As diverse as online pokie themes may be, you’re probably growing tired of the same old imagery featuring fruits and birds, fairies and soccer balls. Surely there’s an online pokie game out there that appeals to the die-hard metal fans? Long hair and loud guitars, thick bass and bone-chilling reverb? Luckily, there is: Megadeth. Created by none other than Leander Gaming, this exceptionally entertaining game is based on the original band which, alongside the likes of Metallica, Anthrax and Slayer, is considered one of the four biggest ‘thrash metal’ bands in the world. The uniqueness of this pokie has earned it a place among the best online casino games in Japan, and it’s available to play at Vera&John Casino, where new players are treated to an exceptional sign-up offer upon the successful registration of a new account. So, are you ready to rock out with some of the coolest features across the reels? Let’s go!
Megadeth is a 3x5-reel online pokie game with 40 fixed paylines. The reels are backed by what appears to be a stage, while the reels themselves are bordered by a metal frame, held in place by heavy chains. The low-value symbols are a guitar pick, a speaker, a drum and 3 different guitars, while the high value symbols are represented by the band members – Chris Broderick, David Ellefson and Shawn Drover, as well as a Megadeth logo symbol. Dave Mustaine acts as the Wild, and will stand in for other symbols to help you hit winning combinations, while Vic Rattlehead (represented by a stylised skull) acts as a special Bonus symbol.
The game features what is called a Mega Nudge Feature which you can toggle on and off as you desire, and while it costs you 40x your line bet, it allows the game to auto-nudge up to three times on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels to get the best win.
Landing 3 of the Bonus symbols on the 1s, 3rd or 5th reels will trigger the Vic Rattlehead bonus, in which a Mega-Wheel is spun to award you with a mini game. You’ll get to choose between the Hangar 18 Free Spins, where you will be awarded between 5 and 15 Free Spins, where the Mustaine Wild will be sticky. If you land on the Head Crusher game, you’ll be presented with 16 prisoners with bags over their heads. Keep picking male prisoners to increase your prize pot – pick a female and the feature ends.
Even if you’re not the biggest fan of death metal, Megadeth is still an exceptionally entertaining title to enjoy, thanks in part to its unique features and theme. As a matter of fact, it’s no wonder it’s being called one of the best online casino games in Japan. With exceptional graphics and a catchy soundtrack, you’ll be bopping your head all the way to the bank as you spin and win on the game’s wicked in-game bonus features. If you aren’t already a member of Vera&John Casino, make your way over there today and create an account. It’s quick and easy, and you’ll be treated to a generous welcome offer upon which to splash out on Megadeth and other games from Leander Gaming.
