The Pig Wizard is a colourful and interesting game from Blueprint Gaming. It is loosely themed on the popular Harry Potter series of books and films, as you will see once you start playing. The Pig Wizard offers four different bonus games along with Wild and Bonus symbols. It even has a progressive jackpot too!
How to Play
Starting play is pretty simple: just use the + and - symbols next to the 'Total Bet' window to determine your wager. Whatever you bet is spread across all 20 fixed paylines. So a bet of 2.00 credits would amount to 0.10 per payline.
Initiate a single, manual spin by clicking the 'Spin' button at the far right. You can also choose to let the game spin for you by clicking the 'Auto Play' button. You decide the number of spins to be played automatically; they only stop once all have been concluded, you trigger a bonus, you run out of credits, or you click the 'Stop' button.
Magical Map Bonus
If you land Bonus symbols on reel 1, 3, and 5 in standard play, you will trigger the Magical Map Bonus. This map presents you with a series of symbols from which you will choose one, launching one of the following four bonus games:
Magic Mirror Free Spins – This is a free spins game featuring mystery mirrors that may randomly change into other symbols to create winning combinations. You can also win additional free spins. Free spinning continues automatically until none remain.
Progressive Jackpot – Revealing the Progressive Jackpot symbol automatically awards the standing prize that has gradually accumulated during game play. After awarding the prize, the game offers the player a chance to choose from the map again. Please note that the Progressive Jackpot cannot be won twice in the same Magical Map bonus.
Squeal or No Squeal – This is a classic picking game that offers you ten different spell books to choose from. With your first pick, you might win a cash prize. You can keep that prize to end the round or trade it for a chance to pick again. The game continues until all ten spell books have been revealed, you choose to stop, or your choice reveals the Collect symbol.
Trail of Magic – Roll the dice and watch your character move across the screen collecting various prizes. The green potion ends the bonus round when you land on it.
The main appeal of The Pig Wizard is the progressive jackpot that doesn't require spinning to win. Just make the right choice during the Magical Map bonus and you could be in for some very big winnings!
All winning combinations must originate from the far left position during both standard and bonus play. Only one win is awarded per payline, but coincidental wins on multiple paylines are all awarded. The 'Total Win' box at the bottom of the screen will let you know how much you've won on each spin.
0.13% of ever stake will be placed into the reserve pot. This means, when the Jackpot King is won, the reserve pot will be used to start the jackpot again. Overall, the jackpot is funded by the initial seed, and 0.86% of each stake, with the additional 0.13% being placed into the reserve pot.
