If it’s a game with a retro feel that you are looking to play, then look no further than ‘Mega Money Multiplier’ from Microgaming. You might just get a bit peckish though, because even though this is a three-reel game, there’s no fruit in sight but there are great chances to get some good winning combinations particularly if those multipliers start making appearances.
The look of this game is totally retro but with a few surprises along the way as it nods its head to the current day. With this game, you simply get three reels and nine pay-lines, which is a lot more (well around eight more) than this reviewer used to play with when down the local amusement arcade or pub playing the slot games.
The three reels and same number of reels dominate the left-hand side of the screen. The background is all red and looks very classy, a bit like the cloth put on a casino table with exquisite designs. On the right-hand side of the screen is the name of the game. ‘Mega Money Multiplier’ has an up-tempo soundtrack which isn’t too bad but can be muted if you really don’t want to hear it any longer. You won’t want to mute it when the respin feature comes along that is for sure. This is a medium variance game so there will be some times when the wins don’t come along. If that is the case, keep an eye on your budget and be patient until those wins do start to materialize.
The game has a High Definition (HD) look to it and looks great when you are playing it on your mobile devices. The symbols in this slot are comprised of single bar, double bar, triple bar, red 7, purple 7 and a bar with a purple 7 through it. The fruit symbols must have had a day off perhaps. The symbols you want to keep an eye out for though are the multipliers. There are 2x, 3x and 5x multipliers which appear on the middle reel only but the big wins come when more than one turns up. That can see you getting a multiplier of up to 10x. When you get a winning combination there’s some entertaining animation as again the game shows its hybrid behaviour of old-time/new-age slot.
Those nine pay-lines are a fixed number so you have no choice but to play them on each spin of the reels. You also have to work out your stake for each spin and the minimum cost of playing is 0.15 and the maximum 150. That’s a wide range so it will suit those who like to play for a bit of fun and others who are out to win big cash prizes.
It’s easy to set your stake in this game using the control buttons underneath the reels. Also, it’s possible to set an autoplay which can be as many as fifty automated spins of the reels. That’s handy if you want a break from the screen or just get fed up of having to keep pressing the spin button.
On any base game spin, you need to be keeping an eye on that second reel for the wild multiplier feature. Those multiplier symbols are wild too, though you will notice a lack of scatter symbols in this slot. If the second reel spins and ends with two wild multiplier symbols on the middle reel, then this re-triggers the re-spin. The second reel is locked but that free re-spin sees the first and third reels spin again and if that results in any wins they are doubled. This can result in some very large wins.
Before you start playing this game, make sure you do some homework. That means taking a good look through the paytable to find out lots more information about the game. Also have some free games to see everything in all its glorious action and that will really help you when it comes to playing for real.
If you like playing retro style games that add a bit of the 21st century to its gameplay, you can also try ‘Ice King’ from Gamesys. That has nine pay-lines on a 3×3 grid but offers more free spins than this slot. Also try out ‘Jackpotz’ from Openbet and that slot also offers its players free spins and with each one you are guaranteed a win.
If you are looking for some big wins then playing this slot from Microgaming is a great idea. It has a classy retro look but also uses some of the features that we are used to seeing in modern-day games. The multipliers can certainly get you some good wins, though you do have to be a bit patient before they come along. It’s definitely recommended though.
