When Pigs Fly Slot Game Review

Do you prefer your online slots to be wacky and full of fun? If so, you should really enjoy When Pigs Fly, which is a new release from NetEnt – one of the world’s top online slot producers.

It essentially follows the story of the first pigs on the moon – you were warned that this is a pretty strange online slot – and sees all manner of porcine symbols spinning around on the reels, including, of course, the piggy astronaut himself. With a theme like this, how is it not possible to be drawn in by this fantastic online slot?

But what about the most important aspect of any slot, the prizes? Well, they’re pretty good.

While this isn’t a progressive slot, most will be pretty happy with the jackpot, which is worth 1000x your bet per payline, and is earned when five of the logo are on a payline. Even better though is the fact that many other symbols also exhibit large wins too, with both pigs and the BAR all offering some really nice chances to win. Of course, most of your prizes will come from the lower paying symbols though, and these will keep you ticking over nicely until a large win comes along. It should also be noted that this slot has an RTP of 97.00%, which is incredibly high.

There’s one other feature of this slot that really can’t be missed, and it’s the fact that the reels are hardly conventional. This is because the first and last reels only have one symbol, while the central reel has a massive five symbols. You’ll also find that the reel shape changes as winning combinations spin into view though, but more on that in the next section…

Bonus Features

The first thing to address is the changing nature of the reels, which is the biggest selling point of this slot. This works in the following way: every time you get a winning combination, you’ll receive a free respin, which will cause the reels to increase in size. The more consecutive respins you get, the bigger the reels will become. This means that just one bet can lead to multiple winning combinations, and absolutely loads of excitement.

It is possible to get a maximum of five respins in total, at which point the reels will have reached their maximum size. The fun isn’t over yet though, as getting five respins will lead to you being rewarded with eight free spins, during which the reels will remain as large as they can possibly be. This is where the 3125 ways to win comes into play, and also where the really big money can be won.

This slot also has a wild symbol, and it is, quite predictably, represented by the symbol with “WILD” written on it. But what does the wild symbol do? Well, it can substitute for all of the other symbols on the reels, and therefore help create some nice winning combinations. It only appears on reels two, three and four though, so it might not be used as much as it is at some other online slots.

There is one slight criticism to make of this slot though, and it’s the fact that there is no actual bonus round – the free spins are the closest a player will come to a bonus. Nowadays, players expect to find bonuses at every slot they play, and this might leave some feeling slightly underwhelmed when they play When Pigs Fly. Of course, it could be said that the fantastic respins make up for the lack of a proper bonus round though.
