- A new slot that has some great detail in the design
- Focuses mainly on the free spins which are available to buy
- Highly volatile, offering big payouts but at a greater risk
Valletta Megaways slot from Blueprint Gaming offers an impressive 15,625 ways to win for those who dare to play it, with some big rewards up for grabs also. It’s a fairly standard Megaways type slot in that it’s highly volatile, offering big rewards but at a bigger risk than others. If that’s your kind of game, then keep reading.
What I do like about this game is the design. It’s got quite a dark, mirky theme which works well, and some lovely graphics with smooth animations in the background like the movement of water. The reels are fairly simple and the symbols too, but overall it’s very impressive. Moving on, in order to actually play the game you must spin the reels. This is a Megaways slot, so wins are awarded from left to right with adjacent symbols and payouts are multiplied by the stake. Each symbol has a different payout and these are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 9, 10 or Jack (lowest value)
- Queen, King or Ace
- Sword or Shield
- Banner (highest value)
Don’t think that these are the only symbols in Valletta slot though. There is also a Wild symbol, shown as a knight, which will substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Bonus symbol, which I’ll go into in more detail shortly.
Valletta Slot Bonuses and Features
Valletta Streak. This is a feature which can trigger on any random winning spin and will award you with a spinning streak. The winning symbols which triggered the feature will be held in place while the remaining symbols resin. This means you could potential add to your current wins for better payouts.
Free Spins Bonus. As usual, this type of Bonus is triggered by 3 or more Bonus symbols, shown as cannons. Depending on how many you land on a single spin anywhere on the reels, you’ll be given a certain number of free spins. 3 of them will give you just 10 free spins, 4 will give you 12 free spins, 5 will give you 15 and 6 will give you 20. During this Bonus, the Valletta Streak feature will trigger on every winning spin. Furthermore, filling a reel with winning symbols will grant you additional free spins.
Bonus Bet. As with many slots these days, you’ll notice on the right hand side of the reels an option to buy the Free Spins Bonus. This is done for a total cost of 100x your stake. The RTP is slightly improved here, but as always, it’s quite a gamble and without questions a way to lose a lot of money in quick succession if you buy the Bonus regularly, so be sure to have a good enough bankroll should you deice to use it frequently.
Valletta slot from Blueprint Gaming is a pretty standard Megaways slot. The main appeal comes from the Free Spins Bonus which enhances the Valletta Streak, a fairly simple feature that can trigger during the base game also, but less often. The features aren’t bad, but they aren’t exactly original either. What is more unique is the theme and design of the slot which I actually really like, and the music sounds good too. It’s important to remember though that this is a highly volatile stake. While you can win up to 10,000x your bet on a single spin, you could also go for long periods without winning a penny and your money will quickly drain. All in all, it’s not a bad game but there are plenty others out there that are similar. You can check out some of Blueprint’s other slots here.
