Konami Gaming, Inc. announced the debut launch of its Smash Smash Festival linked bonus game at San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino. The colorful fiesta-themed game attracted hundreds of participants for its Cinco de Mayo world premiere event. Packed with six jackpot levels and random credit prizes, Smash Smash Festival™ features a creative new twist on the traditional linked progressive by increasing the total number of mystery piñata prizes in a winner-takes-all jackpot pool in lieu of incrementing meters. Players at San Manuel are the first in the world to enjoy this new release and celebrated the debut launch complete with live performing mariachis.

“We here at San Manuel offer an exciting gaming and entertainment experience to our guests every day,” says Loren Gill, general manager of San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino. “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.”

Randomly with any purchased spin, Smash Smash Festival awards players the opportunity to select one of two mystery piñata prizes. The selected piñatas bursts open to reveal their prize amount while the other piñata amount remains a mystery as it’s added to a growing jackpot pool of unselected piñatas. As the piñatas pile up, the Smash Time bonus will be awarded, allowing the lucky player to redeem all collected piñatas in the jackpot pool. 

“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,” said Steve Walther, senior director, marketing and product management at Konami Gaming, Inc. “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.”

Smash Smash Festival is exclusively available for Konami’s Concerto™ Collection of video slots, including Concerto upright and Concerto Slant™. Its debut release is featured with an exclusive base game release called Flamenco Flare™ and one of Konami’s most popular Xtra Reward® titles, Chili Chili Fire™.
