Montezuma Megaways Review
Montezuma Megaways is another game based on a previous hit, released in this case by WMS. The megaways mechanism is extremely popular and it has already been shown that this can be combined well with classics. This game proves once again that this is completely true, and below you can read why it is such a success story!
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game is 95.92%. This means that the casino returns this percentage of all bets back to the players. The volatility or variance is high. A high volatility means that you win less frequently, but large amounts.
The playing field of this megways variant naturally has 6 reels and in this case a maximum of 7 rows per reel. At the top is a kind of wheel placed of which you will only see the top 4 boxes, and these count for the combinations. To the right of that you will see the title of the game and the number of megaways you can get that turn. Right below you can adjust your bet, use the autoplay function, and find the ‘spin’ button. On the left you will find the ‘Buy a Bonus’ feature and at the bottom you see the balance, your win, your bet etc.
How does Montezuma Megaways work?
There are a whopping 117,649 possible ways to win, as there can be up to 7 rows per reel (7x7x7x7x7x7x7). You press spin and you hope for profitable combinations or the bonus round. With the right symbols and quantity you can grab big prizes, even in the basic game. Winning combinations are replaced by falling symbols, and the wheel spins a bit if a symbol takes part. This gives you a chance of new combinations in the same turn, after you have formed one.
How do you play Montezuma Megaways?
Furthermore, the game works fairly simple. First you determine which bet suits you best. You can choose from 11 values that lie between 0.20 euros and 20 euros. In addition, you can choose to use the autoplay function or to click ‘spin’ every turn. After this, hoping for great prizes and reaching the bonus round! The game has some nice features, but they will receive more attention later in this review.
The Symbols / The Prices
The wild symbol (the temple) can, as usual, replace all other symbols except the scatter. In addition, there are a number of premium symbols consisting of the aztec warrior, the priestess, an outfit, a dagger, a snake and a mask. These generally pay the most, and with a 6 of a kind you get between 0.25x and 25x your bet! There are also 4 basic symbols (J, Q, K, A) and these pay between 0.2x and 0.25x your bet with a 6 of a kind. Ultimately, with any symbol it is possible to win large amounts, as there are so many megaways and multipliers.
Spin at least 3 scatter symbols to unlock the bonus round. Then you can spin the big wheel and see how many free spins you win. Of course you get more free spins if you have spun more scatters! The multipier principle works as we know it, and for every winning combination you get +1! You can also scatter symbols and spin during the bonus game, and thus have a chance at even higher multipliers! This allows you to spin the small wheel, and you have a chance of a multiplier up to 100x! The last round has a nice twist: Do you turn 2 scatters during this turn? Then you can spin the wheel again, and you have a chance of multiplying your entire win amount so far!
Buy a bonus feature
This feature costs you 85x the amount you bet with this game. You then play the bonus round as if you were just playing with your normal bet, so the prizes have been adjusted accordingly. It is a quick way to get into the bonus round and to win great prizes. Keep in mind that you don’t always make a profit here!
During the bonus round it is possible to get some an additional multiplier. This will be awarded by spinning a wheel which you can see in the below image. In this case the x5 multiplier will be added to your current multiplier. If your current multiplier is x8 and you spin x5, Your new multiplier for the continuation of the bonus round will be x13.
It is a fairly simple feature, which will not always yield results. Still it is nice that it has been added. After a non-winning spin, it can become active just like that! The wheel behind the playing field is turned again, so that the top 4 boxes contain other symbols. This gives you a small chance to form combinations!
If you are really unlucky during your free spins, this feature will become active. If you stay below 30x your bet, the remainder will be replenished. A classic WMS feature!
