NetEnt’s Piggy Riches Slot Review

Piggy Riches: Demo

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. Playable from 15p to £75 per spin on all devices, it’s all about the Free Spins feature where you can get multipliers up to 6x. It offers wins of up to 2,400 x bet on every free spin.

Join rich pigs

With a mansion in the backdrop, Piggy Riches looks a little dated as it was released back in 2014. With classy A, K, Q, J and 10 royals on the reels, you’ll also see piggy banks, purses full of notes, keys to luxury cards, gold credit cards and sacks full of gold coins. The latter is the most rewarding symbol giving you 133.33 times your bet for 5 on a payline.

Trebling wild

The Gentleman Pig symbol is the wild and replaces all other symbols except the Lady Pig scatter. More importantly, the wild will treble your payout (i.e. apply a 3x multiplier) when it forms part of a winning combination. This means 1 gentleman pig wild and 4 of any of other symbol will result in a 3x payout.

Free spins with multipliers up to 6x

When you get 3 or more Lady Pig scatters on the reels, you’ll play the only bonus extra, the Free Spins feature. 2, 3, 4 or 5 Lady Pig scatters will give you 2, 4, 15 or 100 times your bet – 3 or more will give you access to the Free Spins feature.

You then pick 1 of the scatters to give you a free spins and multiplier combination. You can play with between 9 and 28 free spins with a multiplier of between 2x and 6x. Every Lady Pig scatter you see during the feature will reward you with 1 more additional free spin – you can’t play with more than 28 in total.

Piggy Riches verdict

That’s about it for Piggy Riches – it may only have 1 bonus feature but it has the potential for huge wins if you get a big multiplier in the Free Spins feature. High variance, you can pocket 2,400 times your bet on every free spin (with the 6x multiplier). You should get plenty of entertaining from your bankroll too as the RTP is a high 96.4%.

As a result of these potential payouts, Piggy Riches has gained cult status and stands the test of time – much like Gonzo’s Quest. If you want something more modern and with better graphics, times have moved on quite significantly – NetEnt released Piggy Riches Megaways in January 2020 which is the same graphically but offers up to 117,649 ways to win, Mega Wilds with multipliers, unlimited free spins, infinite multipliers and over 10,000 x bet payouts per spin.
