Defend the city walls on the new Valletta Megaways slot game

With one of the most unique themes to have ever existed in a slot game, the game promises to be a hit all over the world

Valletta: Malta’s stunning, fortified capital city, established in the 500s on our islands, by the Knights of St John. Known for its beautiful museums, palaces and churches, every inch of the city is culturally, as well as historically, rich. Keeping the city’s history in mind, wouldn’t you agree that Valletta would be the perfect backdrop for a game? We definitely think so.

Enter: Valletta Megaways, by Blueprint Gaming. With one of the most unique themes to have ever existed in a slot game, the game promises to be a hit all over the world. What’s more, BluePrint Gaming LTD is a leading UK-based game studio, as well as a part of Germany’s Gauselmann Group.

First up, let’s talk about how impressive the game’s set up and theme is. The slot game depicts an epic battle, featuring knights, cannons, swords and shields, and references the Great Siege of Malta, which took place back in 1565. Though there are a few games with similar themes, such as Poltava and Crusader from ELK Studios, Valletta Megaways really is one of a kind.

How does Valletta Megaways work?

You may be under the impression that Valletta Megaways is simply a slot game, but you would be mistaken. The game is an homage to the heartland of the iGaming industry, the southernmost capital of Europe, the capital of Malta. To give you just a little bit of context, Malta’s capital of Valletta has had an impressively long and rather turbulent history. Countless battles have occurred within the city, with the most notable being that of the Ottoman Empire, which took place during the Second World War. During this battle, the majority of the city was completely destroyed.

In order to pay homage to the historically rich city, Valletta Megaways has a similar feel and follows in the footsteps of the game that surfaced in 2018, Napoleon. The game offers high volatility, super potential and a thrilling warfare narrative.

In a nutshell, there are six reels in the game, with each one displaying between two and seven symbols. The more symbols appear on each reel, the more you can win; up to a total of 15,625 in fact. Cash in when you land three or more matching symbols on adjacent positions across the reels. The standard symbol set includes nine to A royals, as well as more valuable swords, shields, maps and lions. The lions are by far, the most rewarding symbol, with six on a payline, giving you no less than 25 times your stake. The Knight is the wild and only appears on reels two to six. It substitutes for all symbol bar the scatter. Finnish players can also check out to check out all their super playing options.

What about the spins and bonuses?

Now we’re talking! The base game already offers up some generous bonuses for its players, as the it comes with three game modifiers, which may either add extra scatters and wilds at the reels, or award the Valletta Streaks feature. The former, referred to as the Random Knights Wilds, helps you to land a win. The latter, when triggered, allows you to enhance your overall winning potential even more. The game also features Arrow Spin Respins. When this feature is implemented, arrows rain down on the screen, to lock the winning symbols in place, offering players a re-spin.

Many Blueprint Gaming slot games are action-packed and exciting and Valletta Megaways is no exception. Though the game does borrow elements from other popular games such as Jackpot Genies Megaways, what makes this one different is the overall gameplay, as well as the look and feel of the slot game. Just in case you’re a history buff or intrigued by the audiovisual presentation, Valletta Megaways would definitely be the game for you. The volatility of the game offers that much more excitement, offering a maximum win potential of 10,000 times your stake!
