88 Fortune Megaways™ is a 6 reel slot from Bally that makes use of the Megaways™ pay mechanic that is under license from Big Time Gaming. Through the use of this reel modifying engine, 88 Fortunes Megaways™ can offer players up to 117,649 ways to win.
There are a staggering amount of bet sizes to play 88 Fortunes at, and players can choose to start spinning the reels from as little as €0.08, whilst the maximum bet size for any high roller is €88. Part of the reason there are so many options available is because you can choose to upgrade the value of the higher paying symbols, and to do this you simply choose from the gold symbol credits that are located on to the right hand side of the reels. In a nutshell if you choose to play the full 5 gold symbols instead of 1 it will increase the bet size by x11.

WINNING SYMBOLS WILL BE REMOVED AND REPLACED WITH NEW ONES ON 88 FORTUNES MEGAWAYS™
REEL CASCADES WILL TAKE PLACE TO REPLACE WINNING SYMBOLS ON 88 MEGAWAYS™
As a rule of thumb, if a Megaways™ slot contains 117,649 paylines then it will also feature cascading reels, and this is again the case with 88 Fortunes Megaways™. Each time a winning combination is made on the reels, or with the help of the additional lower reel, those symbols will be removed and replaced with new ones. This can give players the chance to hit multiple wins in the base game, and does offer some paying potential if you can hit the maximum amount of ways on one of your spins.

Landing the following amount of gongs in the free spins feature only will award you the corresponding amount of extra spins.

88 FORTUNES MEGAWAYS™ SLOT REVIEW FINAL THOUGHTS
Some remakes work, and some don't. Unfortunately in our opinion 88 Fortunes Megaways™ falls into the latter category. To really get anything out of the game pay wise, like you can in other Megaways™ Slots, you need to be playing at the maximum amount of gold symbols, and for some players this is just going to be too much in terms of their playing budget.
It was noticeable in the SG Gaming releases that were Rainbow Riches Megaways™, and Raging Rhino Megaways™, that the cascading reels seem to take an age to fall down and calculate the wins, for some players we're sure this won't be an issue, but it was really noticeable on this slot for us and we quickly became bored of it in all honesty.
Fans of the original slot may find this a welcome addition to the Megaways™ portfolio, but this isn't one that we will be revisiting anytime soon for some gameplay.
