Machina Megaways Slots
Machina Megaways from the developers at Relaxing and Kalamba Games is another slot to use the shape shifting MegaWays game engine Big Time Gaming. The slot has a science fiction theme and is played out over 6-reels and provides players with the opportunity to win in 46,656 different ways. The slot is complete with a bonus feature that rewards players with free spins as well as giving them the chance to collect wilds which can be used to upgrade other symbols and provide extra free spins. Playable from just 60p per spin and a maximum of £600 per spin this slot certainly caters for high rollers. The city is futuristic and would be at home with the world depicted in Blade Runner and is the perfect setting for this slot.
Players can expect to come across the usual lower value playing card symbols 9 through to Ace and these are joined by four male and four female characters. The highest paying among the standard symbol is the cyborg and this pays out x3.33 times the players stake when players land six on adjoining reels. The wild in Machina Megaways is the computer chip and this can be seen as 1, 2, 3 or 4 symbols high and can replace all the other symbols except for the bonus symbol to create winning combinations. The main feature players will find in Machina Megaways is the Hyper Bonus feature which is activate when players land 3, 4, 5 or 6 bonus symbols on the same spin and in addition to the 2, 5, 10 or 15 times their stake players are also rewarded with 10, 12, 15 or 18 free spins respectively.
Every time the player lands a wild in the feature it is collected in a meter that sits to the right of the reels, and when full players are awarded with two extra free spins added to the total and the lowest value human character morphs into the cyborg and the meter resets to zero.
Players that fill the meter again get more free spins and another symbol turns into the cyborg, it is possible for players to turn four of the higher value humans into cyborgs. For those who find they cannot trigger the feature but want to play the Hyper Bonus there is the option to buy their way into the feature and choose from 10 – 18 free spins. By doing this players boost their chances of landing one of the three jackpot prizes that Machina MegaWays has to offer.
There is a silver, gold and platinum jackpots available in Machina MegaWays and these are activated when players land 10, 12 or 16 cyborgs on the same spin. These jackpots pay out 20, 50 and 1,000 times the players stake respectively. There is no doubt that Machina MegaWays is impressive and makes an ideal addition to the existing MegaWays titles.
The sound and visuals are solid and work well together and although the range of additional features are not as good as you may find in similar slots the Hyper Bonus feature provides some great potential due to the symbol upgrades. When I trialled the slot, I managed to convert several symbols into cyborgs which resulting in me activated all three of the jackpots. I think Machina MegaWays provide a glimpse into slots of the future and I think a lot of people myself included will like what they see. Whilst this slot is more understated than some of the other MegaWays titles it runs efficiently and provides some really good fun with the chance to win big.
