Ritchie Valens La Bamba Review
This rock-themed slot game by RTG does initially look as if it would be a whole lot of fun. Of course, it’s not the first time that rock music has been used for a slot game, but there’s every chance that this version can be packing something cool and different.
Overview of Ritchie Valens La Bamba
This game is already slightly different from the norm when you realize that it has 6 reels instead of the more common 5. The inspiration for the theme is clearly the 1950s, and that’s why there’s an era-inspired coffee shop as the background as well as symbols to remind us of the age of rock and roll. So, in this game, you need to be on the lookout for guitars, dancing shoes, Ritchie Valens himself, radios, and gold records. Also, the game pays all ways, so you have a huge number of opportunities to go ahead and win on some lines.
How to Play Ritchie Valens La Bamba
Playing this game involves setting up your bet, and that’s it. You don’t have to choose the number of paylines since that’s not an option with this being an all-ways pay game. Instead, after selecting your bet size, hit the spin button to see if luck is on your side.
Bonus Features for Ritchie Valens La Bamba
Ritchie Valens himself is the wild symbol in this game, and he will swap himself into the game for any symbols aside from the scatter. Also, if he manages to create a winning line, then he’s going to double the prize which is always a welcome bonus.
The record symbol acts as the scatter, and this symbol will open up the free spins round. If you land 4 scatters, then you will win 20 free spins. Any win that lands during those spins will be multiplied by either 1x, 2x, or 3x, and this is chosen completely at random. If you have 5 scatters, then you get those free spins as well as wilds placed on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. This should boost your chances of grabbing some wins. Finally, if you land scatters on all reels, then just wait and see how many rewards you get since Valens can complete a huge number of winning paylines.
Betting and Payouts for Ritchie Valens La Bamba
The betting range with this game is wider than most. The minimum bet is set at only $0.30 while the maximum bet climbs as high as $300. However, if you are lucky enough to land the jackpot, which means 6 Ritchie Valens symbols, then the payout is up to 6000x your bet. That does mean the real potential for a huge jackpot to be won, but even on a lower bet it still gives a healthy return. Even landing 3 symbols can lead to winning 120 coins at the bottom end of the payouts, which can still lead to a decent sum of money.
Ritchie Valens La Bamba is a cool slot game with a number of ways to win that are spread over all 6 reels. The jackpot on offer can be huge if you land it on the maximum bet, but with a high RTP, there will be ample opportunity to land some wins with this game.
