How to Win Big in Madame Destiny Megaways – Free Spins
3, 4, 5, or 6 scatters trigger free spins. The number of scatters triggering the bonus does not affect the number of free spins or multiplier awarded. However, triggering with 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatters pays out a cash award of 5x, 10x, 20x, or 100x the bet size.
The number of free spins and the win multiplier awarded are both decided by the spin of a wheel. The wheel contains an inner and an outer wheel, both containing numbered segments; one for free spins and one for win multipliers. The segments which line up with the arrow at the bottom of the wheel when it comes to rest determine the number of spins you’ll play and the win multiplier which will be applied to
ALL wins. 3-6 scatters retriggers the bonus round where you’ll be able to spin for more spins and a new win multiplier.

For those unfamiliar with Megaways slots, the number of paylines, or in this case ‘Megaways’, changes every spin. Reels 1 and 6 have up to 7 symbols and reels 2-5 contain up to 8 symbols. The number of symbols on each reel changes every spin. The maximum number of Megaways occurs when all 6 reels land their maximum number of symbols. As winning combinations are formed by 3 or more identical symbols on any adjacent reels from the leftmost reel, the highest number of Megaways in this instance is 7x8x8x8x8x7, or 200,704.
Symbols ‘Tumble’ onto the reels rather than spin. After a win is added to your balance, the winning symbols disappear to be replaced by symbols tumbling from above. A winning combo caused by this Tumble is often called a reaction win. Reaction wins continue until no new winning combo is formed, after which the spin ends.
The appearance of a wild symbol, played by Madame Destiny herself, in a winning combo doubles the total win value in both the base and bonus games.
A switch to the left of the gameboard allows you to place an ‘Ante Bet’. An additional 25% is added to the bet total which increases the number of scatters on the reels enough to double the chances of triggering free spins. Winning combination prizes remain the same.
Madame Destiny Megaways also has a Buy Free Spins option where, for 100x your chosen stake, you can bypass the base game to go straight to free spins. This option is not available when playing from the UK, or when using the Ante Bet.
Look and Feel of Madame Destiny Megaways
Madame Destiny Megaways is only identifiable from the original game by virtue of the size and shape of the reel set. Other than that, the background scene and animations are identical to the 2018 slot. Of course, things like the ante and buy free spins buttons are also new, but don’t affect the overall aesthetic. The artwork and animations are top drawer, and the eery, mysterious music is very much on brand. The symbols are also identical, with royals 10-A as lows and the spooky trinkets and animals as highs. The Owl is once again the highest paying symbol, this time awarding 20x the bet size for 6 on adjacent reels. See the full paytable below (based on a €1 bet size).
This game joins the previous month’s Christmas Carol Megaways with its huge maximum Megaways total of 200,704. However, I found it infinitely less appealing, despite its almost identical RTP. The main reason is that there is no increasing win multiplier in free spins, the multiplier set by the wheel stays constant throughout. Regardless of whether the overall likelihood of winning being the same, the increasing multiplier makes for a vastly more exciting free spins experience which is sorely missing here. Also, with Christmas Carol Megaways you could choose how many spins and which multiplier to begin with or try pot luck if you fancied it. Here, pot luck is the only option, and the frustration of potentially being awarded a couple of spins with a 2x multiplier with no chance of improvement (a retrigger being the only exception) is palpable. Furthermore, we’re used to seeing Megaways slots with 10,000x, 20,000x, or even 50,000+ max win potential, so to see Madame Destiny Megaways top out at just 5,000x is also a little deflating.
It’s fair to say this isn’t my favourite Megaways slot by a long shot. If you want to play a 200k+ Megaways slots with Pragmatic Play, head back to December 2020’s Christmas Carol Megaways.
