This award-winning online slot machine first arrived in casinos as recently as March 2015, but unfortunately at the time of writing it has yet to arrive at any US online casinos.

The Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, Simon Hammon, commented on picking up the award. He said, “To win the eGR Game of the Year award, voted for by operators, is fantastic reward for everyone involved in bringing Spiñata Grande to market.” He then finished by saying, “NetEnt always strives to design and build games that excite players and fulfil the requirements of our customers.” We took these words directly from a recent NetEnt press release.
