Videoslots Casino has recently added a brand new online slot titled Fiesta Cubana from Nextgen Gaming / Side City Studios, for savvy players you will instantly recognise all of the mechanics in this slot, as it looks to use the same game mechanics as Cash Stampede from Nextgen which is no bad thing.

Fiesta Cubana is set in the streets of Havana, with dancing Senors and Senoritas adorning the reels with a fitting musical theme as you spin the reels and attempt to trigger the Tiempo De Fiesta free spin bonus round.

Fiesta Cubana is a 5×3 reel 243-way slot, with a very unique and exciting mechanic that occurs in the base game where winning combinations that include the special wild symbol are held and locked in place whilst a re-spin of the reels occurs, if any further matching symbols land on the reels this process continues, given that this is a 243-way slot, landing lots of the same symbols can quickly lead to some big wins and plenty of excitement as you hope for further symbols to land.

To boost the excitement further there is also a free spin bonus round which is triggered by landing 3 of the special scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 only, this then grants the players with an initial 8 free spins with the ability to re-trigger the bonus too.

Tiempo De Fiesta (Free Spins Round)

Once the main bonus is triggered the player is granted 8 free spins, and things really start to heat up as the special held wild is present in the middle of reel 3 for the duration of the bonus round, making it much easier to create winning combinations on the reels which then grants re-spins of the reels where you are looking for further matching symbols to land.

Free spins can also be re-triggered by landing 3 scatters during the bonus round.

Fiesta Cubana is rated as a Medium to High Volatility slot from Nextgen and comes with an RTP (Return to Player) of 95.27%.

Overall Opinions

Overall this is a solid release from Nextgen, it really all boils down to whether you enjoyed playing Cash Stampede or that style of slot machine in the past, as the mechanics are pretty much identical but with Fiesta Cubana you have of course got the whole Cuban/Havana graphical and music theme going on.

One major plus for this style of slot though is that it isn’t just totally dependent on the bonus round to score big wins, during base gameplay once the re-spin feature starts you can quickly rack up multiple 5 of a kind wins with the premium symbols.
