Rock Out With Rasputin Megaways Slot
The original Rasputin song was released by German-based pop group Boney M. However, the version that most modern audiences will be familiar with is the Majestic remix that was released in 2021 and became a worldwide sensation thanks in no small part to TikTok. So, now that the song’s popularity has died down, why not release a slot, right?
Report to the dance floor!
The slot has a unique wild symbol. Every wild that appears on the reels will reveal a number and add that many symbols to the screen. Each wild can add up to 48 symbols in the base game and up to 60 symbols during free spins. This feature can grow each reel to ten symbols high in the base game and 12 during free spins. Wilds only appear on reels two and five.
The slot’s party piece is, however, its pair of free spins rounds. With the appearance of three or more scatters on the reels, you’ll unlock a round of the slot’s free spins. Once you do, you’ll get to choose between two different rounds of free spins.
If you select Big & Strong free spins you’ll get a round of seven free spins with extending reels. During this round of free spins, reels can expand to up to 12 symbols high, and each time a reel expands you’ll be awarded three extra free spins.
If you go for Ecstasy & Fire free spins, you’ll get a round of 10 free spins with an unlimited win multiplier. This feature adds a 1x multiplier to a global multiplier for every fifth symbol that Rasputin Wilds add to the reels. Ecstasy & Fire free spins are retriggerable with three scatter symbols awarding four extra free spins with two more free spins being added to your total with each additional scatter symbol beyond the three-symbol minimum.
The slot also has an interesting win exchange feature that allows you to trade a 100x or more win for your selection of either round of free spins. This is not a feature I’ve seen much of in any slot game, and I’m not really sure what to make of it.
If you’re not keen on waiting around for your favorite song, you can also select to buy a round of the slot’s free spins.
Is Rasputin Megaways slot ready for the dance floor?
Rasputin is, to say the least, a controversial figure in the history of Russia. Not only is he generally considered to be a womanizer, again that’s the PG version, but he’s also widely considered to be the catalyst that caused the downfall of the Tsars. All in all, not someone you would generally think would make an appropriate character for a slot game, well, unless you’re Nolimit City that is. That 2021 song, however, has put a thick layer of sugarcoating on the story of Rasputin.
Despite my moral objections, Rasputin Megaways slot is overall pretty good. The graphics are bright and fun, the music and sound effects perfect, and the gameplay entertaining. The high volatility does mean that you’ll be waiting longer than you’d like between wins, but thanks to the 67,330x max multiplier when you do hit those wins, you’re in for a few big ones even if you’re betting at the €0.10 minimum. The slot also has a 96.68% RTP.
