Pigasus Slot Review
Slingo have launched another new exclusive game. This time it’s a 5 reel 20 payline slot called Pigasus! Now we’re not sure where they picked the name from but according to Wikipedia Pigasus was “a 145-pound domestic pig who was nominated for President of the United States as a theatrical gesture” back in the 60s. We’re pretty sure there’s a political joke in there somewhere given today’s occupant of The White House.
However, Slingo’s Pigasus has a farmyward theme! Among his friends are a sheep, a cow – which actually looks more like a giraffe – and a triangular purple angry bird reject. There’s also a wild toucan thrown in for good measure. The graphics are simple but really good and stand out on a grassy background. Farmyard noises fill the air when you’re not spinning but when you do spin there’s a jolly little tune to accompany your game play.
Stakes range from 20p to £50 a play but we couldn’t find a auto play feature.
The main feature of Pigasus is a free spins round. This round which gives unlimited free spins (but limited lives) is activated when you get 3 or more free spins symbols on the reels. The number of lives and multiplier options depends on which free spin symbols get you to the bonus round.
One unique feature of this game is the bonus respins option. If you get two free spins symbols you’re given the option to purchase a respin on a single reel in order to try and trigger the bonus. When we played the respin was offered to us at £1.64 which was x8 our wager. We opted to not take up this offer so have no idea whether it was a good deal or not.
Another unique feature of Pigasus is random wild multipliers. These give you the chance to win x2, x3 or x10 any win line.
We took Pigasus for a spin at Slingo and it didn’t quite do it for us. First off the wins were very sporadic – and rarely over a few pennies when wagering at 20p. Only the arrival of the wild multiplier meant that we actually won more than our stake! The free spin feature never materialised but twice we were offered the chance to buy a respin at x8 our stake. Given we were only banking pennies at 20p a spin, playing bigger stakes just didn’t appeal.
Innovation in slots is always good, but if the game doesn’t grab you or at least make you feel you’ve a chance of winning, then that innovation is lost. Hopefully you’ll have a better experience should you choose to give Pigasus a play.
