What is this mobile slot about?

Ai Dios Mio! Who will win the affections of the beautiful green-eyed lady!? You’re hoping you will, and win the jackpot, in this Esmeralda mobile slot.

The moment you open this Playtech slot machine, you get a sense of passion and drama, reserved only for late night latin soap operas.

If this Esmeralda is a gypsy, she’s a rich one, with emerald jewellery matching her eyes, and two Spanish mariachi chasing after her with their guitars and tambourines.

One of them is undoubtedly a young Antonio Banderas. Which we’re sure the ladies will enjoy spinning to their will. The lady herself is wild, and looks exactly like the leading actress in a bad soap; slightly slutty, and like she’s just smelt something awful.

Don’t underestimate the Esmeralda slot game

Sure, this mobile video slot might look a little tacky, but underneath the red rose curtain lies some big wins.

The reason for this is the scatter symbol which comes stacked across all the reels – the downside to this is that you only get a payout on 5 or more.

The bright side is that you start getting bonus games on 8 scatters, starting at 15 free spins, moving up to an incredible 70 free spins on 15 scatters.

And you can re-trigger them, not easily granted, but we’ve done it a few times (and played 30+ bonus games more than once) to know it’s in the cards.

Then, you’re talking 100 to 1000 times your bet. More if this Esmeralda slot game wild decides to grace you with her ‘come-hither’ stare.

This is still a jackpot slot

Though you won’t see the progressive jackpot when on demo mode, it’s definitely there, whether playing Esmeralda slot on mobile or online.

You’ll need to bet a minimum of 2 a spin, and a fair chunk gets taken towards the jackpot, meaning it climbs up to a few hundreds of thousands fairly quickly.

The downside is that this mobile slot can be very money hungry in order to make up for it. The wilds helps, and it comes more often in the free spins, but just remember that the top wins can be hard to come by.

Ultimately, we play on the Esmeralda video slot not for the jackpot, but for the bonus games. Once we caught a couple, regardless of our luck or how much we were betting, we moved on to something a little friendlier, like the Halloween Fortune mobile slot.

In-game bonus features

Wilds: Esmeralda herself is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except scatters. However, during the free spins she also substitutes for the scatter, leading to easier re-triggers.

How to win this jackpot: There are certain condition you need to meet, but basically, it's as 'simple' as lining up 5 wild symbols on any winning payline.

The conditions are:

  • Play all 25 paylines
  • Bet a minimum of 2 a spin

Scatters and Free Spins: This is the main draw of the Esmeralda mobile slot game. The scatters only start paying out when you get at least 5 on screen, as they come stacked across all reels.

Then you get free spins:

  • 8 scatters = 16x your bet + 15 free games
  • 9 scatters = 18x your bet + 17 free games
  • 10 scatters = 20x your bet + 19 free games
  • 11 scatters = 22x your bet + 20 free games
  • 12 scatters = 24x your bet + 22 free games
  • 13 scatters = 26x your bet + 25 free games
  • 14 scatters = 28x your bet + 35 free games
  • 15 scatters = 30x your bet + 70 free games

You can re-trigger the free spins indefinitely.


Closing thoughts

The Esmeralda mobile slot is a very dramatic game, with music that draws you into the spanish flair, and we have to admit we very much enjoyed the slightly tacky theme.

As a mobile jackpot slot it's maybe a little hungrier than we would like, but as a bonus game slot, it gives you plenty of chances at big wins with some unusual stacked scatters.

If you want an equally simple high variance machine, but without the jackpot, we'd also recommend the Zhao Cai Jin Bao slot machine by the same provider.
