Does the Royal Mint mobile Megaways slot print out money? It may feel like it, but be careful, it takes coins to make coins in this Megaways game.
The Royal Mint, for anyone living outside of the UK, is where the British Government make all the pennies and pounds. Coins come out, but did you know it’s not cheap?
Welcome, welcome to a world of education as you enter the Royal Mint Megaways slot and try and figure out how to get those heavy coins in your pocket.
But first you have to get into the building, all marbled columns, gilded walls and tall windows. You won’t actually see any coins, but gems and high card symbols such as Ace to 10. They’ve mixed luxury with banking. It’s a little odd, but once you enter, you don’t care.
So you know they know what they are doing. This time around, you get not one but two extra horizontal reels on the top and bottom of the game, giving you more chances of getting more wins in the base game.
And you get lots of wins in the base game thanks to this, plus the fact you get wild symbols in those extra reels. It’s fun to play, but you have to remember that the wins won’t get you much. This is a very volatile game and the free spins are when you get to enter the bank.
So how do you get to the point where this Royal Mint Megaways slot starts printing money? Well, it’s all about the free spins.
4 scatters give you 12 free spins, and every single win will increase the multiplier by 1. And you know what the really good news is? This is an avalanching reel slot, so on every win (base game or free spins), the symbols explode and more come tumbling down above.
So 12 free spins can turn into 20 free spins, and every single win increases that sweet multiplier. But what the Royal Mint video slot does best is to surprise you with the ‘enhanced free spins’.
This is where you collect gold bars for every 3 scatters hit in the base game. At this point, the free spins will start at 2x and increase by 2 on each spin. It doesn’t happen enough, maybe once every 200/300 spins, but it’s a nice extra that Megaways games like Montezuma Megaways or Piggy Riches Megaways don’t have.
It’s always nice to be able to give you a slot review where you get something more than just the standard 117,649 ways to win.
