Magic Piggy Overview
Hacksaw Gaming has become a pretty popular provider and they release new games on a regular basis. And now they have released another new title, Magic Piggy.
As the title suggests, the game uses a piggy theme. Which in online slot themes means money. Somehow all these pig themed games revolve around piggy banks and money.
The game uses 5 reels that are each 5 symbols high and comes with a strange number of 19 paylines.
Besides standard card symbols and gamble fruit, you will also find golden piggies, star symbols, a top hat symbol and also wild symbols. And there are free spins symbols on all reels which are needed to trigger one of two free spins bonuses.
Magic Piggy comes with a maximum payout of 7.500 times your bet.
Magic Piggy Features
Piggy and Magic Hat
There are piggy symbols on all reels, but you can also get a Magic Hat symbol.
When a magic hat symbol appears it will reveal either a wild symbol or a bill symbol and will transform into that symbol. Now all piggy symbols also appearing on the reels will also change into either the wild symbols or bill symbols.
Bill symbols have a value of between x1 and x1000 times bet. But when pigs change into bills they can also change into a multiplier coin. Multiplier coins have values of x2, x3, x4 or x5 and they multiply the value of between 1 and 5 bill symbols.
When the hat and pigs change into bill symbols, all values are added together and multiplied by your total bet.
Pig Bonus (free spins)
If you get 3 Free Spins symbols you are awarded with 10 free spins.
During free spins special stars and super stars can land. A star will add between 1 and 5 point to the meter above the reel. A super star will add between 1 and 5 points to all meters above all reels.
When the magic hat symbol appears during free spins, pig symbols are added to all reels, the same amount as number of points collected above a reel. After this all points are reset.
If you manage to fill all meters above all reels you will be awarded with 10 extra free spins. Getting 3 Free Spins symbols during free spins will add 4 more free spins.
Getting 4 Free Spins symbols will upgrade the bonus to the Epig Bonus feature.
Epig Bonus (free spins)
If you get 4 Free Spins symbols you are awarded with 10 free spins. You can also trigger this feature during the Pig Bonus.
The only difference between this bonus and the Pig Bonus is the fact that the meters above the reels don’t reset when they are used.
This slot offers several different bonus bets.
- Bonushunt Featurespins – For 3 times your bet there is a 5 times higher chance to trigger a bonus game.
- Magical Featurespins – For 20 times your bet each spin will guarantee a minimum of 3 pigs and 1 magic hat.
- More Magical Featurespins – For 40 times your bet each spin will guarantee a minimum of 8 pigs and 1 magic hat.
- Pig Bonus – 100 times your bet.
- Epig Bonus – 200 times your bet.
Hacksaw Gaming created another new slot game with a lot of options and features.
The pigs and the magic hat are fun features, but to be honest, you are hoping to get bills instead of wild symbols. Those bills can pay a lot, especially when multiplied.
Free spins features are also a lot of fun. But can also sometimes be frustrating when those magic hats hardly ever appear.
Overall it’s a fun game with fun features, even if the theme is a bit of an after thought.
