Rasputin Megaways Slot Review 2024

Crank up the volume and take to the dancefloor with Big Time Gaming’s latest Megaways title, Rasputin Megaways!

Born on the 21st January 1869, Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin was a Russian mystic and holy man who became friends with the family of Nicholas II, the last Empire of Russia, which gained him considerable influence in late Imperial Russia.

In late 1906, Rasputin became a healer for the Imperial couple’s son Alexei, who suffered with a conditon called Hemophilia. Rasputin was seen by some as a mystic, visionary and prophet, and by others, a religious charlatan.

Will Russia’s greatest love machine lead you down the path of extending reels in Big & Strong Free Spins or an unlimited Multiplier in Ecstasy & Fire Free Spins? Let’s play on and find out!

Rasputin Wilds

Each time a Rasputin Wild lands on the reels, it will reveal a random number between 1 and 48 in the base game and 1 and 60 in Free Spins.

Once a number has been revealed, it will automatically add that many new symbols onto random reels, increasing the ways to win.

Rasputin Wilds can grow each reel to 10 symbol positions high in the base game and 12 symbols high in Free Spins. Rasputin Wilds substitute for all other symbols except Scatters.

Win Exchange

Whenever you win 100x your current bet or more, you will be given the option to exchange your win for up to 10 Free Spins. This option is not mandatory so you can choose to Collect your win at any time (before the exchange has been made).

Whenever you win between 25x and 100x your current bet, you will be given the option to exchange the entire win amount for the chance to to win up to 10 Free Spins via a Gamble.

Landing the cursor in the Green section means that the Gamble has been successful, but landing it in the Red section means the gamble has been unsuccessful, resulting in no Free Spins being awarded.

Rasputin Megaways: Our Verdict

Rasputin Megaways is another fine example of Big Time Gaming’s capabilities with their own Megaways Mechanic.

Being able to jam to Boney M’s song almost makes the game worth it by itself, but thankfully there’s many more reasons to play Rasputin Megaways. The Rasputin Wild system really enhances the excitement of the Base Game, and through testing we found it delivered good results fairly consistently. Two options of Free Spins really makes you feel spoiled too. One of them is a more familiar Megaways bonus with its increasing multiplier, but if you fancy a change then the Big & Strong Free Spins mode makes a nice change.

The potential in Rasputin Megaways looks great with a maximum win cap of 68,180x. We’re not sure on how realistic it is, because we’re not aware of many instances where the Big Time Gaming slots has hit the max win, but we’re fairly confident in Rasputin Megaways’ abilities.

Overall, Rasputin Megaways is another from Big Time Gaming that makes you appreciate them as a go-to provider when you’re looking for some Megaways action. Who better than those that made it, after all?
