About Legacy of Ra: MegaWays

Blueprint Gaming has been relentless in their development of MegaWays slots ever since they first acquired the license to Big Time Gaming’s MegaWays engine. Despite its Ancient Egyptian theme (as we’ve seen countless of these types of slots over the years), this game does stand out for its originality. The graphics are certainly as plain as ever for this type of game, but from a feature perspective, there is going on here.

Legacy of Ra: MegaWays doesn’t offer up the full one hundred thousand-plus payline structure you can sometimes get in MegaWays games. Instead, Blueprint has cut the number of ways to win down to around 15,625 in all. Even so, there will still be ample ways for you to win on the reels of this release, with bets costing as little as 10p a turn. Players can wager up to a tenner a spin if they want. Prizes are about average for a MegaWays game.

Special features

As with all MegaWays slots, Legacy of Egypt features a random number of paylines on each spin. Symbol sizes vary but are ultimately responsible for how many paylines you will start with on each turn. Given the payline structure, simply landing identical icons adjacent to one another is enough to win in this game.

Wild symbols appear as pyramid scrolls, and these will naturally substitute for any icons you may need to win, save for scatter icons. Those bonus symbols are responsible for a free spin bonus, although you will need to land at least 3 symbols on the reels to get things moving.

Bonus features

Players can kick start their free spins bonus with 10, 15, 25 or 50 free spins, depending on whether 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters were acquired in the base game. However, before the spins commence, one symbol will be chosen at random to appear as a special stacked icon. This same type of free spin feature can be found in many other top Ancient Egyptian slots, such as Novomatic’s Book of Ra, so we know where the inspiration for this bonus comes from.

These expanding icons can make the difference between winning and losing. The bonus round can also be retriggered should players manage to acquire a handful of scatters on the reels once more. Alternatively, if you can’t wait to trigger the round in the first place, you can always opt to buy this bonus straight from the off. Be warned, though; this will cost you 100x the standard bet, which is a bit pricey, to say the least.

Overview

Legacy of Ra: MegaWays is just one of many Blueprint slots to feature this kind of engine. Given the popularity of MegaWays games, if this one doesn’t do it for you, there are other options available. Moreover, there is no shortage of other Ancient Egyptian slot machines for you to play online, either. This release does a decent job of managing to merge both elements into a fun to play game, though.
