Review of Lucha Maniacs
Wrestle your way to the big bucks with Yggdrasils feature packed slot game Lucha Maniacs featuring those fearsome Lucha wrestlers which could no doubt curl you into a ball and take all your cash, but luckily for us they are just on the screen!
Yggdrasil’s Mexican wrestling themed slot game Lucha Maniacs is absolutely bursting with colours, action and most importantly, features.
We must admit, the graphics are not that enticing and vivid, however we understand that they created this slot game with a comic book sort of theme in mind, and it wasn’t created to have lifelike characters.
Lucha Maniacs is absolutely bursting with colours, action and most importantly, features
The features definitely make up for the lack of graphical density if you are usually a fan of the more 3D slot games anyway! This game reminds us of the Luchadora slot game by Play’n Go, however it seems as though Yggdrasil have definitely amped it up with their features and graphics!

How to play Lucha Maniacs online
Grab yourself a brightly coloured suit and a mask and you are officially ready to dive into this fantastic game. Did you know that the word Lucha libre literally means ‘freestyle wrestling’, and this form of wrestling was created in Mexico where it then became very popular later on in other countries however it is native to Mexico. The Lucha wrestlers are known for their vivid masks and colourful outfits, they spare no expense during these fights and neither should you!
Before getting into the ring make sure that you adjust your betting limits, the minimum amount you can bet in this slot is £0.08, and the maximum amount you can bet is £100, this is a pretty reasonable amount and we like the fact that Yggdrasil usually doesn’t push their max bets too far and creates slot games which have that medium scale. Lucha Maniacs features 20 lines, and 5 reels with some really amazing features including the games main attraction which is the retriggering free spins rounds, but we shall get into those in a jiffy!
Lucha Maniacs Online Slot
As in your usual 5 reel slots online, the Wild symbols substitute all symbols except for the Bonus symbol, and in Lucha Maniacs there are four different types of Wild symbols that you will come across, so let’s get you prepared:
- The Regular Wild symbol can appear in both the base game, and during Free Spins mode and it is a golden symbol with the words ‘Lucha maniacs Wild.
- The Random Wild symbol can appear during Free Spins mode, and this sneaky symbol has the ability to land on any reel position in the game. The Random Wild looks pretty similar with the golden background, but it just has a ‘W’ along with the word Wild on it.
- The Sticky Wild symbol is next, this symbol can be placed on reels 2-4 in the center position, and can only appear exclusively during Free Spins mode. The Sticky Wild has ring ropes tied around it with the word Wild in it so it definitely cannot be missed
- The Wrestler Wild can replace 1 type of wrestler symbol, and it can only appear during Free Spins mode. The Wrestler Wild looks like a regular Wild symbol however it features the face of whichever wrestler it will be taking the place of.
Free Spins Mode
The Lucha Maniacs Free Spins feature is by far our favourite, and a fantastic chance for you to get your hands on some casino free spins, so we decided to start with the best! If you manage to get three or more of the scattered Bonus symbols, you will activate the Free Spins mode along with some extra features!
- 3 Bonus symbols, you will be awarded 7 Free Spins with 3 features
- 4 Bonus Symbols award you with 15 Free Spins and 3 features
- 5 Bonus Symbols awards you with 30 Free Spins and 3 features
choose one of the hidden special features represented by a set of tickets
Before this feature begins you will get the chance to choose one of the hidden special features represented by a set of tickets which will be activated all throughout the free spins mode!
These Lucha Tickets will contain the following features:
- 2 extra free spins
- 4 extra free spins
- 1 Wild which will be randomly placed on your reels during each spin
- 2 Wilds randomly placed on the reels during each spin
- 1 Sticky Wild placed in the middle of the second, third, or fourth reel
- x3 Multiplier on 1 of the wrestlers, 1 of the wrestlers acting as a Wild symbol
- The red and pink wrestler merging together into one symbol becoming a special tag team, or the blue and green wrestler merging together and becoming a special tag team.
Don’t be confused by the tag-team feature, basically what happens is that when these symbols merge together, they will become one and the two symbols will turn into a tag team symbol. So if any of these two wrestlers land on a free spins feature, with a multiplier or Wilds and such, the tag team symbol will also receive this feature and the payouts will be merged!
Gold is goals in this case, and in this feature you will have the chance to trigger Free Spins mode. The Golden Bet feature has the ability to be activated and deactivated during your spins, but to use it will cost an additional 5 coins per spin. It might be worth giving it a go though since you will receive an additional feature when entering free spins mode!
Poster Bonus Game
The Poster Bonus Game will be triggered when you land on 2 of the Bonus symbols during the base game. This is a special game allowing you to win some pretty exciting prizes such as: A Free Spin trigger with 7 Free Spins and 3 features (or 4 if you have the Golden Bet already activated). Or you could win 20-80 coins to play with!
Even though this feature does not include a lot of objectives and prizes, we still think that Yggdrasil have done an absolutely incredible job at making this slot game as exciting as possible with all of these special bonuses implemented!
