Net Entertainment’s latest title is Spiñata Grande, a slot with a decidedly Mexican theme. This slot machine has 5 reels with 40 paylines and offers additional perks like free spins and a mini-slot feature. Spiñata Grande offers players a fresh approach to slot games, incorporating large sized icons called “Colossal Symbols”, with each one taking up most of the placements over 3 reels.
The Mexican slot theme has piñatas, which are hollowed out containers made of paper-mâché, usually filled with small toys or candy. Piñatas are often seen at celebrations like birthday parties. Although they are usually associated with Mexico, piñatas came to Europe during the 14th Century.
The betting requirements for this slot begins at only £0.20 and goes up to a maximum bet of £200, but the currency for this slot machine is the usual coin structure. Players do get the option of amending the coin denomination and can use a “level slider” to adjust the bet per line.

Interface and Theme
The slot’s name indicates its theme, as Spiñata Grande is more or less a bunch of piñatas on the reels. With fully loaded slots you will see a typical Mexican village as the background with regular looking Mexicans doing their daily chores. A piñata is usually a part of a celebration, so to portray the party theme you will also see tons of balloons released up into the sky. These festive items, along with streamers, help convey the theme of the game.
The reels are designed to portray the piñata theme since the main icons are all different piñatas. There is blue fish with a big Mexican hat on, a red bull sporting a nose ring among others. There is also a typical piñata, a purple donkey with a huge grin on his face. Along with these symbols you have the usual slot icons of playing cards 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace, which all have a lower return, unlike the graphic icons.
This slot has fantastic sound effects. When the reels are not moving you can hear sounds coming from the animated image in the background. There are Mexicans walking across the screen and you can hear them whistling. You can also hear cars driving across the screen. The main music of the slot plays when the reels get spun. The sound is typical Mexican music, like a mariachi band.
The interface for users in Spiñata Grande is pretty basic, but it does have all the necessary features in that players are able to change their bet level, the coin denomination, turn on or off the autoplay, or switch it to the maximum bet mode. The last button, positioned right in the centre, is for manual play. When you press this button twice it enforces the turbo mode, cutting short the animation that plays while the reels spin.
