Well we can see the self-parody in the title here. Will I win big? Yeah, when pigs fly! Will Netent give us an original slot? Yeah, when pigs.....oh dear! You see, When Pigs Fly is a clone of Netent's very own Reel Rush, right down to the exact same 97% Return To Player! Maybe they should have named this new one 'De ja Vous'?
The reels have stacked symbols with non-multiplying wilds on all except the first. Our porcine friends make the highest award for 5-of-a-kind (5OAK) at 20x stake. The lowest letter symbol pays 1x stake for 5OAK. When Pigs Fly has a multiway set-up with no paylines. Initially you start with a 1-3-5-3-1 reels formation which is 45 ways. Should you get a win, the first reel expands to 3 rows so the game becomes 135 ways for the next spin. If another win appears you will find the last reel expands to 3 rows thus giving 405 ways. For a better understanding check out the free play version of When Pigs Fly.
Should you go through the full progression to 3125 ways i.e. a full 5x5 screen you will have triggered the game's feature. This consists of 8 non-retriggerable free spins played on this full 5x5 screen. The symbols aren't stacked 5-high so you can't get a screen-full but there is potential for well in excess of 1000x stake with wilds and double-symbols over 5 reels. To assist you in counting the 6 consecutive wins necessary to achieve free spins you have the irritating little pig on the right giving you a thumbs-up for each win and counting down from 6. When Pigs Fly shares this characteristic with Netent's 'Big Bang' whereby 6 consecutive wins are necessary to achieve the top 32x multiplier.
The juvenile graphics and utterly inane sound effects in When Pigs Fly slot really made me hate that pig after 5 minutes, and all I could visualize was him sliced, fried and accompanied by a couple of eggs. This detracted from what ostensibly is a clever and interesting slot concept. The base game gives some decent pays and there is big win potential. A good idea, but I would say try the vegetarian format of Reel Rush.
