Big Time Gaming’s Royal Mint (Megaways) Slot Review

The Royal Mint Megaways slot is by Big Time Gaming and has 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win. With an RTP of 96.68%, it’s based on the Royal Mint building that produces coins for the UK. Playable from 10p to £20 a spin on all devices, it comes with reactions and random ways to win. The Free Spins feature can give you unlimited free spins with an unlimited win multiplier – collect gold bars to play the Heartstopper Enhanced Free Spins feature where each reaction increases the multiplier by 2.

Royal Mint Megaways Theme/Symbols

Royal Mint Megaways is based on the government-owned mint that produces coins for the United Kingdom. Owned by Her Majesty’s Treasury, you’ll see the building in the backdrop. Set inside the entrance pillars of the building, symbols include low value A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals.

You will also see various gems (blue, purple, red and green) – the highest value gem pays 50 x stake for 6 in combination. There is also a gem encrusted wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. You will also notice a horizontal reel above the main reel set (above reels 2, 3, 4 and 5) – here, gem encrusted wilds can appear.

Megaways mechanic

The game takes place on a 6 reel engine – each reel can contain between 2 and 7 symbols each. The more symbols per reel, the more Megaways – 7 symbols on each reel will give you 117,649 ways to win. The minimum configuration is 324 ways to win – this is determined randomly on each spin. To get a winning combination, you need matching symbols across adjacent reels beginning from reel 1 (i.e. on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4).

Reactions feature

Every win in Royal Mint Megaways triggers the Reactions feature – the winning symbols disappear and are replaced with new symbols coming from above on the reels and from the right on the extra reels. The reactions keep on coming until no more new wins are formed.

Free Spins feature

The Mint symbol is the scatter – this can appear in any of the 6 vertical reels. Get 4 or more of these Mint scatters to trigger the Free Spins feature. 4 will reward you with 12 free spins – each extra scatter adds an extra 4 free spins (i.e. trigger with 6 scatters to get 20 free spins). You then head inside the vault to play your free spins.

Unlimited Win Multiplier

During the free spins, the Unlimited Win Multiplier feature applies – beginning at 1x, each reaction/win increases the multiplier by 1 – with no limits. Free spin scatter icons can appear in the horizontal/extra reel and reward you with additional free spins – 3 scatters will give you 4 extra free spins with each extra scatter giving you 3 more free spins.

Heartstopper Enhanced Free Spins feature

Look out for 3 scatters appearing as this will reward you with a gold bar – when you collect 40 gold bars, an extra scatter is added per spin until the next Free Spins feature. 4 or more scatters in any position will trigger the Heartstopper Enhanced Free Spins feature.

Here, the win multiplier begins at 2x and increases by 2 with every reaction/winning combination. This is known as the Enhanced Unlimited Win Multiplier feature.

Royal Mint Megaways slot

The Royal Mint Megaways slot game looks great and is dominated by gold visually – whilst the Free Spins feature doesn’t offer anything revolutionary (with unlimited free spins and indefinite win multiplier), collecting gold bars is key to winning big as the multipliers double each time you get a reaction.

With a 96.68% RTP, it’s high variance slot which offers maximum payouts of 41,300 x stake on each free spin – the top win in the base game is 1,880 x stake (without multipliers of course).
