ABOUT RICK AND MORTY MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
Blueprint has lead all licensees of Big Time Gaming’s now ubiquitous expanding reels game engine in the previous two years. Their production has been prolific, albeit not necessarily excellent. While many of their Megaways products have just followed the Bonanza concept to the letter, Rick and Morty may be one of those games.
For starters, the wacky, alcoholic scientist Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty wander into numerous universes and parallel realms, with tragic effects in each episode. A slot game is a natural fit for this crazy stuff, and Blueprint has done an excellent job with it.
A mix of wilds and progressive multipliers improve the chances of winning on the reels in this Megaways title.
Paytable and Setup
The Megaways game has six reels, each extending to a maximum of seven symbols high to create up to 117,649 paylines. To win in Megaways, you only need three or more identical symbols anywhere on adjacent reels.
The low value symbols are the cards 9 to Ace, while the high value symbols are the green rock, two shards, and Rick and Morty. Six on a payline pays 50x, whereas two on a payline pays only 2x.
Look out for wilds and bonus scatters, which help you win and start the free spins round.
Cascade wins are a must in any Megaways game. Each winning spin removes winning symbols from the reels and replaces them with fresh ones. The technique is continued until no more winlines appear. In both the base game and the bonus rounds.
Megaways Mystery Symbols appear at random and turn into the same genuine symbol, improving your chances of winning.
The free spins round is triggered by landing four or more bonus scatters. When this happens, you have four alternatives, each with its own benefits:
- Pickle Rick Free Spins – Features progressive multipliers similar to Bonanza. Each win cascade increases the multiplier by 1.
- Federation Wild Spins — Keep an eye on the extra bonus reel at the top. Then seek for matching symbols in the reel below. Symbols on the main set turn WILD if they match the bonus reel’s highlighted symbol.
- No Deposit Bonuses – Some symbols award quick cash awards. When a special symbol lands, all prizes are gathered and given out.
- FREE SPINS – Start the round by spinning the wheel to see how many free spins you earn and which bonus round you get.
During the bonus round, you can earn more free spins by landing more scatters.
Rick and Morty have all the makings of a great Megaways slot, and we expect it to last. Like another of their branded TV/movie games, the great Ted, Blueprint has successfully blended the cartoon’s appearance and feel with the game’s backdrop and features. It features a 50,000x top payoff and a 96.55 percent RTP, but the variance is too great for casual players, and even high-risk fans will have to tread carefully.
