Bally’s Havana Cuba Game
To many players, especially in Europe, Havana in Cuba is something of a mystery. We know that they don’t historically get on all that well with the US yet have some of the most popular exports in the world, mostly by way of rum and cigars. Indeed, these exports make for some obvious choices when it comes to game symbols and slots developers love it when such an opportunity arises. This leads to a game where players have forty win lines to line up dominos, cigars, cocktails and just about everything else that a gaming audience would associate with the city and country. It also packs in its fair share of bonus features and while they’re not exactly themed, they definitely add to the action.
Compass Wild Cards
One nice feature that the game brings to the table is that the Cuban woman serves as a standard wild, but is also joined by a directional wild. It only appears on the second and fourth reels and looks like a compass. When it does land, the needle will spin and whatever direction it lands in will cause all symbols on the board in that direction to turn into wilds too. Land one on the second reel and get it to point to the right and you’ve pretty much guaranteed yourself a five of a kind win, for example. Land both compass wilds at the same time and you’re well on the way to even bigger rewards thanks to the forty win lines that are always in play.
Havana Cuba Free Spins
The free games scatter is an appropriate choice of symbol for triggering the bonus round and landing one each on reel two, three and four will award five free games. Five may not sound like much, especially when players consider that it’s not actually possible to trigger more spins within the round, but this is where the compass wild comes to the rescue once again. Any symbol that turns wild as a result of the special wild card will remain that way for the rest of the round. So, if you complete the aforementioned combination of a compass wild pointing to the right on the second reel early on, you can be sure of multiple massive five of a kind wins with even more to come!
The theme on Havana Cuba is a fun one whether you’ve visited or not but the unique compass wilds are definitely the best reason to play this game. They can be hit or miss like any other feature but when they do hit, they almost always hit big! See what you think and how they play out for you by checking out the full game at the top of this page!
