Piggy Bank Megaways Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

Reels/Paylines: 6 reels + up to 117,649 ways to win

Stakes Range: 20p to £20 per spin

RTP: 95.98%

Max Win: 12,000 x bet per spin

The Piggy Bank Megaways slot is played with 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win. Every reel will contain between 2 and 7 symbols each. Randomly determined, the more symbols per reel determines how many ways to win (or Megaways) are in play. For the full 117,649 Megaways to be in play, you will need to land 7 symbols on each of the 6 reels. For more information, you can find out how Megaways slots work.

A winning combination is created when 3, 4, 5 or 6 matching symbols land on consecutive reels in any position, starting from reel 1. The only exception is the Piggy Bank symbol where only 2 are required. Winning combinations will land every 3.09 spins on average as the hit frequency rate is 32.3%.

You can spin away from 20p to £20 a spin. Beginning with the minimum bet level, click on the Casino Chip icon to the right of the reels. Once clicked on, use the plus and minus to change accordingly. For players outside the UK, you will see a Lightning Bolt icon in the bottom left corner. This enables Turbo Mode. You will also see the Auto Spins button above the main Spin button (non-UK players only) which allows for up to 1,000 autospins and loss/win limits.

The Piggy Bank Megaways RTP is 95.98% which is fractionally below the 96% online slots average. The volatility is in the medium to high category and classed as 7/10.

When it comes to exposure, the maximum win per spin is 12,000 x your total bet. Bigger wins will undoubtedly come from the Piggy Rich Cash Respins feature. This will take 158 spins on average to trigger.

With a classic piggy bank theme, the Piggy Bank Megaways slot is exactly original when it comes to source material. Other games like Piggy Riches (NetEnt) and Piggy Riches Megaways (NetEnt/Red Tiger) are 2 of the most popular examples.

With pink dominating the colour scheme, the setting is inside a vault with gold coins and safes. Graphically, it’s quite simple. The soundtrack has a rock organ feel to it and is quite upbeat. It reminds me the classic Break On Through (To the Other Side) song from The Doors.

On the reels you will see A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals. The higher value symbols are represented by piggy hammers, cash, piggy banks and the Piggy Bank logo. The Piggy Bank logo symbol pays the most with 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination awarding 0.5, 2, 5, 10 or 25 x your total bet.

Then you have the 3 Pigs Wild symbol. Appearing on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 (not the outer reels), it substitutes for all symbols mentioned. The Gold Piggy Bank Coin symbol is the scatter which triggers the main bonus feature.

Piggy Bank Megaways Mobile

piggy-bank-megaways-mobile-slot

Produced with HTML5 technology, Piggy Bank Megaways has been optimised for play on all devices. This includes mobiles, tablets, laptops and PCs. Furthermore, smartphone players will be happy to learn it’s available on devices powered by iOS, Android and Windows.

Piggy Bank Megaways Bonus Features

The Piggy Bank Megaways slot comes with 4 bonus features. With cascades and a random Max Megaways extra, the game focuses on the Piggy Rich Cash Respins feature. You get respins with scatters that award cash prizes. As well as 3 more valuable scatters, the respins end once no more scatters land.

Cascading Wins feature

Like with most Megaways slot games, there is a Cascading Wins feature. This is triggered when you land a winning combination. Every winning symbol is replaced by cascading symbols from above the reels. Basically, it allows for successive wins as long as new wins are formed.

Max Megaways feature

There is a randomly triggered Max Megaways feature. All reels will contain the maximum number of symbols (7) giving you a spin with 117,649 ways to win. The feature is found in a number of Megaways games such as Royale with Cheese Megaways (by iSoftBet).

Piggy Rich Cash Respins feature

piggy-bank-megaways-slot-piggy-rich-cash-respins-feature

The Piggy Rich Cash Respins feature is activated when 5 Gold Piggy Bank Gold Coin scatters land on the reels. You will then begin with 3 respins. If another scatter lands in view, the number of respins resets to 3. Each scatter contains a bet multiplier. There are also Mini, Major and Mega scatters which give you bigger wins:

Mini Scatter 10 x bet
Major Scatter 25 x bet
Mega Scatter 50 x bet

If you manage to fill an entire reel with scatters, a multiplier equal to the number of symbols on that reel will be activated. A 7x multiplier will be applied if 7 scatters land on a reel for example. When the respins tally is zero, all scatter prizes are collected and paid. You will then revert back to the base game.

Finally, there is a Piggy Bank Bonus Buy feature. Not available in the UK, you can buy your way into the Piggy Rich Cash Respins feature for 50 x your total bet. The RTP rate will also increase up to 97%.

Originality








The Piggy Bank Megaways slot is a tad disappointing. Previously available exclusively at Betsson Group casinos, it’s now available across all casinos. The graphics are not particular sharp and the rock/organ soundtrack does get tiring.

In terms of the gameplay, it has cascades, Max Megaways and respins with cash prizes and Mini, Major and Mega scatters. There are no free spins and the max win is 12,000 x bet per spin. I’m not quite sure what iSoftBet’s aim is as there’s nothing at all that makes Piggy Bank Megaways stand out in a very crowded market.

If you want to break the bank, and not a piggy bank, Break Da Bank Again Megaways by Microgaming is a much better option. For starters, it comes with 19,560 x bet max wins. You also have Royal Mint Megaways from Big Time Gaming which offers 41,300 x bet top payouts.

In summary, Piggy Bank Megaways is a below-par Megaways release which should have remained exclusive at Betsson casinos. Most other Megaways games offer much more.

If you want piggy action, Bankin’ Bacon by Blueprint Gaming would be my pick. With Banker Spins and cheque prizes up for grabs, there are 50,000 x bet payouts to be won.

Pros
  • 12,000 x bet max wins
  • Available to play on all devices (including mobiles)
  • Main feature triggers fairly frequently
Cons
  • No original gameplay
  • No free spins
