The game is set under a tiled roof in the middle of the desert with a bright blue sky above the reels and red ground below the reels with cactuses and a path leading to a traditional building in the distance. The symbols include maracas, a musical cockroach, a tequila worm, a mean old red chili pepper, a taco and an angry cactus. The musical cockroach is the scatter symbol and pays out for two or more anywhere on the reels. It is the key to triggering the bonus feature game. The red chili pepper is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols, except the scatter symbol to complete a winning combination. When it is used to complete a winning combination, it doubles the win. They appear only on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Three or more singing cockroach scatter symbols landing anywhere on the reels will activate the free spins bonus round and award ten free spins. All wins during the free spins round will be tripled and any win that uses the chili pepper wild symbol will be multiplied by 6x. The free spins can be re-triggered.
When the red chili pepper wild symbol lands on reels 2, 3 and 4 it triggers the Chilli-Ow! Metre Bonus feature game. This game will take place in the fair ground where you will see four cauldrons filled with boiled chilli. Pick one for the cockroach to taste from and win a cash payout based on the strength of the chilli. You will have three choices. If you trigger the bonus game during the free spins round and the Chilli-Ow! Metre reaches twelve or more, the free spins will start again from the beginning.
There is also a gamble feature option available after any winning spin. Players who choose to give this feature a go will need to select the colour or suit of a concealed playing card in order to double or quadruple their winnings, respectively. However, it you guess wrong, you will lose your winnings.
La Cucaracha is a fun pokie game with an animated storyline and two lucrative bonus features for extra ways to win. Try it out at PokiesPedia and you could be a winner.
