Beef Lightning Megaways slot review
Beef Lightning Megaways slot by Big Time Gaming actually brings the player a very new type of bonus round on a weirdly catchy game. An Australian looking pasture makes the background here and we get jaunty country style music to listen too and some daft cow noises as certain wins appear. The base game is a little like the old Dragon Born Megaways in construct, but we retain the familiar BTG card values appearance from other Megaways such as Bonanza slot and the more recent King of Cats Megaways slot. So can we see some beefy wins here at Mount Cashmore Dairy Farm or will our bankroll get be well and truly milked?
On the reels...
There is no scroll of 4 symbols above the centre 4 reels on Beef Lightning Megaways slot so with 2-7 rows per reel that means 64-117649 ways per spin. You pay 20 coins per play and the Purple Bull is the top 6-of-a-kind at 20x stake, followed by Red Cow at 2.5x, Cow Bell or Horseshoe at 1x with six card values paying 0.8 down to 0.4x for a full way. Wilds in the form of livestock brands can appear on reels 2-5 and can expand to fill the whole column on a maximum of 3 reels. That leaves the final symbols, a Gold scatter which can appear on all reels.
Auction Free Spins
If you land 3 Gold scatters they will spell out M-O-O with +4 for any over the 3. They will then trigger and interesting bonus which is 12 spins for the basic 3 scatters. Your scatter is now a Gold Lightning symbol and we get some fun extras here on top of the normal wins! You get no increasing multiplier but those scatters will contribute to a couple of enhancements. On the left you will see two additions:
Cow Awards - these are bronze rosette, silver medal or gold trophy. When the Lightning scatters land they may reveal any on of those symbols. Collect 3 bronze for a fixed prize of 500x stake, 4 silvers for 2,500x and if you're lucky 5 gold trophies for 25,000x bet!
Auction Sale - you want to get a good price for your prized dairy cow(s) and the scatters can help here too. You begin with 1 cow and can add more when they are revealed by the Lightning symbols. You may also reveal Hammers and these will add to the multiplier displayed by the cow. At the end of the spins, you will be awarded a sale price based on the amount of cows and multiplier i.e. 5 cows at x9 so a 45x bonus.
You may also see extra spins revealed by the scatters and a 10-spin retrigger arises if you land 3 in one spin. We are told that in testing over 56,000x bet was recorded here.
Beef Lightning Megaways slot had a good 96.43% RTP and I must say is quite a volatile game. It's not tiring to play as somehow, like with previous slots, BTG have made awful music and corny sounds curiously catchy for the player. You can win up to around 25,000x in the base game apparently by landing 3 expanding Wilds and good symbols around them but the bonus is where your main attention will end up. It can take a while to trigger but as well as some nice Wild wins, you will find most times extra spins will occur to extend the enjoyment although you will endure the fixed prize teases by generally just falling short of landing any of them. That said, you will get some kind of auction prize for your growing dairy herd and this can be quite big if extra spins keep adding multipliers and cows. I say you'll find a trip to Mount Cashmore Dairy Farm enjoyable...Review by Gamingslots
