Machina Megaways Slot Review
Machina Megaways is one of the undoubtedly many new Megaways slots that we can experience in 2019. This slot is the first Megaways released via the Relax Gaming (Kalamba Games) platform. The game is set in the future, where hyper-intelligent robots rule the game. While the game may seem a bit complicated, it is only outward appearance. Once you have played the bonus round, you will understand exactly what it is all about.
How to play at Machina Megaways slot?
The win all ways mechanism is active and with Megaways slots that means: many ways to win. Depending on how many rows of symbols are on the six reels, you can have up to 46,656 ways to win. You can bet from 0.60 per spin and that increases to 36 per spin.
Payout Rate and Variance from Machina Megaways
The theoretical payout rate is between 96.59% – 97.42%. The difference is in whether or not to buy the bonus feature right away. If you only play the normal basic game, the RTP is the lowest: 96.59%. After that, depending on the number of spins you buy, the RTP increases in steps, up to a maximum of 97.42%. The variance of this slot is clearly high: it seems to be possible to win more than 10,000 x the total bet on Machina Megaways.
Buy a bonus feature
The real adrenaline comes from the bonus rounds at Megaways slots. It has therefore been a smart move to implement the so-called Bonus Drop. You pay a (substantial) amount at once, but then you immediately have the bonus feature.
These are the options:
- 10 free spins: more than 52 x the bet
- 12 free spins: more than 89 x the bet
- 15 free spins: 185 x the bet
- 18 free spins: 337 x the bet
Symbols and Payouts
The Eastern futuristic theme is beautifully elaborated. Especially the robots (the premium symbols) look beautiful and have such a wonderful glow around them as soon as they make a winning combination. Spin 6 of the same robots and you win between 3.33x and 2.9x the total bet. The card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are worth the bet on a 6-of-a-kind between 1.66x and 2x. The wild symbol is a yellow electrical circuit and substitutes for all symbols except the scatters.
Free spins bonus
The free spins bonus can be won in two ways: by buying it or by spinning 3 or more scatters. During the free spins the aim is to save as many yellow electric circuit symbols as possible. If you save enough of it, you win 2 extra spins. In addition, 1 of the 4 “lesser” robots is changed to the main robot. This way you get more and more chance of mega payouts. In addition, with the highest premium symbol (the female robot) you can win jackpots that amount to 1,000 x the bet.
What do we think of the Machina Megaways slot?
This is a great addition to the ever-growing family of Megaways slots. Graphically it is a nice video slot and the free spins bonus, with the respins and the transforming premium symbols, is exciting enough. We are curious when we reach the point that there are simply too many Megaways slots. As long as slots providers keep coming up with new bonus features and fun themes around the Megaways, the saturation point is still a bit away from us.
