Our expert rating
The Piggy Gangsters video slot was released in April 2020 by Betixon, the studio responsible for games such as Buffalo Dust, Chicken Ninja and Phoenix Ashes. The slot is a low volatility game, which means that players can expect more frequent, but smaller, wins than with some similar slots. This game has a fairly respectable Return to Player (RTP) rate of 96.0%, which is about average, though there are definitely slots out there with a much higher RTP.
Unsurprisingly, this video slot has a gangster piggy theme, with the aim being to help the little squad of piggy gangsters rob the bank and win a big prize. The graphics, animations and soundtrack are all high quality and tie in nicely with the overall theme. The game loads and plays well, and is a fairly simple slot, with a straightforward style of gameplay. The bet range is rather good, with a minimum stake of just 0.30 required and a maximum limit of 30 coins.
The game has five reels, four rows and a total of 1,024 ways to win. There’s the chance to win 60x your stake, so while you won’t get the huge wins that you might on other slots, the game is certainly well worth playing. Piggy Gangsters features Wilds, Scatters, Multipliers and the chance to win some free spins. The game is fully optimized for use on all mobile, desktop and tablet devices. Players can enjoy Piggy Gangsters for free, playing in demo mode.
The Piggy Gangsters slot game features nine regular symbols, including six low-paying card symbols and three high-paying symbols, which are the three pigs, so these are the ones that you are really looking for. The police piggy is the second most valuable symbol in the game and can win you between 30x and 50x your stake. The piggy gangster is, understandably, the highest-paying symbol in the game, with a potential payout of 40x for three of a kind, or up to 60x for five of a kind. The lower-paying symbols are worth anything from 2x your stake (for three of a kind) up to 20x your stake (for five of a kind).
Here are some of the features that we found interesting when we tried out the Piggy Gangsters slot game.
There is, of course, a Wild symbol in Piggy Gangsters, which is the hat. Like any Wild in any slot, it can stand in for all other regular symbols to greatly improve your chances of landing a winning combination. The Wild appears randomly on all reels.
There is also a Scatter symbol in Piggy Gangsters, which is the razor blade. If you land three or more scatters anywhere on the reels, you will be instantly rewarded with a set of free spins.
Landing three, four or five scatters on Piggy Gangsters anywhere on the reels takes you straight to a free spins round, with 10 free spins awarded initially. Each win in the free spins round will be rewarded with a further random multiplier.
As with many slot games, Piggy Gangsters has an autospin feature that can be set to spin the reels automatically for you, up to 50 times.
As with most virtual slot games, you can play Piggy Gangsters in demo mode. This means that you can play for free, just for fun, though you won’t, of course, be able to win any real money. Playing the free version of Piggy Gangsters allows you to get a feel for the game and see if you enjoy the various features. If you do, you can always switch to the Piggy Gangsters real-money mode and see if you can win some actual cash.
We found Piggy Gangsters to be a fun, straightforward slot with simple gameplay. There is nothing too complicated with this game. Simply pick your stake, spin the reels, and keep everything crossed for those scatters, free spins and multipliers. Although Betixon has kept things very simple in terms of features with this game, the theme is quite fun, and a little different from many slots on the market right now, and the overall user experience is a high-quality one. With a minimum stake of just 0.30 per spin and a maximum of 30 coins per spin, this title will appeal to slot enthusiasts of all levels.
