Majestic Megaways slot review
Majestic Megaways slot by iSoftBet is their second usage of this BTG-licensed Megaways mechanic after Aztec Gold Megaways. We have the African Wildlife theme here as with Raging Rhino Megaways and I'd say the most similar one in appearance is Blueprint's Safari Gold Megaways which like this slot, focuses on the mighty lion. Predictably we get some tribal music playing, a background of the African plains at sunset intermingled with roars or calls from the animals featured. So will this latest Megaways have a majestic effect on our bankroll?
On The Reels...
We have 324-117,649 ways to win here with the most common Megaways format of random reel rows between 2 and 7 tiles and the scrolling row of 4 single symbols above the centre 4 of the 6 reels. You scatters are Diamonds and Wilds surprisingly feature a lone tree in a sunset background - now where have we seen that before? Those Wilds can only appear on the top scrolling row of Majestic Megaways slot and the 6-of-a-kind pays are 50x stake Lion, 7.5x Elephant, 2x Rhino or Wildebeest with 6 card values paying 1.75 down to 0.8x for a full way. You may sometimes see Moons drop in on the reels and these are random Mystery Symbols which all reveal the same tile. The symbols appear stacked and all winning tiles are removed and replaced from above during each play.
You need 4 or more Diamonds for 12 free spins any scatter over the 4 will add 5 extra spins. In the bonus these can only appear on the top scroll like the Wilds and 3 will award 5 extra spins and 4 gives 10. You get an increasing multiplier for every winning action during the spins with no limit. The Mystery Symbols tend to appear more often in the free games but these is no guarantee they'll produce a win, in fact they mostly don't! There is of course huge potential here but the bonus is volatile and often disappoints.
Well it appears iSoftBet have stuck to the tried and tested Megaways formula here which in itself isn't necessarily bad but simply means the game has nothing new to offer the player. You have a 96.00% RTP which is sound enough and it appears the reels offer different stacks of the top 50x Lion symbol than say Bonanza does with the Diamonds so the configuration is different which may lead to higher volatility and bigger potential. The game is pleasant enough to play and doesn't grate on you but majestic doesn't quite cut it here...Review by Gamingslots
