Piggy Riches Megaways Review
Piggy Riches is a decedent 6-reel, 117,649 ways to win Megaways slot developed Red Tiger Gaming that just oozes class. This animal-themed slot is all about filthy rich pigs that love all things expensive, so if you have a taste for the good life (and maybe bacon) then you'll LOVE this slot sequel that came about thanks to the big money collaboration between Red Tiger and NetEnt in 2020.
This slot looks stunning and absolutely screams money! The reels are adorned with a mesmerising gold-leaf trim that shines brightly, whilst behind the reels sits a mansion with two animated pig fountains and a red carpet leading up to the front door. It's all very over the top, and some might even say it's quite dated, but we'd disagree! We absolutely love it.
Low paying symbols are your standard royal deck 10, J, Q, K, A. However, they're not as ordinary as your standard low paying symbols as they're encrusted with more gold-leaf, diamonds and jewels, which make them really stand out.
High paying symbols are all items associated with wealth, a piggy bank stuffed with cash, a purse overflowing with cash, keys to an expensive car (that resembles a Rolls Royce key), a golden credit card and a huge sack of gold coins and precious gems.
The scatter symbol is a rich female pig (that looks a little bit Miss Piggy) and the Mega Wilds feature a pig in a tuxedo and top hat surrounded by bags of gold coins and precious gems.
When it comes to how this game sounds, well, it's alright... When the reels aren't spinning players are treated to a low key jazz piece on repeat which can get a little samey after a while. When the reels are spun it gets a little bit more exciting, and when the bonus feature begins it kicks it up another notch.
For a Megaways slot, Piggy Riches Megaways is as straight forward as they come. There are no additional rows that you need to look out for like in games such as Great Rhino Megaways or Bonanza Megaways, everything is right there on the 6 reels.
Players can change their stake (anywhere between 0.10 and 20) and set up to 100 autospins using buttons on the bottom left-hand corner of the game screen. The only other button that's clearly displayed is the large white spin button on the other side.
High volatility slot Piggy Riches Megaways has a disappointing RTP that sits below the industry average at a meagre 94.72%, however, the game's maximum win potential sits at 10,474x the player's initial stake, which certainly does its bit in redeeming this game.
Ironically, you might only want to give this wealth-inspired slot a spin if you've got a healthy bankroll to play with yourself, as you could find your money being swallowed up quite quickly, this is definitely a slot for those with patience.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time playing Piggy Riches, yes, it can be an unforgiving game at times but it's genuinely a lot of fun, especially when you manage to trigger the free spins bonus feature. The original Piggy Riches slot was always a big winner our eyes so it made complete sense for NetEnt and Red Tiger Gaming to give it the Megaways treatment.
