Explosion of colour
The visuals in Montezuma Megaways are a riot of colour. Set against a lush jungle backdrop, the orange reels include A to J royals as well as a dragon emblem, a mask, a headdress, a hawk and an Aztec princess. The warrior is comfortably the best paying symbol. Land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 of these in combination and you’ll receive a payout equal to 1.5, 2.5, 3.5, 5 or 50 times your total stake. The pyramid is the wild. This substitutes for everything apart from the scatter.
As this is a Megaways slot, the number of symbols on each of the 6 reels changes with each spin. So too does the number of active Megaways. If they reach their full potential, you’ll have 117,649 ways to create a winner. After you land a winning combination, the successful symbols are removed and a cascade takes place. Known as the Cascading Reels feature, these cascades keep on coming as long as a new winner is formed.
Montezuma respin wheel
After a losing spin, you could trigger the Montezuma Respin Wheel feature – if you do, the Montezuma respin wheel above the reels whir into life. This triggers at random and awards a respin to give you another chance of winning.
Free spins with plenty of multipliers
The main feature, the Free Spins Bonus feature, is triggered by landing 3 or more scatters on the same spin. The number of free spins is decided by a spin of a wheel – it can be as high as 25. Each cascading reels win during the free spins increases a multiplier by 1x in the Unlimited Win Multiplier feature.
You’ll also get a spin of the wheel in the Montezuma Multipliers feature if you land 2 or more scatters. The amount you land here is added to the starting 1x multiplier which is in play during the free spins – a multiplier up to 100x can be added to your current multiplier!
The Montezuma Respin Wheel feature is active during the bonus round. Furthermore, triggering the Montezuma Multipliers feature on your last free spin activates the Mega Win Multiplier feature – a multiplier as high as 25x will be applied to the total winnings from the whole Free Spins Bonus feature!
Finally, you’re guaranteed to win a prize of at least 30 times your stake each time you trigger the free spins with the Bonus Guarantee feature – this is also found in other WMS slots.
Entertaining Megaways slot
This Montezuma Megaways adventure is certainly a playable one, especially if you like the Megaways game engine. The colourful design is decent enough without being quite from the top drawer. There are some extras goodies on top of the Megaways mechanic that make this game worth considering.
The Free Spins Bonus feature is where the best options arise thanks to the expanding multipliers – medium to high variance, you can pocket 12,500 x your stake on every free spin. With an RTP of 95.92%, Montezuma Megaways is one to add to your playing rotation.
