The new online slot game Piggy Bank Megaways sees game developer iSoftBet teaming up once again with Big Time Gaming to create a game with the Megaways mechanism.
Piggy Bank Megaways may not be the most original of games out there. It comes with a piggy bank theme that has often been exploited. However, it does come with a funky soundtrack that will have you snapping your fingers with delight.
This pink-coloured online slot game comes with 6-reels and a 70s organ funky soundtrack that will get your head bobbing. If you hit one of the Megaways jackpots, you may end up dancing all night long.
This medium volatile game comes with two forms of payout percentages, the default setting at 95.98% and 97% when players opt for the bonus buy feature.
As always, when it comes to Megaways slots, each reel can display between 2 and 7 symbols leading up to 117,649 ways to win. To achieve a win, you would need to land at least three symbols of a kind starting off from the left-hand side.
When it comes to the low-value symbols, these entail the card icons. The hammer which smashed the bank, the piggy bank, the pile of cash and a logo tile are some of the highest-paying symbols.
Landing six picture symbols on a payline will lead to 2 to 25x your stake. The trio of pigs acts as the game’s wild symbol. They can only crop up on reels 2 to 5.

The Piggy Bank Megaways jackpots can only be won through the respins feature. Players can win a Mini, Major or Mega symbol during this round. However, they can also win regular sums without hitting any of the jackpots. Jackpot prizes are as follows:
- Mini: 10x your bet
- Major: 25x your bet
- Mega: 50x your bet
To activate the free spins bonus round, you will need to land 5 or more Piggy Bank coin scatters anywhere on the reels. There is no free spins bonus round in the traditional sense. Instead, you will trigger the Piggy Rich Cash Respins.
You are immediately awarded 3 respins, with the counter resetting each time a new symbol lands on the reels. If you succeed in covering an entire reel with symbols, you will be granted a multiplier that is equal to the number of symbols on that reel.
During this round, you also have the chance to land one of the three jackpots mentioned above prizes. The feature will keep on going until you run out of respins.
Piggy Bank Megaways delivers a solid yet small range of in-game features, including:
Wilds can pop up on reels 2 to 5. These symbols help create winning combinations by substituting them with other symbols. They have no value in this game, so they can only be used as substitute symbols.
Cascading Wins Feature
Like the majority of Megaways slot games, there is a Cascading Wins feature. This is activated each time you hit a winning combination. All winning symbols are blasted off the reels and replaced by new ones dropping in from the top. You may also hit new winning combinations as well. This feature keeps on going until no new winning combinations are created.
If you want to skip the action in the base game and head straight to the respins feature, you can do so by forking out 50x your bet. When you do so, you will also benefit from a higher payout percentage of 97%.
The gold coins act as scatter symbols in this game. They show up with multipliers on them. If you land at least 5 gold coins anywhere on a single spin, you will trigger the Piggy Rich Cash Respins.
The Max Megaways feature can be triggered at any point. What happens is that 7 symbols will show up across the reels, unlocking the maximum number of Megaways. As a result, you will have instant access to 117,649 ways to win.
The Piggy Bank Megaways RTP stands at a default of 95.98%. This payout percentage is considered average for online slot games. If you opt for the Bonus Buy feature, the payout percentage will increase to 97%.
Since this is a medium volatile slot game, you can expect wins on a semi-infrequent basis.
Piggy Bank Megaways is a funky and colourful online slot game that is bound to attract many fans, especially Megaways ones. It may not boast an original theme, but this game does well enough to offer various jackpot sizes.
It is professionally designed and creates an upbeat and fun environment. The music islands out and brings along with it a feel-good factor. The game enjoys a good range of features as well that come by often.
The Piggy Rich Cash Respins, by far, is the most exciting in-game bonus feature. Throw in a few multipliers, and the game could see you walk off with a generous win, if not a jackpot prize.
iSoftBet has done well enough in creating a solid online slot game, and the entertainment factor is high. However, confusing it with other games with a Piggy Bank theme is very easy.
Since there is no traditional free sp[ins bonus rounds, you could go on a while before hitting a winning combination. As fun as this game sounds, there is very little that helps it stand out from a highly crowded market.
Nevertheless, this game has the funk factor!
