Rich piggies ready to break the bank, doesn’t that feel familiar? It seems like slot developers can’t get past this theme as it is used over and over again. However, Pragmatic Play did manage to add a fresh take into his Piggy Bank Bills and produce a unique game.
When it comes to mechanics, it is completely different, but no worries - the money and richness is still the base for visuals if that’s what you’re looking for. With top-notch graphics and up-beat soundtrack that light up the atmosphere, it is a very attractive slot that provides a distinct playing experience.
Betting Options & Bonus Features
Set in the piles of money, the action that you can join by placing a bet between $0.20 and $100, takes place on 6 reels and 9 paylines. Spinning on reels are banknotes as symbols, but all of them are broken in half. The goal is to match two halves and make whole bills that produce wins of 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, or 1,000x the stake.
It is an innovative and completely unique concept that makes this slot with high volatility and RTP of 96.50% particularly interesting. And so is the maximum winning potential of up to 5,000x the bet.
Straightforward bonus rounds additionally spice up the gameplay. First, there are 3 modifiers able to appear randomly on any spin, awarding:
- Free games
- Transformation of up to 3 losing symbols a into the matching halves needed to create a winning combo
- Placement of 2 to 4 Wilds on the grid in random positions
Once 2 free spins bill halves are matched into one, 8 free spins are triggered. During free spins, 1 or 2 of the lowest paying bills are removed from the grid. Random multipliers of 2x or 3x can appear over symbols, boosting the player’s wins.
The new mechanics and matching the right halves of bills in order to make the winning combos require some getting used to. It's a completely different concept than waiting for several same-type symbols to land in the right order.
Although new isn’t always better, in this case it totally works. The provider managed to refresh the theme seen so many times and make an interesting gameplay, spiced up with numerous bonus features. With up to 5,000x the stake, Piggy Bank Bills slot certainly isn’t the most rewarding game, but it could be worthy of your time. I like it, even though its winning potential should be higher for it to become more popular.
