There’s nothing quite like fight night at Mexico. This long-standing venue in Central Mexico City is the place to see one of the country’s most raucous and dramatic sporting events, Lucha Libre.
In Spanish, it means literally freestyle wrestling, and this is Mexico’s version of professional wrestling, eclipsed in popularity by soccer. The wearing of the masks has developed special significance and made this pop-culture phenomenon unique.
Lucha Libre origins date back to 1863 when Mexican wrestler, Enrique Ugartechea, first developed the art of “free-style” wrestling based on Greco-Roman traditions. In 1933 Salvador Lutteroth Gonzalez, “the father of Lucha Libre“ established the Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre. All the rest is history.
A typical match involves the “good guys”, battling it out against the “bad guys”, with an incredible array of dropkicks, backflips and leg locks. At the end of the fight, the loser must remove their mask and thereby reveal their identity.

Lucha Libre 2
Three years after the original title was released, RTG has come up with the sequel “Lucha Libre 2”. This slot takes you to the arena with Taco Malo once again and has vibrant graphics and cartoonish animations. The new competitor of famous Mexican wrestler is Nacho Friend and both of them are substitute symbols. Wrestlers are grouped Wilds on reel 3 during normal games and count for all symbols except scatters. When a Wrestler covers the reel they will either multiple prizes that include a Wild or jump onto at least one more reel. Prizes with a Wild may be multiplied by 2, 3 or 10. Scatters are paid before the wrestler jumps.
In this sequel, you can also choose from three hilarious new finishing moves to try and win the final fight against Nacho Friend. Success in the ring improves the feature bonuses, with increased prize multipliers and potent Fist of Fury spins up for grabs.
