Holy Diver: Megaways Slot Machine
A slot machine that’s inspired by an 80s heavy metal hit song, using the very popular Megaways system and implementing a new type of mechanic called Reel Adventure, Holy Diver is one of the most impressive games we’ve seen Big Time Gaming launch lately. It’s no small feat, as this developer has impressed repeatedly over the last year or so, with the slot machines that they’ve been putting out.
For starters, check out the game area, which relies on 6 reels and which can deliver as many as 586,971 MegaWays during certain advanced features. In addition to the Megaways mechanic, there is also the Reel Adventure, free spins and four types of reel modifiers which bring with them big multipliers. It’s a game with massive potential, same as in other very popular BTG slot machines.
Betting and Prizes
Your bets in Holy Diver will rely on the total amount that needs to be used, so the line bet is not that important here. You only have to pick the total bet, between $0.10 and $20, and that range will be enough. The value of the bet is the one used as a basis for the prizes paid inside.
Speaking of prizes, there are some decent ones which can be paid out, but the individual ways to win aren’t the ones to provide the best value. A combo of the right 6 symbols will pay 15x the stake, but there are several multipliers inside, which can boost that amount by a lot. Even better, there are even as many as 586,971 ways to win available in a single spin, so quite a few chances to get a big payout exist.
Holy Diver Megaways Slot Features
First, let’s take a look at the Megaways system. It’s a mechanic which varies the number of symbols on the reels, each column getting at random 2 to 7 symbols. Since the symbols can vary a lot, so do the ways to win that result. You can have as few as 64 Megaways active in one round, or as many as 117,649 during regular spins. The free spins take this further, at least for this game, up to a potential 586,971 ways.
Reel Adventure is a new mechanic, invented and trademarked by BTG. It’s a way for the player to upgrade the game, increasing the number of ways to win. In addition to the main game area, there is a second one which shows a knight that moves along and finds treasure chests. Reel modifiers are activated when this happens (about in 20% of your spins).
The reel modifiers include the Standard Symbol (turns a low value icon into a wild), Sword Bonus (gives 1-3 wild reels and up to 7x multipliers), Fireball Bonus (adds 1 to 4 wilds) and Gem Symbol Bonus (gives you Gem Wilds, with 2x/3x multipliers).
Shield of Fortune activates through collected gems of different colors, and it allows you to pick whether you want a bigger level for the free spins later, or if you want the free spins now.
You get 10 free spins here, and there are several levels to them. You have wilds with multipliers to help out, and each time you retrigger the feature you can increase the number of ways to win, eventually reaching the highest potential of 586,971.
Theme & Design
The graphics aren’t the ones that make the BTG slots special, and I wouldn’t expect much from these either. The typical design of theirs is average, but the slots are still a lot of fun. Symbols include medieval style icons, gems and Royals.
I think you will love the game and its awesome unique features, especially since there are big potential rewards as well to be had.
