Megadeth, a slot which was created by Microgaming, is based on one of the most popular metal bands in the world. Megadeth has been around since 1983, formed back then by a former Metallica member. It’s a branded title, which uses photos of the rockers that are in this band, starting with Mustaine, and continuing with Chris Broderick, Shawn Drover and David Ellefson. The game’s hard rock inspiration means that it’s going to be a dark look that you’re getting from it. The game has extended wilds, free spins and scatters. With 40 lines arranged on its reels, it should provide the player with ample opportunity to win the top prize, but it is worth only $5,000.
Betting and Prizes
The game forces you to select all the lines and cover them with your bets, so you have to spend a minimum of $0.40 for each round. If you increase the value of the coin, up to $10, you can spend $400 in a single spin. Turn on the Mega Nudge feature, and you can win better prizes, but you also spend up to $800 this way.
The rewards mentioned by the game are nowhere near as impressive looking as the wagers. You can get 500 coins from the best possible combo, so you can win $5,000 from them.
Megadeth Slot Features
Mustaine, one of the original members of Megadeth, is seen in the symbol that can expand and take over an entire reel. This expanding wild will give you up to four wild symbols at the same time if it shows up, which is very useful in a game with 40 paylines. It will be part of all those lines, so if the rest of the requirements are met, you will get extra wins with its help. You shouldn’t expect it to replace a scatter symbol, that’s not something that a wild can do in any game.
The bonus symbol, with a skull on it, acts as the scatter that can bring you the free spins and apparently some kind of wheel of fortune with multiple levels, and chances to win even more money.
Theme & Design
The background image seems to show a stage, one where there are stage lights and a dark fog that surrounds the area. The reels are placed within metal borders, with metal chains that are holding them. The reels are taller than usual, with four symbols for each one, and they have symbols that show musical instruments or photos of the band’s members.
Megadeth slot will be a game that should attract fans of the band, and it even has some unusual features, but its payouts are unfortunately too low to make a lot of players try it out.
