All About Valletta Megaways™ Slot
Slots fans might find similarities between Valetta Megaways™ and another slot game, this one called Napoleon – namely the high variance, the huge win potential and epic warfare narrative. In this case the game doesn’t require you to be a history fan, but it sure helps to understand what you are seeing on the screen. The little rocky island of Malta in the Mediterranean, once a place where many decisive battles took place, now becomes a virtual battlefield where free spins, Scatters, Wilds and respins bounce of the defensive walls of Valletta and hopefully boost your bankroll as often as possible.
Themes, Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
There’s no doubt that Blueprint designers have done a phenomenal job with this one. The game looks outstanding, catapulting you back in 1565 during the Great Siege when the Ottoman Empire tried to invade the island of Malta. The Maltese people (The Knights Hospitaller and common population, 6.100 in total) withstood the siege and sent off the invaders (40,000 of the Ottoman army) which, at the time, changed the European perception of the Ottomans as invincible. The medieval feel is on point and you will see a castle and a burning ship in the foggy distance.
As for the symbols on the reels, they include a standard set of 9 to A royals and theme-inspired icons which carry higher values – swords, shields, maps and the lion from the coat of arms of Grandmaster de Vallette. The latter is the top paying icon in the game, delivering 25x the stake for a combo of 6 matching symbols. The valiant knight is the Wild symbol and the Scatter is the cannon. Valletta Megaways is playable on all devices from 10p to £100 per spin, which is a healthy range of bets to play around with.
The Valletta Streak feature is one of the 3 base game modifiers that appear at random. When it happens, you get one Valletta Streak spin during which winning combinations are held while the remaining reels re-spin. The feature lasts until there are no more winning combos.
Random Wilds and Scatters
Extra Wilds can be added to the reels during Valletta Megaways base game. They can connect across all reels and deliver sizeable payouts. When specific reels get highlighted with flames, Scatters will land on those reels. They may not always trigger the free spins round, but they will bring you closer to it every time.
The round is triggered the usual way – at least 3 of the Scatter cannons need to land on a single spin, For that, you will get 10 freebies. More Scatters mean more free spins:
- 4 Scatter symbols = 12 free spins.
- 5 Scatter symbols = 15 free spins.
- 6 Scatter symbols = 20 free spins
You can still benefit from win streaks, as winning symbols will also remain in position while re-spins continue until there are no more wins to evaluate.
The Slot Buzz Verdict
This is another solid Megaways™ slot from Blueprint, but one that comes with a very special look and feel that make it stand out from the crowd. The gameplay is not unique but Valetta will still appeal to many high-risk gaming fans out there looking for their latest fix of expanding reels fun!
