Pragmatic Play – Extra Juicy Megaways – Free Slot Game

Although it’s a pretty decent fruit-themed release, ’s original, Extra Juicy, wasn’t too memorable. They decided to keep the win-every-reel payment system, which we certainly don’t mind, and all winning reel symbols are removed via the tumble mechanic. This is a refreshing twist that only enhances the dynamic reel experience.

We’ve already pretty much summed up the base game with the above, but you can expect mostly boost wins from the main game anyway. With 117,649 ways to win, anything can happen, but how often do you see a maximum Megaways win. Things are improved by the combined multiplier scatters that accumulate per fall sequence in the bonus round, and that’s how you’re most likely to get closer to the 5,000x potential .

Bonus features on Extra Juicy Megaways slot

The Ante Bet feature can be turned on and off between spins in the main game, allowing you to pay 25% more per spin to double your bonus round chances. Winning combinations can start on any reel from left to right, and the fruity symbols pay between 0.6 and 6 times your bet for 6 of a kind.

The Tumble Win mechanic plays out a bit differently than you would expect from this engine. Not only are the winning symbols removed from the grid, but all the symbols on the reels that are involved in a win are actually removed in one go. Thus, you get a completely new set of symbols, and the tumble feature continues as long as you win.

The bonus round is triggered when you land 4, 5 or 6 scatters anywhere in sight, and this awards 12, 16 or 20 free spins respectively. You also get +4 extra spins on top of the 20 per additional triggering scatter over 6. If you win 20 free spins or less, you can play for more free spins via the pre-bonus wheel of fortune. However, a loss can reduce your number of spins down to zero, so be careful.

The diamond scatters are converted into multiplier symbols during the bonus round and have random multiplier values between x3 and x15. The semi-sticky multiplier diamonds stay in place until the end of a fall sequence, and their respective values are then added to increase the total fall win.

Finally, players outside the UK and all eligible can use the bonus buy feature. This will give you back 100 times your bet, and the ante bet feature must be disabled first. You will then get a spin that is guaranteed to land at least 4 scatters.

The 200 Spins Extra Juicy Megaways Experience

You get about a minute of base play, including some wins, before we buy the bonus round at 1:11 in the 3:52 minute highlights video. The feature starts at 1:32, and we didn’t risk anything on the pre-feature gamble. We got at least 12 free spins, and you can see for yourself by clicking the play button below.

Rating Conclusion

The base game may not look that exciting at first glance, but it comes with two tweaks that set it apart from most other Megaways engine versions. The ability to win from any reel gives you a sense of freedom and opens up the dynamic reel experience in a way that we liked. Combined with the fact that all symbols are removed from winning reels, you’re left with a somewhat different and refreshing take on an engine that, paradoxically, can feel a bit stagnant from release to release.

Of course, you’ll most likely need the semi-sticky combo multiplier scatter bonus round to do significant damage, though that damage can’t exceed the somewhat moderate 5,000x win cap. Next to the advertised 60,000x potential of the original, it looks kind of ridiculous, but we all know Pragmatic Play has worked hard to break with its history of over-the-top potential. Overall, this is a decent, fruity Megaways episode, but we would suggest keeping 10,000x as the minimum potential when using the licensed dynamic reels engine.
