7 Piggies is a video slot created by Pragmatic Play, set on an idyllic farm far from any big cities. But in this game, it’s the pigs that are running the show! There’s no trace of any humans to be found anywhere! Instead, this porcine society blends some odd mixture of modern technology and medieval monarchy. There’s only one special feature, which are free spins with attached multipliers!
We’re not sure how to feel about the theme itself. Coming up with something new and creative every month can be quite taxing. But this whole release just doesn’t make much sense to us. It’s set on a farm, but all the piggies are royalty, vampires, underage or city workers! It feels more like the developer cobbled it together and polished it a little here and there.
Play 7 Piggies
Credit where it’s due, Pragmatic Play haven’t included boring playing card royals into the mix. They’re committed to the idea of working pigs, and we’re willing to meet them halfway. The most valuable one is Wild, followed by the worker pig. The princess and vampire share the same cash value, as do the teenager and baby piglet! Scatter represented as the barn is present, but has no value by itself. Instead, it only serves as a means of triggering free spins.
How to Play
The slot is played on a 5x3 board with 7 fixed paylines. We’ll be honest, we’re not huge fans of this arrangement. The developer compensates for this slightly by decreasing the number of symbols you can find on the playing field. But still, only 7 paylines for a playing field usually designed to house 20 to 25? You can expect wins to be few and far between!
The Spin button is in the shape of the Pragmatic Play logo, which is a nice aesthetic touch. To the left and right of the Spin are plus and minus buttons. By pressing these, you can adjust your total wager, by changing your coin per payline and coin value. Players can wager between $0.07 and $35 for each spin.
Collect three or more identical icons in consecutive positions from left to right to land a win! However, the winning combination will only count if the symbols passed through one of the seven active paylines. Scatters are exempt from this rule, and can win from any position.
Strategy & Tips
To start the fun, collect three or more Scatters at the same time in any position. This starts you off with five extra turns and a 1x multiplier. However, you don’t get to play those free spins immediately! Instead, you click Barn Scatters that were used to activate the special feature. Each barn has a chance to reveal more free spins or multipliers.
You can get 3, 5, 8 or 10 free spins from a barn. You can also get a 1x, 2x, 3x or a 5x multiplier increase. Gamblers can only get free spins or a multiplier, but not both at once from same Scatter. Naturally, triggering free spins with more Scatters means you get extra free spins or more multipliers.
Beyond some general layout adjustments, there are no changes between the mobile and desktop version.
