Pig Wizard Megaways – Blueprint – Slot review and play for free.
At time of review this game is exclusive to Mr Green.
The Pig Wizard has received a Megaways upgrade!
He now has 15625 ways to win. Oink!
Pig Wizard Megaways base game
The game is of course beautifully illustrated and well crafted all the way through to the intuitive UX.
Symbols are clear and the gameplay mechanics are nicely balanced.
If you’re new to Megaways games they work in the following way:
In contrast to normal slots Megaways reels can display different numbers of symbols after each spin.
In this case the symbols can land in such a way as to give you an effective 15625 pay lines.
Pig Wizard is different in that it includes a trigger match symbol to the left of the reels.
The mystery mirror symbol bonus
The symbol highlighted in the box beside the reels is the feature trigger for the more frequent feature in this game.
- Spinnus Repeatum – If the symbol that stops in the mirror corresponds to a win on the reels, the symbols will be held in place and a win streak respin will start. This will end when no more winning symbols land to further enhance your current win. Preferably because you fill up the screen!
- Magical Win Spin – During the magical win spin The Pig Wizard will add either wilds or mystery symbols to the reels. You can trigger some big wins with this, provided you’re hitting a high number of Megaways.
- Winnus Revealo – Following a losing spin The Pig Wizard may appear and transform symbols on the reels to bring you a win. The Pig Wizard can also increase an existing win by adding more symbols to it
Random Pig Wizard bonus
Occasionally even the Pig Wizard gets tired of waiting for the free spins bonus or the match symbol bonus so he pops his head in waves his magical piggy wand and brings on the bonuses for you.
Pig Wizard Megaways Free spin feature
To trigger the free spin feature you will need to land 3 or more bonus scatter symbols anywhere in view.
Free spins are awarded as follows
- 3 Scatter Symbols – 10 Free Spins
4 Scatter Symbols – 12 Free Spins
5 Scatter Symbols – 15 Free Spins
6 Scatter Symbols – 20 Free Spins
IN the free spins round a random multiplier is awarded for every spin – this can range from 5 – 50x.
The mirror and its magical modifiers are always active for every spin during the bonus, so you once again have the chance to activate one of the three game enhancers to give you a shot at a big win.
What you really want to see of course is the Spinnus Repeatum feature to lock in on a top premium symbol and repeat – hopefully aligning with a premium multiplier.
The feature can re-trigger with just 2 symbols and additional symbols reward you as follows:
- 2 Scatter Symbols – 5 Extra Spins
3 Scatter Symbols – 10 Extra Spins
4 Scatter Symbols – 15 Extra Spins
5 Scatter Symbols – 20 Extra Spins
6 Scatter Symbols – 25 Extra Spins
Pig Wizard Megaways – Conclusion
I really like this one, I really like the Pig Wizard and they haven’t lost any of the game’s original charm.
That they’ve changed some features about for this one and not followed the well-worn Megaways standard path is great.
It’s going to find a lot of fans, me included. It may alienate some of the more hardcore Megaways fans though…
Give it a try for yourself in the demo at the top of this review.
