HYPERNOVA MEGAWAYS™ SLOT REVIEW
Hypernova Megaways™ is the first of what will hopefully be
many Megaways™ slots from ReelPlay. You may not recognise the name of this
developer, but that is understandable. Until very recently, ReelPlay was known
as Chance Interactive. The Australian casino software provider is aiming to
make their rebranded enterprise instantly recognisable with the launch of their
first MegaWays slot.
The first Megaways™ slot from this developer naturally comes
with a space and stars theme. This game’s theme is designed around a gaseous
nebula and comes complete with gemstones as a part of the imagery on its reels.
The slot can deliver impressive jackpot prizes, albeit non-progressive ones. It
also dishes out winnings based on a trophy collection format of gaming. This
naturally makes it stand out from the many other MegaWays slots which are
popular right now. Let’s find out more about Hypernova Megaways™ in our review
of the ReelPlay slot.

HOW TO PLAY hypernova MEGAWAYS™
HYPERNOVA MEGAWAYS™ FEATURES THE POPULAR CASCADING REELS
Hypernova Megaways™ doesn’t distance itself too much from
the many other titles out there which feature this engine. Anything from 324
paylines up to the Megaways™ standard of 117,649 lines can appear on the reels
of this release. The exact number of lines you’ll get to play with varies on
each spin, based on the size of the symbols on the reels. Those paylines span
six reels and are understandably non-adjustable. Nonetheless, stakes are cheap,
ranging from €0.40 up to €60 a turn
Players will get a good return on their investment if they
strike it lucky. Prizes worth up to £250,000 are there for the taking in this
medium to high variance slot game. The return to player (RTP) percentage in the
game is level with other slots in this genre, standing at 96% in total.
Wilds symbols and scatters both appear in the game. Wilds
can replace all save for those scatters, with the latter used to trigger the
sole bonus round, known as the Jackpot Re-Spin feature. The base game uses the
same cascading reels feature that appears in other Megaways™ slots. In short,
following any win, the winning icons are removed. New ones take their place,
potentially leading to several wins on the spin without a new bet needing to be
placed. There is no multiplier attached to cascading wins in Hypernova Megaways™.
hypernova MEGAWAYS™ BONUS ROUND AND ADDITIONAL FEATURES
WIN ONE OF THE ONE JACKPOTS THROUGH THE JACKPOT RE-SPIN FEATURE ON HYPERNOVA MEGAWAYS™
Players are going to need at least six of the slot’s
scatters to activate the Jackpot Re-Spins bonus round. Any scatters which are
acquired will be held in place, while a total of three re-spins are doled out
to players. Should any new scatters appear during those spins, the re-spins
counter is reset to number three. Players can snap up cash prizes via the
scatters they acquire.
Trophies are also winnable in this round, and these come
with special cash prizes attached to them. They include payouts of 10x, 50x,
250x or even 2,000x your bet when bronze, silver, gold or platinum trophies are
won. The bonus feature ends when scatters/trophies fill the entire screen, or
when you’ve run out of re-spins. At this point, all winnings you have
accumulated will be added together and paid out to your balance.
OUR CONCLUSION ON HYPERNOVA MEGAWAYS™
Hypernova Megaways™ has a unique and dynamic re-spin bonus,
and that is really the key difference between this entry and other Megaways™ slots. The game is a welcome debut for ReelPlay to the world of Megaways™ slots.
Any player eager to play something a touch different from the other titles out
there would do well to give it a go.
