There's a fine line between success and failure for slots that go for the “cutesy” approach. This is because cute cartoonish graphics and music aren't the main reason players choose a slot.
So the temptation must be resisted for designers to lean too heavily on the theme at the expense of features. Fortunately, 7 Piggies by Pragmatic Play is chockablock with both.
The backdrop is a farm reminiscent of ones found in kids cartoons and sets a playful tone right from the start. This is a five reel seven payline slot with huge volatility. So if you are a patient player, with a grim determination to settle in and wait for the big wins, then this slot should appeal to you. All the graphics and music blend into the theme seamlessly, and this is almost “too cute”.
The symbols are a variety of eccentric pigs, each larger than life and culminating in the King of the PIgs who serves as the wild. A red barn is the scatter symbol and the only one that cannot be replaced by the wild.
The controls are easy to use and understand containing everything you would need, including Autoplay and Quick Spin.
Being an extremely volatile slot, some massive wins are possible. A lot of them come during Free Spins because they are abundant and with plenty of multipliers. After activating Free spins (by getting three scatters), you need to open three barn doors and Multipliers, and Free spins are revealed. They are up to ten Free Spins and five Multipliers! These can be re-triggered from within the Free Spins section.
We enjoyed the mobile version just as much – all the enjoyment coupled with the portability.
7 Piggies is a fantastic slot that worms its way into your heart even if you are not too keen on overly cute games. Its solid design combined with some of the best Free Spins we’ve encountered make this a contender to be one of our favourites. So, If you’re a fan of volatile slots and are looking for something wacky and fun, give this one a try.
