Moriarty Megaways Slot (iSoftBet)
Many slot machines in this genre focus primarily on the old Sherlock Holmes. However, this new title by iSoftBet offers an entirely new concept, where we get to see the detective’s arch-enemy (Professor Moriarty) as the main character.
Moriarty Megaways borrows from the Big Time Gaming Megaways mechanism, and with it, the slot is able to deliver very many winning combos.
Moriarty Megaways offers a 6 reels design, with up to 117,649 Megaways.
There are some notable features on this title, and they include wilds (regular and special versions), scatters, special Moriarty, free spins, and Watson reels among others.
Betting and Prizes
$0.20 is the least amount that you can be allowed to put per spin, while the highest amount per single spin is $20.
The slot has high payout potential, and as much as 10,000x the stake ($200,000) is possible.
As expected, it’s a relatively high volatility slot but the average RTP of 96% is good at taming the risk.
Moriarty Megaways Slot Features
The title offers a standard Megaways design, whereby the developer has used 6 regular reels, and a horizontal reel that appears at the top of the 2nd to the 5th columns.
This is how you get to enjoy between 324 and 117,649 Megaways per round. The number is random, which means that some spins will have more than others, but between 2 and 7 symbols.
Consecutive matching symbols will help form wins, which will then allow for the triggering of a Cascade.
With the cascades, winning symbols are removed, and replaced with new ones.
The Pocket Watch wild is among the available features, and you can use it as a substitute for the regular symbols.
Sherlock Max Megaways is a random feature, and with its assistance, you are guaranteed a maximum number of ways to win. This is in addition to an increasing multiplier.
Watson Mystery Symbols appears randomly, and it the feature that will add mystery symbols. This will guarantee a win for the particular spin, not to forget an increasing multiplier.
With the bonus (scatters) feature appearing 3+ times, the slot will reward you with between 15 and 30 free spins.
While in the free spin mode, cascades will form, and each time, the multiplier will increase by1x. The good part is that the multiplier has got no limit.
Theme & Design
This slot is quite similar to the Twisted Tales series, ad a lot of its inspiration comes from Sherlock Holmes, together with Dr Watson, who is on a mission to unravel a case.
Moriarty is the villain and the actual star of this game. The design is awesome, and so are the graphics.
A Pocket Watch is what serves as the wild, and other symbols include a scatter, icons of Sherlock and Dr Watson, Moriarty, his ring, several pieces of chess, and some Royals.
Moriarty Megaways is a great slot machine that delivers a lot of unique graphics, and special features.
Personally, I loved every gaming session here, but one thing that I noticed about the payouts is that they are quite low, and nowhere close to what I have seen on other Megaways titles.
However, it is an interesting slot, especially if you love games that offer the Megaways concept, but due to its high volatility, it is only suitable for more experienced gamers.
