The Great Pigsby
Enter the mansion of the Great Pigsby on the slot of Relax Gaming and enjoy a lavish party with fizzling champagne and glamorous guests. Francis Scott Fitzgerald probably never dreamed of having his famous novel ‘The Great Gatsby’ receive nearly 100 years later a hilarious porky makeover on a video slot. However, the game studio has gone to great length to transfer the glittering world of the 1920s to five reels with cartoon piggies replacing the main characters. So welcome to Hog Mansion with expanding wilds, a respin feature, a random reel modifier and a free spins round where low-value symbols are removed and can lead to wins of up to 2,500 times your stake.
The Great Pigsby is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 243 ways to win. Joining the party at Hog Mansion on desktop or mobile will cost you from as little as 0.10 credits up to 200 credits. The RTP of this medium variance game is set at 96.55%. Want to have the reels spin while you are relaxing? Then use Autoplay to set up 10 to infinite consecutive spins without interruption.
Graphics and Visuals
The Great Pigsby’s mansion in its full splendour serves as the background to a lavishly designed game window. Party guests can be seen dashing past the windows drinking and dancing while a red carpet is leading to the entrance of the mansion. A golden piggy bank is towering on top of the game window and will play a significant role in triggering the bonus features. The Great Pigsby together with his dashing girlfriend as well as diamonds, gramophones and champagne glasses feature prominently on the reels. A typical instrumental jazz piece from the 1920s is accompanying the usual reel noises.
As expected, the pay symbols are just as lavishly designed, starting with the card royals 10 to A being marked with sparkling diamonds. They are followed at the medium level by a champagne glass, a green gemstone in a red case and a gramophone. The premium symbols are the glamorous hosts, the Great Pigsby and his girlfriend. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 0.3x to 2x your stake. A piggy bank is the wild symbol, expanding when it appears on the reels. There are no scatters on this slot as the bonus features are triggered via a different method.
The Random Great Pigsby Spin
The feature can trigger randomly on any spin in the base game, adding more top paying Great Pigsby symbols to the reels and thus providing a higher potential to hit a big win.
The Great Pigsby Bonus Features
Any wild coin landing on a spin in the base game will expand to cover the reel and will also be added to the piggy bank on the top. The piggy bank is growing with every gold coin and can burst after each addition to shower the game window with gold and award one of two bonus features.
- Wild Respin – the reels respin after any potential wins are paid while the piggy bank will spread wild reels. On each occasion, two to four reels can turn into a stacked wild. However, this applies to reels two to five only.
- Free Spins – The door to the mansion opens to reveal a new reel set. The game awards 10 free spins which cannot be retriggered. After every second spin, one of the low-value card royals is removed from the reels. On the final spin, only medium and high paying symbols will be on the reels. Hitting a full screen of the Great Pigsby symbols will pay 486x your bet.
Are we completely dazzled by the glitz and glamour on The Great Pigsby slot? The party was certainly enjoyable, aided by the catchy soundtrack, stunning graphics and the cold champagne. However, we did not like the rather low pays. Having a full screen of top pay symbols should be the start of super mega win celebrations whereas on this slot it peaks below 500 times the stake. But the game is very playable and good for regular medium to big wins in the 50x to 200x region.
