Nacho Libre Slot Review

Released way back in 2015, Nacho Libre was a hit slot produced by ISoftBet. This wrestling themed slot is very reminiscent of the movie ‘Nacho Libre’ starring Jack Black which came out in 2006.

There is also a red bell with the writing ‘Nacho Libre Mexican Fight’ on it that is a wild which can replace any of the symbols in the above table.

The scatter symbol is the writing ‘Nacho Libre’. Three or more scatters trigger a series of free spins.

Note that if a wild replaces a symbol in a line, that win is doubled.

Nacho Libre The Movie

Nacho Libre was directed by Jared Hess (of Napoleon Dynamite fame) and starred Jack Black. The film enjoyed modest box office success and has received mixed reviews since its release. Despite being a kids movie, Nacho Libre does have something of a cult following among many adults as well. Critics have argued that the characters are one dimensional and offensive to hispanic people while fans loved the deadpan humour and the bold cinematography.

The term ‘libre’ in Spanish means free so the movie title is really ‘Free Nachos’ but it is really a play on the term “Lucha Libre”, which itself referred to the wild anything goes world of professional wrestling seen on TV (as opposed to the very strict world of collegiate wrestling).


Nacho Libre is a decent video slot. Naturally fans of the movie will love it or perhaps fans of wrestling in general. Despite coming out a number of years ago, it does have a lot of the bells and whistles you might expect from a modern video slot. The choice between free spins with a 3x multiplier, or more free spins with expanding wilds is kind of nice.

Over all the graphics, sound and design are all well done. It is a fun slot and a cool theme, which explains its popularity over the years.
