Piggy Riches Megaways
Big Time Gaming
Net Entertainment got 2020 off to a flying start with Rise of Maya. Knowing the real money slots vendor it has a bag of treats in store for us with Piggy Riches Megaways. The high variance slot just came off its production line and the sequel to Piggy Riches released a few years ago. Instead of going solo with Piggy Riches Megaways, NetEnt joined forces with Red Tiger.
If you haven’t heard the news by now, the world’s premier free slots developer recently purchased Red Tiger. NetEnt did not disclose the amount it bought the site for. It did however tag the Megaways engine onto Piggy Riches – smart move! If you can’t beat them just buy them! Piggy Riches Megaways looks different than its predecessor, but Mr and Ms Piggy are still there.
It sports a massive 117,649 paylines, 6 reels and 2 to 7 rows and it’s a visual tour de force. You’ll notice that the game grid is significantly different than Piggy Riches’. The mechanic is further augmented by Cascading Reels. During winning combinations the symbols explode and new ones drop in from the top. Therefore, making successive wins on a single spin possible. The jackpot (non-progressive) of Piggy Riches Megaways is 10,474x your stake. Bets per spin start with a modest £$0.10 to £$10, playable at our best Mobile Casinos. In terms of in-game features it’s bursting at the seams with Free Spins With an Increasing Win Multiplier, Mega Wilds and a Free Spins Wheel. Wow!
Symbols on the reels are cards from 10 to Ace, the piggy bank, purse with wads of money, gold card, car keys and the Mr Piggy (Mega Wild) and Mrs Piggy (scatter). The premium symbol is the money purse, 6 of them on the reels pays 20x your stake. Piggy Riches Megaways has a theoretical return to player percentage (RTP) of 95.71%.
Mr Piggy is the Mega Wild. When a bunch of them pitch they cover an entire reel with a top multiplier of up to 7x. It gets even better. When 3 of them appear their multipliers combine. So, if a Mr Piggy with a 7x multiplier comes along, and another two Mr Piggies, the multiplier is 21x!
To get into the Free Spins you need 3 Mrs Piggie scatters. Once triggered, a new screen containing a Free Spins Wheel with two segments opens up. The outer segment with numbers represents the Free Spins. And, the other segment the multipliers. Spin the wheel. Once it stops spinning, you’ll see how many free spins you get as well as the multiplier value attached to each Free Spin. You can gain up to 22 free spins while the top multiplier is 10x. Every time you score a winning free spin the multiplier value increases by 1x.
The multiplier wilds also combines with the multiplier. As a result the multipliers can be huge not to mention the payouts. Furthermore, the Cascading Reels is applied to the free spins too. For every scatter that appears, an extra free spin is awarded.
It amazes us how absolutely incredible a slot game can look when the right developers put pen to paper. NetEnt and Red Dog liberated Piggy Riches and transformed it into something spectacular…Piggy Riches Megaways! It contains a number of impressive features that really shine in the Free Spins: Stacked Wilds, 10x Multipliers and a jackpot of 10,444x your stake. It has just the sort of graphical content to toss down the hungry gullet of any slots enthusiast. Top marks from us!
What’s the game’s strongest attribute?
To be honest there are plenty and we’ll do it injustice if we just single out one. The visuals are sharp further backed by a pin-dropping audio. It has a Free Spins feature with win multipliers, standard multipliers and stacked wilds. However, the free spins is where you want to be because this is where you’ll win the jackpot of more than 10,000x your stake. If you land plenty of stacked wilds and they combine with the max multiplier of 10x, the net result is bliss!
