Are you ready to find out what’s hiding inside the walls of iSoftBet’s latest release? Let me give you a hint, it’s 1, 2, 3, 4 times bigger than most games!
Get Ready for Action
Majestic Megaways Extreme 4 is called Megaways for a reason… wow! It’s not often you are encountered with this many reels and at first glance, it honestly felt a bit overwhelming as it’s far from your normal slot look.
The game works with 4 sets of reels, spinning at the same time, leaving players with as many as a mindblowing 470,596 ways of winning.
Meet Your Expectations
Taking a quick look behind the curtain, there is an RTP of 96.00%, a medium/high volatility and a 20,000x max multiplier in play.
The latest creation to come out of iSoftBet uses cascading wins and with this many ways of winning you would think it would be a free flow of wins coming at you. Or at least so I thought.
Instead, my experience turned into something slow, pretty boring and not at all what I had hoped for. A few small wins here and there but nothing fun whatsoever. As a matter of fact, I was really close to shutting it down after what felt like an endless amount of spins without any luck.
A Buy Feature Is in the Building
Having spotted the Buy feature quietly seeking your acknowledgement, I figured maybe this is the solution to my problems, like so many times before.
Nope, no luck there as the game was asking for too much money for my poor account. The fact that there were two options annoyed me even more since I couldn’t really afford either of them.
Free Spins or Majestic Bet
If your account is looking better than mine, coughing up the 75x your bet might be a good option. That’s the asking price to get Free Spins.
Majestic Bet Extreme Spins
This version of spin will maximize your options and is guaranteed to trigger Majestic Megaways Extreme Spins (more on that later).
In order to activate this option, you are looking at a cost of 300x your bet.
One Last Spin
Getting tired of staring at the many but tiny symbols, I gave myself a deadline of 10 more spins before shutting it down and cutting my losses.
Three spins left… two spins left… boom! What’s this? Somehow I managed to score the necessary 4 bonus symbols in my top right corner. Finally!
You can get as much as 27 Free Spins or, if you’re very lucky, as many as 15 Majestic Megaways Extreme Spins.
What are Majestic Megaways Extreme Spins?
Basically they are the piece de resistance and the big kahuna of spins. This is when up to 4 reel sets spin at the same time with up to 470,596 (!) megaways.
In the beginning, only one of the reel sets is working while the other 3 are locked. As you spin along, diamonds can appear anywhere on the reels. The diamonds will be collected and added up.
When you collect the diamonds, this is what happens:
- 5 Diamonds will unlock a second reel set and trigger 5 extra Free Spins
- 15 Diamonds unlocks the third reel set and will also give you an extra 5 spins
- 30 Diamonds unlocks the last reel set as well as gives you 5 extra spins
As you can see, this is what you want!
12 Free Spins is the fewest you can get unfortunately
A Sad Win-Win This Time
The least amount of Free Spins you can get via the spin is 12. How many did I get? You guessed it – 12! I know it’s a win-win but it’s always a bit annoying when you get the lowest possible reward.
Still, I was happy to at least see what the bonus round is all about in this game.
Back to Normal
The fact that the bonus round is played on a “normal” grid was a nice surprise and I definitely felt more comfortable looking at the screen than in the base game.
Free Spins are played on a single reel set with up to 117,649 megaways so fingers crossed.
Give Me a Boost Please
After each and every cascading win, your multiplier will get a +1 boost. So, if you manage to scrape together a few nice wins you can watch that bad boy grow right in front of you.
Big Win – There it is
I didn’t see a lot of wins during my first 11 Free Spins but on the very last attempt, iSoftBet was kind enough to grant me a Big Win of 158.40 uBTC. This immediately made me feel better so thank you!
A total of 208.20 uBTC was the result after 12 Free Spins and on a 10 uBTC bet, I have to be pleased with that.
I know it’s not reality but I think you should always get a shot at the bonus round if you play, let’s say more than 50 spins. It’s only fair, don’t you think? It may not be realistic of course but it sure would make playing even more fun.
Is Majestic Megaways Extreme 4 a Hit or Miss?
Great question. First of all, you can play the game at Oshi.io, 7Bit Casino, Rocketpot and BitStarz.
Before starting the game my expectations were high and I was looking forward to playing. When you are then presented with 4 different reel sets and a ton of symbols, you immediately sense its potential.
The longer I played, the more disappointed I became. It all had to do with seeing the potential but not being able to reap the benefits of it due to the lack of bigger wins or bonus rounds.
Like I mentioned above, I was close to shutting it all down but in the last second, I was greeted by 4 scatters and sent to the bonus round.
Free Spins did manage to uplift my spirit so after it was all said and done, I had a good time. Not a great time but good.
How to Turn Things Around
I am sure that the thing that could’ve turned it into a fantastic experience would be if I got the chance to experience the Majestic Megaways Extreme Spins. They seem like a lot of fun!
Either way, I still believe in the game’s potential and with some luck, I think this could be a very good game.
