Megadeth is an American heavy metal band with a big following all over the world, so it’s not really surprising that Leander Gaming has introduced a Megadeth slot game to their portfolio. The reels are held in place by chains, and the background stage scaffolding and flaring guitar riffs add to the metal atmosphere to the slot.
The well-rendered icons on the reels continue the theme as well, with a guitar pick, 3 different guitars, a speaker and a drum all making an appearance. Band members Shawn Drover, Chris Broderick, and Dave Ellefson represent the higher-value symbols.
Basic Megadeth Slot Gameplay
There are 5 reels and 40 fixed paylines in this game of slots machines Australia, and you can bet anywhere between 0.4 and 200 on every spin. This should suit the budget of most players, although you can also spin for free in a no-deposit mode if you want to. When you just need time to relax and enjoy the game with no financial pressures, or you want to practice before you stake any real cash, this free play is a good option.
When you are ready to play for money, the top jackpot in the base game is 500x your stake. With an impressive theoretical RTP of 97%, this is something many players consider worth playing for.
Megadeth Slot Special Symbols
The Wild symbol in this slot game is none other than Dave Mustaine himself, the last original Megadeth member still in the bandsa. He can stand in for any reel icon to complete winning combinations, with the exception of the Vic Rattlehead Scatter symbol.
When the Rattlehead appears at least 3 times anywhere on Reels 1, 3 and 5 you’ll be taken to a new screen and will get to spin the Mega-Wheel. This will determine which bonus game you get to play, from the Hangar 18 Free Spins that also make the Mustaine Wild sticky to the Head Crusher Bonus where y need to point and click at prisoners wearing bags over their heads. You start with a large multiplier, which reduces every time y chose a prisoner and it is revealed to be a map. Clicking on a female prisoner head ends the round and your initial bet is multiplied by whatever your multiplier value is at that point.
Mega Nudge Feature
This is an innovative feature in the Megadeth slot game and allows an auto-nudge on Reels 2, 3 and 4. The reels can be nudged up to 3 times, in order to try and achieve the best win possible.
The Mega Nudge will cost you extra, at 40x the line bet, but it takes the house edge down for 5% to 3%. This makes it worth serious consideration when you are playing for a lot of money, and when you’re feeling like challenging yourself and developing your skills. While it doesn’t entirely make up for the fact that the Megadeth slot doesn’t offer an Auto Play feature, it definitely helps to keep things in the game challenging and exciting.
