The Megaways slots, in 2018, flew around like leaves in autumn: this is due to the partnership between Red7, WMS, and Big Time Gaming.
As usual with Megaway’s slots, this Battleship Direct Hit slot has many ways to win: up to 117,649, to be precise.
It’s enjoyable to see how other game developers translated the Megaways concept into this video slot and enriched it with some innovative features.
Free games are activated by sinking ships with torpedoes. You can earn up to 50 free spins per ship. Furthermore, cannons shoot mystery symbols on the reels and you can win up to 4 different jackpots.
The sounds coming from the bow of your ship and the oh-so-familiar war drum roll create a beautiful and exciting atmosphere.
How does the Battleship Direct Hit slot work?
There are 6 reels with a changing number of reels per spin. Thus, each new spin creates a different number of ways to win, adding up to 177,649. Winning combinations disappear and make way for new ones. In this way, several combinations can be created in one spin.
Betting is done from only $€ 0.10 per spin up to $€ 100 per spin.
The super big win is the Grand Jackpot, worth $€ 250,000 (on the maximum bet). That comes down to 2,500 x the total bet.
The variance consequently ranges from medium to high.
We are satisfied with the payout rate: 96,22%.
Symbols and payouts
The battleship, of course, is the most valuable: 4 x the total bet for a 6-of-a-kind.
Also, the premium symbols consist of 4 different medals: these are worth between 1 x and 2.5 x the total bet.
The card symbols 10, J, Q, K, and A are all worth 0.5 x the bet at 6 the same.
Turret Fire Feature
Once in a while, the cannons begin to roar, and you’ve won the Turret Fire Feature. These shoot away low symbols to make way for the same premium symbols.
Free spins bonus
You earn free spins in this game by sinking the ships at the top of the screen. For this, you need torpedoes, which fall on the reels. The bigger the ship, the more free spins you win. The smallest ship is worth 5 free spins, the largest ship 50.
Note, the larger the ship, the more torpedoes are needed to sink it.
During the free spins, you can win even more free spins or one of the 4 jackpots by sinking ships.
The higher your bet, the more jackpots you earn:
- Grand: 2,500 x your total bet
- Major: 500 x your total bet
- Minor: 100 x your total bet
- Mini 10 x your total bet
Our verdict on Battleships Direct Hit
As a child, we loved the board game Battle of the Sea. It was so exciting when your ships were almost sunk, and you desperately tried to send your opponent’s battleships to the bottom of the sea.
We enjoyed Battleships Direct Hit a lot. Although Megaway’s slots have been developed by many, WMS has incorporated the Battle of the Sea theme in the gameplay with a very innovative twist.
You feel the excitement building up, just like the real game.
Sometimes you only need 1 torpedo to sink a ship, and it is not always evident that it will work: that is exhilarating. The potentially very lucrative free spins bonus is at stake.
3 stars out of 5.
