Pokie Megaways Review
There's no denying that Megaways is absolutely huge and one of the biggest mechanics within the iGaming world. This is why iSoftBet decided to use the mechanic and combine it with their iconic Hold & Win mechanic that is growing in popularity.
If you've ever played one of the Hold & Win slots such as Brides of Dracula Hold & Win or Lanterns & Lions: Hold & Win and thought that you wanted Megaways into the mix - then Pokie Megaways is the slot you've been searching for.
As the name suggests, this slot is set in the outback of Australia and the visuals are actually quite breathtaking. There are various mountains and the slot is set during sunset so there's a golden tint on the screen.
Amazingly, there are also animations throughout the slot with the wind blowing and various plant life moving in the wind for added effect.
All the reels contain symbols relating to the outback such as a cowboy, koalas, alligators, Australia and even the hilarious 'Roo Casino'.
The music in this slot is quite relaxing with woodwind instruments and drums mixed with animal sounds that is refreshing for an online slot.
There is obviously the Megaways mechanic in this slot but then the added Hold & Win mechanic. None of these mechanics are too complicated and anyone can pick it up.
To the right of the reels, there is a spin button and a bet level for players. At the bottom left, you'll find all the additional menus in case you need them.
Unfortunately, the RTP for this slot is 95.98% which is just under the average standard. Whilst this isn't a deal-breaker, it's frustrating that iSoftBet didn't adhere to the average standard and had to be under.
This slot contains a medium to high volatility level leading to a mixture of low and high volatility wins but with a focus on high volatility.
In addition to this, the maximum win for this slot is 12,000x your stake that can be achieved through the Hold & Win mechanic.
The mixture of Megaways and Hold & Win is definitely appreciated in this slot and done pretty well for the most part. However, we would've preferred to see something extra such as multipliers or stacking wilds - but that doesn't affect our experience too much.
iSoftBet slots tend to uphold a high standard and thankfully this slot lives up to that. There are a few teething problems with the RTP and lack of additional features, but we recommend this slot if you love Hold & Win and fancy something extra.
