What we think about the Dynamite Riches Megaways slot

"The gold mining theme done right, blast to bigger wins through the slot's 4 unlockable features, without cartoonish capers!"

Is Dynamite Riches Megaways the right slot for you?

Dynamite Riches Megaways exploded onto the scene in September 2021 courtesy of Red Tiger, who combined their original Dynamite Riches creation from 2019 with Big Time Gaming's Megaways mechanic to spice up the gameplay. What you get as a result is a tantalising mix of the best bits from the original game with up to 117,649 ways to win across 6 reels.

There's a great range of stakes here, from 10p all the way up to £20 per spin. You're looking at a maximum possible payout of 7,000x in Dynamite Riches Megaways, with the slot finding that sweet spot between high and low volatility, scoring 3 out of 5. That means you can expect a nice balance between small, frequent wins and larger but less frequent payouts on average.

The game does well to capture the anticipatory atmosphere of possibly discovering gold in a mineshaft, playing heavily on rumbles and explosions, with the ever-present, easily excitable banjo soundtrack always keen to remind you of what's at stake. What makes the game unique is the 4 unlockable special features, which offer an element of progression that really pays off. If a more progressive and immersive experience is what you’re after, you'll enjoy this slot.

Game features

Dynamite Riches Megaways retains the 4 unlockable special features and free spins bonus round that made the original slot so great, with one or two minor tweaks. As in the classic game, landing dynamite wild symbols on the reels adds to the special feature meters along the top, from left to right, with 15 dynamite symbols needed to unlock each one. Luckily, those dynamite wilds don't need to be involved in a winning combination to count - just landing them is enough. Plus, once you've unlocked the special features, they'll trigger at random from then on. Do note, though, that your feature progress only applies at your current stake - change stake and those feature meters will reset. Thankfully, you can change back to retrieve your progress!


The first unlockable special feature is the TNT, which rids the reels of all of the lower paying card suit gem symbols, leaving only the higher value symbols remaining. That gives you a better chance of landing a decent-sized win.

Golden Wilds

Unlock the 2nd special feature by landing a total of 30 dynamite wild symbols and gold bar wild symbols will land all over reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, offering another boost to your win potential.

Land a total of 45 dynamite wild symbols and you'll unlock the Multiplier special feature. Watch the compass as when the spinning stops it'll reveal a 2x to 10x multiplier that'll be applied to your next win on the reels - yes, that's your next win, not your next spin!

Mega Wild

Once you've blown up a whopping 60 dynamite wilds, not only can you officially call yourself the blast master, you'll also unlock the 4th and final special feature in the set. Here you'll be rewarded with a huge reel height Mega Wild that will cover reel 2, 3, 4 or 5 entirely. This feature differs from that of the original Dynamite Riches slot in that here the wild covers the entire reel rather than a 2x2 or 3x3 section of the reel set.

Gold Spins

If you're lucky enough to see at least 3 gold and diamond filled minecarts hit anywhere on the reels at once, you'll be in for a wild ride in the slot's free spins feature. And I really mean a wild ride, thanks to the 3 different wilds that could fall onto any of the centre 4 reels during your free spins!

The number of carts you land determines the free spins you'll trigger: 3, 4, 5 or 6 carts award 8, 10, 12 or 14 free spins respectively. Even better, every time you win, you'll push your win multiplier up one higher, up to a maximum of 20x. You can even add to your free spins during the feature: land 3 carts to add 4 free spins, with every additional cart adding another free spin.

117,649 Ways

Thanks to Big Time Gaming's Megaways slot mechanism magic, which sees each reel in the game capable of holding a variable number of symbols from 2 to 7, you get up to a whopping 117,649 ways to win when you play Dynamite Riches Megaways. You'll see the ways offered by each spin in the Megaways box at the top left of the screen.

Tumbling Symbols

Though it's not specifically mentioned in the game's pay table, every win you trigger results in a potential cascade of additional wins thanks to the tumbling symbols mechanism. Symbols involved in a win disappear in a burst of tiny diamonds or gold nuggets and are immediately replaced by more symbols falling in from above. You won't get increasing win multipliers in this case like you do in some of the best Megaways slots, but you still stand to benefit from those chain reaction wins.

Must Drop Jackpots

Red Tiger's slots are unique in that around 80 of them give you the chance to trigger a daily jackpot just for playing - and the Dynamite Riches Megaways slot is included in the lineup. Simply land 3 of the blue and yellow jackpot symbols anywhere on the reels and the Jackpot Wheel will reveal either the Daily Jackpot or the progressive Mega Jackpot!

Dynamite Riches

Before the Megaways version, the original 5 reel Dynamite Riches slot from 2019 contained just as much appeal thanks to virtually the same 4 unlockable special features and gold spins bonus round. However, in this first game, the Mega Wild takes the form of a 2x2 or 3x3 symbol and gameplay takes place on 5 reels with 20 paylines.

Buffalo King Megaways

Another Megaways favourite, Buffalo King Megaways takes you on a trip into the North American prairies, home to the huge star of this slot show. Big Time Gaming's mechanism is pushed to new heights here, with ways to win reaching an incredible 200,704. If you like free spins bonus rounds, you'll enjoy the maximum of 22 free spins with up to 4x multipliers in this slot.

My verdict

It's way too easy for a remake to disappoint, but luckily this is not the case with Dynamite Riches Megaways. Red Tiger has done the right thing by keeping the original slot's 4 unlockable special features and free spins bonus round intact - in fact, they've even introduced a few improvements to these, such as the reel height Mega Wild and up to 14 free spins in the bonus round instead of the original 12. Add in the incredible power of Big Time Gaming's Megaways mechanism, giving you up to 117,649 ways to win, and you've got a rather explosive slot on a number of levels!

Personally, I love the progression elements offered by the 4 unlockable features as they really make it worthwhile getting stuck into the game for a decent session. It can take a while to unlock all 4, but once you've done it, they can trigger on any spin and that's where this slot really starts to pay off.

What makes Megaways slots different?

Megaways slots introduce a new way of winning thanks to some ingenious tweaking by the mechanism's developer, Big Time Gaming. Each reel of a Megaways slot can hold anything from 2 to 7 symbols, and this changes every time you spin the reels. Pays are awarded when you match symbols on consecutive reels, not just along set paylines. The result is a variable number of ways to win every time you spin! In Dynamite Riches Megaways, that's up to 117,649 ways to win, but other slots offer even more, like Buffalo King Megaways, which boasts up to an incredible 200,704!

What is the Dynamite Riches Megaways RTP?

The Dynamite Riches Megaways RTP (Return to Player) is 95.75%. What that means is over the course of millions of spins, the slot is expected to pay out an average of 95.75% of played funds. It doesn't mean you'll get 95.75% of your played funds back in a single session! However, stick with PlayOJO and what you will get back is money back for every spin you play thanks to OJOplus.
