What’s so different about that, you may wonder? Well, Willy and Chancho are pigs, and they strive to win the heart of Miss Southern Charm by playing traditional bluegrass music. Symbols include Golden Tickets, Willy playing his banjo, Chancho playing his fiddle, Miss Southern Charm and several other barnyard characters.
Both Willy and Chancho are Wild symbols – a feature which, in a nod to the bluegrass favourite Duelling Banjos, is referred to as Duelling Wilds – and can therefore serve as both single and mixed symbols. The Golden Tickets symbol is a Scatter, and when you get three or more on the reels at the same time you will trigger a Barnyard Bash feature.
The Barnyard Bash awards up to 80 free spins, and in this part of the game both Willy and Chancho will appear more frequently, making it even easier to win big. As if that wasn’t enough, players can retrigger more free spins with no limit on the number of free spins awarded, so it is possible to amass some seriously hefty payouts here.
Graphics in this game are suitably fun and cartoonish, and there are some very nice background touches to make you smile, so do look out for those. However, it is the bluegrass soundtrack which impresses most, so if you are someone who knows your Foggy Mountain Breakdown from your Cripple Creek, you will be in your element here.
‘Oink Country Love is a visually rich slot that introduces two new characters who act as duelling wilds,’ said David Reynolds, Microgaming's game publisher. ‘We expect this game to get players excited with a special feature that can retrigger an unlimited amount of free spins to unlock some big rewards.’
Oink Country Love will launch on desktop and mobile at Microgaming venues on Wednesday 2 August.
