Everyone’s heard of a piggy bank, but, most people don’t really overthink things. Not overthinking things is usually a good thing. It stops people from spending too much time on weird things when there are far more pressing matters to attend to. But it can often lead to some oddly amusing things – such as NetEnt’s latest creation.
Piggy Riches offers gambles a 5x3 playing field with 15 fixed paylines, with Wilds that offer a 3x multiplier for every win they’re a part of, and a promise of a massive cash prize and free spins if you manage to collect enough of those all too valuable Scatters, reaching up to a 100x score on top of a guaranteed feature. How’s that for investing in your piggy bank?
The title was developed in 2010, and the only reason we even suspected it wasn’t a modern NetEnt title were some stiffer animation than usual, and the user interface still sporting the silver and green colour scheme that feels a little more reminiscent of a physical machine compared to a more flat design that they incorporate nowadays. Have no fear – the backdrop, the visuals, and animations all have that NetEnt shine you know and love. It’s just not quite as refined yet as it is right now.
In terms of symbols, you will find the familiar playing card symbols – 10, J, Q, K and A, dressed in gaudy textures and small flowers laid on top of them that look every bit as awful as that colourful suit from forty years ago you either still own, or was passed down to you as a hand-me-down. The rest of the symbols are all about that cash flow. Piggybanks, purses, golden-plated credit cards, keys to the vault and bags full of golden coins. These pigs are loaded, there’s no denying that. The male pig acts as the Wild, while the female pig is the Scatter.
During both free spins and normal gameplay, any win with a Wild in it will result in a 3x multiplier being applied to the winning combination. The second bonus involved is the Scatter, which pays out a cash prize for collecting at least two, but three or more Scatters will reward a free spins bonus with an attached multiplier to it.
Once the bonus is won, depending on how many Scatters were part of the feature trigger, you are given a choice between different variations of the bonus, in which you balance the amount of extra spins to the strength of the multiplier itself. The highest possible amount of free spins is 28, and the biggest multiplier you can reach is 6x.
We somewhat recall it being a big deal when we’ve seen developers phase out Scatters rewarding cash prizes, and revisiting Piggy Riches was a nice reminder of how things used to be done. Nowadays, all the features are much more interconnected, as a means of making up for the raw cash you could win by just activating the bonus.
Piggy Riches is a medium high volatility offering from NetEnt with an RTP of 96.4%. The theme is awesome, the gameplay is good, and it has decent winning potential.
