Not necessarily an unusual choice for an online slot, considering that the Chinese culture-inspired theme is always seen on online slots.
Launched just earlier this year, a few months back, this game offers insane levels of fun excitement.
For this game, Booming came up with a standard setup, which has 5×3 reels with 20 active lines. Depending on how high you set up the water, you could be looking at a jackpot worth $200,000 (500x the stake). On its list of features, I discovered wild symbols, scatters, multipliers and a Wheel of Fortune which turns into free spins.
BETTING AND PRIZES
$0.20 to $400 is the wager value that may be selected for a single round of Golden Lucky Pigs. This allows for up to $20 wagered per line, but the minimum bet will use only $0.01 for each one.
With wins of up to 25x the stake paid on the best lines of this slot, there are rewards of 500x the stake possible with regular symbols alone. Up to 4x multipliers can be applied by wilds obtained during the free spins though, so the potential of the game can definitely be improved, perhaps even up to 2,000x the stake.
GOLDEN LUCKY PIGS SLOT FEATURES
I’ve discovered some features which are common, but there are some improvements there as well, so they’re not going to be completely boring to play through.
Among the regular options, expect to find the option of the regular wild, which can be used as a replacement for a symbol that’s trying to form a combination on the line where it’s present. It’s not a scatter’s replacement, and it doesn’t pay directly, so those would be its main limitations. The image selected for it is that of a simple Wild logo.
A Wheel of Fortune symbol may appear on the reels as well, and this is going to be your scatter. Having it appear three times on the reels, will mean that the Wheel of Fortune bonus comes next. The Wheel spins and gives you a number of free spins, up to 10 available from it. Once the free spins feature starts off, even a single Wheel scatter will spin to give you additional free spins (up to 3 additional rounds).
Another advantage of the free spins is that they come with multiplying wilds. The wilds now have the ability to boost wins they help form by up to 4x, depending on the number written on them (2x, 3x or 4x). These multiplying wilds are available only for the free games.
THEME & DESIGN
For its theme, the game relies on the same Chinese/lucky element that we’ve seen in many of the slots which focus on that part of the world. The angle which makes it somewhat of a more unique option is the focus on the Year of the Pig. It uses three pig characters as high paying symbols, plus Royals, logos, a Wheel of Fortune and golden pigs. It’s an OK looking design, though not something that I would consider myself impressed with.
