Piggy Riches Megaways
The decadently affluent and world-famous pig family is back on the slot from NetEnt in collaboration with Red Tiger Gaming. Piggy Riches Megaways is giving the 2011-built Piggy Manor a modern reel makeover with up to 117,649 ways that will allow the flamboyant posh couple to reward visitors with expensive champaign and lavish wins of up to 10,474 times their stake. On the menu for the sumptuous buffet for the guests are cascading symbols, reactive wins, Mega Wilds with multipliers of up to x7 and a Wheel of Riches that can get you up to 22 free spins with unlimited progressive multipliers.
Piggy Riches Megaways is a cascading video slot with six reels, up to 7 rows and 64 to 117,649 ways to win, using the licensed game engine from Big Time Gaming. Your attendance at the Piggy Manor soirée starts at just 0.10 credits and peaks at 10 credits per spin. The game has medium to high variance with a slightly below-average RTP of 95.71%.
At the start of every spin sequence, the Megaways game engine will randomly select between two and seven symbols for each of the six reels, creating any number of ways to win up to the maximum of 117,649. Wins are then awarded for two to six adjacent symbols from left to right only. The symbols from a winning combination explode to make room for new symbols to tumble into place. The chain reaction will continue as long as new winners occur after a cascade, allowing you to potentially win multiple times in a single spin sequence.
You will be returning to the decadent residence of the snobbish grunting family with acutely cut lawns and hedges, heavy iron gates and a red carpet leading you up the stairs to the entrance of Piggy Manor, passing water fountains with harp-playing pig statues. The game window has increased substantially to house the extra reels and rows while NetEnt/Red Tiger Gaming kept the original pay symbol set.
Speaking of pay symbols, they start at the low end with the card royals from 10 through to A, awarding 0.4x to 0.8x your stake for a single six of a kind. They followed by a piggy bank, a purse bursting with dollar notes, a set of pig keys, golden credit cards and satchels full of gold coins. The latter is the most valuable with 20x your stake for a single six of a kind. Mr Piggy is still the wild symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols and appearing on reels two to four only, while Lady Piggy acts as the scatter.
Piggy Riches Slot Features
While core to the gameplay is clearly the Megaways engine with its reactive wins and tumbling symbols, Red Tiger/NetEnt have added a few extras that can have a significant impact on your potential winnings. For starters, you can devour Mega Wilds in the base game and free spins. Mr Piggy can appear in full reel height and based on how many positions the respective reel has on the current spin it will award a multiplier of x2 to x7. Up to three can land in a spin sequence, giving you a maximum of 7x7x7 which equals a huge x343 win multiplier. Worth noting is that the multipliers apply only to those wins containing the Mega Wilds.
Hitting three or more Lady Piggy scatters anywhere on the reels within one spin sequence will trigger the Wheel of Riches. It has two rings, each with a number of segments. The inner ring is marked with different amounts of free spins between 7 to 22 and the outer ring is marked with starting win multipliers between x1 and x10. You get one spin on the wheel to determine the number of free spins and starting multiplier for your round. Cross your fingers that it will stop on 22 and x10.
Once done, you will start your bonus feature in the usual Megaways manner. Every winning reaction will increase the win multiplier by x1, no limits. Plus you can land Mega Wilds, in which case the multipliers are combined to potentially lead to even more insane or better said lavish win multipliers. Any Lady Piggy scatter landing will award +1 free spin, again, no limits.
After acquiring Red Tiger Gaming in 2019, it was only a matter of time to see the first Megaways coming from the studios of NetEnt. Interestingly, they took the Red Tiger engine as the basis and slapped the Piggy Riches theme onto it, which was probably easier to do. They have chosen an all-time favourite for their debut on the Megaways stage which should bode well with most players. The win potential is well-sufficient to please any type of gambler. The release is planned for 23rd January 2020.
