Montezuma Megaways™ is a slot from WMS that sees the software developer give their original slot Montezuma a makeover and a Megaways™ upgrade. This is not the first title that Scientific Games have adapted to the popular gaming engine which they have under license from Big Time Gaming, other favourites in their catalogue have also received an enhancement through the Megaways™ mechanic such as Rainbow Riches Megaways™.
Upholding its Aztec theme, all symbols remain the same from the original version of this slot, and that means Montezuma himself is the most influential and highest paying symbol on the game. Wins up to an impressive 12,500x your stake can be won on Monty Megaways™, but does that mean it's better than the original? Let's find out more.

MONTEZUMA MEGAWAYS™ SLOT FREE PLAY - DEMO PLAY
HOW TO PLAY Montezuma Megaways™
Staged across 6 reels Montezuma Megaways™ has the ability through the Megaways™ engine to generate anywhere between 324 and 117,649 paylines on any spin of the reels. Players can partake in some of this action for as little as 20p a play, up to the maximum stake of £20, with plenty of choice in between these two amounts to suit any playing budget.
Our usual focus on the top paying symbol sees Monty Megaways™ offer 50x your stake for a 6 of a kind win with the top symbol, this matches other slots in the niche like Diamond Mine Megaways™ and is considered a very decent return. Unfortunately the remaining symbols on the paytable pay far less than other slots in the Megaways™ series, and this is likely to be noticed especially during the base game where balances can be depleted quickly at the best of times.
Montezuma Megaways™ falls into the high variance category and has an RTP of 95.92%, this is slightly under the average for the whole of the Megaways™ series but certainly not the lowest to be found in the niche.
Montezuma Megaways™ BONUS ROUNDS AND ADDITIONAL FEATURES
MONTEZUMA MEGAWAYS™ INCLUDES CASCADING REELS AND MULTIPLYING WHEELS
WMS incorporated the cascading reels engine into Montezuma Megaways™ and this is plays a big part in the free spin bonus, as well as helping to provide some wins during base game play. When this mechanic is in action all symbols in winning combinations are removed from the reels and replaced with new ones, this continues until no further wins can be made.
Three or more scatters landing in view will trigger the free spin round and take you to the bonus wheel where you will be randomly awarded anything up to 30 spins. The bonus round itself consists of an unlimited multiplier that has been seen countless times in titles such as Return of Kong Megaways™, a successful win and reel cascade will see your multiplier increase by x1 in value.
If during the free spin bonus two or more scatter symbols land then a multiplying wheel will appear, whatever number this lands on will be added to your current multiplier giving it a nice little boost. If two or more scatters land on the very last spin of your bonus then the total value of your free spins will be multiplied by whatever number the wheel stops on.
Keep an eye out for the respin wheel, this can appear on both the base game and free spin bonus at the end of a non winning spin, wilds will appear on the respin wheel above the reels and give you a second chance of a win.
Very much like the original version of this slot Montezuma Megaways™ offers you a bonus guarantee, if your feature does not pay at least 30x your stake then the slot will pay you that amount, so at least you can't get a zero paying bonus.
OUR CONCLUSION ON Montezuma Megaways™
Most of us probably get nervous when we hear that an old classic game is going to get a revamp, especially when it's an upgrade to Megaways™. Rainbow Riches Megaways™ probably didn't have the impact that Scientific Games were hoping for, so what about Montezuma?
The upgrade actually works quite well in our opinion and does add more depth to the game, but as we mentioned earlier apart from the top symbol the values of the others on the paytable are quite disappointing. This could well be due to the huge multipliers that can be awarded throughout the bonus game, but it still makes it hard to get excited about a 6 of a kind premium picture symbol win that pays less than 1x stake, let alone the suited symbols that pay a pittance.
A plus point is that this slot does run much smoother than anything that SG gave released in the Megaways™ niche to date, so it looks as though the standard of their slots in this area of the market is improving.
