Mediaeval adventure is the theme on offer in Holy Diver MegaWays, another release in Big Time Gaming’s MegaWays series of slots. This one is played using a 6 reel game engine which can offer up to 15,120 ways to win. The game comes with 4 base game modifiers that offer wild and multiplier extras as well as a free spins round. Play this medium to high variance game on all devices from between 10p and £20 per spin.

The reels are dominated by A to 9 royal values plus 4 gemstone symbols. The purple stone is the best payer, awarding 15 times your stake if you land 6 on adjacent reels. The number of symbols in play changes with each spin. As does the number of potential ways to win.

Below the reels you’ll see an animated knight racing along a path. When he reaches a treasure chest, he’ll kick it open to reveal 1 of 4 modifier extras:

  • Standard Symbol Bonus feature – 1 of the lower value royal values is picked at random. All instances of this symbol are turned into a wild and a new payout calculation is made.
  • Sword Bonus feature – up to 3 reels can turn totally wild. These wild reels also come with multipliers that can boost payouts by up to 7x. The multipliers can combine. With all 3 top 7x multipliers in play, it rockets to 343x!
  • Fireball Bonus feature – up to 4 flaming wilds are added to the reels. These explode to turn adjacent positions wild too.
  • Gem Symbol Bonus feature – 1 or more gemstone symbols transform into wilds. These could also come with 2x or 3x multipliers as you work your way through the levels.

You do that by filling the meter with gemstones from the treasure chests. After all 4 positions are full, you can level up or trigger the Free Spins feature. This is known as the Shield of Fortune feature.

If you opt to trigger the Free Spins feature, you’ll be awarded 10 free spins. Look out for gems appears on reels 2 through 5 as this will turn wild with a multiplier based on your level. At level 2 and 3, the wild becomes a 2x wild and 3x wild respectively.

Rather than opening treasure chests, the heroic knight collects diamonds during the free spins. 1 extra free spin is added to your tally with the first 4 diamonds collected. The fifth awards 8 free spins. A re-trigger also increases the number of symbols on each reel and the number of MegaWays in play. At their maximum they can offer 586,789 ways to win!

We’re always pleased to see something new and innovative from a slot and Holy Diver MegaWays delivers just that. The treasure chest bonuses come along regularly and deliver plenty of action. The variance here is in the medium to high range.

You can win 17,042 times your stake on each base game spin – however, in the feature with a 2x and 3x wilds, a whopping 23,306 times your stake per free spin can be won! If you’ve enjoyed the slots in the MegaWays series then you should find plenty to like in Holy Diver MegaWays – I also recommend you try Primal MegaWays which is excellent.
