Piggy Bankers slot REVIEW
Piggy Bankers ReviewThe association of pigs with wealth can be traced back to ancient China, where pigs are still seen as a symbol of prosperity and abundance to this day. Of course, there are expressions such as “filthy rich” as well, and the Manson family infamously wrote ‘Death To Pigs’ on the wall with the blood of their rich victims. Pragmatic Play has certainly churned out their fair share of wealth themed slots with pigs casted in the leading roles, and Piggy Bankers is far from their worst effort.
Don’t be fooled by the glossy and somewhat generic visuals, as this is just the style you get with this developer. The base game comes with a highly engaging walking Big Wild Respins feature, where full-reel wilds collect banknote prizes from the top reel and possibly trigger the bonus round. The Big Wilds can get multiplier upgrades in the bonus round, and the respins prolong the feature as well. The 10,000x potential is twice Pragmatic’s ‘go-to’ win cap, and Piggy Bankers is well worth a closer look.

Piggy Bankers Slot Features
The premium symbols pay between 4 and 12.5 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins, and both the male and female piggy banker Wild symbols step in for any pay symbol to help complete and/or improve wins. Wilds pay the same as the top-tier golden piggy bank symbol if you land pure wild wins, and they can appear fully stacked to trigger the game’s core feature.
Piggy Bankers slot comes with a special Banknotes Reel that sits on top of the regular grid, and only blanks or banknote symbols slide in on this reel randomly per spin. The banknotes come with cash prizes of 0.5 to 100 x your stake, and there are also ‘free spins’ banknotes. You need a fully stacked wild reel directly below a banknote to get the reward, however.
The Wild Respins feature triggers whenever you land a full stack of wilds on the same reel, and the single wilds turn into a big wild that fills the reel. The Piggy Banker Wild moves one step to the right (or left if it’s the lady piggy wild) per respin that follows, until he or she moves off the grid. The respins go on as long as at least one big wild is present, and having both moving wilds active can trigger the bonus round as well.
The Piggy Bankers Bonus Round triggers either from collecting a ‘free spins’ banknote, or when the male and female piggy bankers meet during the Wild Respin feature. If there is a banknote above the reel where they meet, the prize is collected twice. You get 5 free spins either way, and you can slide in a banknote worth 1,000x your stake on the banknotes reel during the bonus round.
You can trigger the Wild Respin feature during the bonus round as well, and the respins don’t subtract from your free spins tally. In addition, you win extra spins if two big wilds meet, and this upgrades both walking wilds with an x2 multiplier. The big wild multiplier is persistent until the wilds walk off the grid, and the multiplier is upgraded by +1 each time multiplier big wilds meet.
Of course, the big wilds continue to collect banknote prizes from the banknotes reel in the bonus round as well. Keep in mind, however, that the triggering big wilds are removed when the bonus round triggers, but they are put back in action where they left off when you return to the base game. The free spins banknote will not appear in the bonus round, just to be clear.
Non-UK players, and anyone living in an eligible jurisdiction, can buy the feature for 80x the stake. It will trigger in one of the two possible ways on the spin that follows, and the organic hit rate is 1 in 204 spins. This is a fairly average hit rate according to our data.
The 200 Spins Piggy Bankers Slot Experience
You get to see the lady piggy banker big wild in action in the base game, right before we purchase the bonus round at the 1-minute mark. The feature is triggered by the male big walking wild, and you can see for yourself how we fared by hitting the play button below.
We still had Piggy Bank Bill fresh in mind when reviewing this game, due the unusual banknote completion win system. Piggy Bankers is not exactly a follow-up game in our view, but more like a distant cousin due to the similar-looking banknotes you get on the top reel. If we had to choose, we would probably go with Piggy Bankers, however, as it comes with highly entertaining features and a stronger math model. The visuals are solid as usual, but they don’t stick out as much as in the Bank Bill installment.
The Banknotes Reel is an innovative way to provide some cash prize collection action, and it’s always nice to have several entries into the bonus round. The Big Wild Respins provide plenty of extra spins during said bonus round, at least in the long run, and the wild multiplier upgrades can certainly help close you in on the 10,000x potential. The max win comes with a 1 in 11.7m hit rate, which is better than average based on our research, and Piggy Bankers is a well-balanced and engaging slot we have no trouble recommending.
