Extra Juicy Megaways
Extra Juicy from Pragmatic Play has just been upgraded and is enjoying a new Megaways outfit. As before, all symbols pay from left to right, starting from any reel, but now you can also win in 117,649 different ways on every spin. Despite its modified layout, Extra Juicy Megaways is still the same classic fruit-themed slot featuring mouth-watering watermelons, a mix of citrus fruits and berries, plums, bells and lucky sevens. The diamond scatter also stayed intact and remains as one of the main bonus symbols in the absence of the wild. But not everything stayed in its original form here. Read our full slot review below, there’s much to be discovered.

The initial bonus features stayed pretty much the same as in the original Extra Juicy, but there are several new tweaks and extra in this edition. Multipliers operate slightly differently, but the shiny-new tumbling reels can create additional winning possibilities. Plus, you can start the bonus round with a total of 164 free spins or use the gamble feature if you’re feeling lucky! Let’s inspect all slot features more closely!
Tumbling reels allow you to create multiple wins in just one spin. When you form a win, instead of just winning symbols, all symbols from the reels that contained at least one winning symbol will be removed, except scatters and multipliers. These will tumble to the bottom of the reels and stay there for the subsequent tumble. New symbols will then fall into empty gaps for additional winning possibilities.
Diamonds are your best friends in Extra Juicy Megaways. They act as regular scatters in the base game but will transform into multipliers during free spins. To enter the bonus round, you’ll need to find at least 4 diamonds on the grid, but if you happen to land a total of 42 scatters in a spin, which is possible according to the developer, you’ll trigger up to 164 free spins! The way it works is you get up to 20 free spins for 6 scatters and then +4 free spins for every scatter landed beyond the 6th.
During free spins, the game proceeds as usual, but with diamond scatters transformed into sticky multipliers. They have a random value of 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 8x, 10x, and 15x and just like regular scatters, remain in their positions for as long as you keep creating new tumbles. At the end of the spin, the multiplier values add up together.
Before free spins start, you can either collect your free spins or engage in the gamble feature to win more spins. If the wheel stops on a “win” position, you’ll win extra free spins, and if it halts on “lose”, your current number of free spins goes down one spot. The gamble feature would not be an option if you triggered 24 or more free spins in the base game.
You could say that winning a max prize of 5,000x your stake equates to hitting a jackpot, but not when you’ve seen the winning potential of the original title. The drop from 60,000x your stake to the max win of just 5,000x is pretty drastic, so we’re not sure what happened there!
Just like the original title, Extra Juicy Megaways has the same high volatility rate, but the RTP value has been increased to 96.42%, which is great to see.
Compatible with all current Android and iOS devices, Extra Juicy Megaways is perfect for some mobile play whether you are at home or away.
