Rich Little Piggies Meal Ticket Base Game and Features
Rich Little Piggies Meal Ticket is a 5-reel slot with 25 fixed pay lines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols land from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.
The minimum bet available here is £.€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £.€24 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. Rich Little Piggies Meal Ticket has a theoretical RTP of 95.97%.
In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbol here is the Porkchop Logo, followed by the Blue and Pink Biggy Banks, Safe, and Gold Bars. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and Ten. Wilds substitute for all symbols except Blue, Red, and Yellow Piggy Coins.
During any random base game spin, Mystery symbols in the form of Gold Question Marks can appear on the reels.
When they land, they will reveal the same High or Low-paying symbol, including Wilds. In addition to this, Mystery symbols can also reveal Blue, Yellow, and Red Piggy Coins on top of a replaced symbol.
Sat above the reel set are 3 Blue, Yellow, and Red Pigs. Each time a Piggy Coin is revealed, it will be added to its respective Pig above the reel set.
Any combination of Piggy Coins may trigger the Free Spins round and award 1x your bet. If a Blue Piggy Coin does not trigger Free Spins, then it will add +1 Free Spin to the Blue Pig above the reels.
If a Yellow Piggy Coin does not trigger Free Spins, it may award an amount between 0.25x and 6.75x your bet to the Mini, Minor, Maxi, or Major Jackpot prizes.
If a Red Piggy Coin does not trigger Free Spins, it may remove a High or Low-paying symbol from play, marking it with an X. High and Low-paying symbols are removed in order of lowest to highest.
Blue Pig Free Spins
If the Free Spins round is triggered with a Blue Piggy Coin, the number of Free Spins displayed on the Blue Pig Meter is awarded, up to a maximum of 100. However, if Free Spins is not triggered by a Blue Piggy Coin, 7 Free Spins will be awarded.
Yellow Pig Free Spins
If the Free Spins round is triggered with a Yellow Piggy Coin, then each Mystery symbol may reveal a random Jackpot symbol for Mini, Minor, Maxi, Major, Grand, or Mega, which is then stored in 1 of the positions of the corresponding meter.
If all Jackpot positions are filled on the Meter, all Jackpot positions for that particular meter will be cleared and the corresponding Jackpot Prize is awarded.
At the end of the Yellow Pig Free Spins round, all Jackpot Prize meters are reset.
Red Pig Free Spins
If the Free Spins round is triggered with a Red Piggy Coin, the reel set will change. All High and Low-paying symbols that have been removed from play will be shown with an X over the symbols in the panel below the Red Pig.
In addition to this, Mystery symbols will only be able to reveal all High and Low-paying symbols that have not been removed from play.
If the Free Spins round was not triggered via a Red Piggy Coin, Mystery symbols will reveal any High or Low-paying symbol, including Wilds. At the end of the Red Pig Free Spins round, the red pig meter is reset and the Ten symbol is the only symbol that is marked with an X.
Each Free Spins round works in the same way as the base game, except Blue, Yellow, and Red Piggy Coins do not appear.
Rich Little Piggies Meal Ticket: Our Verdict
Rich Little Piggies Meal Ticket wouldn’t look out of place in a land-based casino, or perhaps even as a slot that was released a few years ago alongside older classics like Scruffy Duck, albeit the graphics are a bit more crisp here.
It certainly has a classic feel to it, but we’re not sure it has broad appeal to all. The brains of many are too hard-coded to like innovative modern games like those from the ELK and Nolimit portfolio, but there is more to Rich Little Piggies Meal Ticket than meets the eye.
It has more than one Free Spins round, Mystery Reveal and the Piggy Coin Feature, so you can’t say it isn’t diverse it its own right.
We found Rich Little Piggies to be appealing for a short time, but it lost its allure the longer we spent on it. Personal experiences and preferences may sway players one way or the other, but do we think Rich Little Piggies Meal Ticket has a lot of longevity? Probably not, but it certainly has enough to interest players when it hits the ‘new slots’ section of your choice casino upon release.
