Game description

Taco Brothers Derailed Slot (ELK)

Taco Brothers Derailed Slot (ELK)This slot is the third in a series that ELK Studios is creating. Taco Brothers Derailed doesn’t differ much from the original 2015 release.

The action in the series takes place in Mexico, in 1881, and the leading role is taken by several mariachis. The villain role is taken by Captain Diaz in what appears to be a well-executed slot.

Below is what you can expect from Taco Brothers Derailed:

Game Set-Up

For the latest release, ELK Studios has gone with a 6-reel grid, with up to 466 pay lines.

For the features, we get things like Taco Train Heist bonus, Walking Wilds, and Walking Multiplier Wilds among others.

Betting and Prizes

ELK Studios is one of the developers with the best paying slots machines and Taco Brothers Derailed does not disappoint. To play the slot for real money, all that you need to do is select from the provided betting range of $0.20 and $100 per spin.

The top prize is 10, 000xs the stake which translates to $1,000,000 per spin. It is such a fair amount, especially for a slot with medium to high volatility.

The RTP is a little disappointing at 95%, an unusual figure for a modern slot from ELK who are known to give their games 96% and above.

Taco Brothers Derailed Slot Features

The slot offers several features among them the wild symbol which also comes in different variants. The regular one comes in the image of a W, and usual, it will work as a substitute for other symbols as you form winning combos.

Then there are the Walking Wilds that appear in the images of three Taco Brothers. It is their appearance that will trigger the respins. These symbols will keep on moving to the left, and eventually leave the game area. New symbols will keep on appearing on the rest of the open positions. All matching Taco Brother symbols will then be transformed into wilds.

Additionally, the slot will give you multiplier versions for the Walking Wilds. These powerful features can boost your prizes by up to 5x. You may get this multiplier on the regular wilds as well.

The bonus wheel is another interesting feature that you're likely going to get on the 2nd to the 5th reels. Landing between 3 and 4 on the reels will trigger the bonus game/Super Bonus game. Some new symbols will also appear, with Captain Diaz landing on the 1st reel, while the Senorita lands on the 6th.

On the 6th reel, you will get all versions of the Walking Wilds, and you will notice their tendency to move towards the 1st reel. They are the symbols to apply Random Multipliers.

With Captain Diaz landing on the 1st reel, the Walking Wild will be locked in place where it's closest to it. Again, Senorita will unlock a wild which is closer to reel 1, or even direct it back to reel 6.

If you can trigger the Super Bonus mode via 4 of the bonus symbols, you initially get three variants of wilds, alongside a multiplier wild (Captain Diaz also serves as a wild). The Free Spins mode will end after you land on the 1st reel with all Walking Wilds. It can also end once all Taco Brother Wilds get locked in position.

Theme & Design

From the design to the graphics and even the theme, it is clear that Taco Brothers Derailed borrows from the Mexican theme.

ELK Studios has given it a modern design, and the three brothers serve as its heroes and premium icons. Other symbols come in the images of pinatas, gold bars, lamps, whistles, and cow skulls.


Overall, this is another great slot title by ELK Studios. I’m very impressed by its powerful features, and great payout potential, but not its below-average RTP.
