Relax Gaming Brings ‘The Great Pigsby’ & Other Slots to US for First Time With BetMGM

European content provider and iGaming aggregator Relax Gaming has made its US real money debut by extending its partnership with BetMGM Casino to New Jersey. The online casino operator already offers titles by Relax Gaming, which will use the name RLX Gaming in the US. Relax Gaming develops in-house slots and table games but is also known as a technology provider and an iGaming aggregator with a library of over 4,000 games.

Players at BetMGM Casino in New Jersey can now play the Great Pigsby slot and soon will have access to a second title, Epic Joker. BetMGM Ontario offers over 20 Relax Gaming titles, and many of them could make it to the US in the near future.

US social casino players may already be familiar with Relax Gaming due to its Money Train series, which has become popular on play money and sweepstakes casino sites like Chumba Casino.

Relax Gaming CEO Simon Hammon called the New Jersey debut a “landmark moment” for the company. He said that it’s one of the most significant launches to date. Relax Chief Regulatory Officer Alexia Smilovic Ronde noted that New Jersey is just the beginning for the company. She added that the team “looks forward to contributing to the vibrant and evolving landscape” of iGaming in the US.

What Does Relax Gaming Offer US Players?

A common theme of the content by Relax Gaming is a respin feature. Many slots feature randomly triggered bonuses that award the player a full bonus round or just one respin, often with a unique feature like an expanding wild. Another notable Relax Gaming feature is the return to player (RTP). Several of the studio’s slots have relatively high RTP. That includes Book of 99 (99% RTP), which could compete with the Ugga Bugga slot for the loosest slot.

If Book of 99 comes to New Jersey or another state, it could become the highest payout slot available in the US, as the Ugga Bugga slot is not currently available at any legal online casino. Other notable higher-than-average RTP slots include:

  • Marching Legions: 98.12%
  • Epic Joker: 97%
  • Dragon’s Awakening: 96.96%
  • Erik the Red: 96.95%

Game in Focus: The Great Pigsby

The Great Pigsby is one of Relax Gaming's first offerings for the US market.As you might have guessed, this slot is based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby. You enter a 1920s glamorous party, where the Great Pigsby is the star.

Game Features:

  • 5×3 Grid with 243 ways to win
  • RTP: 96.55%
  • Slot volatility: Medium
  • Min/Max Bet: $0.10/$200
  • Max win: 2,000x
  • Expanding wilds
  • Free Spins

Each time you land a wild (a golden coin), it becomes an expanding wild and covers the whole reel. Additionally, the coin feeds the piggy bank on top, which could randomly trigger either 10 Free Spins or one Wild Reels Respin.

During the Free Spins bonus round, every other spin removes a low-paying symbol and replaces it with medium- or high-paying ones. This means you are playing with only medium and high symbols by the last two spins. If the piggy bank awards you a Wild Reels respin, you get one free spin with two to four reels becoming wilds.

Moreover, there’s a third respin feature called the Great Pigsby spin, and it’s triggered randomly during any base game spin. Several Great Pigsby symbols (the highest-paying symbols) are placed on the grid for one respin. If you’re lucky, all reels could be filled, awarding a big win.
