Springbok Casino is no stranger to oriental themes. Anyone who’s ever played their slots at your favorite online casino knows that they have an admirable portfolio of Asian-themed online slot machines to offer.
Pig Winner is yet another addition to that portfolio, and this time the focus is on the intriguing Chinese zodiac and the festivities surrounding the Chinese New Year.
In case you didn’t know, the festival of welcoming the Chinese New Year is one of the biggest celebrations in the world. And the beginning of the festive activities is determined by traditional astrology which implies that there are 12 zodiac signs, each corresponding to a certain animal and its respective characteristics.
The Chinese zodiac lists the following signs: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. In that order, the signs mark each year and the cycle repeats after 12 years. You will see these animals on the reels and also in the paytable; their design is modern, almost neon, but the concept is deeply traditional. The sounds are oriental and gong pounding is something you ought to get used to, especially if you enter a lucky streak.
There are 243 ways to win in Pig Winner, as the machine runs on 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols, in the absence of regular paying lines. All ways pay here and the player needs at least three adjacent symbols to get a payout. The pig symbol works as a substitute, and there is also a Scatter symbol, responsible for the main bonus feature. If you prefer, you can set the reels to perform a number of automatic spins and really get into the slot’s ambience by simply observing how the game works and how your balance can be boosted.
Group Pigs Double the Prize
The pig and the Yin Yang Scatter are the key symbols to big wins. Pig appears as a grouped Wild on reels 2 and 4. It counts for all the symbols with the exception of Wilds and it doubles the payouts when it becomes part of a winning combo in normal gameplay. The Ying Yang triggers the Free Games – it takes three of them to land on a single spin for 8 freebies to be awarded to the player. As an extra, there will be additional Wilds and Scatters added to the reels during free play. That way the chances of winning become notably bigger. The Free Games round can be retriggered up to 2 times. Also, the Wild symbol has the ability to multiply the prize three times from the eighth spin onward. If the player manages to prolong the round, he or she stands to bag more wins.
