Players may place bets ranging from $0.01 up to $0.10 per coin size and a number of coins per spin per reel, choosing how many reels they want to place bets on.
The donkey is the wild symbol in this game and he only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. When he does appear on any of these reels he expands to cover the whole reel and the re-spin feature is activated. During the special re-spin feature, the reels holding the donkey are held in place and all the other reels are re-spun a number of times. This is the main feature of the game and what makes it not only fun but also rewarding to play with the background music of the Mexican guitars and the colorful symbols that grace the reels.
