When Pigs Fly, anything can happen. Or more precisely, more wins as the reels expand from 45 to 3125 ways in a flurry of free spins.
This When Pigs Fly mobile slot isn’t totally original, in as much as it uses the same game mechanics as one of our favourite NetEnt games Reel Rush.
But, that doesn’t mean it’s not a joy to play – in fact it’s nice to know that you have an alternative slot machine to play if one or the other doesn’t pay out.
The design and style is eerily familiar, and we couldn’t quite place it until we thought back to our Ren & Stimpy watching days, or Spongebob Square Pants, depending on your generation.
It’s cartoony, simple, and not without charm, as the space pigs do everything they can to launch into the stratosphere.
The way this happens is that every time you get a win on this When Pigs Fly slot, you get a free re-spin and the diamond shaped reels open up.
The first win increases the reels from 45 to 132 ways to win, then the second win gives you 405 ways to win… and so all, all the way till your 5th win where you get 1875 ways to win.
Because you get all those little free re-spins opening up the board, one spin can last a surprising amount of time. It’s the same reason that the Gonzo’s Quest slot is so popular.
More importantly, on that 5th re-spin, you then trigger 8 free spins with 3125 ways to win, providing a whole chain reaction of possible wins in this When Pigs Fly video slot.
Mostly, you’ll be happy with around 20x to 30x your bet. But we’ve won 50x and even 80x our total bet on more than one occasion to truly feel like we’ve been sent into space.
Personally, we prefer the theme from Reel Rush which feels a little more thought out, but honestly, that won’t stop us from playing.
And with a 97% return to player rate, you are sure to love these high flying ridiculous pigs.

This gives you 3125 ways to win, and more chances at catching some awesome 5 of a kinds.
We love how the music and sounds create a build up of excitement as you watch one little win lead to a chain reaction of wins as the reels open up.
This When Pigs Fly mobile slot isn't a complicated machine by any means, it basically just gives you re-spins and free spins, but that doesn't matter.
The excitement comes with acquainting yourself with a familiar NetEnt Touch machine that has a totally different theme.
Much like how the King of Slots game is still a lovely homage to the always great Jack Hammer slot.
