The latest game to employ the groundbreaking Megaclusters gaming technology, Cyberlsot Megaclusters is a colourful, fast-moving new slot from Big Time Gaming. Cyberlsot Megaclusters builds on the revolutionary gameplay first seen in Star Clusters and takes it to another level, adding a new and improved dimension to the action.
Featuring roaming Wild symbols, ‘reacting’ symbols that split into 9 smaller symbols on a win, unlimited multipliers and a free spins bonus round, this is a game that will be popular with players who like fast-paced gameplay, plenty of action on the screen, and the chance to land big payouts during the bonus round.
How to play
This is a 3 reel, 3 row video slot, where one symbol at the beginning of each spin during base play is split in to 9 smaller symbols. Wins pay in combinations of 5 or more adjacent symbols of any size, either horizontally or vertically, and 20 lines are automatically in play on each spin. Bets range in size from £0.20 to £20, and wins are multiples of the total bet.
When you hit a winning combination, each regular-sized symbol featured in the win explodes and is then replaced by 9 smaller symbols. If another win results from this, these symbols explode and disappear from the reels, and the remaining symbols drop down to fill the empty spaces on the reels (called a ‘reaction’). New symbols then cascade in from the top to take their place, and this continues until there are no more winning combinations, meaning you can pick up multiple wins from a single spin.
Cyberlsot Megaclusters features a Wild symbol, which substitutes for all other symbols, except the Roaming Wild.
The Roaming Wild symbol takes the place of one of the 9 regular symbols on every spin. Each time it features in a winning combination, it moves position and is then replaced by 9 smaller symbols. The Roaming Wild comes with an unlimited multiplier, which starts at 1x and increases by 1x after the first reaction, and a further 1x with every second reaction after that.
- 25 x purple gems = 25x total bet (up to £500)
- 25 x red gems = 25x total bet (up to £500)
- 25 x blue gems = 25x total bet (up to £500)
- 20-24 x purple gems = 25x total bet (up to £500)
- 20-24 x red gems = 20x total bet (up to £400)
- 20-24 x blue gems = 20x total bet (up to £400)
The maximum jackpot win is 23,960 x total bet (£479,200 when betting the maximum). The jackpot can be won during the free spins bonus round for hitting the maximum number of Megaclusters with multipliers in play.
The free spins bonus is triggered when 12 or more reactions occur during the base game. 6 free spins are awarded and each bonus round begins with 9 rows and 9 reels (81 symbols in total). The Roaming Wild multiplier that is in play when the free spins are triggered remains in place, and each time a Roaming Wild symbol moves to a new position, it is replaced by 4 smaller symbols.
The Roaming Wild multiplier increases 1x every time if features in a reaction, and when it reaches 10x during the free spins, an additional 2 free spins are awarded and the Rainbow Roaming Wild symbol comes into play. This is an additional wild symbol that also has an unlimited multiplier that begins at 1x and increases by 1 each time it features in a reaction.
Graphics and Sounds
In appearance, Cyberlsot Megaclusters is not dissimilar to Starburst, with coloured gems as symbols and the reels set against a neon purple computer screen background. There are overtones of 1980s arcade games as well, and so the overall look and feel of the game is a combination of a retro-style graphics and fast-paced, modern gameplay.
The pumping soundtrack is a mix of 198os electro-pop that keeps the energy levels high throughout, and it blends in well with the early video game look, although the classic slot machine clicking sound as the reels rotate does feel a little out of place.
Cyberlsot Megaclusters is the sort of game where you feel you don’t want to take your eyes off the screen for a moment. With the cascading reels and reactions, Roaming Wild symbols and exploding wins, there is always something happening on the screen. This is a game designed to appeal to those who like non-stop gameplay where something new is always going on.
At the same time, this is not the sort of slots game where you should expect to win big during base play. Although the wins can come thick and fast and are regularly boosted by multipliers, it is the free spin round where the really big payouts are to be found. However, with a RTP of 96.36%, the game nevertheless offers good rewards at all stages, and when combined with the hectic pace of the gameplay, is likely to prove a hit.
