If breaking open Piggy Banks is your thing, you are in luck as the new Squealin Riches slot from Microgaming designed by Pear Fiction Studios is pretty much focused on these rewarding kinds of pigs!
Pear Fiction already has an impressive lineup of cartoon styled slots. Pretty much all of their back catalogue utilises this very polished cartoon styling. Here on Squealin Riches, we have been graced with a very pleasing visual design, including some great exploding piggy bank animations for the biggest wins.
This slot release is another Lock and Win style slot from Microgaming. This feature has been utilised in quite a few of their most recent releases and works in a very similar fashion to the Link and Win feature found on Thunderstruck Wild Lightning.
With a mixture of stake based Jackpots, Free Spins, Re-Triggers, Gambles, Bonus Wheels and some clever interactions between these features, there is certainly quite a bit to break down in terms of unique features.
Squealin Riches Base Gameplay
The base gameplay in Squealin Riches takes place on a standard 5x4 reel set and comes with 1024 winning ways. The reel strips are the usual mix of high and low paying symbols, wild symbols, bonus scatter symbols and some special Golden Coin symbols, which are central to this slots bonus features.
To the left of the reels, there are several different jackpots with values based on the current stake size, raise the stake size, and the values of these will increase, with the Epic Jackpot providing a max win of 5000x Stake.
Above the reels, you will notice a gold bar collection meter. This meter collects the golden coins from the reels. Once filled this will trigger the Jackpot Wheel for your chance at hitting any of these jackpots or even winning a free spins round trigger.
The special golden coins provide the main focus on this slot, so much so that the base game regular wins almost seem like a distraction from what is essential in this slot. Any of these symbols that land in view are collected in the collection meter. You trigger the Lock N Win bonus feature if you manage to land six or more of them in one single spin.
The regular free spins round require three bonus scatter to trigger, but there is also the ability to activate the Lock N Win from inside the free spins. It's probably way easier to do this as the golden coins seem way more prevalent in the bonus round.
