How to Play
The Popiñata slot uses 5 reels and 10 adjustable paying lines but we recommend that you keep them all active to make the most of the gameplay. Press the up and down arrows to choose you total bet between $0.10 and $2.50 per spin.
The game offers standard RTG options like the Speed and Autoplay buttons allowing you to speed up the spinning the reels and activate automatic spins instead of spinning the reels manually.
To create a winning combination land at least three symbols of a kind left to right or right to left consecutively along a paying line. The top paying symbol is the cactus awarding 250 coins for a five of a kind combination. Donkey Wild appears only on the reels 2, 3 and 4 to substitute for all other symbols.
Strategy & Tips
As we have already mentioned, Donkey Wild appears only on three central reels and it replaces all other symbols thus helping you complete a winning combination. As soon as it lands on one of the reels it will expand which can result in forming multiple winning combinations at once.
What's more, whenever Wild lands on the reels it grants a respin. The reels containing Wild is held while others spin once more thus providing you with an additional chance of winning for free. If you happen to land another Wild during a respin, you will get another chance with two stacks of Wilds held at their positions which increases your odds of winning. You can get up to 3 respins in a row if you are lucky enough.
RTG has made the game available for mobile play too. All its features are kept in the process of optimization so you can enjoy it to the fullest while playing on the go. The visuals look spectacular on the smaller scale screens of mobile devices whether they are smartphones or tablets, so don't hesitate to give the Popiñata slot a try wherever you are.
