A slot game called The Pig Wizard Megaways was never going to be a super serious affair and the design here has a suitably slapstick feel, starting with the exceedingly bouncy backing. On the reels are A to 10 royal symbols as well as magic themed objects. It’s certainly light-hearted but it comes together very nicely.
Megaways game engine
The number of symbols on each reel changes with each spin. If they all reach the maximum number of rows, you’ll have 15,625 ways to create a winner. That’s not as big as some Megaways slot games but still offers plenty of opportunities.
Mystery Mirror modifiers
To the left of the reels you’ll see the Mystery Mirror. This can add special modifier extras if specific symbols appear in the mirror:
- Spinnus Repeatum feature: if you land a winning combination that is made up of the same symbol that appears in the Mystery Mirror, then you’ll trigger this streak spin bonus. The symbols from the triggering spin are held and a respin follows. These keep on coming as long as a new matching symbol lands.
- Magical Win Spin feature: If the pig wizard appears in the Mystery Mirror, he will conjure up extra wilds or transforming symbols. This new set of symbols is guaranteed to create a winning combination.
- Winnus Revealo feature: the pig wizard can also randomly appear and with a wave of his wand upgrade a symbol so that what was a losing spin becomes a winner.
Free spins with 50x multipliers
The Magic Spins feature is activated by landing 3 or more of the bonus symbol on the same spin – 3, 4, 5 or 6 of them will give you 10, 12, 15 or 20 Magic Spins. You can also win extra Magic Spins with no limits – just 2 will reward you with 5 more Magic Spins.
Boosting your winning chances here is a random multiplier which is added to each free spin. This can be anything from the standard 1x right up to a 50x multiplier. The Mystery Mirror features are active during the free spins too.
Supremely silly but playable
Was the world crying out for a Megaways version of The Pig Wizard? Probably not. Blueprint Gaming has done a good job with this new edition though. It’s kept the same anarchic design and added some potentially exciting new features.
It’s pretty volatile too with the variance in the medium to high category – you can win up to 10,000 times your stake on every free spin with the 50x multiplier. We enjoyed The Pig Wizard Megaways. It won’t be for everyone but if you don’t mind the very silly theme, there’s some decent extras on offer here. If you want something more hard-hitting uses the Megaways engine, Gods of Olympus Megaways is recommended.
