A Look at Pragmatic Play’s Latest Megaways Slot

Pragmatic Play recently unveiled its ELEVENTH Megaways slot – a brand new Samurai Warrior-themed online slot machine called Rise of Samurai Megaways, and it’s now available to play at a growing number of highly recommended South African online casinos, such as and Mansion Casino. No download is required to play this game, which can be launched instantly in your web browser, and you can enjoy playing either on desktop or mobile.

South African players can access this new Megaways slot in the real money mode and free play demo mode and can take one spin of the reels from as little as R4.00 ($/€/£0.20) up to R2,500 ($/€/£125.00) per spin, and the fixed coin jackpot that you can play to win on any lucky spin is worth up to 5,000x times your total stake. The game has 6 regular reels along the bottom, one extra reel that spins horizontally above reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, and with each spin you take, there can be up to 200,704 Megaways (different ways to win per spin).

It also comes with a Tumbling Reels game engine, and the two main bonus features are the Multiplier Wilds feature and Free Spins Bonus. If you look just next to reel 1 (the leftmost reel), you will notice two additional side bet options. One of these options is the Ante Bet, which costs an extra 25% per spin, but DOUBLES your chances of trigger the main bonus feature.

If you’re too impatient to wait for 3 or more Scatter Symbols to trigger the Free Spins Bonus, then you can take advantage of the other side bet that allows you to buy directly in the feature at the start of any spin. However, buying directly in will set you back an extra 100x times your total current stake, which can get a little expensive if you use this side bet too often. The Free Spins Bonus also doesn’t always guarantee that you will win big, so only buy in early if you can really afford it, and only if you’re feeling really lucky.

Without the Ante Bet switched on, you can play from as little as R2.00 up to R2,000, and when it’s switched on, you can play from R4,00 up to R2,500 per spin. When the Free Spins Bonus eventually triggers, you will get to take part in a fun side game just before the bonus begins to determine exactly how many Free Spins you have won.

You will be presented with a huge Wheel of Fortune, which you get to spin once to win prizes. The outer wheel spins to reveal a 2X to 25X Win Multiplier, and the inner wheel spins to reveal 5 to 20 Free Spins. This game also has Tumbling Reels – a game engine that kicks into action each time a new win forms. Winning symbols are removed from the reels, which then causes more new symbols to tumble down from above and fill the empty positions. The same process will keep on repeating, for free, until there are no more new wins in view.
