Slot providers love to make a big song and dance when releasing a new game and being a bit of a sucker for this stuff I'm usually right there lapping up their fancy promotional videos the first moment they appear on the forums here at AskGamblers. Sometimes I'll find myself absolutely bursting to try a new game after watching these videos, however with the recent trend towards creating endless clones and reskins of existing games amongst the big players such as NetEnt and Microgaming I find myself disappointed more often than not when I realize that, infact, the game on display isn't actually a new game at all. Why don't they devote their time, energy and resources into producing entirely new machines?!

This time it's "Reel Rush" that has had it's innards shamelessly copied and combined with a new set of assets to create "When Pigs Fly", a colourful and quirky game with a surreal theme that should appeal to all players who like their slots not too serious! Reel Rush was also a bright and bold game though and I do question why NetEnt chose to create another slot that is really very similar in the design stakes with this engine.

Of course being a clone this game suffers from the same frustrating game play that I found when I played Reel Rush - the diamond shaped reels make for a lot of dead spins as you only have a single symbol on the far left followed by only two spaces with which to match it. When you do finally manage to score a win the reels open up a little giving more chances to score another win, but you only have one chance as the play area closes back up again the second a dead spin arrives, which is very often.

Score six consecutive wins in a row and you finally get to what it's all about, eight free spins with the entire screen on show for an amazing 3,125 ways to win. It sure takes a long time to get here though and you'd hope that it would be at least reasonably certain that these free spins would deliver a moderate sized win, but that's just not the case and I have sometimes suffered the agony of playing hundreds of spins to get the bonus, followed by eight spins of little or no value. Considering the high maximum bet size of 0.50, you really do have to be brave to play this game and whilst it definitely does have some big potential hidden away somewhere this just isn't a game for me.

When Pigs Fly is a video slot game from Net Entertainment that not only uses the Spinning Reels engine but it also has some bonus features too. This is an interesting game where you can see pigs in space and do not be surprised to see them fly when you hit a win.

When Pigs Fly is a video slot game that has a bit different structure that we are used to see. The game has 5 reels and 5 rows and there are between 45 and 3125 ways to win here. This shows us that the game has a potential to pay good. The game play is really addictive too but I cannot say that I was very lucky the last time I played this slot. This is a new game and it appears that it is rating really high, but I do not share the public opinion of it.

‘When Pigs Fly’ can be a very rewarding game, not only during the feature but also during the base game. The highest amount that I have won during the base game was 200 x bet and during the feature was 150 x bet. There are a couple of features here but my favourite would be the free spins feature. To activate the free spins you need to land a winning combination on the fifth spin. So basically this is an addition to the re-spin feature, it is kind of like a cherry on the top.

During the re spins feature you can get up to 5 re spins. This is a really nice feature where you can see the reels change its shape. I have played this game couple of times and the outcome is always different. I was disappointed a bit from my last session but that does not mean that I will not play the game again.

When Pigs Fly is one of the newest game releases from Netent software and as a Netent fan I knew about this release about one month prior the release date. I had seen the promotional vieo and to be honest, I wasn’t really looking forward for this game, just because it seemed to be an expensive game, very similar to Reel Rush slot, which has very often given me great losses and not so great winnings.

When the game was released, I tried it with 50 free spins at Doublestar casino. The first experience with the game was upsetting, from the free spins I managed to win only 6€. That, however, didn’t surprise me. The game has interesting structure and really great looking design, with pig as an astronaut as the main inspiration. So the game has structure of 5 reels that are displayed by 1-3-5-3-1 symbols, in a way looking like a pyramid and instead of having regular amount of paylines, the game offers up to 3251 winning lines. The most important thing in this game is consecutive winnings as they unlock more symbols and eventually free spins. I have tried this game many times now and what I have experienced is that very often it will be very hard to get enough wins to unlock free spins and so far I haven’t had any win over 40x bet on base game.

The only bonus this game has is free spins and they are my favorite part of this slot because then all symbols are unlocked and in the free spins I have had some decent winnings. My best result was a win of 80x bet size and it was due to one big win in free spins. That being said, I know that this game won’t be something I play often. The minimum bets are 0.50€ which I find quite expensive and as I said, free spins can be hard to trigger and on base game it’s hard to get decent winnings because of the locked symbols. But I have to say that design is great, graphics are an eye candy and this game definitely has great winning potential, but I do recommend to have good bankroll cause this game can be a total money eater

From the makers of Netent's Reel Rush comes a fantasy in which pigs have wings! Introducing "When Pigs Fly"! This slot begins with a diamond shape then it slowly unfurls itself until no streaks of wins appear or 6 wins in a row blasts off for 8 free spins on 3125 ways!!! I always thought as a kid, the pure imagination sailed with pigs having wings, nuns capable of taking flight in the sky and dinosaurs using their enormous wings to drill holes into the ground like a spinning top! Weird ideas I once had!

Now with When Pigs Fly, there is no certainty pigs can dominate the air but they can be enjoys upon this slot! It is only from last week I believe that I tried 20 free spins given by Grand Ivy so I went to make quick steps of it! Typical Reel Rush action, nothing in particular that was new except for the rocket ship launch background, the 6 spins to go before the heroic pig goes to space to offer 8 free spins! From the 20 free spins at 1 coin bet thanks to Grand Ivy, one of the spins hit the 6 streak of wins to hand over 8 free spins! Thank God I hit my 6 streak before I expelled my 20 spins!

For $0.50, I cannot fight over the $26.35 total win in the feature.....it is the wilds that become very important in addressing such vigorous winnings! 52x on that feature alone, I went on to wager the remaining bonus towards NRVNA because I felt this video slot did not want me to enter the free spins anymore.........it was afraid I might turn "flying pigs into bacon". For a short period of knowing When Pigs Fly I prefer this over Reel Rush despite their equal personalities! Twins at birth, yes please!

Wonderful effort in the space station background, the pig on the right turning gestures per each win made and 8 free spins going 3125 ways upon hitting 6 in a row wins. A 7 out of 10! I will go back to this slot to give it more attention.......after all it may agree to give me potential cosmic wins! Hope it does not see me heating up the pan! :D
I grew tired for the teasers that came with When Pigs Fly. I completed 4 wins in a row, back to start. It gets really old but I persist to reach free spins again in the near future!

Oh boy, when a game pays 3125 ways, I can just imagine the kind of play area that would entail - 5 reels and 5-rows. Luckily, When Pigs Fly does pay 3125 ways all the time. That only happens when you play the Free Spins game, and that was a big relief for me, because I just hate 5-reels 5-rows games. In the normal base game, When Pigs Fly starts play in a diamond shape play area, increasing in size with every successive win, up to 5 times, which then awards the Free Spins game that plays in the full 5-reels 5-rows 3125 ways to win. Imagine playing the game Reel Rush and you'll get the whole picture.

The icons in the game are cartoons of pigs, presented in scenarios with muted pastel colours, pleasing to watch, but lacks vibrancy. Not really to my liking but it's simple and nice enough. The Wild symbol appears only reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, substituting for all symbols, but doesn't double any wins nor pay anything for itself. Yep, dumb ones these Wilds. There are no Scatters to get additional wins, which is a shame, because the Wilds themselves don't pay, thereby greatly reducing chances of more wins. The logo 'When Pigs Fly' pays 1000x the line bet for 5 of them, whilst the other symbols pay from 500x down to 50x the line bet for 5 of each kind. Overall, a very low paytable which doesn't offer chances for big wins, unless won in the Free Spins game.

Get 5 successive wins in a row and the Free Spins game is awarded, which plays and pays the 5-reels 5-rows 3125 ways. Good wins can be had no doubt, but the free spins have been limited to just 8 spins, with no retriggering possible, so luck plays an important role. It is pretty hard to say what could be the maximum win possible in the free Spins game, because the number of winning paylines may vary a lot with each win, thereby greatly differentiating the possibilities. I would say 1000x the total bet as the maximum win possible. Maybe less, maybe more, I can't say for sure.
I've had some plays on this game, both with free spins and with my own deposits. The game plays quite well, quite interesting enough with the many random Wilds appearing on the reels, but getting to the Free Spins game can be quite a hassle most of the time. My best win so far is far from satisfying, being only 63x my bet amount, and each Free Spins game doesn't last long enough to give more excitement in the gameplay. How long can 8 free spins last, right? Wish more can be won, like additional 1 or 2 more free spins on the third successive win, or something like that. That would liven up the game much more, increasing the free spins number from just the 8, extending the playtime, creating more wins, and pumping more adrenaline...but I guess NetEnt don't like that. Hahaha.

When Pigs Fly is the latest slot release from my favorite provider NetEnt. The slot has to do about some pigs which want to fly to the moon with their spaceship, a very funny theme. It has decent graphics, too poor I would say for a new release from this provider which always has the best graphics in the slots industry. They remind me of poor quality cartoons and it is a very childish designed slot.

As for the gameplay is an exact copy of the famous Reel Rush from the same provider, a slot that I like very much. Unfortunately the only changed the graphics from the original slot, all the others are the same, even the paytable of the two slots.

The slot has a nice unique feature as it starts as a 20 liner slot but it can eventually turn to a 3125 ways slot at the free spins. After every win you have, there is a respin where the number of the ways you win is increased and the reels are increased too by 2 positions. Of course when you have a no winning combination spin, the table of the slot returns to 20 ways.

If you have 6 consecutive wins, then you win the free spins, where you play 8 free spins with 3125 ways, which is very nice. The game has minimum bet of 0.50 which is kind expensive so you have to have a good balance in order to play the slot. It is not for lowrollers unfortunately. The paytable is poor since 5 of a kind of the best symbol pays only 40 times the bet, but on the other hand since the slot has so many paylines this amount can be multiplied a lot of times. From my experience on this slot I would say it is low to medium variance slot, the free spins come usually often, but winnings over 100 times the bet are very rare.

Since I like the graphics of the Reel Rush much more that this slot, I do not believe I will play it a lot.
Are you a fan of the slot Reel Rush? If yes, then this new release from Netent is for you. When Pigs Fly is a Netent slot game with 5 reels, 5 rows and up to 3125 ways to win and a good replica of Reel Rush. From $0.50 per spin across all platforms and the pigs in space can be highly rewarding with 2 great bonus features.

With colourful graphics, brilliant animations and of course a good soundtrack really set this game apart from reel rush for me. Due to this I prefer to play this slot rather than reel rush. The background of this slot is taken where the rocket is launching, looks like NASA lol and of course the main focus is about pigs in outer space.

Re-spin feature: The re-spin feature is triggered when you create 1 winnings combination, and continue to re-spin as long as you create another winning combination during the next spin and so on. The wild symbol is very active in slot and help create those winnings. While you progress during the re-spin feature, the reels become bigger and expand, giving you more reels and ways to win. You can win up to 5 re-spins and upon winning in the final re-spin, the free spins feature is triggered.

8 free spins are awarded with 3125 ways to win. If the game is in a good mood, then during the free spins feature is where you can score big and certainly those pigs will really fly. I must admit it is a bit difficult to reach this stage though, but it will definitely be worth it once you enter the free spins mode.

I played this game a couple of times and lost a lot of money. I have however reached the free spins feature which rewarded me very well but didn’t make up for my losses. Although I admire the graphics and the theme, this is not one of my favourite slots, but do give this game a try. However the day when pigs really fly, is the day when Askgamblers does not exist and this review will be gone.

Pigs in space or When Pigs Fly is the newest released video slot from Netent Entertainment and must say they surprised me this time with this newly added game as a nicely medium or high variance slot. From the moment I saw this new game I just knew I would like it, Why, well maybe for the fact I do have luck in slots which involves Pigs as Piggy Riches slot game.

Its 50 reel and has 3125 ways to win playable with 0.50 cents per bet so a bit expensive slot to be played and the thing I don't like about this games that you cannot lower the line size put have to play with all of them, but I guess every game with more ways to win are the same.

At first I was skeptic for When Pigs Fly game, because we all know that Netent has launched failure after failure games, but not this time, this game looks a bit different, just because has much more to give. I like the free spins although a bit to trigger the free spins feature. The free spins feature would be triggered, if the player wins 6 times in a row so the free spins games will be open.

The game reminds me a bit as Reel Rush just because of that re spin feature where if the wins are triggered after every spin, 2 position are opening in the reels so that way bigger chances to trigger extra big wins. I played this slot for a while this week and the biggest win I have triggered was in Double Star Casino where playing with the minimum bet of 0.50 cents, triggered the free spins feature and managed to get 102 euros from those 8 free spins.

So far I like this game a lot, although it can eat your balance in minutes but as every game, when in mood of giving it can really boost players balance. Nice new slot, with another cartonish theme with nice graphics as well, for now When Pigs Fly is becoming one of my favorite slots, so will see how much it can give, but will try with a bit higher bet.

When Pigs Fly is the newest video slot powered by NetEnt software provider. It is pretty similar to Reel Rush, so yeah this one is ˝another˝ clone game from NetEnt.

I tried it just yesterday when I got some free spins on it. The game has re-spins mode. A winning combination in any spin of the base game activates 1 respin, up to a max of 5 respins. With each respin the number of ways to win increases. At first respin you have 135 ways to win, at second 405, at third 675, at fourth 1125 and for fifth respin 1875 ways to win. A winning combination after the fifth respin activates 8 free spins and those free spins are played at 3125 ways.

I tried this video slot first at Royal Panda casino where I received 10 free spins on it. From those free spins I won around 6€. Well later I changed it to Dead or Alive where I spent those 6€. Just a few minutes later I went into Betchan casino where I also received 10 free spins. I was hoping for some better winnings on it. I had some luck because I triggered free spins and from those I won around 20€. Later my account was credited with this amount and I had to wager almost 900€ before I could request cash out. I decided to play it for a while since i triggered free spins very fast. Well after some time my balance falling down towards zero, but at the end I triggered free spins one more time. I won only around 10€ on them, so I was a little bit disappointing. The base game is ok, it could provide some descent winnings on last two respins where you have more ways to win.

Otherwise I think this is a good game. I like to play Reel rush sometimes, but I think I like this one a little bit more just because it has better theme. Hehe. I am sure I will play it again, because I want to get some big win from it. I will rate it with 7 stars.

Assuming its role as one of the leading companies in gambling software development industry, “NetEnt” is a company that always strives to create ever more innovative games even if it means departing from the proven parameters accepted by the vast majority of slots’ players.

In this case, its new slot “When Pigs Fly,” it has a very different structure from traditional slots since it goes transforming itself gradually after each re-spin awarded after each hit, offering better opportunities to the player as it is increasing the number of rows of each of the reels.

All this outpouring of creativity has resulted in a high-volatility video slot where to get the first hit at every turn is a little harder than normal, a condition that is alleviated to some extent by the dynamic flow of wild symbols on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Still, I feel that I personally have not managed to connect very well with this game, just from my first spin I have been subjected to an endless slump that never gave me a chance to even recover losses, the closest I was to do this it was on a couple of occasions where I could get a couple of big wins each equivalent to about 25x my total bet, and of course, these winnings were not enough to even get close to my starting point.

It is possible that an experienced player with a large capital may achieve to sustain his balance until getting a real big win; however, personally, I was immersed in a somewhat frustrating situation that will definitely not let me appreciate this game.

It can be said that to the present day this game is still totally fresh, so I consider prudent to give it the benefit of the doubt and hope that experiences of other players are much better than mine; for my part, I prefer to return to some traditional slots that I think have a better risk-benefit relation.
