All of this razzmatazz comes down to super high volatility and a way to win up to 41,300x your bet.

Triple Reactions + Cascades
There are 6 reels in this video slot, 6 low-paying and 4 high-paying symbols which come stacked and pay up to 50x for 6-of-a-kind.
What sets the Mint apart from say Bonanza is that instead of one extra reel at the top, this game’s got two – one at the top and one at the bottom. This also makes a difference because only the extra reels can have Wild symbols on them, so there’s double that.
Like Opal Fruits, this BTG slot has reactions too, so all winning symbols always explode to create new, back-to-back winning opportunities. Because there’s x2 Extra Reels and one main reel where the explosions happen, they call them Triple Reactions.
Free Spins with Unlimited Win Multiplier
Get 4 MINT Scatters to get yourself through to the Free Spins bonus with 12 spins to begin with. Any extra Scatters adds +4 freespins, but that’s very unlikely to happen here. The Unlimited Win Multiplier means that every win/cascade will increase the multiplier by +1. You’ll also get +1 free spin for ever 3 Scatters during the feature.
Overall, the Free Spins feature gets triggered every 500-1,000 spins and unless you hit it big, you’re more likely to win around 50x total bet. There’s last glimmer of hope though, it’s called the Heartstopper feature.
Enhanced Heartstopper Free Spins
First introduced in the Lil’ Devil slot, Heartstopper can be a blessing or a curse, depending how seriously you play towards it.
Every time you get 3 Scatters, you collect 1 Gold Bar. Get 40 Gold Bars to unlock the Heartstopper level, which guarantees Enhanced Free Spins on the next bonus trigger. It’ll also make it easier to trigger the feature by adding an extra Scatter to each spin until it’s activated. Note that the Gold Bars will not reset after a regular Free Spins bonus, so you’re pretty much guaranteed to trigger the Heartstopper about every 3h of relentless spinning.
👍 Tip: Do not change the total bet in the midst of your gameplay as this will reset the Heartstopper meter!
The good news! – Once you’re in the Heartstopper Free Spins, you get +2 Win Multiplier instead of regular +1 on each win, starting with 2x on the first spin. You’re not guaranteed to win big, so mind that when you set for the journey with a balance that you’re not prepared to lose a boring base game. Regardless, it’s good to have your finger ready on a screenshot button or your phone handy as sooner or later someone’s bound to break the bank. My biggest win from the enhanced bonus after hours of testing it in demo was just over 70x, whereas my balance had decreased 10x more. Unlucky?
Who’s Going to Break the Bank?
Big Time Gaming’s first game of 2020 is as extreme as they come, so Autoplay, strong nerves and patience will go a long way in Royal Mint MegaWays. Apart from that big win potential and growing anticipation of the Heartstopper feature, the base game can get boring fast. It certainly doesn’t have as much entertainment impact as other “similar” slots like Piggy Riches MegaWays, but if you’re a diehard high volatility fan then this is another win potential-laden BTG game that you should consider adding to your play list.
Royal Mint MegaWays is available exclusively at LeoVegas Casino until 26 February, after which you’ll also find it at other licensed slot sites.
