Created to mark the start of the Chinese Year of the Pig, iSoftBet is joining the celebrations with The Fortune Pig. This bright and colourful slot is played using a 5 reel, 25 payline game engine and comes with stacked wilds, free spins with synced reels and cash respins where money pouches can deliver big rewards. Play on all devices from between 25p and £25 per spin.
Many Chinese-themed slots are dominated by red and gold. The Fortune Pig is a much more colourful affair. With traditional buildings and dancing dragons in the background, the ornately designed purple reels are filled with brightly coloured symbols. Joining the lower value A to J royal values are gold coins, a money tree and a drum. The best of the standard symbols is the golden dragon which awards 16 times your stake if you land 5 across payline.
The golden Fortune Pig of the title is the game’s wild. This spins in stacked formation and can hit on all 5 reels. It substitutes for everything apart from the scatter and money bag symbol and delivers awards of 2, 10 or 20 times your stake if you land a 3, 4 or 5 wild combo. The Fortune Pig comes with a few bonus features.
Fortune Free Spins feature – this is triggered by landing the figure of 8 style dragon on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. You’ll then be awarded 8 free spins. These are played using the In Sync Reels feature – anything from 2 to all 5 reels can sync on any free spin. The only downside is that you cannot win more free spins.
Cash Respins feature – you’ll need to land 5 or more of the red money bag symbol to trigger this round which awards 3 respins. Look out for the money pouches which come with cash values attached. Each time a new money bag lands the number of respins resets to 3.
When no more respins are left, all the money bag amounts are added together and that’s what you’ll win. If the Fortune Pig lands during the respins, it clears all the money bags from the reels, allowing plenty of room for new ones to drop in and replace them.
We liked The Fortune Pig. The visuals are bright and bold and the soundtrack has proper earworm potential. We’ve seen the features plenty of times before but the free spins with synced reels and the streak style respins certainly have their charms. You can win up to 801 times your stake during the Cash Respins feature. In the Fortune Free Spins feature, there’s a maximum of 500 times your stake per free spin on offer.
If you fancy the marking the Chinese New Year festivities, then The Fortune Pig is a very decent place to start. I would also recommend you try Play ‘N Go’s Chinese New Year. I would also suggest you try other iSoftBet offerings with Jumbo Stampede an excellent option.
