Megadeth Slot Machine

There's been a recent trend for music-themed slots in the gambling world. Notably, NetEnt have come out with Jimi Hendrix, Motorhead, and Guns N Roses in quick succession. And with official branded tie-ins, it has allowed the online casino developer to feature actual concert footage, real music, and images of the musicians.

Not generally known for their branded slots, Leander Games have nevertheless dived in with a great little game - Megadeth - based on the legendary US thrash metal band. Let's turn this up to 11 and see if the Megadeth video slot rrrrrrrrocks.

Go Metal for 40 Real Cash Paylines

If you're not familiar with the band, Megadeth were one of the pioneering thrash metal bands that came out of the US in the 1980s. They went on to sell over 25 million records around the world, and albums like 1990's Rust In Peace went platinum.

It's the band members who feature prominently in this online slot, along with a bonus feature dedicated to one of Megadeth's biggest hits - Hangar 18. The single was featured on the Rust In Peace album.

Megadeth is played on a set of 4x5 reels, with 40 paylines fixed. It would have been good to find 50 paylines here, but the addition of a special 'Mega Nudge' feature makes up for that.

With this added bonus, you'll have to add on a stake worth 40x your current line bet (or equal to your total bet). It gives the player 1, 2, or 3 "nudges" to move Reels 2, 3 or 4 up or down to complete a better winning combination. If there's no better combo available, the reels won't move.

As for coins, they start at just 0.01, so the Mega Nudge can be pretty affordable for most gamblers.

Land Wild Mustaines for Bigger Wins

There are 10 regular symbols in the free Megadeth slot. A guitar plectrum, signed by lead singer Dave Mustaine, and the Marshall amp both pay out 10x-50x for 3-5 of a kind. The drum pays 15x-75x, while the three guitars pay from 15x-25x for 3OAK up to 75x-100x as a top jackpot.

The band members are the high limit payers. Chris Broderick, Shawn Drover and David Ellefson have come and gone (and come back again) in real life, but they're immortalised here in a more recent band line-up. Ellefson pays out the best prizes, with 5OAK dishing out 300x line bet to players. The Megadeth logo pays 500x as a top jackpot, but you can also pick up 5x for landing just two matching icons.

Dave Mustaine Goes Wild and Expands

Lead singer/guitarist, and driving force behind Megadeth, Dave Mustaine, is the game's Wild symbol. He will substitute for all regular icons other than the Scatter symbols. He also expands to fill an entire reel.

Three BONUS Vic Rattlehead symbols (he's the band's mascot) will trigger Megadeth's Multigame and Multilevel bonus. But first you'll have to spin the prize wheel to determine your bonus game. You can also advance to a next level (1-3) for bigger and better rewards:

  • HANGAR 18: Based on the band's crazy alien conspiracy-inspired video, Hangar 18 features free spins over three levels. The player can earn 5-8 spins on Level 1, 8-11 spins on Level 2, and 12-15 spins on Level 3. During the feature, a Sticky Wild Mustaine appears and will lock in position for the whole bonus.
  • HEAD CRUSHER: Another of the band's hit singles, Head Crusher, inspires the second bonus game to choose. It's really a classic Pick 'Em Bonus game where the punter has to select prisoners. A female prisoner awards a prize while a male prisoner decreases it.
  • INSTANT WIN: If you don't trigger one of the two bonus games, a straight real cash prize may be awarded.

Play the Free Megadeth Slot Today

If you're a fan of heavy metal or the band itself, Megadeth is a slick online slot to play. There's little in the way of official "music" from the band in the game, and the band line-up was dismantled about a year after the slot came out. Still, it's a good celebration of all things Megadeth.

The slot is certainly volatile, but if you gamble with the Mega Nudge feature the RTP is displayed as high as 96.9%. Give it a try and play for free, then test out Jimi Hendrix and Motorhead to compare the three.
