Microgaming’s creation, now live at Spin Palace, goes by the name of Piggy Fortunes, and the game is inspired by a tale that many slot enthusiasts remember from when they were young. The children’s fable was about three pigs who chose to build their houses out of straws, sticks and bricks, hoping to fend off the bad Wolf. Only the third pig was successful and when his nemesis failed to blow away his house, he tried to infiltrate it through the chimney but fell into a pot of boiling water and met his demise.
Some things have remained the same but many have changed in Piggy Fortunes slots, as the wolf can easily blow down all the three houses. On the bright side, death is not definitive in this slot game and both the pigs and their archenemy are resurrected time after time and the action resumes. A thick wood was chosen as a background for this slot game, with the animations being consistent with the theme. The 25 pay line slot game allows players to bet the maximum fifteen coins per pay line, with all the symbols being crafted with attention to detail.
The most exciting moment of the game is when the Big Bad Wolf feature kicks in, and in order for it to be triggered players will need to discover three identical pig signs. The Wolf will start blowing down the houses, with the awarded multipliers depending on the type of material the structure is built of. The top payout is the result of the wolf symbol substituting other signs to create winning combinations, with the profits increased five times. Whenever the wolf succeeds in blowing down a house, at least three pig symbols can appear to rebuild it and the feature continues at Spin Palace.
