Big Bucks Bandits Megaways Review
Big Bucks Bandits Megaways is a game from Reel Play, which previously released a number of other megaways games. However, we have to say that we weren't very impressed by these games, although the last variant (Odin Infinity Reels Megaways) was a lot better. The theme of this new game is the Wild West, a well-known topic in the online gambling world. Below you can find out everything about this new megaways game!
Where to play Big Bucks Bandits Megaways for real money?
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game is 96.1%. 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.
Let's start with the background, which shows a rocky landscape. Furthermore, the game can seem quite busy at first, because there are quite a lot of things on the screen. The playing field consists of the usual 6 reels with the middle 4 having an extra box at the top. In the top right corner you will find the title and the number of megaways in force, while in the other top corner you will see the Jackpots. You will also see the ‘Buy a Bonus' feature on the left, while on the other side you will find the ‘spin' button and the menu. The bottom gives some extra information regarding your balance, your chosen bet, and the amount you win.
How does Big Bucks Bandits Megaways work?
The basic game has many features that other megaways also have, such as the alternating number of rows with a maximum of 7. Since there are 6 reels, this means a maximum number of 117,649 megaways per spin. The first and last reel have a minimum of 2 symbols, while the middle 4 have at least 3 due to the box above. Winning combinations also make room for new symbols, giving you the chance to win even more prizes in the same turn. There are also a number of extra features in the game, such as the ‘Gamble Feature' and there are jackpots to be won. You can read more about this later in this review.
How do you play Big Bucks Bandits Megaways?
The betting range is between 0.25 and 25, making the maximum bet slightly higher than most other megaways games. First make a choice in terms of bet, and then decide whether you want to enable the autoplay function or whether you press ‘spin' yourself. After that, it's a matter of hoping for great prizes and unlocking the bonus round!
The Symbols / The Prices
As you are used to from us, we like to divide the symbols into categories. This gives you a clear overview of the differences and what the symbols pay out. Below is a list with the required information per category:
- Logically, the low paying symbols pay less when you form combinations with them, and you can expect between 0.5x and 1.2x your bet back with 6 of the same. The symbols consist of 6 symbols, some of which are cowboy attributes such as pistols and a hat.
- The high paying symbols, on the other hand, are good for many large prizes, namely between 2x and 100x your bet with a ‘6 of a kind'. This category consists of 4 symbols, 2 of which are male characters, 1 female character, and a horse.
- The wild symbol can, as always, substitute for all other symbols except the bonus symbol. However, the wild symbol can only appear on the top reel (the 4 squares).
- There is also a bonus symbol that you can recognize by the large bag of coins. With this you can of course unlock the bonus round!
Bonus Rounds in Big Bucks Bandits Megaways
The bonus round in this game is called ‘Jackpot Heist Respins', and you can unlock it by spinning 6 of the money bags! The money bags can contain various things such as:
- A cash prize
- Bronze Jackpot (10 x the bet)
- Silver Jackpot (50 x the bet)
- Gold Jackpot (250 x the bet)
- Platinum Jackpot (1,000 x the bet)
In addition, you have 3 respins with which you can try to collect more money bags! Spin the Platinum Jackpot and the money is pouring in!
Buy a Bonus Feature
Nowadays, this popular feature can no longer be ignored from some megaways variants, and is therefore also included in this. For 60x your stake you can buy the above bonus round directly. You then simply play the 3 respins, which are replenished as soon as you spin a cash amount. Then comes the ‘Gamble Feature' after it, with which you can double your prize up to 5x.
After the bonus round you can choose to play this or keep your cash prize. This feature is animated as a 1 on 1 battle with pistols, where you can win but also lose money. You spin a wheel that is half filled with green squares, and the other half filled with dark squares. Your cash prize will go up as soon as you hit the green box. The starting position is x1, and after the first try you can go up to x1.5 or down to x0.5. x5 is the maximum profit, while you lose all your money as soon as you land on x0.
