Mucho Money from mFortune: Slot Review - make lots of Mexican moola!
Mucho Money is a game exclusively available to play at mFortune and it is set in the Mexican Wild Wild West. So you better get ready to dust off your sombrero, pop on a poncho and jump on a donkey as you venture forth into the dust bowls of a Mexican desert filled with cacti, money grabbing bandits and some very hungry looking vultures! Will you be able to make it to the border to pursue the American dream or will you be left scrambling for an emergency exit in a harsh and unforgiving Mexican desert?
Mucho Money is a 5 reel slot game with 15 paylines and comes with Free Spins, a Progressive Jackpot and a mini-game: Adios Amigos.
The first feature to highlight is the Wild symbol and this is depicted by a brightly decorated skull. It substitutes for all symbols except for the Mini-Game and Free Spins symbols. This symbol is quite important as it is the highest paying symbol in the game. If you are lucky enough to land 5 of these symbols then you will be treated to a glorious 2,000X your bet! Another feature of this symbol is that any combination of the Wild symbol along with the Jackpot symbol that totals 5 symbols will result in a wonderful 300x payout.
To trigger the Free Spins feature, you need to land 3 Free Spins symbols anywhere across the reels. The Free Spins symbol is represented by a pair of maracas. The more Free Spins symbols you land then the more Free Spins you will receive. For example, if you land 5 of these symbols then you will be given 9 Free Spins.
Mucho Money also features a brilliant mini-game called Adios Amigos. To trigger this game, you need to land 2 or more Bonus symbols on an active payline. The Bonus symbol is depicted by a Mexican guitar player with the American flag behind him. Try to land as many Bonus symbols as possible as the more you land, the bigger the multipliers become in the mini-game. The mini-game itself involves moving an amigo across a trail while trying to avoid traps along the way in order to make it over the border wall and into America. If you manage to make it over the wall then you will be awarded a huge multiplier prize!
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The graphics are very impressive as the game is set in a cartoon-like desert that is filled with all manner of Mexican iconography such as sombreros, mules, and ponchos. The symbols are bright and colourful and also pay tribute to Mexican culture as they range from tequila bottles, pinatas, maracas, and even brightly decorated skulls! The animations are excellent as symbols spring to life when you land a win and you'll notice a jolly Mexican play his guitar beside the reels with a vulture forever circling in this distance as you play the game.
The music has a real Latino flavour as you might expect and consists of a variety of dramatic Spanish guitar strums. If you listen closely enough you will even hear the hiss of a rattlesnake each time you spin the reels. A nice touch there if you ask me!

Our Verdict on Mucho Money
Mucho Money is produced by mFortune and it’s a fun-filled trip to the Mexican Wild Wild West. The game is easy to just pick up and play but quite hard to stop once you get going. The standout feature of the slot is the absorbing mini-game which I managed to trigger frequently while playing. It is also nice to see there is a progressive jackpot to aim for which can reach a reach high of several thousand, this should be more than enough of an incentive for players to visit this desert!
