How it Works
You play this game on a six-reel board with up to 100,842 Megaways. The first reel can only be six symbols tall, while all other reels can be seven icons tall. The reason for this is that the first reel has a blank spot at its centre. It serves to split the reels between two survivors, along with a shared space. Apart from looking exotic, it is also useful for certain special features. Wins are awarded when you collect three or more identical symbols in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel. The control panel is pushed to the bottom of the screen in this release. Using it, you can set up Auto Play, look at the paytable, change your bet and spin the reels. You can wager between £0.20 and £50 on every spin.
Icon designs look good. Big Time Gaming was not too preoccupied to make them fit with the theme entirely. Playing card royals look exactly like they do in other titles by the same developer. We also have several spooky tropical masks in Survivor Megaways that fit much better. Keep an eye out for urns, the two survivor Wilds and the slot logo Scatter. These bonus symbols serve to activate special features.
As previously mentioned, the game’s reel is split into three sections. The red survivor, the extra reel, and the blue survivor. Winning combinations can occur on the entire reel, regardless of this visible split. The only place it plays a role are Tribe Wild multipliers. When urns appear above or below the extra reel, it awards its multiplier to the corresponding tribe. Urns disappear from the playing field after increasing the Wild multiplier for that round. The multiplier resets when it is time for the next spin.
Each win causes winning icons to disappear from the playing field. Existing symbols will fall to take their place, while brand new ones fill in the gaps. This is the cascading reels special feature, which is active all the time. With a bit of luck, you can use it to earn multiple back-to-back wins for the price of a single spin!
Collect three or more Scatters to win fifteen free spins. You can win five more extra turns for each additional Scatter you score on top of that. Wild Multipliers carry over from the triggering spin into free spins. While the special feature is active, the multipliers will not reset. This allows you to get some incredible wins while the free spins last. Three Scatters in any position grant an extra five free spins, plus five more for each additional Scatter.
Few releases can match the nail-biting excitement offered by Survivor Megaways. The reel split is a cool idea, though it feels like Big Time Gaming did not commit to it fully. It will be a little bit confusing at first until you get used to it. After that brief period, you will be able to experience the thrill of this slot fully! It is one of the most rewarding ones to date, being able to award a jackpot worth 44,000x your total stake! You will need to make use of its awesome special features to get this prize. Not to worry though, as the above average RTP is working in your favour.
