Spicy Meatballs Megaways (Big Time Gaming)

Spicy Meatballs Megaways (Big Time Gaming)When it comes to gaming innovation, only a few developers can beat Big Time Gaming, the renowned creators of the Megaways mechanism.

Spicy Meatballs is one of their latest slot titles, and apart from its high volatility it’s a game with massive potential as we will find out in this review:

Game Set-Up

Spicy Meatballs relies on the usual Megaways design of 6-reels, and up to 117,649 ways to win (Megaways).

Big Time Gaming has given this title a couple of great titles that include a wild symbol, reactions, a wild meatball, and free spins with increasing multipliers.

Betting and Prizes

The wagers on Spicy Meatballs is just $0.10 to $20, and although it may look like it’s not enough, it is ideal for a Megaways title.

From my experience playing this title as a real money gamer, I can say that winning here is not as easy as nay gamers may think, and especially due to its high volatility.

Spicy Meatball offers a top jackpot of 55,210x which goes hand in hand with its RTP of 96.57%.

Spicy Meatballs Features

As a Megaways machine, Spicy Meatballs offers 6 reels, with each column getting between 2 to 7 symbols which are also random. This is how you end up with 117, 649 Megaways.

With 3+ symbols landing on successive reels, left to right, I was offered the Reaction feature. With its help, I was able to remove the winning icons that were part of it. Afterwards, I received new icons that came in to replace those that were removed.

The Hat Wild symbol, serves as the slot’s standard substitute, and will only appear on reels 2-5. It helps in assisting in the formation of new winning combos.

Then there is a Meatball Wild, and this one lands on the top of the reels from the pots available on the cooking stove. You can easily notice them on top of reels 2-5.

Multipliers are engraved on the pots, and if Meatballs land on these reels, they come with these values. These serve as substitutes, and in case they form part of the win, they will remain in their position while Reactions trigger. 5+ reactions trigger gets you 8 + free spins.

Theme & Design

The theme is a little different from what we have been seeing from Big Time Gaming recently. You get to sample a kitchen where a lot of cooking (using chilli) is happening.

I noticed that the kitchen is set in the background, and the cooking stove holds the reels.

In addition to the Royals (9 to A), other symbols include red and blue peppers, meatballs, eggplants, tomatoes, and the wilds (chef’s hat).


Spicy Meatballs is an extremely fun slot to play and I love the uniqueness of the game.

It has everything that many gamers would be looking for, and if you can tackle its high volatility, then it’s an ideal game for most players.
