Mammoth Gold Megaways Base Game

Mammoth Gold Megaways Base Game and Features

Mammoth Gold Megaways is a 6 reel slot with up to 117,649 ways to win. Forming winning combinations requires 3 of the same symbol (or 2 or more of the highest paying symbol) to land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.

The minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other options inbetween the two. Mammoth Gold Megaways has a theoretical RTP of 96.03% and a max win cap of 10,000x.

In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol here is the Mammoth, followed by the Saber-toothed Tiger, Wolf, Warthog, Bear and Dodo. Low-paying symbols fall to Spades, Hearts, Clubs and Diamonds. Wild symbols only appear on the additional Sliding Reel, substituting for all other symbols except Scatters.

Like most Megaways slots, Mammoth Gold Megaways has both Cascading Reels and an additional Sliding Reel. Each time a winning combination forms, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels and new symbols will drop down from above.

If any symbols in the Sliding Reel are used as part of a winning combination, they too will be removed from their positions and all remaining symbols will move over to the left, filling all the empty positions. New symbols will then slide onto the right-most positions.

Wild Multiplier

Whenever a Wild symbol appears on the sliding reel, it will reveal a Multiplier value of x2 or x3. This Multiplier is applied to any wins that form during this spin and is stored in a Meter.

If more Wilds were to land during the same spin, their Multiplier values are collected and added to the current Multiplier Meter and applied to any new wins that may form.

Once no more cascades or wins occur, the Multiplier Meter will be reset back to x1.

Mammoth Gold Megaways Gamble Wheel

Mammoth Gold Megaways Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatters across the reels will trigger the Free Spins round. Once active, you will be taken to a Wheel where your total number of Free Spins is chosen at random from the following options.

  • 3 Scatters – Awards between 5 and 14 Free Spins.
  • 4 Scatters – Awards between 6 and 14 Free Spins.
  • 5 Scatters – Awards between 7 and 14 Free Spins.
  • 6 Scatters – Awards between 8 and 14 Free Spins.

Gamble Wheel

If your chosen number of Free Spins is below 14, you will be given the option to Gamble them for more. If you dont fancy gambling your Free Spins, you can simply walk away by pressing the Collect button and the Free Spins round will begin.

Choosing to gamble will reveal a Wheel with Red and Green segments on it. Landing your cursor in the Green section means the gamble has been successful and you will win the next level of Free Spins.

If the Cursor lands in a Red section, this means the gamble has not been successful and you will return to the base game empty-handed. If you gamble and then change your mind, the Collect button is always available and you can walk away before spinning the wheel.

During Free Spins, Wild symbols land with a random Multiplier of x2 or x3. Each time a Wild symbol lands, its Multiplier value will be stored in the Multiplier Meter and applied to any wins for that spin, without being reset between spins.

Each time a new Wild lands, its multiplier value will multiply the total value in the Meter. In addition to this, every Cascade that occurs will increase the Multiplier Meter level by x1. 

Landing 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatters during this round will award an additional +1, +2, +3, +4 and +6 Free Spins respectively.

Mammoth Gold Megaways: Our Verdict

Mammoth Gold Megaways doesn’t look all that familiar, but it certainly feels familiar.

That of course is because it takes a lot of inspiration from another within Pragmatic’s catalogue, Muertos Multiplier Megaways. We rated Meurtos Multiplier Megaways rather highly because of its unconventional take on the standard Megaways mechanic, and its ability to deliver huge multipliers. You could say equally say that the potential here is ‘Mammoth’, if you’ll excuse the pun.

If the older game resonated with you, then Mammoth Gold Megaways will too. It’s a far cry from the South American day of the dead slot that translates literally to ‘Dead’ Multiplier Megaways, but all of the internal cogs spin the same way.

In terms of potential, Mammoth Gold Megaways looks great at 10,000x as a maximum win. In fact, it’s double what most Pragmatic slots offer up.

Overall, Mammoth Gold Megaways can’t be considered brand new, but its a refreshing take on a great game.
