Mystery Reels MegaWays Slot Introduction
With MegaWays, the Mystery Reels slot really is anyone’s guess. If you’re a fan of new online slots that use old fruit machine elements, this is your game. As an upgrade to the 2017 Mystery Reels original, Red Tiger adds in the MegaWays formula with more fruit than ever before. If you don’t know about MegaWays, it’s a random reel modifier system that allows any given spin to produce a different number of symbols across the reels.
What we like? It’s a big tribute to arcade fruit machine games with lucky 7s, horseshoes, bells and fruits on the reels. You can play from £0.20 to £10 a spin. Although a complicated reel set, it’s a simple game with lots of charm. A retro soundtrack fits the bill while clunky animation adds more homage to the 1980s fruity era. And about MegaWays, we can’t help but approve. Starting at 64 ways to win, Mystery Reels can pull off 117,649 pay lines!
As for game features, it’s the pay table that’s got huge capacity, with payouts for up to 6 x symbols. There’s a symbol drop avalanche feature, mystery symbol and a free spins bonus wheel with added gamble option. You’ll start with 8 free spins, but you can gamble and win up to 20 free spins. And with retriggers available, did I mention multipliers. It’s all in here.

Random Mystery Symbol
Free Spins Bonus
Looking closer at the slots features, it’s all about the MegaWays random reel modifier system. This in itself gives Mystery Reels enormous identity. It’s an arcade-style 80’s throwback fruit machine to be reckoned with, and one worth playing. Ways to win is a constant surprise, covering a broad range of 64 – 117,649 possible win line combinations.
Now that we’ve digested those crazy figures, let’s consider the features that will pack those ways to win. One, cascading reels mean winning combinations explode making room for further possible wins on the reels. Two, randomly triggered mystery symbol that clones itself to reveal a winning combination. Three, a free spins bonus round. This has a built in bonus wheel and gamble feature, including possible unlimited free spins and multipliers.
I’m not going to make this complicated and explain the whole MegaWays feature concept. But one feature happens after a win, another is random and the other requires 3 x bonus symbols to appear anywhere on the reels at the same time. Mystery Reels MegaWays is capable of generating some big wins thanks to a free spins bonus with endless opportunities. Another positive, if you gamble and lose your free spins by spinning the wheel, you’ll always get at least four freebies.
As far as online fruit machines go, Mystery Reels with MegaWays is one of the most able in terms of ways to win. This is one of those new casino games you play for the free spins alone, a bonus with its own gamble wheel and one with unlimited potential. With its 80s pop soundtrack, familiar fruity symbols and random reel formations; Red Tiger blends the power of MegaWays with an old-school favourite. Our verdict, if you like retro games and arcade-era slots, this one has the modern upgrades that make £0.20 a bet potentially worthwhile.
