The exciting Mexican-inspired piñata party game, where kids use a stick to smash a colorful cardboard and paper figure stuffed with candies, makes for an unlikely but highly entertaining slot game. Spiñata Grande is a jaunty, engaging slot from NetEnt that is as fun as any party game around.

Happily, you don’t just have to take our word for it. TwinSpires Casino has made Spiñata Grande its Slot of the Week, meaning if you spend just $10 playing it, you get 20 free spins. Hurray!

How to Play Spiñata Grande

NetEnt has a fine reputation for building quirky, fun slots, and Spiñata Grande absolutely falls into that bracket. You have five reels with up to four rows. Watch out for colossal symbols that can take up 2x2 or 3x3 spaces at a time. It makes for plenty of winning opportunities across the 40 fixed paylines.

The first thing you notice when you load up the game is the Spiñata Grande is Mexican. The background is a quaint, sun-parched Mexican town with cactus plants in front of the little white buildings. Occasionally, a man in a sombrero wanders past, whistling a happy tune, while cars traverse the street behind, honking their horns.

And then there is the music; jaunty Mariachi music with trumpets and a guitar whisks you along in a foot-tapping style as you play the game.

The traditional piñata actually originated in the Far East before spreading to Europe and being used in religious festivals. It was then introduced to North America and Mexico, where it became popular as a party game. Kids would be blindfolded and hit the piñata figure with a stick. If they did so with vigor and accuracy (which is not very often), the piñata would split and spill out tasty treats.

These animal figures, made from cardboard and paper, are the main symbols in the Spiñata Grande slot game: the red bull, blue fish, smiling toucan, and the pink donkey. The lower-paying card symbols are 10, J, Q, K, and A. Play these in the usual way, hoping for three or more of the same symbol in succession on a win line – any colossal symbols can make this more likely.

The cool music and fun animations make the base game a winner, but the bonus features take things up a notch. Watch out for the Bonus symbol (an old-fashioned slot with a Mexican hat) landing in colossal form. If it does, it transforms into a mini slot machine, started by a stick smashing into it. This mini slot can contain scatter, free spin, and extra spin symbols. Land three of the free spins symbols to get five free spins, plus one extra spin for each of the extra spin symbols.

During the free spins round, you might also get a colossal wild symbol, which is the rather scary (for kids at least) skull with red rose eyes and a large red petal for a tongue. This will substitute for all other symbols except for the bonus symbols and can trigger substantial prizes.
