Mega Don Slot Review 2022

Play’n GO is taking us deep underwater where sharp-toothed predators are on the hunt for the biggest fish, in Mega Don!

Hungry sharks swarm the Ocean in search of thier next meal. Here you will come across the aloof Leopard Shark, the headstrong Hammerhead shark and saving the best till last, the king of the ocean, the Great White Shark. You will also get to meet other hunters like the Barracuda and Marlin. Where there’s predators there’s got to be prey right? The Box Fish, Puffer Fish, Minnow and Shrimp need to be on their game if they are to survive.

When you live in the Ocean, It’s every shark for themselves. When you were younger you may have been taught that sharing is caring but when it comes to shark dinner, there’s no such thing! With other Predators on the prow for prey, will the Hammerhead and Leopard sharks stand a chance against the mighty Great White?

Let’s play on and find out!

Mega Don: Our Verdict

It’s not our first rodeo in shark-infested waters and it probably won’t be the last, but is Mega Don one of the better options? Well that’s for you to decide. Mega Don isn’t exactly the most gripping of shark-themed slots we’ve come across but there’s still plenty of action to be had here.

Maybe it seems a little harsh to compare Mega Don to Push Gaming’s Razor Shark considering they have completely different features, but its hard not to given the theme. Razor Shark came to us in 2019 when there was space in the slots market for shark-themed slots but since then some pretty epic titles like Ocean Hunter and 4 Fantastic Fish have come about which adds a little pressure to Providers who choose to dabble in this particular theme.

The design may not be the most appealing but Mega Don grabs our attention through the Snack Time feature and Shark Feast Free Spins round. Mega Don is all about Symbol Transformation and Progression which is something we’ve seen in a previous Play’n GO title, The Last Sundown.

The Snack Time feature is exactly that, a little something to keep you occupied whilst you wait for the main course to trigger. The Shark Feast round is very similar to the Snack Time feature only on a much larger scale with a lot more potential, up to a whopping 10,000x to be precise!

On the surface Mega Don may not look that exciting, but the deeper you go the more thrilling it gets.
