Torrente Slot Machine
If you’re a fan of classic Spanish cinema, Playtech might have created the ideal slot machine for you with Torrente. The game is based on the 1988 comedy crime flick of the same name.
In terms of specifics, Torrente is played on a five by three game board and players must match symbols along win lines. There is a maximum of 25 of these available and players can opt to play as many or as few as they like. The game also offers a couple of special features – a free spin mode with a multiplier and a “pick-a-box”-style instant cash prize round. We’ll cover these in more detail below, however.

- Juicy main game prizes. The prospect of hitting 5,000x the line bet is surely something to get excited about!
- Miniscule upper betting limit. Some Playtech machines let players wage as much as £2,500 per spin. This makes the £25 upper betting limit on Torrente feel like a mistake!
- Obscure theme. Unless you’re up on your Spanish cinema, you might be like us and have no clue what Torrente even is!
- Standard bonus features. Playtech have wheeled out their most basic offerings to enhance the gameplay on Torrente. They might be reasonably lucrative but they’re not creative at all!
The top jackpots on the Torrente slot machine are each awarded for matching five of the same character symbols along one of the active win lines. As usual, we’ve listed the prizes for each of these winning combinations below:
- Orange Man = 5,000x the line bet.
- Red Woman = 1,000x the line bet.
- Purple or Green Man = 500x the line bet.
- Bonus = 100x the line bet.
The game’s “wild” symbol is rather cheeky in that it is represented by a bikini-clad bottom. This symbol will substitute for all other symbols on the game, except the “Bonus”. “Wild” symbols appearing on reels two, three, and four at the same time will trigger the Hotel Paradise Free Games.

The Free Games mode on Torrente comes equipped with a juicy 3x multiplier on all winnings except those awarded during the bonus game detailed below.
Players should note that these Free Games can be retriggered, and the Operacion Eurovegas Bonus can be triggered at any point during the Free Games feature.

Landing three or more “Bonus” symbols at the same time anywhere on the reels will trigger the Operacion Eurovegas Bonus stage.
This bonus comprises of two levels. The first requires players to play a “Wheel-of-Fortune”-style game. The wheel has different sized multipliers around it.
The second level of the bonus asks players to select four out of six items for Torrente to snatch. These are locked in the vaults presented to the player. Each contains a different cash prize or the “collect” symbol. Players can continue to select until they uncover the “collect”. This ends the bonus feature and all prizes are added up and awarded to the player.
In addition to the higher value character symbols on Torrente, there are also those that award lesser prizes. As is common on online video slots these days, these lower value symbols have been taken from the upper end of a standard deck of playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10, 9).
As usual, we’ve listed the prizes for each of these five-of-a-kind winning combinations below:
- Ace or King = 200x the line bet.
- Queen or Jack = 150x the line bet.
- Nine or Ten = 100x the line bet.
Players are given a large degree of control over how they can spread their bets out on the Torrente slot machine. They can adjust the number of win lines played (between one and 25), as well as the amount bet on each one. The minimum here is just 1p and the maximum is an incredibly underwhelming £1.
This means that when all the values are set to their minimum, the lowest possible bet per spin is just 1p. Meanwhile, the largest is £25. Evidently, Torrente was not built for the highest rollers around.
To conclude, the Torrente slot machine has some great selling points, but it is also let down by certain aspects. The best thing about it is certainly the lucrative top jackpot figures. If you were betting the maximum of £25 per spin and dropped the game’s very largest pay out, you’d be looking at a prize of £125,000!
Although this top prize is certainly generous, the game’s lack of innovative bonus features, coupled with the low upper betting limit really make Torrente tough to love. Perhaps fans of the original movie will love it but everyone else will have no trouble finding a much more entertaining title elsewhere.
