The Megadeth slots game was produced by the Leander slots design company and is leased out by casinos using many different primary casino platforms. As a standard Leander do not include the house edge information of their slots games, however some casino do list this information in the game help files. It is not clear whether their games are configurable and as such you should treat the information in this review as a guideline only when playing at a casino that does not explicitly state the house edge they use.
Amongst the titans of thrash metal, Megadeth are unquestionably one of the most powerful and influential forces of the last 20 years and have helped forge an entire genre of music. Now you can experience some of the bands greatest hits in slots game form.
The Megadeth game has 5 reels, 40 paylines and you can bet up to three coins on the payline.
The ‘Dave Mustaine’ symbol is wild and expands to cover the whole of any reel it lands on.
There are two bonus features when playing Megadeth and the first bonus feature is activated when you turn on the ‘Mega Nudge’. When you do this your bet will be doubled. With this feature activated you will automatically receive at the end of each spin 3 either up or down nudges (moves of one position) to share between reels 2 and 4. This will be played out automatically to award you the best possible win.
The second bonus feature is activated when you receive the ‘Vic Rattlehead’ bonus symbol anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing a wheel divided into 7 sections. Each section has a prize either a multiplier of your initiating bet, a number of complimentary spins or the Head Crusher feature alongside a red symbol – ends the bonus feature – or a green symbol – allows you to play another round. You can play up to three rounds and each round the prizes increase. If you land on a complimentary spins prize you are automatically taken to the reels to play them out. During the complimentary spins the Dave Mustaine wild symbol alters and rather than expanding to cover the reel it lands on, when you receive it it locks in position for the remainder of the complimentary spins. If you land on the Head Crusher feature you are automatically awarded the maximum multiplier to your initiating bet and taken to a new screen showing 16 prisoners with bags over their heads. Click on the prisoners one at a time to reveal them. Each male prisoner reduces your prize. When you find a female prisoner you are awarded the remaining prize and the bonus feature ends.
Putting aside the kick ass tunes and the connection to an iconic metal band, the Megadeth slots game is simply a fantastic game. Without the Mega Nudge feature the house edge is 5% - average for the industry - but when you turn the Mega Nudge feature on the house edge drops to a fantastic 3% - far lower than the industry average. Then when you add in some fantastically original and most importantly fun bonus feature and this all adds up to one of the best slots games on the market, and certainly one of the best value for money slots games you’ll ever find!
