This is a sequel to their Extreme slot, which was released as early as 2016, where its wonderful mix of features quickly became popular with players. It was certainly an extreme slot at the time, so it will be exciting to see if this slot lives up to its name as well.
We can see that they have chosen to add a Megaways mechanic and increase the maximum payout potential to an incredible 50000X the bet. That is a significant increase over the previous maximum potential payout of 2513 times the bet. It is time for us to travel to outer space and take part in glittering objects and their associated characteristics.
Extreme Megaways is a video slot that has 6 reels and 2 to 7 lines.

You can choose between a Min.bet of 0.20 and a Max.bet of 10, but by activating the Super Stake function you can choose to make a Min.bet of 0.30 and a Max.bet of 15. The RTP of the game it is slightly below average, where we have an RTP of 95.62% by default and this can vary, so be sure to check which RTP your gaming operator uses. It is a high volatility, in which the lucky player can win up to 50000X the bet.
Within this intergalactic gaming adventure, you can take part in a number of wonderful features, which make it easier for you to hunt for big wins. The features are Wild Symbol, Cascade, Super Stake, Gamble Drop, Free Spins, 8th Reel Bonus, Gamble and Bonus Buy.
The game design consists of a space theme, in which we can take part in sparkling gems and classic fruit symbols. The main focus is on the game reels where these colored symbols can land, while in the background you can see the dark space where the stars are shining bright. You create a win by landing 3 or more symbols of the same type on adjacent reels starting from the far left. The only symbol that requires only 2 to create a winning combination is the 7 symbol of the game.
The lowest paying symbols consist of gems in the colors blue, green, yellow, orange, purple and red. The highest paying symbols consist of cherries, BAR, bell and a lucky red 7. The rainbow-colored star is the wild symbol in the game and the purple sphere with a B is the scatter symbol in the game. The yellow question mark is the mysterious symbol of the game. Let’s find out what the features do.
The game’s wild symbol helps create more winning combinations by substituting for other paid symbols.
When you create a winning combination, the Cascade feature is activated. Then all the symbols that were part of the winning combination will disappear from the reels and then new symbols will fall to cover the empty positions. This continues until new winning combinations are created.
You can choose to use the Super Stake feature by paying 1.5 times the bet amount. This results in more scatter symbols landing on the reels, making it easier to activate the Free Spins feature.
When creating a winning combination, you can choose to use the Bet feature to increase your winnings. You can then choose between guessing the right color or suit on a face down card, and if you guess correctly, your winnings are doubled or quadrupled. If you guess right, the entire win will disappear.
If you get 4 or more scatter symbols, the Free Spins feature is activated. Depending on whether you got 4, 5 or 6 scatter symbols, you will receive 5, 7 and 10 free spins respectively. You can get extra free spins during this bonus game, where 4 scatters give 5 extra free spins and each extra scatter symbol gives 5 extra spins. During this function you start with a multiplier of 2X and with each cascade that occurs, this multiplier will increase by 1X. Something that makes this feature very profitable is that with each spin you will receive a feature from the 8th Reel Bonus.
Before you start using the free spins you received while activating the feature, you can use the Gamble wheel which can give you more spins. You can therefore bet and get a maximum of 14 free spins, but at the same time there is the risk that this entails, which can result in the loss of all free spins.
8th reel bonus
This extra bonus reel can display 5 different symbols which have different accompanying characteristics. They can be activated both in the base game and in the bonus game, where within the bonus game you are guaranteed to activate one of these 5 on each spin. These 5 different features are and do the following:
Destroyer = This will remove all symbols on the reels.
Random Wilds = You will get a random number of wild symbols scattered across reels 2-6.
Multiplier Wilds = You will get 2 Wild multipliers placed on reels 2 to 5. Where these can have a multiplier of 2X, 3X or 5X.
Dropping Wilds = You will get one of reels 2 to 5 full of wilds, so you will receive a respin every time these symbols remain on the reels, where they will be moved one level down with each new spin.
Mystery = You will get a random amount of placed mystery symbols. These can land on reels 1 through 6 and will show the same type of symbol once revealed.
If you want to access the free spins feature directly, you can use the bonus purchase feature. Then you pay 100 times the bet and then the bonus will be activated where you get 5 free spins.
