Extra Juicy Megaways
Extra Juicy Megaways slot from Pragmatic Play combines a 6×7 reel grid of up to 117,649 ways to win.
The game’s Tumble Reel mechanic removes the winning symbols from the grid. As such, it’s possible to catch successive wins on your original spin.
For bonus rounds. Play pivots around the Semi-Sticky Multiplier scatters in the Free Spins. If you’re lucky, you can win the jackpot of 5,000x your stake.
Remember, the volatility of extra Juicy Megaways clocks a 10’er on the Whizz’s slots scale. Therefore, keep an eye on that bankroll of yours!
It’s no secret that Extra Juicy Megaways is a slot with a fruity theme. Moreover, Pragmatic Play injects it with the win-from-any-reel pay system.
The average return to player percentage of Extra Juicy Megaways is 96.42%.
We can’t fault the RTP because is way above that of the industry’s standard. Pragmatic Play unfortunately did not include the hit frequency.
As the title of the online slot implies it’s all about fruit. The symbols on the reels are oranges, blueberries, kiwi fruit, cherries, watermelons, and lemons.
The remainder of the symbols are bells, diamonds, red 7’s and grapes. The diamonds serve as the game’s multipliers.
The fruit symbols offer payouts from 0.6x up to 6x the stake for 6.
You can flick on the Ante Bet feature as you see fit. Keep in mind, if you play with it, it will cost you an extra 25% per spin.
Moreover, the Ante Bet feature doubles your odds of triggering a bonus round.
It’s difficult to talk about the Megaways engine without mentioning the Cascades. The Tumble Win mechanic is a tad different than the usual one.
Instead of just removing the winning symbols. The Tumble Win engine removes all the symbols that were part of the win from the grid.
Not only does it drop a new bunch of symbols onto the grid. But, the Tumble Win mechanic offers you repeat wins.
To get into the Free Spins feature you need 4, 5, or 6 scatters. The number of free spins you’ll receive ranges from 12, 16 or 20 free spins.
Extra free spins are up for grabs as well. Now, there’s also an option where you can gamble your free spins for extra free spins.
The Pre-Bonus Wheel of Fortune enables you to gamble your free spins. Basically, you can gain more but you can also lose all your free spins.
It goes without saying that we’re not fans of this option. One bird in the hand is way better than two in the bush.
For the duration of the free spins. The diamond scatters act as multipliers with random values from 3x to 15x.
This is quite an interesting one so pay attention. The diamonds are semi-sticky multipliers that lock onto the reels of each Tumble sequence.
Moreover, their values combine for the duration of the cascades.
If you’re not from the UK, you can use the feature buy option to purchase free spins. But, this little luxury costs 100x the stake.
Keep in mind you cannot use the Buy Option if you play with the Ante Bet. You must switch off the feature first.
The Buy Option guarantees you 4 scatters on your next spin.
We didn’t muck about when we played Extra Juicy Megaways slot. We dabbled a bit with the Ante Bet option, it didn’t do wonders for us.
The base game aside from the Tumble Reel feature is bare bones. Seriously, Pragmatic Play could have done better here.
The most Cascades we caught on a single spin were three. Our next reel stop was the Buy Option. It’s expensive to boot even at the lowest bet levels.
Surprise, surprise, no luck! Despite landing 12 free spins we won 25x our stake.
To get a comprehensive picture as to what’s going on. There are a few options at your disposal.
Play the slot with free credits online. Or, you can play it at the cheapest bet of $0.20 for at least 50 spins.
A bonus is out of the question because the volatility will slay you on the WR.
Initially, we were quite excited with Pragmatic Play’s, Juicy Gems Megaways. Despite the Tumble Reel mechanic, don’t expect any handouts in the base game.
Play here is as dry as last year’s water spatter in the Atacama desert. However, we totally dig the Dynamic Reels experience. Unfortunately, it didn’t really come to fruition.
In theory, it combines all the symbols by removing them from the reels. Supposedly this makes for the big wins, not so.
Onto the free spins feature. We’re not going to blitz Pragmatic Play here because it has huge potential. At least in the region of 5,000x.
The diamond scatters become semi-sticky and their respective multiplier values combine. Let’s not forget those Cascades jump in too from time to time.
Primal Megaways might be a golden oldie. Yet, it’s one of the best Megaways slots of all time. It has a free spins feature with multipliers that combine.
And, of course that all-important jackpot of 50,000x you can win in the free spins.
