Design and Symbols
Montezuma Megaways was an innovative design that comes with vibrant and detailed symbols to enhance the player’s experience. At the top of the main reels, you will see an additional set of reels that arch over the top of reels 2 to 5. The “top reel” essentially helps to contribute to the winning combinations on the main reels by acting as an extra row for reels 2-5.
The highest paying symbols are beautifully designed and consist of a tomb, a compass, a male and female Indian tribe member, a hawk and a dragon symbol as well as an Indian feather headdress and a golden mask.
The lower paying symbols are you typical J, Q, K, and A which are each illustrated with either a diamond, crown or flag.
Montezuma Megaways was a carefully designed slot game, which is packed full of great features. To find out what you can expect during your gameplay in the jungle with the tribe, continue reading below.

When you land a winning combination on the main reels the winning symbols will explode and disappear. To fill the space of the winning symbols new symbols will fall into place, filling the gaps. The symbols do not, however, transfer between the two different reel sets.
At any point during a non-winning spin, the Montezuma Respin Wheel has the ability to randomly respin, in order to give you an extra chance to land a winning combination. As the wild symbol is only available on the Respin Wheel, this also provides you with an alternative chance to land a Wild symbol to boost your winning line.
To activate the free spins round you are required to land 3 or more Scatter symbols on the reels and the amount of spins awarded is determined by a single spin of the wheel. When the free spins round is activated, an alternate set of reels will be used and two or more scatter symbols award the Montezuma Multipliers. By receiving a Montezuma Multiplier will reward you a spin on the Montezuma Multipliers Wheel.
The Montezuma Multipliers Wheel contains the different values of the multipliers and the result of the spin will be added to the current Megaways multiplier which was applied to the previous spins. When you first start the free spins round a Megaways win multiplier valued at x1 will automatically be awarded.
Megaways Multiplier Wheel
The Megaways Multiplier is a Wheel multiplier that increases by 1 each time a winning combination is awarded and causes a single cascade of symbols. The Megaways Multiplier Wheel can be triggered in the base game or during the free spins round. If you trigger the Megaways Multiplier on your last spin during the free spins round then the total win for the entire Free Spins is multiplied by the multiplier shown on the multiplier wheel.
The Buy Pass feature enables you to directly access the free spins feature, however, it comes at a cost. To buy the Buy Pass feature you are required to pay 85 times your total bet. When you use the Buy Pass feature to trigger the free spins round, the feature is played at the total coin value which was selected before the feature was activated. One downfall to buying the free spins round is that no trigger win is awarded and you can not purchase another Buy Pass feature during the free spins round.
This helps to reduce the cost of the Buy Pass feature to trigger the free spins round. If you do not use the Bonus Bank by the end of your gameplay, the funds will be added to your balance. Additionally, wins can only be added to the Bonus Bank during the base game, excluding any winnings generated from the free spins round.
- Bank Wins Off - This means all wins are added to the balance
- Bank all Wins - This means all wins are added to the Bonus Bank
- Bank Small Wins - This means that only wins which are 3x your stake or less will be added to the Bonus Bank
With the new year just starting I was interested to see what SG Digital had to get us going. When I first entered the game, I was slightly unsure what to expect as the theme can relate to several other games, however, I was taken back by the great quality and design of the symbols and slot.
During my time playing, I was pleasantly surprised by how many features the game had to offer and Montezuma Megaways turned out to be an exciting and thrilling game to play. Montezuma Megaways is one of those games that once you get started you do not want to stop.
