Whats not so hot?
If RealTime Gaming’s Popinata 3D video slot doesn’t get you into a party mood believe me nothing will.
The slots has 10 paylines, 5 reels and central to it is its wild re-spin feature. It’s a Mexican themed slots with high-end visuals reminiscent of a cartoon movie. The game is available for play on desktops and mobile devices be it for free or for real cash.
”Mexico’s vibrant culture can now be seen at all RealTime Gaming online casinos. The game developer captured the very essence of a fiesta in its new slot, Popiñata.”
On each side of your screen you’ll see cactus plants holding flashing lights which accentuates the theme of the slots even further. Paying symbols that appear on the reels are tacos, sombrero, a donkey piñata, beer, jalapeño and fireworks. Against the background of the reels you’ll see the night sky laced with stars.
Throughout the game you’ll hear Mexican fiesta music playing. Popiñata slots offers a theoretical return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.3%. The most important symbol in the game is the donkey (wild) it expands to cover the entire reel boosting payline wins. What I like about the donkey symbol is when it completes a winning combo it explodes leaving the entire wild reel covered with confetti.
The coins size is $0.01 up to $0.10 which enables players with different sized bankrolls to play it. You can also decide how many paylines you’d like to play with, we recommend that you play with all paylines activated. If you’re busy with something else an ”Auto Play” feature spins the reels for a selected number of times for you automatically.
Piñatas are colorful papier-mâché creations, animals filled with small prizes and sweet treats. Blindfolded, the idea is to swing a bat or stick through the air hoping to make contact with the piñata breaking it open to spill the contents.”
The wild icon is the donkey piñata when it completes a winning combination it expands to cover the entire reel but it only pitches on reels 2, 3 and 4 awarding you a re-spin. When the expanding wild donkey keeps on popping up it offers re-spins where loads of cash prizes can be won.
Popiñata is a highly entertaining slots that captures the very essence of Mexican culture and I might add brings a festive atmosphere to the reels unlike I’ve ever seen before.
The audio, animations and game mechanic could best be described as top draw. Features I like are the exploding piñata animation, along with the re-spins and expanding wild. Kudos to RealTime Gaming for coming up with such an ingenious concept, the slots definitely merits a couple of real money spins.
