Tres Amigos is a Novomatic-powered slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Based on 3 jolly Mexicans, it can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 40p to £50 a spin. It’s all about the Free Games feature where you begin with 10 free spins and a 2x multiplier but can get 1 of the 3 amigos to get more free spins, increase your multiplier up to 10x and cash prizes of 50 times your stake.

Tres Amigos has a traditional Mexican theme and has cartoon style graphics – symbols on the reels include playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10) as well as tacos with tabasco sauce, tequila shots with salt and lemon, cacti and donkeys. The latter is the most rewarding giving you 50 times your total stake for 5 across a payline.

The other symbol to look out for is the red chilli pepper which is the wild symbol and substitutes for al symbols except the scatter. That scatter is the sombrero and 3 of them landing on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously will trigger the Free Games feature.

This will reward you with 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Look out for the Mexicans appearing during the feature as you’ll get more free spins, cash prizes and increased multipliers:

  • Mexicans appearing on reel 1 will give you 2 additional free spins
  • Mexicans appearing on reel 3 will give you a cash prize of up to 50 times your stake
  • Mexicans appearing on reel 5 will increase the multiplier by 1 – up to 10x

There is no limit to how many free spins you can play with – just hope the Mexicans land on reel 1. Getting a cash bonus of up to 50 times your stake is good but the real value is in the multiplier increasing – especially if you get up to 10x.

I found it to be a medium to high variance offering with potential wins of up to 500 times your stake on each spin. If you like the Mexican theme, Thunderkick’s Luchadora and ELK Studios’ Taco Brothers Saving Christmas are highly recommended.
