Mega Mine Review
Mega Mine is a high-octane Wild West-themed slot developed by Relax Gaming. This fast-paced 5-reel, 32,768 ways to win slot is all about the Nudging Ways mechanic. This unique new mechanic sees a manic miner appear on the reels every so often who nudges the reel it lands on, leaving a trail of matching symbols in his wake, hopefully forming a big winning combination. In addition to this, there's a Mega Free Spins bonus that sees players receive 6 free spins with regular nudging mystery stacks.
We get some serious Bonanza Megaways vibes from this game, however, this is looks and feels better than the legendary Big Time Gaming slot in our opinion... If you take a long hard look at the overall design and compare the two slots side-by-side we think you'll see where we're coming from and agree.
The game symbols are set on large blocks of stones. Low paying symbols are small blue, purple, green, orange and red gems. High paying symbols are large square blue, purple, green, orange and red symbols... Simple! The special wild symbol is a dynamite detonator. If a nudging mystery stack comes into play then you'll see the manic miner come into play, pushing a mine cart filled with expensive gemstones! The scatter symbol is also a minecart filled with gems with the word SCATTER above it.
In terms of sound, when the reels aren't spinning you can hear ambient noises such as a stream flowing and a water wheel spinning. When the reels are spinning a typical tense wild west-inspired tune plays.
This slot is frighteningly fast-paced and we love it. Mega Mine sees big wins come by the way of random Nudging Mystery Stacks, powered by the new Nudging Ways mechanic.
In terms of navigating the slot, Mega Mine features the same action bar that most Relax Gaming slots have. From left to right this action bar has a hamburger menu that lets players enter the game rules, settings and paytable, a mute button, a stake selection tool, fast spin, spin and autospin.
This high volatility slot has an RTP of 95.15% and can see players win an absolutely massive 50,000x their stake, all in all, a pretty attractive game when it comes to win potential. During our gameplay, we were lucky enough to achieve some big wins by way of both the Nudging Mystery Stacks and the Mega Free Spins bonus.
Mega Mine was a lot of fun in our opinion, the nudging wins mechanic genuinely had us on the edge of our seats, and rightly so! We landed some pretty mouth-watering wins, and we think with a bit of patience and a decent bankroll you could land them too! Yes, we're all a little bit tired of mining-themed slots as they're massively overdone, however, this is definitely up there amongst the best of them.
