Esmeralda Slots

EsmeraldaEsmeralda is a game which is themed around a beautiful Spanish woman. Dancing and singing are two things that have a lot to do with this movie, a fitting choice for a game that seems to want to celebrate the Latin heritage. It is a game which is offered by Playtech and it does well both feature and design wise.

With a maximum of 25 lines that can be activated, Esmeralda offers up to $15,000 cash as the top jackpot, but it’s not very expensive to play. It also has a progressive jackpot which can be triggered. As features, there are a lot of scatters present on the reels, free spins and wilds.

Features of Esmeralda

Esmeralda herself is the wild feature in this game. Alongside her you will find scatter symbols and a lot of free spins.

Esmeralda, the wild feature, will be one of your favorite symbols. First of all, it gives you prizes of up to 15,000x, or when you use all the lines you can expect even a progressive jackpot. If she doesn’t form a combo with similar symbols, it can still be of help by substituting for regular ones. Like in every other game, the wild has to land exactly in the right position before it’s able to help you with the new win. It can’t substitute for scatters in the base game, but it’s something that becomes possible during free spins.

Free Games Feature

The Red Rose scatter is another powerful feature, mostly because it works a bit differently than in other slots. Usually, a maximum of five scatter symbols will appear during a round, offering you prizes accordingly. In this case, all the positions of the game can be occupied by wilds. As many as 15 scattered Red Roses can take over, offering a huge number of free spins, but only average prizes. Having between 5 and 30 scattered Red Roses will give you payouts of 2x to 30x the bet.

As for the free spins, they start up when at least 8 symbols with Red Roses are present. You will get between 15 and 70 free spins, though for the maximum number you need all 15 positions to be occupied by scatters.

Betting options and jackpots

You only have to use one coin on each line that is active, so once you decide how many of the 25 lines you want, you will want to head on to the Line Bet section, to choose the coin denomination. This part is between $0.01 and $1, allowing you to place bets of up to $25.

Since the line bet only goes up to $1, the maximum value of 15,000 coins will be $15,000.

Design and symbols

A classic Latino theme is used for this game, and when I say that it’s because the slot has beautiful women dancing, Latino men, guitars, tambourines and dozens of beautiful red roses. These are all things that one can associate with the passionate Latin culture, and they all have a place in this game. There is a lot of red used in the design, but it doesn’t become bothersome. The themed symbols look good enough, but the playing cards are not as fun to look at.


Symbols: Esmeralda (15,000 coins, wild), Red Rose (30x the bet, scatter), Man black shirt (1,000 coins), Man white shirt (1,000 coins), Tambourine (875 coins), Guitar (875 coins), Earrings (700 coins), Necklace (700 coins), Ace (100 coins), King (100 coins), Queen (100 coins) and Jack (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

There are things that you will enjoy about this game, like the progressive jackpot, the Latino theme and the huge number of free spins. You don’t have to wager much on it either. Overall, it’s a game you should try out, but I doubt you will be playing it in the long run, as it doesn’t seem to have enough to offer.

The Esmeralda slot machine is offered through the Playtech platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
