Symbols used in Havana Cubana
The highest paying symbols are all items that you may have come across in 1940s Havana: cocktails, cigars, dice, a bottle of rum, Maracas and a beautiful Cuban lady who is presumably Miss Havana. This lady also acts as a wild symbol. This one of two wilds that Havana Cubana offers. Besides these symbols there are also the regular card symbols of Jack, Queen, King and Ace, that are common in most slot games.
The Two Wilds in Havana Cubana
One of the most unique aspects of Havana Cubana is the two Wild symbols. The beautiful Cuban lady, Miss Havana, is the first Wild. She acts as a substitute for all the other symbols with the exception of the bonus symbols. This helps the player form winning combinations more easily. The second Wild is far more unusual in slot games online in Canada. It is the Directional Wild and it’s symbol is a compass. If the compass appears on the second or fourth reel then it will prompt the Directional Wilds Bonus. Once the reels stop spinning the compass will begin to spin around.
Any symbols that are facing the direction that the compass is pointing when it stops spinning will turn into the Cuban lady Wild symbol. This will help form more winning combinations and consequently more pay outs. This Directional Wilds Bonus can occur during a base game as well as during the free spins round.
Bonus Round of Free Spins
Havana Cubana has a Free Games symbol that can prompt a bonus round with free spins. In order to activate this bonus round you must hit three of the Free Games symbols.
