The internet is rife with stories of titans of industry duking it out over market share, however, when these titans choose to work together a special kind of magic is created. The Mystery Reels MegaWays slot is one of these ‘magical’ creations. Red Tiger’s latest slot release is the combination of their popular Mystery Reels slot with the fan favourite MegaWays feature from Big Time Gaming!
Gavin Hamilton, CEO at Red Tiger, had the following to say about their latest game:
“Mystery Reels MegaWays™ is a fun and immersive addition to our ever-expanding portfolio. With its old-school feel but cutting-edge mechanics and innovative features, such as the mystery symbol and the possibility to risk some Free Spins for further reward, we are sure it will appeal to players across the spectrum.”
The success of this integration could see many more such inventive agreements in Red Tigers future as they climb towards the 100 slot release milestone!
Slots Entertainment Done Right
Red Tigers Mystery Reels slot is a solid, well-crafted, fruit slot with an RTP of 96.18%. Bereft of overly flashy features and on-screen shenanigans it is everything that makes the fruit slot genre a favourite with players worldwide – clear spin outcomes, enriching features and the chance to take home a sizable jackpot!
The base game screen is an uncluttered grid of 6 reels, and up to 7 rows, with clean clear symbols on each reel. The top left of the marquee shows you the number of MegaWays which have been triggered for each spin of the reels. The other prominent displays are the header, win total and spin button – simplicity is one of this slots strengths.
The reels are filled with the fruit machines symbols we all know and love. These are the Seven and Star symbols at the high end, with the bell, horseshoe, watermelon, grape, plum, orange, lemon and cherry at the low end. The fiery Seven is the highest paying of them all at 50x your bet. It is also the only symbol that offers a return for only landing 2x matching symbols on the reels, all the others require at least 3x matching.
Activating the Free Spins mode will see the camera “pan” upwards taking you to a full-screen Wheel of Fortune inspired screen where you get to spin the wheel to grab more free games. Here the top right of the marquee will now display an ever-increasing win multiplier.
Lastly the sound design. The backing track is so subtle that at first you might think your sound is set too low, and the ambient sounds like reel spins, feature notices and menu displays are equally unobtrusive. This all adds to the feeling of playing a well-designed slot that doesn’t feel the need to overwhelm you into a false sense of “enjoying the experience”.
Stacked Free Spins and Rewarding Jackpots
Mystery Reels MegaWays is a cascading slot machine that offers winning paylines across adjacent reel placements, not fixed paylines. It is this and the fact that each spin has the potential to unlock up to 117,649 ways to win thanks to the MegaWays feature that keeps even the base game enthralling.
In addition to the enormous win potential offered by these multiple paylines and cascading reels you also have the ability to set your stake per spin from as low as €0.20 up to €10.00! Which will come in handy when triggering free spins and playing for the games maximum jackpot of 10,000x your stake – a tantalising €100,000 jackpot at max bet! Keep in mind that Mystery Reels MegaWays is high volatility and will make you work for a big payday so be sure to manage your bankroll wisely.
The titular feature of Mystery Reels MegaWays is the Mystery Symbol feature. On any given spin you can trigger several apple shaped Mystery Symbols. These symbols will randomly select a number of symbols to clone, these clones become the matching copies of a randomly selected fruit symbol. As they appear on adjacent symbols this feature can unlock Big Wins.
As always playing Free Spins on a Red Tiger casino game is an enjoyable spectacle. Landing 3x Free Spin symbols on the reels triggers the feature, which immediately awards you 8 free games and the chance to gamble for more!
Choosing to gamble will see you playing a Wheel of Fortune inspired mini-game. You bet your 8 spins on the potential to win up to 40 Free Spins. Even if you lose the game you will get to walk away with a minimum of 4 free games as this is, kindly, the lowest value on the wheel. Even if you begin the round with only 4 spins there is always the chance to trigger an additional 5 free games by landing 3x Scatters on the reels during this feature.
Free Spins also see the activation of the Win Multiplier feature. Each consecutive winning spin during this mode increases the multiplier by an additional 1x! This meter does not reset on non-winning spins meaning it has no maximum multiplier level.
