Big Juan Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Big Juan Slot (Pragmatic Play)Big Juan is among the 2021 releases by Pragmatic Play, and this title is themed around Mexican parties. Its main character is a burly Mexican man, whose attire suggests that he is dressed for the holidays.

The main man is holding a couple of revolvers, and as he shoots into the air, he seems to be enjoying every moment of it. It’s a very interesting theme and one that attracted me to playing the game.

Below is my unbiased review of the Big Juan slot:

Game Set-Up

Pragmatic Play has used 5x4 reels and up to 40 pay lines. Feature-wise, I got the opportunity to work with wilds, bonus symbols and a respin feature.

Betting and Prizes

To place a wager, I needed multiples of 40 coins, and the least that I could put in each spin was $0.40.

If you are a high roller, you will be happy to know that Big Juan allows wagers of up to $200 per spin.

The top payout is on an average level, and Big Juan can pay you up to 2,600x the stake ($520,000) per spin. However, be wary of its extremely high volatility.

I’m impressed by the above-average RTP of 96.70%, but it is also important to note that Pragmatic Play includes lower versions, so you should always check with your online casino before coming real money into the game.

Big Juan Slot Features

The Red Chili Wild is one of the available features on this slot. It serves as a substitute for the regular ones, which makes the process of forming winning combos much easier. However, the wild cannot replace the bonus/scatter icon.

If wilds manage to form combos on their own, 3 to 5 wilds have the potential to pay up to 12.5x the stake.

Wild Switch is another of the available features, and it will need at least 6 symbols of the same type, which must only appear on reels 2nd -4th I was quite lucky to land these numbers and that is how all the involved symbols were transformed into extra wilds.

Another of my favourite features on Big Juan is the Pinata bonus. This is the feature that rewards you with the free spins, but before this can happen, you will need to land the Pinata 3 to 5 times. This way, I received 10 to 15 respins.

Theme & Design

It’s all about a Mexican party, and there are many images to suggest that.

The available symbols include a Red Chili (wild), Pinata (bonus symbol), low-value Royals (9 to A), Hot Sauce, Guitar, Girl, Chihuahua, and Big Juan.


Big Juan is one of the best releases that I have seen from Pragmatic Play. It offers a variation on the Hold & Win mechanic, which is pretty unique when compared to the usual one.

My only concern about the game is the lower cap on the prizes, and especially when you consider its high volatility.
