Valletta Megaways Slot Review
The tiny island of Malta has a turbulent history. Today, the small island in the Mediterranean is the center of the online gambling industry and even has his own slot, Valletta Megaways. Thousands of online casinos and game providers are based in Malta. Not so much because of the nice weather, but because of the liberal gambling law and the friendly tax rates on the island. Sometimes referred to as euphemistic iGaming, the online gambling industry provides employment to thousands of the island’s residents and accounts for 12 percent of the Maltese economy. Big guns like Unibet, Leo Vegas and Betsson are located in Malta. And those are not the only guns in Malta. Valletta is originally a fort with cannons. The Knights Hospitallers repelled a Turkish invasion from this fort during the Siege of Malta. They did this under the direction of Jean de la Vallette. The city of Valletta is also named after him. A town with 5 thousand inhabitants, about the same as the village of Simpelveld in Limburg.
Anyway, Blueprint thought it was high time for a slot that is kind of an ode to Valletta, the capital of Malta. BluePrint Gaming has unpacked with Megaways, giving you a maximum of 15,625 ways-to-win.
How to play at Valletta Megaways slot machine?
You play with a minimum of 0.10 and a maximum of ten per spin on the Valleta Megaways slot machine. There are no paylines, but there are MegaWays. The real Megaways, because Blueprint Gaming has bought an official Megaways license from competitor Big Time Gaming. Big Time Game is the creator of Megaways. You play with six roles. The nice thing is that the reels do not have the same number of symbols on every spin. Each reel has a minimum of 3 symbols. Five reels with three symbols gives 729 (3 * 3 * 3 * 3 * 3 * 3) ways to win. Each spin differs the number of symbols per reel. Minimum 3 and maximum 5. At best, you have 5 symbols on each reel. That gives you 15,625 ways to win. And so there is a chance of colossal payouts. That’s Megaways in a nutshell.
Symbols and Payouts
The payouts don’t seem very impressive at first, but wait until you turn a few combinations with a nice number of Mega Ways. The city coat of arms of Valletta is the best paying symbol. Five times this city coat of arms will give you 25 times your stake. Suppose you have 2 on the 1st reel, 2nd on the 2nd reel, 1 on the 3rd reel, 2 on the 4th reel, 2 on the 5th reel and 3 on the sixth reel, you take (25 times 48) 1,200 times your effort. And then with stacked symbols and a maximum of five symbols per reel it can be even more intense than those 1,200 times.
Other symbols on Valletta Megaways include a map of Valletta, a knight’s sword, the Knights Hospitaller’s weapon and the inevitable playing card symbols.
A harnessed Hospital Knight is the Wild symbol. With the Bible in hand, these knights defended the Roman Catholic island. If you’re lucky, grab the “Valletta Streak” after a winning spin. This feature is comparable to the Sticky Win of Jack Hammer (and Jack Hammer 2). The winning symbols remain sticky. You will then receive respins as long as you spin extra of these winning symbols. The ultimate goal of the Valletta Streak is of course a screen full of one and the same symbol.
How does the bonus game work?
You unlock bonus from Valletta Megaways by spinning at least three bonus symbols. This bonus symbol is a cannon used to defend Malta against foreign invasions. The more cannons, the more bonus spins:
- 10 bonus spins when you spin the cannon 3 times,
- 12 bonus spins when you spin the cannon 4 times,
- 15 bonus spins when you spin the cannon 5 times,
- 20 bonus spins when you spin the cannon 6 times.
The difference with the basic game? In the base game you randomly get the Valletta Streak after winning spins. This is different in the bonus. You get the Valletta Streak after every winning spin. This makes bonus spins a lot more lucrative than spins in the base game.
You can also buy the bonus. That will cost you 100 times your stake. We strongly recommends it. The bonus is not only fun and exciting, but also offers a better payout percentage. You play with 97 percent instead of 96.45 percent if you only play the bonus.
What do we think about Valletta Megaways?
Awesome. we are fans of the first hour of the Megaways mechanism. And he’s not alone, because Big Time Gaming and Blueprint are blowing NetEnt and MicroGaming out of the online casino with these Megaways slots. Megaways slots guarantee excitement, thrills and (chance of) extremely large prizes.
The theme Malta and Valletta can also be there. Malta is the mecca of the online gambling industry. Besides that, Valletta is also just a nice town with beautiful, historic buildings, which is in fact nothing reminiscent of the fast online gambling world. Up to now. From now on when CasinoJager swirls through Il-Belt, the thoughts will sometimes wander to this great slot machine.
