The playing field contains 6 reels, and at the top are the Jackpot squares. The moment you spin, these Jackpots disappear and you can see how many megaways are used that turn. To the left of the playing field you can choose your bet, while on the other side you see the ‘spin’ button and autoplay function. There are also some amounts such as your balance, the amount you win, and your chosen bet at the bottom of the game.
How does Slots O Gold Megaways work?
We are used to most megaways games that there are a maximum of 117,649 megaways, but with this game there are a lot less. Since a maximum of 5 symbols can appear per reel, we arrive at a total of max 15,625 megaways.A nice bonus is the fact that you can make winning combinations from both sides, instead of just from the left reel. The Cascading Symbols principle is also not found in this game, which we personally think is a shame. Furthermore, the game works the same as you are used to, except that you can make combinations from both sides.
How do you play Slots O Gold Megaways?
Before you start the game there are two choices you have to make yourself. First you determine your bet, where you can choose between a number of amounts between 0.10 and 50 euros. Then see if you want to enable the autoplay function for a certain number of spins. The alternative to this is simply that you click on spin every turn. Then the game can begin and we hope for nice winnings for you!
The Symbols / The Prices
This slot machine also has four categories in terms of symbols, which we will list below. In each category we provide enough information about what the symbols look like and what they pay out with a ‘6 of a kind’:
- There are 6 basic symbols, which you can recognize by the card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. The first 4 of this row pay back 1x your bet with 6 of the same, while the K and A pay back 1.5x your bet.
- There are also 4 premium symbols, consisting of a u-shaped symbol, a harp, a hat, and a pot of gold. The first two symbols mentioned pay back 2x your bet, the hat 10x, and the pot of gold even 50x!
- There is also a wild symbol, which has the usual functions. You can recognize it by its masculine character, and it can take the place of all of the above symbols!
- You can recognize the mystery symbol by the text ‘Rainbow Gold’ and they all change into the same symbol.
The Leprechaun can just appear out of nowhere, and you benefit greatly from it. You will then receive:
- An expanding wild all over the reel.
- A multiplier between 2x and 5x.
- A free respin.
It may just happen that you have multiple expanding wilds in a row, with which you can win better prizes and a higher multiplier. Wilds only occur on the middle four reels and you can get a maximum of 3 respins. Actually, you should get this feature in combination with the mystery spin for the really big prizes!
Slots O’Gold Megaways may not have a free spins bonus, but the game does participate in the Jackpot King from game provider BluePrint Gaming. This gives you a chance to win this progressive Jackpot, when it is activated at random moments.
Max win & Rating
You can earn back a maximum of 10,000x your bet here, which can yield nice amounts with a max bet of 50 euros. The game gets an average score from us: 3/5 stars.
It is a fun game with some nice features, but we still miss a real bonus round. In addition, there are fewer ways to win and no cascading reels, which we regret. Hence, we cannot give the game a top score.
