Primal is the latest online slot that the industry is getting with the very popular MegaWays system in place. This time it’s a Blueprint Gaming release, the company using the licensed MegaWays that Big Time Gaming has made so popular. They’ve done very well with it, created a great design for Primal and they even added their own innovative Replay feature to the mix.
In this case, you’re going to find a slot machine with 6 reels, and with a maximum of 6 symbols per column. This adds up to a maximum of 46,656 MegaWays, so a lot fewer than you’d expect from a slot machine with this system (Big Time Gaming made it famous with 117,649 ways). The big potential of this slot machine will come during its free spins, which are guaranteed to pay at least 10x the stake and which benefit from big multipliers and unlimited retriggers as well. Otherwise, you will get wilds as other major features.
Betting and Prizes
You’re not going to get the option to wager a huge amount in Primal, and the reason is the big potential returns on your investment. You spend just $0.10 to $10, and you can get a lot in exchange, so the casinos and developer are looking to limit their exposure.
Payout wise, it’s the free spins that will provide you with the most impressive jackpots. Each wild symbol which appears on the reels has its own random multiplier which will reach 3x. As an example, you could get three wilds each giving you a 3x multiplier, for a total win boosted by 27x thanks to them.
Primal: MegaWays Slot Features
The first thing you should know about Primal MegaWays, is the way the game works, in regards to its most important feature. The MegaWays system involves a fixed number of reels, 6 of them, but the number of symbols which appear on each column can vary. You can get anywhere between 2 and 6 symbols on each reel. The fewer ways to win that you can get is 64, if all reels get 2 symbols each. If they all get 6 symbols, then you have the maximum number of ways to win, of 46,656. It should be noted that other slots using this system will have up to 7 symbols per reel, and so in total they can reach 117,649 ways, considerably more than what Primal offers.
Now, the point at which the game seems to hit its maximum potential is during its free spins. Not only do you get the option to retrigger them as often as you can, but they are also guaranteed to pay at least 10x the stake. This is something that Blueprint has introduced, probably as a way to make up for the smaller number of MegaWays. If the free spins don’t bring you a reward of at least 10x the stake, then the feature triggers again.
The bigger potential of the free spins seems to come from the wild multipliers, which will add up with each other. The Wild Claws will transform into up to 3x multipliers, and so you could get much bigger wins thanks to them. As a quick example, three wilds, each one at 3x, will give you a total of 27x, but they can do even better here.
Theme & Design
It’s a very cool theme and design as well, with a focus on the stone age by the looks of it. You get creatures which are no longer among us, so sabre tooth tigers and dinosaurs for the most part. The Royals are designed out of stone and they’re colorful. It’s a good looking slot.
Primal MegaWays promises to innovate, while delivering the popular MegaWays system in a way that is unique to Blueprint Gaming.
