Luchadora Slot RTP and Review (Thunderkick)
MORE ABOUT LUCHADORA SLOT
In 2017 we saw some of Thunderkick’s best slot games so far, including games like Full Moon Romance, Not Enough Kittens and Pink Elephants. Luchadora Slot was another in that line, coming with the usual clever and creative gameplay and exciting visuals.
This slot is based on a form of Mexcian wrestling called Lucha Libre. They key feature of the game involves the four corner positions on the reels – the top and bottom of reels 1 and 5. These are like the corner seats in the ring, and when a wrestler symbol lands on one of these it turns all other instances wild.
There is also a Smackdown feature which can bring on 15x multipliers, and in the base game you can land 15 free spins with even more wilds. So, there’s plenty of potential to win big here. Just be aware that the variance is middle to high, so you can have to sit through some dry spells before landing a decent payout.
Like all Thunderkick slots, Luchadora can be played from 10p up to £100 per spin. It is available across all Thunderkick Slot Sites for free or real play on mobile, desktop and tablet. Try it now or read on for our full game review.

GAME SET-UP AND PAYTABLE
So, here we are and the reels are set up against a backdrop of a wall with wrestling posters on it. This is a 5×5 reel and row game that looks like a wrestling ring with ropes around the edges. It has 30 paylines and a 96.2% RTP.
The low value symbols are various Mexican chillis, from green through to red. Then the higher value symbols are wrestlers – Pantera (Blue), Serpiente (Green), Rayo (Orange), and Toro (Red). Toro is the highest paying at 25x for five on a payline.
Each of the wrestlers can turn wild at various points in the game, and when they do they pay out 25x for five on a payline each.
Look out as well for the Underdog symbol – which can transform in the highest paying Luchadora symbol in the bonus round. And the Lucha Smackdown symbol that will give you wilds and multipliers in abundance in both the base game and bonus games.
There are some nice, original features in this game and they work like this:
Ring Corners – When you land any one of the wrestler symbols on any one of the four corner positions during the base game, all other instances of that symbol will turn wild for that spin. This can get exciting when more than one wrestler lands in a corner square pushing more wilds and bigger wins.
The Wild symbols substitutes for all others except the Lucha Smackdown and Bonus symbols.
Free Spins Bonus Round – The Lucha Bonus symbol is the scatter in this game and it can trigger the free spins round if you land three or more on any of the reels. You get more free spins the more scatters you land – three gives you 7 free spins, four gives you 11 free spins and five gives you 15 free spins.
The really exciting part of this feature is that it works with Ring Corners too, and if you land a wrestler on a ring corner seat during free spins then all instances of that wrestler turn wild for the FULL duration of the bonus round! Plus, if you get all four wrestlers in corner seats, not only do they all become wilds throughout free spins, but the Underdog becomes the high paying La Luchadora symbol which has a top payout of 250x for 5 in a payline!
Lucha Smackdown Symbol – This is another important feature in the game. It only lands on reel five, but when it does it will enhance your wins with a multiplier of between two and 15x OR it will set off the Lucha Bonus round again with up to 15 free spins.
During the bonus round itself the Smackdown symbol can also work it’s magic with up to 15x stake multipliers or another 7 free spins. It also work like another wrestler, and if it turns up on the corner seat it will transform a random wrestler into wilds for the rest of the round!
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
Luchadora is a really entertaining slot from Thunderkick. It is pretty volatile so go easy with your stakes because it doesn’t always seem to feel like giving up its treasures. However, if you can unlock free spins and the gods are smiling on you – i.e. you turn all four wrestlers wild, the Underdog lands AND the Smackdown works its magic – then wins are massive!! Good luck.
