Beef Lightning Megaways review
Beef Lightning Megaways a high volatility 6-reel, 117,649 ways to win slot developed by Big Time Gaming. This unique animal-themed slot is a bit strange to say the least... It boasts a lucrative free spins feature that can see players collect special symbols including cows, auctioneer hammers and bonus coins that can trigger one of three fixed jackpots.
We'll start this section by addressing the weird and wonderful intro jingle... Big Time Gaming's Beef lightning Megaways has its very own bizarre, yet catchy jingle that we just couldn't get our heads around. Despite listening to it four or five times we couldn't really work out what the lead singer was singing. Regardless of how odd it all was, we still thoroughly enjoyed it and it got us in the mood for spins!
Upon loading into the game though we were a little confused, it's kind of hard to tell what's going on with this slot in terms of design and theming... The jingle features a boxing bell (maybe it's a cowbell reference?), however, this game is entirely about cows!
This bovine-themed slot features wooden reels designed to look like the gate to a farm (we think!), at the bottom of the reels is a cattle guard whilst behind them is lush green farmers fields featuring a barn and an old-fashioned windmill. The low-paying symbols in this slot are your standard Big Time Gaming 9, 10, J, K, Q, A. J. High paying symbols include a horseshoe, a cowbell, a cow and a bull. Special symbols include the world 'WILD' designed to look like a brand mark and a golden M as the scatter symbol.
In terms of the soundtrack, players are treated to calm and serene birdsong when the reels aren't spinning. When they are spun a jarring and quite out of place keyboard version of Grease Lightning plays
When it comes to navigating this slot, don't expect anything too dissimilar to most Big Time Gaming slots. All of the buttons to play the game can be found to the right of the game reels, firstly we have the large green play button, above that is the autoplay button and a hamburger menu that opens up the game's paytable and game settings. Above those two buttons is the stake selection tool. A counter in the top centre of the game reels shows how many ways to win are in play on any given spin.
Beef Lightning Megaways is a high volatility slot with a pretty good RTP sitting at 96.43%. The maximum win potential sits at an impressive 56,000x the player's stake, which is pretty damn tasty!
We'll be honest, at first we were pretty underwhelmed with Beef Lightning Megaways, we were confused with the theming and we couldn't really work out what this slot wanted to be! However, as we started spinning the reels it grew on us and when we got to the free spins bonus we were suitably impressed. It's not one of Big Time Gaming's best, but it's definitely worth playing.
