Theme & Sound Design
What do you think the theme of The Expendables Megaways slot is? Of course, it’s Expendables inspired. From the symbols to the visuals to the sound design, everything takes you back to the good old days of Sylvester Stalone and the team.
The backdrop of the game is dark, a lot like some of the action scenes from the movies. In the foreground, you have your grid where symbols lands. On the top right corner of the grid, there’s a bullet counter. A “Bullet Bonus” feature is triggered when you popular all 5 bullet slots.
On the top left corner, you have the Megaways counters. As the number of active paylines changes with every spin, you can see the exact number on this counter. As for the sound design, you’ll hear a lot of bullets flying around and classic action noises.
Barney Ross, Christmas Lee, Yin Yang, Gunner Jensen, and Hale Caeser. Do these names ring any bell? Well, these are the most prominent characters from the original Expendables movie and all of these symbols have been adapted for the Expendables Megaways slot.
These are all high paying symbols. For the Barney Ross symbol, you need at least 2 to generate a payline. For the rest of them, you need at least 3. The payouts will be different depending on how many of which symbols you land on a payline.
For example, you land 6 Barney Ross on all 6 reels, you get 2.50 coins payout. Of course, your bet value for that spin and the active number of paylines will determine the actual payout value.
Right after these symbols, you get the royal symbols in The Expendables Megaways Slot. You get all of them, A, J, Q, K, and 10. These all pay when you have at least 3 on a payline.
The wild symbol in the game is a dog tag with “Wild” written on it. And the scatter is the skull. The wild can replace any symbols to form a payline except for the scatters and the bullets.
This unique video slot game has quite a few bonus features. First up, you have the Super Stake options. It’s a proprietary mechanic from the developer, Stakelogic. If you have this active, all your bets will have double the value.
Remember the bullet counter? Every time you land a bullet, it’ll be stored in the bullet chamber. When you have 5 of them, they’ll randomly shoot reels 2, 3, 4, 5, and/or 6 to replace the spots for wilds. The counter resets after it's done.
If you land at least 4 scatters, the free spins round is triggered. You get 12 free spins for 4 scatters, 16 free spins for 5 scatters, 20 free spins for 6 scatters, and 24 free spins for 7 scatters.
During the free spins rounds, if you get an additional 3 scatters on the grid, you get 4 more free spins while 4 scatters will give you 8 additional spins.
Another interesting aspect of the bonus round is the royal symbols. If a winning combination includes one of the royals, all remaining symbols will be replaced, and a multiplier will trigger.
For example, if a payline contains 10 during the free spins round, all 10s will be removed from the grid and you’ll get a 1x multiplier. The next time something like this happens, you get a 2x multiplier.
