Cash Pig Slot Review
The use of piggy banks is pretty much unknown these days, but before banks came along you needed somewhere to store your hard-earned shekels.
These original earthenware or clay pots had slits on top where you could deposit your coins. Some bright spark probably looked at them and thought they resembled a porker and given that the type of clay used was called pigg, the rest was history, I guess.
There’s this whole idea that pigs represent greed, but I like to think of my corkscrew-tailed bacon as smart and enjoying its money.
So, let’s explore that notion and live it up in Cash Pig slot from Booming Games.
The Cash Pig is all about the good life. He’s made Las Vegas his home, but traveling in style is how he rolls.
Ferraris and private jets are on the reels, along with Rolexes and diamond rings. He likes his trappings of luxury so much, he even has gold versions of all of these… because he can!
I’m going to gush a little over the design of this game because it deserves it. Booming Games has made the imagery so incredible, it seems to leap off the screen. And what the design does is add to the feeling of opulence. Hats off, studio people!
The grid is a 5x4-reel setup, and there are the usual Booming controls which are always rather subtle yet still functional.
Despite how amazing the game looks, it doesn’t have the best RTP, as this comes in at just 95.11%. If you’re not up to the Cash Pig’s level of extravagance yet, you can start betting at €0.30 or go straight to €36 if you’ve got money to burn.
Cash Pig slot comes with a high volatility, so we can expect far less frequent wins, but they should be impressive when they do come in.
The diamond Wild substitutes for all other symbols, except the Scatter, Gold Coins, or the Piggy Bank Collect symbols.
Speaking of Gold Coins, these can land anywhere during the base game and they can also be stacked.
You’ll notice that these coins have different values. To win the combined value of all the coins in view, you’ll need to land the Piggy Bank Collect symbol on reel 5.
Land 3 or more champagne Scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 and you’ll be gifted no less than 12 Free Spins.
During the Free Spins round:
You can grab an additional 6 Free Spins if you land another 3 Scatters on those same reels. I managed to rack up 24 Free Spins during one session.
If minor symbols form a winning combo, these will be removed from the reels and new symbols will take their place (meaning more opportunities to win).
Major symbols that are involved in winning combinations get upgraded to their gold version. And that means they’ll pay double their normal value. I managed to upgrade ¾ of my major symbols – you can keep track of this in the bar on the top right of the grid.
When you’re wallowing in the big bucks, like our porcine hero here is, you’ll want to make sure things run smoothly. And I’m happy to report that they do.
Their catalog is developed in HTML5 which means it runs perfectly on all devices and browsers.
Considering how the Cash Pig loves the finer things in life, it’ll probably come as no surprise that this game’s top prize is a very healthy €288,000. Bringing that in is the 8,000x multiplier.
Cash Pig slot has been well put together and it looks spectacular – that compliment extends to viewing it on a mobile device.
Despite the not-so-great RTP, the max win is top-notch. In terms of features, it all centers around Free Spins and chasing the elusive Piggy Bank Collect symbol.
But while you’re running after it, it’s handy that you can upgrade your major symbols and that there’s a Cascade feature.
The Piggy Bank feature does feel like a bit of an add-on, but it dovetails in with the game's theme. And let’s be honest, no one will sneer at the chance to win all the coin values.
Yeah, it’s a cool game and gets a thumbs up from me.
