Max Megaways 2 Base Game

Max Megaways 2 Base Game and Features

Max Megaways 2 is a 6-reel slot with up to 117,649 ways to win. 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 £.€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £.€6 per spin, with a variety of betting options in between the two. This game has a theoretical RTP of 96.64% and a whopping max win cap of 147,620x.

In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbol here is the Purple Gem, followed by the Red, Blue, and Green Gems. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten, and Nine. Wilds substitute for all symbols except Scatters and Multiplier Wilds.

Each time a winning combination forms, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels via a reaction, and new symbols will drop down from above via a Cascade, filling all empty positions.

In addition to this, there is also an additional Sliding Reel situated above the main reel set. If a winning combination is formed using symbols from this reel, they too will be removed from play and all remaining symbols will move over the leftmost reel position, leaving room for new symbols to be added to the rightmost positions.

Max Megaways 2 Door Pick Bonus

Max Megaways 2 Free Spins

In the base game, you may come across 2 different Scatter symbols, a regular Gold Scatter and a Diamond Megascatter.

Landing 3 or more Scatters across the reels in the base game will trigger the Free Spins round, awarding 10 Free Spins, plus an additional +2 Free Spins for each Scatter after the 3rd. If one of the triggering Scatters happens to be a Diamond Megascatter, you will be awarded the Enhanced Free Spins round.

Before Free Spins can begin, you will be given 2 and 3 Door Picks for regular Free Spins and Enhanced Free Spins respectively. Behind each Door is a Free Spins Bonus that enhances the Free Spins round, as follows.

  • Multiplier Boost – Global Win Multiplier begins at x6.
  • Symbol to Wild – All instances of the revealed symbol will be replaced with Wilds on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5.
  • Double Multiplier – Global Win Multiplier increases by +x2 after each reaction.
  • 2 Scatter Retrigger – Landing 2 or more Scatters will award additional Free Spins.
  • Increased Ways – A minimum of 5 symbols will occur on each reel.

During Free Spins, a Global Win Multiplier is active, starting at x1 (unless the Multiplier Boost Bonus has been picked). Each Cascade will increase the Global Win Multiplier by +x1 (or +x2 if the Double Multiplier has been picked).

Max Megaways 2: Our Verdict

The Max behind the original Max Megaways was somewhat of a ghost in the previous title, but we’ve finally been able to put a face to the name in Max Megaways 2, and he’s not shy.

We can’t help but feel that Big Time Gaming are under a lot of pressure to make their Megaways titles the very best out there, considering they are the masterminds behind the popular Mechanic, but it seems they never fail to impress.

The original Max Megaways slot left quite a lasting impression on us, and it seems that Max Megaways 2 has done exactly the same. The title may be the same, but Big Time Gaming has made a few positive adjustments to gameplay that we can certainly get behind.

Base Game Bonuses are just the start of something beautiful. Max Megaways, Multiplier Wilds, Horizontal Wilds, and Symbol to Wild modifiers each have the ability to deliver impressive wins and a huge amount of thrill in the base game.

Max Megaways 2 is another of Big Time Gaming’s titles to deliver an Enhanced Free Spins mode. It seems that the days of only being able to access the Super Bonus via a Bonus Buy option are gone. This makes slots like this one much more appealing to players in the UK that don’t have access to Bonus Buys.

Big Time Gaming has made your choice between the two games much easier thanks to the differences in max win capabilities. Both Max Megaways titles have an equally impressive max win cap, but Max Megaways 2 just tips the scales slightly, with an impressive max win cap of 147,620x up for grabs.

All in all, Max Megaways 2 is a perfect follow-up to what was already an enthralling Megaways experience!
