Piggy Fortunes is a bit of a generic name for a slots game, so we’ll tell you that this one is actually themed on the fairytale story of the three little pigs and the big bad wolf, which for some reason appears to be the single most popular story among the slots designing crowd. Can you amass a fortune before the wolf huffs, puffs and blows your bankroll down? The Piggy Fortunes slots game plays in pretty typical fashion: It’s a 5-reel, 25-payline slot game without a progressive jackpot.
You’d think that the familiar story would provide enough material for symbols in the Piggy Fortune slots game, but this is not quite the case. The highest-paying symbols are the classic houses of brick, wood and straw; the big bad wolf serves as the wild, though seemingly clashing with the happy stuff otherwise found on the reels.
And rather than include other elements from the story, the designers of the Piggy Fortunes slot instead went for the cliché of the A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols to fill out the set. We suppose that the piggies got some time for a few hands in between alternatively building homes and subsequently fleeing them.
Instead, the porcine trio makes up a single symbol, the free spins-launching scatter icon.
Three or more scatters win the player free spins – but that’s just the beginning of a highly engaging and exciting bonus round. Here’s the way it works: Three scatters or more launches the round, but the number of free spins is potentially infinite.
The symbol set and gameboard don’t change, so the wolf icon stays wild. However, whenever a wolf wild substitutes in a winning combination involving one of the piggies’ houses, that house is “blown down.” Once the baddie “blows down” all three types of houses, the free spins end. BUT if a winning combination involving one of the houses lands during free spins without a wild involved, that house is “build” back up. Thus may the lucky (and hopefully long-lived) player potentially win infinite respins.
Theoretically, yes. Like the freak run at the blackjack, baccarat or craps table, one may certainly whip off a huge win within the Piggy Fortunes slot’s free spins, but the odds (no matter how much in your favor) will eventually turn against you. Let’s just hope that comes after the industrious little piggies have withstood several attacks by that naughty wolf; here at Fortune.Games, we cheer against the House…
