There are plenty of video slots out there on the net which have a medieval theme. Only a handful of theme focus on individual battles. Blueprint Gaming’s Valletta Megaways™ is one of them. This Megaways™ slot has chosen to zone in on the 1565 battle that took place in Malta, between the Knights Hospitaller, and the Ottoman Turks. Known as the Great Siege of Malta, it eventually saw the Christian army win. It is them that Blueprint Gaming have chosen to focus on with this release.
So few historical-themed slots are as realistic as Valletta Megaways™. However, leaving historical accuracy and graphics aside, there is much more to appreciate in this game, not least the Megaways™ engine which Blueprint have borrowed under license from Big Time Gaming. Find out what else awaits you with Valletta Megaways™ in our review of this top slot.

HOW TO PLAY VALLETTA MEGAWAYS™
3 OR MORE BONUS SYMBOLS WILL TRIGGER THE FREE SPIN FEATURE ON VALLETTA MEGAWAYS™
Valletta Megaways™ utilises BTG’s Megaways™ payline structure. This naturally means that there are going to be 6 reels to spin, and upon those reels are going to be many thousand of paylines. You won’t get the 100,000+ lines that some Megaways™ games have like Extra Chilli Megaways™ with this release, but at 15,625 lines in total, the number in Valletta Megaways™ is not exactly shabby.
A spin on the reels of this game will cost players a floor bet of €0.10 a game. However, extending your bets to the opposite end of the wagering range can see stakes of €10 a spin wagered on this release. For that, players can compete to win a non-progressive jackpot worth €250,000. The odds of success are also reasonable in this medium variance release, with the return to player rate set to a fair 96.45%.
Valletta megaways™ bonus round and additional information
Wild symbols can substitute for all barring scatters, and those scatters will trigger a free spin feature if they appear three or more times on the screen in any position. It is worth noting that if you don’t want to wait for the bonus round to be triggered naturally, you can opt to buy the feature straight away, although, at 100x your bet, the price could be considered a little steep for most.
The Valletta Streak feature is an excellent addition to this slot. It can be triggered at random on any spin. Once one of the reels has been lit aflame, it could trigger a winning streak. This re-spin streak could see players land somewhat epic wins. It also appears in the free spin bonus round, albeit somewhat differently.
Back to that free spin bonus now. Players will start with 10, 12, 15 or 20 free spins when they land 3, 4, 5 or 6 of those scatters. In the round, any winning symbols which appear will be held into place, and a series of re-spins can be afforded to players with the Valletta Streak feature. Additional free spins can also be won, giving you lots of ways to maximise your entertainment playing this game. Those of you who have played Genie Jackpots Megaways™ will be familiar with this style of free spin feature.
Players should also note that this feature can be re-triggered, and this is accomplished by filling the reels in their entirety with winning symbols.

Try your luck in our free play mode and see how many streaks you can land in the bonus.
