Zorro by Aristocrat – Slot Machine Review
The famous Zorro is coming on our screens as a character in a slot machine, one that will be available at various Aristocrat powered casinos. The game is offering a cartoon-style design, several impressive features and it can pay quite well. It’s also one of several slots based on Zorro, from Aristocrat’s collection.
25 active lines at most will be hosted on the 5×3 reels that Zorro uses. Regular combinations will pay up to $25,000 and there are impressive features to be had if the Zorro Bonus is activated via an extra bet. You could get free spins, bonus games and big wild multipliers, of up to 15x. I’ve found plenty to be excited about with it, even going beyond the theme.
Your bets in Zorro will typically require at least 25 coins, for the same number of active lines. There is an extra bet that you can turn on, and I’d recommend you do so, which will require an additional 10 coins to be used. The extra wager is necessary in order to get access to the bonus features. The option to pick a coin value of $0.01 to $5 is available, and so with up to 35 coins in the bet you can reach a $175 maximum wager.
Zorro will be the one responsible for creating the best paying combination, with 5,000x the line bet awarded and meaning up to $25,000 cash for the player. When you take into account the impressive multipliers that become possible thanks to those same wilds, for the free spins at least, you will see why the game is worth playing even going beyond the fun Zorro inspired theme.
The Return to Player is apparently set at 95.5%, but the number is not a guarantee. There is the possibility of this aspect being an option given to the casino, and some might pay less. It’s a good idea to check and see if a casino announces the RTP for the games it offers.
The game will not give you that many features, outside the ones you get once you use the extra bet. That extra wager is particularly important then, for you to get the full experience of this slot machine. The bigger rewards are also going to come from that part of the slot.
It’s the Zorro symbol that will pay the jackpot of 5,000 coins, and that’s the one that you’re going to use as the substitute whenever it is appropriate. The requirements are to have the wild Zorro appear on a line where there are enough matching symbols for the combo to form, from left to right.
Symbols that you are required to have appear at least three times, the Horse scatters will be used to deliver rewards that could reach a maximum value of 50x the bet.
This is an option for which you need to pay extra, the 10 additional coins being wagered when you click on the Zorro Bonus button, found in the bottom right corner. Once this extra wager is made, the reels will get overlay symbols, featuring the letters Z, O and R. These will appear on top of existing symbols, the ones used being the Royals from J to A.
Have the ZORRO word form with letters appearing on all five reels, to win the Zorro Bonus. There are several bonus features that you can obtain, and the one you get is selected by the game at random.
One of these random bonuses is going to give you a choice between four types of free spins. The higher the number of free games, the smaller the multiplier of the wild. You can get 5 spins where wild multipliers are at 5x, 10x or 15x, but you can also choose options with 10 (wilds at 3x, 5x, 8x), 15 (2x, 3x, 4x) or 20 free spins (2x wild multipliers).
Another feature obtained at random will give you a cash prize, which can reach 500 coins.
Third, you can win 3 free spins, with Z symbols added to the reels and being locked there for the entire duration.
For the fourth potential feature, you get 15 gold coins, out of which you need to pick until you locate two that match.
A fifth random feature gives you 5 rounds for free, and the choice of a door. The character revealed behind it will give you a prize if that symbol showed up in the game’s free spins.
While Zorro is not a game with a modern design, it’s going to feature cartoon-style graphics with all the main characters of the movie. You have Zorro, the girl, her father, Zorro’s black stallion, a red dress, a barrel and five Royal cards. Some might call the design dated, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not enjoyable. In Zorro’s case, the lack of modern style graphics isn’t as important.
Zorro doesn’t have the best graphics around, but they still look good and the features provide you with a lot of good reasons to try out this game.
