Dazzle Me Megaways Review
Dazzle Me Megaways is a follow up to NetEnt's popular 2015 release, Dazzle Me. This unusual Megways slot features what is arguably the strangest set of reels we've ever laid eyes upon... We're certainly not complaining though, because this set of reels feature up to 99,225 ways to win and can net players an impressive 50,000x their stake if things go their way during a bonus feature.
If we're being completely honest, don't expect Dazzle Me Megaways to actually dazzle you! This online slot isn't particularly exciting to look at (or listen to). That being said, we do have to say that this NetEnt slot is clean and well-designed, just not particularly exciting.
Behind the reels is a calming set of soft, slowly blinking multicoloured lights, whilst the golden reels themselves are adorned with generic online slot symbols which are various coloured gems of different shapes and sizes. Higher paying symbols include a four-leaf clover, a heart, a bell and a flaming number 7.
The special symbols in Dazzle Me Megaways are a dazzling wild symbol (which is a shining blue diamond) and an orange block that features the words 'Free Spins'.
It's hard to describe the soundtrack to Dazzle Me Megaways, but if we really had to try, we'd probably go with the music you're forced to listen to when put on hold on the telephone, take from that what you will.
Dazzle Me Megaways is pretty unique in the fact that it's played on 6 reels laid out in a 5-5-6-6-7-7 formation (two reels with 5 symbols on them, two reels with 6 symbols on them and two reels with 7 symbols on them).
Whenever players register a winning spin the symbols explode into tiny fragments and are removed from the game screen, this allows for new symbols to fall into place (known as an avalanche).
In terms of navigating the slot, if you've ever played a NetEnt game before you'll be right at home. All of the buttons are placed onto an action bar below the game reels.
From left to right there's a hamburger menu that displays the game settings, game rules. Next to that is the info button that displays the paytable followed by stake selection, autospin, play and fast spin buttons.
Like practically every Megaways slot the number of Megaways is displayed in a separate bar above the game reels, in this case directly below the game's logo.
Dazzle Me Megaways is a medium volatility slot with an RTP of 96.10% and a mammoth maximum win potential of 50,000x the player's stake, what's not to love?
We'll be honest, we didn't really think that Dazzle Me Megaways needed to ever happen, as the original game wasn't particularly dazzling in the first place... However, credit where credit's due, this slot isn't at all terrible.
The overall presentation is a bit dull, but the gameplay was pretty enjoyable thanks to the Megaways mechanic, which often goes a long way to improving a game... Especially as the addition has led to wins up to 50,000x the player's stake.
