Before acquiring Red Tiger, NetEnt invested substantially in remaking its older games with an Asian focus. The merger, however, gave NetEnt access to the Megaways license, making all of their earlier slots immediately playable. Twin Spin Megaways, a safe copy of a huge hit, was the first to undergo the makeover and set the ball in motion. They are now focusing on improving their Divine Fortune jackpot slot machine. The 2017 edition included two fixed jackpots in addition to a progressive that may grow to six figures. The progressive jackpot is controversially removed from the Megaways version in favor of three smaller fixed jackpots.
NetEnt has maintained visual consistency with the original by using two female statues to support the reels and a hazy backdrop against which Pegasus flies. Other than the new jackpot system, not much has changed. Design layout is an evident example of a cause. Instead of a 5×3 grid, NetEnt’s Megaways slots include 6 reels onto which anywhere from 2-7 symbols might appear. With a possible maximum of 117,649 win combinations, the exact amount of symbols varies with each spin.
The redone version is playable on any device, and it has a betting range of 10 p/c to $100/€100 each spin. The jackpot may have decreased, but the return to player (RTP) has also decreased by 0.5 percentage points, to 96.06%. However, this is not a huge worry because, after the progressive contribution is eliminated, there may not be much of a difference anyhow. Despite the respin function helping to increase the frequency of wins, the low symbol values and high frequency of 3 symbol winners keep the volatility at medium.
The majority of symbols have also persisted. This implies that there are four premium symbols (birds, bulls, lions, and Medusa with snakes for hair) and five low-pay (10-A) royals. Combinations of six symbols are worth between 1.2 and 5 times the wager, which is rather low for Megaways. Except for Medusa, who just requires 2, you need to match at least three identical symbols to win. Pegasus’s regal mane serves as the wild symbol, appearing on all reels to sub for other symbols that pay out. As we’ll see, many mechanisms are set into motion once the wild makes an appearance.
Slot Functions, Megaways, and a Divine Fortune
The major change from the original is the jackpot, but other from that, it is very same. This consists of the Falling Wild Respin, the Wild on Wilds feature, and the free spins.
After winning bets have been paid out, the Falling Wild Respin bonus is activated whenever a wild symbol appears on the reels. Each time a Falling Wild falls off the reels, a respin is awarded. When the Falling Wild disappears, players get one more chance to spin.
The Wild on Wild function is triggered if a wild symbol replaces a Falling Wild. In this case, Pegasus engulfs the entire reel, turning it into a vertical row of wilds. Each respin causes these wilds to drop down the grid by one space. Additional wilds can arrive at any time during the sequence to provide additional respins.
Four, five, or six of the hand holding the lightning bolt in view triggers 10, 15, or 20 free games, respectively. Each additional scatter awards 5 free spins. When a Wild appears during a free game, the Wild on Wild feature is always activated.
Three more Bonus Win symbols become available during free games. If you acquire five Bronze Bonus Win symbols, five Silver Bonus Win symbols, or five Gold Bonus Win symbols, you win 10, 25, or 500 times your wager, respectively. It is possible to win many jackpots at once during the feature, as the collecting meter is reset to zero when the Bonus is won. No more free spins will be awarded.
