While it may not sound pretty, Karate Pig’s artwork is actually pretty easy on the eyes. The symbols, in this original slot, are depictions of a cartoonish pig in various martial arts outfits and disguises. The game is fun and doesn’t take itself too seriously, while it still offers many features that similar games do not. With five reels, a staggering 40 paylines and a bonus game, Karate Pig is both functional and highly playable. Additionally, there is a multi-level free bonus game that players can activate under certain circumstances.
The Microgaming video slot game titled Karate Pig combines two different themes. The first is farm animals followed by a fighting theme that revolves around karate. This game is an enigma. The number of features included here will give the player the impression that this game carries significant jackpots. The disappointment sets in when they realize this is a low risk/low reward video slot game.
The game format comes with 5 reels and 40 pay lines. The player is allowed to wager between 1 and 5 coins with a coin value of between $.01 at a minimum and $.10 at a maximum. With a maximum jackpot of 50,000 coins, the game's largest possible payout is only $5,000. That's not much money for the amount of work required to get it.
All of the game's standard, low paying symbols are cool caricatures created around a karate theme. They include Buddha, a kitten, a Japanese musician, a sushi bar, a bonsai tree and enemy karate master. The game's wild symbol is represented by the Karate Pig. It's noteworthy that this symbol comes stacked and also serves as the bonus symbol if the player lands three or more on one pay line. As a wild symbol, it substitutes for everything except the scatter symbol. If it is used as a substitute in a winning hand, the winnings are doubled.
A gold coin is used as the scatter symbol, which only appears on reels 1 and 5. If the player should land both of them on the same spin, they will receive 15 free spins with a 2X multiplier. The scatter exists in the free spins round, which means free spins can be re-triggered.
If the player lands three or more bonus symbol, they earn the opportunity to play a three-tiered interactive bonus game. The objective of the bonus game if for the player to fight their way through all three levels (pork chop round, hammer round and the final showdown) and accumulate prizes. In the final showdown, they will encounter the enemy karate master who they must defeat for the a big payout.
Verdict: If it weren't for the restrictive jackpots, Karate Pig would rate as a decent game for players at all levels. As it stands, the game is best suited for beginners and novice. It's a shame because the bonus round is actually kind of fun while offering the player with a real challenge. As mentioned earlier, this game is a real enigma.
