About This Game
Twin Spin, one of NetEnt’s most popular slot games, is making a comeback in a big way. The new Twin Spins Megaways version retains its synched reels and wild symbols, but is boosted by the addition of an Avalanche reel feature and a free spins round, complete with multiplier wilds and retriggers.
Twin Spins Megaways offers a wide betting range, starting from just 10p up to £200 per spin. The RTP remains similar to the original game at 96.04%, although the game’s volatility has been dialed up. Another major change is the max payout potential, which is up to 38,000x your bet.
Theme Symbols and Paytable
The Twin Spins Megaways design is similar to the original version of the game, featuring a classic Las Vegas feel with some modern elements to attract a wider audience. The graphics are crisp and clear and the soundtrack, which could come straight out of a TV show, is similar to the Twin Spins slot, although somewhat livelier.
The design of this game is simple and fuss-free, making it perfect for players looking for a quality game without all the bells and whistles of more modern titles. The understated design works well and provides plenty of thrilling hours of entertainment and rewards.
The reels are plain black and feature classic fruity symbols, giving the slot an almost nostalgic feel. Symbols include standard royal cards, which are the lowest paying symbols, as well as your typical cherries, bells, bars and lucky 7s. The highest paying symbol is the diamond, which could see players walk away with up to 10x their total stake when landing up to six of these symbols in combination.
The flashing icon serves as the wild symbol, which substitutes for all regular pay symbols on the reels when appearing on the second and sixth reels only. The slot logo represents the scatter, the bonus symbol that triggers the free spins feature.
RTP, Variance, Payouts, and Stake Limits
Twin Spins Megaways is a cascading video slot featuring six reels, seven rows and up to an incredible 117,649 ways to win. Wins are issued for matching symbol combinations, starting at 3 and all the way up to 5 symbols on adjacent reels from left to right only.
The game features a wide betting range of between 0.10 to 200 credit per spin, bumping your potential max win to 38,000 times your total stake. The likeliest way to win the max bet is from the wild multipliers that appear in the free spins bonus round. The game is considered medium to high volatility with an RTP of 96.04%.
Gameplay and Features
NetEnt has taken some elements of the original Twin Spins game and added some twists for an enhanced gaming experience. This includes the addition of features like Avalanche spins and a free spins bonus round with wild multipliers.
The Avalanche feature is triggered when you land a winning combination. Here, as the name suggests, symbols are blasted off the reels and new symbols replace them, adding to your winning opportunities. Any winning symbols will payout and the process is repeated until no new winning combinations are formed.
Twin Reel feature
On each spin, two or more adjacent reels are duplicated to form twins. Landing five twinned reels mean five reels will display identical symbols, boosting your chances of landing a winning combination. Landing a win will then trigger the Avalanche feature, adding a new level of winning opportunities to your gameplay.
Free spins feature
Land five scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger the free spins bonus feature. You will earn 15 free spins for activating the bonus round, and an extra free spin for every additional scatter on the triggering spin.
Wild multipliers can also appear anywhere on the reels, except on reel one. These wild multipliers have been known to double or even trebled payouts, so do look out for them. When it forms part of a set of twinned reels, the wild multipliers can push your payout up to 38,000 times your total stake. Landing five twinned reels means you can play for the maximum of 117,649 Megaways.
Summary and Our Verdict
