Luchadors fill an important role in the pop culture of Mexico, as these professional wrestlers put everything on the line with their acrobatic flips and moves. Luchadors have been notorious for their masks and backstories, and Thunderkick wants to bring you into their world with the Luchadora slot. The game takes place in a wrestling hall, and you will compete in the squared circle for a chance to become champion and win cash in the process.
Luchadora is a 5 reel, 30 payline video slot that sees you looking from an eagle view at a wrestling ring and hall, which has posters, tortillas, and other trash on the floor. The slot's symbols are made up of different wrestling posters and peppers and are as follows: green pepper, yellow pepper, orange pepper, red pepper, El Pantera wrestler, El Serpiente wrestler, El Rayo, and El Toro. There are also extra wrestlers, which pop up with wild symbols.
The features in the game include the above-mentioned wilds, scatters (which is a wrestling belt), transforming symbols, four corner transforming wilds, and free spins. These features, when combined with the 30 paylines give Luchadora a posted return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.2%, which is about average from what you see from online slots these days.
The game isn't the most impressive graphically, but the features more than make up for it. The game always seems to have something popping up when you spin the reels, with things transforming and being set off for a win.
I will say that this game does look a bit better on your desktop than it does on smartphones, but the difference isn't really all that striking. On the smaller screen I simply noticed that the symbols were a bit harder for my old eyes to peep, but gameplay functionality is completely on par with the desktop version.
Luchadora is the type of game that will be appealing if you're into the subject matter. The game is one that's not in my wheelhouse in terms of trying to relate to the theme, but I am happy with the feature set. If you're someone who enjoys anything Mexican or are a fan of professional wrestling, then odds are that you're going to enjoy Luchadora. This is certainly one that stands up as being in the realm of higher end Thunderkick slot releases recently.
