Play’n GO’s new slot, Piggy Bank Farm, has a seemingly-mellow theme that belies a highly volatile game packed with 2 special features that can lead to a maximum payout of 5000x the stake. While a rural, farm-themed slot may not sound too exciting, Play’n GO has succeeded in breathing some life into it with enticing graphics, a banjo-filled soundtrack, and features that can be re-triggered.
Piggy Bank Farm is a 5-reel, 4-row, 50-payline slot that’s playable on all devices. While putting money in a piggy bank is usually considered a safe bet, this slot is highly volatile. The default RTP is 96.29% and the volatility ranks 8/10 on the developer’s scale. Bets range from $.10 to $100, making it appealing to players of varying-sized bankrolls.
Symbols include 10-A royals and animals that are full of character, including a smiling dog, knitting sheep, skeptical rooster, and a proud cow. There is also a farmer wild that pays out 50x the bet for 5 of a kind and a gold coin scatter.
When 3 scatters land on the reels, players get 8 free spins. During this round, the hammer symbol can land on any reel to trigger Piggy Bank Spins (see below). If more than 1 hammer lands, the feature gets a multiplier added, up to x10. The Free Spins round can be re-triggered if 3 additional scatters land at the same time.
Piggy Bank Spins
This special feature is triggered when the hammer symbol lands on the fifth reel. During this round, players get 3 free spins that are reset whenever a new piggy bank symbol lands. There are only piggy bank symbols or blanks that land on the reels, and clusters of piggy banks merge to create larger symbols that expand with every spin. If no piggy bank symbol lands on a spin, the spin counter loses 1 spin. At the end of the round, each piggy bank symbol gets smashed open and reveals different prizes.
Piggy Bank Farm may not promise much in terms of title, but it’s a pretty decent slot that includes two major special features. The graphics and sound are done well, making it one of the more appealing farm-themed slots out there. The high volatility and placid theme make for an interesting juxtaposition. The maximum win is 5000x the bet, not a huge takeaway but not bad for a piggy bank.
