Players could be in for some big wins when they join the fiesta in Pragmatic Play partner Wild Streak Gaming‘s latest online slot, Big Juan, where a lively soundtrack, eye-catching animations and winning potential of 2,600x the bet “provide a real feast for the senses!”,
It is the second Mexican-inspired game released by Pragmatic within a month, following its Day of the Dead hit launched on October 21st, and provides players with plenty of excitement thanks to wilds, extra spins, bonus rounds and more.
This highly volatile, 5-reel, 4-row video slot finds our leading character Big Juan on the left side of the screen. From there he overlooks the reels that are filled with colorful symbols, including five low pay 10-A card suits and the higher paying guitar, piñata, sombrero-wearing chihuahua, bottle of hot sauce, pretty señorita and, of course, Big Juan.
Players can form winning combinations by landing three or more of the same symbol from the left of the game grid while earning 2.5 to 7.25 the stake for five-of-a-kind premium combinations. Landing anywhere, the chili symbol serves as the game’s Wild and is worth twice as much as the top high pay symbol and can substitute for all other pay symbols.
Wild Switch & Respins Bonus:
One of two features in the game, the unique Wild Switch does its thing during base game play whenever at least six matching symbols land on reels 2, 3, or 4. When that happens, all symbols involved are transformed into chili wild symbols, boosting wins.
The other feature you’ll want to keep an eye out for is the Respins Bonus, which is activated by landing 3, 4, or 5 piñata scatter symbols. The feature is played on a 3×3 sized grid, where players are provided with 10 to 15 respins along with a Bag of Coins symbol that sits in the middle of the reels. Players can win coin symbols, extra win symbols, or one of four – Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand – fixed jackpots, awarding up to 2500x the total stake.
