The name’s Megaways…. Max Megaways. So the voiceover proclaims in this excellent offering from top online slots developers, Big Time Gaming. Boasting a definite James Bond vibe, which carries over into the lively soundtrack, the game takes place in what looks to be the secret coastal lair of an supervillain. The secret agents of the movies almost always have a few tricks up their sleeves, and so too does this game, with Big Time Gaming delivering a slot fully loaded with features. Containing an array of modifiers in both the base game and the Free Spins Bonus, as well as a max win payout of 139,200x your stake, this is one slot game that is truly licensed to thrill!

Another top-class Megaways release from Big Time Gaming. Combining an excellent RTP with huge win potential, Max Megaways offers great value to the player and consistent excitement throughout. Courtesy of those four random modifiers, the base game never comes close to feeling stale. The Free Spins Bonus is also excellent, with the modifier pick feature adding greatly to the sense of anticipation. Small complaints would be in regard to the restricted betting range and the game symbols, which could have been more thematic. That is however nit-picking about a game, which is pretty hard to fault overall.

How To Play Max Megaways Slot

The game takes place on a familiar six-reel Megaways grid, with an additional horizontal reel positioned above reels two to five.

With a maximum number of seven symbols per reel, up to a huge 117,649 winning ways may be available on any given spin.

Wins are triggered by landing matching symbols on adjacent reels, beginning on the leftmost reel.

Standard playing card values, 9-A, provide the low-paying symbols, with Green, Blue, Red, and Purple Gemstones serving as the high-paying icons – awarding 0.6x-5x for six-in-a-row.

Reaction Wins

Megaways games and Reaction Wins regularly go hand-in-hand, and that is the case once again here.

Following any winning spin, all symbols involved in the win will explode and be replaced by new symbols.

This process repeats for every winning combination – creating the possibility of exciting chain reaction wins!

Wild Symbols

Laser beam Wild symbols will only appear on the top horizontal reel, substituting in for all standard symbols to create winning ways.

It is, however, possible to land additional Wild symbols via the base game modifiers - there are four of these.

Base Game Modifiers

During the base game, one of the following four modifiers may randomly appear, either following a standard spin or a reaction win:

  • Maximum Megaways - all six reels will feature seven symbols, creating the maximum number of 117,649 winning ways
  • Vertical Wild - all symbols on a selected reel will turn Wild
  • Horizontal Wild - all symbols on the top horizontal reel will turn Wild
  • Wild Bomb - explodes all symbols other than Scatters and the Wilds to trigger the reaction effect

Max Megaways Slot Features

Max Megaways offers much more than just lots of paylines, with an exciting Free Spins Bonus complemented by plenty of Bonus Round Modifiers.

Free Spins Bonus

The game features two types of Scatter symbols; a Gold Scatter that may appear on reels 1-5, and a Diamond Megascatter that can only land on reel 6.

Hitting three or more Scatters of any type will take you into the Free Spins Bonus and award you a minimum of 10 free spins. Each additional Scatter symbol you land will award two extra free spins.

The action switches to the villain’s lair for the bonus round, complete with flashing red lights and a map.

The reels are essentially the same as in the base game but benefit from a winnings-enhancing unlimited progressive multiplier.

Beginning at x1, this multiplier value will increase by x1 with each reaction win during the round.

During the Free Spins Bonus, Scatter symbols will appear only on the top horizontal reel - landing this can award additional free spins:

  • 3x Scatter symbols = four additional free spins
  • 4x Scatter symbols = eight additional free spins

Bonus Round Modifiers

Before the bonus, you will be taken to a screen featuring five doors, with a mystery modifier lying behind each door. You must then select doors to collect your modifiers for the bonus.

If only Gold Scatters triggered the round, you will receive two picks, but if a Diamond Scatter landed on reel 6, you will receive three picks.

The five Bonus Round Modifiers available are:

  • Double Multiplier - each reaction win will now increase the progressive multiplier by x2
  • Duplicating Wilds - whenever a Wild symbol appears, the symbols below it and on the same reel will also turn wild
  • 2x Scatter Re-Trigger - only two Scatter symbols will be needed to spark the re-triggering effect
  • Increased Ways - all reels will show a minimum of five symbols on every spin
  • No Lower Symbols - all 9, 10 and J symbols are removed from the reels for your bonus round

Max Megaways Slot RTP & Volatility

Credit to Big Time Gaming for producing a slot with a return to player percentage of 96.37%. That’s a healthy amount above the industry average of 96% and, as a fixed RTP, will be the same across all game providers.

Max Megaways falls into the high volatility category of slot games. As such, you should expect more of a rollercoaster ride than in a low or medium volatility release.
