Merry Christmas Megaways Review
Make sure that you've been a good boy or girl this year as it's time for Santa's rewards in Merry Christmas Megaways. This Christmas slot is developed by Inspired Entertainment and uses the Megaways mechanic to give up to 117,649 ways to win.
Keeping it simple, this slot contains free spins with multipliers and random symbols dropping at any moment to improve your gameplay. You can even win up to 25,000x your stake in this high volatility slot.
Picture Santa's living room with a bright Christmas tree next to a roaring fire and you'll get the setting for this slot. However, it's a static image with no life which is slightly disappointing as the developers could've at least had a roaring fire.
All the symbols are related to Christmas with big presents, bells, sleighs and baubles with letters on them. These symbols at least animate on the reels during winning combinations which is something at least.
As for music, there's a generic Christmas track with uplifting bell noises mixed with violins. It's nothing too spectacular but will definitely get you in the holiday spirit. Thankfully, there's a voice-over from the big man himself (Santa) and he provides words of encouragement to get you through this slot.
Almost everyone within the iGaming world is familiar with the Megaways mechanic as it's become a staple within the industry and is easy to follow. There are up to 117,649 ways to win along with a free spins round with a multiplier.
All the relevant buttons that you may need are to the right of the reels with the spin button and bet level here. However, if you are interested in the Fortune Bet, then you'll find it to the left of the reels.
With high volatility, you can expect less often wins but at a larger rate when you do. Sadly, the RTP is at a low 95.5% that is under the average standard as we generally advise you to go for online slots with an RTP of 96% and above.
In this slot, you can win up to 25,000x your stake through the free spins round with the unlimited multipliers. We struggled to trigger the feature during the base game but improved our chances with the Fortune Bet that definitely improved our chances.
Merry Christmas Megaways is just like any other Christmas slot that tries to inject a bit of positivity and cheer into the slot. Whilst the design isn't anything original or impressive, the gameplay remains engaging with some solid wins.
The use of multipliers mixed with the free spins going up to 80 spins can lead to amazing wins reaching up to 50,000x your stake. Have yourself a jolly old time with Merry Christmas Megaways.
