Chef hats at the ready as Videoslots Casino will be dishing up the latest slot from Big Time Gaming titled Spicy Meatballs Megways to their casino on the official launch day of the 14th of July 2021.
This slot has a backstory that manages to encapsulate previous releases with hints to the Bonanza Megapays setting. Of course, the cows from Beef Lightning Megaways are possibly making their way into the actual Meatballs! They are a secret blend of “Mt Cashmore Beef” and an old Sicilian recipe passed down from Jose’s (the previous Chilli Stand Owner) grandmother.
Enough of the backstory though, this is a fairly regular Megaways slot with 6 reels and regular wild symbols in play (Chef Hat Wilds) along with 4 steaming Meatball chutes above the middle reels that can add more spicy Multiplier Wilds into the gameplay, with a maximum of 2 of these multiplier Meatballs allowed in play at any given moment.
There are no scatter symbols to be concerned about on this slot at all. Instead, you are looking to get 5 or more consecutive wins, thanks to the Megaways and tumbling reels features and additional wilds all combining to make successive wins easier.
When the special Meatball Wilds form part of a win, they will also rise in Multiplier Value by 1x each time and move 1 position further down the reels.
With max Megaways active on a given reel, these wilds can grow very high in value too before reaching the very bottom of the reel and then disappearing.
However, the key feature to this slot is during the free spins mode, where any Multiplier values attained before triggering the bonus feature are kept and transferred into the bonus round. Any further gains to these rising values are maintained throughout the bonus feature.
During our playtests, we did manage to get over 15x Multipliers and 8x Multipliers on reels 2 and 3 and having these “early” wilds as big multiplier values makes it way easier to score the biggest wins!
With multiple re-triggers and a guaranteed Meatball wild symbol being added on every spin during the bonus round, it’s quite possible to get some crazily high multiplier values in play, then you need to hope for winning combinations that cover all of the reels!
Touting a max stated overall exposure of 55,210x Stake and a max win possible from the base game of 52,600x stake ensures this slot can certainly be categorised as Extra Spicy!
