Peaky Pigs Slot Review
Having already hit the mark with Cats of the Caribbean and Cat Clans, Snowborn Games are no strangers to cute animal-themed slots. The Scandinavian developers continue that trend – but switch out the cats for pigs – in this porky homage to a certain UK smash hit TV series.
Set in a dark and gloomy street, complete with smoking chimney stacks, Tommy Guns, and a slight air of underworld, flat-capped menace, Peaky Pigs does an excellent job of replicating the atmosphere of Peaky Blinders. The tribute continues with the background music, which – whilst not quite Red Right Hand – certainly bears a passing resemblance to the Nick Cave classic, which provides the theme tune to the series.
This is, however, very much a tongue in (pork) cheek pastiche, as any threat is firmly of the cartoon variety. The developers certainly had fun naming the characters of the game, with the all-star cast consisting of Billy Bacon, Sam the Ham, Ricky Ribs, and (our personal favorite) Tommy Hilpigger.
Those who fancy a stroll with Tommy and co will find a volatile slot offering featuring Multiplier Wilds, Free Spin Scatters, a Piggy Pots Bonus Round, and a max win potential of 20,000x your stake.
Peaky Pigs Slot How to Play
Peaky Pigs takes place on a standard 5 x 3 layout with a total of 20 paylines. Wins are recorded by scoring three or more matching symbols, moving from left to right.
Lower-paying symbols consist of thematic Knuckle Dusters, Razor Blades, Boxing Gloves, Broken Bottles, Horseshoes, and Jugs of Beer – all of which pay between 1.25x and 5x your stake for five in a row.
The four gangland piggies then make up the high-paying symbols, rewarding you with 10x – 12.5x your stake for five on a payline.
The game’s Wild Symbol is a “W” overlaid onto a bunch of dynamite. Wild symbols substitute for any standard symbol to create a winning line. These aren’t just any old Wilds, either. Whenever a Wild appears in view, it will explode to become a Multiplier Wild of between 1x and 5x. Should more than one Wild land on the same pay line, the values will multiply together, creating a potential winnings boost of up to 3125x.
Not done with there, Wild Symbols create winning lines in their own right – five in a row paying out 111x your stake.
Peaky Pigs on Mobile
Those who like to game on the go will be pleased to learn that Peaky Pigs is available to play on both iOs and Android-powered devices. Mobile users will find all of the cartoonish fun, features, and gameplay intact.
Peaky Pigs RTP and Volatility
Peaky Pigs has an RTP of 96.09%. That’s slightly over the industry average but do note that this is a customizable RTP slot. As always, we recommend checking the info section of the game to discover the RTP setting at your casino of choice.
The game falls into the high volatility category. On average, you will need to endure longer sequences of low-paying and dead spins, but when you do hit a win, it may be particularly rewarding.
Peaky Pigs Slot Bonus Round and Free Spins
Piggy Pots Bonus
During the base game, any spin may see one of the porcine criminals overlaid with a small gold Coin Symbol. This coin will fly off into the Golden Piggy Bank located towards the bottom left of the layout and – If your luck is in – trigger the Piggy Pots Bonus Feature.
The Piggy Pots Bonus Round awards five free spins, with each of the four swine stars being assigned one of four prize pots; 15x, 20x, 200x and 5000x. A tally keeps track of the number of times each pig appears on the reels during free spins. At the end of the round, you will be handed the corresponding prize pot of whichever pig appeared the most. All regular wins pay as normal during the Piggy Pots Bonus Round.
Pocket Watch Free Spins
Every good 1900s gangster needs a pocket watch, and in the piggy underworld, the Pocket Watch Scatter Symbol is the most coveted of all. Land this symbol on reels 1, 3, and 5, and you will be oinking your way into the Free Spins feature.
You are handed three free spins to begin with, but this total will reset to three each time a Wild symbol appears on the reels. All Wilds become Sticky Wilds during the feature, meaning they will remain in place for the duration of the round. The fun doesn’t stop there, as each free spin will see a +1 multiplier randomly applied to one of the Wild Symbols in play – all the way up to a rewarding 9x. Keep resetting the spins and racking up those multipliers, and you will be well on your way to escaping this grimy gangland with the loot.
