ALL ABOUT PRIMAL MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
Blueprint have set a course for high variance heaven since taking the first license for Megaways™ from Big Time Gaming. We have already seen games like Irish Riches, Buffalo Rising and the re-worked Genie Jackpots on the famous game engine.
Since then of course, news of deals between BTG and Red Tiger and Storm Gaming have broken, with more on the way we suspect.
So, are we in for Megaways™ overkill? Or will these games just continue to grow in popularity in the coming months and years. We will have to wait and see. But for now, let’s feast on this latest offering from Blueprint, the Paleolithic-based Primal Megaways™, featuring cool jungle graphics, pre-historic monsters, and likely monstrous payouts for those who can crack the bonus rounds and find those re-triggers and progressive multipliers.
Primal Megaways™ Game Set-Up
So we all know how these games work – six reels and a row-set that can expand at random on each spin thanks to the Random Reel Modifier engine that drives Megaways™. In this instance the broadest range of rows gives 46,656 ways to win. Not the standard 117,649 ways of Bonanza then, but still a promising set-up. As ever, winlines are created by landing identical symbols on adjacent reels regardless of their position on each row.
Of course, Primal Megaways™ is a high variance game, with 96.76% RTP and most of the winning stuff hidden away in the free spins round which comes with multipliers and re-triggers galore.
Primal Megaways™ Game Symbols
We have five low value symbols, the 10 through to Ace on the reel set, then five high value premium symbols, including the highest-paying saber tooth tiger and the wooly mammoth (50x for five on a payline).
There are also Pawprint Mystery symbols that appear at random and transform into other symbols to create winning lines during the game.

Free Spins Bonus Round
Like all Megaways™ slots, the free spins round is the key to unlock the riches. You’ll need to land three or more scatters to trigger it. This works as follows:
3 Scatter Symbols – 10 Spins with 2x or 3x multipliers.
4 Scatter Symbols – 15 Spins with 2x, 3x or 4x multipliers.
5 Scatter Symbols– 20 Spins with 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x multipliers.
6 Scatter Symbols– 30 Spins with 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 6x multipliers.
It is possible to re-trigger free spins an unlimited number of times by landing more scatters during the bonus round.
On top of the random multiplier applied to your free spins round, there are also Multiplier Wilds that appear on reels two to six and multiply by one another to create even bigger multipliers. So, land two 3x on one spin and a 9x will be applied to any win you get.
Finally, should your bonus round end with anything less than a 10x overall win and the free spins round will start all over again to ensure you leave with something more substantial!
The Slot Buzz Verdict
This is a fine addition to the Megaways™ series of slots that is growing in size all the time. There is always a danger that these games will become too alike and the Megaways™ novelty will wear off. For now though, if Blueprint can keep them coming like this, with great graphics, smooth gameplay and some nice added features, they’ll be no complaints from our side.
Definitely worth a spin!
