Lucky Nuggets Megaways: Game Design & Symbols
Blueprint Gaming’s latest slot has a 6-reel gird structure that can hold up to five symbols. Each of the symbols rests on a mine and is surrounded by symbols like gold, rocks, and lanterns. To score a win, a player must land identical symbols on adjacent reels, from left to right. Players can benefit from different ways to win on each spin since the total number of symbols on the reels will vary. A player must match at least a pair of two high-value symbols in order to trigger a winning way. Matching at least three of the low-paying symbols will also generate a winning way.
The gold cart is the highest paying symbol as it rewards players with a 200x the initial bet for matching six symbols. The rewards go down to between 50 and 100x the bet for matching lantern, helmet, and mining tools symbols.
A combination of at least six nugget symbols or diamond symbols will generate a 10x the bet win. Low-value cards ranking from 10 to A will generate wins worth 2.5x to 5x the initial bet. The game also features a wild symbol represented by the Prospector that will show up in the bonus round and help players collect the Gold Nuggets symbols. In order to trigger the Free Spins bonus round, a player must land at least three bonus symbols.
How to Grab More Golden Riches
A minimum of four Lucky Prospector symbols will bring players extra spins and a boosted multiplier for any future wins. Landing the Lucky Prospector symbol 12 times while playing the Free Spins round will generate an x10 scatter multiplier or a diamond symbol worth x2000 the stake. The game also features modifiers including the Big Blast Bonanza and Gold Rush which can be triggered on random occasions to bring even more gold out on the surface.
Blueprint Gaming’s director of key accounts and marketing UK Jo Purvis strongly believes the mining adventure theme will stay a “firm favorite” with its players, explaining why the new title has been elevated with the Free Spins bonus round and the Megaways mechanics. At the end of January, Blueprint Gaming announced it would expand its partnership with Banijay Brands. Last October, the developer decided to expand its presence in LatAm by integrating its products with content aggregator Salsa Tech Integration.
