Olé España is a slot which transports you to the delightful sights, sounds and scenery of Spain. On the reels, you’ll find a variety of famous Spanish landmarks, including the Sagrada Familia. Every time you hit spin you are met by an array of upbeat Spanish guitars.
This solid online slot game features a free spins bonus round with a nice added multiplier, while the wild symbol is much more profitable than usual. This slot is part of a series of similar games covering countries and cities which include Viva L’Italia and Love in London.
This 888 Games designed slot has the almost standard 5×3 reel configuration found at the vast majority of online slots today. Wins are paid from left to right and there are a set number of 20 win lines.
The highest paying standard symbols in the game are the landmarks and landing five in a row will pay out between 750 and 250 coins, these landmarks including the aqueduct in Segovia and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. The other themed standard symbol is two bulls stampeding along on the Pamplona bull run and this has a top prize of 125 coins. These symbols, as is the case at many slots today, are completed by the playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.
The wild symbol is represented by the title of the slot on a rich, red background. This is easily the highest paying symbol in the entire game. It has a top prize of an amazing 10,000 coins for landing the maximum five in a row – huge in comparison to the pay outs for the standard symbols. Even hitting four wild symbols in a row has a pay-out of 2,000, still far in excess of any other wins. This wild symbol has another added bonus too. Every time it acts a substitute for another symbol and you land a win, the win amount will be immediately doubled.
The symbol depicting the Sagrada Familia is the scatter and you’ll land an immediate win if landing anywhere between 2 and 5 scatters anywhere on the reels. This starts at 2x your total, all the way up to 100x your total bet. With 3 or more scatters on the reels, you’ll also gain entry into the free spins bonus feature.
You’ll have an impressive 15 free spins, but what makes this feature even better is the fact that any wins throughout the free spins will be trebled (except for when you land the wild symbol five times in a row, which will still pay out just 10,000 coins). If you manage to land 3, 4 or 5 scatters anywhere on the reels again during this feature, an additional 15 free spins will be added to your current amount.
This Spanish themed slot is played out against the backdrop of an ancient arena, the grey, dusty stone work giving the slot a real historical feel, although it could just as easily be a snap shot of parts of Spain today. The reels are boxed in squares, with the Spanish landmarks all looking very impressive. Unfortunately, the many playing card symbols in the game can dominate and these look a little unsightly in comparison to the other more impressive visuals. The accompanying Spanish guitar soundtrack is a nice boost to the game however.
The controls of this slot are very straightforward. With a set number of win lines, you have no decision to make, so you simply have to set your bet size. The best option you’ll find is the auto play. Simply click on the button and you’ll see a pop up and you’ll choose from 10, 25, 50, 75 or an infinite amount of spins.
Olé España is an entertaining slot which will have most appeal for those with an interest in Spain and the landmarks associated with the country. Graphically, the game is solid, although the playing card symbols can be a little too much, while the sound is good too. While there is nothing original about the gameplay, the high paying wild symbol and the free spins feature are both ‘nice haves’ and overall this makes for a game that is worth a spin or two.
