Piggy Bank by Play n Go
We all remember keeping our money in a piggy bank when we were small children. Play n Go have taken this idea, and created a light hearted cheerful slot around it. The game is available online, both for mobile and desktop devices.
Piggy Bank has the usual five reels, but only five paylines. Each of these five paylines can be activated or deactivated according to your wishes. The game also has a handy Bet All button, which allows you to bet the maximum amount of coins for the maximum coin value on the maximum amount of lines. It is good to remember that the more you bet, the higher your chances are of winning one of the progressive jackpots that are linked to the game.
Piggy Bank is a happy little slot with loads of bright colours and cartoon graphics. The reels are placed in what looks like a child’s room, full of toys and other kids things. The reels themselves are pale pink and full of bright coloured symbols. All the lettering in the game has been done in a playful fond that evokes our fat mud loving porcine friends. The sound track is a bit odd although it is relaxing. Strains of what sounds almost like Hawaiian music filter through the speakers and gets backed up by louder sounds when a winning combinations is hit.
Piggy Bank Theme
The whole idea behind Piggy Bank slot is to evoke the feelings of when you were young, and thought that a full piggy bank made you the richest kid in the world. Piggy Bank slot has mostly theme based symbols, all to do with ceramic cartoon pigs and smashing them to reveal hidden money. The base symbols are taken from a set of poker cards, but Play n Go have done them up to look like piggy’s themselves, which is a nice bit of effort. Above these we have four other symbols, a hammer, some bank notes, a gold coin and the games logo.
Piggy Bank has a few special features up its sleeve. The first is the scatter symbol that looks like a pink piggy bank with a dollar sign on it and a ridiculous grin. Three or more of this guy anywhere on the reels will take you to a little pick me game where you get to choose a pig to smash. Each pig holds different prizes and possibly the chance to smash more pigs.
The games bonus symbol which helpfully says Bonus on it in large letters, is also a scatter that can be found anywhere on the reels. Three or more of this icon will take you to another second screen game, again with a bunch of pigs to smash. This time however your prizes will be determined by a luck meter that was filling up during the base game. The round is over when the luck meter runs out.
Piggy Bank is linked to the three progressive jackpots that Play n Go run for a number of online slots. To win them, you have to look out for gold rings that appear around your scatter symbols. Three to five gold rings will grant you access to one of the wheels of fortune that contain the jackpots. Each wheel also has other cash prizes and the chance to move on to the next wheel. The two higher wheels also contain not only their own jackpots, but the previous wheel’s one as well.
