Piggy Bank Farm
The wombat says: Here’s some trivia: the Piggy Bank Farm slot from Play’n Go is the sequel to Piggy Bank which was released back 2014.
So, what does this updated version have to offer us, Wombat fans? Other then the fact that I was getting my guitar out to strum to that good ol’ country music. A catchy ear worm, that one!
According to the blurb, the 3 progressive jackets have gone and the max bet has been doubled. Thankfully you can still smash piggy banks to smithereens with hammers which is all this wombat really cares about. Let’s play!
Look and Feel
Play ‘N Go takes us on a trip to the farm. And why not? It’s better than another visit to Ancient Egypt. And cool looking animals are always a hit. Just look at the Bonus Digger slot machine or me for example.
Wooden buildings, fields of crops, cloudy skies and orchards make up background to your reels. And there are also some nice animations with birds flying around and crops swaying in the breeze.
To sum up: Cool cartoon antics and a banjo-based soundtrack. Good job lads! Let’s stick this game in our fun toon section along with the Lucky’s Fish and Chips slot and others.
Piggy Bank Farm slot has a 5 reels, 4 rows and 50 pay-lines and you can place your bets from 0.10 – 100.oo credits per spin. Well, we have just come off the Foxpot slot with one pay-line so that’s lines a plenty!
Now to the pay table!
High value symbols include a cow waving, a sheep knitting a jersey, the piggy bank logo, an inane dog (someone give that mongrel a drink!) and a proud chicken with its egg.
The 10, J, Q, K and A from the playing card deck are your lower values. The highest paying symbol is daft cow, who will pay out 24x your bet for 5 in a row. Mooooo!
The farmer is Wild icon in the game and will substitute for all other symbols on the reels to make up more winning combos for you. Meanwhile the gold coin and the hammer are the bonus symbols and will set off the games’ 2 features.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Piggy Bank Respins
If you land the hammer icon on reel 5, it will trigger off this bonza bonus.
Now you’ll get 3x re-spins, any piggy bank symbols already on the reels will become sticky, while the rest of the symbols disappear. In fact, the only icons that can land on the reels are more piggy banks and empty spaces.
Hit 3x piggy bank symbols and your re-spin tally will reset to 3. If you land Piggy Bank icons stacked, they’ll transform into mega pigs – with chunkier pay-outs.
When your re-spins are over the pigs will pay out these prizes according to their size:
1×1 Pig: 1x
2×2 Pig: 2x – 7x
3×3 Pig: 20x – 30x
4×4 Pig: 100x – 150x
4×5 Pig: 250x – 500x
Hit 3x of the gold coin scatter symbols on reels one, three and five and it’s 8 free spins for you! If a hammer icon lands on any reel during the spins you’ll set off the re-spins, and if multiple Hammer symbols hit then you’ll get a 1x multiplier for each of them.
This is applied to the total winnings when the bonus is over – not just a line win. Cheers Play’n Go!
