In May 2021, the 4th leg of NetEnt’s Megaways slots series brought Dazzle Me Megaways Touch®. For this 4th mobile slot with Megaways engine, NetEnt used Dazzle Me Touch®. It’s one of the many mobile slots developed by NetEnt that proved their success over the years. Therefore, this particular game was chosen as the 4th Megaways mobile slot.
Obviously, it was on the same day that also Dazzle Me Megaways™ found its way to the NetEnt Casinos. Of course, the desktop version comes with the mobile version which are perfect for smaller screens. When you play at a NetEnt Casino, the right version opens automatically.
Dazzle Me Megaways Touch®, as all other Touch® versions, offers the exact same gameplay as the desktop version. Different is the navigation of a Touch® game. When you open Dazzle Me Megaways Touch® on a mobile phone, for example, you will see the spin button on the right of the screen instead of at the bottom. Next to the spin button, you’ll find some extra buttons for different options. These include betting options, sounds, autoplay and menu button.
What is a Megaways Touch® game?
Above, I already explained what is the difference between a desktop game and a Touch® version. A Megaways Touch® game, on the other hand, is a Touch® version of a NetEnt slot and part of the Megaways slots series.
It was in 2016 that Big Time Gaming, now part of Evolution Gaming, launched its first Megaways game. It proved to be an immense success with players and more Megaways games followed. Big Time Gaming decided to share the success with other developers and NetEnt joined the club in 2020. Twin Spin Megaways Touch® was the first, followed by Divine Fortune Megaways Touch® later that year.
2021 brought Fruit Shop Megaways Touch® to the NetEnt Casinos, as well as Dazzle Me Megaways Touch®. All of the Megaways versions are based on NetEnt slots that proved their success.
A Megaways Touch® game offers the successful slot engine made a success by Big Time Gaming. The most important success factor of this slot engine is the diverse number of ways to win. In a standard Megaways Touch® game, the number of symbols on the reels is between 2 and 7. This number continuously changes with each spin, unpredictable and causing lots of extra slots excitement.
While standard slots in this series offer 6 reels with on each reel 2 to 7 symbols and 117649 Megaways, Dazzle Me Megaways Touch® is different. Instead of 6 reels with on each reel the number of symbols, it’s the first Megaways slot from NetEnt with distinctive reels and therefore 99225 ways to win.
The first thing I remembered that was so special about Dazzle Me Touch® are exactly that, the distinctive reels. The game became available in 2015, introducing new innovations such as the distinctive reels.
Now the 5 distinctive reels became 6 distinctive reels and each of the reels now offer a maximum number of symbols. There’s no exact number of symbols available for the distinctive reels, but the maximum number of symbols are 5-5-7-7-9-9, responsible for up to 99225 Megaways.
It’s pretty clear that Dazzle Me Touch® didn’t become successful because of its graphics with only some simple gems and old-fashioned symbols. Of course, we see these same iconic gems and classic slot symbols back in Dazzle Me Megaways Touch®, this time accompanies by a green clover and heart symbol.
Dazzle Me Megaways Touch® features
As mentioned before, the original mobile game never received an award for best graphics. It’s always been a simple game when it comes to looks. It’s the Dazzling Wild reels that made this game a success in the first place, and now the Megaways engine certainly increases the slot’s X factor!
The changing number of Megaways with each spin adds even more excitement to the game, especially since the engine is often combined with what we know as the Avalanche™ feature.
Of course, the Dazzling Wild Reels feature makes a comeback, with Wilds randomly filling reels. The same goes for the Free Spins feature with guaranteed Dazzling Wild Reels. The Free Spins feature is more thrilling with at least one Dazzling Wild Reel available each spin and the number of Wild symbols on the reels increasing with each win!
Dazzling Wild Reels feature
Every time you hit that spin button in Dazzle Me Megaways Touch®, you have the chance to activate one or more Dazzling Wild Reels. When the Dazzling Wild Reels feature activates randomly in the main game, up to 3 reels can be randomly transformed into Dazzling Wild Reels.
During the Free Spins feature, you can be sure that at least one Dazzling Wild reel is available during each Free Spin. In Free Spins, every time you hit that Free Spin Button, at least one reel is turned into a Dazzling Wild Reel.
To add to the excitement in the Free Spins feature, you find counters on top of each reel. The counter starts at 2. They increase whenever Wild symbols on the reels form part of winning combinations.
Dazzling Me Megaways Free Spins
To activate the Free Spins feature in Dazzle Me Megaways Touch®, you need 4 Free Spins symbols anywhere on the reels in the main game. You then activate 8 Free Spins but for each additional Free Spins symbol activates another 4 Free Spins.
For each free spin, at least one Dazzling Wild Reel is available and only Wild symbols can appear on Dazzling Wild Reels during the spins and the Avalanches.
The number of Wild symbols landing on each Dazzling Wild Reel is equal to the Dazzling Wild Counter of that reel. The Dazzling Wild Counters start at 2, no matter what reel, and this number increases every time a Wild symbol on the respective reel becomes part of a winning combination.
