Zorro Slot Game has Array of Bonuses
New Zealand pokies players who enjoy the variety of game features displayed in various Aristocrat slot titles will find more than enough bonus features in Zorro to keep them happy, many triggered at random during the game. The Magic Door Bonus, for example, allows players to pick one of three doors, which will reveal one of the game’s three main characters. Whenever the chosen character appears during the ensuing 5 free games, players can win up to 1,000 the line bet.
The Barrel Bonus, which confronts the player after a round of free spins, the Zorro Bonus, has been triggered in regular play, shows the player several barrels containing different numbers of free spins, along with several varying multiplier values. The more the spins, the lower the multipliers, so players must pick a combination to try get the best prizes from the upcoming 5, 10, 15 or 20 free games.
The Zorro slot Wild Z Bonus also occurs during free spins. A red letter Z appears in one window on the reels, and remains there throughout the bonus round, substituting for all icons except the Scatter to help complete more winning lines.
Still More Bonuses to Come
Aristocrat never hesitates to keep adding innovations to a slot title, and Zorro also features a random Tornado Bonus. When triggered, it can win up to 500X the line bet of a spin that activated the Zorro Bonus. The Gold Coins Bonus presents players with an array of coins, and players must pick coins until they reveal two matching prizes, also up to 500X the line bet, to add to their score.
The Zorro Bonus, which makes it possible to activate the various other bonuses, is triggered by a feature included on a few Aristocrat slots. If a player playing on the highest betting level hits the button to add a 1.00 bonus bet to their total wager per spin, the letters Z, O and R can appear on the five reels in place of some of the A, K, Q and J symbols. When the letters finish up on all five reels to spell ZORRO, the Zorro bonus is activated, along with all the other bonus possibilities that can yield more free spins and multipliers.
Staying True to the Zorro Theme
Zorro is a slot based on a familiar and well loved adventure tale, and apart from the ubiquitous Aristocrat Poker symbols, the game’s iconography is steeped in the legend. The reels with their 25 paylines hang stark against the backdrop of a neon-backlit Zorro silhouette, and the game features a bag of Gold and a Gunpowder Barrel as medium-value symbols, with the villainous Alcalde Monastario, and Zorro’s sweetheart Juliana, completing the standard icons. Monastario wins 1,000 coins, and Juliana 2,000, for five of a kind.
Zorro himself is both the game’s highest-value icon, worth 5,000 coins for five matches on a payline, and the Wild. The only icon he cannot stand in for to complete a win is the Scatter; his Horse. Three, four or five Scatters in any position win a multiplier of the total bet for the spin: respectively 5X, 20X and 50X.
