How to Play the Piggy Rich Slot
When you enter the game you will find the whole game shouts money at you, the reels are golden, the backdrop is that of a luxury mansion, the logos sparkle and glisten and the pay line markers are wads of dollar bills.
Each time you spin the reels you will hear the ka-ching sound of a cash register being totaled up and when you hit a winning line there is loud celebratory music.
All of the icons are cash and fortune related all gilded with gold laurels, gold teeth and more gold. The lower value icons are the Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace symbols which are all bordered with gold. If you land 5 Aces you can win 125 coins. The high value cards are equally as stunning and also all cash related. They are sacks of money, gold credit cards, piggy car keys for a luxury car, a purse full of money and a rather full piggy bank. All of the symbols animate on a winning line.
To start playing the Piggy Riches slot you will first need to decide your coin values and betting options. The 15 pay lines are not adjustable so you will have to play all of them on every spin but you can adjust the bet level from 1 – 10. The coin values are from 0.01c to 0.50c. If you wager on bet level 1 you can play for $0.15 per spin up to the maximum of $75 per spin on level 10. Once you have chosen your coin value and wager you are ready to get ‘Piggy Rich’ by either clicking the ‘spin’ button or the ‘Max Bet’ button.
The scatter symbol is represented by Mrs. Piggy who is dressed in a glamorous evening gown and has much gold jewelry around her neck and is holding an expensive gift. When Mrs. Piggy lands on the reels you will hear the oink sound and when 2 of these symbols land you are awarded with a 2x multiplier of your line stake. 3 Mrs. Piggy symbols start the free spins round and you also get the instant scatter win of 3x your line stake. The scatter wins go up to 100x multiplier plus free spins when you land 5 of these icons. You can get up to 28 free spins and an extra free spin for every scatter landed during the free spins round. See below for more on how the feature works.
Mr. Piggy is fittingly the wild in Piggy Riches and he will substitute all other symbols on the reels except for scatters, to complete a winning combination. All line wins with a wild will pay a 3x multiplier. The biggest wins in this game come via the feature, however you could win up to 2000 coins in the regular game for lining up 5 ‘Riches’ symbols.
