When Pigs Fly Slots - NetEnt
ABOUT WHEN PIGS FLY SLOTS
We are happy to say that in a world full of slots with generic themes, NetEnt is ready to put its weight behind something silly and unique like When Pigs Fly. A medium variance, 5 reel game, it breaks free from expectations not only with how it looks, but also how it plays. The slot does away with Scatters, and features a uniquely expanding reel each time you land a win thanks to the Respin bonus option NetEnt’s newest release offers us.
Set on a planet where pigs have mastered space flight, you and a porcine astronaut spin the reels and prepare to fly to space in your large rocket. And while the theme is delightfully silly, the symbols themselves do not follow along. Instead, we have a mixture of icons. Lower paying symbols include 10, J, Q, K and A. Higher paying icons feature a winged helmet, green balloons, a bar of soap, a pig pilot, a pig astronaut, and a sign with the game’s title written on it.
HOW TO PLAY
The reels are set up in a cross variant, and expand with each successful spin. Each win triggers a respin and expands the reels slightly, allowing you to chain wins and grow to a full 5 rows. After adjusting the bet level and coin value, take a spin and see where your luck takes you. Optionally, make use of the Autoplay feature and set it to your liking.
Wilds come often in When Pigs Fly, and will usually be the chief contributor in most wins. They only appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, and substitute for all other symbols in the slot. They are represented by the word WILD written in bright pink letters, catching your attention immediately.
The expanding reel design is great, but it works in tandem with other bonus options that NetEnt’s newest release offers us. While the Scatter is missing from the game, it is hardly noticeable.
After chaining five re-spins in a row and expanding the reels to their full size, When Pigs Fly activates a bonus round. You are given 8 free spins on the fully expanded reel, while the backdrop changes into outer space viewed from your rocket. When this special feature is triggered, the game will even play a little cutscene to help transition you into the new design.
The ever expanding reels and wins chaining off of one another gives a lot of potential for massive payouts, and NetEnt’s newest release shows off a mighty $480,000 for the luckiest players. That said, luck will be very needed, as large wins are hard to come by in the game. While the RTP is 97%, it is a medium variance slot. Wins will come often, but they will be small.
WHEN PIGS FLY ON MOBILE
There is little to say about the slot’s mobile version. It is a competent port, and it certainly does not lack any polish. All the features of the existing game are implemented, and the gameplay is functionally the same.
The only real change is in the user interface, which has been shifted around to accommodate smaller screens and touch capability.
