Mega Money Multiplier from Microgaming: Slot Review - a slice of old-school action!

Get ready for some classic 3 reel slot action and some massive multiplier wins in Mega Money Multiplier!

Slot games with 3 reels used to be all the rage back in the day but they have been replaced by the more popular 5 reels format as well as a whole host of different ways to win now. Microgaming decided to breath new life into the 3 reel format and released Mega Money Multiplier to entice players to play the old-school way of playing online slots.

The slot has 3 reels with 9 paylines and features Wild Multipliers and Respins.

Special Features

The first feature I noticed while playing this slot was that it features not just one or two Wild symbols but an incredible four! As usual, the Wild Symbol substitutes for all other symbols. Each Wild Symbol comes with its own multiplier value and the multipliers range from 2X all the way up to 5X. The Wild Symbols are easy to notice on the reels as they display the multiplier value in a big number along with an “X” beside them. A cool thing about these symbols is that they also multiply themselves so if you land two 2X multipliers then you will be awarded a 4X multiplier. The only drawback of these lucrative symbols is that they only appear on the middle reel except for the 2X Wild Symbol as this can appear on any reel.

The standout attraction of the game is the Respins feature. This is activated when 2 or more Wild Symbols appear on reel 3. When this happens, that reel will freeze and you will be given 1 free respin with any wins multiplied by the value of reel 2. There is potential for some massive payouts if you use this feature to your advantage. For instance, if you manage to land more Wilds on reels 1 or 3 when the respin occurs, then the total win will be multiplied by both values!

Theme and Graphics

The game has a real style and elegant look about it as it features a velvet red background that is quite reminiscent of many classy casinos. The graphics are clean and crisp and are rendered in stunning HD quality. The symbols are a nice mix of old-school fruit machine symbols such as Lucky Sevens and Bars. The symbols run along the reels smoothly and there is a nice animation effect when the reels freeze as they slowly grind to a halt when you trigger a Respin.

The music features a decent range of arcade and electro sounds that helps keep the action ticking over quite nicely as you play the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 9 paylines, an average RTP of 95.4%, and a tempting jackpot of 80,125 coins.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.
