Game of the Week – Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe
You haven’t partied until you’ve experienced a Mexican fiesta. Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe brings the fun of the fiesta to your home while giving you a chance to score some outstanding prizes. Learn more about what you can win in the progressive jackpot slot game.
Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe Brings a Fiesta to Your Home
Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe is the latest 5-Reel, 20 payline slot game from Real Time Gaming. It features a fun Mexican fiesta theme complete with festive music and festive pay symbols. Pay symbols include Royals, maracas, tacos, and mandolins.
The Mexican-themed star acts as the wild, substituting for everything except the scatter and special symbols. It also pays whenever it lands, regardless of whether it creates a winning payline. Like most multi-line games, you need to hit multi-line winners to turn a profit on most spins. However, there is an awesome Bonus and Free Spins feature that will help you score massive wins.
Pick Bonus Feature
The sombrero is the scatter for this game. Get three or more on the board and you will trigger the Pick Bonus feature. At the start of the feature, you will need to pick from three sombreros. You’ll pick twice to reveal prizes of up to 200x your triggering bet.
Additional Bonus Rounds can be won if a Bonus Round symbol is selected. The pick feature continues until you fail to reveal a Bonus Round symbol. At the end of the Pick Bonus game, you will receive from 5 to 25 free spins.
During the free games feature, all winnings are doubled with the exception of Special Symbol and Jackpot winnings. The Pick Bonus feature can be triggered during the free spins feature.
I was able to trigger this once for 10 free spins. During those free spins, I was able to re-trigger the Pick Bonus feature and got lucky with 25 additional free spins. By the time I finished this feature, I won about 147x my initial bet, which was fantastic.
The Pinata is the special symbol for this game. It pays on two or more on a payline. If you land five pinatas on a payline, you will trigger the progressive jackpot. This jackpot is a local progressive and it appears to be a bit on the smallish side. When testing, the progressive was around $5k.
One thing about this jackpot is that you can trigger it on 5 of a kind pinatas. While not the easiest goal to accomplish, it is better than the “random” nature of some progressive jackpot slots. The jackpot isn’t anywhere near the biggest we’ve seen, but it should hit a little more frequently than other higher-value progressive jackpots.
Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe Pays Handsomely For the Patient
Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe is one of those games that requires a bit of patience to experience the best payouts. If you’re someone that likes to play for a few spins and drop out if you aren’t winning, you probably will not enjoy this game. This slot game has medium to high variance and requires a bit of an investment in time and money to potentially turn a profit.
If you aren’t willing to play until you get to the bonus game, you probably won’t make money on this game. Those who are patient can win big with the Bonus game and free spins game. While Real Time Gaming doesn’t publish the RTP of its games, we estimate this game to be somewhere around 95.5%.
