Hot on all previous Blueprint Megaways comes the Primal Megaways Slot which is taking the Megaways theme and using it within a Prehistoric theme. It has a vibrant and colourful icons with the Mammoth being the top symbol.

Slot Mechanics/Features

The only random feature which can happen during both base and bonus games is the random symbol feature which appears as fire and once all symbols are landed with disappear and turn into a symbol except for the bonus symbol. Interestingly if they are on a big stack with a possibility of a huge hit, they will slow roll in each column at a time.

The bonus requires at least three scatter symbols and can go up to six scatters, if this happens it awards the following:

3 Scatters – 10 Free Spins with x2 and x3 Wilds.

4 Scatters – 15 Free Spins with x2, x3 and x4 Wilds.

5 Scatters – 20 Free Spins with x2, x3, x4 and x5 Wilds.

6 Scatters – 30 Free Spins with x2, x3, x4, x5 and x6 Wilds.

The wilds are cumulative so x2, x2, x2 would make a win multiplier of x6 on the win. Retriggers can also happen with the following possibilities:

2 Bonus – 5 Free Spins, 3 Bonus – 10 Free Spins, 4 Bonus – 15 Free Spins, 5 Bonus – 20 Free Spins

During these spins the Random Symbol feature can appear also and can appear more often than normal.

What to look for

Primal can be quite effective in the base game as well as bonus but the biggest potential for sure is with the bonus and the multipliers. The random symbol feature in the base game can slow roll into a decent or big win. We have experienced one or two of these events so it’s not ultra-rare.

The biggest potential of the slot is in the free spins due to the combination of Megaways and multiplying wilds. The reason this has been capped to just 46,656 ways is due to the insane potential of getting wilds across the reels 2-6.

If you’re lucky enough to get 6 scatters this unleashes the possibility of x6 wilds which could make the maximum of x6 x6 x6 x6 x6 = x7,776 which is insane. Even a few wilds with a decent number of symbols can easily give x500 or more wins and this game can retrigger a fair bit with the fact is does do a lot of dead spins.

With only two bonus symbols needed to give extra spins its not uncommon to get a few retriggers in your bonus.

Final Thoughts

This is yet another Blueprint using the Megaways licence in an attempt to ride the enthusiasm for Megaways. This slot may feel similar because its in fact a copy of the idea of Raging Rhino with Multiplying wilds in the bonus.

It seems that Blueprint is determined to mix as many older slot concepts as quickly as they can with Megaways. This slot is no different as it takes the multiplying wilds from Raging Rhino and uses it in this slot. So, no real marks for originality however marks for getting the most out of the Megaways licence to get another interesting Megaways game.

The graphics are vibrant and well designed, and the sound is not amazing but works well. The concept is interesting for the bonus and can be exciting however the base game is nothing new as all other Megaways game.

We won’t be surprised see huge hits on this slot as the multipliers in the bonus round will give big variations on results. Overall to summarise this slot, lots of potential, not too much originality and an interesting variation on the Megaways concept. Will the Megaways concept run out of stream for the playing public, Blueprint doesn’t think so…
