There is no need to expect prehistoric game play from a prehistoric-themed online slot, especially one from an innovative slot developer like Iron Dog Studio. The studio that brought us the Neon Jungle slot travels back one million years to deliver epic win potential with the use of BTG’s Megaways game engine and a superb bonus feature.
The soundtrack in 1 Million Megaways BC is similar to Neon Jungle – plenty of drums, albeit at a slower pace – but that’s where the similarity ends. This title also doesn’t utilise the trademark Megaways top reel, and instead contains Wild symbols across the reels. With each win you earn a step on the Multiplier Trail to the left of the reels. Each win earns an additional +2multiplier up to x8, at which point you trigger the game’s Free Spins bonus feature.
Pros & Cons
- Only two high-paying symbols required to score a win.
- Four consecutive wins triggers the Free Spins feature.
- Multiplier with each base game win.
- Wins are slow to animate.
- Lower initial win lines than other Megaways slots (64 - 324).
- Sticky Wilds only appear during Free Spins.
How to Play
1 Million Megaways BC features a simple betting interface. Click the coins icon to open up the bet toggle, then cycle left or right to set your bet level. The spin button on the bottom right of the reels sends the reels away. As with other Megaways slots like Reel King Megaways the object is to match symbols left to right in Ways to Win fashion, meaning that symbols only have to appear in adjacent reels rather than traditional payline patterns.
Winning symbols animate then pop to allow new symbols to fall in their places, completing new winning combinations as they do. Each win lights a fire on the wood piles next to the reels and earns a x2 win multiplier, increasing in increments of +2 with every win until four are lit.
The high-paying symbols turn out well as a Caveman and Cavewoman, which only require two adjacently to pay out x1 your stake. Landing five adjacently pays out x7 while landing seven across a payline – the maximum payout when the reels expand to seven rows during the Free Spins feature – offers x14 your stake.
When you play Megaways slots you expect win multipliers and cascades, and you might also expect to see 10s, Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces as lower symbols, which is precisely what we get in this slot. The Icy blue Wild appears on reels 2-7 and substitutes for all game symbols.
With no Scatters to be seen in this prehistoric landscape we instead must land four consecutive wins to trigger the games Free Spins feature.
