Take a trip to Mexico with the online slots Popiñata released by Realtime Gaming (RTG) in April 2017 and join a real party taking place under the starry skies. As you may know, piñatas are decorations filled with various treats like candies and fruits which are to be broken with sticks. 

They are a part of Latin American festivities and Popiñata is an online video slot fully inspired by Mexican tradition. While spinning the reels of the Popiñata slot, piñatas will explode to treat you with expanding Wilds and every time you hit them, you will get rewarded with Wild re-spins. 

While playing the slot you can win both ways as the game pays left to right and vice versa. The top fixed payout stands at 250 coins.


SilverSands Casino: Get R400 Free Bonus


Play the RTG Popiñata slot game for free, right here on our website (No Download Necessary & No Deposit Needed). Increase or decrease your bet and change the number of lines. When you’re ready, hit the “Spin Button”. Enjoy!

Once you are attracted by a festive mood accompanied by a cheerful mariachi music score, you will be offered to activate up to 10 paying lines. The 5-reel slot pays best when all of them are activated, so place a 10 coin stake per spin starting from only R1 and start winning immediately. The reels are populated with theme-related symbols depicted as piñatas coming in a variety of shapes including sombreros, bottles, rockets and guitars. Whether you place identical symbols in succession left to right or right to left, you will hit wins as the online video slot pays both ways.

Players who are into free spins may be disappointed, as Popiñata does not offer Scatter or a free spins feature. The biggest star of the party is the Donkey Piñata standing for Wild which will land on the reels 2, 3 and 4 to substitute for all other symbols. Whenever Donkey Wild appears on the reels, it will expand to cover all the positions thus helping you complete multiple winning combinations at once. In addition, whenever at least one Donkey Wild appears, the Wild Re-Spin feature will be triggered during which all the reels covered with Wilds will remain at their position while other reels will spin one more time.

In terms of aesthetics, Popiñata is an online video slot which will keep you entertained due to its colourful graphics, smooth animations and an uplifting soundtrack. However, its bonus features and payouts will not impress you, as you can score only 250 coins per winning combination and there are no multipliers to increase your winnings. On the other hand, re-spins cannot compensate for the lack of free spins. The pays both ways structure comes as a silver lining, yet there are only 10 ways to create winning combinations. The game is available across all three platforms, download, instant-play and mobile, so you can try it out and tell if it is worth of playing or not. We have seen RTG slot titles offering more opportunities to win. Our rating: 82/100
