Review of When Pigs Fly

There is a certain Bugs Bunny feel in this video slot due to the cartoon-style graphics in this seventh slot launch from NetEnt in 2016. Pigs that go to space is not an immediately obvious theme, but it works to perfection in this new slot machine. The mechanics of the game are borrowed from the classic Reel Rush slot, and feature expanding reels, and of course many fun ways to win.

When Pigs Fly is no longer available to play anywhere...

So, if Reel Rush was one of your favourites, then you certainly will like When Pigs Fly. The only thing that feels like a drawback for us, is that on this slot there is a higher minimum stake than most other NetEnt games. It is actually no less than £0,50 per spin, however on the other hand, the recurring re-spin feature gives us a well paid free round, and the return to player being 97,0% does indeed alleviate this high minimum stake quite a bit.

It also means that free spins on this slot have a pretty high value, since they are usually granted with the lowest possible stake. So, we will certainly keep an eye out for these and keep you posted in our news feed.

Game mechanics and symbol value

Perhaps the most extraordinary thing with the When Pigs Fly slot machine, is that one spin can cost from £0,50 and go all the way up to £100. That is rather high for a minimum stake as most of us will realize. Certainly for a NetEnt slot it is high, and you should be very aware of this fact when you start spinning. As you will see a bit further down, you may get quite a bit in return for your spin too.

Maximum pay out is set to 480 000 coins

The most valuable symbol is a pink sticker displaying the text “When Pigs Fly”. This is followed by the pig, which seems to be the same pig guiding you through the game on the lower right. After this follows the female pig, the rocket displaying the text BAR, the three green balloons (landing balloons, perhaps?) and finally a helmet with wings on it. Seems Asterix stopped by.

Re-spins count down to free spins

As we mentioned earlier, the game plan is borrowed from Reel Rush and is largely built upon re-spins. Hence, you win on combinations of equal symbols on close reels from left towards right. In conclusion, the actual position of the wheels in question does not matter. The game plan consists of five reels and five rows, but in the first round some of the reels are hidden. For every win you will get a re-spin and this is what unlocks certain reels, makes them visible to you, and increases winning combinations:

  • On the first round, there are 34 different winning combinations
  • After your first re-spin, it goes up to 135 possible winning combinations
  • The next re-spin takes it up to 401 winning combinations and so on, and so forth

Every re-spin takes you closer to the launch of the rocket which will give you 8 free spins. The space mission starts after 6 re-spins with all the reels visible giving you 3125 winning combinations!
