Piggy Riches Video Slot review
Piggy Riches a Net Entertainment video slot with 5 reels and 15 paylines. Based on rich and rewarding pigs, this is a slot game that has gained cult status due to being a high variance game. It comes with a 2,000 coin jackpot which you can trigger by getting 5 Riches symbols. In terms of the betting range, you can play for 15p a spin to £75 a spin which is good.
The Mr Piggy Riches symbol is the wild and replaces all other symbols except the Lady Piggy Riches symbols (the scatter).The wild is important as forming a winning combination with a wild will treble the payout. The Lady Piggy Riches symbol, when you get 3 or more, initiates the Free Spins feature which is the main attraction.
You are then presented with a screen where you pick your way to free spins and multipliers. You can get between 9 and 28 free spins and between 2 and 6x multiplier. Getting a 6x multiplier with over 15 free spins will reward you handsomely if you have a bit of luck on your side – I say this as this combination brought me a very good payday.
Finally, if you see Lady Piggy Riches on the reels during a free spin, you will gain an additional free spin. You need to bear in mind that initiating the free spins game doesn’t happen a lot – in fact, it’s hard to trigger. But, once you’re in expect a decent return.
I recommend you play Piggy Riches with care though – don’t expect to win frequently at all because it doesn’t happen. However, the win amounts on this slot have been in my top 10 of all time (and that’s a lot of game time!). I would start with a small stake and work your way up – that’s just me anyway.
It’s a high variance game which can give you huge wins if luck’s on your side – this is the reason why Piggy Riches is so popular and stood the test of time to be one of NetEnt’s most popular slots (such as Dead or Alive). Despite looking a little dated, it’s still my favourite NetEnt slot and one I will keep coming back to.
