The bets in this video slot with an RTP of 96.19% range from 0.30 to 150.00 per spin and rockers stand a chance of winning a max payout of 10000.
Richie Valens: La Bamba Bonus Features
The rock and roll soundtracks and theme screams vintage and this slot is an absolute classic as it relies on base game modifiers and a Free Spins feature to boost one’s winning potential.
The wild symbol is the man himself and he will replace all symbols including the scatter, and whenever he lands on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, the wilds expand to cover the reels and players receive multiple wins. Moreover, each win gets doubled with a 2x multiplier.
The highlight of the game is the Free Spins Bonus feature. To trigger this round, you must land 4 or more scatters to receive between 8 and 20 Free Spins. A random multiplier of 1x, 2x and 3x gets awarded for each win. Should you land a further 4 scatters the Free Spins rounds will trigger.
