What Does the Wild Counter in Rich Little Piggies Mean?

Rich Little Piggies triple pig pop

Some slot machines have counters that increase until a bonus is triggered. How each slot handles these counters, and what they signify, can differ. Here’s an example:

Rich Little Piggies Hog Wild – Why does the Wild says 30; yet, it goes over that (40+), as in Brian’s video August 14, 2023? I had 100 Wild; yet, mine only was 18 wilds.

Here’s the video in question Christel is talking about:

Brian triggers the bonus with 30 wilds on the counter, yet over 40 wilds appear over the course of 16 spins. That’s because the wild counter on the pig refers to how many wilds are added to the reels for the duration of the bonus, not how many wilds will land over the course of the bonus.

It’s easy to understand the potential confusion. There’s other games like Regal Riches, where the various counters are an indication of how many wilds you’re going to get. On that game, when you get the bonus, the wild counter is reduced by one for every wild that is added to a particular spin, with all the remaining wilds being distributed on the final spin.

Part of the reason the counter may work differently on Rich Little Piggies is the number of spins is variable, itself being established by one of the other piggies with its own counter. So the idea that it would have to spread the wilds more thinly might diminish the value of the upgrade relative to the value of the free spin counter upgrade.

With these three pot/pigs/etc. games, each upgrade is designed to enhance the others, so having more wilds on the reels and more spins is expected to make the bonus better than getting either by itself.

In summary, counters and what they signify are going to be specific to the game in question, so it helps to review the pay table to know what each aspect of the game signifies and what you get for it.
