Megadeth bonus features
This feature-packed slot has loads going on to keep you on your toes… but it’s the Mega Nudge feature that we think stands out the most. This is a function on the side of the reels that you can switch on and off at your leisure.
Switching it on will cost you 40x your bet, but with each spin you’ll see the symbols nudge up to three times on reels two to four to give you the best win possible.
Find out what else is possible in this epic game and how you can trigger the remaining features.
The Vic Rattlehead Bonus is triggered by landing three bonus symbols across reels one, three and five. You’ll then see the Mega Wheel appear, which can spin to land on one of two features:
- Hangar 18 Free Spins
- Head Crusher pick and click feature
We’ll touch on the free spins round in the next section, but first, we’ll start with the Head Crusher feature. This one is kind of dark, and you’ll see 16 prisoners with bags over their head, along with a maximum multiplier amount. The aim is to reveal the female prisoner with the least clicks possible – every male prisoner you reveal will decrease the multiplier by one.
The Hangar 18 Free Spins round can award up to 15 spins depending on where the Mega Wheel landed. During the round, if a wild Mustaine symbol appears, he’ll stick in place to give you more chances to win.
Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine is the wild in this slot, and he’ll substitute for other symbols to help complete your paylines.
Leander didn’t include a jackpot in the Megadeth slot, but the maximum win on any spin is up to 500x your stake.
RTP and volatility
The cool thing about the Megadeth slot is that you have control over the return to player by switching on the Mega Nudge feature. The base game offers an RTP of 95%, but this can be easily increased to 97% by raising your stakes.
Megadeth also offers medium variance, so you’ll enjoy a nice balance of low and high wins semi-frequently.
Megadeth on mobile
Good news for fans who can’t get off their phones – Leander has produced a high-quality mobile version of Megadeth to rival the desktop version.
