Colorful Piñatas Have a Rich Tradition in Mexico and in Intertops Casino Slots

Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe Features Big Wins Flowing from Many Colorful Pinatas

If there is one pinata, it’s party time.  So, if there are five pinatas, it must be super-party time at Intertops, your favorite online casino!  That’s what you get when you enter the world of multiple pinatas in the new slots game, Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe, here at Intertops Casino.

Catch a Falling Star Pinata

Actually, the reels catch this “falling star”.  The Star Pinata is the wild symbol.  It substitutes for all of the symbols that aren’t also pinatas which means the Royal Symbols, the burrito (or is it a taco?), the Mariachi Band guitar, and the maracas.

Each of the pinatas has a special feature in its own right!

In addition to being special in their own way, the graphics for each pinata makes them super-attractive!

Put on Your Sombrero to Play the Pick Bonus Feature

When the Sombrero Pinata lands on reels 2, 3, and 4, you enter the Pick Bonus Feature.  You will see three symbols under which cash awards are hidden.  You pick two of the three symbols and get the award revealed under them which can reach 200x your bet.

If one of the symbols you choose is the Bonus Round Symbol, it retriggers the Pick Bonus Feature.  Imagine retriggering this feature several times and collecting all those prizes!

Free Spins Feature

This feature follows the Pick Bonus Feature.  You see, when the Pick Bonus Feature ends, the game automatically awards you free spins! You will get 5, 10, 15, or 20 free spins.  There is also a 2x multiplier in the free spins round that covers all wins except the progressive jackpot which you can win on any spin!

The Progressive Jackpot

This big win starts at $250,000 and continues to grow until someone wins it by getting three Dog Pinatas on a winning payline!  Then it starts all over again!

While the progressive jackpot may grow far above the starting point, the top win in a non-progressive win is still very high at 40,000x the bet you made!

Graphics, Animation, and Sound

The graphics for each of the pinatas are excellent!  In addition, all modern video slots have animation that makes winning spins even more fun!  Finally, the background music in Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe is a rip roaring Mariachi Band.

It pays to learn a little about the history of both pinatas and Mariachi Bands!

Pinatas Got Their Start in…….China!

Most people think that pinatas are native to Mexican culture but they actually started way back many centuries ago in China where they were clay pots that people broke to receive the gifts hidden within!

Imagine all these broken clay pots yet to be excavated by Chinese archaeologists!

Marco Polo brought the idea of the pinata back to Italy when he returned there from his sojourn in China about 700 years ago.  From Italy, the concept travelled to Spain and from Spain it was just a hop, leap, and jump (and ocean voyage) to bring the pinata to Mexico where it has since flourished as a primary feature of many parties, especially birthday parties.

Modern pinatas are made of papier mache so kids can break them easily to get at all the candy and other gifts piled high inside!

Mariachi Bands Play at Mexican Plazas Every Night

Most people think that the Mariachi Band tradition must have started in one of Mexico’s big cities especially Mexico City.  In fact, the Mariachi Band first appeared in the early 18th century in rural Mexico in the country’s west-central region.

The true origin of the word mariachi has been lost since the Native Mexican language of the Coco Indians from which the word is thought to have come is no longer spoken.

Three stringed instruments made up the original Mariachi bands.  These are the vihuela, the guitarron bass guitar, and a standard six-stringed acoustic guitar.  So the stringed instrument in Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe may be any one of these!

In the subsequent centuries, violins and trumpets were added to play the melody.  Some Mariachi Bands may not have a violin but trumpets have by now become de rigueur for Mariachi Music!  In Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe, the trumpets come through loud and clear!

Early Mariachi musicians wore the clothing of the local peasantry but now all Mariachi musicians wear heavily ornamented uniforms that are said to be the standard garb of cowboys from Jalisco!  That does seem a bit odd given how dirty cowboys get!

Tourists in Mexico love to go to the many plazas that dot the larger cities and listen to the Mariachi Bands play long into the night.
