Peaky Pigs Slot Review 2022
Trade in your 9-5 job for a life of crime as we become the newest member of the Peaky Pigs gang, in Peaky Pigs from Games Global partner, Snowborn Games!
Snowborn Games is back with another animal-themed instalment and this time we are pairing up with a group of piggy-gansters in a slot similar to that of Cat Clans, but will it be as successful?
It’s pretty obvious from the title that Snowborn Games got their inspiration from the hugely successful British television series Peaky Blinders which shines through nicely in the design, but instead of people the main characters here are pigs.
Let’s play on and find out!
Peaky Pigs Base Game and Features
Peaky Pigs is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbol types land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€25 per spin, with a small variety of betting options in between the two. Peaky Pigs has a theoretical RTP of 96.09% and a maximum win capacity of 20,000x.
In terms of symbols, all High-paying symbols fall to piggy members of the Peaky Pigs clan. Both the Red and Orange pig symbols (Tommy Hilpigger and Ricky Ribs) have the highest pay value, followed by the Green and Blue pig symbols (Sam the Ham and Billy Bacon).
Low-paying symbols fall to the Beer, Horseshoe, Razor Blade, Boxing Gloves, Broken Bottle and Knuckledusters. There is also a Wild symbol present which substitutes for all other symbols except Scatters.
Wild symbols play an important part in the base game and Free Spins round. Each time a Wild symbol lands, it will automatically take on a Wild Multiplier between 1x and 5x which is then applied to all winning combinations it is a part of. If multiplier Wild Multipliers contribute towards a win, then all Multiplier values will be added together and applied to the win.
Piggy Pots Bonus
During the base game, High-paying pig symbols may appear with a Gold Coin attached to them.
Once this happens, the Gold Coin(s) will be collected and added to the Piggy Pot at the bottom left of the screen. Each time a Gold Coin is collected, there is chance of triggering the Piggy Pots Bonus round.
Once the Piggy Pots Bonus is active, each of the High-paying pig symbols is drawn 1 of 4 Jackpot Prizes: 15x, 40x, 150x and 5,000x your current bet.
The round starts with 5 Free Spins and the aim is to collect as many High-paying pig symbols as you can during this time. At the end of the round, the Pig symbol that has landed the most number of times wins and awards the Jackpot Prize below the respective winning pig.
Peaky Pigs Free Spins
Landing 3 Scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 3 Respins.
During the Free Spins round, any Wild symbols that land in view will lock into their position and remain in place for the duration of Free Spins, resetting the Respins Meter back to 3.
Once a Wild becomes sticky, for every new Free Spin after this a stick of Dynamite will appear which increases the Multiplier value of 1 random Wild symbol by x1, up to a maximum of x9.
Peaky Pigs Bonus Buy
For those outside the UK you may benefit from a Bonus Buy option.
Snowborn Games has granted players access to the Free Spins round for a total of 50x your current bet. The RTP when purchasing Free Spins increases slightly from 96.09% to 96.22%.
Peaky Pigs: Our Verdict
Snowborn Games has tried various mechanics and techniques in their slots and its got to be said that the Multiplier Wilds that become sticky in Free Spins is definitely the most effective in our opinion, which has been proven once before in Cat Clans.
We aren’t suggesting that Cats of the Caribbean or Masters of Valhalla isn’t equally as good but going by our love for The Dog House and Sticky Bandits Trail of Blood, this kind of feature really draws you in and grabs your attention.
Sticking to what they know works, Snowborn Games has also thrown in their traditional Jackpot Prizes that can be awarded through a seperate Piggy Pots Bonus in the base game, although the Jackpot Prizes aren’t as glamorous as Cats of the Caribbean for example but we certainly won’t turn our noses up at them either.
Although classed as a Free Spins round, the main Bonus awarded through Scatters is more like a Hold & Win round in our opinion which is evident given that you recieve 3 Respins. This is quickly overlooked however once the round begins and you focus on landing those sticky Multiplier Wild symbols.
In terms of statistics, Peaky Pigs has a solid 96.09% RTP and an even better maximum win capacity of 20,000x up for grabs. It’s hard to say whether Peaky Pigs is capable of such potential but it’s definitely worth giving it a go to see for yourselves.
