Play’n Go Releases Piggy Bank Farm Online Pokie
Did you own a piggy bank growing up? We did and we loved it. The boffins at Play’n GO must have been piggy bank owners judging by the release of Piggy Bank Farm.
Piggy Bank Farm is the latest online poker machine from the Swedish specialist Play’n GO. This year has been terrible and we needed some fun and laughter to balance out the negativity. Piggy Bank Farm brings this to your computer and mobile device in bundles.
Piggy Bank Farm Fundamentals
This new, fun pokie launched on December 29, making it one of the newest machines out there. Not all online casinos offer Piggy Bank Farm just yet, but they should because it makes you smile.
It takes place on a 5×4 layout with 50 fixed paylines. We love 5×4 layouts because the majority of new pokies use the tried (should that be tired?) 5×3 setup.
Play’n GO combine those 50 paylines with an RTP of 96.29%, or a house edge of 3.71%. This plumps Piggy Bank Farm in the average category for modern pokies. Volatility is set to high, which isn’t to everyone’s liking, but we didn’t notice long periods of winless spins during our test playthrough.
Pokie players of all bankrolls are well catered for down at the farm. You can bet as little as $0.10 per spin or as much as $100 per spin. With a maximum win per spin of 5,000x, this means you can win from $500 to $500,000.
Piggy Bank Farm Symbols and Payouts
Play’n GO have done excellently in their presentation of Piggy Bank Farm. The game takes place in a farmyard, as the name suggests, and the symbols are all farm-related.
Royals make up the lowest-value symbols. The tens through aces look like they’re made from wooden fences, adding to the farm experience. These pay up to 1.6x for landing five symbols.
Farmyard animals are the higher value symbols and they have decent payouts. The cow, for example, awards a 24x payout for landing five matching symbols on any of the 50 paylines.
A farmer represents the Wild symbol, which also pays out handsomely. 50X your bet hits your account if you manage to land five wilds. This symbols substitutes for all symbols with an exception to the scatter.
Gold pig coins are those scatters. They land on reels 1, 3, and 5 and trigger the free spins round. A hammer can appear on Reel 5 which also starts the free spins round.
|Symbol||Three symbols||Four symbols||Five symbols|
|Tens and Jacks||0.10||0.20||0.40|
|Queens and Kings||0.20||0.40||0.80|
What Are The Bonus Features
Piggy Bank Farm’s bonus features revolve around free spins. It would have been nice to see more features added, but the free spins do have a twist to them to keep them fresh.
Two types of free spins are available. Let’s start with Piggy Bank Spins. The hammer landing on reel 5 triggers this hold and win free spins round. All symbols except pigs are removed and they lock into place when they land. You have an unlimited number of spins, but lose a one of your three lives if a new pig doesn’t land.
Pigs can merge into 2×2, 3×3, and 4×4 clusters which increases the prize inside. 5X4 is the largest it can go, which pays out 500x.
Regular free spins happen if you land three scatters. This gives you eight free spins but the Piggy Bank Spins can trigger during them. There’s more chance of this happening because hammers now land anywhere.
Landing more than one hammer symbol in a spin increases the prize multiplier. This goes as high as 10x, meaning you can win a 5,000x prize if you make a 5×4 mega pig!
We thoroughly enjoyed playing Piggy Bank Farm. The symbols are fun, as is the music, and there weren’t any long period of not winning.
The higher value symbols have decent payouts, but they are something of a rarity. This is because of the high volatility so to be expected.
The two free spins features are potentially lucrative and seem to land frequently. Our playthrough didn’t yield a huge payout, however. We played with $1.00 spins and 22x was the biggest prize we hit.
Give this pokie a few spins and you won’t be able to not smile. Hopefully, you’ll be luckier than we were.
