Play’n GO Bids Adieu to the Decade with Piggy Bank Farm
January 8, 2021
Renowned Swedish iGaming software developer Play’n GO studios recently announced its latest video slot Piggy Bank Farm. And the title offers some much-required serenity during the holiday season.
The 5-reel 4-row title leads players through a farm in search of a treasure that protagonist Farmer Joe had planted earlier and is now ready for reaping in the glorious fields of Piggy Banks.
Play’n GO’s Novel Design and Gameplay
This high-volatile slot has a 96.29% RTP with maximum payouts up to 5,000x. In-game symbols include 10-A card values, while the premium symbols are a sheep that’s busy with some knitting, a cow, a rooster admiring a golden egg, and the farmer’s faithful dog.
Landing five premium symbols pays out between 4 and 24-times the stake. While Farmer Joe, who doubles up as the game’s Wild symbol, replaces all non-paying icons. The smiling farmer also returns 50x your bet for a line of five-of-a-kind.
When the hammer or the Scatter symbol lands on the reels, it triggers the Piggy Bank spins round. The hammer only appears on the last reel. All the Piggy Banks that appear on the reel are retained when this feature is triggered. The round begins with three lives while the symbols are stuck in place to form a giant cluster throughout the duration of the round.
At the end of the round, the Piggy Bank symbols split open and reveal the prize. The bigger the cluster, the larger the prize with 500x being the highest payout. Piggy Bank Farm also flaunts a Free Spin feature. It is triggered when the scatter lands on reels 1, 3, and 5. Unlocking the round gives players access to 8 free spins. While 3 additional spins are awarded if three more scatters appear during the round.
What do the Bonus Features Look Like?
Play’n GO studios imbibed quite a few novelties to Piggy Bank Farm. The most prominent of which are the two mini-games, namely Piggy Bank Spins and the Free Spins round. The cluster pay feature is the game’s highlight and may merge the winning symbols into 2×2, 3×3, 4×4, or 5×4 mega symbols. The bonus round comes to a stop when the spins run out or the grid is engulfed by a mega symbol.
During the free spins round, multiple hammers can land on the reels simultaneously. In such cases, it creates a multiplier up to x10, which is then applied to the final result of Piggy Spins. Players wishing to trigger the game’s maximum payout of 5,000x must unlock a 5×4 sized mega symbol along with an x10 multiplier.
As with most games from Play’n GO, Piggy Bank Farm ticks all the right boxes in terms of entertainment as the developers have taken their time to sort out the nuances, right from the design and theme to the soundtracks. While farm slot titles aren’t exactly a rarity, this one has been making all the right noises so far.
