Base Game

A basic spin of Hypernova Megaways randomly generates from 2 to 7 symbols on reels 1 and 6, and from 2 to 6 symbols on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Coupled with a single row of symbols in a horizontal top reel across reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, this creates from 324 to 117,849 ways to pay. Wins are awarded for matching two or more symbols on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost. Winning combinations explode and disappear, triggering a cascade of existing symbols as well as new ones from above to fill gaps. This sequence can lead to more wins, in which case, the process repeats until no more wins occur.

The pay symbols start at the low end with 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, which award from 0.5x to 1.2x your bet for matching six-of-a-kind. Blue, green, and red gemstones represent the mid-payers, awarding 2x to 5x bet for six across the reels. Lastly, scoring six diamond symbols from left to right will pay a whopping 100x your stake. Assisting with wins is the wild symbol, which substitutes all others except for the supernova scatter symbol. Scatters trigger the Jackpot Respins Bonus when landing five or more on a spin.

Bonus Game

Hit five or more scatters to trigger the Jackpot Respins. The round starts with the layout determined by the Megaways game engine and a counter display showing three respins. Each triggering scatter is locked in place till the end of the feature and awarded a value from 1x to 100x bet. Lastly, before the round begins, the reel set is changed to feature blank positions, scatters, or jackpot symbols.

Hypernova Megaways Jackpot Respins

Should a scatter or jackpot symbol land on a respin, it is locked in place and the count of three respins is replenished. Failing to land a scatter or jackpot symbol reduces the count by one. When three respins expire, the sum of all locked scatters and jackpot prizes in view is awarded. There are four fixed jackpot amounts of 10x, 50x, 250x and 2,000x your bet. Furthermore, jackpot prizes can be won up to 42 times.

Hypernova Megaways – Final Thoughts

Accentuated by orchestral chords, Hypernova Megaways is an atmospheric game. The gameplay is simple yet enthrallingly entertaining, and the medium volatility math is evident, particularly if you’re a Megaways regular. This adds an encouraging win frequency to the straightforward design. Not many Megaways are as keen to trigger a bonus round, and though, since release, the occasional game has followed suit, Hypernova Megaways remains a highly popular alternative to the standard Megaways routine.
