Mystery Reels Megaways Slot Review
Mystery Reels Megaways is the very first Megaways slot from Red Tiger Gaming, a provider that is growing like crazy. The Red Tiger slots are known for their fun themes and unique bonus rounds. We were therefore very curious about these Mystery Reels Megaways. How would the clever minds of Red Tiger manage to give their own interpretation to the proven Megaways concept? At least they kept it safe as a theme: a real fruit cabinet, but with up to 117,649 ways to win. There are also free spins, there is a bonus gamble option and you can win extra multipliers. And oh yes, there are also mystery symbols with guaranteed winning combinations.
How to play at Mystery Reels Megaways slot?
Mystery Reels Megaways is a Megaways slot. So no paylines, but ways to win. Lots of ways to win. There are 6 reels that have varying heights every turn. If all reels are at the maximum height, there will be 117,649 ways to win. Winning combinations disappear and new symbols take their place. This can lead to several winning combinations in a row. The variance is clearly high: it is possible to win payouts up to 10,000 x the total bet. The theoretical payout percentage is 96.18%.
You can place bets from 0.20 per spin and that increases to 10 per spin.
Question marks may appear on the screen at random times. Hidden below these question marks are the same mystery symbols that always ensure a payout.
Symbols and Payouts
A fruit cupboard naturally has the classic fruit cupboard symbols. The red seven is traditionally the highest paying and that is also the case here. 6 red sevens will give you a prize of 50 x the total bet. The stars also yield relatively much: 7.5 x the stake, respectively. If you turn 6 clocks or 6 horseshoes, 2 x the total bet will be added. All fruit symbols (grapes, melons, plums, lemons, oranges and cherries) give you between 0.8 x and 1.8 x the total bet.
Free spins bonus
3 or more scatters will give you the free spins bonus. You get 8 free spins and you get the option to use these in the gamble feature. On a large wheel you will see values of 4, 12 and 20 free spins. So you always win at least 4 free spins and 12 or 20 if you are lucky. Now it often takes an incredibly long time before you win the bonus round, so we can imagine that you choose eggs for your money and go for the 8 spins. Then it is a matter of pressing the collect button. During the free spins, the multiplier is increased by +1 after each winning combination. The further you go, the greater the chance of mega payouts. It is possible to win extra free spins: 3 scatters will give you +5 extra free spins.
What do we think of Mystery Reels Megaways?
Frankly, we are a little disappointed by Mystery Reels Megaways. It’s all very solid, but we just expected a bit more from Red Tiger. There is nothing in this Megaways slot that we have not seen anywhere else. In short: a nice debut for Red Tiger on the Megaways front, but not very spectacular yet.
