Developer Relax Gaming has announced the launch of a brand-new video slot, The Great Pigsby Megapays.
The studio’s new game is a pig-based take on the popular novel, The Great Gatsby, which is built on the Megapays mechanic in which you can win any of the slot’s Mini, Midi, Major and Mega jackpots.
The Great Pigsby uses a 7×6 layout with up to 117,649 paylines and an RTP of 96.19% with high volatility, which means you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins over regular small ones.
Relax Gaming’s new slot also requires a bet of between £0.20 and £50 per spin, and its symbols include Pigsby himself, a female pig, a headpiece, a vinyl recorder, a cigarette and cup of whiskey, and the traditional A, K, Q, J, and 10 symbols too.
The Great Pigsby Megapays is available at all Relax Gaming-partnered casino operators, including Genesis Casino, Videoslots, PlayOJO, Casino Labs, Casino Gods, 44Aces, and numerous others.
The Great Pigsby Megapays comes with a slew of special features. For example, the game’s Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols on the reels. When a Wild symbol lands, it expands to cover the entire reel, and the Multiplier value on the symbol represents how many Wild symbols the reel represents.
A Wild symbol that lands and expands to cover an entire reel is collected into the Piggy Bank located above the reels. Each collected Wild gives you a chance to trigger the Free Spins mode, the Great Pigsby Respin, or the Wild Re-spin.
If the Free Spins mode is triggered, ten spins are awarded. Whenever a Scatter symbol lands, two additional spins are awarded one low-paying symbol is removed and replaced by a high or mid-paying symbol.
If the Wild Re-spin is triggered, you’re awarded a re-spin with the second to fifth reels are transformed into Wild symbols. Finally, if the Great Pigsby Re-spin is triggered, several Pigsby symbols are placed as overlay symbols on the reel area.
The Great Pigsby Megapays has four progressive jackpots; the Mini, Midi, Major, and Mega. Any one of the jackpots can be won via the Megapays feature, which can be randomly triggered from any bet. The higher your stakes, the likelier you are to trigger the feature.
When triggered, any of the low-paying symbols will be revealed as the Megapays symbol. A special spin is then triggered, and if one or more Megapays symbols appear, all other symbols are removed. Each instance of the Megapays symbol drops and locks into place, and a re-spin is triggered. This continues until no new Megapays symbols appear or until the Mega Jackpot is won.
The Megapays Ladder tracks each instance of Megapays symbols, and the final result determines the jackpot won. Four to seven instances trigger the Mini jackpot, eight to 11 instances trigger the Midi jackpot, up to 14 instances trigger the Major jackpot, and 15 or more instances trigger the Mega jackpot.
Simon Hammon, the CPO at Relax Gaming, said in a statement: “We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome The Great Pigsby back to our screens!
“He’s a firm fan-favourite, and we’re confident players will enjoy this release thanks to the immersive Megapays Jackpots and lucrative bonus features and mechanics.”
He added: “We always strive to drive differentiation at Relax, and I believe The Great Pigsby’s return showcases exactly what makes us special at Relax – offering an unbeatable catalogue of premium games loved by players the world over.”
The launch of The Great Pigsby Megapays comes after the release of other games by Relax Gaming, including the voodoo-based Hex, the Chinese-inspired Tiger Kingdom Infinity Reels, CasinoGrounds’ collaborative slot Beast Mode, the sci-fi game Space Miners, and Hazakura Ways, among others.
Alongside launching new games, Relax Gaming has also been striking content agreements to expand its aggregated content. Recent agreements have been made with Intouch Games, Blue Guru Games, Spribe, and Silverback via GAN.
