Slot Details

Merry Christmas Megaways is a cascading video slot with six dynamic reels, featuring 2 to 7 rows and 324 to 117,649 ways to win (more to that shortly). Pays are awarded for two to six matching symbols landing on adjacent reels from left to right only. You can turn the festive reels on desktop, mobile or tablet from 0.20 to 10 credits per spin (up to 15 credits based on operator choice). The game has high volatility with a slightly below-average RTP of 95.50%.

The visuals are, as expected, all about the Christmas theme with a decorated tree, Santas chair and stockings hanging from the fireplace. The frameless game window is topped by a fir wreath while baubles, sleigh, presents and Santa himself populate the reels. A holiday soundtrack provides the main audio to the gameplay.

The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 9 through to A, each held on a differently coloured bauble and awarding 0.8x to 1.75x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by bells, presents, sleighs and Santa himself. Hit six across the reels to win 2x to 50x your stake.

An icon marked with Christmas lights and the word itself is the wild symbol, appearing on the horizontal top reel only and substituting for all regular pay symbols. Santa’s sack filled with presents acts as the scatter while a Christmas cracker is the mystery symbol.

Merry Christmas Megaways Slot Features

Merry Christmas Megaways holds no festive surprises for those who played Gimme Gold! Megaways as it is an identical clone with the same features and payouts. In case you never tried your luck on it, here’s a rundown of what you can expect to find in these festive gaming stockings.

Before starting to play, you will need to decide whether you want to activate the Fortune Bet, which will increase your bet size by 50%, e.g. from 1 to 1.50 credits and in turn increases your chances to trigger the Free Spins features by adding more bonus scatters to the reel strips. However, symbol payouts and RTP remain unchanged.

At the core of the gameplay is the Megaways game engine with tumbling reels and reactive wins. Every spin sequence starts with symbols cascading onto the reels according to the random selection of ways, ranging from 324 to 117,649. The engine allows anything from 2 to 7 symbols on reels one and six as well as 1 to 6 symbols on reels two to five. In addition, you have a horizontal tracker above the centre reels where more symbols appear on every spin.

Hit two to six matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right and you have a winner. All symbols in a combo will explode and start a chain reaction. New ones will then drop into the empty spaces, potentially starting a chain of reactive wins. The process is repeated as long as new winning combinations land after a tumble. All pays are accumulated and credited once a spin sequence ends.

Merry Christmas Megaways Mystery Symbols

The Mystery Symbols appear at random in form of Christmas crackers They can land anywhere on any spin in the base game and free spins, including on the horizontal tracker. Once the reels come to a stop, all in view will explode and reveal a common pay symbol except scatters or wilds. The spin sequence continues as normal once the mystery symbols are unveiled.

Merry Christmas Megaways Free Spins

Having four bonus scatters in view by the time a spin sequence concludes will trigger 12 Free Spins with any extra scatter awarding +2 spins, up to a maximum of 80. During the feature, scatters appear in the horizontal tracker only, retriggering +5 or +10 free spins for three and four scatters respectively. The round is played in true Megaways fashion with the win multiplier starting at x1 and increasing by x1 after every winning cascade, no limits. The Mystery Symbols can also appear on any free spin.

Last but not least, should your balance drop below the current bet size but remains higher than zero, then the game will automatically offer you the Spin Chance. It gives you one chance to win one more spin at the current bet size. A pie chart indicates your odds to win the gamble. Click on PLAY to start the gamble and the marker will start spinning. It will be a winner if the marker ends in the green zone, followed by one more spin at the initial bet size. You can always click on NO to return back to the game screen with the remaining balance.

Final Verdict

Merry Christmas Megaways is not much of a festive surprise, to be honest. No new features or modifiers, which leaves the visuals and soundtrack fitting for the holiday period as the main attraction to play the clone instead of the original. RTP and win potential are unchanged with the latter peaking at 250,000 credits. Feliz Navidad!
