Get ready to watch the majestic bird rise to new heights on the slot from Roxor Gaming. Secrets of the Phoenix Megaways takes you on a mythological journey across six dynamic reels with cascading symbols, reactive wins, Phoenix Wilds and a free spins round with unlimited multipliers and retriggers that can lead to wins of up to 20,000 times your bet.
The game is currently live at online casinos operated on the Gamesys platform including Virgin Games, Rainbow Riches Casino, Starspins and Jackpot Joy Casino. At press time, we did not have confirmation as to whether it will be released globally at some point in future.
Secrets of the Phoenix Megaways is a cascading video with six dynamic reels, two to seven rows and 324 to 117,649 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to six matching symbols landing on adjacent reels from left to right only. Available on desktop, mobile and tablet, you can bet from 0.20 to 20 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 95.39%.
Loading the game will take you to a fantasy world with a stone temple holding the giant reel set. Floating islands against a blue sky and lush tropical greenery serve as the background to the carved game area that is populated by engraved gems and the mighty Phoenix. A suspenseful soundtrack with drum noises and cries of the mythological bird provide the main audio to the gameplay.
The pay symbols start at the low end with card royals from 9 through to A, awarding 0.8x to 1.75x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by engraved gem orbs in different colours – green, blue, orange and purple. Hit six across the reels to win 2x to 50x your stake. The Phoenix bird is the wild symbol substituting for all regular symbols while an icon with a Phoenix head serves as the scatter.
Secrets of the Phoenix Megaways Slot Features
Roxor Gaming debuted only recently with Tiki Totems Megaways and is following that up right away with their second Megaways title. It too is an upgrade to one of their existing game that has been among their most popular. Reason enough to take a closer look to see what modifiers and features they have included this time.
Core to the gameplay is the Megaways engine where the number of bet ways is randomly determined for every spin. Between 2 and 7 pay symbols will cascade onto reels one and six as well as 2 to 6 pay symbols onto reels two to five. Additionally, the game has an extra horizontal reel at the top of the game window with four positions, extending from reel two to five, where more symbols appear on every spin. Together, it provides a virtually unlimited number of reel and row combinations ranging from the minimum 324 ways up to the maximum of 117,649.
Legend has it that the Phoenix bird had the ability to rise repeatedly from the ashes every time it had been slain. Similarly, we will see the majestic bird appear when you clear all symbols from any number of reels from two to five in a single cascade. The Phoenix Wild will replace all symbols on the triggering reels with a wild for the following cascade, equal to the number of positions on the reels. More than one will be multiplied by each other to give you the overall multiplier.
Having four golden Phoenix scatters in view anywhere on the main reels at the end of a spin sequence will trigger 12 Free Spins. Any further scatter symbol landing at the same time will add +5 free spins to the tally. During the feature iced Phoenix scatters will appear the top reel only, awarding +5 spins for three and +10 spins for four scatters respectively. The key to scoring mega wins in the bonus round is the unlimited progressive win multiplier in the free spins. It starts at x1 and increases by x1 after every winning reaction, with no limit on the maximum. Plus, the Phoenix Wild can be activated too.
Secrets of the Phoenix Megaways is a decent follow-up for the first Megaways slot to emanate from the studios of Roxor Gaming. Yet again, they managed to include an unseen modifier, although it does the same as a standard expanding wild, basically covering the entire reel with wilds. Overall, solid gameplay throughout but for the rather low RTP value.
