Valletta Megaways Gameplay
If you are familiar with the Megaways™ winning system you probably know how it works. You win every time you land identical symbols on adjacent positions from left to right. The win ways are entirely independent in each spin – the number of symbols per reel determines how many they will be. The symbols on the grid include a knight in armour which is the wild. It replaces any missing symbols except the bonus scatter.
The yellow lion on a red background – the Coat of arms of Valletta, is the best paying symbol in the game. If you land from 2 to 6 of it you can win from 0.5 to 25 times your stake. The map pays from 0.5 to 5 times your stake for 3 to 6 symbols. The Maltese flag on a shield has a value of 0.3 to 2.5 times your bet when you get from 3 to 6 of it. The sword is another of the high-paying symbols which returns as much as the shield.
On the low end are the royal cards from 9 to A. The A, K, and Q give you from 0.2 to 1 time your stake. This is when scoring from 3 to 6 adjacent from left to right. The 9, 10, and J have the lowest payout – from 0.1 to 0.5 times your stake for landing 3 to 6 neighboring ones in a spin. In the base game at random intervals, you can see the Maltese Flag waving on the playing screen. It can activate one of the 3 features available in the base game only. These are Valletta Streak, Bonus Megaways™ Feature Chance, and Valletta Megaways™ Slot Bonus Wild Feature.
During Valletta Streak, the symbols that are part of a winning combination get locked on their positions. Then, you will get a free re-spin trying to add more identical symbols to the locked ones. This can give you a better win. So, you can score many independent wins on different areas on the playing grid with this feature. The reels will continue to re-spin for free until you score more wins. This will stop when you fail to make a new winning combination or fail to increase an existing one.
The Bonus Megaways™ Feature Chance you can trigger when you see bonus symbols on the reels. Then, you will have the reels they landed on highlighted in flames. On these reels you will have bonus symbols landing although this doesn’t guarantee that you will get enough of them activate the free spin feature. But it increases your chances of winning the bonus round substantially.
The Valletta Megaways™ Slot Bonus Wild Feature is another random one. It adds more wild symbols to the reels and they will lock in place consecutively. You will then have the opportunity to fill a winning combination in many ways. Through the wilds, you can connect the symbols from reel 1 all the way to reel 6 and get massive payouts.
