The standard symbols on the reels are represented by the band members Chris Broderick, Shawn Drover and David Ellefson (who has been a big influence on the other band members). The image of Vic Rattlehead makes the wild symbol.
As can be expected, the slot game has a dark theme. The background is in the form of a concert setting with a number of spotlights pointing to the stage. The reels are placed on a metal frame held together by chains. Every symbol on the reel has a feiry or a black background. Apart from the band members, there are drums and guitars, a guitar pick and an amplifier that make up the standard symbols. It’s a highly striking slot game whose sound effects are obviously the excerpts from Megadeth songs.
There are a couple of distinct features of the game that you should definitely be aware of. The first one is to do with free spins wherein the wild symbol plays a very crucial role. The second one is in the form of a pick-me round wherein you are required to select prisoners, hoping that you pick the female ones!
Set up and game play:
If you play online slot games on a regular basis, the immediate thing you’d notice when you start this game is that each one of the five reels shows four symbols, as against the regular three. The slot game ‘offers 40 winning lines and also features a ‘mega nudge’ option that although doubles up the spin cost, can nudge the reels slightly down or up, to help you score extra wins.
You score wins by landing matching symbols on the reels from left to right, forming a winning pay line. You are awarded every time you get three or more similar symbols in a similar pattern. The Megadeth logo symbol pays the highest at 500 times the coin amount if you get five of them in a row. This is followed by David Ellefson symbol (300 times), Shawn Drover symbol (200 times) and Chris Broderick symbol (150 times). The rest of the symbols have comparatively lower payouts.
The Vic Rattlehead wild symbol although doesn’t cause any direct wins, when it comes up it expands to fill the entire reel, making extra wins possible.
Bonus feature is activated whenever you get the bonus scatter symbol on the first, third and fifth reel. Once activated, you are taken to the Mega Wheel spin, which then takes you either to ‘Head Crusher’ bonus round or the ‘Hangar 18’ free spins.
On the whole, regardless of whether you gamble actively or not, you are guaranteed to love this online slot game if you’re Megadeth fan!
