The Taco Brothers Derailed slot brings back the Taco Brothers Paso, Pepe, and Pico, who will walk into your heart and steal all the treasure on your behalf.
The year is 1892, and the Evil Captain Diaz is stealing all the gold from the villagers in Santa Maria again – not unlike the original Taco Brothers slot. Only this time the stakes are higher, the gold is easier to capture, and you get an extra row of symbols with a 5×4 reels.
Taco Brothers Derailed is 6 reels,4 rows tasty slot machine with walking wilds, multiplying wilds, a bonus, and a super bonus game where you get all the walking wilds and a top win of 10,000x your bet.
With an RTP of 95% and 466 ways to win, the mid volatility gives you a wide betting range of 0.20 to 60 a spin, allowing most players to enjoy some wicked mechanics set in the gold rush in the turn of the century Mexico.
The three taco brothers are the highest paying symbols of the lot, followed by gold, lanterns, a buffalo skull, a whistle, and maracas. That’s only 8 symbols in total, giving you stacks of symbols over all 5 reels and 4 rows.
It makes it a little less volatile than the likes of the Phoenix Graveyard slot or the Nitropolis 3 slot, but the base game can be a little slow at times despite that.
And then it burns bright when one of the 3 Taco brothers turns into walking wild symbols and moves one respin at a time to the left. If they are part of a win, they turn other of the same taco brothers into wilds.
It can give you some very profitable spins, but mostly you get around 20x to 50x your bet.
3 scatters will trigger the normal Taco Brothers Derailed slot bonus. One at a time, the taco brother will show up on reel 6 moving from left to right. If the Captain shows up, he locks up the taco brother, if the Seńorita shows up she frees the taco brother.
That’s how you get big wins, by having multiple Taco brothers locked and unlocked, giving you re-spins after respins, and this time they come with random multipliers. They even turn other symbols into wilds, much like in the base game.
But get 4 scatters and the super free spins come into play, where all three Taco brothers show up at the same time, with a wild multiplier on the top reel, walking one spin at a time until they walk off the reels completely. There’s where you get 10,000x your bet max win.
Is that likely to happen often? No? But the standard free spins are enticing enough to keep us playing, and we can see this becoming a new favourite at one of our best online casinos when we head to play the Pacific Gold slot, also by Elk Studios.

Wild: The 'w' is the wild symbol and can replace any other symbol except the bonus, the walking wild taco brothers, the walking multiplier wild, Captain Diaz, and Señorita symbols.
Walking Wilds: The three taco brothers can turn wild randomly in the base game and become walking wilds. They move leftwards and give you respins each time they move leftwards, till they fall off the screen. However, they also turn their own Taco Brother symbols in view into wild symbols.
You can have multiple walking wilds during the respins, and the bonus symbols will stay sticky throughout the respins.
Walking Multiplier Wild: This symbol only shows up on the top row and moves leftward until it spins out from the first reel. It acts just like the other walking wilds, except they have up to 5x multipliers.
Bonus Symbols and Free Spins: 3 or more bonus symbols anywhere in view will trigger infinite bonus spins. During the bonus spins, each one of the walking wild Taco Brothers is guaranteed to show up. They land one by one on reel 6, one at a time with a random multiplier attached on each spin as they walk off the screen.
If Captain Diaz shows up, however, he locked up the active walking wilds. If the Seńorita symbol shows up, she frees the Taco brothers to continue walking along with the screen.
The next taco brother doesn't show until the first taco brother is locked up or the taco brothers have fallen off the reel. If Señorita and Captain Diaz appear in the same spin the Senorita will stop the captain from locking up the walking taco brothers and she will turn Diaz into a wild symbol.
The bonus ends when the wilds are all locked up or have walked off the screen.
Super Bonus Game: 4 bonus symbols anywhere in view trigger the Super Bonus Game.
You start the free spins with all three walking wild taco brothers and the walking multiplier wild along with the sixth reel. They all move simultaneously leftward towards reel 1. Captain Diaz is wild in the super bonus and can't lock up the taco brothers.
The bonus ends when all walking wilds have left the first reel.
The original was good, but the Taco Brothers Derailed slot online is so much better. The walking wilds are all here, but the multipliers add an extra dimension that elevates the gameplay.
The excellent bonus super free spins, which gives you the chance to get all the Taco Brothers working together to give you truly majestic wins, is what makes this a 5-star review.
The RTP of 95% can make the base game feel a little slow at times, but then it sets the reels alight with a whole load of walking wilds.
A mid-to-high variance machine that with a huge top win of 10,000x your bet should please all gamblers of all budgets, especially fans of Elk Studios slots.
