Piggy Fortunes is one of several Microgaming slot machines that have been created based on the story of the piggies and the big bad wolf. The story follows the choices made by three little piggies, each one creating a house. It seems to be designed to show a kid how important it is to make things well, as the piggies which made their houses out of straws or wood lost them to the big bad wolf, while the brick made house resisted. It’s got wilds, bonus games, scatters and multipliers, but it’s not as impressive as the other slots which offer this theme. You have here 5 columns with symbols, 25 lines forming on them. The best prize gets to $7,500.
Betting and Prizes
25 lines have to be kept active at all times, so the game needs you to have 25 coins in the minimum bet. The maximum one can get up to 375 coins, since each line accepts wagers of up to 15 coins. The coin bet range is from $0.01 to $0.20, so you have a line bet which reaches $3 and a total that is at $75.
It’s not that grand of a prize, but it’s still a good target to have, and the top jackpot can still put $7,500 in your pocket. It will come from a prize worth 2,500x the line bet, with up to 37,500 coins to be won.
Piggy Fortunes Slot Features
The one acting as the wild element is the Wolf, quite a natural choice for this particular slot machine and the story that’s behind it. Use the wild to replace any other symbol, but don’t expect this one to be capable of taking the place of the Piggies scatter.
The Piggies appear together in one of the symbols, the scatter which is allowed to pay you no matter in what positions its symbols have landed. You get paid for 3, 4 or 5 scatters, and the rewards will be at 5x, 20x or 100x the bet value.
On top of the prizes, you are also given a feature called The Big Bad Wolf. During this feature, should the Wolf appear next to a house icon, it will blow down all houses of that type. The appearance of at least three Piggies scatters will rebuild one of the houses that were destroyed. The Wolf wild applies multipliers of 2x to 4x as well, depending on which house is blown down at the moment. If you get all your houses blown down, then the feature ends.
Theme & Design
It’s inspired by a popular story, and it has all the right symbols present, but the quality of the graphics doesn’t come close to what its direct competitors have. There are at least two other games with superior graphics and even better features out there. The symbols have the three houses, the piggies together, the wolf and a couple of poker cards.
Piggy Fortunes slot mostly relies on that bonus game with its free spins to keep you entertained, and in some cases it might be enough. Keep in mind though, its’ not the only slot to have this theme, and it’s not the best one of its kind.
