Rasputin Megaways Slot Review – Big Time Gaming
Big Time Gaming has had another successful year, with many memorable slot releases and showing the provider is still one of the best in the casino industry. For me, the best this year are ‘Golden Catch‘, ‘Castle Of Terror’ and ‘Outlaw’. Each game has incredible potential on offer and shows off exciting mechanics for the community to try out. The most recent release is ‘Outlaw’, which has a jaw-dropping max win capped at 64,400x and 2 Free Spins features with Enhanced versions for even more potential. Today we are learning all about the exciting launch of ‘Rasputin Megaways’, which is available to play now.
This slot uses a unique theme based on Rasputin, using the famous song ‘Rasputin’ by Boney M for the soundtrack. Rasputin is also known by his real name Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin, who is a Russian self-proclaimed holy man. Assassinated in 1916, the man was known for many different things. This includes being a political saboteur, mystic healer and many other apparent talents. The slot focuses more on the hit song, with vibrant visuals and flashy animations.
The game background shows a Russian Mosque, with spotlights on either side of the reel set lighting up this structure. Behind this beautiful mosque is an aesthetically pleasing night sky, with fluffy clouds and bright colours. The game background stands out thanks to these spotlights and animations which occur. The reel set is gold & blue, with a sparkle background for each low-paying symbol and jewelled Fabergé Eggs as premium symbols. The game background lights up when low-paying symbol wins occur. There is a slot of animations to look out for when you are playing this slot.
When you enter the Free Spins feature, the reel set is transformed to gold; the game background is also changed. The roofs of the mosque are moving, and the building is moving up & down to the beat of the soundtrack. You can see Big Time Gaming has put a lot of time into this slot with the amount of detail you notice.
Rasputin Megaways has a setup of 6 reels by 2+ rows; this includes up to 2,985,984 Megaways. This slot is high variance with a max win capped at 68,180x and a set RTP of 96.68%. You can bet from £0.10 to £20.
Rasputin Megaways Symbols & Pay Table
There are 12 symbols in total; this includes 6 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. There are also 4 premium symbols, which are represented by Green, Blue, Red and Purple Fabergé Eggs. In addition to these regular symbols is a Rasputin Wild and Disco ball Scatter symbol. The highest paying symbol is Purple Fabergé Egg, which pays 50x for 6 across a pay line.
The Rasputin Wild will reveal a number and add that many symbols to the reel set. These Wilds can increase each reel by 10 symbols in the base game and 12 symbols in Free Spins. Wins are paid out after these symbols have been added. Wilds substitute for all symbols except the scatter.
Rasputin Megaways Mechanics & Free Spins
Landing 3 or more scatters during a base game spin will trigger the Bonus Feature. This feature can be purchased for 100x your chosen stake. You have the choice between 2 different Free Spin Features, these are;
Big & Strong Free Spins
7 Free Spins are awarded Extending Reels during spins. The number of symbols per spin does not reset between spins. Each time a reel reaches 12 symbols, 3 additional Free Spins are awarded.
Ecstasy & Fire Free Spins
10 Free Spins are awarded an unlimited win multiplier during spins. The win multiplier begins at 1x and increases by 1x for every 5th symbol that the Rasputin Wild adds to the reel set. Landing 3 or more scatters during a Free Spin will retrigger this feature.
Whenever a win of 100x or more occurs in a base game spin, there is the option to exchange 100x for a Bonus Feature of your choosing. Whenever you win between 25 to 100x during a base game spin, there is the option to exchange the entire win for a chance to be awarded a Bonus Feature. Spin the gamble wheel, which has red and green segments. Landing on a Green segment will award the feature, and landing on Red will return you to the base game empty-handed.
Overall, I think this slot is definitely not something anyone expected from Big Time Gaming and a nice surprise for the casino community. With a well known song used for the soundtrack, plus a unique theme choice makes this game stand out in the casino industry. Big Time Gaming never fail to impress with the detailed visual aspects and animations. While you spin you will be head bopping to the soundtrack, with some iconic BTG sound effects for a throwback. The game background for the low paying symbols will light up when part of a win. Premium symbols also light up, special symbols also have a unique animation when they land on the reel set. Rasputin Megaways is a visual masterpiece, now onto the features & mechanics.
The Rasputin Wild is something we have not seen before, with a number of symbols randomly added to the reel set for each that lands. The option of 2 volatile Free Spins features, one with an unlimited win multiplier which does not reset between spins. The second extended reels which do not reset between spins, both with a retrigger and the special Rasputin Wild active. There is also the Win Exchange available, with the chance to exchange base game wins for a chance to trigger the Bonus Feature and a Bonus Buy.
