Aristocrat Technologies is one of the largest gaming developers in Australia and one of the leading developers worldwide. The company has created many legendary titles, and Zorro, based on the ancient legend of Zorro, is one of them. The game offers its players many unique special features, including five different bonus rounds and a large set jackpot.
The Theme of Zorro Pokies
Zorro is based on the legendary characters famous in literature and motion picture. While there have been numerous versions of the tale, the look of Zorro, with the hat, cape, mask, and sword, have been constant, and these are featured in the Aristocrat pokies game as well.
The silhouette of Zorro forms the background of the playing screen, looking out over the reels. The reels include characters of the legend, including Zorro himself, Juliana, Monstario, and Zorro’s squeeze, as well as theme-related symbols such as gold coins and barrels. Other symbols include the standard high value poker playing cards, including the nine, ten, jack, queen, king, and aces. If players place an ante before their bet, this will enable the Zorro mode, in which the standard high value poker cards will be changed to represent the letters ‘Z’, ‘O’, ‘R’, ‘R’, and ‘O’, giving players the chance to spell the word ZORRO and trigger the bonus round. Standard pay line wins are still possible.
Zorro Bonus Round
In order to trigger the Aristocrat Zorro bonus round, players will need to have the letters ‘Z’, ‘O’, ‘R’, ‘R’, and ‘O’, spelling ZORRO, land on the screen. These need to appear in the correct order and on the same pay line in order to trigger the bonus. Once the bonus round has been triggered, players will be taken to another screen where they can choose one of five bonuses to play. The choice, however, is not up to the player, and one of the five bonus rounds will be selected automatically for the player.
The five Zorro bonus games available are the Z Bonus, the tornado, the magic door, choose a barrel, and the match a prize bonus round, most of which come with set multipliers and various other offerings.
The Z Bonus offers Canadian casino players various free spins with three wild symbols. The tornado bonus gives players instant cash payouts. The ‘choose a barrel bonus’ allows players to shoot at barrels to uncover cash prizes or free spins. The magic door bonus round allows players to pick a random character in order to win a prize. The match a prize bonus allows players to choose a multiplier of their choice.
While the Aristocrat Zorro pokies game offers these five different bonus rounds, the game does not offer conventional wild symbols or scatter symbols.
The Zorro Jackpot
The Zorro pokies game by Aristocrat offers a large fixed jackpot of five thousand coins. While players are able to adjust their betting levels to suit their pocket, choosing which coin denomination they wish to activate, how many coins they wish to play per pay line, and how many of the twenty-five pay lines they wish to play on, the maximum jackpot is only up for grabs when playing on all twenty-five pay lines with the maximum bet set.
