Valletta Megaways slot theme, STAKES, PAYLINES & SYMBOLS
VALLETTA MEGAWAYS™ PAYTABLE
The Mediterranean island of Malta is known worldwide for its presence in the gambling industry, but some may not know about the historical struggles that this tiny island once faced. Along with taking the title of being the most bombed country in history back in 1942, the Maltese people also had to face the Ottoman Empire in 1565 when the Great Siege of Malta took place. This is what we presume is the theme for Blueprint Gaming's Valletta Megaways slot game, with the backdrop to the action being one of war and fires blazing constantly. There's a very dramatic soundtrack to the game too, which is best enjoyed wearing your headphones if you get the opportunity.
Whilst dodging the incoming fire we find our way to the paytable of the slot, where we see the standard royal symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K, and Ace making up the lower pays. Premium paying symbols are the sword, shield, map, and lion, with a 6 of a kind win paying 2.5x, 2.5x, 5x, and 25x respectively. The knight symbol is the wild within the game, which will substitute for all other game symbols except the scatter.
Those players who have enjoyed their spinning time on the demo slot of Valletta Megaways, and perhaps want to try out some real money play, can do so for just €0.10 a spin, with the maximum bet size reaching €10. There's a very fair RTP rate also attached to the slot, with it's value coming in at 96.39%.
base game & modifiers
RANDOM BASE GAME FEATURES CAN TAKE PLACE DURING ANY SPIN ON VALLETTA MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
Blueprint Gaming's Valletta Megaways online slot is set on a 6x5 reel format, with the Megaways mechanic taking control of the in-game operations. Through this dynamic engine the slot is able to produce up to a maximum of 15,625 paylines on any spin. Blueprint haven't just stopped there though, with players getting to enjoy a host of other modifiers and bonuses, which we will now look at in more detail.
If the Valletta streak is randomly awarded during your play on the base game, then you will notice that the game decides to lock in a random symbol. For example, if the Valletta symbol has been locked in on the first 3 reels, from this point the reels will re-spin and the aim is to add to your winning payline. Multiple symbols can land and form separate wins too, which can give you additional chances to win. The re-spins will continue to happen until you either fill the reels completely, or you fail to add to your winning ways.
As seen previously on various other slots by Blueprint, you can be awarded a base game feature where more of the bonus symbols are added to the reels. Once you have seen these symbols added, the game will then highlight each reel individually with flames. You'll then get to see if the bonus symbol will land on that reel. Whilst this is not a guarantee that you will trigger the free spin feature, it does dramatically increase you chances of hitting the bonus round.
The bonus wilds feature will see multiple wild symbols added to the game reels. Once you have seen these added to the reels they will then stop in sequence. From this point onwards you will have the chance to complete a winning combination multiple ways, with the help of the wilds if you connect them all the way from reels 1 through to 6.

10 FREE SPINS AWARDED FOR A 3 SCATTER TRIGGER ON VALLETTA MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
To trigger the free spins feature on Valletta Megaways slot you will need to land 3 or more of the bonus scatter symbols anywhere in view.

3 Scatter symbols = 10 Free spins.
4 Scatter symbols = 12 Free spins.
5 Scatter symbols = 15 Free spins.
6 Scatter symbols = 20 Free spins.

MUTLIPLE WINNING WAYS DURING THE FREE SPIN BONUS ROUND ON VALLETTA MEGAWAYS™
The free spins bonus is just the same as the Valletta streak bonus that we talked about earlier. Again any winning combinations will be locked in, and re-spins will continue until you either fill the reels completely with winning ways, or you fail to add to the current win. This feature can be re-triggered, and this is achieved by filling the reels with winning symbols.
Finally we have the bonus buy option for those players who are still able to access this feature. Gaining instant access to the free spins feature will cost you the sum of 100x your stake, with this also raising the RTP level to 97%.
Valletta megaways slot review final thoughts
Having released some extremely volatile slots prior to Valletta Megaways™, it seems that Blueprint have decided to take the approach of making this March 2019 release a little more friendly to players of all types. This is a smart move from Blueprint as they continue to move ahead in the Megaways market, and by appealing to a wider audience with their Megaways portfolio more players will be potentially spinning on their slots soon.
Whilst Valletta Megaways is perhaps not the most exciting slot to hit the Megaways market in recent times, it is going to appeal to a number of players. It certainly has a hint of Genie Jackpots Megaways™ about it, especially with the way the main streak feature works, for those of you who are seasoned players you will probably notice a few sound effects from their slot Napoleon in the game as well.
