How to play the When Pigs Fly slot

Before launching the reels, you should set all main options and get familiar with the rules and the pay table. The control panel has the following buttons:

  • The "i" button opens the pay table that lists all winning combinations of playing cards and prizes for them
  • Auto Play activates automatic reel spins, that means the reels spin without your participation. Click this button to open the window where you can choose the required number of auto spins from 10 to 1,000. Auto spins are done with the previously specified bet
  • A round button in the middle starts the game
  • Max Bet — sets the maximum amount of coins per spin and triggers the reels
  • Click the +/- buttons in the Level section to adjust the size of the bet per spin
  • Click the +/- buttons in the Coin Value section to determine the coin denomination

The When Pigs Fly slot does not have active paylines, that is why the bet is placed on a round. The betting range varies between 1 and 10 coins. The game uses coins, but initially you get 5,000 credits which are recalculated into coins according to the desired value, from 0.01 to 0.20. The maximum bet per spin reaches 500 coins.

There are information windows to control the gameplay:

  • Bet — the total bet for one spin
  • Coins — the available number of coins

The information about the balance, the current bet and the payout also can be found at the bottom of the screen. There are also the mute button, the game settings menu and the game rules section. To the right of the game window you will find the counter of free spins, which displays the remaining number of them.

Symbols and multipliers of the When Pigs Fly slot

The When Pigs Fly slot has both regular and special symbols. Regular symbols form combinations of 3, 4 or 5 identical symbols. At the same time they must appear in a row, starting from the leftmost reel. Every winning combination produces one free spin and a payout. The amount of payout is calculated by applying the bet to the multiplier indicated in the pay table. Each symbol has its own multiplier:

  • 3, 4 or 5 logos increase your payout 10, 250 or 1,000 times
  • A pig astronaut — 10, 150 or 500 times
  • A pig in a flying helmet — 10, 100 or 250 times
  • A blimp with the word "Bar" — 10, 75 or 200 times
  • Balloons with sevens — 10, 60 or 150 times
  • A helmet with wings — 10, 50 or 100 times
  • A, K, Q, J and 10 — 5, 15 and 50 times

If several winning combinations are formed, their payouts are added up.

The special symbol of the slot is the Wild — the icon with the word "Wild". It appears only on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, which does not allow it to create its own combinations. The main function of the Wild is to complete combinations of other symbols. The Wild is active during free spins.

Free spins and bonus rounds of the slot

With every winning combination you get one free spin, which is done with the same bet. The maximum number of re-spins is 5. During each of them, the number of boxes in the game window increases. First, the first reel gets 3 boxes instead of 1, then the same happens with the fifth reel. The third re-spin increases the number of boxes on the second reel, from 3 to 5. Later, the same happens with the fourth reel. For the last re-spin each reel has 5 boxes, except the last reel which only has 3.

This way, with each re-spin the number of possible winning combination increases:

  • The first re-spin — 135
  • The second — 405
  • The third — 675
  • The fourth — 1,125
  • The fifth — 1,875

If a winning combination of identical symbols is formed after the fifth re-spin, it produces 8 free spins with 25 icons in the game window, that is 5 boxes on each reel. During free spins the number of possible winning combination increases to 3,125.
