Wrestling-themed slots are perhaps not as common as other major slot games, but there is still a reasonably exciting selection of them out there for you to choose from. Often quirky and slightly comedic in nature, Luchador-themed wrestling slots tend to be the most popular.

This week, Microgaming decided to have a crack at the genre themselves, with the launch of their Lucha Legends slot. Debuting at all online casinos offering Microgaming slots, Lucha Legends offers a nutty Mexican wrestling theme, and a plethora of goodies to pick players up from the mat.

Between the Ropes of Microgaming’s Newest Slot

Going between the ropes and having a closer look at the new Microgaming slot, players will spot that there are 5 reels and 25 non-adjustable paylines to the new game. Wagers are flexible to a degree, with two different betting modes available.

Normal and Power-Up Modes can be selected. The latter costs double the stake, but it offers more frequently triggered bonus rounds and potential wild multipliers. Power Mode spins will set players back anything from 50p up to £75 a pop, while playing without the added luxuries will cost players a standard 25p minimum stake, up to £37.50 a spin at its costliest. The jackpot remains the same in both modes, at a non-progressive 2,200 coins.

Bone Crunching Bonuses

Wilds replace all but scatters, but there is nothing new about that. The Super Wild feature, though, is worth a gander. It is a randomly triggered bonus, and one which can see wild multipliers worth 2x or 3x your total winnings applied, or two extra wilds pop up on the reels. However, if you choose to play in Power-Up Mode, those multipliers rise to 3x and 5x, respectively; otherwise 4 extra wilds appear.

A free spin bonus feature also comes standard in this newly released game. Bagging three championship belt scatters on the first, third and fifth reels will offer a total of 10 games. Two more scatters acquired during the feature offer an extra spin, while three will retrigger the bonus. All wilds become Super Wilds during the feature.

Entering the Ring This Week

Unlike other new slots, which tend to receive exclusive launches, Lucha Legends officially makes its debut at all major Microgaming casinos this week. If tongue-in-cheek, slapstick luchador wrestling-themed slots are your forte, it may be worth a punt.
