A gang of cartoon oinkers are the stars of 7 Piggies, a farm-themed slot from Pragmatic Play. The highlight of this volatile game is the bonus round that awards an initial 5 free spins. Pick from the barns to add up to 10 more free spins plus multipliers that can boost payouts by up to 6x. Play on all devices from between 7p and £35 per spin.

A piggy farm filled with fields and windmills forms the backdrop to the reels here. Those reels feature a collection of baby, teen, vampire, princess and builder piggies. Land 5 of the builder pig for a 150-coin payout. The most rewarding symbol is the gold, king pig which is the game’s wild – it replaces everything apart from the barn scatter and offers awards of 50, 400 or 1,500 coins if you land 3, 4 or 5 on 1 of the game’s 7 paylines.

Land 3 of the barn scatter to trigger the Free Spins feature – you’ll get an initial haul of 5 free spins. Pick from the barns to add some extras though. Behind each barn are either 3, 5, 8 or 10 extra free spins or multipliers of 1x, 2x, 3x or 5x. This means you could get 15 free spins or a multiplier of 6x.

You can retrigger another round of free spins if you land 3 or more scatters during the feature – there’s no limit to how many times you can retrigger the feature meaning an infinite amount of free spins with a multiplier of up to 6x!

Visually, 7 Piggies is rather well done – as you’d expect, the game has a very light-hearted feel. That’s certainly evident in the catchy soundtrack which has a slapstick feel. 7 Piggies might look a gentle game but it’s a pretty feisty one when it comes to volatility. The variance here is high so expect plenty of lean spells. Trigger the Free Spins feature though and get a high value multiplier and the coins can quickly mount.

The theme here will be a little too cute for some players. The ranges of extras aren’t wide either with the free spins the only feature on offer. If you’re after some simple, well designed farmyard fun that still offers decent payout punch then the 7 Piggies is certainly worth considering. I would also take a look at Microgaming’s Oink Country Love and NetEnt’s When Pigs Fly.
