Piggy Bank Farm slot review
Join farmer Joe, who planted plastic and gold coins to grow crops of piggy banks. That’s the somewhat humorous backstory that suits the style of Piggy Bank Farm well, and there is always a certain satisfaction in smashing piggy banks. You’ll get plenty of that here, in both of the bonus rounds, as they are intimately intertwined with each other.
You can place bets between 10p and £100, and the rest of the math model also follows the standard Play’n Go formula. The visuals are nicely done as usual, and the redneck soundtrack might make you wanna “squeal like a pig” (rip Burt Reynolds). While there is nothing really new to see here, the game has some entertaining and thrilling moments, not least if you manage to build up some solid piggy bank clusters.

Piggy Bank Farm slot Features
Ole’ farmer Joe is the wild symbol, and he can land on any reel to step in for all regular symbols. He also pays 50x for 5 on a payline. Other than that, the base game doesn’t offer much in terms of features. There are 2 different bonus rounds in this game however, and we’ll take a closer look at them both below.
We’ll start with the Piggy Bank Spins round, which is triggered by landing a hammer symbol on reel 5 in the base game. This is a Hold & Spin feature, and you start out with 3 spins. Only piggy banks or blanks will land on the reels, and each new piggy bank becomes sticky and resets the number of spins to 3 again.
You can merge piggy banks to form 2x2, 3x3 and 4x4 clusters. The cash value of the piggy banks are not revealed until the feature ends. All the piggy banks are then smashed open by the hammer, and the cash prizes are combined into your total win.
Larger piggy bank clusters pay more than smaller ones, and there is a jackpot worth 500x your stake to be won here. This happens if you manage to build a cluster that fills the whole screen with a 5x4 mega Piggy Bank symbol.
The regular Free Spins round is triggered when you land scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time. This gives you 8 free spins to start with, and the good news is that you can trigger the Piggy Bank Hold & Win feature from within the free spins round also. This is done by landing the hammer symbol anywhere in sight (not just on reel 5, like in the base game).
If you land more than one hammer symbol, you will benefit from a multiplier during the Piggy Bank Spins. This multiplier can go as high as 10x. This lifts everything up to a whole new platou, and it means that the 5x4 mega cluster is worth up to 5,000x your stake.
You can also get an unlimited amount of extra free spins during the bonus round. You get 3 extra spins added to your tally when you land scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 during the feature. In theory, you can trigger the Piggy Banks feature many times during a bonus round, which can lead to very solid total payouts.
The 200 Spins Piggy Bank Farm slot Experience
We had ourselves a pretty good time testing this game, and we like the funny backstory it comes with and the lighthearted style. Anyway, you can see how we fared by hitting the play button on the brief and edited highlights video below.
Play’n Go churns out a steady stream of quality games at a high tempo, and most of them are in the same groove, so to speak. Piggy Bank Farm is such a game, as it’s very typical for this developer. The math model, with the high volatility, and the 5,000x potential, is as expected. Nothing wrong with that really (except for the RTP ranges), and we certainly enjoyed our 200 spins test session.
You will not find anything unusually thrilling in this game though. The bonus round can get interesting if you trigger some solid Piggy Bank Spins within it, and it’s kind of fun to see what the larger piggy bank symbols reveal in the end. It certainly will keep you on the edge when things go well, but those moments can be few and far between.
- Piggy Bank Spins “Hold & Win” with 500x jackpot
- Bonus round with multiplier Piggy Bank Spins
