Christmas Megaways Slot (Iron Dog)
Iron Dog has not been left out as developers rush to create 2020 Christmas-themed slot machines.
However, the developer has opted for the Megaways concept. The slot goes by the name Christmas Megaways, and it features high volatility but it is accompanied by massive wins.
As a Megaways title, this slot is likely going to offer 6 reels and a possibility of up to 117,649 ways to win.
In addition to its many ways to win, Iron Dog has given the Christmas Megaways slot additional features like cascading reels, wild multipliers(x8), and unlimited multipliers in the free spins.
Betting and Prizes
You will need at least 20 coins to place a wager on Christmas Megaways. From the design of the slot, this is simply to say that the bets will cost at least $0.20 per spin. The highest amount that you can use per spin is $20.
Given the huge potential of combos, wins can get to as high as 25x the stake before the unlimited free spins multipliers come in, however, once they do, you will have an opportunity to walk away with as much as 40,000x the stake.
The RTP of 96.20% is decent for this type of slot.
Christmas Megaways Slot Features
Slots that use the Megaways concept usually come with varying number of symbols on the reels.
The symbols are random, and one reel can get 2 and another one 7. In total, you will likely get between a few hundred, and up to 117,649 symbols.
When you form a win, the Cascading Reels will be triggered, and they will remove the winning symbols and replace them with new ones. This process will go on until there are no more wins.
I was happy to work with some multiplier wilds, but these are only available in the base game, on the 5th reel.
At most, you will get 3 wild multipliers, with each offering a win boost of 2x. When the three are combined, you will end up with up to 8x multipliers.
The multiple cascading reels will assist you to get to the free spins. You will need between 4 to 7 cascades, which will give you 8 to 14 free spins. With an extra 4+ cascades, you will be able to retrigger the free spins.
It is during the free spins that you will get to work with an increasing multiplier. Each time you trigger a cascading reel, the multiplier will go up by 1x. The good news is that there is no limit to how high this can increase.
Theme & Design
The traditional Christmas themed is what has gone into making this title, and in the background, we can see snow-covered surroundings.
On the dark blue reels are some traditional symbols that blend well with the theme.
These symbols include a Wild logo, candles, stockings, wrapped gifts, baubles, and the usual low-value Royals.
Christmas Megaways will brighten your winter holidays, and I particularly love the Megaways mechanic concept.
The RTP is fair, and so are the payouts. Although highly volatile, its a slot suitable to all levels of players, and especially those that enjoy the Megaways concept.
