When Pigs Fly NetEnt

When Pigs Fly is a 5-reel video slot with 20 paylines, powered by the NetEnt software. The game is all about Pigs in Space and it is played on a unique cross-shaped grid. This video slot has interesting symbols such as colorful icons of Pigs, Wilds, Helmets, Spaceships and the main When Pigs Fly symbol. The reels are transparent and are set against the rocket launch backdrop. Spin the reels here for free, or visit any of the listed NetEnt Casinos below.

Before you start playing the game, set your betting range. When you click on the “Level” button you will set the coin size per line, which ranges from 1 to 10. The coin value can be set using the “Coin Value” selector, while “Coins” displays the number of coins players have available to wager. “Max Bet” starts a game round at the highest bet level and the current coin value. The "Autoplay" option automatically plays the game for the selected number of rounds, while "Spin" sets the reels in motion.

The Wild is a pink word “Wild” and it substitutes for all symbols. It can appear on the reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 in the main game and also during Free Spins.

The re-spin feature is interesting and very rewarding. Namely, a winning combination in any spin of the main game activates 1 re-spin, up to a maximum of 5 re-spins. During each re-spin, the amount of ways to win increase by 2 additional symbols that appear on the reels.

Eventually, the winning combination after the 5th re-spin activates 8 Free Spins, which can be played with 3125 ways to win.

When Pigs Fly video slot looks cartoonish and fun to ply at the first sight. I can't personally imagine the flying pigs except for the Christmas time when their souls flying to 'heaven'. Too many creatures end their lives during holiday here.This is 5-reels and from 45 up to 3125 ways to win video slot game and it's playable from 0.50 cents per spin. Graphically looks great and this game is all about re-spin feature where you will get aget re-spin after a winning combination while number of ways to win increases.There are 6 re-spins to be won. I like diamond shape of this slot,after all diamonds are woman best friend so we like seeing shining diamonds.

This game definitely have potential to pay really good.I have played this slot on several occasions and I noticed it can be rewarding during base game and bonus feature too. If you ever played Reel Rush then you should know both games play in similar way.The Wild symbols appear on the reel 2,3, 4 and 5. Wild substitutes for all symbols but it doesn't double win and had no payout itself. That is disappointing fact. There are no Scatters in this game. Logo of When Pigs Fly has massive payout of 1000x your bet size if you manage to collect 5 of them. Talking about payouts it appears that something win is possible to win only during Free Spins.

Another big disappointment is only 8 free spins to be awarded and they can't be retriggered. During my When Pigs Fly session I made the biggest win of 50x my bet size during Free Spins feature. Even though this game is fun to play, I never made some success and I can't tell I am happy to put my into it. I am looking forward to try something new with massive payout potential.

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.
