If someone offered you the chance to be obnoxiously wealthy but the catch was that you had to transform into an anthropomorphic pig, would you do it? It would seem that a prominent politician in the United States has enthusiastically embraced that bargain in recent times. Red Tiger Gaming is betting you would with the launch of their Piggy Riches Megaways slot, a sequel of sorts to an old Net Entertainment game, Piggy Riches. It might just let you experience life as a rich pig while trying to transplant some of that wealth into your real-life wallet.
Piggy Riches Megaways is a 6 reel video slot that features the Megaways slot mechanic. The Megaways mechanic is licensed from Big Time Gaming and sees the paylines for the slot changing with every spin of the reels, depending on how the differently sized symbols fall down. Icons in the game include low-payers such as 10, J, Q, K, and A as well as high-paying symbols like piggy banks, a purse full of cash, keys to a mansion, a gold coin, and a sack of gold coins and gems. The game also has a male and female rich pig, both of which have a special feature in the game.
Speaking of features, the game has wilds, stacked wilds, scatters, free spins, and win multipliers. These all pop up on the reels randomly, but in my experience, they tend to hit at nice intervals. The features and layout of the game give Piggy Riches Megaways a posted return to player percentage (RTP) of 95.7%, which is typical for a Red Tiger game, thopugh a little lower than other modern deveopers. There are other video slots with the Megaways mechanic with higher RTPs, and if you're purely looking for value, you may want to search elsewhere.
I will say that I enjoyed this game despite not being enthralled by the theme, as the cascading feature adds a lot to the game. Here you see winning symbols removed and replaced with more icons from above, potentially letting you see multiple wins on a single reel. If you're a fan of cascading reels and/or Megaways slots, this game is one that you may enjoy.
