The symbols in Valletta Megaways are less worth than in most other Megaways slots. The golden tiger which we would see on a knight’s flag is only worth 25x the size of your bet when you hit 6 of them (1 on each reel). In Wolf Legend Megaways you get at least twice as much if you hit 6 premium symbols. The reason why the symbols are worth less might have something to do with the so-called Valletta streak. We will explain this feature later on. The knights are the wild symbols and substitute for all symbols except the bonus symbols. In order to calculate the exact value of the symbols, you need to multiply the value with your bet size.
Valletta Megaways doesn’t have a lot of ways to win and doesn’t have cascading symbols. But there is something unique about this Megaways slot which makes it exciting and fun to play. On every win you can randomly trigger the Valletta streak in the base game. In this feature the winning symbols will be locked and the remaining reels will get a respin. If you manage to connect more winning symbols, they will be locked again and the other reels will have another respin. This special feature will repeat itself until you don’t hit any new connecting symbols. The best thing about the Valletta streak feature in Valletta Megaways is that you get multiple chances to fill your whole screen with the same symbol. Every win you hope the Valletta streak will be activated and that makes every spin exciting. The scenery and choice of symbols make Valletta Megaways also a fun slot to play.
