    Many of us know the slot from NetEnt called Piggy Riches. Immediately when entering the game you are met with the lavish pigs in front of their mansion - Lady Pig and Gentleman Pig. The original game is highly entertaining and so popular that it has become an iconic slot machine. 

    Because it’s so loved among payers, NetEnt has decided to make it into a Megaways™ game. So is it worth trying out the new version? We will give you all the information you need right here.

    What is Megaways?

    Piggy Riches was originally developed and designed by Red Tiger. Red Tiger was, however, acquired by NetEnt so that may be the reason behind the remake. The game launched on January 23rd 2020, so it is still a very new addition to the market. Even though many players know the theme very well, they still have to familiarise itself with the new gameplay and feel of the game. 

    You might be asking why NetEnt wants to make practically the same game twice. No worries, we can answer that. Piggy Riches has a theme, which is the one we recognise by the luxurious and humourous piggies. But when looking at the new version they definitely added some changes, and you will experience a major difference in gameplay. Taking into consideration that the original version is now quite old, some updates were much needed. 

    In the classic Piggy Riches slot you will find 5 reels and 15 paylines. The Piggy Riches Megaways slots does not work quite like that. Here, you will see that there are a lot more opportunities to land fruitful winning combinations. 

    The updated version has 6 reels, which each can hold up to 7 symbols, and with up to 117,649 ways of winning it's easy to figure out why the game is a Megaways™ version. 

    The system makes it possible to get multiple wins in a row, which really shows if you are lucky to get the free spins feature. Here, you have chances of the number of free spins continuously multiplying.

    The same Piggy Riches?

    The game takes place on the lawn in front of Lady Pig and Gentleman Pig’s huge manor. It’s evident that this couple is not of the frugal type. If you know the game well you will quickly be able to see that the visuals are quite different from the original version, even though it’s the same theme. When it comes to the symbols no changes were made. 

    • Low paying symbols - Numbers or letters
    • High paying symbols - gold card, piggy bank, purse, car keys. The bag of loot is the most valuable symbol, which you only need 2 of to get a winning combination
    • Bonus symbols - Lady Pig is a Scatter and Gentleman Pig is a Mega Wild symbol

    The game will have an RTP of 95.71% and there will be a max payout of 10,474x. Piggy Riches Megaways™ is definitely a slot machine, that is worth trying out. Especially is you like the original one, but we are also certain others will enjoy it very much.
