It never ceases to amaze me the interesting yet wacky slots titles iGaming vendors often conjure up. I’ve heard about dogs and monkeys in space before but never about pigs. Maybe NASA should send pigs to Mars first before they send humans. Be it as it may NetEnt’s When Pigs Fly is strewn with cartoon like graphics, 2 fantastic bonus modes and a non-progressive jackpot win of £75,000 (480,000 coins). The game has 5 reels and 3,125 ways to win paylines. Win this jackpot and pigs will certainly fly!
The average payout percentage to the player is 96.5%. Or a house edge of 3.5%. It simply means that for every 1 coin you wager per spin, the slots pays out 96.5 pennies to the player. In actual fact you’re paying 3.5 cents per spin. The RTP (return to player) of the slots is calculated over millions of spins. If you’ve won €1.93 you are getting not just your 96.5 cents, but the 96.5 cents from another player who lost this amount. Over an extended period the game gives the casino 3.5 cents for every coin wagered. Players will win big and it might look as if the online casino experienced a loss but it’s not. Things tend to average out after extended game play.
As you can see the RTP of the slots is 3.5% which is good. As a rule of thumb I always play slots with a RTP that’s 95% or higher. Then again a higher payout percentage is not necessarily better. Another key component is variance. It determines how often the slots pays out. A machine that boasts a payout of 97% and if it’s low variance pays out often but wins are small. On the other hand you might play a slots with 93% RTP but it’s high variance you can win tens of thousands of dollars. What I’m trying to say here is even though When Pigs Fly boasts a high RTP of 96.5% it’s a medium variance slots which offers lots of small payouts. The game can be played on Androids, iPhones, iPads, desktops and tablets.
With sublime animations and a quirky sound track you can win up to 1,000 time your bet if you hit 5 When Pigs Fly icons on the reels.
The game can be played with $£0.50 up to $£100 per spin. It’s important that you get the bet amount per spin right from the get go. If you don’t play sensibly the slots will fly of with your cash (pun intended).
When Pigs Fly is teeming with wilds, free spins and re-spins. The wild icon is flushed with pink and when it appears in a winning combination on reels 2 and 5 it replaces all the other icons. What makes the wild even more unique is that it pops up during the free spins too boost the free spins wins significantly.
Re-spins: You can win up to 5 re-spins. The reels change (explode) when they appear in a winning combination during the main game giving you one re-spin. As the reels spin two more re-spins can create more winning combinations with increased payline wins:
- The first re-spins offers a payout of 135 times your stake.
- The second 405 times your stake.
- The third up to 675 times tour stake.
- During the fourth re-spin payouts can shoot up to 1,125 but it’s the fifth re-spin that offers the highest win of 1,875 times.
Free Spins: The free spins are triggered when you hit a winning combination on the fifth and last re-spin. You’ll get 8 free spins. Earnings wise, when this happens the reels expand
If you get a winning combination on the 5th and final re-spin you will trigger the Free Spins feature. Eight free spins are awarded. The reels then expand to cover all the 5 reels and rows paying out as much as 3,125 times your stake. In other words the 8 free spins in conjunction with the 3,125 ways to win is added to the total win from the re-spins plus the free spins are added.
NetEnt’s When Pigs Fly offers something unique especially when it coupled the wilds, re-spins and free spins bonus modes. The main game is no slouch either and offers regular payouts but once again I must tip my hat towards the free spins. This is where the fat cash lurks. It’s not often I say this it’s a highly entertaining game with the potential of offering spectacular wins.
