I'm not sure I'm technically allowed to make a new slot 'announcement' but there isn't a thread for this game yet and I played it for just over four hours yesterday with real funds, so I'm probably in a decent place to introduce it to other CM members.

Bandicam was running for the whole four hours and I captured a total of eight features, (there are four features on this slot and I played each of them twice), which are presented in the video linked below.

The video was made by re-recording the exciting bits of the four hours of Bandicam footage, adding a commentary at the same time, and then editing it together before rendering back out and uploading to YouTube, so you get over four hours of gameplay condensed into 50 minutes for an all-action feature extravaganza.

I also review the slot as a whole and give my thoughts on it, and go through my stats.

Anyone can make one if they are first with it @ChopleyIOM mate! I hated this one, I will now discover if you did too...
I've stopped doing them now, and the review videos, it was too time consuming, only really bothered with BTG now.

I used to like the review videos shame you stopped i have to admit i have stopped watching your bonanza vids unless they have other games in them as so bonanza fatigued you really need to consider some other games. I liked it when you did millionaire and monopoly for a change.

Rhyme and reason for second feature is that if the the symbol in the top-row is found in the reel beneath it, it will turn it wild. =)
I think that feature is the best one.
Had some decent hits on it.

Kroffe got it right. Any symbol in the top row appearing on the same reel below turns wild in the Federation Spins. A wild will turn the entire reel below wild and add a multiplier equal to the positions on the reel. Max is x6.

Two or more reels wild will be multiplied by each other, so max multiplier is 7x7x7x7 including the wild in the top row. Will never happen probably but two reels wild is not too uncommon.

The game is overall not too bad, certainly not worse than any other Megaways game. I thought it was nice to have a IR-type feature selection.

EDIT: When I got the demo link I ran all features numerous as I hade a dev button (didn't have the feature buy at the time). The biggest win came from the Mystery Wheel which gave me 5 Pickle Rick FS. Funnily it paid the most of all features. :rolleyes:

What's the bonus frequency on this one? More generous than Bonanza?

You've now got Legacy of the Gods and Gorilla Gold Meagreways to look forward to too and Megaways Jack from Iron Dog.....

Were my maths right on this BTW?

I called the average feature pay at around 140x stake, given that the feature buy costs 150x stake and we need to remove the house edge from that.

However, for the feature to pay that much on average, they must have shifted quite a lot of RTP from the base game into the feature compared to something like Bonanza, was my take on it.

I played this on release, straight in without looking at the pays.
Around 300 spins at 0.20 before I finally got the 3 scatters, only to realise that I needed 4 for a bonus:oops:.

Dropped to minimum bet for a further 400 odd spins before the bonus, which paid 250x, but still well down.
Feels similar to Wish Upon a Jackpot Megaways, very tight base game but better than average bonuses.

All Blueprint Mw Slots if you don't get the bonus within the first couple of hundred spins the base games are so tight you are very unlikely to recover.

Pig Wizard Mw might be the worst base game I've ever played on this type of slot.

Also Beetlejuice Megaways (the horror movie is going into online gaming) from SG Digital/Barcrest.

Blueprint started making more exclusive titles. Before it was only LeoVegas MW, which went global as Safari Gold MW. Now you have also Dafabet MW and soon Party Casino MW. Both are clones of existing MWs.

Inspired is soon releasing Anubis Wild MW, basically Desperados Wild MW but with one bonus feature only, the one with the sticky wilds.

iSoftbet has Majestic MW ready for launch, should be in the next days or so. Clone of Diamond Mine Extra Gold MW.

Don't know what BTG has lined up next. They showed something at ICE but I wasn't there, so no clue.

EDIT: Still waiting for Storm Gaming to release Captain Cashfall MW.

ReelPlay will release Atlantis Megaways in Q2/2020 exclusive at the Rank Group brands. Is a clone of Hypernova MW.

I have now close to 100 MW slots reviewed. We should soon surpass that number. Wonder how many more will the market be able to support. :rolleyes:

EDIT2: Just counted them - 84 MW slots which includes 2 Epic Ways titles.

I've played around ~1200 spins so far and I've gotten 2 bonuses.

First one was Vindicators (12 spins) that payed 62,7x and the second one was Federation (also 12 spins) that payed 16,4x.
Bought one yesterday and got Vindicators for 20 spins and got 146,5x.

And so far the best base game hit has been 62,8x.
So nothing close to great or amazing yet for me at least.

Thematically I find Blueprint always seem to nail these games with great presentation etc

But the base game in their titles is always oh so humdrum, from everything ranging from Ted to Beavis & Butthead, which would make one think they're rip-roaring slots based on their characters, but NOPE!

So whilst I know nothing about these cartoon creations, the game's clearly a variant of Bonanza, it will amuse and frustrate in equal measure, yet delight fans who are willing to forego the Bonanza & Blueprint double brutality, i.e 'unwinnable'.

Short of bursts of fanboy frolics I don't see much beneath its veneer. DOA it is then :D

Yeah, did a review and video of Majestic Megaways a while ago, on my Meagreways page. Not too bad.

Just saw a typo in my post.

Beetlejuice Megaways will be done by Scientific Games / Barcrest in this case.

Get ready for more rattling reels a la Raging Rhino MW and Monty MW. :rolleyes: :D

I don't actually agree with any of that TBH Mr Goatwack! :)

1) Beavis & Butthead is a really gentle game (500x stake max prize AFAIK), and as well as the main scatters feature, has four different mini features that come up very regularly. It's unusual to go 100 spins on the game without getting a feature of some description.

2) Rick & Morty clearly shares a very similar looking base game setup to Bonanza, but you only need to play it to realise the base game is much harsher than Bonanza, and they've lumped a good chunk of RTP into the bonuses, which is the only way they could get the average pay to 140x stake. (Assuming that's correct, given that the feature buy costs 150x stake.)

I won't play Bonanza unless I'm unwell in some way, but I'll definitely give Rick & Morty another shot, but I wouldn't go into it with less than 500x stake as a bankroll.

I'd pitch its feature frequency at about 1/350 - 1/450, so it will do droughts of 1500-2000 spins without a feature once in a while.

You could actually make a case for feature buys on Rick & Morty, given that the RTP is higher (97.1% vs 96.5%), and the base game is a bag of rancid arseholes.

Oh come on, how about agreeing on some of it. The opening paragraph at least :laugh:
