The Great Pigsby Megaways Overview
Relax Gaming released a game called The Great Pigsby in 2019 and a follow up in 2021 called The Great Pigsby Megapays. That last one was a Megaways game with 4 different jackpots. Now they have removed those jackpots and made only small changes and released The Great Pigsby Megaways.
Of course the game is a nog to The Great Gatsby, but somehow this game also feels a lot like Piggy Riches by NetEnt, but that’s probably because of the pigs.
The reels of this game are set against a giant mansion at night. And everything also looks like it is playing at night.
This slot game uses 6 reels that are between 2 and 7 symbols high during each spin. This setup can give a maximum of 117.649 ways per spin.
There are standard card symbols and all sorts of old Hollywood movie themed symbols together with a female and male pig. Wild symbols can appear on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. There are no scatter or bonus symbols on this game.
The Great Pigsby Megaways comes with a pretty big maximum payout of 20.000 times your bet.
The Great Pigsby Megaways Features
Wild symbols landing on the reels will expand and cover the entire reel. These will also come with a multiplier of between 2x and 7x.
Also wild symbols will be collected and added to the piggy bank on the top of the reels. At any point, at random, this piggy bank can break and award one of the following three bonuses.
Between 2 and 5 random reels will become wild. With a random multiplier of between x2 and x7 on each wild reel. After this the reels will stop spinning.
Great Pigsby Respin
During this spin only Great Pigsby symbols appear (the highest paying symbol, male pig). Before the reels stop spinning between 3 and 9 random Great Pigsby symbols are placed on the reels.
Free Spins Feature
You are awarded with 10 free spins. Free spins now come with a special scatter symbol. Each time one or more of these special scatter symbols appear, each one will award you with 2 extra free spins. Also the lowest card symbol is removed and replaced by a random medium to high paying symbols during each spin.
When all low paying symbols, 10, J, Q, K and A have been removed and will be replaced by a random medium to high paying symbol, the scatter symbol only adds 2 more free spins.
I have to say, I really enjoy this game.
I think the theme is fun. And I also like the multiplier wild reels.
And normally I don’t like bonuses that need to be triggered at random. But somehow the bonuses on The Great Pigsby Megaways seem to trigger quite often, so I don’t mind it.
The bonuses are also nice. Of course the free spins feature is the best. But the other two can give some great wins too.
Relax Gaming released a very nice Megaways slot that I would definitely give a try.
