One of the best new online pokies I can recommend keeping an eye out for in August 2021 is the new Blue Wizard Megaways online pokie from Rarestone Gaming and Playtech. It’s a Fire Blaze Jackpots slot, and there are 5 reels and up to 12,348 different ways to win per spin. There are four Fire Blaze Jackpots up for grabs – the Mini Jackpot (worth 20X times your total stake), the Minor Jackpot (50X), the Major Jackpot (500X) and the Grand Jackpot (2,000X), and the max win on any lucky spin is capped at a cool 10,000x times your total stake.
The game is available in the real money mode and free play demo mode, and the wide betting range lets you take one spin of the reels from as little as NZ$0.10 per spin up to a maximum of NZ$250 per spin. The most important symbols to keep an eye out for are the Blue Wizard Wild Symbols, the Crystal Ball Bonus Symbols, and the Castle Scatter Symbols, and the three main bonus features you can look forward to are the Lightning Wild Multipliers feature, the Free Spins Bonus, and the Fire Blaze Jackpots Respins feature.
Let’s start by taking a quick look at the Lightning Wild Multipliers feature, which will instantly trigger when the Lightning Bolt lands in the upper reel that spins horizontally above reels 2, 3 and 4. If you happen to land a Wild Symbol directly below, a random 2X, 4X, 8X, or 16X multiplier will be applied to any line wins that are currently in view. It’s that simple.
The Free Spins Bonus will instantly trigger when 3 or more Castle Scatter Symbols show up on the same spin. You will start with 6 Free Spins, and on each Free Spin, you are more likely to land Lightning Bolts in the upper horizontal reel. Finally, you have the Fire Blaze Jackpots Respins feature, which will only ever trigger when 6 or more Crystal Balls land anywhere in view.
Each Crystal Ball comes with either a Jackpot Symbol or Cash Prize attached, and the aim of this feature is to try and land as many Crystal Balls as possible (preferably with Jackpot Symbols rather than Cash Prizes) before the respin counter reaches zeros. You will start the feature with 3 respins, and any Crystal Balls that were in view when the feature triggered will lock in place. Each time another Crystal Ball lands during the feature, it too will lock in place and reset the respin counter to 3. When you have run out of respins, all prizes that are in view will be calculated and paid out.
If you want to be one of the first New Zealand players to try out the new Blue Wizard Megaways pokie (the first Megaways pokie from Playtech), go to Casino.com or Slots Heaven Casino. Secure links to both casinos can be found in our trusted Kiwi online casino reviews section.
