Mega Flip from Relax Gaming is a retro dance themed slot that features multipliers, respins, free spins, and a maximum win of 5,495x the stake. The game is reminiscent of the classic fruit machine with cherries, plums, 7s etc., but the reel set-up and features are much more sleek and modern. The Mega Flip of the title refers to the Free Spins round, when the number of symbols on the reels flip horizontally and create many more winning opportunities. Check it out at Relax Gaming casinos, online and on mobile.
Mega Flip is made up of 18 individual reels and 108 paylines. The theme is classic but the look is unique, with the reel set up taking the format of 2-2-3-3-4-4. Bets range from 20p to £100 per spin, the RTP is 96.2%, and the game is highly volatile.
Symbols include lower-paying plums, cherries, and oranges, while higher-paying symbols include bells, four-leaf clovers, stars, and 7s. There are no wilds in this game, which means the main action comes from the diamond scatter.
The Respins feature can be triggered randomly when a win is scored. During this feature, winning symbols remain locked in place and players continue to get respins as new winning symbols land. If a reel gets filled with winning symbols, a multiplier is activated. However, the reels must get filled up with winning symbols in sequential order, starting with 1. This means that if reels 2, 3, and 4 are filled but 1 isn’t, players don’t get the multiplier. The multiplier can go up to 7x.
When 3 or more diamond scatters land during the base game, the Free Spins round is triggered. 3 diamonds reward 8 free spins and each additional diamond awards 2 more. During this round, the reel area gets flipped horizontally so that the hit rate is increased - this is the Mega Flip. Respins are active during this round, which means the reel that had the 3 or more diamonds gets locked in place. During Free Spins, the multiplier feature doesn’t need to be activated in sequential order.
The Free Spins feature can be retriggered when 3 or more diamonds land on the reels. The retrigger awards only 4 free spins and an extra 2 spins for each additional diamond. For every retrigger, the multipliers get increased by 1.
Relax Gaming has combined 3 components - a classic slot, retro dance scene, and modern features - to create an enjoyable game. The multipliers can boost wins up to 7x but during the base game it can be frustrating to make them go in sequential order. The respins and free spins allow for some big wins, with 5,495x the stake as the maximum payout per spin.
