Rasputin Megaways slot review
Rasputin Megaways slot joins the ranks of Beef Lightning Megaways and Spicy Meatballs Megaways in the Big Time Gaming portfolio of slots. This Russian-themed slot is unique in many ways and bucks the trend in terms of look and style. This slot game brings the Megaways game engine, something we are very used to from BTG. The question is, will it bring anything else?
On the reels of Rasputin Megaways...
There are 6 reels of 2-10 rows each on Rasputin Megaways slot resulting in 64-1,000,000 ways here with symbols single and stacked. The top pay is the Purple Faberge Egg at 50x bet for 6-of-a-kind with 3 more Eggs at 1.5 down to 1x and six royals at 0.8 to 0.6x for each full way. Gold Egg scatters appear on all reels and winning symbols are not replaced in tumbles. The Rasputin Wild appears on the middle 4 reels and will add 1-48 positions to the grid for each one landing, randomly placed and with varying symbols and no guaranteed win. So this is how you'd get the 1 Million ways in most cases, although that would be very rare. Land 3 scatters to get a choice of free game rounds.
Rasputin Megaways free spins
Your first option is Big and Strong spins. You get 7 and these start with the number of rows present in the triggering spin. Now the reels can expand up to 12 rows high or in other words 2,985,984 ways to win as they don't reset between spins after Rasputin Wilds have added positions to them. A reel getting 12-high triggers 3 extra spins, similar to the method White Rabbit Megaways uses. The Wild can now add up to 60 positions when it lands. It's the most volatile choice as far as I can see.
Ecstasy and Fire spins is the second option and you get 10 spins here with +4 for any 3-scatter retriggers during them. Now the global multiplier increases 1x for every 5 positions added by the Rasputin Wilds, a scale of 5 boxes can be seen under the multiplier panel to track progress. So the maximum 60 positions from the Wild would give 12x immediately to your multiplier!
Our View of Rasputin Megaways...
Rasputin Megaways slot is a blend of several games like Gold Megaways and White Rabbit as mentioned, and it works well. Like the man himself, it's very volatile with a good 96.68% RTP and in some places, you can buy the bonus for a 100x bet. In all countries, you can gamble wins of between 25 and 100x on a proportionately segmented wheel to the size of the win, if over 100x you bank the excess and can swap 100x for it. The base game can throw in big wins via the Rasputin Wilds and if you like the disco beat of the Boney M track you'll be happy.
The features are fun but due to the volatility you need Rasputin Wilds to act fast in the first option and in the second option to offer up high numbers for a quick multiplier rise - remember the big pays are weighted here to the Purple Faberge Egg as it's a whole 48.5x drop to the next 6OAK down, the Red Egg at 1.5x! Like the monk himself, this game is a risky proposition so you need to hope for some good ra-ra here...Review by Gamingslots
