Angry Birds Epic Video Guide | What is the Golden Pig Machine & Rainbow Bar?

The Golden Pig Machine and Rainbow Bar are important aspects of Angry Birds Epic. But what the heck are they and how are they used? Well, in this video guide we explain both in detail.

In essence, the Golden Pig machine is used to craft new items without actually crafting them. Each time you roll the Golden Pig machine your Rainbow Bar is filled ever so slightly. Once the Rainbow Bar is full the next time you roll you are guaranteed a legendary set item (read more about set items here). You can also roll your friends’ Golden Pig Machine one time per day. They can also roll yours, which fills your rainbow bar (when you roll their Golden Pig machine only their Rainbow Bar is filled).

Rovio also introduced a way to earn a free roll by watching a video. Note, when you click play on the video make sure you watch it in it’s entirety or you won’t earn your free roll.

The video above contains quite a bit more info, so I definitely recommend watching it when you have time.

If we get Elite and Master class, our items will be more powerful? or it has nothing to do with it?

@joeyba, mastering your classes always increase bird’s health and attack. You should have Elite classes for the most (if not all) of your birds. If you want to spend some money in game you should get Master classes for your favorite birds which depends on strategy you choose.

@joeyba Your stats multipliers increase not the base stats of your items/equipment, but the net effect is that your birds are more powerful when wearing any of those upgraded classes.

Just to add that it tooks 100 lucky coins worth rolls to fully fill rainbow.

Hmm. So the idea of “having a lot of friends to fill up the rainbow bar more quickly” doesn’t seem to be the case – at least for me. It seems that no matter how many friends you have, you only get one “friend” roll per day.

In other words, I have several friends. Two days ago I got one free roll (from McCool), none from my friends. Yesterday, I got one roll from my friend Jon, none of my other friends or McCool.

That seems counter-intuitive. I get the same amount of rainbow each day, (one roll), but only one of my friends will receive a bonus roll for me. That means the more friends my friends have, the less likely I’ll be to get a bonus from them spinning my wheel. It encourages me to want my friends to only be my friend. That doesn’t seem like good game mechanics.

You can roll 1 friend’s Golden Pig machine per day. But your friends can do the same, and you get credit if they roll yours.

I have tried to use the watch a video function on the good pig. I allow the vide to run until it takes me to the download link. I think click off the function only to be informed my a message “you didn’t watch the full video” so even though I watch the video I get no benefit. I’m playing on iPhone 5c with the latest iOS.

If your X’ing out of the video, that sounds like a perfectly legitimate consequence.

The same happens to me also.

I have had the same problem occasionally. Even though the time stamp marks the video as no seconds remaining and nothing on the screen is changing, I still didn’t get credit. However, I only notice it on certain videos; those that do not offer you the chance to download something always just disappear and then grant the free roll. If you try to download, then Epic quits and you lose the offer. Since PJng isn’t having a problem, maybe it’s an iOS thing? At least not all of the videos seem to be bugged… I’d keep watching them; you should get a roll eventually.

That video was very educational and informative. Will mark this page when for future reference when I get back into epic. Spent some coins on the rainbow bar but the item did not seem to produce increased results.

I think from the Golden Pig Machine, you don’t receive unique items or weapons – apart from the set items of course. All the other items are the same as from the blueprints. At least they have the same icon, but only a different name.

So a complete list with all items and weapons would be possible cos the number of blueprints is limited.

@chriss I agree on that. But I know amslimfordy said that it could be nearly impossible to make a list with all weapons and shields, since we also need to find out the names of the weapons and shields from the golden pig. The only thing maybe we can do is gather the names together, as a matter of fact I’m collecting the ones from the golden pig too, althought I know it is weaker.

I have to correct myself. I have about 30 weapons and off-hand items from the Golden Pig Machine and all of them have an equivalent from a blueprint. But yesterday for the first time I received an item (an AB T-Shirt) from the Golden Pig Machine for which there is no equivalent from a blueprint.

Avatar of RovioMasterRank: Explosive with 2305 points
By RovioMaster (@chiiyuen0109)

@chriss By 30 do you mean the total number of weapons of all birds?

Can you post a picture of the AB T-Shirt? I never heard of it before.

Rank: Master Slinger with 5955 points
By Chris (@chriss)

By 30 I mean, as I said, that I have about 30 items and weapons from the GPM. But of course not for only one bird.

The AB T-Shirt seems to be a unique item only abailable at the GPM. It is an off-hand item for Red and it’s called “Sassy Banner”.

The Golden Pig Machine does really help me when I’m stuck on a level. I just play the Golden Clouds level every day, and use the Lucky Coins from it to get better equipment. I still have that Water Bomb…

Glad to hear that. I thought the Water Bomb blueprint was bought using Snoutlings? Or did you mean you get it using The Golden Pig Machine from your nest?

The golden pig machine is disabled in the game here, version 1.0.10 also other versions not available. i recomment not to update to 1.0.10, it has more bugs…

I don’t always get a free role video for my GPM. Are you not given one free role on your own machine every day as well as a free role on your friends machine?

Rank: Sling God with 27485 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

@candimm The frequency of the “Watch a Video” roll changes around. Sometimes it’s about 24h, sometimes more toward 48h.

@BirdLeader @AMSlimfordy — I’ve just gotten a few facebook friends who play epic, so I’m totally new to the friends aspect. A couple of questions:
1) How do you get the free roll from a friend on their golden pig machine? Do you automatically get one every 24 hours? If not, what do you do?
2) If someone asks you for friendship essence, do you get a message with a gift box to check? How many friendship essences can you get per day?

Rank: Sling God with 27485 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

@mvnla2

1) About once per 24 hours, yes. If you go to your Nest, you should see a logo on the Totem Pole indicating there’s a free roll available.
2) If someone sends you a request, you are prompted to click a checkmark in your inbox to send it to them.
If they respond to a request you sent, you click on the giftbox to receive the gift.
As far a I know, as many as people accept. You can only request once per 12 hours or so, but if everyone responds…

This happens if you are running v1.0.11 and your friend is running v1.0.12 of the app.
