Big Time Gaming, the undisputed king of Megaways slots, is ready with yet another great gaming experience for anyone seeking the truly big wins. The Royal Mint Megaways slot is not particularly original compared to other Megaways slots, but with a couple of really cool features, it stands firm on its own feet and offers a gaming experience that can really get an old ticker going.
When Royal Mint Megaways was launched in February 2020, we hadn’t heard from Big Time Gaming in months. That was not like them at all, but if the result of a few months of hibernation is slots like this, we are all for it!
Royal Mint Megaways comes with several goodies, such as an endless multiplier, Free Spins, Triple Reaction™ mechanic, up to 117,649 paylines, high volatility, RTP of 96.48% and an outstanding max win of 40,000 x wager.
As all other Megaways slots, it’s the Megaways technology itself that supplies most of the action on Royal Mint Megaways, but Big Time Gaming has also given the slot a couple of extra features that really takes the gaming experience to new highs.
First up is the Triple Reaction™ mechanic – which we have only seen once before on the slot Opal Fruits. This means that on top of the 6 reels with up to 7 symbols, get two bonus 1×4 reels above, and below the main reels it gives you up to a triple win reaction on every single spin.
Winning free spins on Royal Mint Megaways means landing four or more scatter symbols on the same spin. The scatter symbols spell out M.I.N.T and give you 12 free spins every time. Land just one extra scatter and you win 4 extra free spins. Scatters also keep showing up during free spins, but only on the two extra reels, where three scatters gives you four extra spins. The free spin round also has an unlimited multiplier that starts at x1 and increases by 1 every time the avalanche feature removes winning symbols.
Megaways, avalanche reels, unlimited multipliers and lots of free spins would be more than enough on one single slot, but Royal Mint Megaways has even more to offer. The slot’s real showpiece feature is the Heartstopper™ Enhanced Free Spins round that offers even bigger rewards.
To release Heartstopper Free Spins, you have to land three scatter symbols in the main game. Do so and one Gold Bar is collected. As soon as you have 40 Gold Bars, it will only take three scatter symbols to start Heartstopper Free Spins. The difference between normal free spins and Heartstopper spins is that the multiplier starts at x 2 and increases by x 2 following each win.
Royal Mint Megaways gets its name from the company that makes coins and banknotes in England. It is very appropriate for a slot, at least one that spews out winnings of up to 40,000 x wager, as Royal Mint megaways does.
Now from a graphic point of view, Royal Mint Megaways is actually quite boring and the reels themselves have exactly the same layout as Opal Fruits, and the symbols are largely the same as Big Time Gaming has used on several similar slots in the past. The reels are set against a large backdrop of the Johnson Smirke building in London, home to the Royal Mint since 1809.
The building is great to look at and naturally fits the slot’s theme, but the background is far too large compared to the reels. Yes, the slot plays perfect on mobile, but there are still many playing on a PC.
We love Royal Mint Megaways and features like Heartstopper Free Spins, Triple Reaction, Free Spins and big wins, but as far as graphics go, it’s quite disappointing.
Megaway slots have been the big thing ever since Big Time Gaming launched Bonanza back in 2016, and Royal Mint Megaways is a great addition to the Megaways family. Fantastic features and wins of up to 40,000 x wager should be more than enough for you to visit an online casino.
Surrounded by amazing 3D slot machines, it’s easy to forget that many players still appreciate the simpler slots, with what most people today would call lousy graphics, but can you call it bad if the developer meant for it to be that way? That’s what you’ll be asking yourself when you play Roasty McFry and […]
Even though we find ourselves in a time where we are surrounded by slots offering a variety of themes, phenomenal graphics, 3D animations and huge progressive jackpots, the old classics are still going strong. One can almost go so far as to say that the old three reel classics are on their way to make […]
Slot machines should be fun and it’s not all about big wins anymore. Over the years, the entertainment factor has become just as important and few take the entertainment factor to such heights as the Swedish developer Thunderkick does. In January 2020, they gave us Esqueleto Explosivo 2, a slot so entertaining you won’t even […]
Cazino Zeppelin was launched by Yggdrasil in October 2015 and quickly became a huge success for the Swedish developer. Not only does it have fantastic graphics, but it also has many similarities to one of the biggest ever slot machines, Dead or Alive from NetEnt. Just like Dead or Alive, Cazino Zeppelin comes with a […]
One would think that classic slots would be faded out as graphics and features keep getting better and more entertaining, but there is something special with slots like this and developers such as ELK Studios, NetEnt, GIG Games and Nolimit City are all still coming up with new classic slots, often referred to as modern […]
For most players, Big Time Gaming means Megaways slots with more than 100,000 paylines and that’s quite natural. After all, it wasn’t until they launched Bonanza in 2016 that they started to make a name for themselves, but don’t think for a second that Megaways is the only thing Big Time Gaming knows how to […]
Fans of Big Time Gaming know the Australian developer has fondness for making slots inspired by bit hit songs. So far they have given us slots based on songs from bands like Electric Six (Danger! High Voltage), Europe (The Final Countdown) and Dio (Holy Diver). This time it’s the British band The Cult and their […]
Raging Rex was the first slot machine Play’n GO launched in 2019 and they started the new year as strong as they ended 2018. This Jurassic Park-inspired slot will delight many players with its six reels, 4,096 paylines and phenomenal features like walking wilds, sticky wilds, and unlimited raging free spins. Play’n GO has been […]
Extra Chilli Megaways is the perfect slot for all players seeking high RTP, lots of action and cool features. The slot is the second Megaways slot from Big Time Gaming and although it’s somewhat of a sequel of the mega hit Bonanza, it has no problems standing on its own two feet. As is to […]
Ever since NetEnt was founded, the industry giant has created some of the most iconic slots ever developed. They have pushed the boundaries for close to thirty years and along the way they have given us immortal slots such as Dead Or Alive, Gonzo’s Quest and Starburst. With Dead Or Alive, NetEnt created one of […]
Egypt has been a popular theme for slot developers for many years and the list of slots with this theme is as long as your arm. The theme suits slots quite well, as ancient Egypt still to this day is wrapped in mystery. Most developers have one or more Egyptian slots in their portfolio, but […]
ELK Studios is not the biggest Swedish developer, but over the recent years they have launched a number of great slots with a wide variety of themes. ELK Studios has never been afraid to think outside the box and where other game developers seem to think that the key to success is to launch as […]
Our spinning tin of joy has come a long way indeed; from chrome, gears, and levers, to lightning-fast buttons, reels, and pay lines – all masterfully blown into life thanks to some real state of the art video graphics. Many new video slots sport up to 5 reels. When it comes to how many pay lines a video slot can have these days, the numbers are as easy to predict as the winning numbers of a jackpot, they’re simply up in the air. Some games come with fixed pay lines, while other slots give you the possibility to bet on paylines. New paylines can suddenly pop up and offer something fun and exciting while playing, like free spins, for example, all video slots are a bit different, just like the number of pay lines and your gaming options. At Casino Hacks we think this is just great, because players are different, and we all favor different games and features. Just remember, before you spin away, go a little easy on the betting. If you’re new to the online casino and slot games, a free spin run is a smart way to start, just so you get the knack of the game and different features.
Options and new chances really are the name of the game here, so naturally, slot providers are constantly working on finding new smart ways to add surprising and fun bonus features. We see this all the time when new popular slots hit the casinos, packed with new options – all there to give you as a player another chance to win for example via an extra free spin or an entertaining boost option, like a multiplier feature.
Truly great slots become classics, like Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst – and reviews are always a smart way to get more out of the games. Reviews of branded slots are especially smart to check out since the RTP – the return to player figures – for branded slots sometimes can be as generous as the Night King in the epic saga. This is not always the case for all branded slots of course, and we’re not saying here that this is the case for GOT either, just pointing out some facts. When it comes to quality and entertainment levels, we’ve seen some astonishing development in the last couple of years where some truly amazing movie and TV concepts have been crafted into epic video slots – Game of Thrones, Jurassic World, Gladiator, Planet of the Apes, Age of Spartans, Jumanji, Beowulf, Mighty Kong, Jungle Books, Emoji Planet and Beauty and the Beast, to name a few.

Let’s take an example, it’s much easier that way. Let’s take a great slot, one we really love, let’s go for Jammin’ Jars. Now, this is a pearl of a slot because of the potential it’s got, to be precise, the theoretical potential here is 20 000X. Volatility, on the other hand, can be brutal, so make sure you manage your bankroll. If you manage your bankroll, keep your cool and play this slot the smart way, it might just show you the way to some serious cash. But, like with all slots, you can never be sure, of course.
– RTP: Return to player figures are at 96.51, not bad at all.
– Volatility: High. You might want to stay calm and wait for the bonus game when that comes along, you can get lucky.
– Overall impression: A gem of a game. Stay cool and stick to your game plan and this can be a winner.
