IGT bring their much love land-based video slot to mobile, but will this Smash the Pig slot game be the same smash hit?
IGT have decades of slot machines in the back burner that they can turn into mobile phone slots anytime they want.
And one of those is this piggy game, which plays on the idea of having lots of cash, in a world where the coins have a piggy Abraham Lincoln, and smashing piggy banks.
Whereas the NetEnt Piggy Riches slot took this theme and made it glamorous, this Smash The Pig mobile slot feels lacklustre in comparison.
A 5×3 reel slot, you’d expect something pretty exciting for a land-based game brought to the online world.
Yet there’s really very little to report. Granted, slot themes don’t always have to be exciting, if the game play is good.
Just ask the Cool Buck slot by Microgaming. But this isn’t it.
So what exciting free spins, multipliers, re-spins and wilds do we get?
None of the above.
Instead you have what amounts to a simple click me game when you get 3 or more pigs on screen.
You (that’s right) Smash The Pig to find out what you’ve won, with every pig smashed increasing your luck meter.
This luck meter is a mystery to us. We played for hours and could never get it to fill.
Apparently, if you get to smash enough Pigs and fill the meter, you’ll then get a horde of pigs to smash.
The problem is that without those pigs, you don’t get much more out of this IGT phone slot.
And maybe Vegas casino players get the simple charms of this Smash The Pig video slot, but honestly, we’re not sold.
This Smash the Pig mobile game is ok, just not good enough for anyone but hardcore fans.

Pay Both Ways: These 20 paylines pay from left to right and right to left. Which means more frequent wins, but generally nothing much more than your bet back.
Pick A Bonus and The Luck Meter: Get 3 pigs on screen and you'll get to pick from them to win a multiplier of up to 20x your line bet, smash all pigs, or end the round.
If you smash enough pigs, you fill the luck meter which allows you to smash even more pigs, till your luck runs out.
It just almost never happens.
The original brick and mortar machine might have been something glorious when it was launched, but the Smash The Pig slot on mobile doesn't make us want to break open our piggy bank.
Mostly it's because the graphics and sounds are old fashioned, and doesn't really compare to so many other iPhone and Android slots on the market.
That said, it's not bad video slot game, it just doesn't thrill even with it's pays both way reels, with the likes of even the average Balloonies Farm having bigger top possible wins.
