The wombat says: Don’t you ever long for the good old days? When you could rest your ginger ale on a pokie and get rid of all your loose change while you were at it? Well Wombat fans, if you remember those classic one-armed bandits or old-skool fruities then you’re in for a treat here! Forget those high tech games like the Lake’s Five slot machine and Forbidden Throne for a second. Let’s get back to basics.
Yes, Mega Money Multiplier looks a traditional fruit machine but plays like a new fangled slot! Let’s see if this Microgaming release lives up to our expectations.
Look and Feel
This little slot throwback is all done up with a silver and gold frame on a backdrop of what looks like a red velvet curtain – very sophisticated!
The design is very simple as the are reels set up like an old slot machine, with a very minimal control pad under the reels.
The sound effects have also been kept pretty basic too; the odd clink of the fruity, some background chatter and the kerching of your wins. You’ll feel like your sitting on a comfy stool in Vegas in no time!
Mega Money Multiplier slot Game Play
Mega Money Multiplier is a 3 reel slot with 3 rows and 9 pay-lines, quite a few less than 5 reelers like the Lucky Links slot machine – also from Microgaming – but that’s the point. This game is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It looks innocent enough, but plays like a modern Muscle Slot!
Your symbols on the reels are made up of the traditional fruit machine icons red 7s, purple 7 and bar combos, plus the triple, double and single bars. Match x3 of them for a win, or land a mix of bars or any mix of 7s and you also receive a small payout.
If you are after expanded reels then go for something like the Monster Wins slot machine which has 4 rows of symbols. Mega Money is all about tradition!
There are also 4 different wild symbols in this slot, and each one has its own multiplier value. These little beauties will land on the middle reel and include; 2x, 3x, 4x and 5x icons. FYI: the 2x wild can appear anywhere on the screen. They also trigger off a nifty little feature that we will discuss in a bit more detail below.
Let’s start with the ‘Multiplier’ feature wombat fans. During base game wins the second reel can be nudged along to a random number multiplier. Should this happen the 1st and 3rd reel offers a re-spin. But you’ll scoop a ruddy ‘Mega Win’ if the 2x, 3x and 5x multipliers land on the middle reel all at once – and an even bigger win will occur if another multiplier pops up on the 1st or 3rd reels.
When 2x or more wild multipliers appearing on the 2nd reel simultaneously, you’ll be given a Re-Spin Bonus! Here, the middle reel will become sticky while the 1st and the 3rd reels respin. If you land a winning combo, your payout will be multiplied by the value of the multipliers on the second reel – which is nice little touch.
Classic slots have been making a comeback recently (in case you haven’t noticed), and Mega Money Multiplier is a nice mix of the old and new guaranteed to appeal to all you slot purists out there. Although there are only 3 reels and 9 paylines on offer, there’s plenty of lucrative money-making action to be had on the reels thanks to the re-spins and wild multipliers. Definitely one worth checking out.
