Top Microgaming Gaming Casinos

Seeing the name of the slot alone was enough for me to give it a shot. And just as its name says, this Microgaming game offers loads of fun thanks to the unusual employment of an otherwise very traditional and popular sport – karate. So, karate fans, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and find out what this whole Japanese shindig is all about!

“Karate Pig” Characteristics

It’s not easy to write anything negative about a slot that makes you smile from the moment you see it. However, an unbiased approach is essential, so we here will point both its strengths and weaknesses. As mentioned before, one of its major strengths is the theme which introduces you to a karate master-pig, and its numerous friends. Therefore, on the reels, you will find a smiling Buddha, a cute kitten, a Japanese musician, but also a cool sushi bar, a bonsai tree and another fierce karate master – the pig’s foe, etc. All these make the play more enjoyable, but on the other hand, they don’t bring much money, as the base game wins are rarely lucrative.

On the other hand, the situation is significantly improved by the special features which include stacked wilds, scatters, free spins and a bonus feature, all of which work in your favor and may improve the effect of this slot on your casino balance.

Another benefit of this 5-reel, 40-payline video slot is its affordability, as it can be enjoyed by most types of players. This is thanks to the range of its coin denominations which go from 1 to 10 cents, and the possibility to place up to 5 coins per payline, thus boosting the bet amount to the maximum 200 coins per spin.

Special Features

What’s interesting about “Karate Pig”, and not in a good way, is that its spins with Stacked Wilds are not as generous as you’d think, considering that you may often get a spin with two wild reels and still earn no prize in them, or score just a small one, even lower than your bet.

On a brighter note, the other two special features are not only more generous, but also interesting and engaging. Namely, the free spins are activated by two scattered medals on reels 1 and 5. If you’re lucky enough to get them, you’ll receive 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier and the chance to be retriggered. As for the other, bonus feature, it’s awarded by three or more karate pig bonus icons anywhere on the reels. This is a multi-stage bonus, so you can earn belts for completing any of the two bonus rounds on offer. In both Pork Chop and Hammer Bonus, you help the pig show off its karate skills and in return get the hefty prizes it earns for you. However, once you collect the last, black belt, you’ll enter the Final Showdown, in which you fight with your arch-opponent and earn another set of prizes.


This is a perfectly enjoyable title, despite its low pays in the base game. Therefore, if gambling to you is not all about money, but more about the fun factor, this is the title for you. And who knows, perhaps you’ll end up the winner in the Final Showdown!

    Well, well,well! I now have seen that this slot can pay out. I was playing a free tournament and came in 2nd or 3rd. Won a prize. I hit about $1000.00 when I was playing $2.00 bet, wilds filled the screen and I then saw my $1000 or so win! what a time, now I will try playing it one day with my own money and see what else it can do, really nice to see this, what time I had.

    What I found strange at this slot is that when it was launched I managed to won a lot playing it. After a while, only a few times I managed to win something. After that, everywhere I played Karate Pig slot only took my money. It a nice slot but I don`t know why don`t pay me anymore. I play different coin size but nothing.

    If you are looking for entertaining slot with funny bonuses and still pretty good potential for big wins then karatepig is your choice! Stacked wilds on every reels and 2 multiplier during free spins. The karate bonus is very funny and actually pays some nice medium wins. Really good audio and graphics are not that bad but could be a bit better i think

    Seems like this is like Playtech's White King slot, I don't play it often but I can understand why people play it, the stacked wilds are addictive. I never had the free spins, would have been cool to play that round once.

    I play this game in free slot tournaments. It is not my favourite game, and dont play it much anymore when I deposit. I did at the beginning but as I got to know the games and how the paid out, this one just never paid out that much for me, so I save it for playing in free tournaments.
  • Very low variance game I think, I have mainly only played this in the slot tournaments but it seems clear that its not a game designed to deliver an amazingly huge win - even the jackpot seems rather low,as 800,000 coins at max bet of 200 coins = just 400x stake??? If that is correct it is very low indeed for a Microgaming slot. Not that this is a terrible thing per se - afterall not everybody likes the ultra high variance 243 ways games that MG seems intent on pumping out every other week at the moment. I would have liked to see just a little bit more in the features though in truth - the karate chop style bonus bit never really pays more than about 50x bet I think and the free spins with just 2x multiplier are similarly hard to achieve anything decent from. Still, it is cute and fun though ! :)

    Cool game. My best passage during the game was when the total reels 1, 2, and 3, were covered with wild symbols, then my bet was 80 coins and the prize won were 8,000 coins. Although I did not get a single round of free spins, I could get a bonus round where the pig defeat in three rounds to a big wild boar, and it was ok too, but for me, “stacked wilds” is the best special feature of this fun game.
