Get ready to travel to the African savannah on the slot from iSoftBet. Majestic Megaways is taking you on an exhilarating reel safari at sunset to encounter some of the most magnificent mammals roaming the vast plains. Cascading symbols, reactive wins, wild substitutions, mystery symbols and a free spins round with unlimited retriggers and progressive multipliers can lead to wins in excess of 20,000 times your bet.
Majestic Megaways is a video slot with six reels, up to seven rows and 324 to 117,649 ways to win. You can go on a reel safari on desktop or mobile from 0.20 to 20 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96%.
The number of ways is randomly determined for every spin sequence with the game engine selecting between two and seven pay symbols for reels 1 & 6 as well as two to six pay symbols for reels 2 to 5. Additionally, the game has an extra horizontal reel at the top of the game window with four positions, extending from reel two to five, where more symbols appear on every spin.
Wins are paid for two to six matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the left only. The symbols from a winning combination will then explode to make room for new symbols to drop into place, starting a chain reaction that can lead to multiple winners from one spin.. This continues as long as a new winning combination occurs after a reaction.
After taking us to the Mesoamerican jungle on their Megaways debut Aztec Gold Megaways, iSoftbet is heading to the vast plains of the African savannah on this creation. A postcard-perfect scene at sunset with the typical fire colours is opening up when you load the game. The ornamented reels are dominated by some of the most revered mammals you will encounter on a safari, while tribal markings in the background of the pay symbols and a native soundtrack establish an unmistakeable bond to the African continent.

The pay symbols start at the low end with standard card royals from 9 through to A, awarding 1x to 1.75x your stake for single six of a kind. They are followed by water buffalos, rhinos, elephants and the majestic lion. Hit six across the reels to win 2x to 50x your stake. An Acacia tree at sunset marked with the word itself is the wild symbol, appearing in the horizontal reel at the top only and substituting for all regular pay symbols. A shiny diamond is as the scatter while a full moon on a dark night acts the mystery symbol.
After iSoftbet played it safe on their initial Megaways release, taking us on reel adventure through the Mesoamerican jungle on Aztec Gold, we were looking for something more intriguing for their second Megaways game. But they decided to stay on the safe path, taking inspiration from Diamond Mine Megaways, which is maybe slightly disappointing although the game delivers solid Megaways action.
Full moon mystery symbols can appear on all reels on any spin in the base game and free spins. They will reveal one common symbol once the reels have stopped and the dust has settled, including the top paying symbol. However, they cannot contain wild or scatter symbols.
Hitting four diamond scatters within one spin sequence will trigger 12 Free Spins, which can be retriggered. Any further scatter appearing on the same spin will award +5 free spins to the tally, up to a maximum of 27 free spins. During the feature, scatters appear in the top reel only with three granting an extra +5 while four will get you +10 free spins, no limits.
The key to finding your fortune in the African savannah is the unlimited progressive win multiplier in the free spins. It starts at x1 and will increase by x1 after every winning reaction, again, no limits. We have seen multipliers exceeding x30, transforming even smaller hits into big amounts. No doubt, the best moment to score those monster wins on this slot.
The part that makes this iSoftBet creation align more with Blueprint’s follow-up release Diamond Mine Extra Gold Megaways is the feature buy option they call Majestic Bet. It will allow you to buy a Free Spins feature for a one-time amount of 75x your base bet. The following spin will reveal a minimum of four scatters which will get you 12 free spins. The round is played in the same fashion as the standard bonus feature.
While there is nothing inherently wrong with taking inspiration from other popular slots, we expect developers to show us their creativity in their pursuit to deliver exhilarating games to us slot nerds. Sadly, that is not the way it works in iGaming. Some of the most played slots such as Book of Ra or Book of Dead have been copied hundreds of times and there is no end in sight. iSoftbet chose a very popular Megaways title from Blueprint as a basis for their second game in this genre after they signed in 2019 a licensing agreement for the BTG game engine. The result looks good, plays smoothly and delivers a high-volatility reel ride with huge win potential that peaks beyond 20,000 times your bet.
