Taco Fury XXXtreme: Slot Overview

One of the joys of life, for some people, is being open-minded about food and willing to try the various cuisines from other cultures. According to the Bucket List Journey website, potentially unusual dishes you might want to try could be ants egg soup from Thailand, alpaca meat in South America, or Mongolian airag, which is an alcoholic milk. It might seem like there's a McDonald's or Burger King on every other street corner, but the world still has the power to surprise with the variety of its cuisines. However, even the most iron stomached foody would have trouble downing the delicacies on offer in NetEnt's online slot Taco Fury XXXtreme. In this game, a zombie chef cooks up tacos where a key ingredient is 'ground hoomin brainz'.

Yeah, gross, but Taco Fury XXXtreme actually looks pretty neat, where a busted-up skull-adorned, graffitied food truck has parked up for business outside an amusement ground. Visually and atmospherically, Taco Fury XXXtreme is like the polar opposite of NetEnt's slot Fruit Shop Megaways, as a contrast. Nicely presented, but still not entirely sold on what this chef is trying to sell.

Rammed to the side of the truck is Taco Fury XXXtreme's game grid, made up of 5 reels, 3 rows, and 9 static bet lines. Up top is a 3-position extra row which will be covered soon in the features section. Perhaps surprisingly, given the title, Taco Fury XXXtreme is a low volatile game, pumping out three RTP values depending on the model with 96.05% being the highest. With bet selection of 10 p/c to $/€200 per spin, players also have access to two bonus buys, detailed below.

Along Taco Fury XXXtreme's 9 paylines, winning combinations begin from the left-hand side and must hit across adjacent reels. At least 3 or more are needed, and winning combinations may be made up of 10-A card royals, shoes, toothy drinks, spiky rollers, eye-balled bottles, or chef symbols. Wilds appear in a number of different forms and ways, as we will see, but their shared function is being able to substitute for any regular pay symbol. The regular wild is called the Taco Wild.

Taco Fury XXXtreme: Slot Features

The features dripping out of this taco include Wild Explosions, Re-Spins, and the XXXtreme Spins buy.

Wild Explosions

Placed above reels 2, 3, and 4 is another row where the Chef Zombie's Special Sauce Wild Explosion symbols may land on each spin. If Taco Wilds land beneath one of these Wild Explosion symbols, the special symbol drops onto the Taco Wilds, triggering their respective modifier, like so:

  • Orange Wild – increases its win multiplier by 1 and adds a Taco Wild on each adjacent reel.
  • Red Wild – increases its win multiplier by 1 and adds a Taco Wild above and below it.
  • Purpler Wild – increases its win multiplier by 1 and adds 2 to 3 Taco Wilds to random positions on the grid.

Re-spins

Once the Wild Explosion has finished adding or upgrading Taco Wilds, chains appear, wrapping them into place on the grid. Then a free respin is awarded, which respins all of the non-Taco Wild positions.

XXXtreme Spins

In the words of the game sheet, Zombie enthusiasts who are too restless to wait for the end of the world can trigger two possible XXXtreme Spins features. These are:

  • 20x the bet guarantees 1 Wild Explosion.
  • 60x the bet guarantees 2 Wild Explosions.

Taco Fury XXXtreme: Slot Verdict

From the cosmos of Starburst XXXtreme to the sugary drinks of Milkshake XXXtreme and now to zombie tacos, the XXXtreme range has been a wildly unpredictable ride so far. Where will NetEnt take it next? There really is no way of guessing. Um, how about Decoupage XXXtreme? Let's see. For now, we've got Taco Fury XXXtreme to work with, and despite the name, it isn't all that extreme. Okay, so the XXXtreme part refers more to the bonus buy menu, but still, slap a word like that on an online slot title, and there was a certain assumption which Taco Fury XXXtreme failed to meet.

On the positive side, Taco Fury XXXtreme has a neat look and a zombie serving brain-filled tacos… who saw that one coming? Clearly, NetEnt funnelled a healthy dose of creativity into Taco Fury XXXtreme during its design. The features aren't bad either, though; without a full-blown dedicated bonus round, they might be viewed as a little thin. Still, the respins feature fits with the XXXtreme Spins element, so the gameplay makes more sense than the admittedly enjoyably wacky cover story. It does mean that Taco Fury XXXtreme is limited in what it can ultimately achieve, though, and when compared to the two previous slots in the XXXtreme series, or the majority of online slots in general, its max win of 533x the bet is hardly far out stuff.

Factor in the looks, subject matter, and the particular feature set, and Taco Fury XXXtreme inhabits a sparsely inhabited sector of the market. There just isn't much else like it at all, really. The result is a slot which is so niche it feels like it might really float some players' boats or, have them scanning the dictionary wondering why their definition of the word 'extreme' is so at odds with Taco Fury XXXtreme's.

Good

Taco Fury XXXtreme might have a certain role to play in the grand scheme of online gambling, but it isn’t as extreme as it makes out to be.
