Pig Winner Slot Review
According to the Chinese zodiac, 2019 will be the year of the Pig and will start on 5th February. If we are to believe Chinese astrology, 2019 will be a great year for making money and investments, a year full of happiness and love for all zodiac signs. That is probably why Realtime Gaming decided to dedicate their first video slot in 2019 to the sign that attracts success in all spheres of life. Pig Winner is a five-reel, three-row video slot that offers 243 ways to win. The central attraction of the 2019 release is the Free Games feature, while the Pig is a grouped Wild that lands on reels 2 and 4 and doubles all prizes when part of a winning combination.
All signs form the Chinese zodiac are on the reels in the Realtime Gaming title. There is the Rat, who likes saving and collecting, the responsible and hardworking Ox, the Tiger, who is independent and a leader, the quiet and polite Rabbit, the adventurous and romantic Dragon, the Snake, who is an idealist, the Horse, who never surrenders, the kind-hearted Goat, the Monkey, who does things based on interest, the sensitive Rooster and the conservative Dog. These are the regular symbols. The Pig is used as a Wild that substitutes for symbols but the Yin Yang Scatter, which triggers the Free Games feature.
Due to the fact that the Pig Winner video slot is yet to be released, the information about rules of the game are scarce, but we did manage to dig out some valuable info. The 2019 release features five reels, three rows and benefits from 243 ways to win. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts. Gamers need to land at least three matching symbols on successive reels, starting from the leftmost reel, in order to win a payout. We are still to discover the betting range, but we don’t believe that the maximum wager will go over £100.
In order to trigger the Free Games feature, punters need to land three or more Yin Yang Scatters on the reels. Spinners will get 8 free games with added Yin Yang Scatters and extra Wilds on the reels. As we mentioned earlier, Pig Wilds will land in groups on reels 2 and 4, both in base game and the Free Games feature and will double all wins when part of a winning combination. It is possible to retrigger the feature up to 2 times. After the eighth freebie, the Pig Wild will triple all wins when part of a winning combination.
We are still to discover which of the symbols will pay the most. If we look at the zodiac, it could be the Rat, who likes saving and collecting. Or it may be the Pig. The only thing we know so far is that the maximum possible payout is set at 200 times the bet in a single spin. Trigger the Free Games feature more than once to get tripled wins with the little help of the Pig Wild.

Realtime Gaming decided to start a year with yet another Chinese themed video slot. Time will tell whether this was a good idea. The main theme of the game is the upcoming year of the Pig, which may attract plenty of gamers looking for prosperity and success in all spheres of life. We liked the Free Games feature and the grouped multiplying Pig Wilds, but we would have liked if there were some additional features incorporated. Taking everything under consideration, the 2019 release is worth the shot, so you could start the Chinese New Year with a brand new release coming from Realtime Gaming’s creative kitchen.
