My wife likes to tell me that I'll enjoy going to my in-laws house one day. My response to that is always: "When pigs fly!" Net Entertainment is apparently making my hell on Earth become enjoyable, as they've released their When Pigs Fly video slot. The game actually is way more clever than my in-laws, and sees a bunch of pigs working to launch themselves into outer space, possibly inspired by a certain Muppet show routine!. They need your help to reach the stars. Are you up to the task?
When Pigs Fly is a 5 reel, 3125 ways to win video slot that gives a unique reel set to players. The game takes place on a space pad complete with a rocket ship, a pig astronaut, and mission control. The reel set starts out looking like a blocky plus symbol, and expands as you string together more wins and eventually hit a full-blown reel set that you're more used to. The game's symbols include regular slot symbols (10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace) and theme specific symbols such as a helmet with wings, green 7 balloons, a jet engine, a female pilot piggy, the astronaut pig, and a symbol that reads the title of the game.
The feature set in the game includes free spins, stacked symbols, re-spins, and stacked wilds. The game sets off when you manage to hit a win on the reels, which starts a countdown timer, and when six wins are put together in a row the pig jumps in the rocket and blasts off to outer space, giving players free spins in the process. This is by far the best aspect of the game as it builds anticipation and jubilance when you actually hit the free spins.
