Apollo Pays Megaways Slot (Big Time Gaming)

Apollo Pays Megaways Slot (Big Time Gaming)Big Time Gaming is one of the most renowned slot developers. The provider has had many successful products, including their popular Megaways mechanic.

Apollo Pays Megaways joins the list of their slot machines, and this new game promises a lot of goodies, that include high jackpot payouts.

The developer does not have a lot of Ancient Greece themed slots, especially on the Apollo god.

It is interesting to see how this turns out, so let’s review this slot machine:

Game Set-Up

Apollo Pays Megaways features the usual design commonly found on Megaways titles. This means that you will get 6 reels with up to 117,649 Megaways/ways to win.

The features are equally interesting, and on the list are things like Free spins bonus, Wilds, Free Spins Gamble, Respins, Hold and Win, Increasing Multiplier, and Sticky Symbols, among others.

Betting and Prizes

Real money betting is one of my favourite things, especially on Megaways slots. To play for real money on Apollo Pays Megaways, I needed at least $0.20 to get the reels spinning.  

The highest that the developer allows per spin is $20, which may look low, but considering that this is a Megaways title, you may end up with huge wins.

It is a long time since I came across a slot title offering jackpots as high as 100,000x the stake. This is what we are getting from Apollo Pays Megaways.

However, as usual with many Megaways slot machines, high volatility may be a huge hindrance to huge winnings. There is a fair RTP though, and Big Time Gaming has offered a 96.36% that comes in handy when dealing with such high variance.

Apollo Pays Megaways Slot Features

It is obvious that this is a Megaways engine title, and so, you get to work with the usual 6 reels, and a random number of symbols (each spin can get between 2 and 7 symbols).

The Apollo Wilds is one of the features here, and I got it on the middle reels. I love its work and it is what I used to replace regular symbols as I formed winning combos. The wild does not replace the scatter though.

Free spins are always an exciting section for me, and on this slot, there are different ways of accessing them.

One is by paying for them with your winnings (at least 100x the stake) during regular gaming. The other one is when you land 3+ scatters on the slot’s reels.

Depending on the number of scatters landed, you will be rewarded with between 10 to 16 free rounds. With an additional 3-6 scatters, Apollo Pays Megaways will offer you an extra 4-10 free spins.

With each trigger to the respins, the free spins multiplier increases by 1x, and there is no limit to this feature.

Theme & Design

This slot machine is inspired by Apollo and the Greek deities. Big Time Gaming is not very popular when it comes to exciting graphics. On this title, the only design that I find good looking is the Apollo Wild.

The other symbols are 9-A Royals (9 to A) and various gemstones.


The slot title may not offer an interesting design, but that doesn’t mean that Apollo Pays Megaways has nothing to offer.

It is a game with one of the greatest payout potentials, especially when you consider its humongous jackpot.

If you are brave enough to tackle its vicious volatility, this is a great option for every real money gamer.
