The Great Pigsby Megapays Slot Review
Relax Gaming has come up with a right porker of a slot with their new game, The Great Pigsby Megapays. This slot is an updated version of the previous The Great Pigbsy game (2019), with all the extra oomph the Megaways engine gives a slot. The reference to The Great Gatsby movie is visually obvious. So, while it is difficult to pack a whole movie’s plot into a slot game, the visual aesthetics of glitz and glam do prominently feature in the theme of the game. The colours of money, green and gold are particularly noticeable throughout this game, and rightly so, as you have a massive 117,649 ways to win! You’ll be hoping pigs can fly because if you’re exceptionally lucky, even non-jackpot wins will have you breaking the piggy bank with a max win of 20,000x your stake!
While there isn’t exactly a deep social critique on capitalism going on here, you’ll still find this slot incredibly engaging and captivating. This is thanks to features such as the exploding piggy bank that gives you free spins, respins from both wilds and the Great Pigsby Respin, and the Megapays feature’s massive progressive jackpots!
The Great Pigsby Megapays Slot How to Play
The Great Pigsby Megapays is a 6-reel slot that uses Megaways’ usual mechanic. It features 2 high-value symbols, 3 medium symbols, and 6 low symbols. There is one scatter symbol: a golden coin and one wild symbol. The slot pays out when there are 3 or more matching symbols in adjacent reels, starting from the reel that is furthest left. The minimum bet is 0.20, and the maximum is 50.0. Importantly, the wilds (which will always expand) can activate one of the three features, including the bonus round.
Like all Relax Gaming slots, The Great Pigsby Megapays is made using HTML5 technology. This means that it is fully supported on web browsers, including tablets and mobile. However, we would recommend you enjoy this slot’s extravagant graphics on the biggest screen you can – but we wouldn’t blame you for wanting to play this brilliant slot on the go!

Graphics and Theme
The slot’s theme is an unabashed tribute to the capitalist decadence typical of The Great Gatsby movie, minus the darker elements. This leaves you with the 1920s glitz and glamour, a bit of a taste of Gatsby’s (or Pigsby’s) party lifestyle accompanied by upbeat swing music. The Megaays version of The Great Pigsby is more visually polished and extravagant than its predecessor. The game starts outside an opulent mansion, in an outdoor setting that real estate brokers would probably portray as an entertainer’s dream. Muffled swing band music plays and is only amplified when you enter the estate for free spins, where the interiors’ aesthetic is even more decadent. The symbols feature porcine versions of Gatsby and Daisy (high), party paraphernalia such as a gramophone and whisky (medium) and stylised #10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace symbols (low). Finally, the Wild symbol is similarly lavishly styled text.
Bonuses and Free Spins
There are a variety of bonuses and free spins for you to enjoy in The Great Pigsby Megapays. The Piggy Bank feature causes any wilds that land on the reel to expand and get collected in the piggy bank above the reel area. Each Wild acquired increases your chances of activating Free Spins, Great Pigsby ReSpins, or Wild Re-spins.
When you activate the bonus round, you’ll receive 10 free spins, with the chance to gain 2 more free spins along with removing one of the low symbols from the reels – if you hit a scatter. The respins continue to remove the lowest value Royal symbols and replace them with non-low symbols. This can theoretically continue removing low symbols, from lowest to highest. If you successfully remove all low symbols, any more scatters will still award a further 2 free spins but will no longer remove any symbols.
The Wil Respin feature awards the play a respin where 2-5 reals turn wild before the reels finish spinning. The Wild reels have a multiplier showing how many wild symbols the reel is worth.
Great Pigsby Respin
The Great Pigsby respin places a number of the highest value symbols, Pigsby himself, over the reels before they stop spinning, allowing you the chance to win big.
In typical Megaways fashion, the Megapays feature four progressive jackpots (MINI, MIDI, MAJOR and MEGA). The Megapays feature can be triggered from any bet and gives you the chance to win any of these 4 jackpots can be won during the feature. You can increase your chance of triggering the feature by using higher stakes. During the Megapays feature’s special spin, a chosen low symbol (Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten or Nine) will be designated as the Megapays Symbol. The special spin will drop and lock into place, and a respin will occur until no more instances of the Megapays symbols or the Mega Jackpot is hit.
