Lightning Box Games’ Piñata Bucks Slot Review

Join a lively Mexican fiesta in Piñata Bucks, a 5 reel, 1,296 ways to win slot from Lightning Box Games. The highlight of this colourful game is the Piñata Lock Spins round where you’ll receive 5 free spins on a new grid. You’ll also have a chance to win 1 of 4 jackpot prizes. Play on all devices from between 10p and £50 per spin.

Lightning Box Games’ Piñata Bucks SlotThe visuals in Piñata Bucks are as bold and brash as you’d expect from a slot with this Mexican street party theme. On the black reels you’ll see A to 9 royals plus bottles of tequila, lizards, cactus plants, a female dancer and a Mariachi guitarist. There’s also a wild that substitutes for all the standard symbols.

You’ll notice that Piñata Bucks uses Lightning Box Games’ Reelfecta game engine. The middle reel is a 4x4 block which effectively gives 16 symbol positions on reel 3. Land 6 or more of the rainbow paper donkey aka the Piñata and you’ll trigger the game’s Free Spins feature.

In the Free Spins feature, you’ll receive Piñata Lock Spins which are played out on a new 4x4 grid. Any blue Piñata symbols that land during this round, lock in position. If locked Piñata symbols form a square, they combine to create a larger Piñata. Once all your free spins are up, the Piñata is smashed to reveal cash prizes.

You can win jackpot prizes during the Free Spins feature too if you manage to land Piñata that are 2x2 squares or bigger. A 4x4 Piñata can deliver jackpots of 500 times your stake.

Even accounting for the Reelfecta, Piñata Bucks is a straightforward game. It can be a pretty fiery one though. It’s not as hot as the spiciest chilli but it’s got enough bite on the variance front to keep things interesting. There’s a whopping 109,750 times your stake to be won from each spin though!

The design here is typical of a Lightning Box Games slot. There’s a glossy look to the visuals and there’s a bouncy mariachi-style backing track playing in the background as you spin. We’ve seen flashier slots that Piñata Bucks both in terms of design and gameplay. If you like the Reelfecta game engine, then this Mexican party is one to consider. If you want a taste of Mexico though, ELK Studios’ Taco Brothers would be my pick.
