Free Megaways Respin slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Megaways Respin slot from Relax Gaming is like Joker Megaways slot a product of a smaller in-house developer, Games Inc. The game looks and sounds pretty dire, with a Vegas style night time street background, corny music and retro sounds to compound the simplistic symbols on the reels. There have been other mediocre Megaways games in the past like Flower Fortunes Megaways and the pretty dreadful Deal or no Deal Megaways slot, but this is the first I've seen that depresses as soon as you open it. So what price these re-spins for our bankroll, because this game already looks expensive and I'll tell you why.
Megaways Respin slot is the first Megaways to offer the facility to re-spin any reel you choose, for the price displayed. We've seen numerous games in the past with this like Book of Oz Respins slot and several other mainly Microgaming ones. You get say 2 scatters in view and then choose to re-spin a 'dead' reel to try and land the third and the cost for doing so is exorbitant, say 20 or 30x stake with no guarantee it will come quickly thus when you have landed it, the feature will not realistically pay anywhere near the cost of triggering it back. Of course it doesn't have to be scatters, you may want a stack of a certain symbol on one of the first 3 reels to produce a big win - but the cost of the re-spin is proportionate to the potential win so the price can be ridiculous.
On The Reels...
There are 6 reels of 2-7 rows each meaning 64-117,649 ways per spin as there's no scrolling row of 4 icons above. Symbols are stacked and single with single Wilds possible on all reels bar the first and gold bonus scatters on all 6 if you don't want to pay 100x bet to buy the feature if you live outside of the UK. No random modifiers and winning symbols aren't replaced with fresh tiles from above either. Your best 6-of-a-kind is the Diamond at 50x bet, Red Gem 7.5x, Green or Blue Gem 2x with six card values paying 1.75 down to 0.8x so the pays are the same as on Bonanza slot.
You need 4 Gold scatters for 15 free games, 5 gets you 20 and all 6 gets you 25. You need only 3 in the bonus for 5 extra spins, 4 for 10 and 5 or 6 gets you the same as the actual triggers for those amounts. You don't get a fixed increasing multiplier for each win, but a stupid little robot 3-reel slot sits off the right of the grid and spins during every free spin. It can display multipliers as well as blanks and these multipliers are collected and accumulate as your bonus progresses. You'll find you get a few early on and then once at 6 or 7x they seem to thin out and when they do land on the robot, are usually just the 1x variety instead of the higher values you see early on. Whoopee.
Megaways Respins slot is absolutely shocking, one of, or if not the worst ever Megaways game. The best thing is the 96.46% RTP because there's damn-all else to play it for. It looks poor, sounds dreadful and irritates from the moment you open it up. The bonus mechanic must've been designed by somebody suffering from a serious ailment at the time which necessitated a strong prescription from their GP. This is the equivalent of alcohol-free lager for this slot type, the fun-free Megaways. Yes, you could get lucky and win over 1000x in the feature but let me tell you, you'll never, ever play it long enough to get that far...
