90's Mania Megaways Features
You’ll need standard 9-A pay symbols along with 90’s objects of note to land in order to grab a win in this game. In ascending order of value, those objects are Rubik’s Cube, Tamagotchi, Gameboy and Ghetto Blaster. Starting from the leftmost reel, winning combinations come in the form of at least 3 matching symbols landing anywhere on at least 3 adjacent reels.
There is also a Top Tracker Reel, which comes in handy when searching for winning combinations. In contrast to the standard reels below, new symbols come in from the right rather than from above. It’s also the only place where you’ll see Cassette Wild symbols drop. These obsolete music media symbols substitute for all except Scatter symbols, and they only apply to the highest value winning combo they’re part of. There are also Mystery symbols, which all become the same random symbol as they drop.
Winning combo symbols disappear and further symbols cascade down (and swing in from the right in the Top Tracker), potentially yielding further wins. This process repeats itself until there are no more wins.
Mania Free Spins Bonus Round
4 or more Bonus Scatter symbols trigger the bonus round, although some players outside the UK can activate this automatically for just 50x their stake. Bear in mind that Scatters don’t fall within the 4-position Top Tracker.
At the start of the bonus game, players are given a choice between taking a guaranteed 8 free spins or gambling them for a possible 12. If you choose to gamble, depending on where the dial stops on the alternating green and red wheel, you’re given the choice to take however many spins you may have won, or spin again to potentially win more free spins. By doing this, players can potentially win up to 30 free spins. Be careful, if the dial lands on Red, you end up with nothing and go back to the base game.
The bonus game works very much like the standard game, but you’ll notice an Unlimited Win Multiplier to the right of the game area. It only starts at 1x, but it’s increased by 1 with every win. Keep an eye on the Top Tracker as it may show Free Spin Scatters, thereby awarding the player with extra Free Spins. If you see 3 Free Spin Scatters, you get 5 extra spins. 4 Free Spin Scatters give you 10.
