Wild Chapo Slot Review
Hope to detonate some fiery Mexican-themed action in the Wild Chapo slot, an explosive 5 reel, 15 payline game from Relax Gaming. This bandito adventure comes with plenty of extras. Look out for crates of TNT that can explode and in the process turn entire reels wild. Land 2 Bonus symbols and they turn into wilds and a re-spin is awarded. These keep on coming as long as a new wild symbol lands. The main feature is the Free Spins feature. Collect Bonus symbols here which return to the reels as wilds for the final spin. These can come with multipliers attached too. Find out more in our full Wild Chapo review.
Wild Chapo Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits
The Wild Chapo slot is played on a 5 reel, 3 row, 15 payline machine. Winners are formed in the standard manner for a payline slot by landing 3 or more matching symbols or wilds on a payline, beginning from reel 1.
Stake levels here start at 0,10€ but can get as high as € 100 per spin . Either use the + and – buttons next to the bet box below the reels or head to the settings. Click on the $ and pick your stake level. Payouts are shown in cash rather than coins which is our preferred choice.
The Wild Chapo RTP is 96.36% which is slightly better than average. Highly volatile, the bigger wins will come from the various bonus features. The maximum win here comes in at 10,000 x your total stake from a single spin.
Theme – Audio & Design Features – join a Mexican bandito
The design in the Wild Chapo slot is the Wild West with a Mexican twist. Think of the spaghetti westerns of the 1960s like The Good, The Bad and The Ugly film. The cartoon-style imagery here is bright, colorful and packed full of detail.
There’s a brassy, mariachi-inflected backing track playing while you spin which fits the theme nicely. The sound and visuals come together very well. Set against an arid desert backdrop and flanked by cactus plants, the reels are set within a rickety wooden shack.
On the reels you’ll find heart, diamond, club and spade symbols as well as a dog, a wise old owl and a rather angry-looking donkey. Chapo is the most rewarding symbol. This bandito pays 2, 10 or 25 x your total stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 across a payline.
There’s also a wild that can appear on all 5 reels and substitutes for everything apart from the Bonus symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 wilds on a payline and you’ll pocket an award of 5, 15 or 40 x your total stake. These can really come into their own during the bonus features.
The classy design and wild extras work nicely when you’re playing the tablet or smartphone versions of Wild Chapo. Even if you’re restricted to a small-screen device, the visuals and gameplay make the Wild Chapo mobile slot very easy to play.
Wild Chapo Bonus Features
The theme here is a fiery one and that’s matched by the gameplay which offers some very decent bonus features. With 4 bonus features to play, wilds, re-spins and free spins are central to most of the best action in the Wild Chapo slot.
Colossal Wilds feature
As well as single symbols, wilds can appear in 2×2 colossal symbol blocks. Known as the Colossal Wilds feature, these are the equivalent of 4 standard wilds.
Expanding Wild feature
Land a crate of TNT in the base game and it explodes upwards and turns that symbol and all the symbols directly above wild. Called the Expanding Wild symbol, it will give you wild reels basically.
To trigger the Re-Spin feature, you’ll need to land 2 Bonus symbols on the same spin. Those Bonus symbols turn into sticky wilds and a re-spin follows. If a new wild symbol lands it too is held and another re-spin is awarded. The re-spins continue until no new wild symbol lands. A final payout consideration is then made with all the extra wilds in position.
Free Spins feature
Land 3, 4 or 5 Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you can look forward to 7, 9 or 11 free spins in the Free Spins feature. Land 3 Bonus symbols on the same free spin and you’ll get another 3 free spins added to your total, with no limits.
When a Bonus symbols lands during the free spins, it’s collected. On the final free spin, all the collected Bonus symbols return to the position they originally landed as wilds. If you landed more than 1 Bonus symbol in the same position during the free spins, the wild symbol will also come with a multiplier value attached. For example, say you landed 3 Bonus symbols on the middle position of reel 1 during the free spins. On the final free spin, the middle position on reel 1 would be made up of a wild with a 3x multiplier.
If you manage to land a winning combination on the final free spin that includes more than 1 wild multipliers, the multiplier values are combined. For example, a win that included 2x and 4x multiplier wilds would benefit from an 8x payout boost.
In some territories, there’s an option to buy your way into the free spins with the Buy feature. This will set you back 60 x your total stake. Importantly, the RTP rises to 97%. This option isn’t available in the UK though.
Wild Chapo Review Summary – features impress in this Mexican adventure
I enjoyed this Mexican bandito adventure. The colorful design impresses and there’s a very decent array of extras on offer here in the form of the re-spins and free spins with wild extras. The Wild Chapo slot certainly lives up to the wild part of its name as extra wilds feature heavily in the feature rounds.
This game can deliver some dynamite action too with maximum wins of some 10,000 x stake. The key to winning big is from the multiplier wilds which can arise on your final free spin.
