NetEnt’s original Piggy Riches slot proved to be very popular in New Zealand and all around the world. For this reason, the game producer giant decided to team up with Red Tiger Gaming and create a remake of the game applying the Megaways mechanics licensed from Big Time Gaming. The graphics have certainly become better, but the same cute characters await you when you play Piggy Riches Megaways at Guts casino. The 6-reel game now comes with 117.649 ways to win, and piggies are indeed the symbols of luck, so it is worth a shot trying out this slot.

Cartoon-type game with a fun soundtrack
The Piggy Riches Megaways slot comes with the cascading reels system. Many Guts pokies have this mechanism, whereby winning symbols disappear off the screen, and new symbols fall into their places to potentially make even more wins for the player.
Pigs are the symbols of wealth in many cultures, and this is evident in this game. The background is an elegant garden with two pig fountains on each side. The lower-paying symbols of the game are playing cards royals A, K, Q, J, and 10 but the five higher-paying symbols are even more interesting. They all depict luxury and wealth: a piggy bank, a wallet full of cash, a set of car keys, a gold credit card, and a money bag. 3 to 6 same symbols from left to right will land you wins.
A special feature of Piggy Riches Megaways is the Mega Wilds. These Wilds cover the entire reel and carry a multiplier of up to 7x. The maximum number of Mega Wilds you can land in the same spin is three. They substitute for all other symbols and can help you create winning combinations. Having multiple Mega Wilds as part of a winning combination lets you multiply those multipliers so quite large wins are possible here.
To get to Free Spins, you’ll need to land 3+ Lady Pig Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You’ll spin a wheel to determine how many Free Spins you’ll get (up to 22 Free Spins are available) and where your increasing multiplier will start (they can be anything from 1 to 10). Upon every win at Free Spins, the multiplier will increase by one. Landing Scatters during Free Spins will award you additional Free Spins.
Piggy Riches Megaways’ RTP is 95.71% which is not a particularly high figure. This high volatility game pays out less often than other online slots but comes with a high potential maximum win.
This game was the first game that the NetEnt-Red Tiger Gaming duo created, and it has proved to be very successful. The graphics have become better, and the maximum win figure has also improved. The gameplay is entertaining so if you liked the original game, chances are you’ll love this one.
