Who among you hasn't heard (if not danced) to La Bamba, a big Ritchie Valens hit launched in the late 1960s? Aware of an ever-lasting popularity of the song and the famous rock & roll pioneer, Realtime Gaming has decided to develop an all-ways-pay video slot incorporating both. Wonderful retro design comes combined with engaging and potentially lucrative specials, such as expanding Wilds which double the prize, free spins with multipliers and a few additional treats. Re-visit the 50s and return to the 21st century with your balance boosted by 6,000x bet per way.
Ritchie Valens Goes Wild
RTG has done a fantastic job of replicating the feel of the era which inspired Ritchie's La Bamba. The reel area has been set against a backdrop featuring 50's American diner, with the controls and symbols all fashioned in the same retro style. Ritchie Valens' music will keep playing while you spin 6 reels and form wining combinations which pay from left to right and from right to left. You'll see none of the generic icons such as omnipresent playing cards, only symbols closely related to the theme and the period. Being a music-inspired game, Ritchie Valens' La Bamba features old gramophones, guitars, records and concert tickets. The man himself acts as a Wild card and substitutes for all other icons, even the Scatter. He'll appear only on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, but to compensate will expand over the entire reel and double each payout he helps deliver.
The More Scatters, the Better the Treats
La Bamba Records are Scatters capable of launching the free spins round. Land 4 of them simultaneously and you'll win up to 20 spins on the house and see each respective payout multiplied by x1, x2, or x3. Getting the feature triggered by 5 Scatters will offer same amount of free spins and same multipliers, but also provide additional expanding Wilds on each of the 4 middle reels. If you manage to land 6 Scatters, the aforementioned treats will receive a further boost via Wild Ritchie Valens also gracing the first and the last reel. Theoretically, you could be spinning on the house with all 6 reels turned completely Wild, and you don’t need us to tell you how rewarding that can be.
