Primal Megaways Slot Review – BluePrint

The wait is over! We’ve been waiting for Primal Megaways for quite some time now. Finally, for Blueprints new volatile slot, it is now available on all sites! I have been very excited for this slot since watching the teaser trailer released last week. The game has an RTP of 96.76 %, six reels, and megaways. Megaways have been used in most of Blueprints new slots after their recent deal with BTG. Megaways make slots very volatile; they go up to 46,656 ways on primal. There is. However, no bonus buy available, so this slot is quite gritty. There is only one symbol feature in the base game and a bonus feature of free spins. Let’s find out more in our Primal Megaways Slot Review!

primal base game picture

The theme of the slot resembles Pink Elephants by Thunderkick but with the central symbol as the elephant instead of mammoths and other higher tier symbols as other wild animals instead of monkeys. The music and sound effects hype up the slot when you spin.  The only feature in the base game is a mystery symbol. This is represented by a fire symbol; when they land on reels, they will all reveal a symbol when the spin ends ( excluding wilds, bonus scatter and extra spins scatter in the bonus game).  This feature also appears in their other recent release Genie Megaways.

Primal Megaways Slot Review Symbols

primal symbols

The game has five low paying symbols of 10, J, Q, K, and A. These are in an uneven font with very dull colours to represent each. There are also five high paying symbols which are represented by different wild animals. The highest paying is the gold mammoth symbol which pays 50x for one line over all 6 reels. You only need to line up this symbol on the first two reels for it to pay. There is also a scatter symbol and a wild symbol which appears on reels 2-6.

Primal Megaways Slot Review Bonus Feature

The bonus feature can be activated in the base game by landing 3 or more scatter symbols. The more scatters, the more spins and bigger multipliers you will get in the free spins.

  • 3 scatters = ten free spins and multipliers of 2-3x
  • 4 scatters = 15 free spins and multipliers of 2-4x
  • 5 scatters = 20 free spins and multipliers of 2-5x
  • 6 scatters = 30 free spins and multipliers of 2-6x

During these free spins if you land a wild with a paying line, it will break and uncover a random multiplier between the active ones, this is dependent on how many scatters activated the free spins. So if you landed the most common of 3 scatters your wilds will uncover either 2x or 3x which will multiply wins on the current spin. These multipliers do not stick to the free spins and only multiply wins if they are uncovered on the current spin.  The mystery symbol is also active during these free spins and gives a great advantage for wins especially if you get premiums.  You can also retrigger an unlimited amount of times but again the more scatters, the more extra spins.

  • 2 scatters = 5 extra spins
  • 3 scatters = 10 extra spins
  • 4 scatters = 15 extra spins
  • 5 scatters = 20 extra spins
  • 6 scatters = 25 extra spins

primal bonus

I think this bonus is very volatile, the megaways add to the reels, and the multiplier feature is unique for a blueprint release. You can retrigger a good amount of times, but this can come with some unfortunate dead spins.  I would mainly rely on the mystery symbol feature for any big wins when I would play the bonus for myself.

There is also a bonus guarantee which is well known in Montezuma. This means if after your bonus has finished and you have won under 10x the game will award you ten extra free spins to get you to around 10x.

Primal Megaways Slot Review Conclusion

Overall, I think this game is entertaining to play. It has some unique features compared to other blueprint releases and is very volatile. They are sticking with the megaways trend to end the year and are coming up with some fun themes. I like the free spins with the random multipliers and the constant retriggers. I can’t wait to see videos of big wins from this game like I do on Genie. This game is available on all sites to try for yourself. Remember to check out my Twitch stream as well. I might just be playing the game. You never know!
