Wild Turkey Megaways Overview
10 years ago NetEnt released a game called Wild Turkey. Back in the day an amazing release that was pretty popular for a while. And now, just like recently with The Wish Master Megaways, this classic NetEnt slot has received a Megaways makeover. And comes with the very original name, Wild Turkey Megaways.
If you know the original then this new Megaways version is instantly recognizable, because a lot of it has stayed the same. Especially the look of the game.
The slot comes with 6 reels that are between 2 and 7 symbols high during each spin. Giving a maximum of 117.649 Megaways per spin
And just like the original you will find standard card symbols and 4 high paying turkey symbols. But besides these standard paying symbols there are also scatter/wild symbols that can appear on reel 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Wild Turkey Megaways comes with a nice big maximum payout of 10.500 times your bet.
Wild Turkey Megaways Features
Winning combinations are removed and all remaining symbols fall down. New symbols than fall on top and can create the option for another win. This keeps happening until no more new winning combinations appear.
Wild Turkey Feature
During the base game and also during free spins the middle 4 reels might get a glow around them.
When this happens, all turkey symbols that appear on these reels will turn into wild symbols. These are normal wild symbols and don’t count as the other scatter/wild symbols.
Free Spins Feature
When you get 3 scatter/wild symbols during the base game, even if collected during avalanches, you are awarded with 10 free spins.
During free spins when a fully wild reel appears on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5 you are awarded with +2 extra free spins. More than one reel might appear during a spin.
Also the Wild Turkey feature seems to be activated a lot more often during free spins.
I really like it that NetEnt was able to keep the original feel of the game, including some of the fun features. But still manages to create a fun new Megaways slot.
The Wild Turkey feature during the base game is a nice addition and can give some good wins. And the stacked wilds during free spins awarding extra free spins is exactly the same as the original. Which I know a lot of players enjoyed.
Of course the maximum payout is also increased a lot, from 4.000 times bet to 10.500 times bet.
Overall I think NetEnt is really on the right track with re releasing these classic slots with a Megaways mechanism.
Wild Turkey Megaways is highly enjoyable and really makes you feel a bit nostalgic while playing. And of course, the original is also still available, and to be honest, still fun.
