It’s a non-progressive slot with five reels and forty pay-lines, and it comes complete with stacked wilds, scatters, free spins, a multi-level bonus game, and a top jackpot payout of 50,000 coins.
It's fun, cartoon-style theme is bound to put a smile on any slot lover’s face, and the oriental soundtrack with a rousing drumbeat perfectly compliments the characters on the reels. They include the Karate Pig, a laughing Buddha, Bonsai Tree, Smiling Kitten, a Plate of Sushi, a Musician, a Wise Master, and fierce-looking competitors.

Just to confuse matters, but for a very good reason, Karate Pig slot game also includes a bonus scatter symbol. It is represented by the Bonus Pig symbol, and when three or more of these come into view on the reels, you’ll activate the multi-level bonus game. Initially, you’ll get to choose whether to enter the Pork Chop or the Hammer bonus round, both of which will help you attain different coloured karate belts. If you manage to collect the final black belt, you will enter the third stage of the bonus round – the Final Showdown. In this round, you’ll come face-to-face with Karate Pig’s arch-nemesis, and if you win the three-round battle, you’ll be rewarded with a cash prize of up to £1.060.
