Majestic Megaways from iSoftBet has 6 reels, 2-7 rows, and 117,649 paylines. If you’re looking at the number of lines, we got it right. We’re the first to agree that it’s a prodigious sum, but we’ll get to that in a bit. Majestic Megaways real money slots have all the ingredients we look for in an online casino game. Theme wise iSoftBet captures the very essence of the wildlife on the majestic planes of Africa. The graphical art is mainly a red and gold affair, and you’ll also see the ‘Big 5’ spread out across the reel set too.
The best highest paying slot has a top jackpot of up to 20,000x your stake. And, it comes with a lot of moving parts which include Cascading Symbols, Mystery Symbols, as well as a Free Spins feature with an Unlimited Win Multiplier. What’s more, it even has a Bonus Buy option! The Buy Option (Majestic Bet) is a nice touch because if you don’t have the patience to stick around for the Free Spins feature, you can trigger it instantly. But, at a cost, of course.
You can play Majestic Megaways from €$0.20 to $€20 per spin. Let’s turn our gaze to the volatility of Majestic Megaways. It’s medium to high and iSoftBet’s second Megaways release. You won’t see many winning spins. But, when they do come along, payouts are generally good. If you’re into real money slots with this engine, you’re more than welcome to try out NextGen Gaming’s, Medusa Megaways.
The RTP of Majestic Megaways is 96.11%, which is good for a medium to high variance slots for real cash. It does get better though. When you activate the ‘Buy Feature,’ the RTP shoots up to 96.97%. Which also increases the game’s Hit Ratio to around 22%. When a combination of 3-6 symbols of the same kind pitch. The symbols are low-value cards from 9 to Ace.
The high-value symbols are the lion, elephant, buffalo, rhinos, sun (Wild), moon tile, and the diamond (scatter). The lion is the premium symbol when 6 of them appear; you’ll score a cash prize of 50x times your stake. The sun symbol pops up now again on the tracker reel. It’s the game’s only wild – when it appears, it forms winning combinations that substitute symbols adjacent to it, except the diamond scatter.
The Cascading System removes the winning symbols from the reels, and new ones drop in from the top. It’s an excellent feature because you can score successive wins on the same spin. Keep your eye on the ‘tracker’ situated just above the reels. The more winning combinations that occur, the grid eventually expands to a mammoth 117,649 win ways.
iSoftbet added another exciting feature to its Majestic Megaways slots, namely the Majestic Bet. It’s a buy option. When you activate it, 4 scatters pitch on the next spin. More importantly, it catapults you into the Free Spins with an unlimited multiplier. But, a price of 75 times your stake.
We’ve covered the low and the high-value symbols. There are other symbols such as the full moon tile, and the diamond makes their presence felt too. The diamond has a negative connotation to it in Africa because it sparked many wars, hence the term ‘conflict diamonds.’ Be that as it may. The full moon is the Mystery Symbol. It improves Majestic Megaways’ hit ratio when it transforms matching symbols in a winning combination.
The diamond is the scatter symbol, and you need 4 of them to trigger the Free Spins feature. Once you’re in the free spins, you will receive 12 free spins. Every time three scatters pop up onto the reels, you’ll get an extra five free spins. And, when four scatters show up, you’ll gain another ten free spins. What this tells us is that you can win an indefinite amount of free spins.
The diamond scatter appears in the base game, but only on the horizontal reel. Now, we’re getting into the juicier stuff which is the ‘unlimited progressive multiplier’. Every time you score a cascade win in the free spins, the multiplier increases by 1+. The beauty of it all is, and just like the free spins, there’s no limit to the size of the multipliers.
Megaways Majestic is not without its faults, yet it’s another excellent title from iSoftBet. Some real money slots critics said that iSoftbet played it ‘safe’ which we have to agree with. The game’s simple mechanics belie a deep and gratifying real money slots experience. Yet, at the heart of it all, iSoftBet not only played it safe but smart as well. If you’re chasing the maximum payout of 20,000x your stake, then you’ll have to unlock the Free Spins. It’s an excellent feature because you can re-trigger it for an unlimited number of times, and it comes with a progressive multiplier. Furthermore, let’s not forget about the Buy Option, although it’s a tad costly to our liking. If you have the bankroll, it allows you to hop straight into the bonus round.
