Theme – Audio & Design Features – try and break the piggy bank
High Value Symbol: Bank Till
Compatibility: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop
With a pig/bank theme, there’s a shiny look to the visuals in the Bankin’ Bacon slot which is typical of a release from Blueprint Gaming. The setting here is a marble bank that has just a tinge of pink. The pair of columns that flanked the reels are topped by a pair of pigs.
Accompanying the action is a jazzy soundtrack which fits the slightly retro feel of the visuals. The cartoon-style design here is nicely put together. It does look quite a lot like NetEnt’s Piggy Riches slot.
On the reels are A to 10 royals, a purse full of gold coins, piles of green bank notes, gold scales and an old-fashioned till. The bank till is the most lucrative symbol, awarding 200 x your total stake if you land 6 on adjacent reels.
The Piggy bank symbol is wild during the free spins. It can also collect extra prizes as you’ll discover shortly. The gold coin is the scatter. Landing 3 or more of these triggers that free spins feature. Here’s a list of all symbols you’ll see on the reels:
|10||3, 4, 5 or 6 = 0.3, 0.5, 1 or 2.5 x stake|

Bankin’ Bacon Mobile

Bankin’ Bacon Bonus Features
This is one of Blueprint Gaming’s more straightforward slots when it comes to features. In the normal version, there’s only 1 bonus feature which gives you free spins. It can be well worth landing if the Piggy scatter symbols does its stuff though. In the Jackpot King version, there are 2.
Banker Spins feature
Landing 3 or more gold coin scatter symbols on the same spin activates the game’s Banker Spins feature. The more scatters, the better the initial reward:
|3 Scatters||10 Free Spins|
|4 Scatters||15 Free Spins|
|5 Scatters||20 Free Spins|
|6 Scatters||30 Free Spins|
Before the feature starts, you’ll have a choice. You can decide to play your allocation of free spins with all the different value cheques in play or opt for the Mystery Choice. This awards a random combination of free spins and a single cheque value.
The Piggy bank wild symbol is the key to success. Land a Piggy bank wild and a cheque on the same spin and the Piggy bank wild collects the value attached to the cheques as an instant prize. For example, say you landed a single Piggy and a single cheque worth 8 x stake, you’d win an 8 x payout.
Things can get much more interesting if there are multiple cheques and multiple Piggy bank wilds. Say there are 2 Piggy bank wilds and cheques worth 6, 8 and 10 x your total stake. That combination of cheques totals 24 x stake. Each Piggy bank wild would collect that amount to give a prize of 48x stake.
Retriggers are possible here too. Land the Piggy bank wild on the same free spin as a green cheque and another 10 free spins are added to your total. There are no limits to the number of free spins you can win.
In some territories, players will have the opportunity to buy the free spins feature for a fee of 75 xx stake. Known as the Bonus Bet feature, you’ll then spin the Mystery Choice wheel. This extra isn’t available to UK players.
Jackpot King Deluxe Bonus feature
In addition to the standard version, Blueprint Gaming has created a Bankin’ Bacon Jackpot King slot. It’s part of the Jackpot King network of slots. With 3 jackpots to be won, this is local jackpot slot meaning the jackpots are specific to a casino or casino group.
The Jackpot King Deluxe Bonus feature can trigger at random and award 1 of 3 jackpots:
- Royal Jackpot: starts at £500
- Regal Jackpot: starts at £5,000
- Jackpot King Jackpot: Progressive and unlimited
Bankin’ Bacon Review Summary – this simple slot sizzles
There’s nothing very complicated or sophisticated on offer in the Bankin’ Bacon slot but I rather enjoyed the supremely silly nature. Visually, it’s very nicely constructed and looks like NetEnt’s Piggy Riches.
The gameplay is simple with the free spins being the main extra. A good collection of cheques can lead to big wins. With 50,000 x stake max wins, Bankin’ Bacon can pack a more serious punch that it’s theme.
If you like slots with plenty of variety, Blueprint Gaming have other games such as The Goonies Return. However, with the big wins on offer, you’ll be happy enough to join these piggies and get your nose into Bankin’ Bacon.
If you can’t enough of pigs, join the 3 little pigs in Quickspin’s Big Bad Wolf Megaways which adds the shape-shifting mechanic to the classic fairytale. It offers max wins of 30,540 x stake.
- 50,000 x stake max wins
