The Wombat says: Grab your loincloths and wooden clubs as we step back in time to the Ice Age in 1 Million Megaways BC slot from Iron Dog Studio.
Neanderthal wins are the aim of the game in this Megaways release that comes with a dinosaur-sized 1,058,841 ways to win and a mind-blowing top prize of 45,000x your bet. We’re in a different category to pay-line games like the Faces of Freya slot from Play’n GO.
Look and Feel
Set on a snowy mountain backdrop, your frosty reels sit inside a primitive village with hieroglyphics painted on the reddish caves and a layer of ice covering everything.
As for the soundtrack, expect ice crackling as the symbols land and a hypnotic drum beat to accompany your spins. It’s a fun theme in this Wombat’s humble opinion.
1 Million Megaways BC slot Game Play
1 Million Megaways BC slot has 6 reels and 6 rows with 117,649 Ways to Win. Well , we have seen 6 before on games like the Indi slot from Gamevy. But hang on, there’s more.
But this increases up to 9 reels with 1,058,841 ways to win. Wow. And there was me playing Forgotten Island Megaways and trying to get my head around the numbers on that game.
Let us explain; you have 6 reels to start with, with a varying number of positions and ways to win with at least 2 and at most 7 symbols. But, trigger the bonus round as this adds 2 extra reels, upping the ways to win to 1,058,841.
Bets start at 0.20 coins and go up to a maximum of 100.00 coins per spin.
This game comes with a tumble mechanism ( or cascade drops as you might know them). This means whenever there is a winning combination, the symbols explode and new ones drop in from above. If these brand spanking new symbols form a win, they will also disappear and the same thing happens again and again until no more wins are made.
There is also a chunky multiplier at play here. Look to the left of the reels and you will see a handy fire-pit gauge that counts up your cascades.
Starting at 1x and increasing to 2x after the first tumble, each successive tumble increases the multiplier by 2x, up to a maximum of 8x. When there are no more wins, the multiplier resets.
The prehistoric reel icons are made up of sabre tooth tigers, woolly mammoths, primordial deer, and 2 buff -looking cave people in leopard skin, while the A, K, Q, J and 10 are the low-paying symbols.
The wild symbol is a block of ice and it will substitute for all other symbols n apart from sticky wilds. It appears on all reels apart from reel 1.
There is no Scatter symbol in this slot. Strange but true…
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Hit 4 consecutive tumbles, and you will set off the Bonus giving you 8 Free Spins. Your extra goes will be played out on another set of reels at night.
Next, the reel set will open up and a Mammoth Reel will appear in the middle of the screen. This reel can hold up to 9 symbols, which is why we go from 117.649 to 1.058.841 ways to win!
The tumbles will be continue to be active in this round, increasing the win multiplier on consecutive drops, but it won’t reset on a winless spin – which means there’s heaps of potential for Multiplier Madness!
Every time you get a 7 symbol reel (or more), that reel itself will lock, and add a x1 multiplier, while the other reels keep spinning to create better winning combos for you.
But there’s more! If the Mammoth reel hits its maximum of 9 symbols, then it also locks and will dish out 5 more Free Spins for you.
Sticky wilds can also land on the Mammoth Reel once it’s locked in place. These work like the standard wild symbol, but they’ll stay in place for the rest of the bonus. It’s possible to cover this reel with 9 sticky wilds.
It might be set in the Ice Age, but this game there’s nothing cold about 1 Million Megaways BC slot. In fact, you’ll be lighting fires everywhere in this mega volatile game! It’s all about the Free Spins which means the base game can seem a little bit lacking – still, that’s what we’ve come to expect from Megaways slots.
There’s some unique gameplay on offer and in our professional opinion it’s a cracking Megaways title. Well done Iron Dog Studio!
