Machina Megaways Slot Review – Kalamba Games (Powered By Relax Gaming)
Kalamba Games is an international games studio based in Malta and Krakow. The Provider was founded in December 2016. They aim to release one slot per month and have a portfolio of over 16 games. Kalamba has released their first Megaways slot to start 2019. Back in October 2018 BTG gave Relax Gaming a license to use their Megaways mechanic and CEO Nik Robinson commented he looks forward to what the provider produces with the special tool. Three months later Kalamba Games has released their slot ‘Machina Megaways‘ which is already out worldwide.
The slot has Megaways but also a bonus buy feature similar to Vikings unleashed by blueprint, you can buy 4 different set amount of free spins for different X of your bet size with the fewer spins bought the cheaper it is to buy. But you cannot gamble for more free spins or bigger multipliers to risk losing your bonus buy as Vikings unleashed. Regardless, let’s find out more in our Machina Megaways slot review.
The slot has a very futuristic theme with some very detailed graphics; the slot setup is 6 rows by 2-6 rows due to Megaways with a max of 46,656 ways. Machina Megaways also comes with an RTP of 96.59%-97.2% and a max win of 26,000x. There are not any base game features other than the jackpot feature; there are jackpot levels of silver, gold, and platinum. The values of these will depend on your bet size; these jackpots will be awarded if you land a certain amount of cyborg symbols in either the base game or bonus in a single spin. 10 Cyborg Symbols = Silver Jackpot, 12 Cyborg Symbols = Gold Jackpot and 16+ Cyborg Symbols = Platinum Jackpot.
Machina Megaways Slot Review Paytable & Symbols
The slot has 13 symbols in total, 6 as low paying symbols represented by standard slot symbols such as 9,10, J, Q, K, and A. There are also 5 high paying symbols represented by different characters all with different coloured backgrounds, the highest paying is the cyborg symbol which can also award jackpot values. There is also a wild symbol which substitutes all usual symbols. The last symbol is the bonus scatter which activates free spins either from regular spins or from a bonus buy.
Machina Megaways Slot Review Bonus Feature
You can land the free spins usually while spinning or by purchasing them. To activate the free spins normally, you need 3 or more scatters to land on reels. The more scatters, the more spins you are awarded. 3 Scatters Awards = 10 Free Spins, 4 Scatters Awards = 12 Free Spins, 5 Scatters Awards = 15 Free Spins, and 6 Scatters Awards = 18 Free Spins. You can purchase this amount of spins, the higher the spins, the more expensive it will be to buy. The price for each will depend on your bet size.
Machina Megaways Slot Review Cost
10 Free Spins Will Cost = Around 50x, 12 Free Spins Will Cost = Around 90x, 15 Free Spins Will Cost = Around 190x, 18 Free Spins Will Cost = Around 340x. The ten free spins buy is not a bad price, plus you can easily get extra spins while collecting circuit symbols. The 18 Free spins buy price is very high compared to any other slots with a bonus buy, the extra spins can help but can it pay more than what you pay for it. While testing, I managed to land the bonus in a reasonable amount of spins, averaged 40-70 spins when landing the bonus in the base game.
During free spins, you need to collect a yellow circuit symbol to level up, when you level up a premium symbol will transform into the cyborg symbol and you are awarded two extra spins. For the first two premiums, you need to fill a bar of 4 circuit symbols. After the first two, you need to fill a bar of 5 circuit symbols to transform the other two premiums.
When all premiums have transformed into the cyborg symbols you can collect 5 circuit symbols to be awarded two extra spins; this bar can be filled with an unlimited amount of times. It is a very simple feature and is seen in many slots. During these spins, you have a better chance at landing a jackpot amount. These free spins are very volatile, especially when all premiums have been transformed.
Machina Megaways Slot Review Conclusion
Overall, I had so much fun trying this slot out. The game is very well made with stunning visuals and detailed artwork. The game is insanely volatile with both the base game and free spins offering jackpots from amounts of cyborg symbols instead of them being randomly awarded.
The bonus has some big potential with the jackpot amounts being a lot easier to win, extra spins being easily possible and a bonus buy option. The 10 free spins bonus buy is the best, in my opinion, I feel the others are too expensive for what it offers in extra spins. I like the fact you cannot gamble your bonus buy away as I’m seeing it a lot in other slot releases. I highly recommend you try this slot out for yourself and it is out now worldwide. Feel free to check out the offers we have on the website to try it out.
