Mystical Santa Megaways Slot
It appears that Stakelogic has something particularly interesting for us this holiday season. They’re going to launch Mystical Santa Megaways, a slot machine with a Santa Claus inspired design, but also with a modern setup which relies on Megaways. Expect a game with high volatility, with big payouts and plenty of cool features, in addition to the usual Christmas themed images.
Mystical Santa Megaways will have 6 reels with 117,649 Megaways, the system which made the game engine famous. It’s going to pay well, up to 9,720x total stake, and RTP wise it will be at a reasonable 96.11%. All in all, it should be a very interesting slot with medium volatility, just the thing for the Christmas holidays. It also has regular and multiplier wilds, cascading reels, random Elf gifts, scattered Christmas Trees and free spins with increasing multipliers.
Betting and Prizes
The wagers allowed for Mystical Santa Megaways will go anywhere from $0.20 to $20, and this gets you all ways to win from a round, no matter how few or many appear.
The expected top payouts of Mystical Santa Megaways should be somewhere in the region of 9,720x total stake, more than enough to get us interested in it, even if it wasn’t for the excellent Megaways engine or the traditional theme and design.
The game is calculated to have a long-term return of 96.11%, which is enough to make it an OK choice, nothing to run away from if you’re used to slots already. Volatility for the game is considered a Medium, also good news since Mystical Santa Megaways has huge top payouts to deliver.
Mystical Santa Megaways Slot Features
A game with Megaways, Mystical Santa will vary the number of symbols on each reel, and so you never know how good a round will be. You might be getting a few hundred ways to win, or you might get tens of thousands. The game’s high potential comes from this mechanic, but at the same time so does its volatility. Cascading Reels will make sure that you get second chances as well, removing winning symbols and dragging others in.
The wild symbols have two variants, regular ones and multiplier wilds. They both act as replacements for regular symbols, but the latter can also apply a random multiplier to wins, of up to 10x.
Random features will come via the Elf, at any point as you’re spinning the reels. The elf throws gift boxes on the reels, and these can contain additional random wilds, multiple matching symbols, free spins or wilds with multipliers on one of the three middle reels.
You’re getting free spins as well, and the triggering requirement will be to land 4 to 6 scattered Christmas trees on the reels. You win 12, 17 or 20 free spins, depending on the number of scatters. Multipliers start off at 1x, but go up by 1x each time that the Elf shows up. There is the option to retrigger this feature.
Theme & Design
You will discover a very well crafted Santa Claus theme, the kind that has a main character ready to deliver presents, with the help of elves, reindeer, snowmen and all sorts of other related symbols (globes, Christmas trees) and less related Royals (still, very well designed and somewhat appropriately decorated for the holidays). I loved the quality of the design in Mystical Santa Megaways, it’s just what was needed for a slot that is offered for the holidays.
Mystical Santa Megaways has fairly high top payouts, and while it doesn’t reach the heights found in other newest slots using this type of game engine, it’s going to be a great choice for the winter holidays.
