Let me first start by saying that millions of sharks are being killed every year. Which is a real shame, stupid, needless and also very dangerous. Sharks are vital to our oceans. If you want to know more and maybe donate to a solid cause, check out The Shark Trust or Shark Stewards.
Now onto the game.
Mega Don Overview
Play’n Go has released their new weekly slot game. And this time it’s Mega Don.
The name might seem like the game revolves around a mafia boss, but that’s not the case. In fact it’s a game with a shark theme. And the name Mega Don probably refers to a megalodon, which was the biggest known shark species known to men. Which has gone extinct a long, long time ago.
The game comes with 5 reels which are each 4 symbols high and comes with 1024 ways.
The game uses all sorts of different fish and three sharks as symbols. All these normal symbols can appear stacked on all reels. You will also find wild and scatter symbols on all reels.
Mega Don comes with a big maximum payout of 10.000 times your bet.
Mega Don Features
During base spins up to three random low paying fish symbols can be selected to be upgraded.
All instances of these fish appearing on the reels will be upgraded to one of the three high paying shark symbols.
Shark Feast (free spins feature)
Three or more scatter symbols will trigger the free spins feature. The more scatter symbols appearing the more free spins with more upgrading symbols.
- 3 scatter symbols will award 6 free spins with 1 upgrading symbol
- 4 scatter symbols will award 9 free spins with 2 upgrading symbols
- 5 scatter symbols will award 12 free spins with 3 upgrading symbols
The chosen upgrading symbols will stay active during all free spins. And will work the same way as during Snack Time.
You can trigger more free spins and activate more upgrading symbols, up to a maximum of 6, which are all low paying fish symbols.
3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols during free spins will add
- 3 free spins and 1 additional upgrading symbol
- 6 free spins and 2 additional upgrading symbols
- 9 free spins and 3 additional upgrading symbols
When playing Mega Don you instantly think of Razor Shark by Push Gaming. Because that’s probably the most recognizable shark themed slot game out there. But the games are very different.
Mega Don uses symbol upgrades as the main focus of the game. Both in the base game and the free spins feature. I really like bonuses that use this and I think Mega Don also uses it in a great way.
Of course you want more than 1 symbol during free spins to really get some nice wins. But luckily the game can retrigger.
Overall Mega Don is another solid release from Play’n Go. It might not reach the heights Razor Shark did, but I think a lot of players will still enjoy this game.
