This Piggy Bank Farm slot release from December 2020 is another nice Play’n GO machine, taking the action to a comedy farmyard, complete with rustic wooden reels and a backdrop of barns and cornfields. Play’n GO has been in the slots business since 1997, and they know what they’re doing. Their enormous catalogue of games now runs to more than 250 titles, which includes some of the biggest games in the UK right now.
The Rich Wilde series is massive, and the original Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead remain this company’s biggest hit. This game is everywhere, often tied to free-spins offers, and has now spawned multiple sequels, off-shoots, and related titles. Their other big titles include Moon Princess, Fire Toad, and Fire Joker. Recent releases include Gemix 2, Fire Toad, and yet another Rich Wilde title, Rich Wilde and the Amulet of Dead.
The Piggy Bank Farm slot game is all about fun. The graphics are cartoony and friendly, and the soundtrack is a sort of approximation of US country music. The game offers giant symbols – these are the piggy banks of the title – and a set of free spins that could offer the big prizes.
Play’n GO games are attractive to players, and here you’ll be attracted by 5,000-times stake prizes in free spins courtesy of a 10-times multiplier.
The game has 50 pay lines and a possible top prize of 3,553-times stake. It is high volatility, which means that bigger prizes are paid out but they tend to be paid out less often. The game comes with RTP ranges, which we’ll discuss in our conclusion.
Should you go down on this farm?
Let’s have a look!
Play’n GO games have a standard set-up and you’ll see it in action here.
At the centre of a control panel is a sliding scale of bet values that can be moved with controls or by clicking or tapping on the value of your choice. At the left of the panel is an information button to open up more rules and the paytable. Next to that is the balance window, balanced on the other side of the screen by the betting window. Information flows above the center of the panel.
The spin control and an auto spin control (these will be outlawed in the UK soon) are at the right of the screen. There are more controls and options in the frame of the game.
Click on the I button and you’ll find a paytable
The lowest paying symbols are cards:
In the farmyard, we meet
The farmer pays 8, 16, and 50-times stake, and is a wild, subbing in for everything except the scatter symbol.
You can win up to 5,000-times your bet in this round. You have three lives at the start of the round and every time you make a spin and there’s no piggy bank symbol you lose a life. When they’re all gone the round ends and the prizes in each bank are revealed, added up, and paid to the player.
This is a good fun game that is a great addition to the already strong Play’n GO catalogue and will probably have a decently long life.
There’s a nice friendly feel to the game in a relatively unusual theme so it has a chance to stand out. The figures are OK: high volatility suits some players more than others, and you need to know you’re betting safely if you get to the top of a £100 betting limit.
Otherwise, there are lots to enjoy, particularly in the bonus rounds, which are interesting and fun.
However, this game comes with RTP ranges that start at 94.26%. That’s very low when the average in the industry is around 96%. And if you think that RTP ranges have been introduced to the industry in order to award players higher RTPs and more winnings then we have a golden bean or two to sell you. They are introduced to reduce pay-outs and they also introduce an unnecessary complication to one of the only metrics that players could actually use to judge the likely performance of a game. We always add a health warning to RTPs, which are long-term measures that don’t work as predictors, but they were at least relatively simple to understand. Now players need to check the situation where they are playing, and they can be fairly sure that they’ll be getting as bad a deal as it is possible to offer. What a shame!
This is still a good, fun game that looks great and plays just as well as any other of the Play’n GO titles. If you like farm games then check out The Great Chicken Escape too.

Slots are just a game of chance that gives random results on every single spin. Unfortunately, no one can rely on slot machines to make a steady income.
RNG means random number generator. This technology must be implemented in all approved casino games such as slot machines to ensure fair and safe play. All approved slot machines you find on our website have undergone a long overhaul before launch.
If you pick good quality sites and take elementary precautions – as you should all the time you are online – then yes, you can play free slots with complete peace of mind.
You can win money on free slots if you play games offered to you by casino sites as “free spins”. However, in order to collect your winnings, you’re going to have to spend a lot of your own money in the vast majority of cases.
