Another release on the conveyor belt of MegaWays video slots is LeoVegas MegaWays. As you’ve no doubt guessed, it branded by the casino and available exclusively at the site. It’s a pretty standard offering that comes with a 6 reel, symbol drop game engine where the number of MegaWays can reach up to 117,649. Look out too for mystery transforming symbols and a free spins round with multipliers. Play on all devices from between 20p and £10 per spin.
There’s a flashy look to LeoVegas MegaWays. The reels are set within a giant fruit machine and the backing is full of imagery you might see in a brick and mortar casino. Joining the lower value royal values on the reels is a quartet of higher paying gemstone symbols. The best of these is the diamond which pays 50 times your bet if you land 6 on adjoining reels.
The W is the wild. This can appear in the top row above the middle 4 reels above the main set. This replaces everything apart from the mystery paw print and the scatter. The Cascading Reels feature sees winning combinations removed from play with new symbols appearing from above to replace them. These drops continue until they fall with no winner on view.
The number of symbols on each reel varies from between 2 and 7 on each spin. This alters the amount of MegaWays in play. At their maximum they can offer 117,649 ways to win. There are a few extras to note here. Firstly there’s a Mystery Symbols feature – all paw prints that land on the same spin transform into the same matching symbol. A payout calculation the follows with the matching symbols in position.
Then you have the Free Spins feature – this round is triggered by landing 4 or more coin scatters on the same spin. You’ll then spin the wheel. This determines how many free spins are on offer and what the starting multiplier is.
- Up to 15 free spins if you trigger with 4 scatters
- Up to 20 free spins if you trigger with 5 scatters
- Up to 25 free spins if you trigger with 6 scatters
- Up to 30 free spins if you trigger with 7 scatters
You’ll start with a multiplier of between 1x and 10x. That figure increases with each symbol drop win during the free spins. You can add 5 or 10 extra free spins to your total if you manage to land 3 or 4 scatters on the same free spin (with unlimited free spins on offer).
If you don’t like waiting for features. you’ll have the chance to pay and trigger the Free Spins feature. There are 2 possibilities here:
- Bonus Bet feature – for 100 times your bet you’ll get a spin of the full bonus wheel complete with multipliers.
- MegaWays Wheel Bet feature – for 20 times your bet, you can spin for up to 10 free spins with a minimum number of MegaWays in play on each of them.
This is a pretty vanilla take on the MegaWays video slot. We’ve seen similar collections of features in many other games. It’s all solid enough, just a little unspectacular. Variance wise it’s high with potential payouts of 50,000 times your bet on every spin.
LeoVegas Casino will be hoping to tap into an audience that hasn’t sampled this game mechanic before. If you enjoy this game engine, by all means dive in. If it’s not normally a style you like, the potential 50,000 times bet payouts per spin should be appealing enough.
