Let the smashing begin! We haven’t had this much fun playing since our candy filled birthdays, but the Spinata Grande mobile slot brought us straight back to a child-like glee.
We’re always unsure about giving any mobile phone slot reviews 5 stars. Everyone’s playing taste is so different, it’s always good to remove a star just to give us that margin of error.
But damn it, we had a glorious time playing on the NetEnt Spinata Grande slot machine. At one point, we had a streak of free spins and colossal symbols that brought us up 200% from our starting budget.
We then went ahead and spent it all, before suddenly getting a screen full of symbols, winning it all back with a 200 times our bet win.
We then walked away smiling. And still do each time we play, win or lose.
The base game itself doesn’t get much in terms of ‘ambiance’, until you get a big win and the trumpets come out.
But this is the first of the NetEntertainment slots to come in a 5×4 reel format and gives you 40 paylines, so you know they’ve thought out how to best make it fit on your iPad, Android tablet, or smartphone.
The Spinata Grande video slot hits frequently enough that you’ll rarely be bored with the action on the screen. Granted most of the wins will be maybe only 3 or 4 times your bet, but at least most cover your starting bet enough to keep you playing for far longer than expected.
You know what we love most about a good slot game? The feeling that at any point, any time, you could win big.
Now granted, the max win here is only 600 times your bet. But you’ll be amazed how getting a series of those big 2×2 or 3×3 symbols in a row, each giving you 50 times to 100 times your bet, can easily escalade into a shower of gold candy.
After the disappointment that was the Steam Tower slot, this is a breath of fresh Mexican air.
Still, there’s no doubt that the free spins is where it’s easier to get those dramatic wins as you get 3×3 wild symbols all over the five reels.
That said, you’ll usually trigger these in less than 50 spins, so how much you win here can be anything from 10 times your bet to 600 times your bet.
The most we’ve hit ourselves is 165 times, but we can easily see how more could be triggered.
And that’s one of the reasons we loved the Spinata Grande Touch slot. Those colossal symbols bring an air of excitement every time they show up.
It rarely bores, and when it decides to rain candy, it pours.

Colossal Symbols: In the main slot game all the symbols can also appear as 'colossal'. That is to say, taking up a block of 2x2 or 3x3 symbols.
Which is just a nice way to say partly stacked across several reels. Used to great dramatic effect.
In free spins, the only colossal symbols are the colossal bonus, the colossal wild and the high paying animal pinatas symbols (so not the Ace to 10 symbols basically).
Colossal Bonus Symbol: This is a 3x3 symbol that is... a mobile slot machine wearing a sombrero and a moustache.
Because if you're going to bring reality into a mobile/tablet slot, you might as well head home right now.
Whenever any part of this symbol appears on the reels (whether it's the full thing, or just three symbols along), a massive bat will show up to smash it and spin those symbols into mini reels.
You'll either get coins (instant cash) or free spins symbols or both.
The Free Spins: If you get 3 scatter free spins symbols on the mini-slot bonus feature above, you'll get 5 free spins. Any more extra scatters will give you one more free spin to the mix.
That means you can get 11 free spins at the most.
Usually you get 5 or 6, though we've gotten 7 to 9 often enough to know they are there.
The reason why the free spins are awesome (other than they are easier to trigger than taking candy from a child) is that you get colossal wild symbols.
That's a 3x3 block of wilds, which substitutes for all other symbols.
Spinata Grande mobile slot is the kind of game we'd recommend anyone who ask us why slots are fun to play.
These huge reels, with constant wins keeping you hooked and an unusual free spins feature triggering easily, brings a real thrill of excitement with each spin.
Add that when it decides to warm up it can lead to a whole chain reaction of wins, and you'll wonder why you need to play any other slot.
We haven't had this much fun since playing the NetEnt Gonzo's Quest game.
Review by Lucky Mobile Slots, last updated: November 2, 2021 - Rating
The theoretical Spinata Grande slot RTP is a decent 96.84% giving this game a low 3.16% house edge.
The most you can win on a single spin is 120,000 in real cash at a maximum bet of 200 per spin. This is 600x your total bet and at minimum bet of 0.20 would reward you with 120 in real cash.
Yes, you can get up to 11 free spins where the wild now comes as a 3x3 colossal symbol offering up the chance for the biggest wins of the casino game.
