Look and Feel
When Pigs Fly! is notable for its interesting reel design, arranged in a staggered cross-like pattern, and for its high concept art style and design. Exploring the idea of cartoon pigs piloting rocket ships in a sort of 1970s-style retro futurism, When Pigs Fly! features jaunty vintage-look graphics and a host of fun sound effects to accompany spins and wins.
The game’s play window shows a rocket ready to blast off to the left-hand side, and a cartoon pig pilot to the right. The orange “countdown” button above the pig’s head signifies a countdown to the next available free spins.
The lower value symbols are alphanumeric, while higher value symbols include character portraits of the male and female pig characters, a winged helmet, green balloons, a bar icon that forms part of the rocket, and an icon of the game’s logo, which is the most valuable symbol in the game. The “wild” symbol is bright pink and text-based, in a fabulously groovy 1960s/70s-style font.
Bets in When Pigs Fly! are controlled through the “Level” and “Coin Value” selectors. There are autoplay and max bet options available, with the possibility of stopping autoplay spins early if required.
The minimum bet per spin is 50p, with a ceiling of £100 per spin, with the game offering anything from 45 to 3,125 paylines, thanks to its innovative 1x3x5x3x1 reel design. In a gameplay element that will be familiar to players who’ve played NetEnt’s popular title Reel Rush, the reels automatically respin after every winning bet, and will be expanded by two symbols. This feature by itself can tke the number of paylines up to a massive 1875 at full expansion. Five successive respins will trigger the free spins feature.
When Pigs Fly! offers a lucrative bonus free spins mode that takes place on a 5×5 reel set, increasing the potential paylines to the full listed 3,125 ways to win. Eight free spins are the standard bonus and more can be unlocked during this mode.
All in all, When Pigs Fly! is a good medium variance game with the potential for great wins and a very unique, entertaining concept and art style that will delight lovers of sci-fi and vintage-look fun.
