The Jackpot Pinata slot by RealTime Gaming is one based around the Mexican tradition of children breaking a decorated container to reveal toys, sweets and treats. This slot however has one particular treat that people of all ages will enjoy – a Jackpot of over a million dollars. The slot also features an original bonus round in the ‘Pinata’ feature.
In this review I start by looking at the basics of this slot, detailing the number of lines and how you’ll win when playing. I then move on to look at how the Pinata feature is activated and what you can win. Next up I detail the progressive Jackpot – the amount you can win and how you’ll actually win it. I finish up with an overview of this potentially life changing slot.
Jackpot Pinatas Slot – The Basics
The Jackpot Pinata slot is a 5 reel slot with 3 symbols on show for each reel – much like the majority of other online slots out there. The slot has 20 win lines and each line will cost you $0.25, meaning that each spin will cost you exactly $5. Neither the number of lines nor the amount per line is changeable, but this is understandable with such a large Jackpot prize, giving everyone an equal chance of winning the big one.
To win at this slot you have to land consecutive symbols from left to right. The number of symbols you’ll need varies, although if gaining at least three in a row you’ll be guaranteed a prize for any symbol (some symbols will pay out for landing just two – the Donkey Pinata will gain you a win if it lands on just the first reel).
Of the standard (non-wild or scatter) symbols, the lady with a rose in her hair is the best one to land, 5 of these in a row paying out 3,000 coins. The rose and the rockets are next best and will pay out 1,500 coins for landing 5. Other symbols in the game include the sombrero, the Maracas and a Taco Shell.
The ‘Donkey Pinata’ is the wild symbol in the game and will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the scatter symbol and the ‘Bull Pinata’.
Jackpot Pinatas Slot – Features
The game has 2 distinct features.
Firstly, there is the Pinata feature. This is activated when the ‘Dog Pinata’ symbol appears 3 times across any of the five reels. Having landed three of the symbols you’ll choose 2 of the 3 and reveal a prize of up to 200 times the initial bet size. Should you reveal a rose when choosing one of the two symbols, you’ll repeat this bonus round – in fact you’ll continue to repeat the round until you fail to find a rose. Not only this, but at the end of this feature you’ll also be awarded 5, 10, 15 or 25 free spins! These free spins will see any winning amounts doubled, but will also see more wilds added to the game, as well as extra ‘Bull Pinatas’ – meaning more chances to win the Jackpot!
The second feature of the game is the Jackpot itself. This Jackpot amount has a minimum value of $1 million, but regularly goes much higher. The Jackpot is won by landing the ‘Bull Pinata’ 5 times in a row on a win line. The Bull Pinata symbol will pay 25x, 250x and 2,500x if landing 2, 3 or 4 in a row, but having landed the 4th, the large win you’ve already gained will be swamped if that wonderful 5th symbol should land on the win line!
Jackpot Pinatas Slot – Overview
The Jackpot Pinata slot is a highly enjoyable slot to play even without the progressive Jackpot. It is somewhat unusual to find a bonus feature where you’ll gain instant wins with free spins added at the end, so this gives the game some originality and will keep you playing until you land the feature. Of course, the progressive Jackpot also gives this game a huge boost – winning this amount of money will change your life forever, so this is reason to play enough by itself. At $5 a spin, yes this can add up – but you’ve got to be in it to win it.
