Extra Juicy Megaways Review
The creative minds at Pragmatic Play had a hit on their hands with Extra Juicy as it combined a straightforward fruit machine slot and turned it into something special. Trying to relive the magic again, the slot developers have created a sequel to the beloved slot with Extra Juicy Megaways.
As the name suggests, this slot enhanced the original game with a Megaways makeover and even added a free spins round with multipliers leading to x16! Fans of the original do not want to miss out on Extra Juicy Megaways.
The overall design for this slot is what you'd expect with a bright and colourful background that is animated and adds more life to the slot. All the colours are pastel in the background but it makes the reels stand out even more.
On the reels, you'll find all your favourite fruit machine symbols such as cherries, lemons and oranges along with other classics such as 7s. The symbols are all designed well and stand out for the right reasons.
In a strange twist, the music feels like a pop track from the late 80s with a synth song playing to liven up the reels. There's not a whole lot going on in this slot but it works!
Extra Juicy Megaways plays on 6-reels with 117,649 ways to win with Megaways already enhancing the original gameplay. In the game, you'll find an easy free spins round and multipliers meaning that anyone can pick up and play this slot.
All the relevant buttons are at the bottom with the spin button and bet level - but non-UK players will find the bonus buy to the left of the reels as well.
The core RTP for this slot is 96.42% which is a respectable amount and this goes well with the high volatility level. During the gamble feature, the chance to win decreases as you aim higher, but still remains reasonable with a hit rate of 33.33% during the final gambling step.
Sadly, the maximum win is a little lacking compared to the original as Extra Juicy had a major win of 60,000x your stake whilst this slot only has 5,000x your stake. It's not a complete deal breaker but it's disappointing to know the original has a larger maximum win.
Extra Juicy Megaways hits almost all the right spots with the improved ways to win with Megaways and the overall presentation. The only thing that lets down this slot is the low maximum win which is baffling.
Despite this little hiccup, Extra Juicy Megaways is still a thrilling slot that is definitely worth a taste - if even for the funky music.
