The Montezuma Megaways slot game can be found at online casinos offering WMS Gaming software who are a wholly owned subsidiary of Scientific Gaming. WMS Gaming do not always publish their RTP or House Edge figures as standard. However, UKGC licensed operators now publish all game figures as standard and as such we can say that the House Edge of Montezuma Megaways is 3.95%.
Montezuma Megaways is a 6 reel slots game that is 3 symbols high. However, the number of symbols that make up a reel can change at random, with the potential for each reel to contain 7 symbols. The game does not use traditional paylines, instead it operates with a maximum of 117,649 different possible “megaways”, playing from left to right.
Avalanches – Every time you form a win the symbols involved will disappear, existing symbols will drop down into those places and new symbols will be added at the top of the reels. Win again and the process will repeat and will continue doing so as ling as you keep landing wins.
Wild – The “Temple” is the Wild symbol, which will substitute for all symbols other than the Scatters.
Scatters – The “Wheel” symbols are the Free Spins symbols. You need to land 3 of them anywhere on the reels to trigger the Free Spins feature.
Montezuma Respin Wheel Feature – Above the reels is a small reel that contains symbol. On any non-winning spin there is chance that the Wheel will spin and add those additional symbols to the reels, giving you another chance to win.
Free Spins – The number of Free Spins awarded will be dependant on a Spin of a wheel. Once that has been determined you will be taken to a new set of reels, but the Montezuma Respin Wheel will still be used. If you lad 2 or more Scatter symbols you will trigger the Montezuma Multipliers Wheel, which I will describe in more detail below. The Free Spins come with a win multiplier that begins at x1 the bet and increases by 1 with each winning combination.
Bonus Guarantee – The Free Spins come with a Bonus Guarantee, which means that you are guaranteed to walk away with at least x30 bet. If you fail to land this much you will have the amount need to take your winnings up to x30 the bet added.
Montezuma Multipliers Wheel – Landing 2 Scatter symbols in the Free Spins will give you a spin on the Montezuma Multipliers Wheel. The Wheel will give you a multiplier which will be applied to your winnings made during the feature. You will play the Montezuma Multipliers Wheel at the end of all your Free Spins.
