Megasaur is a slot game developed by the busy team at RTG, and it’s time to head on back to the world of the dinosaurs. You can see how the likes of Jurassic Park has perhaps influenced the development of this game, but does it have any real bite?
Overview of Megasaur
This slot offers you 5 reels and a total of 25 different paylines. The reels themselves are set against a jungle backdrop, and they have made sure to add in some freaky music to add to the feelings of danger. From this perspective, they have managed to do a pretty good job.
For the symbols, you are looking at both a red and green ‘megasaur’ along with a volcano, card symbols, and various other dinosaurs thrown in for good measure.
How to Play Megasaur
The first thing to do is to select your betting range, and there are 3 options here, as you choose from a minor bet, major bet or mega bet. Of course, as you move up in size, so does the cost to you. Also, there’s the coin denomination, and you can alter that by hitting the up and down arrows to alter the value. Once you have done this, you are ready to spin those reels.
Bonus Features for Megasaur
Megasaur comes with various bonus features, and both the red and green megasaur act as the wilds. If the green version lands on reel 2, it then swaps out other symbols apart from the red and volcano to bolster your chances of winning lines. The red megasaur acts in the same way as the green, but it only appears on reel 4.
The volcano symbol acts as the scatter, and you need to land 3 or more of them in order to trigger some free spins as a bonus. How many free spins you get depends on the number of symbols you land, with a minimum of 6 free spins and a maximum of 50. However, to do this you need to choose from 1 of 3 volcano symbols that offer you either 2, 5, or 10 spins. This is then multiplied by the number of volcano symbols you landed on the initial spin.
Finally, you get a special feature bonus for every time you hit 250 spins.
Betting and Payouts for Megasaur
The coin denomination with this game varies from 0.05 to 0.20. If you then add that into the three-bet levels, then they will cost you $1.25 for the minor, $2.50 for the major, and finally $5 for the major. But here’s the impressive part. This game has a progressive jackpot that can go as high as $1 million. Considering you have a maximum bet of $5, then that would be a seriously cool return. However, that in itself is obviously very difficult to achieve, and other symbols offer reasonable payouts for landing 3, 4, or 5 of them.
Megasaur is a cool game that does at least have a different theme compared to most out there. The best part is the chance to win such a huge prize, but even that aside, you can have a healthy return on a low bet, so if you want to see if you can outdo the dinosaurs, then this is the game for you.
