- Fiesta-themed fun at Cinco de Mayo ideal place to launch piñata slot
- Mexico and mystery come together for Konami title
Konami Gaming, Inc.’s colorful new slot endeavor, Smash Smash Festival, has been an instant hit at its world premiere event at the Cinco de Mayo annual celebration.
Enjoyed by hundreds of people at the event, live performances by mariachis suitably spiced up the game’s explosive arrival onto the already thriving casino market.
Announced by the slot machines giant at San Manuel Bingo & Casino, San Bernadino, the launch of Smash Smash Festival promises players a unique, fiesta-themed experience.
Game is well received
“We here at San Manuel offer an exciting gaming and entertainment experience to our guests every day,” says Loren Gill, general manager at San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino.
Kitted out with six jackpot levels, random credit prizes, mystery piñata prizes, and a winner-takes-all jackpot pool, Smash Smash Festival attempts to offer exciting gameplay to players.
Gill adds: “One of our latest additions is the Smash Smash Festival that debuted on Cinco de Mayo and we are thrilled to be the first casino to unveil this game as part of our already expansive gaming options.”
A smashing array of options
Smash Smash Festival randomly offers the player the chance to choose one of two mystery piñata prizes with any spin. Once chosen, the piñata explodes to expose the player’s prize amount. The prize associated with the piñata the player chose not to select remains unknown, and its amount becomes added to a pool comprised of all the other unselected mystery piñatas.
As these accumulate, the game will apply the Smash Time bonus. This means that the player will be given the opportunity to redeem the amassed piñatas that, until now, have been safely stored away in the prize pool.
Steve Walther, senior director, marketing and production management at Konami Gaming, Inc., says, “Every player aims for the Smash Time bonus to claim those mystery piñata prizes. When it hits, it’s a big explosion of coins and confetti – in true fiesta fashion.”
“Not only does every player have a chance to win mystery piñata credit prizes, there’s also a $5,000 gold jackpot that provides even greater excitement,” adds Walther.
Although Konami Gaming, Inc. already has a large selection of casino games, the color, vibrancy, and sheer excitement of Smash Smash Festival will set it apart from the company’s current repertoire.
