Appearance and Sound Effects

A strange lunar landscape greets you when you come to play When Pigs Fly. On the left-hand side of the screen, a space rocket is preparing to launch, and on the right-hand side, a male pig in an astronaut suit stands in front of a control tower. There's a sci-fi-inspired soundtrack that plays as the reels spin around, and plenty of clever animations such as the smoke which billows from the space rocket's thrusters and the pig giving you a thumbs-up.

The symbols which you can use to form winning combinations and trigger special features include five playing card symbols, green balloons, the game logo, the "WILD", the astronaut, a female pig, a winged helmet, and a fruit machine-style Bar symbol.

Bonuses and Special Features

The wild symbol in the When Pigs Fly slots game can appear on Reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 where it can substitute for all other symbols.

When you begin playing the game, you have 45 ways to win due to the layout of the reels, but every win grants one a free re-spin, and if more wins are created, you can enjoy a maximum of five re-spins.

And, if you create a win on the fifth re-spin, you receive eight free spins with 3,125 ways to win.


When Pigs Fly uses five reels, up to five rows of symbols, and up to 3,125 ways to win, and has an impressively generous RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 97.00%. The game lets you create winning combinations using three or more matching symbols in succession from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel.
