You only have to read the slot title, Mega Bars Big Hit Jackpot King, and it gets you excited as a player. Spinning the reels to win big jackpots is what everyone aims to do, and it’s possible to win millions in this Blueprint Gaming release, so this is a slot that’s a surefire hit.
Instead of going down the route of making a modern slot and then attaching several progressive jackpots, Blueprint Gaming take a different approach in this five-reeled game that features ten paylines. Mega Bars is a throwback to the origins of slot gaming, when things were a lot more straightforward to get to grips with.
Sometimes, it’s good to roll back the years and enjoy a classic experience, especially where gaming is concerned. And let’s face it; there are no compromises made because of the retro approach by Blueprint Gaming, with big prizes and bonus features included in this slot which is playable from as little as 0.10 per spin.
Some people may think or believe that slot gaming’s origins lie in fruit machines, but they don’t. Slot games were around long before fruit machines, which are effectively slots where fruit appears on the reels, came into existence. And in Mega Bars, it’s a slot game in its earliest form that is used as the source of inspiration.
The symbols that players will see on the reels are simple – X, O, BAR and Free Spins, that’s it. In some ways, you could say it’s too basic of an offering, but this is authentic in terms of what you’d see when spinning the reels of a slot machine decades ago. It’s good to see that there is the free spins icon included, as this means that the game isn’t too basic and that there will be at least one feature to enjoy.
Like everything in Mega Bars, triggering the free spins feature is incredibly straightforward. Players will need to see three free spins icons on the same payline to gain access to what is the slot’s only feature.
And, the great news to add to that is that while playing through the free rounds granted by the game, it’s possible to re-trigger the feature as many times as a player likes but to keep doing so will require another three free spins symbols to appear on the same payline.
There are several progressive jackpots included in Mega Bars, and they are – Royal, Regal and Jackpot King Deluxe. Of course, everyone wants to win the latter, as it’s the top prize and the pot can be worth into the millions. But the other two progressive jackpots – Royal and Regal – can be worth thousands and tens of thousands, respectively, so they’re also great to have in play.
Winning a progressive jackpot can happen at random at the conclusion of any spin in both the base game and the free spins feature.
Two things stand out in Mega Bars by Blueprint Gaming – it’s a retro slot with massive prizes to win. And, for a lot of slot gamers, that will be two giant ticks in the box, especially having the chance to win progressive jackpots worth thousands at a minimum and potentially into the millions.
