Theme of The Game
While there is clear inspiration from the early 20th century, and the Art Deco movement, The Great Pigsby Megapays still ends up being a slot machine with pigs for its main characters. It’s borrowing that classy design from The Great Gatsby, a book which covers that particular era. It has plenty of fans, so it shouldn’t be surprising that we’re getting slot machines based on it as well. The presence of pigs on its reels, instead of humans, is the only surprise there. Otherwise, it’s a game with excellent graphics, Relax Gaming didn’t disappoint there.
Initially, we discover a series of Royals that borrow their design from the Art Deco style. Five of them are used, Ten to Ace. The other symbols, of increasing value, include the whiskey glass, a gramophone, a diamond headband, the female pig, and the pig male.
You are looking at a Relax Gaming title, and a slot machine of excellent quality, but that’s not unusual for them. The Money Train series, or slots like Napoleon & Josephine, Tiny Terrors, Kluster Krystals, these are examples of popular titles from their collection that you should check out.
How To Play It
To start playing this slot, you should first decide on the wager that goes into the next round. A $0.20 minimum can be used, but you can also spend up to $50.
In terms of gameplay, the base experience is not that different from what you might’ve seen in other Megaways slots. 6 reels are present, and as you get 2 to 7 symbols for each one, you could play with up to 117,649 active ways to win.
One of the major features that are added, the expanding wild is particularly interesting. It takes over all other symbol positions of the reel (2 to 7, depending on the random number that the slot decides on), and then it gains a multiplier so that it counts as that number of icons (up to 7x multiplier).
Whatever wilds land, will be collected in a special piggy bank. The more that land, the higher the odds that you will get one of the other features to trigger. It’s a random event though,
If you get the free spins, there will be 10 rounds available. 2 more rounds are offered for each scatter that lands on the reels. At the same time, this removes one of the Royals, so there are fewer symbols left. The Royal in question is replaced with a higher value symbol.
Wild Re-Spins may trigger with up to 5 wild reels available in a single round. Each wild comes with its own multiplier.
Another one is the Great Pigsby Re-Spin, which adds the top symbols on regular icons, for a chance at multiple big wins.
Finally, a Megapays bonus game can randomly trigger, and it could lead to one of the progressive jackpots being paid. The Mega is your target, with the Major Jackpot also a good one. The Midi and Mini Jackpots are far less interesting. The feature uses a single spin, where a chosen special symbol needs to appear as many times as possible. 15+ special symbols visible will get you the Mega Jackpot.
Besides the progressive jackpots that I mentioned above, The Great Pigsby Megapays is also capable of paying up to 20,000x the stake through its other features and winning combinations. I like the 96.19% RTP, though the high volatility is not as fun (but expected for a game like this).
The Great Pigsby Megapays is not a typical Megaways title, which is a good thing for it. We’ve seen hundreds of games by now, using the same 6 reels, so getting new mechanics is good.
