Symbols and Winning Combinations of Piggy Holmes Slot

Winning CombinationsThe backdrop to GameArt’s latest offering is beautifully illustrated, perfectly capturing the gloom and mysteriousness of Victorian London at night. The street lights and occasional lit window gently cast a soft glow in the night, illuminating dark streets and draw your attention to the multitude of small details.

The 5×3 grid reel, with its elegant bronze decorations, fits the setting almost too perfectly. Players will also have their attention drawn to the well-crafted symbols on the reels, which would not be out of place if found in a 19th-century casino.

We were also pleasantly surprised by the music score playing away in the background. It flawlessly captures the feeling of a Victorian-era mystery, it often had our minds drifting to the classic murder mysteries.

The reels are populated by eleven symbols, eight of which are regular symbols while the remaining three are special. The eight regular are:

  • Low worth – A, K, Q, J
  • Medium worth – Smoking tobacco pipe, magnifying glass
  • High worth – Handcuffs, revolver

The special symbols are represented as:

  • Wild – Piggy Holmes portrait – the wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols, excluding scatter and golden piggy coin symbols.
  • Scatter – Pig trotter print surrounded by gold filigree and the text ‘Piggy Scatter’.
  • Golden Piggy Coin – Gold Coin with Piggy Holmes in profile.

Bonus Features of Piggy Holmes Slot

Bonus imageUnlike many modern slot games, Piggy Holmes is not overloaded with special features but the ones it does contain are well thought out and a welcome addition to the game.

When six or more Golden Piggy Coins appear on the reels it triggers the first of two special features, Piggy Respins. The feature takes place on special reels where every symbol position is replaced with a Golden Piggy Coin and players start the feature with three respins. The prizes range from simple credit to the larger Mini, Minor, and Major Jackpots. Every time a Golden Piggy Coin reveals a prize the respins will also reset to three, the aim is to fill all fifteen spaces with prize coins as that’s how you win the Grand Jackpot.

The second special feature included is one which most slot fans will be familiar with, Free Spins. The free spins feature is triggered when three Scatter symbols appear on reels one, three, and five. Players are awarded six free spins as well as a three times multiplier bonus. Gigantic symbols are also in play on the special free spin reels, should the gigantic scatter symbol appear an additional three free spins will be awarded. It is also possible to trigger Piggy Respins during the free spins.


Not only is the Piggy Holmes slot pleasing to look at and listen to, but it is also great fun to play as the special features trigger often enough to keep players interested. As a slot with medium volatility and a 96.10% RTP, the wins are not frequent but they are big.

We recommend giving Piggy Holmes a try, even if it’s just for the artwork and music. This slot is bound to become a fan favorite and staple of every slot fan’s list of must-play slot games.
