Once again RTG has come up with something different. This time round the software developer released Megasaur a dinosaur-themed progressive slots. It features 5 reels and 20 paylines. To sweeten the pot it added a wild symbol (Megasaur), multiplier, scatter and a bonus round. The game is suitable to all mobile device be it Androids, iPhones, iPads or tablets.
The slots is loosely based on Microgaming’s Jurassic Park. If you don’t know what a Megasaur is it’s the distant cousin of T-Rex. As the name ”mega” implies it’s an apt name for a progressive jackpot slots. If you’re looking for a graphically rich game you’ll be disappointed since it does not offer much in this department. However, the thrill and excitement lies in the progressive jackpot payout of up to $1 million. Symbols that appear across the reels are the Red and Green Megasaur (wild substitutions), additional dinosaurs, volcano (scatter) and cards from 10 to Ace.
Before you play select the coin denomination first. This is the amount you wish to wager per spin. There are three betting options: $1.25 ($0.05 per line), $2.50 ($0.10 per line) or $5 ($0.20 per line). Although it’s a progressive game the coin betting limit is quite low. That said, the maximum bet per line is $5. Come to think of it it’s really not bad since you get a shot at winning a million bucks with it.
Wild symbol: When a green Megasaur appears on the second reel, it replaces all the other symbols except the Red Megasaur and Volcano (scatter) symbol. When the red Megasaur appears on the fourth reel, it substitutes the other symbols except the volcano and green Megasaur. In terms of payouts, the red Megasaur is more lucrative because it doubles all wins if they appear in a winning combination.
Free spins: When three or more volcanoes (scatter) appear any place on the reels the free spins bonus round is triggered. In order to reveal the amount of free spins (2, 5, or 10) you’ll receive, click on each volcano. Now this is where it becomes interesting. The maximum free spins you can receive is 50 if you manage 5 volcano symbols since each symbol awards 10 free spins. Either way you’re guaranteed six free spins.
Feature Guarantee: Since it’s a progressive jackpots slots it can be very tight, but RTG has an ace up its sleeve. If you failed to trigger the free spins bonus round after 250 free spins, the bonus round will be triggered automatically.
Win Win Feature: If you didn’t manage any wins in the free spins game this feature more than makes up for this. You’ll receive an amazing 250 times your initial bet. If you wager 2 to 5 times your bet your account will be credited with up to 300 times your bet. If lady luck still hasn’t smiled on you yet don’t worry RTG will. During the free spins if you failed to win 2x your bet, Megasaur RTG progressive slots awards you as much as 5 and 250 times your stake.
You’ll receive 20 percent of the jackpot’s total at a bet of $2.50 per spin when you land 4 scatters (volcanoes). If you wager $1.25 per spin and you hit 3 scatters, 10% of the current jackpot will be paid out.
Forget about the exquisite game graphics and animations we’ve become so accustomed to in the NetEnt and Betsoft games. Megasaur does away with all this and gets down to business immediately. With a max. bet of $5 you can win just under a million dollars. In my books this is really not a bad deal. Since it’s a progressive game expect loads of dry spins in between wins.
