The Deal or No Deal Megaways slot is played on six reels but with no fixed number of rows and no paylines. While some reels might have three rows, others can have up to six. The jackpot slot offers up to 117,649 ways to win instead, so you don’t have to land winning combinations on certain lines. To form a winning combination, land matching symbols on adjacent reels and from left to right.
Regardless of the number of rows on a reel, as long as they are the same symbol on consecutive reels, it will form a win. The gameplay features cascading reels, which means that whenever you land a winning combination, the symbols involved disappear and new symbols drop in, increasing your chance of landing another win.
All wins are multiplied by your stake or bet. The slot's betting range is ideal for low-budget players, standing between €0.10 and €10.
Since there are no paylines, all the wins are multiplied by your bet. The slot offers small-sized wins, and you can land up to six symbols in a combination. The highest paying symbol is the Deal or No Deal icon, which will give you 50x, 20x, 5x, 2x, and 1x your bet for landing six, five, four, three, and two symbols on adjacent reels.
Next is the golden envelope with a reward of 5x, 2x, 1x, and 0.5x your bet when you hit six, five, four, and three symbols from left to right on the reels. The envelope stamp symbol will pay out 2x, 0.8x, 0.4x, and 0.3x your bet. This is the same payout as the cup.
The slot also features lower paying symbols. The symbol A will give you 1x, 0.8x, 0.3x, and 0.2x your bet for hitting six, five, four, and three symbols on consecutive reels. Next are K and J with the same payouts of 1x, 0.6x, 0.3x, and 0.2x your bet for landing six, five, four, and three of a kind.
Lastly, J, 10, and 9 offer rewards of 0.8x, 0.3x, 0.2x, and 0.1x your bet for landing six, five, four, and three symbols of a kind on adjacent reels.
The Deal or No Deal Megaways bonus features will make up for the small-sized payouts and definitely keep you wanting more as you spin the reels. A wild symbol can stand in for other symbols on the reels to form wins, except the scatter.
If you can land four consecutive cascading wins as you play the game, you unlock the Deal or No Deal Megaways bonus, which offers cash prizes and free spins. With five cascading wins, you get the Super Deal or No Deal reward with cash prizes and free spins, and with six cascading wins, you will be rewarded with the Mega Deal or No Deal bonus, which offers only free spins.
The Deal or No Deal Megaways free spins is called the Bankers Bonus Spins, and it comes with an unlimited win multiplier. With every reaction, the multiplier will increase, giving you higher payouts. The free spins round can also be retriggered. The Bankers Bonus Spins also features a mystery symbol bonus represented by the question mark. It can transform into any symbol except the wild.
Finally, the Jackpot King offers the progressive jackpot of the slot. It is randomly activated while you play and gives you a bonus game to collect crowns. The more crowns you collect, the higher your reward.
The Deal or No Deal Megaways RTP is set at 95.34%, while the progressive jackpot is 0.38%. It has medium to high volatility, so you get plenty of small wins in the base game.
