Few beasts have the majesty and elegance of the lion. The undisputed king of the animal world, this ferocious predator knows its place at the top of the hierarchy, yet keeps its power under wraps until it’s absolutely necessary. In some ways, that’s a good analogy with Majestic Megaways, the lion-inspired jackpot thriller from the developers at iSoftBet. During the main reel action, the lion is an ever-present feature – but it’s during the bonus features this beast truly comes into its own.
As the title suggests, this is a Megaways Slots game, which means there are a few interesting functions here you won’t find on your typical slots game. From the huge number of win ways on every spin, through to the cascading spins, staggered reel heights and bonus features, the Megaways version of this slot has a great deal to offer those looking for a new slots challenge.
The game is set up across six reels, which is common for Megaways slots. These run from left to right as you look across the reel set, with an additional horizontal reel spanning reels 2-5 at the top of the screen. Each reel spins independently to reveal a fresh lineup of symbols on every spin. The aim of the game is to match combinations of the same symbol in adjacent reel positions, with a possible 117,649 ways to win on every spin.
The symbols are mainly themed around wild African animals, so you can expect to see the likes of rhinos, elephants and other beasts adorning the screen. Look out for the lion as well, the highest value symbol on the board. All the animal symbols pay out at enhanced rates for combinations of three or more of a kind.
They sit on the board alongside high card symbols, which range from 9-A. These are the lower value positions on the paytable, paying out at the lowest rates for combinations – however, because there are more of these symbols in place, you’re likely to find these combinations creeping up a lot more frequently.
Betting begins at £0.20 per spin, ranging right the way up to £20.00 per spin for those playing at max bets. With a jackpot that stands at up to 50x, this can quickly add up into some serious moolah.
The RTP ranges between 96.11% – 96.97% – in other words, from high to very high.
The wild symbol in Majestic Megaways only ever appears on the horizontal reel. This sounds at first like it would be more limiting than in other slots, but that’s not the case – it’s still an incredibly useful symbol every time it appears, giving you the chance to complete combinations you would otherwise miss from your game. The wild substitutes for all symbols except the scatter.
The scatter symbol here is the diamond symbol, which opens up the bonus round when you land them in sufficient numbers on the board. You need to land four of these symbols on the reels to start the bonus round, which begins with an allocation of up to 12 free spins.
Bonuses & Jackpots
The bonus round starts with 12 free spins, with extra spins available for landing more of the scatter symbols. Every additional scatter adds 5 free spins to the balance, up to a maximum of 27 free spins, during which time you have a clear run at building your bankroll. Factoring in the cascading reels in play after every win, and this gives you a clear pathway towards delivering some huge wins for your game.
Every win here also adds to a multiplier, which is applied to your winnings to give a total prize. It starts at 1x then increases one by one with every win posted, leading you towards progressively bigger wins as the round plays on.
There’s also the Majestic Bet feature, where available, which allows players to buy into the free spins feature for 75x their stake.
