The Havana Cubana game is a 5 reel and 40 payline slot that doesn’t appear different from the thousands of other games available for players. With a wild feature and one bonus game, you might think that Havana Cubana is pretty basic, but you would definitely be wrong. Stick around for a little and you will simply be drawn into one of the most innovative games to come around in many years. The theme is all Cuban, and it is a breath of fresh air in an industry that seems to recycle themes on a regular basis.
The games uses all the symbols that would transport you back to a time of Cuban clubs that dotted the coast lines. The lower paying symbols are drawn from a traditional deck of playing cards like the Ace, King, Queen, and Jack. The higher paying symbols range from dice, cigars, maracas, cigar box, tequila, fruit drinks, and a beautiful Cuban princess. The princess actually is the wild symbol in the game, and she definitely plays a much bigger role when you get to the bonus round.During regular play, the wild symbol can appear anywhere, and it substitutes for any other symbol except for the free games icon. The other symbol that makes Havana Cubana so special is called the directional wild. This symbol will appear on the screen on reels 2 or 4, looking like a compass with the 4 points of N, S, E, W, printed on it. When the reels stop spinning, if a directional wild appears, the little dial will begin to spin on the compass. When the dial stops, whichever direction it is pointing will be changed to a wild symbol.
Now if the dial is pointed diagonally, the nearest symbol will transform to a wild. But here is where the Havana Cubana game takes on a crazy twist. The direction of the arrow will continue to change symbols to wilds until it reaches the end of the reels. That means if there are two symbols between the compass and the edge of the reels, they all are turned to wild symbols. Then the game recalculates the wins based on the new wild symbols in place.
Now light up that big Cuban cigar and get ready for some real excitement. When you get 3 free spin symbols on the screen, the game awards you with 5 free spins at a 3x multiplier. When one of the directional wild symbols appear, the arrow points to the symbols that will be changed to wild symbols. Here is where your chance to score some huge profits begins. Each time the symbols are changed to wild symbols, they now become locking symbols. This means they stay right in that position even when the reels begin spinning. Each time the reels stop, those wilds are in place, and new directional symbols continue to add wild symbols to the screen.
Imagine a board full of locked wild symbols! Your winning will explode off the screen and your bankroll will reach heights you have only been dreaming about. Set your bets to maximum, and take a chance with Havana Cubana. You might finally be able to afford those expensive cigars that you have heard so much about.
