5 Reel Cuban Theme Slot
The Havana Cubana slot features 5 spinning reels with three rows and 40 fixed paylines. The coin value can be set from 0.01 coins up to 10 coins per pay line. Other features of the slot include an auto-spin feature where players can set the game to play a set amount of spins without interaction. Looking at bonus features, the Havana slot offers up both a standard Wild symbol and a directional Wild symbol. Players can also look forward to a free spins bonus with more directional Wilds.
Standard and Directional Wilds
On the reels, the Havana Cubana slot features seven standard themed symbols and four high-card symbols. The highest paying non-bonus symbol is the mojito cocktail followed by the bottle of rum. Next in line is the box of cigars followed by the music shakers, more cigars and finally the dominos. The classic card symbols from jack to ace make up the complete set of symbols. The standard Wild symbol in this slot is the woman with the flower in her hair. She can substitute for any of the other symbols to form a winning combination.
One symbol to look out for in the Havana Cubana slot is the directional Wild. This is the image of the compass. When one or more compass symbols land on the reels, the compass needle will begin to spin. Whichever direction the red needle points, all the symbols in that row will into Wilds. If the compass is on the outer row and the needle points off screen, the compass itself will turn into a Wild.
Free Games with Locking Directional Wilds
The main bonus feature in the Havana Cubana slot is the free games feature. This is triggered by landing the free games bonus symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time. Once triggered, players will be awarded 5 free games with a 3x multiplier on each win. The free games feature also includes an added bonus where the standard Wild symbol is doubled into two colours and the Directional Wilds are locked on screen.
This means that whenever a directional Wild appears, it will stay in the same positon for the next spin, turning all symbols into Wilds depending on the direction of the arrow. The Wild symbol has alternating colours and will replace the compass if the direction of the needle points out of the screen. At the same time, the standard Wild symbol will appear and replace any standard symbol in the game.
