|What’s Hot||What’s Not|
Before there were iMacs, before there were PlayStation and before there was Xbox, there was a small 8-bit handheld video game device that was manufactured by Nintendo. First released in Japan in 1989 and 1990 in Europe, we cannot help but reminisce about Game-Boy and the arcade mode games that we used to play on it, including Super Mario. Basic simple and most of all fun, the arcade game was a far cry from the great graphics that we are used to today, yet we binged on it like it was a yummy dish of mac n’ cheese.
Today we are not used to 16- bit graphics anymore, yet we still love the fact and also hope that PlayStation providers would re-make games such as Super Mario or Pacman. Well, we are in luck ladies and gents, as iSoftBet have given us an old school looking slot machine with the title of Mega Boy. Enjoying some of the most basic graphics, the slot machine is equipped with free spins and a handful of other perks, worth a spin or two, mark our words!
Mega Boy is a 5 reel and 25 pay line slot machine that is powered by iSoftBet. Taking inspiration from old school console games such as Gameboy, the slot machine enjoys basic 16- bit graphics that reminds us very much of the 90s gaming scene. The soundtrack that the online slot enjoys is very much in line with the vintage gaming play, as the heaving bleeping and electro feel are very evident, a good reminder of the good old days when we enjoyed console games such as Super Mario.
When it comes to the symbols that compromise the game, we love the fact that Mega Boy is equipped with some traditional symbols that include: 10, J, Q, K and A, all of these symbols represent the lowing paying symbol throughout your gameplay. Whilst the higher paying symbols are represented by classical slot machine symbols such as the lucky 7, bell, start, heart and of course the cherries. Look out for the orange power up that will award you different paying rewards.
Start enjoying this fun loving simple slot machine with as little as 0.25 that goes up to a maximum stake of 50.00 per spin. The other good news is that the slot machine can be enjoyed on all gaming devices, including tablets, mobile and desktop.
Bonuses and Rewards
Tried and tested from our end, Mega Boy comes along with power -ups that award you free spins and wilds, both features that land super easily on your reels.
Let us start by telling you about the cute orange power up that can be triggered as the Level One Power Up. When you manage to land this at the centre position of your reels, you will be awarded an initial 10 free spins that include some additional perks, such as wilds, plus you can easily walk away with 2x your initial stake. The other fact worth mentioning is that should you land the orange power-up again, the free spins will be re-triggered.
The Level 2 Power Up is activated when the purple power -up lands at the centre of your reels, which again is super easy to land, and makes frequent appearances. Here you will be awarded with 10 free spins with the addition of wilds and a 3x multiplier. All wins here can be from left to right and from right to left, so the winning combinations are indeed endless.
And finally one of Mega Boy’s highlights is the wild symbol. When this lands, any corresponding symbols that are located above, below. Left or right will also turn into wilds. The wilds then will expand to fill in all your reel adding a random symbol and turning it into a wild. The extra wild symbol is decided purely at random via a flashing meter that is located at the top of your reels.
