Dynamite Riches Megaways Review
It appears that Red Tiger enjoys giving its games a Megaways makeover. That’s what the renowned developer did with Dynamite Riches Megaways, a remake of the Dynamite Riches title from 2019.
The redo has kept the original game’s progress feature and brought a wide selection of new features to make this mining-themed online slot even more exciting. Get ready to go down the mining pit and dig. Who knows what riches you can unearth.
- Medium variance with a top prize of 7,000x bet
- Up to 117,649 ways to win
- Players can use four bonus features, win multipliers, the feature unlock progress bar, and free spins
Since the original’s visuals were impressive, developers didn’t want to change anything. The action takes place in a deep mining pit surrounded by rocks. You’re in for a lot of digging, but with a bit of luck, it’s possible to find plenty of prizes.
Four bonus features, win multipliers, the Free Spins bonus round, and the feature unlock progress bar will be there to help you take home the top payout worth 7,000x the bet, which is a pretty solid jackpot for the game’s medium volatility.
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
Most mining-themed games look alike. However, that doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing. Dynamite Riches Megaways is visually unchanged compared to the original, taking players deep underground while a honky-tonk track plays in the background.
Once you go down, everything is pretty much as you might expect, but the developer made sure that prizes on offer give this title a distinctive touch.
You’ll play the game on a standard Megaways grid. It means six reels with two to seven symbols on each of them, as well as up to 117,649 ways to win instead of good ol’ paylines.
To start getting paid, you must land at least six matching icons on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost one.
Whenever a Dynamite Wild symbol lands on the reel, it will be collected in the Feature Unlock Progress Bar, situated above the grid.
There are four bonuses to be unlocked, with each one available in a specific order. You’ll need sixty Wilds to unlock them all, and after the final feature has been turned on, they will stop appearing.
The Feature Unlock Progress Bar is split into four sections, each corresponding to a specific multiplier. Fifteen Wilds are needed to fill an entire section.
Fifteen Wilds triggers the TNT feature, removing all low-value symbols from the grid. They will return to the reels if you activate the Free Spins round.
Thirty Wild activate Golden Wilds, which land across the four middle reels.
Forty-five Wilds award a multiplier, whose values can be 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x. Multiplier values can be stacked up to reach 20x. Any multiplier value is carried over to the Free Spins if the bonus round is activated.
To unlock the Mega Wild feature, you need to collect all sixty Wild. Up to four Mega Wilds land on the middle four reels, covering an entire reel and delivering a multiplier of up to 7x.
Dynamite Riches Megaways Free Spins
Scatters can land anywhere on the reels, with three or more needed to trigger the bonus round. Depending on the number of Scatters used to unlock the feature, you can win between eight and fourteen spins.
Every winning combination you form during the bonus will increase the win multiplier, going up to 20x. Landing three Scatter adds four more spins to the count, with any extra Scatter awarding one additional spin.
Where To Play Dynamite Riches Megaways?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
The RTP is 95.70%, which is slightly below the current industry average.
Betting starts as low as $0.10, while the maximum amount of money you can spend on every round is $20.
The game’s top prize is worth 7,000x your total stake. It’s a generous prize for a medium variance title. If you’re looking to win more, we advise you to find a more volatile game.
If you haven’t played the original, then the new release will look more impressive. The reason for it is simple, and it’s called Megaways.
You also have an increasing win multiplier during the bonus round and Mega Wilds covering entire reels. However, we feel the game hasn’t taken advantage of Megaways’ potential.
All in all, it’s a decent sequel, although we could have seen more. Sorry, Dynamite Riches Megaways, it’s only 3 out of 5 stars for you.
