The Apollo Pays slot gives you up to 117,649 ways to win but instead of avalanching wins, you get sticky win respins that can still trigger some huge multipliers.
If you’ve been playing on Big Time Gaming online casinos, you’ll know whether you love Megaways, and this Apollo Pays mobile slot gives you exactly that… but with a twist.
You have 6 reels, with each one giving you anything from 2 to 7 rows of symbols. So yes, you get those magical 117,649 ways to win but unlike the Bonanza slot, there are no avalanching reels. Instead, it swaps the avalanche for sticky win respins.
The winning symbols lock into place, and the rest of the reels re-spin to give you another chance to catch even more symbols. Symbols which are pretty basic: the only thing that gives you ‘ancient greek’ is the beautiful Olympian temple in the background, with cascades of water and bright marble.
Apollo is the wild, but otherwise, you have 4 high-paying gems and then Ace to 9. Nothing that stands out, but that can be ok when you have so many possible ways to win.
We thought we would miss the avalanching reels, but in honesty, we didn’t. Mostly because every time you get a win, those symbols lock into place, and every other single open space re-spins.
These re-spins continue for as long as you keep getting winning symbols. Sometimes you even get more symbols spin on a reel that is locked with winning symbols, giving you even more ways to win.
The wild helps along the way, but this is all about celebrating those gorgeous respins that make one bet feel like 10. We loved it in the Jack Hammer slot, we loved it in the Shield of Athena review, and we love it here.
We’ve come this far and we still haven’t mentioned the best bit: 3 scatters will trigger 10 free spins where on every win the multiplier will increase by one.
So exactly the same as with the Rick and Morty Megaways slot or the Fluffy Favourite Megaways review. The only difference here is that because the primary feature is respins, rather than avalanches, the multipliers don’t feel like they go as high, but that’s not true.
You can get over 5,000x your bet if you manage to keep those re-spins coming, or re-trigger the free spins with a further 3 scatters. And that’s worth playing for.
Because every respin will increase the multiplier. The Apollo Pays slot free spins feel like they go on for longer than most of the bonus games we’ve played on normal 5 reel video slots.
However, one word of warning: if you get over 25x your bet you’ll have a chance to gamble the big win to go into the free spins. Be careful, there’s only a 50/50 chance you might win, and it may be worth your while taking the win and playing a little longer to catch the free spin normally, or walking away.

Win Exchange: You can trigger the free spin by exchanging a big win for the change to trigger.
Megaways slots: On any one spin the number of rows will change spin to spin. This could leave only 2 symbol up to 7 symbols high, giving you a different number of wins each spin.
Sticky Wins: Whenever you get a win, those symbols will stay sticky on screen and the other symbols will respins, with the reels stuck in the number of rows as the winning symbols are set up. If the reels have no winning symbols, the rows can change spin to spin. The respins will continue until no more winning symbols show up, and then the win is paid out. A respin can also add an extra symbol to any reel.
Wilds: Apollo is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except the scatter.
Scatter and Free Spin with Unlimited Multiplier: The harp is the scatter symbol, and 3 will give you 10 free spins. You get +2 spins for each scatter. Every time you get a win, the multiplier will go up by one. 3 or more scatters in the free spins award 4 additional free spins.
It's impossible not to love a Megaways slot game with one of our favorite game features: sticky wins. It makes the base game more exciting, whilst still giving you those great multipliers in the free spins.
The Apollo Pays slot showcases why Big Time Gaming have become such a big name - you have big win features and familiar mechanics that combine to give you some olympic spins.
We wish the reels were a little bit bigger, as they look so small on android phones and iPhones, but it was such a small nitpicky detail it wasn't enough to take away a star from this Apollo Pays slot review.
If you love Megaways, go find this Apollo Pays game at one of our best slots sites, you won't regret it.
