Rick and Morty Megaways follow the high-concept sci-fi shenanigans of the world’s smartest psychopath and his idiot grandson. Initially meant as a parody of Back to the Future, Rick and Morty has become required viewing and a pop-culture sensation.
Misunderstood by much of its fan base, the show’s mix of smart writing and dumb humour has put it streets ahead of its competitors.
And now you can play it as a slot machine. Naturally, Rick and Morty appear on the reels along with parasite-mottled space rocks, Zigerion computer chips, and the portal gun that makes the show’s central conceit work.
It is a loving homage to a great show. Give it some play, my Glip-Glops.
The graphics do a good job of mimicking the style of the show, though is rather short on the kind of in-jokes that make themed slots fun for the fans.
The animations are a little over simple. Disappointing given the quality of the animation on the show.
The music is a kind of elevator jazz rendition of the show’s theme song and neither lands as a piece of music nor as a joke.
Rick and Morty Megaways is a six reel slot that uses the Megaways system by license. It also uses the cascade feature that is available for this system.
The Megaways system used by this slot is a licensed gameplay system created by Big Time Gaming that combines reels of randomised size with an any way wins system.
Every spin, the number of symbols on each reel is randomised between two and seven symbols. As a result, the number of win ways ranges from 64 (when there are two symbols on all six reels) up to 117,649 (for seven symbols on all six reels).
Reels two to five also have an extra row at the top which moves right to left during cascades. These reels have up to seven symbols including the symbols on the extra row.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus symbol.
Four or more Bonus symbols trigger the bonus feature. The player can then choose one of four bonus options. All the bonuses are free spin games. The number of spins is set by a randomiser wheel. The wheel has better numbers on it the more symbols the player hits.
The Mystery Free Spins bonus also uses the wheel to award one of the other three bonuses at random.
The three types of Free Spins a player can end up with are Pickle Rick Free Spins, Federation Free Spins, and Vindicator Free Spins.
Pickle Rick Free Spins start with a multiplier of x1. The multiplier increases by one after every winning cascade. A Scatter symbol is added to the reels. Three or more of these symbols add extra spins.
Vindicator Free Spins have special symbols added to the reels. These can be collected to generate additional prizes. Like Pickle Rick Free Spins, additional spins can be won by hitting three or more Scatter symbols during one Vindicator Free Spin.
Federation Free Spins have Clone symbols added to the reels. When these land, they turn their entire reel Wild. Additional spins can be won with three or more Scatters, as with the other spin options.
The return to player of this game is 97.16%, this is way over our yardstick for average of roughly 96%.

The thing that really clinches this slot a recommendation though is the high volatility and excellent RTP.
