The Three Little Piggies are back, this time as a crew of pirates which are facing off against the Big Bad Wolf. The setting may have changed, but obviously the premise remains the same one. It’s a Red Tiger Gaming slot machine, so you know already that it’s going to be an exciting release visually.
It’s not just the theme that will stand out, the layout is also quite unusual, offering 6 reels of 4 symbols each and a total of 40 active paylines. Wins of up to $80,000 are possible in a single round of Piggy Pirates, while feature wise you’re looking at a couple of options, mostly wild symbols and walking bonus icons which may result in unlimited free spins.
Betting and Prizes
The game area is big enough to offer even more, but Piggy Pirates will have 40 active lines, requiring a similar number of coins to be used. Betting starts from the minimum of $0.20, where each line would receive $0.005, and it can reach a maximum bet of $40, with the line bet at $1.
Your regular combinations will pay 2,000 coins, offering at most $2,000 each. The free spins make it possible to have a screen filled with wild symbols, which is how you can get the most out of the slot, which promises to pay up to $80,000 at that point.
Piggy Pirates Slot Features
It’s clearly not a standard slot machine, though it has its regular elements as well inside.
To start with, expect for wild symbols to be present in the game and to be as useful as ever when they do appear. Taking the form of Gold Coins with pirate signs on them, the wilds are substitutes whenever their position allows for it. Even better, have six on an active line, and you will get a cash prize from them directly, worth 2,000 coins which will make it the best paying symbol of the slot.
The three little piggies, the main characters of the game, aren’t going to be seen that often on the reels, since they’re bonus symbols and each one can only appear once. You get these Piggy Pirates in random positions on the reels. Whenever they appear, they start moving to the left side, one reel at a time. They will stay in view for several rounds usually, giving you a chance to land the other two Piggies you need to trigger the Unlimited Free Spins. You need all three Piggies at the same time, to get that feature.
Once the conditions are met, you trigger Unlimited Free Spins, and these free rounds will continue for a while. You get Wild Coins on the reels, and you collect them through the Piggies. Once you reach the final spin, the Wild Coins which have been collected are then released back to the reels, at the same time. That should make the final spin your most valuable round.
Theme & Design
The story of the Three Little Piggies is a popular one, even among slot machine developers, several high quality titles using this particular theme. Red Tiger Gaming decided to do something different with it, and they turned it into a pirate game that looks like a lot of fun. You have the Piggies and the Wolf in the game, though rare to the sight, and most of the time you will see Gold Coins, Treasure Chests, Money Bags, Rum Bottles, Treasure Maps, Anchors and four card suits with cross-bones style designs behind them.
Piggy Pirates looks impressive visually, is telling us a fun story and it has a unique layout which is complemented by fun features. It’s a game to try out, for sure, particularly since it has a potential of 2,000x the stake as well.
