The Great Pigsby Slot Review
Taking it’s inspiration from The Great Gatesby, The Great Pigsby is a 5 reel 243 payline slot from Relax Gaming. The star of the show is Pigsby who enjoys the high life during the booming 20s. The game has free spins, wild reels, The Great Pigsby Spin and The Piggy Bank Wild Collection features. However does this slot deliver or do all roads lead to The Great Depression?
How To Play The Great Pigsby
The slot is set on the set of a mansion house. The title of the slot alongside a golden piggy bank atops the mansion whilst silhouetted piggy figures dance the night away. The images are respectful of The Gatesby era and the reel icons include gramophone, champagne and jewellery. Diamond encrusted card symbols – 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower value symbols. Pigbsy and his Lady are the high value symbols.
Wagering on the slot starts at 20p but this can be boosted to a maximum of £200. Autoplay options are available and include loss limits, single win limits and win limits. Additional options include switching off sounds and music. The Great Pigsby is optimised for play on mobile, tablet and desktop.
The Piggy Bank
The Great Pigsby has no bonus or scatter symbols but there are features including free spins and wilds. Any wild landing on the reels expands to cover the whole reel and is collected into the piggy bank. Every wild collected in the bank you the chance of triggering 10 free spins or 1 wild reels re-spin. In every second spin during free spins, a low value symbol type will be replaced by a mystery symbol. The low value symbol will become one of the mid or high value symbols each spin.
During the wild reels re-spin feature, 2 to 4 of the reels will turn wild before the other reels stop. Reel 1 can never turn wild. During each spin, there is a chance of triggering the Great Pigsby feature. During this feature a number of the highest value symbol are placed on the reel area before the reels have stopped, and the reels are enriched with this symbol.
The Great Pigsby takes an interesting subject and adapts it to the porcine world. The images are great and the everything fits in the Art Deco glamour of the roaring 20s. The lack of scatter and bonus symbols is unusual so you just never know when the features will drop in. Overall it’s a nice slot to play but it’s not one that’s going to set the world alight.
