Spin & Score Megaways Base Game

Spin & Score Megaways Base Game and Features

Spin & Score Megaways is a 6 reel slot with up to 117,649 ways to win. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbol types (or 2 or more of the highest paying symbol) land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.

The minimum bet available to players is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other betting options in between the two to choose from. Looking at statistics, Spin & Score Megaways has a theoretical RTP of 96.97% and a maximum win capacity of 5,000x.

Spin & Score Megaways features both the additional Sliding Reel and Cascading Reels. Each time a winning combination is formed, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels and new symbols will drop down from above, filling all empty positions. Once a cascade occurs, there is a chance that more winning combinations will form.

If any of the symbols in the Sliding Reel are part of a winning combination, they will also be removed and all remaining symbols will slide to the left, filling all empty positions. New symbols will then appear on the right-most side to fill all other empty positions on the sliding reel.

In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbol in Spin & Score Megaways is the Footballer with the Green frame, followed by Footballers with the Yellow, Red and Purple frames. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Nine.

There is also a Wild symbol present on the additional Sliding Reel which substitutes for all other symbols except Scatters and Big Wild symbols.

Big Wild Feature

During any random spin in the base game, a Big Wild symbol that takes up 2 Horizontal positions can appear only on the Sliding Reel. The big wild symbol does not have any pay value.

Once active, all symbols on the reels directly below it will transform into Wilds. If the big wild symbol changes position due to a Cascade, all symbols on the reels directly below it will also transform into Wilds.

The big wild feature will not trigger if it is not fully visible or if it fails to change position after a Cascade.

Spin & Score Megaways Free Spins

Landing 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 Scatters across the reels in any position triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10, 14, 18, 22, 26 and 30 Free Spins respectively.

Before Free Spins can begin, if between 10 and 18 Free Spins are awarded, you will be given the option to Gamble them for more. If you choose to gamble, a Wheel will spin and stops on either the Win or Lose segment.

If the gamble is successful, the total number of Free Spins will increase by +4. If the gamble is not successful, all your current Free Spins are lost and the round immediately ends. The gamble wheel lets you gamble your current Free Spins up to a maximum of 22.

The chance of your gamble being successful from 10 to 18 Free Spins is 62.81%, from 14 to 18 Free Spins is 70.39% and from 18 to 22 Free Spins is 75.02%.

During Free Spins, the round will start with a x1 Multiplier in play. Each winning Cascade will increase the Multiplier by +1 up until the end of the Free Spins round. After each Cascade, the total win accumulated for that particular spin is then Multiplied by the current win Multiplier.

Landing 3 Scatter symbols during this round will award an additional +4 Free Spins. In addition to this, the Big Wild feature is also active during this round.

Spin & Score Megaways: Our Verdict

Not everybody is football mad, and Spin & Score is more likely to appeal to the lads rather than the ladies. Even still, it’s still a worthy option if you’re simply looking for a new Megaways slot

Spin & Score Megaways is a friendly and relaxed addition to the Megaways club, with a simple yet fulfilling Big Wild feature in the base game and a rather uncomplicated Free Spins round available to players who prefer their slots untainted by challenging or confusing features.

Spin & Score’s shining beacon is its Big Wild Feature, which is something Pragmatic tried out in Power of Thor Megaways. This has proven very effective before…if it shows up that is.

In terms of potential, Spin & Score looks Pragmatic through and through with up to 5,000x as a maximum win. It may not push the boundaries like some do, but at least they’re realistic.

Overall, Spin & Score is perfect for Megaways fans and football fans alike, and if you’re like us and you’re getting in the mood for the World Cup then it’s well worth a go.
