Online Progressive Jackpot Slot Review – Megasaur
Megasaur, as the name should tell you, is a dinosaur themed slot and the progressive jackpot available is truly monstrous and certainly mega! Megasaur is one of the best online slots around and is produced by RTG (Realtime Gaming), the software provider that powers many of the best real money US slots sites and online casinos.
At the time of writing the progressive jackpot available on this fun slot is a very cool $975,000 so perhaps the biggest decision is, should you wait till it hits the magical, mega, Megasaur million? A seven figure win from a single spin of an online slot would be quite something but, of course, that jackpot could get won at any time, so our advice is to take on those dinosaurs at the first chance you get.
The slot is colorful, with dinosaurs, eerie volcanoes and chilling sound effects making for an experience that will be loved by players, dinosaur fans or not. To scoop the progressive jackpot you need to hit five of the volcano scatter symbols whilst in the bonus feature, which, let’s face it, isn’t going to be easy. That said, one lucky slots fan has already won more than $1m on this game so someone has to win it and it could be you!
It features five reels and 25 win lines and there are three staking options, with the slot playable for $1.25 per spin (5c per line), $2.50 (10c) or $5 (20c). This makes the game perfect for middle stakes slots fans, although real high rollers may bemoan the lack of a higher stake whilst the average player may find even $1.25 a little much.
Only those playing the full $5 spin will be eligible for the progressive jackpot, but those playing either of the two lower staking levels can still claim a proportion of the mega progressive.
The volcanoes, which are also the key progressive symbol, trigger the bonus round, with three volcanoes enough to win either 2, 5 or 10 free bonus spins. Whilst this isn’t the best bonus round you’ll find at an RTG slot, you can also claim very big wins via the wild symbols.
There are two wilds, the Green Megasaur and Red Megasaur. The former appears on the second reel and is a grouped wild whilst the latter is also grouped and shows on the fourth reel. With any wins featuring the Red Megasaur doubled, this fearsome looking dinosaur could soon become your best friend on this excellent online slot.
