Valletta MegaWays™ from Blueprint Gaming draws inspiration from violent European history with free spins, the Valletta Streak and Bonus Bet for wins of up to 10,000x bet!
The theme is based on the attempted invasion of the Mediterranean island of Malta by the Ottoman Empire in 1565, which would later be known as the Great Siege of Malta.
Erosion of the belief in Ottoman invincibility
The developer bases its theme on a significant historical event in Europe that proved to the demoralised Europeans at the time that the Ottoman Empire could be defeated.
The excellent illustrations support this exceptional theme. To the back of the slots, you can see the warm Mediterranean waves lapping against the shoreline. On the reels, you’ll find a banner, map, shield and sword making up the upper-value symbols.
There are also six lower-value royal flush poker symbols. The soundtrack is epic as are the audio effects from triggered features or winning paylines – all with thematic underpinnings!
The 6-reels slot can be played with up to 15,625 ways to win using MegaWays™, licensed from Big Time Gaming. What this means is that four row-high reels can become five row-high reels.
On any given spin the Valletta Streak Feature may be triggered which awards a winning streak. On any win, during the feature, the winning symbols lock in place while the rest re-spin for the chance to add more of the same symbols or wilds to the reels. After the feature, the final prize is calculated and awarded.
Knight wild symbol
The knight symbol acts as a wild appearing on the 2nd to 6th reels and replaces all other symbols except the canon bonus scatter.
Valletta Free Spins
Valletta Free Spins is triggered by 3, 4, 5 or 6 canon scatter symbols that will award 10, 12, 15 or 20 free spins respectively.
Valletta Bonus Bet
The Valletta Bonus Bet can be triggered during the main game, but you’ll need to buy into the bonus at the cost of 100x your wager. What this does is automatically trigger the Valletta Free Spins by guaranteeing at least three canon scatter symbols.
Valetta MegaWays™ slot is a high volatility slot with a return to player (RTP) of 96.45% which means that you may need to play with a higher bankroll to better your odds of a larger prize. Typically, the wagers can be varied from as little as 0.10 to as much as 10.
The game has been optimised for use on mobile, tablet and desktop which means that if you’re on the move, then you can take it with you on an Android or iOS device.
Valetta MegaWays™ is a March 2019 release with some excellent payout potential against the backdrop of a colourful, albeit bloody, event in European history.
