Get ready to hang out with some wealthy animals on the slot from NetEnt. Piggy Riches has been around for nearly a decade and still is one of the most popular slots from this developer. In fact, so popular that NetEnt went to the expense to upgrade it from Flash to the modern HTML5 format. Wild substitutions and a free spins round with three choices can lead to wins of up to 3,000 times your bet.
Piggy Riches or for the Asian region Pirate from the East is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 15 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for two to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Your road to riches on desktop or mobile starts at 0.15 credits and peaks at 75 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96.40%.
The mansion of the wealthy pig family can be seen in the background of the semi-transparent game window which in itself is held by the open gates that would lead to the entrance. Red carpets are spread out on the stairs awaiting your arrival. A generic reel soundtrack completes the design.
Piggy Riches has 13 pay symbols, starting at the low end with the card royals from 10 through to A. Hitting five on a line will pay 3.33x to 4.16x your bet. They are followed by a piggy bank, purse bursting with dollar notes, a set of pig keys, golden credit cards and brown bags full of gold coins. Land five across the reels to wins 13.33x to 133.33x your stake.
Two other symbols you may wish to keep an eye out for is the laughing Mr Pig dressed as a banker as the wild symbol and Mrs Piggy as the scatter. The wild will triple all wins when it is part of the combo.
There is really only one feature on this slot but it can pack quite a punch as it comes with three options that have win multipliers of up to x5. Three or more Mrs Piggy scatters will trigger the round and will also pay 4x, 15x and 100x your total bet for three, four and five scatters respectively. The game will lead to a second screen, displaying three options for your bonus round. You can pick any on each occasion. During the feature, any scatter appearing on any reel will award +1 free spin, no limits.
Piggy Riches dates back to the time when 15 to 25-line slots with a simple free spins round were the norm and it is one of the creations that has kept its appeal throughout the years, possibly because of the three choices for the feature. Beware though it is highly volatile and can eat any balance on a bad day but it can also pay big the soon the pigs are in party mood.
