Neptune's Fortunes Megaways Review
Since January 15 of this year, Neptune's Fortunes Megaways can be played in various online casinos. Neptune's Fortunes Megaways is a game developed by ISoftBet, a well-known game provider in the field of Megaways variants. The name of the casino (Neptune's) refers to the Roman god of water / sea. Hence, the theme and game are also in the ocean. We are very curious about what this brand new slot machine has to offer, and in the review below we have sorted that out for you!
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game will be 96.03%. 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 background takes place at the bottom of the ocean, and this shows the playing field. This playing field consists of 6 reels, and 5 treasure chests can be seen at the top. The middle treasure chest belongs to reels 3 and 4 while the other reels have their own treasure chest. On the left you will see from top to bottom: The title, the number of Megaways in effect, the four Jackpots, the sound, and the settings. On the other side you will find the autoplay button, the ‘spin' button, and the bet option. At the bottom you see the remaining amount on your balance and your chosen bet.
How does Neptune's Fortunes Megaways work?
Unlike the most standard playing field of Megaways games, here a maximum of 6 symbols can appear per reel. This gives you a maximum number of Megaways of 46,656. Megaways are simply ways to win. On these paylines you have to try to make combinations with the same symbols. Such a combination must always start on reel 1, and it usually needs at least 3 symbols. Since combinations can only be formed on adjacent reels, this means that at least the first 3 reels must contain the same symbol. However, it will of course be more profitable if you manage to include more symbols in your combination. Furthermore, it is hoped that you will eventually be able to unlock the vouchers round, Jackpot, or just one of the features. This is the way to win big prizes. Besides the bet choice (between 0.20 and 20 euros) you have little influence on the outcome of the game.
The Symbols & Payouts
To put the symbols in an overview, we have created 4 categories. Each category is provided with the necessary information:
- First of all, there are 5 card symbols that make up the basic symbols. The card symbols that participate are the 10 to A. For a combination with 6 of the same symbols you get 0.8x, 0.9x, 1x, 1.1x, and 1.2x your bet back respectively.
- There are also 5 premium symbols, or the high paying symbols. These consist of a starfish, a conch, a turtle, an octopus, and the Roman god himself. Respectively, these symbols give you 1.5x, 1.5x, 2x, 5x, and 40x your bet for a 6-of-a-kind.
- Next comes the familiar wild symbol that can replace any symbol except the scatter symbol. It can help you make combinations that will win you prizes.
- You can unlock the bonus round from 4 ‘Trident scatter' symbols in 1 turn!
The most famous feature in Megaways games is the Cascading Reels feature. Symbols from the winning combinations will disappear and make way for new ones. This allows you to make new combinations within the same bet.
5 Treasure Chests
The treasure chests have already been mentioned in the section on design. By spinning a wild on one of the reels, one of the 5 treasure chests can open. Treasury 1, 2, 4, and 5 will then show a multiplier of up to x5 valid for that turn. If multiple treasure chests, and therefore multipliers, are active during the same turn, they multiply by each other. When the middle treasure chest is activated (above reels 3 and 4), you unlock the Neptune's bonus round.
Neptune's Bonus Round
In this bonus round you try to win Jackpots by clicking on certain pearls. So there are 4 Jackpots you can win, namely the Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand Jackpot. When you manage to form a 3 of a kind you will win that Jackpot. These Jackpots pay back 20x, 50x, 200x, and 1000x your stake respectively!
When you spin 4, 5, or 6 Trident scatters at the same time, you unlock 10, 12, or 15 free spins respectively. In principle, the bonus round works the same as the basic game, and the treasure chests and the Neptunes bonus are just there. However, all base symbols have been removed from the reels, so only the premium symbols participate. You can win extra free spins by spinning 4 or more scatter symbols in 1 turn.
Max win & Rating
The maximum profit is 9,710x your bet. With a maximum bet of 20 euros, we arrive at 194,200 euros. An excellent amount. The game also receives 4/5 stars as a score.
We award such a good score, among other things, because the game has a kind of 2 bonus rounds. In addition to a free spins round, you also have the Neptunes round, in which you have a chance to win 4 Jackpots! You can also win nice multipliers for the basic game by using the treasure chests. In addition to all this, the Cascading Reels Feature is also active. All in all, a nice game.
