Ritchie Valens La Bamba slot review

Ritchie Valens La Bamba slot goes live in RTG casinos.

US friendly gaming provider Realtime Gaming has proved once again the world still remembers “the Day the Music Died”.

The company has announced the launch of its brand-new online slot game inspired by Ritchie Valens, an American rock musician, a singer, a guitarist, and a songwriter whose career lasted just eight months.

The Flavor Of The Fifties

Valens, best known for his hit song ”La Bamba”, died in a plane crash at the age of 18, while this tragic event took the lives of Buddy Holly and J.P. ”The Big Bopper” Richardson as well.

The new rock ‘n’ roll themed game is now available to all players who like to dance around to the sounds of 1950’s music, but don’t mind grabbing hefty wins while they’re at it.

Ritchie Valens La Bamba is a six-reel three-row game, featuring All Ways Pays system with 729 possible winning combinations, and packed with wild multipliers and a free spins round, set in the retro coffee shop.

The 2018 release offers plenty of retro symbols such as electric guitars, tickets to Valens concert, radios, dancing shoes, gramophones, autographs, and the records signed by Richie Valens himself.

Lots Of Potentially Lucrative Features

One of the biggest rock ’n’ roll icons is the game’s expanding wild that covers the entire reel it lands on and doubling any win when a part of a winning combination.

To launch the Free Spins round, a minimum of 4 Scatters, represented by the La Bamba logo, are required.

Four Scatters will award 20 free games will be launched, along with a X3 multiplier, multiplied by up to 3 times. Five Scatter will award the same number of spin, but will offer more expanding Wilds on the reels 2,3,4 and 5. If 6 scatters activate the feature, players will get additional expanding wilds on reels 1 and 6 only.

Another key thing to remember is the Free Spin game can be retriggered by landing additional 3 Scatter, with another 20 spin on offer.

During the Free Spins round, players can up to 6,000 times the triggering bet! You can enjoy this game at any of Realtime Gaming-powered online casinos.
