Piggy Riches is one of the most bizarre creations from iGaming masters, NetEnt. Featuring a rather unique theme (who’d have thought about rich pigs enjoying their mansion?!), this slot offers up top quality graphics coupled with some serious in-game features. Compatible for a range of devices including mobile options, Piggy Riches is ready, no matter what your playing preference is, to immerse you in luxury, albeit piggy style. Wallowing in their fortunes rather than mud, these luxury pigs are ready to entertain and possibly make you a little richer too!
Piggy Riches don’t just have an impressive set of bonuses (we’ll get to those below), but it also offers a range of functions that are in place to make your gambling experience a better one. For instance, there’s a handy auto spin function that allows you to set the bet and number of spins you want to play through, and the game does it for you. You can also stop a spin mid-turn using the Stop spin feature so you can make the judgment rather than the game.
All the in-game symbols are based on pigs, very rich pigs. The low-value icons are represented by standard playing cards with values from 10 through to Ace. Each of these is incredibly designed, covered in diamonds or encrusted with some kind of expensive jewel – opulence is the name of the game here. The higher value icons are all a bit fun, though not what you’d expect a pig to be using, and include bursting purses, credit cards, gold, expensive-looking keys and keychains and even furs.
There are also some very important bonus icons to look out for. Mr Piggy Riches is the wild symbol and he will substitute for all other symbols in order to help make winning combinations. The exception to this is the scatter icon, naturally represented by Mrs Piggy Riches! Landing the wild is always good though, as it will triple any winning outcome, whilst the scatter will give you a series of free spins. Both bonus icons can really propel you to the money-earning portion of the game.
Landing a minimum of three Mrs Piggy Riches scatters is what starts the Free Spins round. Once it is activated you’re taken to a new screen where you get to choose the number of free spins and multipliers you would like to use. There are up to 28 free spins to grab, alongside a 6x multiplier. However, this feature doesn’t come up so often so you’d best make the most of it when it does. It’s also worth noting that if you land another scatter during the Free Spins round, you’ll get an extra spin.
There’s a pretty lucrative jackpot available and this is won by landing five of the Riches logo symbols. Doing so will activate the 2000 coin jackpot. This may not sound like much but actually you can win as much as 360,000 coins especially if you are placing some larger bets. It’s hard to know when or if this feature will get triggered though, so you may have to try and stretch your bankroll. But that’s part of the fun with playing this entertaining piggy online slot game.
The game has five reels and a rather small 15 paylines. Happily you can choose to bet on a range of paylines, it’s entirely up to you. However, the betting limit is so broad that you can actually play all 15 paylines for as little as 0.15, which we highly recommend doing – you’ll always get better results utilising all the paylines that are available to you. Don’t worry all you high rollers out there, there’s a top bet of 75.00 per spin, so you can hope to accumulate a large prize too.
Return to player rate or RTP is the amount that you can expect to be returned to you after a gameplay session. However, there is a caveat to this in that the RTP is theoretical. This means that the RTP has been calculated across thousands of spins being played. Any session played by you may or may not match this, so don’t assume you’ll be getting the exact RTP. Piggy Riches’ RTP is an impressive 96.38%, which means for every 100.00 you spend, you’ll get 96.38 back – theoretically!
Volatility, also known as variance, refers to the frequency and size of wins you can expect throughout playing a slot. High volatility games will pay out massive wins, but you’re going to have to be patient as there will be dry spells before you get there. Low volatility games offer plentiful wins of small value. Piggy Riches sits smack in the middle, offering decent wins at a regular pace with the occasional whopper thrown in at random. This makes it perfect for players of all budgets and preferences.
As you might expect, this game has become hugely popular, even reaching cult-like status among its fans. Offering that classic slot feel, but providing a totally unique and graphically stunning slot, Piggy Riches certainly ticks all the right boxes. Though mid variance, things can take a while to warm up and it’s really all about those free spins if you want to hit the big one. If pigs can get lucky though, so can you so why not see if you can be rolling in gold like Mr and Mrs Piggy are!
