What the Fox Megaways
Red Tiger Gaming
What the Fox Megaways is a Red Tiger Gaming online slot. It uses the main Megaways setup which it combines with a fresh theme. Moreover, keep an eye on the titular fox since it could very well be your ticket to riches.
The playing field has 6 reels and it changes with each spin. Each reel can have up to 7 symbols, so the number of ways to win varies. You can go from 64 to 117,649 ways to win, so the potential is there.
The max win stands at 10,474x your stake and the game’s volatility borders on the extreme. It’s not often a slot clocks a 10’er on the Whizz’s slots scale. In this case, we don’t have to tell you that the outing can be a tough one.
The betting range starts is $0.10 to $10 per spin. To be honest we don’t like what we see in regard to the jackpot. Plus, RTG caps the max bet at $10 per spin. Furthermore, it drops the proverbial F-Bomb with its volatility. The upside though is that it offers Cascades, Willy Wilds, and Foxy Spins as bonus rounds. Let’s see how our review of this slots for real money pans out.
The RTP of What the Fox Megaways is 95.71%. That’s the default value and a half-decent one at that. Some casinos have it lower, keep that in mind.
The theme of What the Fox Megaways is crazy. You’ve got Willy the Fox moving around casinos in his limousines. We haven’t seen that before and we might not see that again either. However, there’s a strong possibility that we might see a sequel soon.
To catch a winner you need 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right. The low-paying symbols are card ranks with a hint of neon. The high-value symbols are wads of cash, whiskeys, Willy the fox, and a luxurious assortment. You can win up to 20x your bet if you land 6 Willy the Fox symbols.
What the Fox Megaways combines its Megaways system with the Cascades. The game engine immediately removes the winning combos from the grid and replaces them with new symbols. As a result, the cascades continue for as long as you keep on getting new winning combos.
Willy the Fox can show on the board as a full-reel Wild. It subs adjacent symbols and functions as a win multiplier. He can be worth up to 7x if you find 3x Willy Wilds on the grid. But, more importantly, the game engine multiplies the win multipliers which can go as high as 343x!
Find 3 Foxy Spins Scatters on the reels and you’ll unlock the Free Spins Feature. A new screen with a Bonus Wheel opens up. Here you must spin the wheel to determine how many free spins you’ll receive and the starting win multiplier. You can get as many as 20 free spins and a top win multiplier of 10x.
During free spins; you can improve the win multiplier by getting the Cascades. +1x for each Cascade to a maximum of 20x. There are no resets during free spins, which is nice. Also, each bonus Foxy Spin Scatter is worth one bonus free spin.
After our loss with Prism of Gems we played What the Fox Megaways with funny money or free credits. Our average bet per spin was $1. During our 200+ test spins, our biggest win was $35 in the base game. Winning spins are far and few in between but if you can string a few cascades together; payouts can be good. Our big win of 35x is a prime example.
We had to grind out the free spins feature and finally triggered on our 200th spin. Not only did we catch a cool 15 free spins and a 2x win multiplier, but we also won $34. Not much given that it took us a mammoth 200 spins to unlock the free spins feature.
What the Fox Megaways is a fancy Red Tiger Gaming slot. Its Megaways and Cascades can do a lot of damage. Not on their own, but when they combine with the Multiplier Wilds and Foxy Spins. At least in theory since we seldom saw them in action. When they finally popped their stay was extremely brief. Above all, the latter comes with big global win multipliers of up to 20x!
Despite all the theatrics, Red Tiger Gaming’s What the Fox Megaways is a brutal slot. If you manage a win of 50x or more drop the bat and run. Because big wins seldom pitch. Besides, we’re talking about a Red Tiger Gaming slot here with an RTP of 95.71%. We might have turned the other cheek had it been a slot from another studio. We conclude this slot review with the following; play it, but proceed with caution!
If you’re into Megaways slots with Cascades and stuff, have a look at Pragmatic Play’s, Power of Thor Megaways. The jackpot is 5,000x, it incorporates a Tumble Reel feature and free spins with progressive win multipliers.
