The new Piggy Riches Megaways online pokie from Red Tiger Gaming can now be found at Casino.com, which means that it should also soon be available at 888 Casino (new Red Tiger pokies always seem to take longer to arrive at this casino). Casino.com is a top-rated Kiwi online casino that’s currently offering all new players up to NZ$100 in free bonus cash and 200 Free Spins to try out selected online pokies, and 888 Casino is currently offering all new players up to NZ$1,500 in free bonus cash.
The new Piggy Riches Megaways pokie is based on NetEnt’s classic Piggy Riches online pokie (which first appeared online back in May 2014), and it’s the very first collaborative online pokie that the two software providers have released since the NetEnt’s acquisition of Red Tiger was completed back in September 2019. “Following the popularity of Piggy Riches™, we are delighted to give it a further boost with the addition of our hugely popular marketing tools, as well as the Megaways™ mechanics,” said the CEO at Red Tiger, Gavin Hamilton.
He then went on to say, “Our talented team has worked closely - and at break-neck speed with NetEnt - as well as Big Time Gaming, to deliver the best each of us has to offer. I’m particularly pleased with how quickly we have brought this to market.” Altogether there are 6 reels with partially stacked and fully stacked symbols across all 6 reels, and with each spin that you take, there can be up to as many as 117,640 different ways to win, thanks to the Megaways™ game mechanic that’s under license from Big Time Gaming.
The Wild Symbols and the Scatter Symbols can also both appear stacked, plus the Wild Symbols come with 2X to 7X Multipliers that can boost your line wins even further. When the Wild Symbols land on top of each other on the same reel, they will turn into Mega Wilds (fully stacked wild symbols) so that they are now covering the entire reel from top to bottom. Wild Symbols and Scatter Symbols can both land in any position across any of the 5 reels, and the only symbols that the Wild Symbols will NOT substitute are the Scatter Symbols.
The fun really begins on this game when 3 or more Scatter Symbols land anywhere on the reels on the same spin. A fun side game will now trigger, and you will get to spin the Wheel of Fortune once to reveal how many Free Spins (up to 22) you have won and the size of the Multiplier (up to 10X). This is one of the best new online pokies that New Zealand players were treated to in January 2020, so don’t forget to check it out when you next play at Casino.com, especially if you’re a fan of Megaways pokies, and if you enjoyed playing on the original Piggy Riches online pokie.
