Fighting or Sushi - Why Choose?
Karate Pig was introduced by Microgaming to the online slots world in April, 2012. Its novelty and entertainment value quickly made it an international hit.
Karate Pig is a non-progressive jackpot game consisting of 5 reels and 40 paylines. What makes Karate Pig different from many other themed slots is that the reels are filled with such a seemingly completely unrelated hodgepodge of symbols-among
them, a sushi bar, jazz musician, fierce warrior, and various objects associated with the Far East like a Buddha and a bonsai tree. Assorted animals also get into the act, including the star of the show, dressed for martial arts, Karate Pig.
This is a pig of many talents. He is simultaneously a musician, master sushi chef, and Kung Fu fighting champion.
Watch Out for Wild Pigs
The Karate Pig logo is the game's wild symbol. As such, it can substitute for any other symbol, except the scatter symbol, with the capability of turning losing symbols into winning ones. If you succeed in getting five Karate Pig logos on a single
spin, one on all five positions of a payline, you will win a jackpot of 2,000 coins.
Two gold coin symbols anywhere on both the first and 5th reels give you 15 free spins with your winnings doubled. But, you could wind up with many more free spins, because if, while you are spinning for free, two gold coins show up again, the
free spins are retriggered.
The Karate Pig Sushi Chef acts as the game's scatter symbol. All you have to do is get 3 or more (position doesn't matter) during a regular spin and you trigger the bonus game. The first 7 times, you pick either the hammer bonus or the pork chop
bonus in an attempt to win prizes. If you are successful, you also receive a Karate belt in the colour associated with that particular bonus round, culminating in the coveted black belt, which opens up the final showdown-three intense rounds
of battle between Karate Pig and a scary opponent. If Karate Pig emerges victorious, so do you.
