App description

‘Pig Slot Machines’ is a simulated casino style gambling game where players risk in game currency on playing a farmyard animal themed slot machine. The player clicks a button to spin the machine, and they win money when then get matching animal characters in a row. This game is not recommended to people under the age of 18 years.

Reviewers comments

There are four worlds where the player can play slot machines. The free version of the game has two and you must pay to unlock the other two. However, the worlds do not seem to vary at all.

The slot machine is themed with cute farm yard animals such as pigs and cows, which might make it more appealing to younger players.

The player can choose how much in game currency they want to bet on each spin. When the player matches the same characters together they win money. When you win there are also lots of exciting sounds and the screen flashes ‘Big Win’. The player also progresses through levels when they win.

In App purchasing

The player has the option to buy more coins with real money. These coins are then used to continue playing the slot machine.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
