Ho ho ho, Wombat fans. Get those mince pies out again, will you?
Merry Megaways, designed by Iron Dog Studio, is getting all festive in a Christmas-themed slot. It uses the popular Megaways engine, which means plenty of Ways to Win. At minimum , there are x324 ways to win, up to a maximum of x200,704.
Not only that, but the reels use the tumbling mechanics, meaning you get multiple chances to win on each spin. After each win, the winning symbols are removed, and more tumble on the reels.
The designers have worked hard to ensure the slot looks great on a mobile compatible so you can play it on the move.
The big draw of this slot has to be the maximum win of x20,000. That’s big!
Merry Megaways should put you into a festive mood with its Christmas-adorned reels. It comes with six reels and two to seven rows, depending on how many ways to win are in play.
At the top of the reels, the number of winning ways you are playing on each spin are displayed clearly. The graphics work well in this game, with bright reels set against a snowy backdrop of snow-covered Christmas trees, and mountains and Santa to the side of the reels watching you play. There is calming music in the background, and on winning spins, the tempo speeds up to add an element of suspense.
An extra feature with this game is the horizontal reel above reels 2 – 5 which add additional win ways to the reels.
The game’s special symbols include the wild, a Christmas gift, which will replace all symbols except the scatters and appears on all reels except reel one. There are also Christmas crackers and Santa’s sack symbols in the free spins, but more about that below.
Merry Megaway’s minimum bet is 0.10, heading up to a maximum of 20.00. The volatility is high, so play sensibly.
The lower-value symbols on the reel include the A, K, J, Q and 10: these pay between 0.2x for 3-of-a-kind and 0.6x for 6-of-a-kind. Santa is the highest-paying symbol and the only one paying for two-of-a-kind. For six Santas on a pay-line, you win x5 your bet amount. The other higher-paying symbols are milk and cookies, reindeer, Christmas pudding, and elves.
The Merry Megaways slot has plenty of features to keep you entertained from the first spin:
Only one Christmas Cracker will appear on the horizontal reels. When they land and there is no win, they explode adjacent random symbols to offer more winning ways.
Free Spins feature
Four Santa sleigh scatters on the reels will activate the free spins feature, which can award six to eleven free spins. After each win, the multiplier will increase by x1 with no upper limit.
Santa’s Sack Enhanced Wild
This symbol will also only appear on the horizontal reel at the top. For one sack, two to four wilds are added to reels 2,3 and 4. Two sacks reward you with four to eight wilds across reels 2 to 5. In addition, you will get an extra two or four free spins, respectively.
Lucky Last Spin feature
If you form a win on your last free spin, you will receive one Lucky last spin. This will continue until no more wins are created.
Buy Free Spins
Lastly, if you don’t fancy waiting for the free spins feature, you can buy the feature. For x45, your bet you will get seven free spins. For x200, your bet you will receive between six to eleven free spins. This second more pricey option has a higher chance of triggering the extra features. This feature is not available in the UK
Merry Megaways is a fun and festive slot to play. Full of Christmas treats including a maximum win of x20,000, it’s a god play in any month, not only December.
The option to buy the feature is a handy add-on. We recommend you first give it a go in demo mode. Spin the reels at different bet amounts and test it all out.
