Features and Symbols
The highest paying symbol in La Cucaracha is the centipede and if five of these appear on a payline the player will win the jackpot of 5000 coins. The scatter symbol is the roach and pays out times two for 2 symbols, times five for three, times fifteen for four and one hundred times for 5 symbols. If players see three of the scatters they will win ten free spins which includes a multiplier. All prizes will be tripled with the multiplier. Any wins from the free spins are added to the payline.
The wild symbol is the chilli and will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter. Any wins with the wild symbol are doubled.
The bonus feature of La Cucaracha is triggered when the chilli appears at the same time on reel number two, three or four. The scene changes and a Chilli-Ow!-Meter appears. Players must choose three stands out of four and each stand chosen will raise the levels of the Chilli-Ow!-Meter between one to five levels. The final reading is multiplied by the total wager and gives the final win. Players can also play the bonus feature when playing free games. If the Chilli-Ow!-Meter reaches twelve or more during a free game players are given ten free games and all prizes are tripled.
La Cucaracha also offers a gamble feature where players need to guess the colour or suit of the cards. If players correctly guess the colour, either black or red they can double their prize and if they guess the suit, either spades, clubs, hearts or diamonds they can quadruple their prize. Players can chose to play the gamble bonus game if they have a win on a combination or they can choose to play the regular game. The gamble bonus game is only triggered if the player’s win does not exceed the gamble limit.
