Some of us foxes are old enough to remember a time when a five-reel online slot seemed like a big deal. I'm not talking about meself obviously, but some of me mates who are starting to show more white than red around the chops.
Anyhow, the point I was tryin' to make was that ever since Big Time Gaming unleashed its Megaways mechanic on the world, more and more titles are popping up every day with the now familiar 6 or even 7 reel setup.
The latest we’ve come across is Twin Spin Megaways by NetEnt. And yes, if the name is familiar it’s ‘cause this is a remake of the hit Twin Spin slot by the same developer.
We've got the same symbols as in the original spinning on the reels, so you'll be seeing 9-A card ranks for the low-value ones, and cherries, bells, bars, sevens, and diamonds as the five premiums.
As usual with Megaways rereleases, the payout values have tumbled, with premiums now being worth only 1 to 10 times the stake for six of a kind. The reason for this is the cascading reels and multipliers that are a central feature to most Megaways slots, as well as the hugely increased possible ways to win, of course. There's also a Wild to help you form possible wins, and a Scatter, and you all know what that means!
The grid itself has six reels, and between two and seven symbols can land on each. This can produce up to 117,649 possible ways to win when all reels have their full suite of symbols.,
The betting range is a lot wider than on most Megaways slots, going from 0.10 all the way up to 200.00. Before you set your bet level, read the game rules and paytable. These can be found by clicking the menu icon. Wins are formed when three or more matching symbols land on adjacent reels, starting from the left. The number of ways to win active on a spin is displayed above the reels.
The Twin Spin feature is active on every spin. Two adjacent reels spin together and land the same symbols, giving players a much better chance at forming a win.
Lucky foxes who manage to hit a win will see all the symbols involved disappear from the reels, and new ones fall into the empty position, thanks to the cascade feature. This will continue as long as the wins keep coming.
Landing 5 Scatters awards 15 Free Spins. This might seem like a lot of Scatters for not so many spins, but there are a couple of very juicy bones, I mean bonuses, that become active in the Free Spins.
First, the reels are maxed out, landing seven symbols on every spin, so all 117,649 possible ways to win are active all the time. Second, any win formed with the help of a Wild will be multiplied by 2 x or 3 x. And that's not all me Foxy friends; any Scatter that lands during these spins will add an extra one to the total. And if five scatters land, the round is retriggered.
Twin Spin Megaways brings us all the fun of the original and more. The Megaways mechanic and all that it implies jacks up the action on what was already a fun slot. Try it out for yourself today here at Foxy Bingo.
