In November 2015, we were greeted by a slot created entirely out of a pun. Not that we minded – 1x2 Gaming seems to have a history with making games that can be a bit out there at times. This one offered an idyllic countryside town, where all the cute piglets lived in harmony – until greed became too much for one of them, and now, he’s wanted fried or grilled for robbing the piggy bank!
The slot uses a standard 5 reel, 3 row playing field with 9 flexible paylines, allowing gamblers to turn them on or off at will to converse some money if they want to. The visuals are cutesy and simplistic, and the little animations really make a world of difference in making the game feel that little bit more alive.
Play Piggy Bank
The 5x3 setup is a rather familiar one to most gamblers, and it is littered with many piglets of all professions living their daily lives. The icons pay decently enough, though you won’t find one that will bring any sort of life changing scores here. Instead, the core focus remains on the special features that will allow you to chain wins together under specific circumstances that really help the title shine through.
You will find yourself faced with a rainbow circle that gives you access to free spins – collecting three, four or five Scatters like this will reward you with five, ten or fifteen extra turns, respectively. On top of that, all wins during the feature are doubled and they also reward a cash prize.
How to Play
The way wins are assigned should be familiar to anyone who has played slots before. You need to collect three or more of the same icon that follows one of the nine paylines the game offers. Admittedly, titles usually offer more paylines for this size of the reels, which no doubts plays the part of having the RTP at 95.69%.
You can pick the coin range between $0.01 up to $0.50. Alongside this, you can pick your coin value and amount of active paylines, giving you a maximum bet of $22.5, and the jackpot of $27000.
We’re also pleased to notice that there is an autospin feature available, though it isn’t as detailed as in some other 1x2 Gaming titles.
Strategy & Tips
The sole feature of the title is also its most powerful part. The fact you don’t have to pay for your wins, as well as the fact that all wins are doubled for its duration, make it a must-have if you’re hoping to score any serious wins in this title. Normal gameplay will only get you so far.
When we see a flash prompt asking us to launch the title, it’s usually a good sign that the slot doesn’t have a mobile version – and sure enough, a quick check told us just that. If you were hoping to take your little piglets out and about, you’ll have to do so with your laptop – mobile devices like phones and tablets remain unsupported as of writing of this review.
