Review: New Reelfecta online slots game, Pinata Bucks.
As a child, there’s nothing more exciting than
smacking a pinata with a big stick, in hopeful anticipation that the
next blow will produce a hole big enough to spew forth the delicious
candy from within. As an adult, the candy may or may not seem as
appealing, but tension levels rise high, so much that whacking
anything with a big stick would be a great source of stress
My suggestion – get yourself a pinata for
your next birthday! No reason we can’t enjoy ourselves just because
we’re all grown up! Or, you could play the new Pinata Bucks
mobile slot from Lightning Box Games. It’s a virtual
game, so there’s no swinging of big sticks, but the candy has been
replaced with real money, and there’s 1,296 ways to win it.
Peter Causley, CEO of Lightning Box, had this
“We’re delighted to release Pinata Bucks, the newest Reelfecta title in the Lightning Box portfolio. With a fun theme, engaging graphics, and huge win potential, Pinata Bucks could be an explosive adventure for players.”
Pinata Bucks – Reelfecta Online Slots
Pinata Bucks isn’t your traditional online slot
machine. It spans 8 reels across, running 3 down on the farthest two
reels at each end, and expanding to 4 high on the central 4 reels
(3-3-4-4-4-4-3-3). That center 4×4 section acts as one symbol
position all its own; a feature Lightning Box has patented under the
If any single symbol that lands in that 4×4
section matches up with symbols from the left to create a winning
combination across, it initiates a win. Each of the 16 symbols in the
Reelfecta can be used only once per winning combination. It makes for
a unique design, and increases the payout potential to 1,296 ways to
Symbolically, the mariachi, dancer, lizard and
bottle of tequila are the highest paying symbols, with A, K, Q, J and
9 on the lower side. The desert sunset is the wild, and the pony
pinata the scatter. Wilds substitute for all standard symbols to
assist in paying out the highest possible win.
Pinata Lock Spins Bonus Feature
The pinata scatter is responsible for
triggering the game’s special feature, the Pinata Lock Spins Bonus.
When 6 or more bonus symbols appear anywhere on the reels, 6 Lock
Spins are awarded. Lock Spins are free spins that take place on the
Reelfecta. The central 4×4 grid of reels enlarge to cover the screen
before the spins take place.
During the feature, all pinata bonus symbols
that appear will lock into place. Any pinatas that combine into a
square of 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4 size will lock and transform into one
larger pinata covering that larger position. When the 5 free spins
are over, all pinatas on the screen are busted open to reveal a
random prize. All pinatas are capable of awarding a bet multiplier,
but the bigger ones can also award a jackpot prize. The bigger the
pinata, the bigger the prize will be.
Pinata squares of 2×2 can award up to 25x bet,
or the mini or minor jackpot. Squares of 3×3 can award 25-50x the
bet, or the minor or major jackpot. And squares of 4×4 can award
50-500x the bet, or the major or grand jackpot.
Pinata Bucks mobile slot is the third edition
in Lightning Box’s growing collection of Reelfecta online slot
machines, following last year’s release of Druidess Gold
and Astro Cat slots. All three are available for free
or real money play at every online casino that licenses the Lightning
Box brand of digital gambling software.
