Piggy Riches Slot Review

It has to be said that whenever I’ve looked through the Financial Times, I haven’t seen that many report of wealthy pigs. I’ve seen stories about a few fat cats but not pigs. Perhaps they have been really lucky and are really bringing home the bacon? Well, this slot from NetEnt (who definitely know how to make money by creating top slot games) is full of wealthy pigs who are rolling in cash instead of what they usually do that in. It’s always good to see a full piggy bank though.

This is one of those games that is obsessed with money and riches. It’s a five-reel symbol that has three rows of symbols and 15 paylines. Those paylines are a fixed amount so it’s just up to the player to work out their stake level. Playing the game costs between £0.15 and £75. That’s a decent enough range so there shouldn’t be any problems finding a stake level you’ll be entirely comfortable with.

The symbols here include a gold-toothed piggy bank, a purse that is full of cash, a keyring, gold credit cards and a massive pile of jewels and gold, five of those pays 2000x your line bet. To be honest, I’m a bit disappointed by the symbols. I think a more cartoonish look to them would have created a much better set.

The wild symbol in this game is the piggy Lord of the Manor. I dread to think how he’s made his money. He can substitute for other symbols to get you some winning combinations to help you get as rich as him. I guess you could say his assistance is him giving you a piggy back.

If the wild symbol does get you a winning combination then this triples the win. A few of those and you’ll really be smiling like a pig in the proverbial. The wild can’t substitute for the scatter symbol which is his wife who does remind us a bit of Miss Piggy. It can’t be her though because she has a thing for frogs doesn’t she?

You can set an autoplay of between ten and a thousand automated spins. There’s also a paytable and game rules that can get you used to how the game runs. Having some free games can also help you prepare for when you risk your real cash balance.

Bonus Games

To get some free spins you need to get three of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You then have a choice of free spins and a multiplier. You can either go for nine free spins with a 3x multiplier, 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier or 22 free spins with wins doubled. During the free spins if a scatter appears then this gives you another free spin up to a maximum of 28 free spins.

Conclusion

Another entertaining slot from NetEnt. The theme has plenty of humour attached to it and the wild symbol can certainly help get you some good wins. The same goes for the bonus game so this is definitely worth a play.
