The Megaways engine has left a large footprint on the online slots industry and the largest game developers were quick to acquire a BTG license and produce their own Megaways content. NetEnt, however, has been shying away from all the hassle and followed its own path of development, seemingly unaffected by the Megaways craze. However, it has recently acquired Red Tiger, a studio that already has a Megaways license, and here we are, reviewing the first Megaways slot under NetEnt’s belt.

Piggy Riches Megaways is a 6 reeler, offering up to 117, 649 ways to win and a max win potential of 10,000 your stake, which translates to £100,000 max win potential.
As far as the theme and design go, the slot is just a Megaways version of NetEnt‘s popular Piggy Riches slot, so you should not expect drastic changes here.
Netent is well-known for its low volatility slots, so we were a bit surprised by the high volatility of Piggy Riches Megaways, and the 95.71% RTP, in particular. In comparison, most Megaways slots come with a RTP of at least 96%.
Piggy Riches Megaways utilises the cascading game mechanics where symbols forming a winning combination disappear and new ones drop in their place. The new symbols may also form a winning combination. Technically, you have the chance to score an unlimited number of wins in one spin.
Feature-wise, you may benefit from bonus rounds, free spins, multipliers. The Gentlemen Pig is an expanding symbol that awards you multipliers of up to x7.
The Lady Pig is the scatter. Land three scatters in one spin and you will be taken to the Wheel to determine the number of free spins you get.
Piggy Riches seems like a solid first Megaways attempt, and it is expected to hit all NetEnt/ Red Tiger casinos in January 2020. Meanwhile, have a look at Mystery Reels, the first Megaways slot, courtesy of Red Tiger.
