Theme of The Game
Lucha Maniacs will feature a type of theme that has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially among developers. Mexican wrestling that involve luchadores (lucha libre wrestlers) are obviously more popular in Mexico, but they’ve gained popularity in the United States as well, and thanks to slot machines they’re getting exposure in the online gaming community as well.
This Yggdrasil Gaming mobile slot has awesome graphics, with a high-end cartoon style used for its symbols that shows a lot of attention to detail. You have about four different luchadores as high-paying symbols, along with feature triggers that show wilds or bonus fighting rings. At the end, you also get four card suits, but I didn’t find them too annoying, particularly since they’re designed in a way to make them look cute. The fighting ring and the spectators are shown in the background, making it look like it’s something that’s cobbled together, not a high-end event.
For someone that wants to see the best work that the gaming industry has to offer, the mobile slots from Yggdrasil Gaming should always be present on their list. The production value is hard to equal, and the graphics are telling only half of the story. Features tend to be just as impressive in the games that are coming from this developer. A couple of quick examples of such impressive mobile slots from Yggdrasil would be slots like Easter Island, Vikings Go to Hell or Valley Of The Gods.
How To Play It
Though you are always playing with 20 win lines, the bets that you can use will be as low as $0.08, in which case individual coin values start from $0.004. At the other end, a line bet/coin value can be worth $5, so the total bet with 20 lines would reach $100. Activating the Golden Bet option will add another 5 coins to the total, and the maximum bet reaches $125 at that point.
Golden Bet is an option that you pay extra for, and which costs 5 additional coins each spin. You get from it one extra feature, when you trigger the free spins.

The Bonus Wrestling Ring is one of the symbols that you’re going to want to see often on the reels, as you need at least three in their random locations, to trigger free spins. The number of symbols will determine what you get, with 7, 15 or 30 free spins being available. There are 3 features offered for the free spins, or 4 if the Golden Bet was active.
Before the free spins begin, you make some picks and you receive extra features that will be used for their duration. You can get 1-2 random wilds each round, additional free spins, sticky wilds on one of the middle three reels, high symbols that merge into one, which can get turned into wilds, into stacked symbols or which can have 3x multipliers.
Free spins can be retriggered, with additional features active. You need 2 to 5 scatters, to get 1 to 4 additional free spins with 1 to 4 extra features.
A Poster Bonus Game is also available, via two bonus symbols. The rewards can deliver instant wins or 7 free spins with 3 extra features.
Besides the regular wild symbol, which you get in the base game and the free spins alike, there are also the various extra wilds, three of them in total, which you mostly get during the features.
In a game with a 96.2% RTP and with a lot of cool features, individual rewards don’t reach huge values. You get up to 200x here, or up to $1,000 for a single win.
Lucha Maniacs will have excellent graphics, unique features and overall it’s a slot that you can have plenty of fun with.
