Extreme Megaways Online Slot Review

One thing you can always count on, besides death and taxes, is that a slot online using the Megaways mechanic is never far away from being released. We can’t blame casino software studios for using the system in online slot games on a regular basis due to the much more exciting iGaming experience it provides. Extreme Megaways is a brand-new title from Stakelogic and uses a second horizontal reel, meaning there are two horizontal reels above the six vertical reels containing up to 117,649 paylines. Expect to find a free spins feature trigger at some point in this volatile game, while the top reel also drops modifiers onto the reels at random intervals. Let’s go in and see what’s up for grabs.

Stakelogic recently released Ultra Joker as well as Candy Links Bonanza, and we must say that both presented a mixed bag. In Extreme Megaways, there’s obviously the use of the Megaways, so it means cascading reels. This sees symbols drop into the reels, and if a win happens, then 3, 4, 5 or 6 of a kind winning combinations will be removed, the existing symbols fall into the empty spaces, and new icons will tumble into the reels. This can trigger another consecutive win, and another etc. The actual presentation of Extreme Megaways isn’t something that we’d describe as a drawcard, using a space theme with valuable gemstones. It's nothing we haven't seen before. However, it does all run very smoothly whether playing on mobile, desktop or tablet devices.

Another advantage that comes with Megaways online casino games is that there’s often lower maximum bet limits but very high maximum win multipliers. Extreme Megaways has a max bet limit of only $40, while players looking to take things very slow can start at the minimum of 20c per wager and work their way up from there. Extreme Megaways is volatile, which means that wins can come thick and fast but then dry up. Volatile slots mean the wins are always more valuable than medium to low volatility titles.

Feature Symbols

Extreme Megaways Feature Symbols - partycasino-canada

There are several symbols that can fall. However, most of them fall in the bonus reel lying horizontally at the top of the screen. The usual bonus icons begin with the wild, which is a star with a W in the centre. This icon acts as any regular symbol to create 3, 4, 5 and 6 of a kind wins. Another bonus symbol in Extreme Megaways we’ll all know the function of is the scatter, which is where free spins get triggered. The remaining bonus symbols we’ll discuss in the next section.

There are, of course, just regular symbols that you can land cash wins off unless you're playing the slot in demo mode, of course. The symbols with lower-paying values consist of gemstones, with the colours being blue, green, yellow, orange, purple and red. You’ll then find cherries, BAR and a bell as the medium paying icons. The highest paying symbol in the game is the 7.

Bonuses and Jackpots

The scatter symbol, as mentioned above, is your rocket ship into the free spins feature. You’ll need to land 4, 5, or 6 scatters on the same spin in order to receive 5, 7 or 10 free spins. Usually, you’re only required to land three or more scatters, while ten free spins as the most awarded does seem a little harsh. Landing the same number of scatters re-awards the same number of spins. There’s also a 2x multiplier on all wins, which grows by 1x with each win you land in the feature.

The top reel displays symbols that award modifiers. Those modifiers are as follows:

·      Random Wilds – wilds added to the reels

·      Multiplier Wilds – two multiplier wilds added to the reels

·      Destroyer – all regular symbols removed from the reels

·      Mystery Symbols – Mystery icons drop onto the reel and reveal the same symbol

·      Dropping Wild – one reel gets stacked wilds

There’s a few bits of added value in Extreme Megaways, such as playing in Super Stake mode, which increases bet sizes but sees better chances of landing bonus symbols. You can also buy the bonus feature if you’re feeling a bit impatient. Is this one of the top online slot games of the year so far? We wouldn’t go that far, but the modifiers and multipliers mean that wins can grow quite big. Don’t float in orbit for too long because the atmosphere of Extreme Megaways is ready and waiting for entry.
