Pile ‘Em Up Slot by Snowborn Games
The latest venture by Snowborn Games and Microgaming looks for inspiration from video games. However, they do not go for modern-era video games. Instead, Pile ‘Em Up draws inspiration from retro games from the ’80s. The slot is played on a five-reel, twenty-payline grid. Symbol designs include precious gems, fruits, diamond hearts, flowers, and boxes.
The game piles on several extra features that players can enjoy. Coins appear on the grid with random values, which we can collect with a special Collect icon. The Coin Booster’s multiplier applies to the collectable coins and increases when you pick up a 1UP symbol. The Heart Bonus grants three bonus spins during which you try to collect as many coins as possible. Finally, we can trigger free spins. The game’s top prize is 7,500x.

Coin Rewards and Collection
Coins can appear on reels one, two, three, and four. Each appears with a value ranging from 0.2x to 50x your total bet. We need to land a Collect symbol on reel five to collect the prize from each coin. The Collect icon grants the reward for all visible coin symbols.
The Coin Booster is active during normal gameplay, free spins, and the Heart Bonus. Each 1UP icon on the playing field increases the Coin Booster multiplier by one. The multiplier’s maximum value is 10x.
The Coin Booster applies its multiplier when a Collect icon appears on reel five or at the end of the Heart Bonus. The multiplier applies to all coin symbols on the reels. After boosting payouts, the Coin Booster multiplier resets back to one.
Land three flower Scatters on reels one, three, and five to win nine free spins. While the feature is active, two or three Scatters on the grid grant three or nine free spins. Additionally, the game carries over the Coin Booster multiplier.
The game collects all coins that appear during free spins. When the feature ends, it plays a re-spin. Players win the total value collected during free spins if a collect icon appears on the fifth reel.
Land the Heart Bonus symbol in all five reels to activate this feature. You can collect the icon over several spins. Once all five reels have a glowing purple heart on them, the feature starts.
Players get three bonus spins. Each coin or 1UP symbol that lands reset the number of bonus spins back to three. These coins remain in place until the Heart Bonus completes. The bonus ends when all positions get covered in coins or the player runs out of bonus spins. If the bonus ends with a grid full of coins, it will swap all coin values to the 50x maximum! The Coin Booster multiplier gets applied to the total win.
