Musketeer Megaways is iSoftBet’s first Quad Action slot

The Musketeer Megaways slot is 2 slot games in 1. It’s iSoftBet’s first Quad Action slot, where you can choose to play the single reel version (1ForAll) with Cardinal Richelieu or join d’Artagnan and the 3 musketeers on an epic 4 reel set (All4One). The 1ForAll version comes with 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win whilst the All4One version has 4 reel sets of 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win each. Use the buttons to the left of the screen to choose your version.

On every reel set, each reel contains between 2 and 7 symbols each. The more symbols per reel, the more Megaways. For 117,649 ways to win, you need 7 symbols on each of the 6 reels. You need 3 or more matching symbols on successive reels beginning from reel 1 to get a winning combination. With the highest value Richelieu symbol, you only need 2 in combination.

You can spin away from 20p to £50 per spin. In the 1ForAll version, bet levels range from 20p to £20 a spin. The stakes range from 50p to £50 for the All4One version. In either version, click on the Casino Chip icon to choose your bet level. Outside the UK, there is a Turbo Mode function (click on the lightning bolt icon) and Auto Spin facility.

The Musketeer Megaways RTP ranges from 95.53% to 95.99%.The 1ForAll version has a 95.99% RTP rate whilst it’s 95.53% for the All4One version. In both versions, the volatility is in the medium to high category (7/10).

The hit frequency rate for the All4One version comes in at 35%. This means a win will land every 2.85 spins on average. In the 1ForAll version, it’s 27.3% meaning a win will land every 3.66 spins.

When it comes to max exposure, the All4One version offers 19,507 x stake max wins. In the 1ForAll version, the max win is 33,980 x your total bet. The bigger wins will come from the free spins which will take 166 spins on average to trigger (All4One) and 366 spins (1ForAll).

musketeer-megaways-slot-base-game

Part of iSoftBet’s Twisted Tales series and with an adventure theme, the Musketeer Megaways slot is based on The Three Musketeers classic novel by Alexandre Dumas. Set in historical Paris, the graphics are high definition and colourful. It has a triumphant soundtrack which matches the theme.

On the reels you will see A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals. Then you have scrolls, bags of gold coins, musketeer hats and Cardinal Richelieu. The Cardinal Richelieu symbol is the best paying awarding 0.5, 2.5, 7.5, 20 or 50 x your total stake for 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination.

In the All4One version, the 4 reel sets have names based on characters from the novel. You have d’Artagnan, Porthos, Athos and Aramis reel sets. They all appear on their own reel set and replace the Cardinal Richelieu symbol on their own reel set. They all pay up to 50 x your total bet for 6 in combination.

There is a wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols except the diamond bonus or windmill mystery symbols. Wilds only appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 (i.e. not reel 1). Here’s a table showcasing payouts and information for all symbols:

Musketeer Megaways Mobile

musketeer-megaways-mobile-slot

Produced with HTML5 technology, Musketeer Megaways can be played on laptop, PC, mobile and tablet devices. With the game adapting to any device, including ones that operate with iOS and Android, I recommend you play on a larger screen (laptop or PC) as the 4 reel sets version can look a little clunky on a mobile.

Musketeer Megaways Bonus Features

The Musketeer Megaways slot comes with 3 or 5 bonus features, depending on which version you choose. Both offer cascading wins and transforming mystery symbols. In the 1ForAll version, there are 2 random features. In both versions, there are free spins with an increasing win multiplier. The All4One version has a special All4One super symbol which applies the highest multiplier to all 4 reel sets.

Cascading Wins feature

Every winning combination triggers the Cascading Wins feature. A reaction takes place and the winning symbols are removed and replaced by cascading symbols falling from above the reels. The cascades keep on coming until no new winning combination is formed. This feature applies in both versions.

Mystery Symbols feature

Also applying in both versions is the Mystery Symbols feature. This is played when windmill mystery symbols appear on the reels. The mystery symbols transform into the same randomly chosen symbol.

1ForAll Version features

The 1ForAll version is played on Richelieu Riches reels. There is a Lose to Win feature where any spin can trigger a bonus feature or winning combination. There is also a randomly activated Max Megaways feature where you’ll get 1 spin with the maximum 117,649 ways to win.

Then you have the 1ForAll Free Spins feature which is played when 4 or more diamond bonus symbols appear anywhere in view. You’ll be awarded 5 free spins for 4 bonus symbols and up to 7 free spins in total (for 6 bonus symbols).

Importantly, 4 reel sets are all active each with its own unlimited multiplier. Beginning at 1x, every win on a reel set sees the multiplier increase by 1, with no limits. If you are unlucky enough to win less than 10 x your total bet, the Bonus Guarantee kicks in and awards 3 additional free spins.

All4One Version feature

musketeer-megaways-slot-all4one-free-spins-feature

Played with 4 reel sets with up to 117,649 ways to win on each, there is only 1 bonus feature. The All4One Free Spins feature is triggered when 4 or more diamond bonus symbols appear anywhere in view on any of the reel sets. 5 free spins are awarded with 1 extra for every additional bonus symbol, up to 7 free spins.

If you trigger the feature on 2 or more reel sets, the combined number of free spins will apply. This means you can begin with up to 28 free spins. The unlimited multiplier is active and increases by 1 with each win.

However, look out for a special All4One super symbol on the reels. If it appears anywhere during a free spin, the highest multiplier is applies all reel sets. It will also give you 1 extra free spin. Like in the 1ForAll free spins, there’s a Bonus Guarantee where 3 extra free spins are awarded if you win less than 10 x your total stake.

Originality








The Musketeer Megaways slot is visually superb and uses the same high standards set by iSoftBet. Being their first Quad Action game, I recommend you stick the single/1ForAll version.

For starters, the 1ForAll version is cheaper to play (20p minimum bet vs 50p) but has a lower RTP rate (95.53% vs 95.99%). With a lower hit frequency rate, there are more bonus features in the single reel set version (5 vs 3).

The most important difference is in the maximum exposure. You can win up to 33,980 x your total bet per spin in the 1ForAll version. It’s 19,507 x bet in the All4One version. It will take more spins on average to trigger the free spins but the difference in payout potential is significant. Here’s a summary of the stats by version:

Stat All4One Version 1ForAll Version
Reels/Paylines 6 + up to 117,649 (x4) 6 + up to 117,649
Bet Range 50p to £50 20p to £20
RTP 95.99% 95.53%
Hit Frequency Rate 35% 27.3%
Bonus Features 3 5
Max Win 19,507 x bet 33,980 x bet
Free Spins Trigger 166 spins average 366 spins average

The version you play with depends on what you like as a player. I would always opt for the 1ForAll version due to the win potential. The All4One version has the special All4One super symbol that will apply the highest multiplier to all 4 reel sets.

I found the Quad Action version to be more of a gimmick than something substantial personally. Yes, it offers something different but the standard version is good enough to stand out on it’s own.

That said, other Megaways slots from iSoftBet offer bigger win potential. Royale with Cheese Megaways comes with 50,000 x bet max wins as well as a unique Build a Burger feature.

Now let’s compare to other slots in the Twisted Tales series. Queen of Wonderland Megaways comes with 37,500 x stake max wins. Scrooge Megaways on the other hand offers 12,000 x bet top payouts.

My pick would be Moriarty Megaways which is played with 3 reel sets in the free spins, offers 352,947 Megaways as well as 42,553 x bet max wins.

Pros
  • Choose from 2 modes (classic or Quad Action)
  • Up to 33,980 x bet max wins
  • Superb design/theme
Cons
  • Nothing original in terms of gameplay
