Piggy Riches Megaways Slot Free Play
Red Tiger is a younger developer, but one which has quickly proven that they’re one of the best around. They launched a large number of slots in the last couple of years, and they got the attention of NetEnt, so they were acquired by them in 2019. They’ve started launching better games feature wise lately, and the volatility and payouts have been going up as well.
How To Play It
Red Tiger games don’t have the type of bet setup that will require a lot of thinking on the player’s part. You see it in a slot with Megaways as well, where you’re asked only to select the bet for the next spin. The options range from $0.10 to $10.
A Megaways slot, this version of Piggy Riches gets 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win. This is possible thanks to the fact that the number of symbols is random, for each of the 6 reels, 2 to 7 being selected in each case. The number of ways to win can vary from a few hundred, to 117,649. That’s a lot of opportunities for wins to form, but they’re still not guaranteed, even with all those positions.
As usual, the megaways are advertised next to a system with cascading reels. This one removes the winning symbols from any combinations that might form, and will allow others to come in and create new wins.
One of the main characters, a Gentleman Pig, is going to show up as a mega wild. It expands and covers a full reel, boosting wins by up to 7s. With several wilds present, and up to three are allowed, the multipliers are going to work together and combine their value.
A Lady Pig is the other feature symbol that you are able to use, a scatter that needs to appear at least three times. You get into the free spins as a result, with a Free Spins Wheel deciding how many spins you get, as well as the multiplier for them.
The most you can get is 22 rounds, while multipliers will start from as much as 10x. In this mode, the multiplier goes up following every cascading reels mechanic, and there is no limit to its value. Add the multiplier wilds to the mix, and things start getting interesting.
In a slot with over 117,649 Megaways, even low value symbols can prove to be huge winners for the player. The volatility being extremely high, it’s not very likely that you will get big wins though. The developer also limits the maximum prize that the game will pay, in this case the cap being at 10,474x the stake.
The part that I’m OK with, but not a fan, is the 95.71% RTP that Piggy Riches Megaways relies on. Quite a few Megaways slots will be above 96%.
Piggy Riches Megaways is offering its players the typical mix of high volatility and big potential, that all slots have in this category. Add pretty graphics and several good features, and it’s a slot to pay attention to.
