Mega MeltdownCaution: Dangerous player excitement levels ahead. This game is hot – so hot it’s in danger of melting down! But don’t worry at all, because this is one kind of meltdown that players will love to see coming.

Mega Meltdown is a 3-reel, 1-payline mechanical game with a 6-tier progressive that players will enjoy so much that they’ll be begging for more. The Mega Progressive is awarded when the player bets the max and the Mega symbol lands on the payline on the first reel in a winning combination. The Mega symbol is wild and substitutes for any symbol that also lands on the payline to form winning combinations.

If the fourth credit side bet is played, the winning combination pays the corresponding progressive prize instead of the normal line prize. Random winning combinations will trigger the reels to re-spin up to four times, and could award up to one of the Progressive awards.

Mega Meltdown is sure to light a fire under players who enjoy traditional spinning reel slot machines.
