Pork Knox Review
When the United States government needs something hidden away securely, they place it in Fort Knox. It is one of the most secure locations in the globe, which captures the imaginations of many.
Including NetEnt’s artists, who were probably hungry when they came up with this idea. Pork Knox takes us to the most secure piggy banks on the globe. Will you be able to get past all the security and take home the big prize?
- Medium volatility with a progressive jackpot
- Twenty fixed paylines
- Available special features include mystery symbols, free spins, and Cash Stacker
When we were young, we were told to save up extra cash in our piggy banks. Now, we are looking for something different. We want to grab as many piggy banks as possible, smash them up and make off with the loot.
Helping us accomplish that are mystery icons and three Pick Me bonuses, including free spins. The top prize in this slot is the progressive jackpot, awarded using a special feature.
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
Combining piggy banks with a max security setup is a rather amusing theme, we have to admit. Add NetEnt’s traditional polish to it, and you have a gorgeous release on your hands.
The backgrounds are designed really well, especially the one that appears during free spins. Sadly, the same cannot be said for symbol designs.
They offer a mix of wealth and luxury on the one hand and the simplicity of playing card suits on the other.
You play this game on a five-reel, three-row board with twenty fixed paylines. Because the number of paylines is fixed, casino members cannot toggle them to decrease your bet.
To win, find at least three matching icons in adjacent positions, following an active payline. Winning combinations must start with the leftmost reel, or the associated cash prize will not be paid.
Mystery symbols can appear in any position on the playing field. When they land, they will transform into another icon. The only symbol they cannot turn into is the Scatter.
Find three Scatters to unlock the Pick Me bonus. This special feature can grant one of three bonuses, depending on what you choose. Players can unlock a cash prize, the Cash Stacked bonus, and free spins.
Instant Cash grants a cash prize, depending on the number of Scatters. You can win a maximum of 1000x your total bet for a five Scatter prize.
Cash Stacker is played on separate reels with a 5-6-7-6-5 grid. During the special feature, only piggy bank icons can appear on the board.
Every Cash Stacker has a random value ranging from 0.25x to 15x your total stake. These symbols will move to the lowest unoccupied space on its reel.
The bonus starts with three spins. If a new icon lands on the playing field, the number of spins is reset back to three.
Completely filling rows two, three, four, and five awards a 2x, 3x, 4x, and 5x multiplier. Completely filling reels two, three, and four grants the mini, mega or midi jackpot.
Pork Knox Free Spins
Three, four, or five Scatters unlock five, ten, or fifteen free spins. During free spins, all cash prizes are multiplied by 3x. Finally, free spins cannot be retriggered.
Where To Play Pork Knox?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
The RTP for Pork Knox is 96.02%. This is only slightly higher than the current slot average, which sits at 96%.
You can bet between $0.20 and $100 on each spin.
The luckiest players will be able to take home an impressive progressive jackpot win. The only way to do so is to get lucky and hope Cash Stacker appears when the Pick Me bonus rolls around.
NetEnt’s slot shows us that feature-heavy games do not have to be boring. Each special feature has its place and feels useful to some degree.
The choice of theme is also fantastic! It is made even better thanks to the talented artists who brought the idea to life.
Overall, we had a blast playing this game. We wholeheartedly recommend trying it at some point! We rate this release 3 out of 4 stars.
