The Great Pigsby MegawaysDon your glad rags; you’re invited to a party of decadence, class and glamour in The Great Pigsby Megaways, the latest slot addition to the fabulous Pigsby series featuring expanding wilds and respins.
The Great Pigsby Megaways Review
The Great Pigsby Megaways, like its two elder cousins, The Great Pigsby and The Great Pigsby Megapays, is a stylish slot from Relax Gaming themed on The Great Gatsby. The novel needs no introduction, but if this is your first time at the lavish Pigsby party, you need to know more than the dress code. Set in a splendid mansion in Long Island, the game features a 6-reel setup complete with the popular Megaways mechanics. Winning symbols, however, do not cascade, but the game still offers up to 117,649 different ways to win on every spin. Feature-wise, one fundamental change the developer has made is to strip this self-made pig of all his four progressive jackpots, but has he lost his charm because of this?

The Great Pigsby Megaways Bonus Features
If you played The Great Pigsby and The Great Pigsby Megapays, you’ll find that the bonus features here are just as good as they were in the previous editions. The bonus round triggering system is still as random, but it’s nice to see expanding wilds returning with their usual multipliers. Let’s look at each of the slot’s features in case you missed the earlier titles.
Wilds are pretty great in The Great Pigsby Megaways. They can substitute for all paying symbols, and when they hit the screen, they’ll consistently expand, revealing a multiplier based on how many positions the wild covers on its respective reel.
As they expand, wilds spout a stream of coins at the piggy bank sitting atop the reels, eventually triggering a random event: the free spins bonus round, Great Pigsby Re-spin or the Wild Re-spin feature.
Scatters, wrapped in a golden envelope, show up during free spins only and when they do they add an extra 2 free spins to your spins balance.
When triggered, the bonus round awards 10 free spins during which, you’ll have one low value symbol deactivated on the reels. Deactivation means that for the round duration, all instances of the chosen royal symbol will be replaced with a mid or high-value one until all royal symbols disappear from the grid. The envelope symbols will still land, awarding an extra 2 free spins per scatter.
Great Pigsby Re-spin
During the Great Pigsby Re-spin feature, you’ll have up to 9 top-paying Pigsby symbols added to your grid before the reels stop spinning.
Whenever Wild Re-spin triggers, 2-5 reels will turn wild for a respin and all values attached to the wilds will multiply each other.
The Great Pigsby Megaways Jackpot
If there’s one thing missing in The Great Pigsby Megaways, it’s the progressive jackpot feature that we enjoyed so much in The Great Pigsby Megapays edition. Anyhow, the game still offers an impressive win potential of up to 20,000x your stake.
RTP and Volatility
While bonus features haven’t changed all that much, the key stats have fluctuated slightly from one edition to the next. The latest Great Pigsby Megaways edition combines high volatility with a 96.08% RTP.
