Mr Macau Review
After the Portuguese made gambling legal in Macau back in the mid-nineteenth century, the former colony became one of the gambling capitals of the world.
Known as the Monte Carlo of Asia, it served as an inspiration for Betsoft to create the release titled Mr Macau. Bringing all the Oriental glitz and glamour to the reels, the developer hopes to get the players’ attention.
- A high RTP of 97.07%
- Payouts going up to 4,338x your bet
- Stunning visuals that help create an immersive playing experience
Mr Macau may not appear charming enough to make us follow him into a casino, but his demeanour perfectly suits the game’s theme.
There are lots of red and gold colours in the design of the online slot, together with shiny casino signs. The Betsoft 2021 release is packed with features, whose list includes sticky Wilds, Mr Macau’s Wild Boost, and Triple 7 Free Spins.
In addition, all paying symbols can turn sticky at random, awarding a respin along the way. With a bit of luck, you can claim prizes reaching 4,338x the bet.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
Mr Macau boasts a casino theme mixed with a touch of the Orient. We like its appearance, as all the colours and the lights perfectly match the vibes of the bustling Asian city.
And while the Main Game takes part in front of a luxurious resort, the bonus round will take you straight to the casino floor.
The game is played on a reel set consisting of five reels and three rows, with a total of twenty paylines ready to deliver prizes. A standard reel setup comes with simple rules for getting paid.
You’ll need at least three symbols of the same kind to form a winning combination and receive a payout of up to 120x the bet. Just keep in mind that Mr Macau pays left to right.
The first feature that will draw your attention is Stick and Respin.
It’s randomly triggered after a winning spin, turning one of the symbols sticky and awarding one or more respins until the chosen icon forms a winning combination.
Wilds can replace all symbols, except the Scatter, to help players form additional winning combinations. They can become sticky on any of the reels.
Once on the reels, they will stay in place for the next two spins, significantly increasing the chances of forming a win.
Another random feature is Wild Boost, although this one can only be activated after a non-winning spin. When active, this function improves the odds of landing sticky Wilds, which increases the possibility of winning.
Mr Macau Free Spins
The game’s bonus round is available in two flavours, depending on the number of Scatters used to unlock the feature.
Simultaneously landing three Scatters on reels 2, 3, and 5 awards ten free spins, while all Wilds appearing during the bonus round stay in place until the feature comes to an end.
If you trigger Free Spins with four Scatter, you’ll activate the highest tier round. It will also start with ten spins, but the difference is that sticky Wilds bring multipliers of up to 3x with them.
When a winning combination is formed with more than one multiplier, all respective values will be multiplied together.
Unfortunately, no matter the version of the bonus round your trigger, you won’t be able to retrigger it.
Where To Play Mr Macau?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
Mr Macau stands out among its market rivals for the payout percentage it brings. At 97.07%, it’s well above the industry average and is also one of Betsoft Gaming’s titles with the highest RTP.
When choosing your bet, you won’t be able to select the number of active lines. The wagering starts as low as $0.12, while the maximum amount you can spend per spin is only $20.
The Betsoft title has a medium variance, meaning that payouts are well balanced.
That makes Mr Macau suitable for all types of players, from newbies to seasoned high rollers. With a bit of luck, all of them can win up to 4,338x their bet.
Although the theme is superficial and maybe too glitzy, Mr Macau has lots of positives. We enjoyed the game’s random features, while the bonus round with sticky Wilds and multipliers even further added to the excitement.
In addition, its high payout percentage will not go undetected, while payouts of up to 4,338x the bet promise a rewarding experience.
However, the Main Game is far from being too appealing, as it offers wins of only 120x the wager. Anyway, we’d give it 3 out of 5 stars.
