Set up the tequilas, wax your mustache, and get ready for a party with Mexican flair you’ll never forget. We could have gone with such an intro to hype this thing, but we prefer to be honest. Hot Fiesta offers a fun looking and loud facade, but when you try it, it falls apart like the hollow plastic piñata it really is.
It’s a run-of-the-mill shelf filler version if we’ve ever seen one, and Pragmatic Play probably took 10 seconds to figure it all out. You get multiplier wilds up to 5x in the base game, and all wilds are multiplier roaming wilds during the bonus round. We wouldn’t dance on the table, and you’ll probably need more than a few drinks to have a good time here.
Hot Fiesta Slot Bonus Features
It’s probably a good idea to decide in advance whether you want to activate the Ante Bet feature or not. It increases the price per spin by 40%, but this doubles your chances of triggering the bonus round.
The purple piñata wild can land on all 5 reels and substitute for all regular payout symbols, as wilds usually do. Wilds can land with multiplier values of 2x, 3x and 5x, boosting any winning combination they are part of. If more than 1 multiplier wild is part of the same winning combination, the respective multiplier values are added.
The fireworks scatter must land on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger the bonus round. You will get an initial scatter win of 3x your bet, and then you will see a grid of 9 piñatas exploding one after another. Each exploding piñata reveals a number and they are all added to your total free spins amount between 9 and 27.
During the free spins feature, any wilds you land become roaming wilds for the duration of the bonus round. Each wild comes with a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x and they randomly move to new positions per spin . You can’t land any scatters during the free spins round, so the feature can’t be retriggered.
The 200 Spins Hot Fiesta Slot Experience
The multiplier wilds earned us some decent payouts in the base game, before triggering the bonus round at 1:15 in the 3-minute highlight video. The 9 exploding piñatas gave us a total of 15 free spins, and you can see how it all played out in the video below.
Hot Fiesta resembles a lot of the modern pop music that is produced every day. It may be catchy and appealing at first, but the lack of any real depth or soul soon makes it fall into oblivion. The fiesta theme is full of Mexican clichés, and the game comes across as one of those manic party people desperately trying to maintain a cheerful facade.
It’s not really a party, we’d like an invitation too, but each to their own. As for the gameplay, you occasionally get a multiplier wild win to stay afloat during the base game. You need to have at least 2 or 3 roaming wilds pretty early on to make the bonus round interesting, but there are plenty of “hotter” Mexican-style parties to join in the world of online slots.
