88 Fortunes Megaways Slot – More Ways to Win
88 Fortunes Megaways is a must-try game for any Canadian OJOer who likes their Asian-themed games served with multiple bonus features and thrilling wins. Even better, it’s equipped with the incredible Megaways engine, which means *spoiler alert* there’s 117,649 ways to win!
If you know your online slots providers, at first glance you might think that the 88 Fortunes Megaways slot machine is from Big Time Gaming (BTG), the developer behind the awesome Megaways feature. However, this isn’t the case. The 88 Fortunes Megaways slot game is developed by SG Digital, powered by Shuffle Master/Bally Technologies and uses the Megaways engine under license of Big Time Gaming.
Designed to Dazzle
What can you can expect from the SG Digital 88 Fortunes Megaways slot? Based on the original 88 Fortunes games, the Megaways version keeps the vibrant red and gold colour scheme, the lucky Chinese-inspired theme, and the exciting experience. One of the main differences is that this version is about more ways to win versus hitting progressive jackpots.
Also featuring a cascading win system (an OJO favourite), the slot has 6 main reels and 2 - 7 rows. The two outer reels can have anywhere from 2 – 6 symbols and the four middle reels can have up to 7 symbols each. Plus, there is an additional 1x4 reel across the bottom. All this makes it possible to land one of the massive number of ways to win, up to 117,649!
As for the cascading win system, when a winning combo results, it vanishes from the reels and new symbols fall into place. This can lead to more wining combinations and the process doesn’t stop until there are no more winning combos. Pretty cool, eh?
Overall, this is considered to be among the online casino games that feature medium to high volatility levels, and the 88 Fortune Megaways slot RTP is 95.27%.
Find Good Fortune
88 Fortunes Megaways online slot has high-paying thematic picture symbols, including the vase, boat, turtle and jade eagle. Each of these will pay out 50 coins should they land across all six reels. The rest are standard playing card symbols ranging from 9 – A and will result in smaller sized wins if they land in the right combo.
There are also gold symbols, numbered 1 to 5. You can choose how many of these come into play before you spin. Your selection will affect the cost of each of your spins. At the minimum wager level (C$0.08), you’ll get only 1 golden coin. However, if you add some more juice to your wager, you’ll get gold versions of the four picture symbols. This increases their worth, upping their value from 0.09x to 11x the stake.
Since this game is all about lucky number 8, there’s no surprise that the minimum bet for 88 Fortunes Megaways slot ca is C$0.08 and the maximum bet is $88.00.
The Fu Bat Wild and Free Spins
The Wild symbol of the game is represented by a colourful Chinese character. In addition to being able to replace all other symbols (except the scatter) to form a winning combo, this Fu Bat symbol also adds coins to the coin pot located above the reels. Each time the coin pot is filled it could randomly trigger the Picker Bonus Feature, which can happen at any time.
Picker Bonus Feature
When the Picker Bonus feature is triggered, the main game will be replaced by a screen of 15 golden coins. You can pick coins one by one until you have found three of a kind. These matching coins will reward you with the number of free spins they reveal and each have multipliers as follows:
- 10 Free Spins – 6x multiplier
- 12 Free Spins – 4x multiplier
- 15 spins – 2x multiplier
It is also possible to trigger 88 Fortunes Megaways free spins beyond the picker feature. This can be achieved by landing 4, 5 or 6 gong scatter symbols on consecutive reels, which will result in 8, 10 or 12 Free Spins, respectively. What makes triggering these free spins pretty spectacular is that they can be retriggered again and each winning combination increases the multiplier by 1, boosting the chance for bigger wins. Woo-hoo!
