Whether it is their bodies or their behaviour, people have always liked to use pigs as comic relief. The original “Piggy Riches” from NetEnt had players working at the house of Gentleman Pig and Lady Pig with the hopes that the two would share their wealth with the players. In the Megaways version from Red Tiger Gaming, the chances are even bigger while also increasing the chances of winning.
Players who have played the NetEnt version will find quite a few things similar with these new slot but will also notice quite a few changes in this slot. Players will appreciate how the pigs have moved up in the world as their new mansion now presents six reels and 117, 649 ways to win.
Players will be trying to match symbols to get winning combinations as always. The game has five basic playing cards as its low-value symbols. Players will be aiming for the more valuable symbols that carried over from the original.
This includes bags of gold, credit cards, piggy banks, purses and car keys. All of these were present in the original and they are back for more.
Gentleman Pig himself shows up to act as the Mega Wild for this game. He won’t just be a single symbol. Players will see expand to cover an entire reel. He will complete winning combinations except for those that have Lady Pig, who acts as the scatter, in them. But his expansion allows him to complete multiple wins.
The game’s special features are also impressive. Like in all MegaWays games, players will have a fluctuating number of paylines as symbols are revealed. Players only need to score three symbols to get a winning combination. The only exception is the bags of gold, where only two need to appear on a payline.
Besides the basics, the special features are pretty nice. Gentleman Pig also provides multipliers that can stack. This can result in some pretty big prizes. The game has an RTP of 95.7 percent. That is pretty decent considering the big payout that players can expect.
Lady Pig is just as impressive as a scatter. Players need three of her to get 22 free spins. There are also multipliers involved, up to 10x the winning stake. During the free spins, each win increases the multiplier by one. Players can also get more free spins if they get more scatters. Overall, this is a fun little game that players should try!
