RTP en Variance

The RTP, or return to player, for this game will be 96.2%. 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

The design and background are quite colorful, naturally using the purple and blue color of the PlayOJO casino. This has a playing field consisting of 6 reels, on which 2-7 symbols can appear. To the left of this you will see the number of Megaways that are active each turn. On the right you see the Buy a Bonus feature and a number of stars that will be discussed later. At the bottom you will find extra info from left to right, the bet choice, the autoplyay function, and the ‘spin' button.

How does PlayOJO Branded Megaways work?

The operation of the game is also fairly standard. The playing field therefore consists of 6 reels of max 7 symbols, so that a maximum of 117,649 Megaways are active per turn. Megaways can be seen as paylines on which you can form combinations. You form a combination by turning at least 3 of the same symbols. However, a combination must always start on reel 1 and you can only use right adjacent reels. So you need at least the same symbol on reel 1-3. The more symbols you add to this, the higher the payout. Furthermore, you only have to choose an iznet before you start. For this you can choose from a range between 0.20 and 20 per spin.

The Symbols & Payouts

We divide the symbols into 3 categories, since there will be no bonus symbol:

  • The first category consists of 5 basic symbols, namely the 10 to A. These card symbols can also be seen as the ‘low paying symbols', as they yield the least in combinations.
  • There are also 5 premium symbols, or high paying symbols. These consist of 5 different symbols, namely colored diamonds / gemstones (red, blue, and green), a silver bar, and a gold bar. These symbols pay out more if you form a combination with them.
  • Of course there is also a Wild symbol, but in this game there are even two different ones. On the one hand, you have the normal Wild that can replace all the above-mentioned symbols, making it easier to make combinations. In addition, you have the 2x multiplier Wild that doubles your winnings. Of these, 3 can be on the screen at the same time, giving you a multiplier of x8.

Cascading Reels

The most famous Megaways feature cannot be missed in this Branded version. This feature (also called Tumble feature) ensures that symbols disappear from winning combinations. This makes way for new symbols, giving you the chance to win more and new combinations within the same bet. This process is repeated until no winning combination is made.

PlayOJO Branded Megaways Bonus Round

During the free spins feature, which you unlock with the 4 consecutive combinations, there are a number of nice things. There are so-called ‘locking reels', which means that a reel remains fixed if it consists of the maximum number of 7 symbols. In addition, a progressive multiplier is active that starts at x1 and increases by +1 for each winning combination.

Buy a Bonus Feature

You can also reach the bonus round by purchasing it, which will make you skip the base game. For this you can choose from a number of combinations of free spins (6, 8, or 10) and locking reels (0 or 1). When you choose the most expensive combination (10 spins with 1 locked reel) this will cost you 130x your bet! You will therefore have to pay no less than 130 with a ‘normal' bet of 1. Then you play the bonus round as if you had bet 1 and you will therefore first have to win 130 to end positively at all.

Max win & Rating

The maximum win is 40,000x your stake, which can yield a huge profit. So if you bet 20, this means a maximum profit of 800,000! In addition, the game gets a score of 3/5 stars.

Conclusion

The average score is mainly because we can reasonably expect in advance what this game has to offer. Due to the standard format (which also contains many standard Megaways elements) it does not have much surprising in store. However, the extra Wild symbol is nice and we also find the Locking Reel an addition. Hence the average score.
