One of the major advantages of a Megaways title is that you won’t simply be waiting for the bonus round to begin. The base game has plenty to offer—but it is undeniable that the bonus features will kick out the biggest prizes.
There are 2 main bonuses to speak of, and activating either one of them is possible in a number of ways. Firstly, there are other good old-fashioned scatter symbols.
Landing 3 or more regular, silver scatter symbols will give you a chance to choose your free spins feature of choice. And if you see a gold mega scatter land on the final reel as part of this set of 3 scatter symbols, the bonus feature will be enhanced.
Secondly, pay attention to the win exchange system. When you land a win that is 100 times your stake or higher, you'll be offered the chance to exchange 100x to enter the free spins round. You might get the standard free spins or you might hit the enhanced version.
The second part of the win exchange comes your way if you grab a winning total of between 25x and 100x your wager. You can risk the entire win for a chance to spin the prize wheel. There are equal parts on the wheel that will either give you entry to the free spins round or simply send you home with your tail between your legs.
The third option is to use the bonus buy. This is only available for players outside the UK. To activate your choice of regular free spins rounds, it will cost you 70x. But if you would like to go for the enhanced version, then expect to stump up 300x.
Full Reel Wilds
Full reel wilds are pretty much as you would expect. But there is a twist! The outlaw wild symbol will reach across the entire reel and simply act as a standard wild. But if you see the sheriff wild symbol cover a reel, then expect the standard wild treatment plus an X7 multiplier for any wins that it helps to create.
Fallen Angel Free Spins
This is the first of 2 bonus rounds up for grabs. When you start the standard feature, you will be given 7 free spins and one of the lower-paying symbols to act as a sticky wild.
Every time one of these lands on the game board, they stay in place for the duration of the game. And if you get an entire reel filled up with sticky wilds, then an extra 3 free spins are yours. For the enhanced feature version, a higher-paying symbol will also be selected as a sticky wild. It performs in exactly the same way as the other one.
Dizzy in the Head Free Spins
The second free spins feature comes with 8 free spins and a chance to hit loads of fantastic multipliers. There is a stacked wild that makes its way randomly between the reels and when it stops, it acts as a standard wild for the most part.
However, you will notice a multiplier ladder taking up the top section of this wild symbol. Any wins that land making use of the wild multiplier will receive a prize boost. During the standard bonus game, the multipliers reset between each spin. However, this is not the case in the enhanced version.
After each spin, the lower multiplier value disappears and a new, higher maximum multiplier arrives at the top of the ladder. The maximum multiplier available is 777. Receiving an extra 3, 4 or 5 silver scatters during the bonus round will deliver 4, 6 or 8 additional free spins to your balance.
