After smashing its way into the online casino world back in 2016, ELK Studios’ marauding bull is back for more mayhem in the Wild Toro 2 slot. Played using a 5 reel, 5 row machine, look out for walking wilds, expanding reels which can take the game engine 8 rows high and the Matador Knockout feature which can deliver multiplier walking wilds. You can also vary your stake and play in 5 different game modes. These offer a variety of extras, depending on the price. The first Wild Toro proved to be a surprise hit. Find out if the sequel is too in our detailed Wild Toro 2 review.
Wild Toro Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits
Reels/Paylines: 5 reels + up to 502 paylines
Stakes Range: 20p to £100 per spin
Max Win: 10,000 x stake per spin
The base game action in the Wild Toro 2 slot starts on a 5 reel, 5 row machine that offers 259 paylines. Land 3, 4 or 5 matching symbol or wilds from left to right across a payline, starting from reel 1 to create a winning combination.
Bet levels range from between 20p and £100 per spin. Click on the coins icon in the bottom left-hand corner which brings up all 12 available stakes. In some countries, there’s an Auto Spin function where allows 10, 25, 50 or 100 auto spins.
The Wild Toro 2 RTP is 95% which is a little on the low side but the norm for ELK Studios slots these days. The original Wild Toro has an RTP of 96.4% in case you’re wondering. The hit frequency rate is 22.1% so you can expect to land a winning combination every 4 to 5 spins on average. This can fluctuate over the short term.
This isn’t the most volatile slot from the ELK Studios stable. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d put the Wild Toro 2 variance at around a 7. It’s fiery enough but not too extreme. However, the maximum win is an impressive 10,000 x your total stake from a single spin.
Theme – Audio & Design Features – bull battles Matador in this wild Spanish fiesta
High Value Symbol: Pink Rose
Compatibility: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop
Just like the original Wild Toro release, the Wild Toro 2 slot is a very stylish game as far as design is concerned. With a bullfighting theme, you head a Spanish town once again.
There’s a comic book quality to the visuals here which are very nicely realized. The soundtrack is much better than the original game too and is quite immersive.
With a Flamenco flavour, you will hear a female Flamenco singer as well as the Spanish guitar and castanets. There’s also a male voice saying ‘Ave Maria’. As usual for a release from ELK Studios, there’s very little cause to grumble when it comes to sound and visuals.
On the reels are a collection of lower value A, K, Q and J royals as well as silver and gold coins. The higher value symbols are represented by oranges and pink roses. The rose is the best paying symbol giving you 1.5, 2.5 or 5 x your total stake for 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
Central to much of the best action are the silver and gold Matadors and the Bull, all of which are wild. You will also see a Wild Toro 2 wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols bar the Matador and Toro. Here’s a list of all symbols you’ll see on the reels with payouts and info:
|Jack||3, 4 or 5 = 0.2, 0.4 or 0.6 x stake|
|Queen||3, 4 or 5 = 0.2, 0.4 or 0.6 x stake|
|King||3, 4 or 5 = 0.2, 0.4 or 0.6 x stake|

Wild Toro 2 Mobile
ELK Studios one of the top developers when it comes to mobile slots and Wild Toro 2 is another release that’s been aimed at mobile, tablet and desktop devices. The bold imagery stands out very nicely if you’re using a handheld device. Even when the reels are fully expanded, everything is nice and sharp.
Wild Toro 2 Bonus Features
This trip to the virtual bull ring comes with a total of 5 bonus features. The Wild Toro 2 slot benefits from walking wilds, expanding reels and the Matador Knockout feature. Activate X-iter Mode and you can pay to bring other extras into play.
Toro Goes Berzerk feature
If Toro appears on the reels at the same time as Matador symbols, the Toro Goes Berzerk feature is triggered. The Toro charges and knocks all Matadors off the reels, leaving a trail of wilds in his wake.
Matador Respins feature
The silver and gold matadors as well as the Toro symbol are walking wilds. When they land and move across the reels, they trigger the Matador Respins feature. The gold matador symbols also come with multipliers attached. The values of the multipliers increase with each step/respin that they take.
Matador Knockout feature
If the Toro knocks off Gold Matadors, the Toro absorbs their multipliers and transforms into a Walking Multiplier Wild. Known as the Matador Knockout feature, Toro’s multiplier value increases as he walks leftwards and awards respins in the process.
Expanding Reels feature
Whenever a Matador symbol is on display, the Expanding Reels feature is triggered. Another row is added to the game grid which also increases the number of paylines.
|5 rows||259 paylines|
|6 rows||340 paylines|
|7 rows||421 paylines|
|8 rows||502 paylines|
The game grid can expand so there are 8 rows in play with 502 paylines. Combine this with multipliers and this is where the big potential 10,000 x stake max wins will come from.
The X-iter feature allows you to play in 5 specific game modes. Not available in the UK, each one comes with a special feature. What you get depends on how much you’re prepared to pay:
|X-iter 1||5 x stake||Play 1 spin with a guaranteed win|
|X-iter 2||25 x stake||Play 1 spin with a Walking Wild added|
|X-iter 3||100 x stake||Guaranteed to trigger the Toro Goes Berzerk feature|
|X-iter 4||250 x stake||Play 3 spins with a Walking Wild added|
|X-iter 5||500 x stake||Play 3 spins with sticky wilds and persistent super multipliers|
Wild Toro 2 Review Summary – more explosive wild action from ELK’s anarchic bull
Walking wilds and respins were central to much of the best action in the original Wild Toro and ELK Studios have kept to a similar formula with the Wild Toro 2 slot.
The expanding reels and multipliers add extra layers to the original gameplay. With up to 502 connecting paylines, your win potential is much higher. To win big though, you need to trigger the Matador Knockout feature where the Toro absorbs Gold Matador multipliers which increases with each respin.
The original game offered 2,250 x stake max wins whereby it’s 10,000 x stake in Wild Toro 2. That’s quite a difference. On the other hand, the RTP here is 95% whereby it is 96.4% in the original.
When you do win big, you will hear some crazy music and a male voice shouting ‘Mega Victoria’ (mega win). The soundtrack is off the big pluses in my opinion and adds to the anarchic feel. Stylish and absorbing, ELK Studios have put great emphasis on design and the soundtrack, and it really shows.
If you enjoyed the original outing for ELK Studios’ anarchic bull, expect more of the same in Wild Toro 2. To sum up, it’s basically Wild Toro on steroids bar the lower RTP rate.
If it’s anarchy you’re after, Nolimit City’s Punk Rocker would be my suggestion. It uses an xWays mechanic and comes with 15,072 x stake max wins.
- 10,000 x stake wins vs 2,250 x stake in original
- Bonus features combine for anarchic experience
- Amazing soundtrack
- No free spins
