Popiñata Slot Game

Popiñata is fairly new to the online casino community, being launched just on April 2017 across many well known online casinos with an RTP of 96.3%, which is average and recommended to play with a 50/50 chance of leaving richer than you arrive. This is an RTG (Real Time Gaming) release, which follows their basic value features like free spins, auto play, multiplier and something new to most of their games, an expanding Wild. No progressive jackpot on this one, and the fixed coin jackpot has certain conditions to be won.

RTG has stretched out recently in their game design introductions, it was not so long ago they stuck to the 90´s looking 2D slots with no story line behind it (Popiñata has no story line either). Their style is to stick to symbolic icons around a central theme; few of their games have actual characters which makes them a little boring to play after a while, and reviews.

Popiñata is a 3D Mexican themed online slot with 10 pay lines and 5 reels. The Mexican theme goes even deeper into "fiesta" style, with a loud and fast background music that incites the player to play faster and harder. It is proven that strong fast music makes a person take more reckless decisions vs those listening to smooth slow music like classical music. Ever thought why there is not a Mozart online slot? So if you play Popiñata and are not in the mood for some tequila driven gaming, I suggest cutting the volume and using your headphones for music, works wonders.


The reel is decorated with flashlight cactus plants down on a star desert sky.

Cactus Plant - High paying symbol.

Tacos - Medium paying symbol.

Sombrero - Medium paying symbol.

Donkey Piñata, Wild - High paying symbol. This is also the Wild and will explode into a fiesta when a winning combo is hit. A Wild is like a joker, it will replace any other symbol in the reel except the scatter.

Beer - Low paying symbol.

Jalapeño - Medium paying symbol.

Fireworks - High paying symbol.

Champagne - Medium paying symbol.

Guitar - Medium paying symbol.


Coin sizes are $0.01 to $0.10, which makes Popiñata an authentic penny slot perfect for low rollers and beginners. With penny slot a player can bet all pay lines available without fear of running out of money, this ensures they can play all the way until the bonus round. The bonus round could take a while to hit, this is why we recommend using the auto play feature.

The cacti are the highest paying symbol with a multiplier of 250x if you land 5.

Max bets of 2.50 per spin can activate the 625 coin jackpot. This is not usual with RTG, they usually offer a progressive jackpot that can hit at any time regardless of how much you bet or combo specifics. Which is one of the reasons that makes RTG a interesting developer despite the fact their creativity sucks, they pay more than others. For Popiñata the jackpot seems a bit more unreachable than in most of their games, but it still has a strong bonus payout and huge combos.

Get the whole line of chili symbols and win a 120x multiplier.

Any other full combo of symbols will payout between 25x and 60x. So there is good value on this slot reel even if take the jackpot or bonus game out of the equation. Seems to be a great slot to activate the auto spin feature and just lay back to see a few large combos trigger to come out a winner.

Bonus Game

With more than 3 Wilds, the Donkey Piñata, will activate the bonus round. This consists on a free spin bonus round with expanded reels on 2, 3 and 4. If you can cover the entire reel with Wilds then you earn extra re-spins. Loads of cash prizes can be won in additions to the free spins.
