Where to play Maze Escape Megaways for real money?
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game will be 96.15%. 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 of the game, which beautifully reflects the theme that takes place in ancient times. At first glance, the playing field of the game looks a bit different than most variants, but it really consists of the usual 6 reels on which a maximum of 7 symbols can appear. At the top left of the screen you will see the title of the game, and on the right you will find the ‘spin' button. At the bottom of the playing field you see the other options and you can determine your bet, for example.
How does Maze Escape Megaways work?
With a playing field of 6 reels on which a maximum of 7 symbols can appear, a maximum of 117,649 Megaways are possible in 1 turn. The Megaways mechanism is probably already somewhat familiar to you, which means that you can form combinations in all possible ways and thus win. However, you do need 3 of the same symbol, which means that the same symbol must appear on at least the first 3 reels. The rest must land on a connecting reel or the same reel to participate in the combination. In addition, game features can help you win prizes, such as the Avalanche Feature, Modifiers, and the Free Spin Bonus. Below we discuss each of these individually. Finally, the betting range is between 0.20 and 40. Choose a bet from this and you are all set to start playing.
The Symbols & Payouts
We divide the symbols below into different categories, so that you have a clear overview. In addition, some extra information about the symbols follows:
- The basic symbols / low paying symbols consist of Greek letters Lamba, Theta, Omega and pay relatively the least in a combination.
- This is followed by 3 medium paying symbols consisting of a helmet, wreaths, and axes. For a combination with 6 symbols you get between 1x and 1.5x your bet.
- Next come the premium symbols / high paying symbols that consist of 3 different characters. For 6 of the same you get between 2x and 3x your bet back.
- Of course there is also a bonus / scatter symbol that you can recognize by the golden disc. You must collect 3 of these to clear the bonus round.
You can unlock this feature by forming a combination with the symbol that appears in the middle box on the first reel. This box has a golden edge, by which you can recognize it. Then all other symbols will disappear from the playing field, leaving only the symbols of the winning combination. However, these get a new position on the middle squares of the field, forming a kind of path. After this, all reels move one spot to the left. In addition, two Blocker symbols will also disappear. The nice thing about this feature is that it continues until you no longer form a winning combination!
These so-called Modifiers can also appear in the bonus round, which is discussed below, in addition to the basic game. You activate them by unlocking a Blocker symbol, since it contains the Modifiers. There are 2 different Modifiers:
- Helmet Blocker: This will place 1 to 4 golden symbols on the reels.
- Minotaur Blocker: The reel on which the feature is unlocked is completely covered with the Minotaur, which has a multiplier of a minimum of 2x and a maximum of 7x. Multiple multipliers multiply with each other.
Maze Escape Megaways Bonus Round
So you have to collect 3 bonus symbols in consecutive turns to unlock 10 free spins. Each winning combination will trigger the Avalanche Feature. Of course there is also a multiplier active during the bonus round, which starts at x1. Another advantage is the symbol with the wings of Icarus. This will give you either 1-3 extra spins or an increase in the multiplier by x1-x3.
Max win & Rating
The maximum win is 25,000x your stake and the game is scored 4/5 stars.
Once again, this Megaways variant of Fantasma Gaming has many unique game elements, making it fun to play. Because there are enough Features, Modifiers, and Bonuses it gets such a good score. It remains to be seen what it actually is like when you play it, but we expect a lot from it!
