7 Piggies Slot Review
Pigs haven't really gotten a fair shake in life. They're intelligent and can even make great pets – in fact, we've got a lady on our block who walks a teacup pig every day. While she's cute draped in a pink jersey (the pig, not the woman), I could never own one. You see the problem is I view them all through what I call “the bacon filter”. Like a wolf in an old cartoon, when I look at a pig, I just see delicious strips of streaky bacon. So it's the basic deliciousness of the pig that has doomed it never to be widely accepted as a pet. (I haven't even really started this review, and I'm craving a BLT!) 7 Piggies is a video slot by Pragmatic Play that oinks along all platforms and devices. It's lighthearted, and I couldn't help my spirits being a bit lifted when I began (despite not having a tasty bacon filled sandwich in front of me). It's framed by an idyllic cartoon farmyard, and everything about it is happy.
5 reels and only 7 paylines make up this extremely volatile slot. You may have to wait a while between your winning spins, but oh boy, when they arrive, they are fantastic! The symbols are different colored pigs each with a personality of their own. The wild is the King Pig with the Hercule Poirot Mustache, while the scatter is a barn (the only symbol for which the wild cannot substitute). I'm a big fan of Pragmatic Play control panels, and this slot is no different. Along the bottom left are General Game Settings (including Quick Spin), Mute, Info, plus Credit and Bet Displays. On the right is the all-important spin button with a plus and minus on either side to set your bet.
If you're a Free Spin fan like me, then this slot is right up your alley. 3 or more scatters scores you Free Spins. Before starting though you are presented with 3 barns which you must open, revealing the number of free spins (up to 10) and multipliers ( up to X5). These Free spins can be re-triggered, and in the end, I think I got more Free Spins and Multipliers in this game than I have in recent memory. It was really memorable!
As I mentioned, this slot is highly volatile, and that in itself is a unique feature for those in search of big wins!
The music is fun and joyous but like most slots, repetitive in the end. The graphics are adorable, and the actual performance of the game is tremendous across all devices I tested it on.
I need to finish this review quickly so I can start frying up some bacon, so here goes: I loved it! It's quirky and fun, with a fantastic Free Spins feature and plenty chances to win big! 7 Piggies is best enjoyed with some laughter and a delicious pork product.
