Get a look inside Britain’s Royal Mint with Big Time Gaming’s new slot, Royal Mint Megaways. Big Time Gaming did a great job taking a standard gold/jewel theme and turning it into something exciting and unique. The main action in Royal Mint Megaways is the Free Spins feature that awards unlimited free spins and an Unlimited Win Multiplier. Plus, there is also the Heartstopper Enhanced Free Spins feature, during which any wins/reactions increase the multiplier by 2. Check out Royal Mint Megaways at Big Time Gaming casinos, online and on mobile.
Royal Mint Megaways has 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways-to-win. Bets per spin range from $.10 to $20 and the RTP is a solid 96.68 percent. The reels are set in between two pillars of the Royal Mint, and each reel contains between 2 and 7 symbols. The more symbols per reel, the more Megaways. When 7 symbols land on each reel, the max 117,649 ways-to-win will be reached. The minimum ways-to-win is 324. Wins are scored when matching symbols land across adjacent reels, starting from reel 1.
This slot also features Cascading Reels, which means that the symbols that form a winning combo pop and disappear (called a reaction), allowing for new combinations to form.
Symbols include 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A royals, along with different-colored gems, the highest-paying of which awards 50x the stake when 6 land in combination. There is a shiny wild symbol, a Mint scatter, and a max base-game-win of nearly 1,880x the stake.
When 4 or more scatters land on the reels, the Free Spins feature is triggered. 4 scatters award 12 free spins, and each additional scatter awards 4 extra free spins. During this feature, there is an Unlimited Win Multiplier, which increases the multiplier by 1 every time a win/reaction occurs (with no limits!). There are also Free Spin symbols in this round, which can give players extra free spins when 3 or more land. The max win during the Free Spins feature is a whopping 41,300x the stake.
Heartstopper Enhanced Free Spins
When 3 scatters land on the reels, players get a gold bar. When they collect 40 gold bars, an extra scatter gets added on each spin. 4 or more scatters will trigger the Heartstopper Enhanced Free Spins feature, during which there is a 2x multiplier increase for every win/reaction.
This isn’t the first time Big Time Gaming has used the Megaways mechanic, but it’s not something we tire of easily. The wide range of ways-to-win, between 324 and 117,649, makes for a volatile slot, but the max payout of 41,300x the stake during the Free Spins feature can be worth the risk. With lots of colors and gold in the background, the slot is fun to look at and fun to play.
