Solar Queen Megaways Slot (Playson)
Solar Queen Megaways is the latest that we are seeing from Playson. This time around, the developer has gone with a Megaways concept, and we get to visit and explore Ancient Egypt.
I’m happy to see the creativity here, as Playson has taken a relatively common theme and given it a magic touch.
Here are more details about Solar Megaways:
As a Megaways-powered slot game, I knew that I was in for a treat, and sure enough, Playson has included all the goodies that you would expect from such a title.
Solar Queen Megaways offers up to 7,776 ways to win, and you get 6 rows of symbols, on its 5 reels. There is potential to get as many as 117649 ways to win. Features include the Scatter, Wilds, and free spins among others.
Betting and Prizes
As usual with many slots in the Megaways genre, this title allows bet of between $0.20 and $100 per spin.
There is always great potential in these types of games, but I was a little disappointed by the low potential here. The highest that you can get from the slot is 3874xs the stake, and the RTP of 95.84% does not make things better.
Solar Queen Megaways Slot’s Features
The Wild is the most obvious feature, and it is what I used as a replacement for the regular symbols. This feature can also form its own winning combinations.
The Sun symbol is another of the available features, and it can land anywhere on the slot’s reels. When this happens, a flaming frame will appear on that location.
The more this land the more the flaming frames will appear. When there are no more left on the reels, all the Sun icons will be transformed into Wild icons. The Sun icons will boost the winning multiplier by one whenever they appear on these reels.
The Scarab beetle is the slot’s Scatter, and with 3+ landing on the reels, I was happy to trigger 10 free spins. If the Sun symbols land while in this feature, they get transformed into Sticky Wilds, in addition to increasing the multiplier by 1.
These Sticky Wilds will stick around until the feature comes to an end. If you make use of the Bonus Buy feature, you can directly buy the free spins at a cost of 100x your stake.
Theme and Design
The game has some great symbols that are influenced by regular animals. These symbols come in the image of birds, lions, cats, and hawks. Then we have the Horus, Anubis, not to forget the Queen herself. The available special symbols trigger the special features.
As earlier mentioned, Solar Queen Megaways borrows from the Ancient Egypt theme. The visuals, when combined with the gameplay make a great team.
The Ancient Egyptian theme is one of the most popular themes in slots, but it's not always executed well. There is a lot of creativity in this slot that makes it quite interesting and fun to play.
However, as a gamer who has had lots of success with slots from Playson, I’m a little disappointed with both its payout potential, as well as RTP, and can only recommend it to casual players.
