Overview

Monsters of Rock Megaways is a Storm Gaming slot based on the festival with the same name. Held annually at Castle Donington from 1980 to 1996, the festival played host to some of the world’s best rock and metal bands of the 80s and 90s, including Judas Priest, AC/DC, Van Halen, ZZ Top, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, KISS, and Guns N’ Roses.

Not only is this Storm Gaming slot an homage to that hard-rocking event and the great music it witnessed, but it also comes loaded with the famous Megaways feature, licensed by Big Time Gaming. With thousands of possible paylines and endless action, it’s the perfect accompaniment to a heavy metal theme.

Monsters of Rock Megaways Game Features

Monsters of Rock Megaways features 6 reels and anywhere from 2 to 7 rows. The backdrop is a huge stage complete with dazzling strobe lights and pyrotechnics and there is an adoring crowd waiting to see what the band produces.

There are two main base game features to look out for here: Cascading Reels and Megaways. They work together in perfect sync, like Axl Rose and Slash during their peak, right before they decided they hated each other.

Megaways

Megaways works by randomizing the number of symbols that appear on each reel, delivering anywhere from 2 to 7. The paylines are not fixed either, so a win can be formed if enough corresponding symbols appear from one reel to the next. It means that there could be anywhere from a few hundred paylines to over 117,649—you won’t know until you spin the reels!

Cascading Reels

As for Cascading Reels, these kick in after every win. All of the winning symbols will disappear from the grid as new ones fall from above. When more wins are produced, the process repeats and can continue in this manner.

Other features include Mystery Symbols, which look like amplifiers. They land on the reels at random and can then turn into another symbol type, potentially triggering Cascading Reels payouts.

The Pick Me feature is triggered by the Monsters of Rock symbols—just pick one of the options and unlock a prize—while High Voltage triggers at random and removes low-paying symbols from the reels.

Finally, there is the Free Spins Bonus, which is activated by the Flaming Guitar and offers between 12 and 22 spins. The Cascading Reels are turned up to 11 during this feature, as there is an additional multiple that increases by 1x with each win. High Voltage and Mystery Symbols are both active during the main feature and you can also add additional spins to your total by revealing more Scatter symbols.

Verdict: packed with rocking features

Just like the festival on which it is based, Monsters of Rock Megaways is a massive slot that’s packed with action. It will give some old-school rockers a touch of nostalgia for an event that died before the birth of Nu Metal and the resulting rock insurgence. It’s a solid game that’s smartly designed and packed with great features, the highlight of which is the Cascading Reels and Megaways combo.
