You won’t find many better-looking slot games that Valletta MegaWays. The design here is terrific. The reels are set against a port and castle backdrop. On those deep red reels, you’ll find metal-style A to 9 symbols as well as swords, shields and maps. The lion rampant banner is the top symbols. Land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 of them in combination and you’ll pocket an award of 0.5, 1, 5, 10 and 25 times your stake. There’s also a wild, the knight in armour. This replaces all of the standard symbols.
Winning combinations are created by landing matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from reel 1. The number of symbols on each reel changes with each spin. As does the possible ways to win. If all 6 reels expand to their maximum, you’ll have 15,625 MegaWays in play. As usual, Blueprint Gaming has packed some decent extras into Valletta MegaWays.
Valletta Streak feature - as its name suggests, this is a streak respin that can trigger following any winning spin. The successful symbol from the triggering spin lock in position and the reels spin again. If new matching symbols or wilds land, they’re also held and the process is repeated. These respins continue until no new matching symbol or wild hit. A payout calculation is then made.
Valletta Free Spins feature - the main bonus round is activated by landing 3, 4, 5 or 6 bonus symbols on the same spin. Your reward is 10, 12, 15 or 20 free spins. After every winning free spin in this round, the Valletta Streak feature becomes live. If you wish, you can pay 100 times your stake and buy the feature (known as the Bonus Bet feature). Either way, you can retrigger more free spins indefinitely.
This ticks all the usual boxes for a Blueprint Gaming slot game. The visuals are from the top drawer and the sweeping orchestral score gives the game an epic quality. The gameplay here matches the classy design too. The streak respins and the free spins round both offer plenty of potential. A word of the warning though. This is a very volatile game with top payouts of 10,000 times your stake on each spin/respin/free spin.
If you like slot games that combine plenty of backstory, classy design, features and high variance, then Valletta MegaWays delivers all of the above. I also suggest you try Black Knight II from WMS which also features rewarding knights.
