Bringing home the bacon is not an easy task. But with Piggy Riches mobile slot the bacon is diamond encrusted and smoked in pure gold.
The theme for this little NetEnt Touch game is odd at first. You can’t deny it. But then making animals into people is nothing new. The best way to describe the Piggy Riches Touch mobile slot theme is how you’d imagine Miss Piggy (from the Muppets) parents living it up. They have a gold credit card, bag of money flying out and high card symbols encrusted with diamonds, fur, mahogany and crocodile skin.
It’s a little silly and ridiculous, but at least you’ve not joined the eastern European Mafia like in Microgaming’s High Society slot. If you have to create a get rich quick theme, making it fun is the safer route.
Much like the high class, these little piggies can be temperamental. But thank-fully, not very complicated. Piggy Riches slot game only has two features. Mr Piggy who is wild and comes with a 3x multiplier and Lady Piggy who is the scatters and gives free spins and multipliers.
Both are great. Mr Piggy, in particular, is a god sent, helping stretch your budget and giving you some decent 10x to 20x your bet wins in the base game to see you through.
But it’s when these two come together that this mobile game really shines.
Here’s where the real riches hide. The more Lady Piggies you get, the more choice of free spins and multiplier you’ll get up to a maximum of 26 free spins and 6x multiplier. 95% of the time you’ll only get 3 scatters however, and your choice is 22 free spins with a 2 multiplier, 15 with 3x and 9 with 5x.
Plus every-time the scatter shows up during the free spins, you’ll get an additional free spin. Generally expect around 3 to 5 extra free spins. You can see why we would automatically go for the higher multiplier. Because if you add the wild who gives you a 3x multiplier automatically and you start to do the maths… those are very nice numbers indeed.
Let’s not fool ourselves. We’ve played this game plenty of times and whenever we hit the free spins we’ve at times walked away with little over 5x our bet. Generally 30x to 40x is a good round. So more conservative players who don’t want to risk it all might want to stick to the middle of the path free / multiplier option. 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier is still great and is more likely to help keep your budget steady.
Ultimately the choice here is what brings this Piggy Riches slot machine out of obscurity and into NetEnt greatness. Are you willing to risk it all to bring back home that glittering bacon?

Wilds: Mr Piggy is the wild symbol and throws cash into the air every time he is used to create a winning line. That will no doubt be because he comes with a 3x multiplier, which is how you'll get the big wins in this game. He does not replace the scatter symbol.
Scatters and Free Spins: Lady Piggy is the scatter symbol and she enjoys the finer things in life. Specifically free spin rounds with multiple choice.
3 scatters gets you a choice of:
4 scatters gets you a choice of:
We've not hit 5 scatters, but NeEnt says that that maximum you can get is 26 free spins and a 6x multiplier. If you get this incredible feature, we would love to know the results.
What's really nice about this bonus feature is that whenever you get one scatter symbol on the reels, you'll get an additional free spin on top; much like the well loved Mega Fortune mobile slot.
So even if you go for the higher multiplier, you can generally expect at least a couple more free rounds, usually not more than 5 or 6. We did manage to get an additional 13 free spins once though, which got us a sweet 65x our bet.
We have to admit that personally we've never won huge on Piggy Riches mobile slot. That said, we've heard and seen plenty of winner stories with players winning 200, 300 or even 500 times their bet on this game.
So we know it's possible.
However, ultimately, this video slot is simple fun with a great free spins round that is pretty unpredictable. So you might want to set your eye sight on a lower goal so you don't avoid being disappointed. You'll enjoy it more and if you do hit the jackpot, we give you permission to buy a bigger piggy bank.
