Magic Piggy Base Game and Features
Magic Piggy is a 5 reel slot with 19 fixed paylines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The minimum bet available here is £/€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. Magic Piggy has a theoretical RTP of 96.19% and a max win cap of 7,500x.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol here is the Gold Pig, followed by Diamonds, the Horseshoe, Plums, Lemons and Cherries. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten. Wilds substitute for all High and Low-paying symbols from the paytable.
Magic Piggy & Magic Hat
The Gold Piggy symbol is a special symbol that has the ability to reveal either a Wild or a Bill symbol when activated by a Magic Hat symbol.
Once active, all Magic Piggy symbols will transform into the same High or Low-paying symbol from the paytable. When the Magic Hat symbol lands in view, it will first show what the Magic Piggy symbols will turn into and then transforms into the same revealed symbol.
Bill Stack symbols are special Cash Prizes between 1x and 1,000x your current bet. All values of the Bill Stack symbols are added together and the total amount is multiplied by your current bet.
Once a Bill Stack symbol is revealed, there is a chance that a Magic Piggy symbol will reveal a special Multiplier Coin symbol instead.
Multiplier Coins will always reveal a random Multiplier value between x2 and x5, which then multiplies between 1 and 5 Bill Stack symbols with the revealed value. The same Bill Stack symbol can be multiplied numerous times by the same Multiplier Coin, or by different Multiplier Coins.
Magic Piggy Free Spins
Hacksaw Gaming are up to their usual tricks with not 1 but 2 exciting Free Spins rounds to play with. More on these below!
Landing 3 FS Scatters across the reels triggers the Pig Bonus round, awarding 10 Free Spins.
During the Pig Bonus, special Star and Super Star symbols come into effect. Each time a Star or Super Star symbol lands, they will award Piggy Points above the reels.
- Star Symbol – Adds between 1 and 5 Piggy Points to the meter above the reel where it landed.
- Super Star Symbol – Adds between 1 and 5 Piggy Points to all reels.
If the Magic Hat symbol lands in view, an equal number of Magic Piggy symbols will be added to random reel positions on the corresponding reels. After each Magic Hat trigger, Piggy Points will be reset.
Filling the entire Piggy Points meter above all reels during this time will award an additional +10 Free Spins. Alternatively, landing 3 FS Scatters across the reels will award an additional +4 Free Spins.
Landing 4 FS Scatters will automatically trigger the Epig Bonus round. If the remaining number of Free Spins is less that 10, the remaining number of Free Spins is reset back to 10. Otherwise, the remaining number of Free Spins will remain unchanged.
Landing 4 FS Scatters across the reels triggers the Epig Bonus round, awarding 10 Free Spins.
The Epig Bonus works in the same way the Pig Bonus does, only difference is that Piggy Points will not reset after a Magic Hat trigger.

Magic Piggy: Our Verdict
One thing, in particular, we admire about Hacksaw Gaming is that they never release the same recurring themes. Switching from dark to light-hearted themes is something we’ve come to expect from Hacksaw Gaming, which caters to a range of different players.
It’s evident which category Magic Piggy fulls under, with bright colouring and adorable little Piggies on display. The theme is only one part of the game of course, but what did we think about gameplay?
Magic Piggy has the Hacksaw Gaming stamp on it, with similar features and modifiers we’ve seen in many of their previous titles.
The Magic piggy and Magic Hat feature is a great distraction whilst you wait for 1 of 2 Free Spins rounds to land. If you play your cards right, the Magic Piggy may just magic up a decent 1,000x Cash Prize.
Hacksaw Gaming has also catered to players within Bonus Buy territory, with up to 5 options to choose from. Without this, players will have to stick it out if they want to see a Bonus in play, and we all know how brutal Hacksaw Gaming titles can be in that regard.
