When I am thinking about the various themes for video slots that I have encountered over the years, tacos is one of the rare topics I have never seen. That all changed with the Elk Studios Taco Brothers slot though, as the game transported me to Mexico where I went on to participate in a tale of vengeance over a man who wants to keep a city's residents from eating the shelled concoctions.
Taco Brothers is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot that transports you to the Mexican town of Santa Maria, where the evil Captain Diaz arrives and bans tacos from the populace. The brothers Pepe, Pico, and Paso are there to set things right though, and they are working to rid the town of the villain and give everybody in town a meat filled treat. Symbols in this game include lanterns and shovels, tequila, a cactus, a guitar, Pico, Pepe, Paso, a safe, a Senorita, and the evil Captain Diaz. The game also has a Taco Brothers wild symbol that can replace all normal symbols.
Features in the game include free spins, re-spins, shifting wilds, stacked symbols, and exploding reels. The game's main feature is set off when three safes are unveiled on the reels, transporting players underground where each one of the brothers are given the chance to cross the reels as a wild symbol. The feature can go for quite a while, and can deliver big wins should the brothers all make it to the end of the hole.
The Taco Brothers slot is impressive in the way it mixes the sharp presentation with the deep feature set found in the game. Players who enjoy silly themed games that pack a lot of punch would do well to give this game a few spins.
