It’s not often you come across a slot where you find a pair of pigs playing country music. It’s also not often that you find a slot where a pair of pigs try to win the hearts of a hen, a horse, a ewe, a cow and a daisy duke style pig. This slot features both of these, as the pigs try to woo their love interests during a barn dance.
The game play has some enjoyable unique aspects. First, both male pigs act as wild symbols. Teaming up, they can ensure those big wins are never far away. The scatter symbol can appear more than once on a reel, leading to a situation where you can win a huge number of free spins. Read on to find out how.
Country Love is a five-reel slot which has a set number of 45 win-lines – this number possibly relating to the musical nature of the slot (if you’re too young to get this reference, it was a popular speed for vinyl records!). Wins are paid from when you line up 3 or more symbols from left to right on a win line.
The two male pig characters act as the wild symbols. One is a pig dressed in a blue check shirt and happily plays a fiddle. The other is dressed in a red waistcoat and appears delighted to be playing the banjo. Both of these wilds will substitute for any other symbols in the game apart from the scatter symbol. Land five of each pig in a row on a win line and you’ll pick up a prize of 1,000 coins, while four in a row pays 300 coins. As an added bonus, landing a combination of five of these pigs on a win line also pays out 500 coins.
The daisy duke style pig is the leading love interest in the game and has a pay-out of 225 coins for the maximum five. The buxom looking hen is next on the pay table at 175 coins. The horse, the cow and the slightly confused looking ewe each offer a top win amount of 100 coins. The standard symbols are completed by the playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.
The scatter symbol in the game is represented by a bunch of golden bank notes. These can appear twice on reels two and three and this gives the symbol a very interesting dynamic. Firstly, the scatter wins will now go all the way up to seven symbols, with a top win of 150 times your bet if all seven make an appearance.
To enter the free spins feature you need to land at least one scatter symbol on adjacent reels from left to right. Land them on 3, 4 or 5 adjacent reels and you’ll win 5, 10 or 20 free spins. However, this is not quite the end of the story. Land a second scatter on reels two or three and your number of spins is doubled. Land a second scatter on each of reels 2 and 3 and your number of spins is multiplied by 4. The best-case scenario sees you win an incredible 80 free spins. Land those scatters again during the free spins and the feature will be retriggered, so you could even exceed the magic 80.
During the base game, this slot plays out in the front of the farm, with the barn in the background. Corn sways in the background and the leaves of the trees move with the wind. The reels have a wooden texture and each of the animal symbols bring their own character to the reels. Animation when you win brings these symbols to life further. Throughout play, you can hear the sound of the two leading pigs playing their distinctive country music. Land the feature and the action moves to the barn itself, until the farmer fires his gun to signal the end!
Oink Country Love is an entertaining and humorous slot throughout. The subject matter is certainly unique – I’d have loved to have been a fly on the wall when this slot was first discussed. This original theme is brought to life by the impressive graphics and the uplifting soundtrack. The gameplay is original too. A slot featuring two wilds is certainly not usual, while the chance to land seven scatters is not something you’ve ever seen before.
