Smash the Pig is a perennial favorite among slot players – some would say it’s a smash hit!
In the main game, Smash the Pig plays like a very traditional slot. The game is a five-reel slot with twenty-five pay lines. The game will payout for three, four, or five identical symbols in a row. The rows can be read from left to right or right to left. The symbols on the slots include traditional playing card symbols ranging from a Jack to an Ace. There is also an icon for a hammer (for smashing the pig!), a coin, a stack of cash, and bonus game symbols (usually pigs). To the right of the reels is a cartoonish Luck Meter which will fill up during the bonus rounds and offer you more chances for random multipliers.
Three, four, or five bonus symbols will start the Pig Smashing Bonus! At the beginning of this bonus round, the player will be awarded a random amount of luck – which will be indicated by how much their Luck Meter fills up to the right of the reels. After the Luck Meter fills, the player will be shown a field of piggy banks and instructed to start selecting banks. Each piggy bank will reveal a random prize of a multiplier -ranging from 1x to 20x the total bet! In most cases, every piggy bank that is smashed will lead to a decrease in the Luck Meter – however some piggy banks can actually increase the amount of Luck in your Meter.
If all the piggy banks on the screen are picked and there is remaining Luck in the Luck Meter, new little piggy banks will appear on the screen and additional Luck will be added to the Meter. The Pig Smashing Bonus round will continue until the player runs out of Luck – at which point the player will return to the main base game.
There is one more bonus feature to Smash the Pig – the scatter bonus. Players can trigger the Smash the Pig scatter bonus when three or more scattered pig symbols appear on the reels. In the scatter bonus, a few piggy banks will pop up on the screen and the players will be prompted to pick a pig. Players will choose a pig and win random credit multipliers (anywhere from 1x to 20x the total bet). Other prizes in the scatter bonus include Pick Again, Win All, or Win Bonus. In Pick Again, players will be prompted to pick a second pig. In Win All, players will smash all the pigs and receive all the prizes on screen, and in Win Bonus, players will immediately trigger the Pig Smashing Bonus Round described earlier.
