Toro Gordo


Toro Gordo

This game on AGS’ sleek Orion Slant cabinet is the latest in the company’s Xtreme Jackpots progressive link, which links various games to one progressive prize. The link for this game also includes popular games like Da Ji Da Li and Stampede Power.

The base game is in the PowerXStream format, with 243 ways to win on every spin. Wins are registered via adjacent symbols; there are no paylines.

Toro Gordo carries a four-level progressive triggered by a mystery picking event. Randomly when a wild symbol lands on the reels during the base game, the screen will switch to a picking game featuring 12 coins. The player selects until matching three symbols, corresponding to one of the progressive jackpots—a parrot for the Mini resetting at $10, a bird for the Minor resetting at $25, a purple piñata for the Major resetting at $800, or a blue piñata for the top Grand prize, resetting at $10,000.

Candy flies from the piñata once the jackpot is hit in a clever celebration sequence.

The main bonus is a free-spin event in which the player selects the volatility. Three or more adjacent bonus symbols scattered on the reels gives the player a choice of 12 free spins with win multipliers up to 27X, nine free spins with multipliers up to 64X, six free spins with multipliers up to 125X, or a random event in which the computer picks the number of spins and the multiplier.

The free-spin event can be retriggered with bonus symbols on a free game.
