Wild Portals Megaways: Slot Overview

Players! Gear up for a bit of oontz-oontz in the futuristically funky Wild Portals Megaways from the device's own maker, Big Time Gaming. BTG has occasionally sent players back to the future, thematically speaking, in some of their experimentally minded slots, such as Star Clusters or Cyberslot Megaclusters. And while Wild Portals Megaways might share a few thematic similarities to those games, its features have more in common with others from the illustrious BTG back catalogue. Wild Portals Megaways is its own beast, however, so if you're ready to throw some serious shapes, let's take a look.

If Spock, Kirk, and the crew ever had a rave on the bridge of the Starship Enterprise, it would probably look a lot like Wild Portals Megaways. Who'd DJ in that scenario? Scotty knew all about engineering, but there is a sneaky suspicion it'd be Chekov, Uhura or Sulu bringing the funk. Anyway, back in reality, Wild Portals Megaways brings its own funk via a driving hard-house soundtrack and an elaborate light show. We're not totally sold on the visuals, though, as the game possesses a look which is kind of new yet unadventurous at the same time.

In Wild Portals Megaways, players can get their groove on any device by choosing bets from 20 p/c to £/€20 per spin. Mathematically, the game is as on point as ever from this team, churning out a single RTP value of 96.58% in a highly volatile way. The Megaways grid set-up is pretty straightforward, where the 6 reels of the game grid hold 2 to 7 symbols each, producing up to 117,649 ways to win. All in all, Wild Portals Megaways might look futuristic in some ways but plays out on a conventionally set up game panel.

Shiny jewel-like card royals 9-A make up the lower end of the paytable, while green, blue, red, and purple gems make up the highs. As to values, landing six low pay card symbols across the reels is worth 0.3-0.5x the bet, rising to 0.6-10x for six premiums. The other two symbols in the game are wilds (called Wild Portals), which replace any normal pay symbol, as well as gold scatters that trigger the bonus game - covered next.

Wild Portals Megaways: Slot Features

Wild Portal symbols land on reels 2 to 5 in 2x2 size, and after any wins have been paid, they open to reveal a low-value symbol. All instances of this revealed symbol type are removed from the reels, and each one removed increases the Wild Portal Multiplier by +1. New symbols drop into the spaces left by the removed symbols, and the Wild Portal may reveal a different symbol. This feature repeats until no instances of the revealed symbol type occur. Any wins using the Wild Portal are multiplied by its value.

Free Spins

When at least 3 scatter symbols land, 8 free spins are awarded - plus you get 2 extra spins for each additional scatter in view. During the bonus round, the Wild Portal is guaranteed to trigger in every free spin, and if it was present on the triggering spin, it is carried over (including the multiplier value, of course). Also, the Wild Portal retains its multiplier between free spins, only resetting once the feature comes to an end. Should 3 scatters land, +2 additional scatters are awarded, plus 2 more for each scatter in view beyond 3.

Win Exchange

Triggering free spins organically can be quite a task, so BTG has included their Win Exchange feature to potentially speed up the process. How it works is when payers score a win of 75x their bet or more, they can exchange 75x worth of it for 8 free spins. Alternatively, if you win between 25-75 times your stake, you can gamble the lot on a red and green segmented wheel for a chance to win 8 free spins.

Wild Portals Megaways: Slot Verdict

Hopefully, you're feeling patient, because there are rewards to be found in Wild Portals Megaways for fortunate players willing to put in a bit of work. Like a few BTG games we've reviewed recently, Apollo Pays Megaways being a prime example, you might have to settle in for a lengthy grind to get to the good bits. Perhaps the general lack of activity is more noticeable because BTG removed the cascade feature that usually runs hand in hand with Megaways. Strange in a way, because the Wild Portal action removes symbols and replaces them with new ones like a cascade feature.

The good news is the Wild Portal extra landed often enough to break up the flow and keep us second-guessing. It's a pretty good feature, too and can build a decent multiplier after a few repeat symbol removals. Yet, symbol values themselves aren't great. For example, the second most valuable symbol is only worth 1x the bet for an unmodified six of a kind hit. In other words, you'll probably need a significant multiplier on hand for the thrilling stuff to happen. This is where The Final Countdown-esque free spins come into play since the Wild Portal is present on every spin, and its multiplier persists until the feature ends.

If damage is going to be done, free spins are where it is most likely to occur, and the results when Wild Portals Megaways is firing can be staggering. In the base game, payouts blast as high as 26,900x, rocketing to a truly stellar 116,030x the bet in free spins. Such is the potential power of having a big wild and even bigger multiplier on board.

In some ways, Wild Portals Megaways is classic BTG. It's got red hot stats, and if you're lucky, can absolutely go off. Other areas, such as the same-same look, and the clever yet underwhelming (for BTG) feature feel unfulfilled. Fair dues, satisfying gaming can be found in Wild Portals Megaways; it just might take a bit of luck coupled with serious dedication to extract it.
