About Piggy Bank Farm Slot
The setting for Piggy Bank farm is a good ol’ all American farm, with the smooth sounds of banjo helping to set the scene. The only difference here is that instead of real pigs you get piggy banks! The reel set is made of wood and the grid is translucent so you can see everything that occurs on the farm, with sheep eating grass and birds flying around. The background might be pretty easy-going but the action on the reels is typically high risk from Play n Go, as you will find out in this review.
RTP, Variance and Top Payout
Yes, indeed, this is another high-volatility game coming from Play n Go’s Creative kitchen, so do not expect regular payouts. Truth be told, Piggy Bank Farm is not as ultra-high variance as some of their other releases but nevertheless the wins won’t come thick and fast – expect some dry spells and wait for the free spins and multipliers to kick in before anything spectacular happens.
The RTP of Piggy Bank Farm is a solid 96.29%, whilst the top payout is set at 5,000x bet, which is not as high as the top payout in Golden Osiris, for example.
Symbols and Paytable
It is time for us to meet the farmer and all of his animals, which act as regular symbols. The cow is leading the group, followed by a sheep knitting a sweater. The dog is there to keep them safe, while the rooster inspects the quality of eggs.
The farmer is the Wild and the top-paying symbol of the game, delivering 50x bet for five of a kind. The cow will get you 24x, while sheep, dog and rooster deliver between 4x and 12x. Playing cards made of wood act as low value symbols. The pig coin Scatters trigger free spins, while the hammer triggers the Piggy Bank Spins. The piggy bank icon can cover the entire screen.
Gameplay and Features
The Piggy Bank Farm is a quiet place where you can enjoy nature, rest your eyes on a lovely landscape, and benefit from a couple of additional features, called Piggy Bank Spins, and Free Spins.
Piggy Bank Spins Feature
The feature in question is triggered every time you land a hammer on reel five during the base game. Once that happens, all piggy bank symbols that are present on the reels will remain locked on their positions.
Players get three lives and the reels start to spin. Only piggy bank symbols appear on the grid. If you land a new piggy bank, lives reset to 3. The feature ends when you lose all your lives or when you fill all cells with piggy banks, whichever comes first.
If you get piggy banks on adjacent positions, you can form 2×2, 3×3, 4×4, colossal symbols. If you are lucky enough to form the biggest 5×4 mega tile, you will win 500x bet.
Free Spins Feature
Get Scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5, and you will trigger the Free Spins feature. Players get 8 free spins and the hammer symbol can now land anywhere on the reels. It still triggers the Piggy Bank Spins feature every time it lands.
Apart from the Piggy Bank Spins feature, hammers can deliver multipliers up to 10x. This happens if more than one hammer triggers Piggy Bank Spins at once. Thanks to these tasty multipliers, players can pocket up to 5,000x per spin.
Piggy Bank Farm is a fairly mediocre new release from Play n Go. There is nothing ground-breaking in the visuals or gameplay to make it a stand-out slot like a Reactoonz or a Book of Dead. However, the attractive design and pretty regular feature drops still have the potential to make this into a popular slot release in 2021. If you do decide to take this one for a spin then aim to hit the free spins round and boost any wins with big multipliers. That is the most direct route to getting anywhere near the 5,000x top prize.
