Lucky Nuggets Megaways Slot Overview

Lucky Nuggets Megaways is a new casino slot from Blueprint Gaming where we get to go mining for gold. Several features are packed into this gold-digging experience. A white-bearded prospector shows up in the free spins, substituting all symbols – and collecting cash prizes for all visible gold. The prospector can also boost extra free spins, add a win multiplier up to 10X, and trigger the Gold Rush and Big Blast Bonanza features. A bonus game almost identical to what we have seen previously in the Big Bass Bonanza series. Just follow this guy, and he’ll take you to the riches, accompanied by banjo music.

Base game

Lucky Nuggets Megaways is a video slot from Blueprint Gaming with 6 reels and 2-5 rows that change every spin. There are 15625 ways to win with the maximum number of rows. The Min.bet is 0.10 and the Max.bet is 10. Gold mining the Lucky Nuggets way is done to an RTP of 95.50%. The game’s volatility is high, and Blueprint Gaming claims that the max win is 50000X the bet, although that number sounds too good to be true.

Several features that can bring gold to the player are hidden in the sweaty underground environment. The features are Scatter Symbol, Special Symbols, Wild Symbol, Free Spins, Gold Collecting Feature, Gold Rush, Big Blast Bonanza, and Lucky Nuggets Upgrade.

Lucky Nuggets Megaways Slot Information

Gold mining is a super popular theme among casino slots, so Blueprint Gaming won’t be first or last with the release of Lucky Nuggets. Some other games we’ve seen are the newly released Misery Mining xBomb and Gold Collector: Diamond Edition, and older ones like Gold Digger and Gold Rush. Lucky Nuggets Megaways is set underground in a mine, with barrels of glimmering gold next to the reels. On top of the reels sits the Megaways counter, telling the player how many ways to win each spin has. The Megaways mechanic, developed by Big Time Gaming, has been used by a bunch of game developers by now. The mechanic changes the number of rows on the reels on every spin. In Lucky Nuggets Megaways, each of the 6 reels can contain up to 5 positions, making up to 15625 ways to win. To make a winning line, you need to land 3 of the same symbols on adjacent reels going left to right, starting with the first reel to the left. The game is available on desktops, notepads, and mobile phones.

The least valuable symbols down in the gold mine are 10, J, Q, K, and A. They pay 0.3X-0.5X for a win of 3 symbols and 2.5X-5X for a combination of 6. Moving up a level, we find a gas lamp and digging tools, paying 2X-3X for 3 and 50X-100X for a winning line of 6. The most valuable symbol is a train wagon full of gold. It pays 0.5X the bet if you land 2, and 200X the bet for 6. There’s also some special gold and diamond symbols with values between X2 and X2000. Their specific values can only be paid out during specific circumstances in the free spins, but these symbols can be combined in any way to make wins in the base game. Landing 3 of them pays 1X the bet, and a combination of 6 gold coins and/or diamonds pays 10X the bet. The Scatter Symbol is a picture of a tunnel, saying “bonus.” There’s also a Wild Symbol in the shape of a prospector. He only appears in the free spins, where he also can trigger the Gold Collecting, Gold Rush, and Big Blast Bonanza features.

Activation - Free Spins

Scatter Symbol

The Scatter Symbol shows a picture of a tunnel in the gold mine. You need to land 3 scatters anywhere on the grid to activate 10 free spins. Landing 4, 5, and 6 scatters award you 15, 20, and 25 free spins. The scatter doesn’t appear in the free spins.

Special Symbols

The special symbols are pieces of gold and a diamond. The gold pieces come with the values 2X, 5X, 10X, 15X, 20X, 25X, and 50X. The diamond is worth 2000X the bet. The values are only important in the Gold Collecting feature in the free spins and don’t matter in the base game. In the base game, you can combine any of the 8 special symbols to make a winning line, paying from 1X the bet for 3 to 10X the bet for 6.

Wild Symbol

A gray-bearded prospector with a glimmering rock of gold in his right hand is the Wild Symbol of Lucky Nuggets Megaways. He only appears in the free spins, and he can perform some other cool magic tricks too. Apart from substituting all symbols, he also collects the values of special symbols and randomly triggers the Gold Rush and the Big Blast Bonanza features.

Free Spins

Free Spins

Landing at least 3 scatter symbols takes you here. The free spins are valuable in many different ways since they have the wild symbol, which can trigger several other features. The scatter symbols don’t appear in the free spins, but you can win extra spins through the Lucky Nuggets Upgrade.

Gold Collecting Feature

Whenever the wild prospector lands, he will collect the values of all visible special symbols (gold pieces and diamonds). The special symbols can still also pay by making winning lines the regular way. Remember that the wild symbol only appears in the free spins, so this feature will never trigger in the base game.

Gold Rush

The wild gold collector randomly activates this feature by holding all special symbols on the reels and respinning the rest. If at least one special symbol lands on any position, it will also be held while the reels spin once again. The feature is over when no special symbols land and the wild collector collects the value of all special symbols.

Big Blast Bonanza

This is also a feature that the wild symbol randomly activates in the free spins. The old man will throw dynamite at a random reel, turning all positions into special symbols.

Lucky Nuggets Upgrade

You probably thought that was all the wild prospector could do, but this fellow has yet another special trick. Whenever the prospector lands, he will be collected in the Lucky Nuggets Upgrade Bar. Whenever you reach four collected prospectors, you’ll be awarded 10 more free spins and a X2 multiplier on every spin. Landing 4 more prospectors award 10 more free spins and an X4 multiplier. If you manage to land another 4 prospectors, a total of 12, you’ll be awarded 15 free spins and an X10 multiplier.

Lucky Nuggets Megaways Slot Conclusion

A visit to this mine feels more likable than the most people probably experienced the dirty work during the California Gold Rush in the mid-1800s. The banjo music also takes us back in time with happy melodies. The barrels of glimmer gold and the other details look like they’re taken from Scrooge McDuck’s treasures or some other cartoon. This game uses the Megaways mechanic that constantly changes the number of symbols on the reels, but it doesn’t use cascading wins as many other Megaways games. We don’t mind that the wins can’t go on forever, though. The number of features is more than satisfying, but the fact that they’re all packed into the free spins is a little disappointing.

The special symbols of gold and diamonds are smartly made, and we like that they can make regular wins in the base game while becoming more valuable in the free spins. Many slots use special symbols that don’t pay anything in the base game, which sometimes results in them just being in the way, hindering winning lines. Once the player manages to activate the free spins, many cool features await. First of all, the wild gold prospector will probably become your best friend, starting to collect all the special symbols on the grid whenever he turns up.

The prospector can also trigger both the Gold Rush and the Big Blast Bonanza. They both give something extra to the game, and we’re especially fond of the first one. If that wasn’t all, the prospector could also help out by winning more free spins, making this a long spin party. Something that doesn’t impress at all is the RTP of 95.50%, unfortunately quite a bit under the average RTP. Blueprint Gaming usually states the max win of new releases to 50000X, but many players out there question that number. If you could score such a max win in this highly volatile game, it would be amazing.

Lucky Nuggets Megaways from Blueprint Gaming is a gold mining adventure where a wild prospector can collect diamonds worth 2000X each and a max win of 50000X the bet.
