Peaky Pigs

star-rating 4/5

Join the underworld of dock-working pigs from the early 1900s in a powerful online slot game by Microgaming in collaboration with Snowborn Games.

This game features a few intriguing extras, including several multiplier wilds, a sticky wilds free spins bonus round and the maximum win potential of 20,000x your bet.

The game is set across 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 fixed paylines. In this slot game, we will meet some of the game, including Billy Bacon, Sam The Ham, Ricky Ribs and Tommy Hilpigger (See what they did here?!). Coincidentally, these are the highest-paying symbols in the game, paying between 20x and 25x your bet for five of a kind.

The wild symbols also do a spectacular job in not only substituting with other symbols but of paying a whopping 11x your bet for five of a kind on a payline. Bear in mind that the wilds in the game also come with various multiplier values attached.

The medium and the lower paying symbols pay out between 1.25x and 5x your bet for five of a kind, while the bonus symbol will pay out 1.5x your bet for three of a kind on a spin. The medium to lower-paying symbols includes the horseshoe, the broken bottles, the knuckleduster, the razor blade, the boxing gloves and the pint of beer.

The payout percentage is 96.09%, while the game’s high volatility makes it as dangerous as the pigs themselves. Nevertheless, there are some opportunities which could generate some interesting wins.

Peaky Pigs jackpots

There are no Peaky Pigs jackpots available in this online slot game. The maximum win that can be achieved in this game is 20,000x your bet.

Peaky Pigs free spins

Land three or more pocketwatch scatter symbols to activate the Peaky Pigs Free Spins bonus round. The scatter symbols can only land on reels one, three and five. When this happens, you will immediately receive three free spins, with each wild landing onto the reels staying locked into place for the remainder of the round. Whenever a wild lands on the reels, the spin count is reset.

Even better with extra spin, one chosen sticky wild comes with a multiplier that is increased by +1x up to a maximum of 9x.

In the base game, multiple wilds forming part of a single winning combination will be multiplied together. The same goes for the free spins bonus round.

Peaky Pigs bonus features

There are not that many features available in the Peaky Pigs slot game. These include:

Wilds

Wilds play a big role in the entertainment factor of this online slot game. They will replace other symbols in order to generate winning combinations. During the free spins bonus round, they will become sticky with multipliers to boost the wins.

Piggy Pots Bonus

Every time a coin symbol appears on top of a pig symbol, the coin will be collected. It will, in turn, boost your chances of triggering the Piggy Pots Bonus. Each of the four pigs will be assigned one of four prizes, namely 15x, 20x, 200x and 5,000x. You will also receive five free spins.

Any piggy symbols that land on the reels will then land you one of the corresponding cash prizes.

Bonus Buy Feature

If you want to buy your way into the free spins bonus round, you will be pleased to learn that it only costs 50x your bet, which is significantly lower when compared to the prices of other slot games.

Peaky Pigs RTP

The payout percentage of Peaky Pigs stands at an average of 96.09%. This is also a highly volatile online slot game, so big wins will come on an infrequent basis.

Verdict

Peaky Pigs is a very good-looking online slot game that is fun and appealing. The multiplier wilds feature is quite a popular one and is available in many online slot games in the industry. The Piggy Pots bonus feature can also be triggered at any point, which can lead to bigger thrills.

The main attraction of the slot game is the free spins bonus round which comes with multiplier sticky wilds. We must admit that the game was really visually-pleasing, but there were not too many features to write home about. Since this is a new slot game, we would have expected the game providers to think a little outside the box and bring something new to the table.

Some players will love this online slot game, but you will have to wait around for the free spins bonus round to bring in some wins, especially considering the high volatility levels. Even so, the free spins bonus round only gives you three spins. The variance may play a big role in this round to bring it to a sudden end.

There is no guarantee that you will land wilds during this round and the respin counter reset. As a result, you could end up spending more money than you had originally hoped to generate.

Nevertheless, even though it lacks variety and features, some players will definitely enjoy the gang of pics. You may want to join them in a similar role!
