ABOUT

Extra Juicy Megaways is Pragmatic Play’s much-anticipated sequel to one of thefan-favorite fruit-themed slots. In many ways, it is a solid game with many new mechanics to freshen the experience while retaining the familiar gaming atmosphere. The upgraded version still offers lots of fun including a fantastic prize at 5000x the wager. 

Betting Options and Bonus Features

Fans will immediately notice one big change that comes with Extra Juicy Megaways and that’s the increase in the grid size. The classic 5x3 grid now has in the Megaways version 6 reels and 5 rows. 

The Pragmatic team kept the simplicity of the original game by making every symbol as easily recognizable and as colorful as ever. Players should expect to see fruits everywhere but they should also keep an eye out for the Bell and the Lucky 7 symbols as these are premiums on the paytable. Furthermore, the number of symbols changes with each spin, creating up to 117,649 ways to win.

The math model is pretty standard. The RTP of the game sits at a respectable 96.42% but it can be increased by using the Ante Bet option to 96.43%. All of this is to combat the rather high volatility of the game. Ultimately, players should not bother themselves with these numbers and look forward to snatching the prize of 5000x.

Extra Juicy Megaways features the Tumblemechanic. Players can score a win by hitting a 3-of-a-kind anywhere on the paylines. The winning symbols are removed from the reel and new ones land in their place. The Tumble mechanic keeps happening until there are no more winning combinations.

Landing 4, 5, or 6 Diamond Scatters will award the players 12, 16, or 20Free Spins respectively with the addition of +4 free spins for each Scatters beyond 6 that are in the players’ view. Furthermore, only players who won from 12 to 20 free spins are offered the option to gamble for more spins on the fortune wheel. 

Each successful attempt on the fortune wheel adds more free spins and each failed one downgrades them. During the bonus round, players should focus on the scatter symbols, as they now carry multipliers anywhere from 3x to 15x the bet. These scatters will remain on the grid until a combination is scored, then all of the multipliers in view are added together to help increase the winning.

Finally, players can pay 100x the stake for a Free Spins buy-in. This option, however, can not be used simultaneously with the Ante Bet option.

Roshtein’s Take

Just like the classic version, the Extra Juicy Megaways slot doesn’t feature Wild symbols which is a little bit of a bummer. However, the addition of the Tumble mechanics is a game-changer and the possible number of winning combinations certainly brings more exciting gaming sessions. 

The juiciest part of the game is in the bonus round. If you want to get the most out of the bonus round, you can try your luck on the fortune wheel. With large multipliers landing during the free spins, Extra Juicy Megaways can be very rewarding. Overall, this is a simple and easy-to-understand game that I enjoy thoroughly.
