The special symbols that fall into view on the top reel are the key to winning rewards in Dia Del Mariachi. The piñata awards a prize of 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x your bet, the firecracker transforms itself and all symbols below it barring scatters into wilds, and the rocket turns itself and three random positions on reels 2-6 of the main panel into wilds. Then there’s the wheel. If this one triggers, you get one chance to spin for the Mini, Minor, Major or Mega Jackpot. Respectively, these award 15x, 50x, 500x and 10,000x your stake. But be careful! Special symbols don’t award their prizes unless a Sombrero Spin triggers first. This happens randomly during the base game. Top reel positions are highlighted and special symbols that fill them are triggered in turn. Wilds can also appear on the main panel.
A non-random way of triggering a Sombrero Spin is during free spins. Having four scatters in view triggers a round of 10, with two extra free spins for every additional scatter over four. What’s magical about free spins is that during them, Sombrero Spins are always active! To activate free spins more frequently, you can exercise the Feature Buy options, which allows you to buy a round of free spins for 80x your stake.
