One of my favourite new online slots I can recommend keeping an eye out for this week is the newly released Rise of Samurai Megaways online slot from Pragmatic Play. It was released simultaneously on desktop and mobile in early August 2021 but has only just started becoming more widely available in September 2021. If you want to be one of the first South African players to try out this brand new Megaways slot, go to Casino.com or Mansion Casino today and register your free account.
It’s possible to win up to 5,000x times your stake on any lucky spin, and the main bonus features you can look forward to in this game are Tumbling Reels, a Multiplier Wilds feature and a Free Spins Bonus. You can play each spin with the Ante Bet switched ON or OFF, and you can buy into the main bonus feature at the start of any spin.
Playing with the Ante Bet switched on will double your chances of triggering the Free Spins Bonus, and it means you will be able to play from $/€/£0.25 per spin (R5.00) up to $/€/£125.00 (R2,500). Playing with the Ante Bet switched OFF will reduce your chances of triggering the feature by half, and it means you will be able to play from as little as $/€/£0.20 (R4.00) up to $/€/£100.00 (R2,000) per spin. If you can afford to spend an extra 100x times your total current stake, you can buy straight into the Free Spins Bonus without having to wait around.
To gain entry to the Free Spins Bonus (plus receive an instant Cash Prize worth 5x, 10x, 20x, or 100x times your total stake), you need to land 3, 4, 5, or 6 Scatter Symbols, respectively, anywhere in view on the same spin. When a new win occurs, the Tumbling Reels game engine will always kick into action, and once triggered, any winning symbols that are currently in view will be taken away from the reels to allow for more new symbols to tumble down from above and fill the empty positions.
If another winner is created, then another free tumble will be awarded. This same process will only stop when there are no more new wins in view. If you’re lucky enough to land 3 or more Scatter Symbols anywhere in view on the same spin, you will be presented with a huge Wheel of Fortune that contains an inner wheel and an outer wheel. You get to spin the prize wheel once to win a guaranteed prize. The pointer on the outer wheel will come to rest on a 2X to 25X Free Spins Win Multiplier, and the pointer on the inner wheel can land on anywhere from 5 to 20 Free Spins.
