Game of the Week – Cash Pig
Cash Pig is the latest 5-Reel video pokie game from Booming Games. The game features a fun theme based on winning money and prizes in Las Vegas. It has multiple bonus features that will help you win big, including a free games feature with Minor Eliminations and Major Upgrades. Let’s learn more about this fun video pokie.
Go to Vegas and Become a Cash Pig
Cash Pig is the latest 5-Reel 30 payline pokie from Booming Games. The theme is simple. Go to Las Vegas and try to win fabulous cash and prizes.
The paytable is pretty simple for this one. There are minor and major symbols. Minor symbols are Royals. Major symbols are fancy watches, diamond rings, expensive cars, and a private jet. The Wild for this game is the Diamond. It substitutes for anything other than the scatter.
Like most modern video pokies, you have to make multi-line wins to turn a profit on most spins. Fortunately, there are some bonus features that can help you score some massive wins.
Piggy Bank Collector
During some spins, gold coins will appear on screen with varying dollar amounts. If the Gold Piggy Bank symbol falls on Reel 5, it will collect the gold coins and add that to your bankroll.
This feature is very luck-based. For a while, I had only hit this feature once. Then I hit it four times in the span of 30 spins. The win amounts wildly vary. My smallest win was 1x my bet while other times I won about 15x my bet. Your results will vary.
Free Spins With Eliminations and Upgrades
The champaign glasses are the scatter for this game. Get one on Reels 1, 3, and 5 to trigger the free games feature. You will get 12 free spins and the chance to boost your winnings through Minor Eliminations and Major Upgrades.
For Minor Eliminations, anytime one of the Royals makes a winning payline, the symbol is taken out of the game, and the symbols cascade. The symbols remain removed for the remainder of the game’s play.
For Major Upgrades, anytime one of the major symbols makes a payline, that symbol is upgraded to a golden version of the symbol. From that point, any future wins with that symbol are worth double.
I was able to trigger this feature once and was lucky enough to get all minor symbols eliminated and two of the major symbols upgraded. This resulted in a 30x win. This feature will surely be more profitable for those that are able to get the minor symbols eliminated quickly.
Cash Pig a Fun Game But a Ton of Variance
There are good points and bad points for this game. The good points are that the game has some killer bonus features and the opportunity to score massive prizes with the free games feature. However, the game seems to have a much higher variance than you’d expect from this type of game. Unfortunately, this game does not list an RTP, but I’d estimate that it is somewhere in the 95.5% range.
You’re going to have a lot of variance with this game. In some sessions, you could pull off a nice win where in others you will lose much larger amounts than normal. As such, I’d recommend playing smaller stakes to help offset some of the variances.
Cash Pig is available at Wild Card City, King Johnnie Casino, and most online casinos in Australia offering Booming Games pokies. If you’re looking for a good game to clear an online casino bonus, this may not be the best choice. However, if you don’t mind variance and want a game that gives you a chance to string together some massive wins, then you may want to give this game a try.
