Piggy Riches Megaways Slot Machine Game Overview
The swine-themed slot is having a second go around the block thanks to a Megaways reboot. Version 2.0 comes from a collaboration between NetEnt and Red Tiger Gaming, bringing players a whopping 117,649 winways and some very dicey high volatility.
Players willing to step into the pigsty will be rewarded with a highly rewarding free spins feature that rests on unlimited multipliers, plus the opportunity to cash out a top prize of up to 10,000 x the stake. But should the providers have stuck with the classic favourite? Read on to find out.
|Cascading Symbols||When you get a winning combination, the contributing symbols are removed from the reels – the remaining symbols drop down to fill the vacated spaces. New symbols drop the newly vacated positions meaning you have another chance to get another win – the cascades continue until no more new wins are created. This is called the Cascading Symbols feature.|
The dapper pig in the top hat and tails is the game’s Wild. He comes stacked 3 symbols high and equipped with a built-in 7 x multiplier. He can stand in for all symbols except the Scatter (more on this below), and up to 3 Mega Wilds can land on any spin.
Getting this to happen is incredible because it means that the multiplier values are combined, giving you a maximum of three 7 x multiplier wilds combined for huge wins.
The scatter is represented by the Lady Piggy Riches symbol – 3 of these will activate the Free Spins feature. You then spin a wheel where you can win up to 22 free spins with a starting multiplier up to 10x.
During the feature, each winning combination increases the multiplier 1 – with no limits. The multiplier can only increase. Every scatter symbol which appears will reward you with 1 additional free spin.
|Symbol||Two on a Payline||Three on a Payline||Four on a Payline||Five on a Payline||Six on a Payline|
Okay, let’s recap. The slot definitely offers the potential for wins that can put a big smile on your face. But the game mechanics can get in between you and your visions of triumph. Players will have to contend with a sub-par RTP, and a limited bet range that will hinder those that enjoy the thrill of a big risk.
The Megaways feature doesn’t actually do much to increase wins, but it does help them come around more often. All in all I would advise players that Piggy Riches Megaways’ gameplay can be just as pig-headed as the characters, so come prepared.
