Inspired Gaming takes its turn at licensing BTG’s Megaways game engine, perhaps now the world’s most popular game engine. If you haven’t yet played slots like Rainbow Riches Megaways or Return of Kong Megaways then it’s likely you have been hiding in a cave with no cell phone signal. Once again we aim for left-to-right symbol combinations, with a varying number of Ways to Win on each spin.
The top Extra Reel once again features Wild symbols to help you find winning combinations and trigger any of a score of bonus features in ancient Rome. Watch out for the Centurion of the game’s title. He hides behind a bush and leaps out to announce any one of a number of reel modifiers – see the bonus games section for the juicy details.

How to Play
To set your bet toggle, alter the bet level on the left of the reels if playing on desktop and to the left of the spin button on mobile. You have the option to select up or down arrows or click the bet amount and select from the range on the screen that pops up. Press the spin button to set the reels in motion. The reels spin, including the top Extra Reel which covers reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and completes winning symbols.
Just like in the original Megaways online slot release, Bonanza! Megaways, each spin is unique, with the number of ways displayed to the top left of the reels. Each winning combination disappears and more symbols fall into place in the Cascades feature. If those symbols form winning combinations they will also pop and allow more symbols to cascade. With no set limit to the number of cascades that can land every single spin could lead to impressive wins.
Whatever the setting or developer, when you play Megaways slots you know you can expect well designed themes and game symbols. The Centurion Megaways slot is set in Ancient Rome so you are on the hunt for Roman symbols as the game’s high payers. A Coin, Helmet, Swords and Colosseum make up the medium paying symbols while Chariot and Centurion game logo take top billing. Landing six of a kind game logos across the game’s six reels is the key to the biggest earnings on a single spin, earning a x50 payout per Way Win. All symbols appear stacked so this could translate into the game’s top jackpot of 250,000 from a single base game spin. Match adjacent symbols left-to-right to collect wins. Wild symbols only appear on the Extra Reel to complete winning combos but in WIld Power Spins and Super Wild Power Spins they also appear on the reels. The Bonus Scatter symbols launch the Bonus Wheel, the Centurion slot’s set of bonus features.
Many Megaways slots offer single simplified bonus features but Inspired’s Centurion Megaways slot boasts several bonus features, including random Reel Modifiers announced by fanfare by the Centurion of the game’s title who pops up from behind a bush to trumpet the arrival of various forms of bonus features.
