Montezuma Megaways slot by WMS was perhaps always going to be their second use of the Megaways license after the Raging Rhino Megaways. We retain the same symbols as the previous original 30-line Montezuma slot and the jungle background with gentle Aztec music playing as we spin. The game has a slightly more gentle feel than the loud and aggressive Bonanza Megaways but can we hope it's equally less dangerous to our bankroll?
We have 6 reels of up to 7 rows each on Montezuma Megaways slot with the scrolling 4 symbols above the centre 4 reels this time viewed as a segment of a wheel, modelled clearly on the original game. This means we can get 324 to 117,649 ways on the game with symbols both stacked and single. Montezuma pays 25x bet for 6-of-a-kind, the Aztec Queen 1x, Bird or Head Dress 0.5x, Mask, Snake or Ace 0.25x with the three lower card values at 0.2x. The Wild Temples only appear on the turning wheel and the familiar Wheel scatters are still present which unlike many Megaways slots can appear both on the turning wheel and base game reels. Your only modifier is the Montezuma Respin feature which may trigger after a losing spin, turning the scrolling wheel of 4 symbols which may or may not create a win.
If you see 3 or more Wheel scatters you will trigger the free games. these will have an increasing multiplier for each winning action. You spin the feature wheel to see how many free games you get which is important as there are no extra spins or retriggers here. Your enhancement, aside from the Montezuma Respin is two scatters giving you a spin of the wheel to add extra multipliers. These can be from 1 to 100x so there is potential despite the low line pays! If you get the Multiplier Wheel on the very last free spin, then all your winnings to that point will be multiplied by that factor. Like with the original Montezum you get a Feature Guarantee which is not the traditional 10x, but in this case 30x bet if you fail to accrue that much.
Montezuma Megaways slot is good on the eye and pleasant to listen to and has good animations. Alas the low pays mean you get a very high win frequency of mainly micro pays of less than 1x and after a while that grates on you, the endless slow cascade actions when all you want is a feature. The RTP is 95.82% so just under the Megaways average, the free games can be very rewarding but are hard to trigger, which makes the poor bonuses triggering the Feature Guarantee hard to stomach. WMS /Scientific Games have tried to be true to the original here, but whether you think this has worked I'll leave up to you...
