When I set out to write a Spinata Grande slot review, in did so with a heavy heart; 'Another mariachi band soundtrack and another bunch of cartoon Mexicans in big sombreros' were my thoughts, and I wasn't so far from the truth.
I found the Spinata Grande slot at guts.com, but this Netent game is sure to be available at many other sites, so check out your favourites to see if it appears.
The theme is predictable enough, with the main symbols taking the form of piñata (the paper mache figures that are filled with sweets and treats at fiestas and parties).
The Spinata Grande slot has a couple of tricks up its frilly sleeves though, with some truly huge symbols that cover four (2x2) or nine (3x3) spaces on the reels, and it's these that turn what could have been a fairly predictable slot game into something a bit more intriguing. Snagging all or even part of a three by three symbol on the left hand side of the screen will give you a win, and with luck and a following wind can result in some really big payouts.
On top of the 'colossal' symbols, there's also a feature that is a sort of slot within a slot, so if you manage to turn up a big square symbol that looks like a fruit machine wearing a sombrero ( I know...I know) then you have a chance at either a win or some free spins depending on whether you turn up three or more stars or...well...it's a bit complicated. You really need to try it for yourself.
And there's the problem really: it's a pretty complicated game for a slot, with some outstanding features, but it's all a bit fussy for my liking, and I should point out that the wild symbol (another 'colossal' square) only shows up when you are using free spins, so nothing in normal gameplay to ease your path to riches.
My overall impression is of a game that on the surface looks like many others, but has some neat features. A little too gimmicky for my liking, and a bit mean on the smaller payouts, though this is offset by some pretty good wins if you're lucky enough, or maybe patient enough, to get them. A good effort by the team at Netent, but I don't think I'm going to be rushing back to play it again any time soon.
