Starting with the Piggy Bank Spins round, this is activated when you land a hammer symbol on reel 5 while playing the base game. This activates a Hold & Spin feature, with you starting with 3 spins. Only piggy banks or blanks can land on the reels, each new piggy bank landed becomes sticky and the number of spins will be reset to 3 again.
Piggy banks can be merged to form 2×2, 3×3, and 4×4 clusters. However, the cash value of the piggy banks will not be revealed until the end of the feature when all of the piggy banks are smashed open by the hammer, with the cash prizes been combined into your total win. The larger piggy bank clusters will pay the most while the smaller clusters pay less. There is also a jackpot worth 500x your stake to be won here. This will happen if you manage to build a cluster that fills up the whole screen with a 5×4 mega Piggy Bank symbol.
The Normal Free Spins round is activated upon landing scatter symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5 at the same time. You will then be awarded 8 free spins, to begin with, what’s more, you can activate the Piggy Bank Hold & Win feature from within the free spins round also. To achieve this you need to land the hammer symbol anywhere insight and not just on reel 5, like in the base game.
Landing more than one hammer symbol will allow you to benefit from a multiplier during the Piggy Bank Spins. This multiplier can go up as high as 10x, meaning that the 5×4 mega cluster will be worth up to 5,000x your stake.
An unlimited amount of extra free spins can also be awarded to you during the bonus round. You will get 3 extra spins added to your tally each time you land scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 while the feature is active. This means you can activate the Piggy Banks feature many times while a bonus round is active, leading to a very fantastic payout.
