I think it’s one of the funniest titles you’ll find in the assortment NetEnt slots and once you’ve opened the When Pigs Fly!™ slot, you’ll indeed find a funny video slot. If you can expect pigs flying around for real? Mainly based on cartoons from the 90’s available on Nickelodeon such as Ren & Stimpy, Catdog, and The Jetsons. Those who have been watching a cartoon network in the 90’s will recognise the style used for When Pigs Fly!™. If you didn’t know better, you would have thought that this NetEnt slot was based on an existing cartoon from that time. Well, it’s not, and that’s exactly why NetEnt wins award after award. NetEnt stands for innovation and originality and every single game has to offer an original theme, cutting-edge graphics and animations while offering renewing and innovative slot features. When Pigs Fly!™ does deliver all of that and more….
Back to the 90’s
What a time and looking back many of you will recognise all so typical for the 90’s. What about the first mobile phones, some having the size of a coca-cola bottle, although later on replaced with the first Nokia’s. The Discman started to replace the walkman and the one odd trend followed the other. There were the slap bracelets in all different colours and prints, Tamagotchis, crimped hair, the pogs trend, the Furbies, and many more trends that I’m not even familiar with. The 90’s are also marked by timeless movies like Titanic, Home Alone, Jurassic Park, The Sixth Sense, Saving Private Ryan, Mrs. Doubtfire, Mission: Impossible, Forrest Gump, Braveheart, Men In Black, Independence Day, and the first Star Wars Episode. Not only the film industry was having a good time, so was the music industry with popstars such as Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Destiny’s Child, Alanis Morisette, ‘N Sync, Mariah Carey, No Doubt, the Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, Jennifer Lopez, don’t forget Hanson, and many more artist who were having their first successes in the 90’s.
While NetEnt’s When Pigs Fly!™ seems inspired by 90’s cartoons such as Ren & Stimpy, CatDog, and The Jetsons, there were many more cartoons at that time keeping us entertained on the Saturday mornings. Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Ed, Edd ‘n Eddy, Dexter’s Laboratory, Dragon Ball Z, The Powerpuff Girls, Sailor Moon, Scooby-Doo, Looney Tunes were just a few of the cartoons aired in the 90’s. Who doesn’t remember these mornings, installed on the couch with sugary cereal and cozy pajamas watching cartoon after cartoon, just until it was time to get dressed for school or to spend time with the neighbourhood kids. If you like video slots and you recognise yourself in the Saturday morning ritual, I’m sure you will be delighted when opening the When Pigs Fly!™ slot at one of the many NetEnt Casinos. This video slot will definitely bring you back to Saturday mornings and yu can even wear your cozy pyjamas again when playing the video slot. You can even stay in bed if you want and ask your better half for breakfast in bed. Wherever you decide to play the When Pigs Fly!™ slot, there’s a lot to look out for with a great design, funny animations and slot features such as Wild substitutions, re-spins and Free Spins with 3125 Ways to Win.
The betting options involved in this funny video slot aren’t what I’ve expected from a NetEnt slot. The minimum bet is above average and the maximum bet is pretty low with 100.00. However, there are 10 levels available and five different coin values which give you the opportunity to choose any bet between 0.50 and 100.00.
3125 Ways to win
The moment you open the When Pigs Fly!™ slot, you’ll notice that this game doesn’t look much like a standard video slot. The standard game is offering you a 45 Ways to Win with a layout of 1-3-5-3-1 reels instead of the standard 3×5 reels. Pretty interesting, especially in combination with the Free Spins feature which will take the When Pigs Fly!™ slot in another direction. This is all going to happen as soon as Free Spins are activated. This will happen when the fifth and final consecutive re-spin is successful. This is the moment that 8 Free Spins are awarded and the initial layout disappears to make way for a 5×5 layout and with that an incredible 3125 Ways to Win.
When Pigs Fly!™ Main game
It’s a slot feature to look out for, even if only because of its intro showing a fragment of what could have been a typical 90’s cartoon. But before you get to this point, a lot is happening on the reels and mainly next to the reels. You’ll for sure notice Mister Piggy Armstrong having a good time at the right side of the reels. He’s getting more excited every time the Free Spins Countdown shows a lower number and getting closer to 1, the moment you’ll see what happens when pigs fly.
During the Main Game and during Free Spins, there will be a Wild substitution available to spice up the game. Wild symbols can appear on reels 2-5 and will, as always, substitute for all other symbols. No exceptions have been mentioned which doesn’t happen too often though.
Re-Spins in When Pigs Fly!™ will be responsible for a lot of excitement and Mister Piggy Armstrong will be with you during the process of growing excitement. You will have the opportunity to activate up to 5 re-spins with each re-spin changing the shape of the reels thanks to two new positions being activated. This means two new symbols too which will definitely help in achieving more wins and getting the Free Spins Countdown to one.
Ready, set, go!
Get ready for another extremely original theme and video slot developed by the industry’s most popular software developer. Catchy and funny animations will keep you captivated while innovative slot features in this game are offering you a chance to experience a level of win anticipation unheard of in online casino gaming.
