We're off to the mean streets of 19th Century Birmingham to team up with Tommy Hilpigger and his Peaky Pigs in this great new slot by Snowborn Games. And if you haven't guessed by now, it's inspired by the epic series, Peaky Blinders, with pigs added.
This 5-reel, 3-row game has 20 fixed paylines and a choice of symbols that are not for the faint-hearted. For low pays, we have items favoured by the violent criminal classes, like knuckle dusters, broken bottles, boxing gloves, razors, horseshoes, and beer mugs. The premiums are the characters from the Peaky Pigs gang; Billy Bacon, Sam the Ham, Ricky Ribs, and Tommy Hilpigger. The betting range is between 0.20 to 20.00.
The Wild stands in for other symbols to help and also multiplies the win by anything up to 5 x. It also gives its own prizes of up to 111 x the bet for 5. The Wild also plays a key role in the Free Spins, as I'll explain below.
The Scatter is a pocket watch, a favourite target of pickpocket gangs. It only lands on reels one, three and five, and three across these reels landing on one spin are needed to trigger the bonus round.
Players will also notice the Piggy premiums sometimes land with coins attached. These are collected in the Piggy Pot and are key to triggering the Piggy Pots Bonus.
The Scatter symbol awards a prize of 3 x the bet and triggers three free spins when three land across reels 1, 3, and 5. During the Free Spins, Wilds are Sticky, remaining in place for the rest of the Free Spins and resetting the total spins remaining to 3 every time they land. And at the end of every spin, one of the gang throws a stick of dynamite at the grid. This explodes above a Wild and will increase its win multipliers by + 1 up to a maximum of 9 x.
The Piggy Pots Bonus is triggered by collecting coins and consists of five Free Spins. At the beginning of the round, each of the four members of the Piggy gang is assigned one of the Piggy Pots prizes, which are 15x, 40 x, 200 x, or 5,000 x the bet. These are collected as they land during the round, and at the end, the player is awarded the prize attached to the pig who hit the most.
