Inspired Entertainment wishes its players a Merry Christmas with the launch of its festive title, Merry Christmas Megaways.
Merry Christmas Megaways is a 6×2-7, 117,649-payline video slot that comes with a maximum win potential of up to x25,000 the bet.
95.5 per cent
Santa, the highest value symbol, pays out when two or more land, whereas the others need at least three to do so. After Santa comes sleighs, gifts, and bells, then a selection of A-9 covered tree decorations. A line of six low pays is worth x0.8 to x1.75 the bet, while a non-royal six of a kind winning combination gets you x2 to x50 the stake.
Moving onto special symbols, appearing only on the extra top reel is the wild symbol, capable of replacing any other symbol in the game except the bonus tile.
Lastly, mystery symbols can randomly be delivered to the reels on any spin. When they land, they each transform to reveal the same paying symbol type.
The title includes features such as cascading wins, free spins and a spin chance.
In the game, every winning combination is part of a cascade sequence. Here, winning symbols disappear from the grid, then are replaced by new symbols falling down from above on the main reels or from the right on the extra reel. As long as new wins form, cascades continue to trigger.
Moving onto free spins, this feature is activated by landing four or more scatter symbols, awarding 12 spins for four and two additional spins for each extra triggering scatter.
During the feature, each winning cascade increases the unlimited win multiplier by one. Furthermore, the bonus is extended by five or 10 free spins when three or four scatters land in view, up to a maximum of 80.
Finally, if the player’s balance falls below the cost of the current spin, players are offered a Spin Chance. If accepted, a pointer spins on a wheel, granting one extra spin when landing on green. However, if it lands on red, the remaining balance is forfeit.
