Pragmatic Play, a multi-product content provider, has launched Extra Juicy Megaways to expand its existing portfolio of fruit fiesta. The upgraded launch is a sequel that follows Chilli Heat Megaways, a fish-themed Big Bass Bonanza game series.
Chilli Heat Megaways is a title that features a game engine on lease from Big Time Gaming, an Australian developer.
Pragmatic Play Expands Its Portfolio
The earlier version had five reels; however, the upgraded one carried six reels. An increase of one reel reportedly offers higher chances of winning the stakes. Extra Juicy Megaways offers various enhancements and new features for players to enjoy.
One such enhancement is the number of all the symbols changing with every spin. Another upgraded feature includes Ante Bet, a feature that increases the bet stake by nearly 25%. Ante Bet also doubles the chances of activating extra spins.
Overall, players stand a chance to win the game in up to 117,649 ways.
Upgrades and enhancements don’t just stop there. Players who enroll to play the game will also experience an upgraded art design. This is something that players who have played the earlier version will notice. New players may, however, find it equally attractive.
It has lowered the RTP to 96.42% and increased the volatility. This will rarely bother players once they notice that new kiwi and multiplier scatter symbols have been added to the game.
Some of the regular symbols that players can expect to appear on the reels are lemons, cherries, kiwis, grapes, plums, oranges, watermelon, and blackberries.
The two symbols that will pay higher are bells and Lucky7. Both are worth 3.75 times and six times the stake, respectively. Players will only have to land a six on a playline.
A player’s winnings depend on how the symbols align on the adjacent reels. He or she must land three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels. These can start from anywhere and are not necessary from the side or middle of the gameplay.
The only wild to appear in the reels will be a Diamond Scatter. It will only appear in the base game.
Players will enjoy the Bonus Round, which will be activated when at least 4 Diamond Scatters land on a spin. The player will then be rewarded a minimum of 12 spins, something that he or she can choose to either progress directly to the spins or gamble them for more on the reel.
During the Bonus Round, the Diamond symbol will transform into multipliers from 3x to 15x.
Players will now be able to advance directly to extra spin mode through the Buy feature. This feature is in addition to the Ante Bet feature.
Yossi Barzely, the Chief Business Development Officer for Pragmatic Play, stated that the game has built on its existing title and adds exciting mechanics to combine the engaging gameplay with popular themes. He called Extra Juicy Megaways a strong addition to the company’s growing portfolio.
