The Great Pigsby Megapays Overview
This new slot, designed by Relax Gaming, takes us back to the glamourous and exciting 1920s. The game is themed around the third novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby. The story is one of betrayal, excessive wealth, yearning, and powerful love. However, relax Gaming’s take on it incorporates a piggy bank aesthetic, hence the modified title and pigs all over the reel. Mechanically, this game is a Megaways game, meaning that the number of symbols that falls onto each reel changes with every spin. The most you can land in a row is seven. If all rows land seven, the player will have 117,649 pay lines available.
The features for this game start with the Great Pigsby re-spin feature, which awards players one re-spin with a new set of high-value symbols to help score a big win. This feature is followed by the free spins feature, which, when triggered, gives you ten free spins that can be topped up by landing additional scatter symbols on the board. Next is the wild re-spins feature that awards one spin with 2-5 reels turned wild. Finally, there is the Megapays feature, triggered at random. This mechanic picks a random symbol to become the Megapays symbol. This feature can lead to some valuable jackpots being won. All features will be explained in more detail later on in the review.
Theme and Symbols
The theme for this game is The Great Gatsby, the famous novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald or, in this case, The Great Pigsby. Relax Gaming probably chose this theme as it is good to use to intone glamour, wealth, and excess. This could have almost been quite a classy theme if it weren’t for incorporating the piggy bank aspect, which somewhat lowers the tone with pink porcine running all over the reels. That being said, this game does at least present something quite original in its strange fusion theme.
The background for this game is the fabulous Gatsby mansion which forms the backdrop of many of the most famous scenes in the book and is the setting for Gatsby’s longing looks across the bay. Designed in an appropriate art deco style, the mansion is full of touches that mark out 1920s architecture. However, some elements remind you that this is also a piggy bank game, such as the roof ornaments shaped like happy piglets. The background changes when you activate bonus features, taking you inside the mansion for a more intimate look at the Pigsby mansion.
The playing board is a blackboard with an art deco frame that turns gold and is quite ostentatious in the bonus round.
The symbols for this game are split into low-value, high-value and special symbols. The low-value symbols are the 10, J, Q, K, and A in playing card royals. The most valuable one of these is the A, paying out at 0.4x the stake for the top combination. On the other hand, the more valuable symbols are the whiskey and cigar, the phonograph, the headpiece, lady pigsby, and pigsby himself. Pigsby is the most valuable of these symbols, worth 3x stake for the top combination. The specials finally are the piggy bank coin wild and the envelope scatters, which appear in the free spins round.
The Great Pigsby Megapays is played on a 6-reel Megaways machine. This means that between two and seven symbols may fall onto each reel every spin, meaning the number of paylines changes with every spin too.
The maximum number of pay lines that you can play on is 117,649. To win combinations, players must land three or more matching symbols on pay lines moving from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.
The betting range for The Great Pigsby Megapays is 20p to £50 per spin. To adjust their bet levels, players can toggle their stake up and down using the tool located at the bottom left-hand side of the screen.
Further information, including a short tutorial and a display of the paytable, can be found via the menu button in the right-hand corner of the screen. The spin and auto spin buttons are located in the centre of the screen.
Volatility for this slot is rated in the very high range. The return to player percentage for The Great Pigsby Megapays is 96.19%, which is above average. The biggest payout that players can win on one spin is 20,000x your stake.
The first feature included in this game is the wild re-spin feature, which, when triggered, awards you one re-spin where two to five of the reels have been turned completely wild. The multiplier value on the reels will display how many wild symbols are on a wild reel. The more wild symbols, the larger the multiplier active.
The next feature in this game is the Great Pigsby feature which awards you one re-spin with a new layer of high-value pigsby symbols. The higher value symbols give you a better chance of scoring a high-value win.
The next feature is the free spins game which, when triggered, awards players ten free spins. When within the game envelope, scatters may land on the reels. Each one will award players another two free spins as well as remove one of the lower value symbols. All instances of what would have been this symbol are then replaced by a medium or high-value symbol, increasing the win potential of the spins. No wilds or multipliers are available in this round.
Finally, we have the Megapays feature. This feature is randomly triggered, taking you to a new set of reels where one royal symbol is selected to become the Megapays symbol, and a re-spin is granted. If you manage to land one or more of the Megapays symbol in the re-spin, it will lock in place, and another re-spin is awarded. These re-spins will then continue until no new Megapays symbols fall or until you land the Mega jackpot. The more Megapays symbols that you land throughout the feature, the larger your final payout will be. The maximum jackpot is achieved by landing fifteen Megapays symbols. This jackpot is worth £686,299.09.
The Great Pigsby seems to be the full package with high-quality graphics, a fun and original theme, and some great features. We had plenty of thrills playing this game and even registered a couple of decent wins. However, the high volatility made this game very difficult to predict, with features triggering very rarely. If you are into high-risk, high reward, though, this game could be a good choice for you.
