Wins of Nautilus Megaways Theme

Wins of Nautilus takes you by surprise in more ways than one when you first load it up.

The music may surprise you as a loud and brasen indication of impending adventure, but it can give you a little bit of earache if you weren’t expecting it to be as loud as it is. The mute button may come in handy here, depending on how you feel about the audio.

Visually, Wins of Nautilus looks very interesting indeed. Set within the confines of an older submersible and looking out towards the ocean gives you an exciting feeling. The dynamic animations and great graphics really makes Wins of Nautilus stand out, and overall we think Fantasma can be proud of their design team for this one.

Wins of Nautilus Megaways Base Game and Features

Wins of Nautilus Megaways is a 6 reel slot with up to 117,649 ways to win. In order to form a win you will need to connect 3 or more of the same symbols from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.

Wins of Nautilus Megaways features Avalanche Reels. Each time a winning combination is formed, all winning symbols will disappear and new symbols will fall down via an Avalanche, filling all the empty spaces, potentially creating more winning combinations.

In additon to the Avalance Reels, Wins of Nautilus Megaways also has a Sliding Reel. If any of the symbols in the sliding reel are part of a winning combination, those symbols will also disappear and the remaining symbols will slide to the left, filling all the empty positions.

Countdown Bomb Feature

The Countdown Bomb symbols can appear in any position on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, during any random spin.

Each Bomb symbol will land with an Avalanche counter attached to it, the starting number on the Avalanche counter ranges from 1-4. With each avalanche that occurs, the Avalache Counter will decrease by 1.

Once a Countdown Bomb reaches 0, it will explode and create a Full Reel Wild with a Multiplier that is equal to x2 its starting Avalanche Counter value. If the Countdown Bomb is positioned in the Sliding Reel, it will drop down into the reel below it before exploding, and a new symbol will take its position in the sliding reel.

A special explosion can be activated if there are two Countdown Bombs on the same reel when one of the Avalanche Counters reaches 0. Once this happens, both Countdown Bombs will explode, creating a Full Reel Wild with a Multiplier that equals x2 the value of both the Countdown Bombs starting Avalanche Counters.

Full Reel Wilds

Full Reel Wilds can only be activated by the Countdown Bomb feature, appearing only on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

If 2 or more Full Reel Wilds are part of a winning combination, both their Multipliers are multiplied by eachother.

Respin Feature

During any random spin, landing 1 or more Respin symbols will trigger the Respins Feature.

Respin symbols can only appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Once active, each Respin symbol will remove itself and 2-10 random non-winning symbols, triggering an Avalanche.

The Avalanche contributes to decreasing the Avalanche Counter of any Countdown Bombs that may be present on the reels.

Wins of Nautilus Megaways Our Verdict

Wins of Nautilus has much of what makes a Megaways slot great, and a lot of what makes a Fantasma Megaways slot great.

When it comes to Megaways, others are happy to sit by and adopt a conventional Megaways format, but Fantasma Games likes to be a little bit different.

The theme is great, the features are plentiful and the potential is definitely there with maximum win capabilities of up to 10,000x.

We don’t think Wins of Nautilus is an absolute masterclass by any means, but it certainly isn’t your boring and unimaginative regular Megaways slot.
