Pragmatic Play Launches ‘Big Juan’ Slot

Gibraltar-based Pragmatic Play, a leading content supplier to the online gaming industry, announced the launch of its latest Mexican-inspired launch, Big Juan.”

Residing on the left-hand side of the screen, a depiction of Big Juan overlooks the high-volatility action and bonus round features, with the traditional-looking streets filling the space behind the colorful reels becoming more visible during the free spins.

The joyful theme creates an atmosphere of celebration exemplified by the decorations in the town, musical instruments, and playful symbols, including a guitar, piñata, hot sauce, and depictions of Big Juan himself. A unique “Wild Switch” feature is triggered when six or more of the same symbol lands across the middle three reels. All the symbols involved turn into wild symbols.

In the free games feature, landing the piñata symbol three to five times takes players to a three-by-three set of reels, providing them with 10 to 15 re-spins and a Bag of Coins symbol placed in the middle of the reels. Here, players can win Extra Spin symbols, Coin symbols, or one of the four fixed jackpots ranging from Mini to Grand, awarding players up to 2,500 times their stake.

Big Juan arrives after recent hits Star Pirates Code, Cash Bonanza, and another Mexican-themed title, Day of Dead, all part of a collection of over 200 HTML5 titles in Pragmatic Play’s award-winning games portfolio.

“We are back with another Mexican-themed adventure, following on from the popular Day of Dead,” said Yossi Barzely, chief business development officer at Pragmatic Play. “The joyful soundtrack and eye-catching animations on display in Big Juan provide a real feast for the senses, topped only by the huge win potential on offer in the free-spin bonus round.”

Pragmatic Play currently produces up to five new slot titles a month, while also delivering live casino and bingo games as part of its multi-product portfolio, available through one single API.
