Review and Where to Play the Piggy Riches Megaways Slot From Red Tiger Gaming
NetEnt’s Classic Hit Piggy Riches Is Back and Now Comes With MegaWays!
Mr Green Casino has just added the new Piggy Riches Megaways slot which is the first full collaboration by Red Tiger Gaming and NetEnt on a slot, the classic Piggy Riches slot from NetEnt has been handed over to Red Tiger Gaming to work their magic on it in this new Megaways version.
The general theme and all of the classic symbols from the original Piggy Riches slot has been beautifully reproduced in the new Megaways version as well as managing to incorporate the key features from the original such as multipliers now featuring as Wild Multiplier Reels and extra spins for every Scatter symbol landing during the bonus round.
As with most Megaways slots the base game can be quite a grind with the main action and excitement coming from the rising multipliers during the free spins and whilst Piggy Riches Megaways does break up the base gameplay with Wild Multiplier reels the main focus is definitely hitting the bonus round with 3 or more scatters.
Before the bonus round begins there is a double bonus wheel that awards not only a random number of free spins but also a starting multiplier value which can really help to kick start the bonus round. Extra spins during the bonus round are not uncommon either with +1 Extra free spin being awarded for every single scatter symbol landing in view during the bonus round.
The main stand out feature to this Megaways slot is the Rising multipliers during the free spins couple with the chance of landing Multiplier wilds also. If you are an already of fan of Megaways slots you will already know what to expect and the potential on offer once the Multiplier reaches values of over 20x!
Check out all the the new bonus features in the gameplay video below!
Piggy Riches Megaways Slot – Gameplay and Bonus Features
Each spin awards a different “ways to win” combination depending on the total number of symbols which land on the reels. Landing the maximum 7 symbols on each of the 6 reels produces the maximum 117,649 Megaways.
Mega Wilds (Wild Reels) will cover an entire reel and have a randomly given multiplier of up to 7x.
There is a maximum of 3 Mega Wilds that can land in view on any spin.
If more than one Mega Wild symbol forms part of a win then the multiplier values combine, so a 3x and 3x Multipliers would combine to give 9x.
The main bonus feature is triggered by landing 3 Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels triggering the Free Spins Bonus Wheel.
Spinning the wheel awards a random number of free spins along with a starting multiplier value, the maximum free spin that can be awarded is 22 and a starting win multiplier of up to 10x.
Each win during free spins will permanently increase the WIn multiplier by +1 during the bonus round, and each Scatter that lands during bonus round awards one additional spin.
Piggy Riches Megaways Slot
The Piggy Riches Megaways slot from Red Tiger Gaming/ NetEnt is a visually superb slot, the original slot has definitely been given a fresh new look whilst retaining the classic feel of the original machine. Whilst there is nothing terribly groundbreaking in terms of this Megaways release the introduction of Multiplying Wilds will definitely offer some big potential, particularly during the bonus round when rising multipliers are also in play.
Gameplay-wise this slot does suffer from the usual Megaways issue in that the bonus round can be incredibly difficult to land and may take several hundred spins before this occurs. In our playtests most bonus rounds also ended in the 20x stake to 100x stake ranges, but our best bonus round was just shy of 500x stake though hinting that this slot has some big hit potential!
If you are already a fan of Megaways slot then this release is definitely worth playing as it is a visually superb release with a few new features and tweaks, the bonus wheel and extra spins are a really nice touch and the multiplying Mega Wilds could produce some huge hits.
