have been captures by Captain Diaz.

Now, Taco Brothers Saving Christmas may sound exactly like the original just with a Christmas theme – well, that’s true but you will win less in the base game and more into the Wild Escape Bonus feature. ELK Studios have made it more volatile too meaning it’s now a medium to high variance game rather than a medium variance one.

I loved the original and think this version is even better due to the higher variance factor. Graphically it looks fantastic and it has the potential to pay out up to 1,500 times your stake on each spin! I also recommend you take a look at ELK Studios’ Wild Toro which is highly volatile and offers payouts of up to 2,250 times your stake.
