Oink at Those Reels!
The game itself is presented on a five reel and three row layout, so frequent video slots players will find nothing new with this. Upon these reels are various different icons pertaining to the theme of being rich, so you can expect too find symbols of purses full of money, the key to an undoubtedly flashy car, gold piggy credit cards, over-filled pink piggy banks, and full-to-bursting brown bags of golden coins and jewels. In addition to this, there are two character symbols in the male and female pigs, as well as the appearance of regular slot symbols, A, J, K, Q and 10.
As well as these features, the developer has also added a total of 15 different pay lines as well, and these are able to be altered around at your own leisure to suit your preferences. In addition, players can also alter the amount of funds they wager per spin around as well, by using the ‘Bet Level’ and ‘Coin Value’ buttons on screen. The first of these can be switched between one and 10, while the value of the coins is changeable between the minimum of $0.01 up to $0.50 per active line. Therefore, should everything be set at its maximum level, gamers can place an overall wager of $75 per round.
Rich and Intriguing Special Features
The two character icons of this game are what provide it with its main special feature symbols, with the first of these being the male pig wearing a top hat, holding a cane and flashing a wad of cash. This is Piggy Riches’ wild icon, and this will act as a stand in for all other symbols on the reels in order to form a winning combination. The exception to this rule is the scatters. Any bet line wins which include the wild icon will see your pay out be tripled.
The scatter symbol of the game is represented by the female character pig icon, who is all done up in designer furs, luxury sunglasses, green gloves and is clutching on to what is no doubt an expensive gift. These symbols pay out wherever they appear on the reels, but three or more of them showing up will reward you with the freespins round. Each of the scatter icons will show an amount of freespins and a multiplier. You need to choose one of these to allow the round to begin, with a maximum amount of 28 freespins and a multiplier of up to times six being available. Each scatter in view during this round will award an extra freespin to you.
Crack Open the Banks!
Piggy Riches is definitely one of this developer’s more generic games in terms of added features, but it does them with such grace and style that it really doesn’t matter. Freespins, scatters and wilds can be found in a mass of other slot games, but almost none of them contain such stellar graphics, game play, and such an awesome theme. Everything is designed to the best it can be, and it manages to tell a story as you play, without actually telling a story at all.
