Golden Pig Good News is an online slot from Iconic Gaming. 

It has five reels, three rows and nine paylines. There is no record at present of the game’s RTP or variance level. It is based on images and ideas from Chinese mythology, principally the lucky golden pig. It features wilds and scatters.


Iconic Gaming is a company based in Asia and specialising primarily in games for the Asian audience. Given the popularity of themes from this part of the world, it would seem likely that Iconic Gaming slots can bring something fresh and authentic to the sub-genre. It’s interesting to compare this game with something like Maltese company Booming Games’s Golden Lucky Pigs to see how different both the look and tone are. The Iconic brand is positioned as being on the verge of an international breakthrough into the best slot casinos in the world. They just might be original enough to make it happen.

Golden Pig Good News has a five-reel, three-column grid with nine pay lines. These are fixed so you must play all nine. The minimum bet is 0.90 and the maximum is 450.00. There are 10 regular symbols: a wad of cash, a rake, a silk gown, a green decoration, a blue decoration and the top five playing cards. The wild is a one-eyed warrior, and the scatter is the lucky golden pig.

Theme, Graphics and Soundtrack

Falling stardust, strings of lucky gold coins and blinking flower buds against a theatrical velvet backdrop surround the grid. The reels are golden with floral corner decorations, and the symbols are realised in an unfamiliar style. The visuals simply don’t look like something drawn up in a Western studio - they look genuinely Asian, which is very refreshing. The sound effects are well done, and the soundtrack is a jaunty tune played on what sound like authentic Chinese instruments. This is quite different in its design from the usual generic Asian offerings we’re used to.

Golden Pig Good News RTP and Variance

The makers have not released details of the game’s RTP and variance, and no reliable independent measure exists at the time of writing.

How to Play Golden Pig Good News

  1. Golden Pig Good News has nine paylines. Matching symbols must appear consecutively from left to right starting from the farthest left. Only the highest winning combination is paid for each line.
  2. Click the large minus or plus buttons to scroll through the available bet sizes.
  3. Click the small play button towards the top right to display the auto mode button to the left of the main play button. Click this new button to select the number of automatic spins you require: 20, 50, 100, 300 or continuous until cancelled. The number of spins left will be displayed on the play button. If you wish to exit auto mode, just click on the number.
  4. At the same time as the auto button appears in place of the minus, you’ll see a lightning bolt has replaced the plus button. Click this for fast play and click it again to exit.
  5. Press the play button to spin the reels at the current bet level. Alternatively, press the space bar to spin. You can stop the reels early by pressing the space bar or the play button again at any time.
  6. The wild can replace any symbols, including the scatter. This only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. It doubles your win.
  7. The scatters can appear anywhere on the reels and award prizes, whether they are on a pay line or not. Land at least two and they will pay from left to right or from right to left. Five scatters will pay 100x the current bet, four will pay 10x, three will pay 5x and two will pay 1x.
  8. We are supporters of safe gambling initiatives such as BeGambleAware. We encourage you always to play gambling games responsibly, and if you are playing for real money please make sure you stay within affordable limits. When the game is no longer fun you should stop playing.

Golden Pig Good News Review: Our Verdict

While it looks good, there’s no denying that this is a very simple game with no bonus features and not even the almost obligatory free spins. The maximum payout is very low, and we do not know how well it performs in terms of RTP and variance. We feel that the design gets high marks, but the game play only fairly low ones.

What is the RTP and variance of Golden Pig Good News?

Unfortunately, there is no reliable information on the Return to Player or the variance of Golden Pig Good News.

What are RTP and variance?

RTP is Return to Player, expressed as a percentage to indicate the average level of a player’s winnings compared to the amount wagered in the course of a session. Variance is an idea borrowed from poker. It measures the size and the frequency of pay-outs. A high-variance game will award occasional large pay-outs, while low-variance games will award little and often.

Is there a secret to winning online slots?

Unfortunately, there is no clever way of beating the game, as slots operate purely according to chance, and there is no correspondence between one spin and the next.

Are the spins genuinely random?

Yes, completely. The developers use random number generation algorithms to spin the reels, and these operate entirely at random.
