Mystery Reels Megaways
Mystery Reels Megaways is 2019 re-release of Red Tiger Gaming classic Mystery Reels, this new and improved version of the slot boosts the ways to win from 20 paylines to a very healthy 117,649 by way of the legendary Megaways mechanics.
This colourful retro-themed slot boasts cascading symbols, cloning mystery symbols, free spins decided by a wheel-of-fortune, increasing multipliers and a daring gamble feature for those that like a bit more risk when they're spinning the reels.
Just like the original slot, Mystery Reels Megaways is designed to look as if it's being played on an old-school slot machine you might find in the early days of casinos. The reels are set into a shiny chrome cabinet, and the symbols are all reminiscent of those you might find on a classic machine.
Low paying symbols are classic fruit symbols: Cherries, lemon, orange, plum, grapes and watermelon. High paying symbols are a horseshoe, bell, star and flaming number 7.
In terms of sound, there's a high-tempo techno beat which is genuinely quite good (which makes a pleasant change) We found ourselves tapping our foot to the beat as the reels were spun.
There are also high octane sounds when winning clusters are registered and special symbols land on the reels. It's not often we praise slot soundtracks (as they're usually terrible) but this one really worked for us.
Like most Red Tiger Gaming slots, Mystery Reels Megaways does away with clutter and busy action bars and puts everything players need on three small, somewhat discreet buttons. In the bottom left-hand corner of the game screen, there's a stake button (which allows players to bet between 0.10 and 20) and an autoplay button (which allows players to set up to 100 automated spins). On the right-hand side of the game screen, there's a yellow spin button and that's it.
Players can keep an eye on how many paylines are currently active by looking at the Megaways box above the reels in the left-hand corner of the game screen.
Mystery Reel Megaways is a high volatility slot with varying RTP ranges, the highest possible RTP is 98.06% which of course piqued our interest, however, the standard RTP for this slot sits at 96.18% which is decent.
The maximum win on this Megaways slot sits at 10,000x the player's initial stake which is a number we always like to see, this game can be pretty generous and it's well worth playing for that reason alone.
Red Tiger Gaming took everything that was missing from the original Mystery Reels slot and squeezed it in alongside the 117,649 ways to win! We genuinely got stuck into playing this slot and we rate it pretty highly. It has decent winning potential, fun features and a great soundtrack. What more could you want?
