Survivor Megaways slot – Gameplay and Features

Survivor Megaways has three sets of reels.

  • The top set, led by a good-looking female survivor, has six reels with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 3 symbols per reel.
  • The middle set is a row of 5 (instead of 6) symbols. Reel 1 has no symbol (instead has a door).
  • The lower set, with a male survivor, has six reels with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 3 symbols per reel.

The beautiful thing is that these three sets of reels are combined. The 1st reel has 2 to 6 symbols this way. The other reels have 3 to 7 symbols.

It leads to a minimum of 486 Megaways (2x3x3x3x3x3) and a maximum of 100,842 Megaways (6x7x7x7x7x7).

The Avalanche (Cascading) mechanism applies, where after a winning combo, the winning symbols disappear, and new symbols drop (tumble) down. A free re-spin follows.

The premium symbols are four masks, of which the purple one is the most lucrative. The low-paying symbols are the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.

Wild Multipliers

The two survivors who star in the slot are the wilds: a female wild (red coloured) and a male wild (blue coloured).

When you spin an urn of size 1, 2 or 3 on the top set of reels, the multiplier of the female wild increases by +1, +2 or +3, respectively, there is no limit to this.

The same goes for the male wild, but on the lower set of reels.

The wilds only appear in the middle row and at most once per spin. The good news is that the multipliers remain intact for the free re-spins remain intact. Moreover, the multipliers of the wilds multiply with each other.

For example, if you have a winning combo with a female wild of x5 and a male wild of x4, you may multiply the win of the winning combo by x20. That’s awesome!

The multipliers reset, once you don’t get a re-spin.

How do you activate the free spins?

3 scatters (the golden Survivor logo) yield 15 free spins. Each additional scatter, gets you another 5 free spins.

The free spins can be re-triggered. 3 scatters yields 5 extra free spins, and each additional scatter again gets you 5 additional free spins. No limits!

Free spins with progressive multiplier wilds

The free spins are the same in terms of gameplay. Yeah, it all takes place in the dark. That’s understandable because it’s much more exciting now.

The main reason is that the Multiplier Wilds do NOT RESET in the free spins.

If you spin several urns at the beginning of the free spins and manage to spin a winning combo with both wilds afterwards, you’ll go through the roof!

Imagine you have wilds with multipliers of 30x each. Then you can multiply the win of a combo by a staggering 900x! Is that bizarre or what?

Payout percentage (RTP)

Survivor Megaways’ RTP is an excellent 96.47%.

Survivor Megaways slot – the variance (volatility) is high

Survivor Megaways has a high variance. Maybe even extremely high, but time will tell.

The maximum win is a blistering 39,960x. But even in the main game, it’s over 14,000x. I expect that the top wins will easily be around several thousands of times the bet.
