Like everything NetEnt plays, it is a quality slot machine in terms of its graphics, nothing to say, although this is an online slot machine that does not pretend to stand out in this aspect, there are no great effects, no 3D movies at the beginning and also no soundtrack, just some sound effect in the game to make it more enjoyable.
It seems that they have wanted to focus more on the sense of humor that comes out and highlight their interesting free spins bonuses that we will be able to choose from when the time comes. Piggy Riches is a slot machine game that was launched in 2010 and has 5 reels, 3 rows and 15 pay lines where our fortune will be allied with Mr. and Mrs. Riches.
According to the data given by NetEnt in the game instructions, the theoretical return to the player is 95.8% to 96.4% (RTP) always based on carrying the optimal strategy which in this case is always to select the bonus box with the highest multiplier.
The minimum stake is 0.15 and the maximum stake is 75. That makes it potentially attractive to those people who for whatever reason have a low account, being able to afford to play a good time with low bets and giving the possibility to raise it again.
The same would apply to those people who play with casino bonuses and want to free themselves from betting requirements. The free spins bonus that the game has will help make it easier too.
The symbols of the game are about pigs and riches, so among the best paid are a piggy bank full of money, a lady’s purse that can’t even be closed from the many bills she has, the personalized keys to what is supposed to be a mansion or a car, a gold credit card and the best-paid symbol that is sacks overflowing with gold coins and precious stones.
For getting 5 of these sacks you will get 2,000 coins. The set with the lowest values is the highest value symbols in the poker deck on 10, J, Q, K, and A.
The jokers are represented by Mr. Pig in a Hat, all smiling, with bills in his hand and with the inscription Wild. The wild symbol in the Piggy Riches online slot replaces all symbols except the scatter symbols and the wild pay line prizes of x3.
Piggy Riches’ symbols are of course focused on wealth. Starting with the stylised A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols, which give reduced prizes, you can expect prizes of up to 125 coins.
The symbols that pay the most are also represented by a moneybox, a bag full of cash, car keys with a personalised key ring, gold credit cards and finally bags full of gold coins and shiny jewellery. Here the highest prize can be up to 2,000 coins.
Piggy Riches also has a wild symbol (the “piggy bank” man of the house), which goes through a x3 multiplier when replaced to form a winning conjunction on the cylinders. It is substantial to note that the wild is impossible to use as a substitute for the scatter symbol, as is usual in most online slot games.
Then there is a scatter symbol (the “piggy bank” woman in the house). 3 or more scatters will turn on the free spin mode, in which every added scatter you roll will give a free added spin. Also, before you start your free spin game, you will be exposed to different sets of free spin values and multipliers on each scatter symbol you have drawn.
Amongst other things, one of the scatter symbols will present you with the alternative of 15 free spins and a multiplier of x2, whilst the other two may display 9 free spins with a multiplier of x3 or a similar conjunction. Now, you must choose which one to go for.
Here we have the portrait of Lady Pig, the scatter symbol of the Piggy Riches slot machine. It’s a painting where the little pig is favored, with her exuberant and striking style and a little gift box in her hand. Every time it appears on screen we are announced by the sound of the onomatopoeia “oink”, another touch of humor from the slot machine.
There’s nothing more cheerful about this game than seeing this scatter symbol appear on screen because it’s the one that will lead to the free spins bonus. A very beneficial bonus spin.
Three or more scatter symbols must appear for the bonus spins to be activated. From the scatter symbols on the screen, you will need to choose one.
Each of them will show several different combinations of the number of free spins and multipliers. For example, you can be given a choice of 22 x 2 free spins or 15 x 3 free spins or 9 x 5 free spins.
The maximum number of free spins we can be given to choosing from is 28 and the maximum multiplier will be 6. Whilst you are playing the free spins, if any scatter symbols appear on the Lady Pig you will get an additional free spin.
We value the fact that the type of bonus free spins can be chosen by the player, basically because it allows us to interact, to make some decisions where basically everything is left to chance and makes the game more suited to each player’s style, whether you like the long spin and the excitement of seeing what each spin brings or whether you like to get down to brass tacks and receive higher payouts in one go.
Since July 2014, 4 years after its premiere, Piggy Riches arrives in our tablets and mobiles. Without loss of quality and adaptable to any screen.
The fact that NetEnt is betting, 4 years after its launch in online casinos, on making the slot accessible in a mobile version and adding it to its Touch collection, proves that it is still a successful slot machine and that it is still valid, good for you Piggy Riches!
