Let the win multipliers rise to dizzying heights on the slot from Red Tiger Gaming. Mega Rise will take you on a high-volatility journey back to classic slot machines with rising multipliers and two extra features that can lead to wins in excess of 5,000 times your stake. Plus, it is part of the “Daily Jackpot” network from Red Tiger with three must-go progressive jackpots and one unlimited mega jackpot.
Mega Rise is a video slot with three reels, three rows and five fixed pay lines. Wins are paid for three matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Spin the classic reels on desktop or mobile from 0.10 to 40 credits per spin. The game is highly volatile (10/10) with an RTP of 96.08%. However, we know that Red Tiger is offering operators a variety of RTP settings which can be as low as 94.15%. Check the help file to find out which version you will be playing.
As expected with a classic slot, the graphics are stripped down to the very basic. A generic background with strobe lights and a simple game window with traditional pay symbols is all you get on Mega Rise. On the right is the display with the current active win multipliers while the “Daily Jackpot” displays sit on the left. Add to that a casino-style electronic soundtrack and your classic slot journey down memory lane is perfect.
Open the game to find seven regular pay symbols, starting with cherries, lemons, grapes and melons at the low end. They award 0.8x to 2x your stake for a single three of a kind. They are followed by stars, double bells and triple 7s. Hit three on a line to win 3x to 15x your bet.
There are no wild or scatters symbols on this slot, however, it has some special symbols that can have quite an impact on your wins. The black and white Mega Rise chip and the Golden Mega Rise chip will award extra multipliers or locks when they land.
Central to the gameplay on this slot is the Rising Multiplier bar on the right of the game window. It can hold three symbols each marked with the currently active multiplier. The game will assign three random symbols and multipliers when you start-up the game.
Any wins of the symbol visible on the bar landing on a spin will be multiplied by the value shown. Plus, each winning combo will increase the multiplier for the next win with the same symbol by x1 up to x100. Should you hit a win with a symbol that is not in view on the bar, then the symbol on the top of the bar will be removed and the new winning symbol added at the bottom. The multiplier of the removed symbol is reset to the default x1 value.
Red Tiger Gaming added two extras that will have a significant impact on potential winnings. The Mega Rise chip may land on any spin and randomly chooses one of the three symbols on the Rising Multiplier bar. It will then either increase the multiplier by up to x3 in one step or lock the symbol on the bar until you hit win with it. Only two symbols can be locked at any time.
The Golden Mega Rise chip may also land on any spin but is a more powerful version of the standard Mega Rise chip. It will again select a random symbol on the bar and will either increase the win multiplier by up to x7 in one step or add two locks to the symbol. The maximum amount of locks per symbol is three. Each win will remove one lock, freeing the symbol to be removed from the bar when a new symbol combo lands.
Not to forget are the four progressive jackpots on Mega Rise – Super Rapid, Must-Go 1,000, Daily Jackpot, Mega Jackpot. Two are time-limited and will trigger guaranteed before a set date and time while the Super Rapid jackpot will trigger multiple times every day. The third is a ceiling jackpot and will trigger guaranteed before the set jackpot amount is reached. The final and most desirable is the Mega Jackpot is unlimited and can trigger at any time.
The chances of winning a jackpot are relative to your bet size. You will need to hit three jackpot symbols anywhere on the reels in one spin to start off the random jackpot game. The selector will jump between the four jackpots and will award the one which stays highlighted at the end.
Well, Red Tiger seems to be continuing with their strange slot formats which run contrary to today’s feature-rich games. Mega Rise is something for slot purists with a penchant for extreme volatility as you will need high multipliers and then sufficient locks to hit something even just halfway to the maximum win of 6,375x bet. Jackpot chasers will be the second type of players who will be seen spinning the reels.
