The legend of Zorro is definitely an enticing one. A romantic hero on a quest to deal with the bad guys. It sounds interesting. You must have seen the movie about Zorro, if you haven’t, you better. Here’s Aristocrats depiction of Zorro in their very own slot game. It looks outdated, but Zorro’s charm can still be felt. Despite the poor video and audio quality, this game has quite a lot to offer in the bonus features departments. Just when you thought you’re not winning, Zorro comes to the rescue, reaching out a helping hand.
Zorro is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows of symbols. Players are allowed to change the number of lines that will be in action in the range of 1 to 25. On top of this, it allows the player to adjust the bet amount placed per each line that is in play. There can be only 1 coin per active line, but this coin can worth between 0.01 and 2.00. If we do the math, the minimum bet is 0.01 and the maximum is 50 without the Bonus Mode activated. If you activate the bonus mode 10 additional coins will be deducted from your balance with every spin. The highest prize won by landing 5 of a kind is 5,000 times the bet amount. Zorro slot by Aristocrat comes with a theoretical RTP of 95.45%.
Sometimes being too content rich can have diminishing returns. The presence of so many different bonus features just confused us. That said, tunnel vision became an issue rather soon. We focused only on the wild and the scatter after a couple of spins. All we cared was winning. The fun factor was ruined, because we didn’t understand the game. From an appearance standpoint, the slot game is definitely outdated. The wild symbol is represented by Zorro himself, whereas the scatter is his loyal horse. Zorro substitutes for any other symbol except the scatter, to form a winning line. There’s a distinctive special bonus mode that costs you 10 coins per spin. It unlocks additional special features that make the game way more entertaining.
Press the Golden Zorro button located in the bottom right corner of the screen to activate the bonus mode. The Z, O and R appear on top of some A, K, Q, J, 10 symbols. If you form the word ZORRO on all 5 reels, regardless of the row the special feature is triggered randomly. In other words, the player cannot pick what bonus game he/she will play.
Tornado is the simplest one, granting a cash prize of 500x the bet amount. The 2nd bonus game is called Gold Coins. Players should match a prize, once two matching symbols are revealed the player is given a cash prize up to 500x the bet, plus the appropriate revealed multiplier up to a factor of 10.
Zorro’s trademark symbol, the big Z is featured in the Wild Z game. The player is given 3 free spins with one Wild Z added randomly on the reels. This Wild Z acts like a wild symbol, substituting for any other symbol except the scatter symbol.
The 4th bonus is called Barrels. Players can win up to 20 Free Spins containing a wild symbol. Furthermore, the less free games are chosen, the higher he multipliers can be. Players can win 5, 10, 15 and 20 free games.
Lastly, there’s the Magic Door. 5 free games are awarded and after each round the player has to choose one symbol and reveal a prize. Zorro, Juliana and Monastario are the hidden symbols and they bring prizes equal to 1000, 750 and 500 times the bet amount.
It’s an old story and an old slot. Players avoid this game solely due to the poor video quality. If it had the glossy look or some of the recently released slots, with smooth transitions and crispy, clear audio, it can become a hit. Then again, it has a number of unique features that perfectly depict Zorro’s heroism. As always, see if you can claim some free spins before you start playing Zorro slot.
