El Mariachi Slot Review

Image of El Mariachi Slot Game

Feeling nostalgic about some Desperado-style action? El Mariachi is here to feed that nostalgia by letting you in on an exciting and action-packed adventure.

The graphics and top-quality sound effects featured in this game make it a mind-blowing experience that is comparable in many ways to the blockbuster film. Nothing quite comes close to being in the tense atmosphere of the Wild West where literally anything could happen. It gets even tenser since there is a lot of loot on the line and you will have to make quick decisions for a chance of walking away with the prize.

A Familiar Scene

As mentioned earlier, El Mariachi is inspired by Desperado and so if you have watched the movie you will find very familiar symbols on the reels. However, this does not mean that the newbies will be left out. They too can enjoy the spinning the reels of this video slot without having to dig in for the backstory.

There is a total of nine symbols in El Mariachi. The hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades are the low-value symbols. The man with a gun, the man with a cigar, and the woman holding a rose are the high-value symbols while the guitar case with weapons acts as the wild symbol. This wild symbol can substitute for all other symbols in the game save for the bonus.

It is also worth noting that El Mariachi is a medium volatility slot game with 5 reels and 3 rows. There are 10 fixed paylines and the RTP is 95.50%. The coin value in El Mariachi can be adjusted from 0.01 and 0.5. Each spin then costs the coin value that has been set by the player multiplied by 10, that is, the number of paylines.

The Bonus Features

As expected, DragonGaming™ went on to add some amazing bonus features to make the game even more rewarding to the players. Free spins are perhaps the most notable bonus. If you happen to land three, four, or five bonus symbols, you will unlock 10, 15, and 20 free spins respectively.

With your free spins, there are even more opportunities to win in El Mariachi. That is, during these bonus games, collecting as many bonus symbols as possible will help you to progress further through the levels. For every four bonus symbols collected during a bonus game, a whiskey glass which represents a single level. Every whiskey glass that you manage to fill will trigger tons of additional perks including even more free spins, a Win Both Ways features, sticky wild reels as well as some high-value multipliers.

Players can get to a maximum of five levels and at the fifth level, some of the perks that are unlocked include two additional free spins as well as three sticky wild reels. These are very lucrative as they will allow you to create some mind-blowing combos that better your chances of landing pretty huge payouts.


El Mariachi is a beautiful game but that does not mean that every other thing has been overlooked. In fact, DragonGaming™ has gone out of its way to deliver on an unforgettable experience by adding lots of bonus features. If you are on the lookout for a game that checks all of the right boxes and has an amazing backstory, this could just be it.
