Beef Lightning is a Megaways game! This means that it has a ridiculous 117,649 ways to win! Wins are awarded from left to right. For the game layout, the standard reel setup is 6x7, however, some of the symbols are larger and take up more than one row’s space.
For bet values, you can use the left and right arrows to change the value. The minimum bet is €0.20, and the maximum bet is €7.50. This is not a great variance and may not appeal to high rollers.
You can also select an auto spin option. Here you can set the number of spins, a loss limit, and a single win limit to make your gameplay more controlled.
Beef Lightning has 10 symbols in the standard paytable. The low-tier symbols are playing cards including a 9, 10, jack, queen, king, and ace. The 9, and 10 have a maximum 0.4x total bet multiplier for 6 symbols. Next, the jack and queen have a 0.5x multiplier for 6 symbols. The king and ace pay 0.6x for 6 symbols.
The four high-tier symbols are either cows or items relating to cows. The cow shoe pays 1x for 6 symbols, whilst the cowbell also pays 1x for 6 symbols. Finally, the female cow pays 2.5x for 6 symbols, and the bull pays 20x for 6 symbols.
The game also has a wild symbol and a scatter symbol. The wild substitutes for everything, but it can also duplicate! Anytime, a total of 3 wilds can duplicate over the reel they are on, and all icons on the reel are turned into wilds. The moo scatter symbol has no payout, but it does activate the free spins detailed below.
When playing this awesome Megaways slot, you can earn the Beef Lightning free spins. This is undoubtedly the best Beef Lightning bonus feature. As mentioned, the free spins are won via the scatter. 3 scatter symbols win 12 bonus games.
During the bonus games, an auction for cows takes place! You enter the auction with no cows or bids but can earn cows as the free spins unfold. In the end, the total cows you have x the bid you have is rewarded as an additional prize.
The free spins also have bonus symbols that are coins. These award different items including extra cows, cow auction bids, and a spin retrigger feature! You can also get a bronze, silver, or gold trophy - these each award a payout based on your total bet. The maximum is the gold trophy which awards a 25,000x multiplier!
