The Pig Wizard Megaways Video Slot Review

The Pig Wizard Megaways: Demo

The slot world’s unlikeliest sorcerer is back for another outing in The Pig Wizard Megaways. This re-booted version is played using the Megaways game engine where the reels can expand to offer 15,625 way to win. Look out for the Magic Mirror which can trigger added wilds, transforming symbols and streak spins. There’s also a free spins round where random multipliers can send payouts rocketing by up to 50x.

Silly theme

The theme here is supremely silly. This being a slot from Blueprint Gaming it still looks and sounds rather good. With an energetic backing track playing in the background you’ll see A to 10 royal values spinning around the reels as well as symbols relating to the magical theme. It’s all nicely done as per usual.

15,625 Megaways

The original version of The Pig Wizard was a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot. This new version uses the Megaways mechanic where the number of symbols on each reel changes with each spin. The number of ways to create a winner varies too. The reels can combine to offer up to 15,625 Megaways on each spin.

Mystery Mirror modifiers

There’s a single reel window to the left of the main set of reels. This is the Mystery Mirror. This can conjure up some special modifier extras if the symbols fall nicely.

Spinnus Repeatum feature

If the symbol in the Mystery Mirror is the same as the symbol that creates a winner on the main reels you’ll benefit from the Spinnus Repeatum feature. Those winning symbols lock in position and a respin follows. The respins continue if a new matching symbol or wild appears.

Magical Win Spin feature

Hope to see the Pig Wizard appear in the Mystery Mirror. If he does, he can wave his wand and add a selection of extra wilds onto random reel positions. Alternatively, he can add Mystery Symbols. Known as the Magical Win Spin feature, these then all transform into the same matching symbol. A new payout calculation is made with the extra wilds and matching symbols in position.

Winnus Revealo feature

The Pig Wizard can also magically turn a losing spin into a winner via a symbol upgrade. This can trigger at random in any spin. This is called the Winnus Revealo feature.

Free spins with multipliers up to 50x

Land 3 or more Bonus symbols on the same spin to trigger the Magic Spins feature – 3, 4, 5 or 6 bonus symbols will give you 10, 12, 15 or 20 Magic Spins/free spins. On each free spin, a random multiplier is in play. This varies with each free spin and can reach up to 50x! The Mystery Mirror modifiers are in play during the free spins round too. You only need 2 bonus symbols to win additional free spins – with no limits!

A welcome sequel with 10,000 x bet wins

This Megaways version of The Pig Wizard is nicely done. The theme is rather ridiculous but the range of extras impresses. There’s decent variety on offer and the free spins round can pack a punch thanks to the large potential multipliers. The volatility is in the medium to high range with top wins of 10,000 times your bet on each Magic Spin available. If you enjoyed The Pig Wizard’s original bag of tricks, then expect similar magical action in this Megaways-powered sequel.
