Pragmatic Play's Mammoth Gold Megaways slot transports players to a period when the Earth was engulfed in ice, and prehistoric creatures like woolly mammoths still inhabited the planet.
Between 2 and 7 symbols can land on each spin on the 6-reel grid, providing up to 117,649 ways to win. Additionally, there is a four-position horizontal reel above the main grid. Premium symbols such as the dodo, bear, warthog, wolf, sabre tooth tiger, and mammoth are accompanied by low-paying card suits. Landing six identical symbols from left to right on adjacent reels from the first reel onwards will award a payout of 0.5 to 0.6 times the bet for low-paying symbols, while the maximum payouts for premium symbols range from 0.75 to 5 times the bet.
Pragmatic Play’s Megaways slots feature Cascading Reels, which can benefit players by removing symbols involved in a winning combination and replacing them with new ones, potentially resulting in a new winning combination. This process repeats if another winning combination is formed. Other Megaways games from Pragmatic Play, such as Spin And Score Megaways, Extra Juicy Megaways and Chilli Heat Megaways, are also available to play at PartyCasino.
The Wild symbol in the game is represented by a rumbling volcano icon, which can substitute for all regular pay symbols to create winning combinations. However, it is restricted to appearing only on the top horizontal reel. In the Free Spins round, the Wild symbol has the potential to increase the payout in various ways, as detailed below.
On the other hand, the Scatter symbol is denoted by a crystal lump and can appear anywhere on the game grid. If three or more Scatter symbols are visible on the screen, they activate the Free Spins round.
The Wild symbol not only assists in creating line wins when it lands but also provides a random multiplier of either x2 or x3. This multiplier is applied to any wins it contributes to and is then added to the metre at the top of the grid. If additional Wilds appear during the subsequent Cascade and contribute to wins, their values are multiplied by the metre value before being applied to the total win. In the base game, the metre resets at the end of each Cascade.
Players who land 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatter symbols receive a random number of Free Spins ranging from 5-14, 6-14, 7-14, or 8-14 spins, respectively. Players who win less than 14 spins can choose to gamble for a chance to increase the number. They spin a wheel, and if it lands on green, the number of spins increases (up to 14). However, they lose all their spins if the wheel lands on red.
The Wild multiplier functions similarly to the base game during the Free Spins round, except the metre does not reset between spins. Moreover, each winning Cascade increases the multiplier by +1, which is applied to all wins, including those without a Wild. Additionally, landing 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 Scatters during this round adds 1, 2, 3, 4, or 6 spins to the remaining total.
Mammoth Gold Megaways strikes a balance with its special features and bonuses, keeping them from becoming excessive. The game's simplicity is part of its appeal, and when the Wild multiplier or Free Spins are triggered, excitement and the value in the meter increase. However, since this is a high-volatility game, it may take some time for the volcano to heat up. As a result, it's recommended to set a loss limit before playing. Best of luck!
