The online slots mechanic with enough paylines to rival the number of items on a magic potion ingredient list is back once again at our fabulous bingo site, this time attached to Perfect Potions Megaways. Most of the slots online using the Megaways mechanic have always brought their own slice of magic, but how does this latest release match up? Well, there’s a very capable free spins feature that can be triggered via scatter symbols for starters, while you’ll also have reel modifiers causing reels to expand or turning entire reels wild. Ready to hear a little more?
Perfect Potions Megaways is set in a druid's dwelling, although many would also interpret this guy as a wizard. Regardless, no matter what you want to call him, he's all about concocting magic potions. Some of his magic is also spilling over onto the 6 reels, and as we have Megaways involved, there are up to 96,040 paylines in play at any given time. One of the elements of this slot you'll like, whether in the base game for bonus play, is the cascading reels. This sees winning symbols removed from the reels, followed by existing icons falling into the empty spaces and then new icons falling in to fill the reels.
If you like choosing your online slot games based on the largest possible reward, then Perfect Potions Megaways will be a casino game you'll find tantalizing. The most all players will be able to potentially win is up to 72,000x your stake. That has to be one of the highest we've ever seen. Understandably, the volatility of Perfect Potions Megaways is high with possibilities like that, so you'll want to be strategic when choosing your stake, with the minimum being 0.20 and the maximum 50.00 per stake.
The symbols are exactly what we'd expect, similar to most Megaways slot machines. The lower-paying icons are playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A, while the higher-paying ones are a skull, eyeballs, a frog, a valuable gem and the old magic man.
There are four extra symbols that can land at any time on the reels. The wild is perhaps the most obvious, as this ever-present icon substitutes all regulars to possibly form winning combinations. There's also the bonus symbol and two potion symbols.
The unique aspect of Perfect Potions Megaways is the appearance of red or blue potions. A potion icon, either blue or red, can appear above reels 2 - 6 before each round. If a win occurs and winning symbols are removed, the potion icon will fall into the reels taking up a place. You want to get enough consecutive wins so that the potions reach the very bottom of the reel they fell into. The blue potion reaching the bottom will double the reel’s height and fill it with symbols for increased chances of rewards. The red potion reaching the bottom turns the reel completely wild.
Landing 4, 5 or 6 scatters in Perfect Potions Megaways will award 10, 12 or 15 free spins. This is a little harder to trigger than most online slots, as the minimum required scatters is 4 and not 3.
The potions reaching the bottom of the reels is a nice touch. And at least waiting for them to reach the bottom, generate more excitement than the average slot might do. Cascading reels do see the potions move pretty regularly, but the free spins are still where the possible wins will pack the biggest punch.
