Not many people know that La Bamba is a Mexican folk song from the state of Veracruz; the song is best known from a 1958 adaptation by Ritchie Valens, a Chicano early rock 'n' roll star.

Valens' version of La Bamba is a combination of the traditional tune and an authentic rock drive, and no one can deny, it’s an all-time rock classic! Inspired by the young, rebellious spirit of Ritchie Valens, Real Time Gaming gave us a fun, tune-driven slot with a striking free games feature and engaging elements such as multipliers, expanding Wilds and symbol substitutions. As you spin the reels of Richie Valens La Bamba, it will be really difficult not to groove to the familiar beat; the gorgeously designed video slot will put on quite a show for you!



Spin the La Bamba Record to Win


Real Time Gaming’s new release is sleek and sly in every aspect. The graphics are vibrant, just like the tunes! Best believe that all the grease in Richie’s hair matches the shiny appearance of theme-related items such as autograph books, retro radio and TV sets, shoes, guitars, signed photos and concert tickets, as well as ‘Richie Valens Number One Fan’ pins. Richie was a real celebrity back in the 50s; hopefully, his legacy will be revisited by a new generation of records and reel spinners ,thanks to Ritchie Valens La Bamba video slot.

The game benefits from 6 reels of symbols and payouts that are formed on adjacent reels from both left to right and right to left. It’s an all-ways-pays video slot machine that offers 729 possible winning combinations. But, of course, there’s more! The Richie Valens symbol acts as Wild, substituting all base game symbols – and the Scatter! How about that! The Scatter is represented by a spinning La Bamba record, the Wild appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and expands to cover entire reels. When Richie appears in a wining combo, the win doubles.

You need 4 Scatters to trigger the main free games feature. Up to 20 free games are awarded to the lucky player who activates the round, with the possibility of introducing 1x, 2x and 3x multipliers, expanding Richie Wilds on reels 1 through 6 and retriggering the bonus with 20 more free spins. Make sure to experience these lucrative slot features on both mobile and desktop Thunderbolt platforms!
