Mega Don: Feeding Frenzy Slot Review 2024
Something that was thought to be extinct is lurking deep beneath the surface and it’s heading our way in Play’n GO’s latest release, Mega Don: Feeding Frenzy!
The legendary Mega Don is back and he is starving! Be on the lookout as this apex predator takes to the reels and begins his feeding frenzy, but be careful not to get too close…
Mega Don: Feeding Frenzy Base Game and Features
Mega Don: Feeding Frenzy is a 5-reel Video Slot with 10 fixed pay lines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols (or 2 or more of the Highest-paying symbol) land from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.
The minimum bet available here is £.€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £.€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. This game has a theoretical RTP of 96.2% and a max win cap of 20,000x.
In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbol here is the Mega Don, followed by the Hammerhead, Leopard, Green Fish, and Swordfish. Low-paying symbols fall to a collection of smaller Fish. Wilds appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5, substituting for all other symbols except Scatters.
During any random base game spin, the Snack Time Feature can be triggered. Once active, up to 3 smaller Fish symbols are randomly chosen and upgraded into a Shark symbol if they appear on the reels.
Please note, that Scatters, Wilds, and Shark symbols cannot transform. The randomly chosen Shark symbol during Snack Time increases its number on the reels.
Mega Don: Feeding Frenzy – Shark Feast Free Spins
Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding a payout of 2x, 15x, and 50x your bet respectively. Once the Free Spins round is active, you will be given the option of 3 Free Spins options, as follows.
- 10 Free Spins – Awards 88 Leopard Sharks on the reels. Volatility 3/5.
- 8 Free Spins – Awards 98 Hammerhead Sharks on the reels. Volatility 4/5.
- 6 Free Spins – Awards 108 Mega Don Sharks on the reels. Volatility 5/5.
During Free Spins, when Upgrading symbols land in view, they will transform into the chosen Shark from Free Spins selection. Upgrading symbols are active until the end of the Free Spins round.
Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters during this time will award an additional +2 Free Spins and +1 Upgrading symbol, +4 Free Spins and +2 Upgrading symbols, and +6 Free Spins and +3 Upgrading symbols respectively.
Mega Don: Feeding Frenzy – Our Verdict
Not much has changed since we came face to face with the mighty Mega Don in 2022. Play’n GO has kept gameplay relatively the same as before, leaving plenty of room for improvements.
The Snack Time feature has made a comeback, yet there’s little in the way of positive changes to point out. Throw in a couple of cheeky Multipliers or renowned features and you’ve got yourself a promising sequel.
However, there’s plenty of jaw-dropping suspense to be had in Free Spins, where more of your chosen Shark symbol appears on the reels. Landing a retrigger will award a number of additional Free Spins and symbol Upgrades which leads to even bigger wins and potential.
When the Mega Don is no longer hangry, max wins of up to 20,000x can be achieved. This figure is double the max win seen in the original, and one that’s worth sticking your neck on the line for!
