Dice Runner Megaways Slot Review
Dice Runner Megaways is another Megaways variant of the well-known game provider Stakelogic. Earlier they released a Megaways game in which dice played a major role, called Super Dice Megaways. If you've ever played this game, some things like the symbols may seem familiar to you. It is also a fairly simple slot machine, but that does not always have to be negative of course. In this review we discuss all the details you need to know, so that you can form a good opinion about the game yourself afterwards.
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game will be 95.99%. 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 design is also familiar to us from Super Dice Megaways, where the background is supposed to represent a game hall. You also see the borders of the slot machine you play on. The playing field has the usual formation of 6 reels on which a maximum of 7 symbols can appear. At the top you will find from left to right the number of Megaways, the title of the game, and the amount you win. Under each reel you will find an arrow with the text ‘Hold' below. You can see your balance and bet determination at the bottom of the game, the ‘spin' button is on the right, and the other options on the left.
How does Dice Runner Megaways work?
6 reels of a maximum of 7 symbols means that this game can also have a maximum of 117,649 Megaways. The Megaways principle actually means that you can make combinations in all possible ways. However, most symbols require at least 3 symbols, and combinations always start from the first reel. This means that you have to spin at least 1 of the same symbol on the first 3 reels. The more symbols of these you include in the combination, the higher the prizes. Furthermore, the operation of a number of Features and the Free Spins Bonus are discussed below, which makes it easier for you to win prizes! The betting range of minimum 0.20 and maximum 40 euros will also be very recognizable for the Stakelogic fans. Before playing, Choose your bet and wether you want to use the Super Stake Feature (double your stake).
The Symbols & Payouts
In the overview below, the symbols are described on the basis of a number of categories. In addition, some extra information will follow about these symbols:
- The basic symbols consist of the dice with value 1 to 6, and can be regarded as the ‘low paying symbols'. For a combination with 6 of the same, you will get between 1.6x and 3x your bet back.
- We have also seen the 4 premium symbols before, consisting of Chinese characters in different colors. From low to high these have the colors black, blue, green, and red and for 6 of the same you get 3x, 4x, 15x, and 60x your stake.
- A wild symbol can substitute for all other symbols, as usual. Only the scatter symbol is an exception. You can recognize it by the letters BAR on it.
- Collect enough bonus symbols and you will unlock the Free Spin Bonus.
Cascading Reels Feature
Nowadays, this feature can no longer be ignored in Megaways slots, and ensures that winning symbols disappear. New symbols come in their place, giving you the chance to win more combinations within the same turn. As long as you keep forming winning combinations, this feature will also remain active.
Hold and Respins Feature
The Hold and Respins Feature can help you reach the bonus round. Since you need at least 4 scatter symbols to reach the bonus round, this feature becomes active if you spin at least 3 scatters on the reels. All reels with a scatter symbol are then held and a respin follows, so you might spin that 4th scatter. When this is actually successful, the respin feature will remain active until you no longer spin a new bonus symbol. This allows you to give your bonus round a big boost.
You may also know this feature from other variants, but with Dice Runner Megaways you will be asked in advance if you want it at all. If you answer yes to this, you can choose to gamble after each winning combination and thus increase your price. For this you can try to double it by playing red vs black with playing cards (50% chance). But you can also quadruple it by guessing not only the suit but also the type of card (25% chance). If you lose, you lose everything, and you can do it up to 5 times.
Dice Runner Megaways Bonus Round
For 4 bonus symbols you get 8 free spins, but each additional bonus symbol gives you an additional +5 spins. During the bonus round you can also earn extra spins by spinning 3 or more scatter symbols in 1 turn. For this you also get +5 free spins. There is also an unlimited multiplier active that starts at x1 and increases by +1 for each winning combination. This means that huge amounts can be won!
Max win & Rating
Due to the unlimited multiplier, the maximum profit with this slot machine is also unlimited! In addition, the game earns a 3/5 star rating, which is fine.
It's a really good slot, and many features have been applied to it. In addition, the RTP of 96% is excellent and there are great prizes to be won. However, in many ways the game is very similar to previous Stakelogic slots, as you could read in the beginning. That is why we only give 3 stars because of this small point of criticism on the originality.
