To blow the whistle and get things started on Maradona HyperWays, you need to choose your coin size. The game always has 40 coins in use, the minimum coin value is €0.01, and the maximum is €0.50, making the minimum overall bet €0.40 and the maximum €20, which isn’t a particularly notable range.
The action unfolds inside a virtual football stadium on a 5x4 grid. There are a total of 60,466,176 ways to win. This is possible thanks to the multipliers that are attached to each symbol that drops down on the grid.
The symbols in the game all look very familiar as the majority of the premium ones are an image of Maradona himself. Knowledge of the Argentian’s career may help here as some of the kits look very similar, which is not great for non-football fans. Maradona playing in his Argentina kit is the highest value standard symbol, paying out 20x your coin value for a combination of five. This is the blue jersey with the white stripes, not to be confused with the dark blue or light blue without the stripes. Second up is him in his Barcelona kit, which pays out 7x coin value for combos of five.
The lowest paying symbols are basically everything that isn’t Maradona. A football shirt, whistle, captain’s armband, referee’s cards, and a boot make these up and pay out 2x the coin value for combinations of five, and just 1x the value for combos of three. These do make a nice change from the same old royal card-suits though.
GameArt has made sure that this slot comes packed with a good selection of bonuses. The first Maradona HyperWays feature that is going to grab your attention is the titular HyperWays mechanic. Each symbol on the reels can land with a 9x multiplier which is what provides the game with its high 66,466,176 different ways to win count.
Many of the features here are tied in with the theme of football and Maradona himself. When you are spinning the reels, you will notice a scoreboard making a random appearance from time to time. When this happens, it will display a number that corresponds on top of each reel. If you land a scatter on the reel then this will apply a multiplier that matches the number up to 9x. The scoreboard will appear for every spin in the free spins round.
Speaking of which, the Maradona HyperWays free spins round is triggered whenever you manage to land five of the scatter symbols in one spin. Players will be rewarded with eight free spins which can not be retriggered. This is not the most innovative of free spins offerings but the addition of the scoreboard does mean there is the potential to score some big wins.
If you only manage to land four scatters, then you will be given the free-kick feature. This locks in your four scatter symbols and gives you a respin of the fifth reel in an attempt to help you secure the free spins round. If, of course, you don’t want to spend your time chasing the free spins feature, the slot also gives you the chance to just buy your way into it. The bonus buy feature can be activated by clicking the gold coin to the left of the reel.
The Maradona HyperWays RTP is a solid, though not spectacular, 96.30%. The RTP is increased to a more favorable 97.70% when the bonus buy feature is activated. There is no volatility information listed for the slot.
