Piggy Bank Megaways Slot Demo Gameplay
Piggy Bank Megaways Slot Review 2022
Hammers at the ready! It’s time to smash open those ceramic piggies and count up your pennies in iSoftBet’s latest release, Piggy Bank Megaways!
A wise man once said ‘Take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves’ which is a quote that most of us choose to live by today and doesn’t necessarily have to be about money, although in this case that’s exactly what we mean.
We’ve all done our fair share of saving over the years, whether it be for a family holiday, new car or just for a rainy day should you need it, but did you know that 1 in 10 people in the UK have no savings at all? Not really surprising given the last few years.
Piggy Bank Megaways is a Hold & Win slot that makes use of Big Time Gaming’s Megaways mechanic, meaning more frequent wins via Cascades and even bigger potential.
Will Piggy Bank Megaways be the payday we’ve been looking for? Let’s play on and find out!
Piggy Bank Megaways Base Game and Features
Piggy Bank Megaways is a 6 reel slot with up to 117,649 ways to win. In order to form a winning combination, you will need to connect 3 or more (or 2 or more of the highest paying symbol) 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 £/€200 per spin.
Like most Megaways titles, Piggy Bank Megaways features Cascading Reels. Each time a winning combination is formed, all winning symbols will be removed from the reel set and new symbols will drop down via a Cascade. Once a Cascade occurs, there is a chance that even more winning combinations will form.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in Piggy Bank Megaways is the Logo, followed by the Pig, Cash and Hammer. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Nine. There is also a Wild symbol present which substitutes for all symbols except Scatters. Wild symbols only appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Piggy Bank Megaways is quite a classic Megaways slot which lacks in any kind of base game features. This can be seen as a good or a bad thing depending on the type of player you are, but will the Piggy Rich Cash Respins round have just the right amount of excitement and thrill?
Piggy Bank Megaways: Piggy Rich Cash Respins
Landing 5 or more Coin Scatters in any position on the reels, triggers the Piggy Rich Cash Respins round.
The Respins round will start with 3 Respins (Luck Meter) that will reset each time a new Coin Scatter lands in view. All Coin Scatters (including those that triggered the round) in view will become sticky and will remain fixed in their position for the duration of Respins.
During Respins, the total number of Megaways active during the initial trigger will be locked for the Respins round. Each of the 6 reels will have a Piggy Meter directly above it, filling the entire reel with Scatters will activate a Multiplier.
In addition to this, keep your eyes peeled for 3 Jackpot Scatters that can randomly land on any of the reels.
- Mini – Awards 10x your current bet.
- Major – Awards 25x your current bet.
- Mega – Awards 50x your current bet.
Piggy Bank Megaways Bonus Buy
For those outside the UK, you may benefit from a Bonus Buy option.
The Piggy Rich Cash Respins round can be purchased for a generous 50x your current bet.
Piggy Bank Megaways: Our Verdict
Piggy Bank Megaways is well-constructed, as is every slot from iSoftBet, but it’s not a flagship title by any means.
iSoftBet seem to be intent on sticking with the Hold & Win Formula as late, and by throwing it together with a Megaways slot once again they’ve given Piggy Bank Megaways a certain appeal that fans of both mechanics can enjoy.
The Base Game can feel devoid of any kind of real excitement after a little while, but Free Spins does well to pick up the slack, bringing players back to the edge of their seat if good megaways and LOTS of symbols land.
Long-time players and fans of iSoftBet might notice a similarity between Piggy Bank Megaways and Aztec Gold Megaways. Everything but theme is pretty much the same, but we must say, despite Piggy Bank’s chic visuals, we think we prefer Aztec Gold Megaways
In terms of potential, Piggy Bank Megaways looks rather impressive with 12,000x win potential, which is a respectable figure that makes Piggy Bank Megaways worth a spin on that alone.
Overall, Piggy Bank Megaways might not break records, but break enough Piggy Banks and you’ll respect it as a dependable title from a provider who knows what they’re doing.
