There will be a load roar greeting you on the latest slot creation from Blueprint Gaming, taking you back to the era of the giant mammoth. Relive the Stone Age on the reels of Primal Megaways with mystery symbols and a free spins round with unlimited retriggers and extra wild win multipliers as well as a feature win guarantee for the free spins. Brace for an earthshattering stampede as you score mega wins of up to 50,000 times your stake.
Primal is a video slot with six reels and up to 46,656 ways to win, using the patented Megaways game engine, which Blueprint licensed from Big Time Gaming in early 2018. On each spin, the game will reveal randomly two to six symbols on each reel, creating anything from 64 to 46,656 ways to win. Pays are awarded for adjacent symbols.
Stake sizes range from 0.20 to 5.00 credits. That is a rather low maximum bet but well sufficient considering the win potential. The TRTP of this high variance game is set at 96.76%. Autoplay will let you choose 10 to 100 consecutive spins without interruption.
Graphics and Visuals
Travel back to the Palaeolithic age when fierce beasts were ruling the world, with the woolly mammoth being the largest and most powerful. Blueprint Gaming created very authentic visuals and graphics for this slot. The background is an artistic take of the lush forests from that era. The pay symbols are intricate tiles with a patina that make them look well-aged. A dramatic soundtrack completes a stunning slot.
All pay symbols can appear super stacked, except the wild and scatter symbols. They start off with the usual 10s to As suits and are followed in ascending order by goat wolves, warthogs, rhinos, sabretooth tigers and the mammoth. Hitting six matching symbols across the six reels will pay between 0.50 to 50 times your stake. Wild symbols are the paw of a sabretooth tiger, appearing on reels two to six only. Mystery symbols are depicting an early homo sapiens cave with a camp fire. Scatter are a mammoth’s skull with the word “bonus” at the bottom.
Mystery Symbol Pays
Mystery symbol can appear on all reels on any spin in the base game and free spins. They will reveal one common symbol, including the top paying symbol. However, they cannot contain wild or scatter symbols.
Primal Bonus with Unlimited Retriggers
Three to six scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger the bonus round with 10 to 30 free spins and wild win multipliers. Two to six scatters during the free spins will add five to 25 extra free spins on each occurence. The wild will reveal a win multiplier on each winning spin, including when it is not part of the win combination.
- 3 scatters award 10 free spins with 2x or 3x wild multipliers
- 4 scatters award 15 free spins with 2x, 3x or 4x wild multipliers
- 5 scatters award 20 free spins with 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x wild multipliers
- 6 scatters award 30 free spins with 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 6x wild multipliers
Only one wild can land on reels two to six. Each wild will randomly reveal a multiplier when a winning combination lands on a free spin. Wilds will be multiplied with each other. This can potentially lead to maximum win multipliers from 243x when three scatters triggered the round up to a staggering 7,776x when the free spins were triggered with six scatters. No doubt the best moment to hit those monster wins on Primal Megaways.
For the first time, Blueprint included a feature guarantee on one of its slots. Any free spins round paying no more than 10 times the stake will be automatically retriggered for a second chance to score bigger wins.
A Roaring Verdict
We just had a rare “wow” moment reviewing Primal Megaways. It is probably the slot that separates itself most from the usual Megaways games we have seen so far from Blueprint Gaming and Big Time Gaming. It certainly looks like the Megaways licensing deal has reinvigorated the creative juices at Blueprint. Overall, a superb slot with high volatility but also sky-high win potential.
