As with all of our slot game reviews it’s important that we go through the different features in the game so that we really get to grips with it before we play.
Our review will delve into the theme of The Race Megaways and provide comprehensive information about the reels and paylines.
Theme – Quiz Show
We don’t have to go into too much detail around the theme of this game as we’ve discussed it just above this section, but the theme of this game really feels like a UK Quiz Show. There isn’t really a specific theme that we can pinpoint the game around with everything feeling pretty generic while playing, but we feel that it resonates and resembles a UK TV Quiz Show that we’ve seen over and over again through the years.
The Race Megaways features wilds on the bottom reel with these wild symbols replacing every symbol except scatters and while in the bonus terminator symbols. These Wild symbols are interesting as they also can offer Wild Duplication, where all symbols on the vertical reel it lands on are replaced by Wilds. In free spins each wild that is added to the reels during Wild Duplication gains a multiplier up to 5x.
The Race Megaways features 6 reels.
There are 117,649 paylines in The Race Megaways.

The Free Spins feature in The Race Megaways triggers when three or more Scatter symbols appear across the reels. The Scatter symbols in this game all feature the logo of the slot that simply says The Race across the front. Landing those scatter symbols doesn’t put you straight into the bonus but into the Heart Bonus round.
The Heart Bonus round starts you off with 3 respins, with every heart at the top of the screen signifying a life. You can get more lives by landing The Race symbols on the 4x5 reel that appears on the slot. If you hit one or more hearts on the reels, the number of respins that are left at that time reset back to 3.
If there are no respins remaining or the Heart Bonus full screens with 20 hearts awarded, the Heart Bonus finishes and takes us into the main Free Spins bonus.
The Free Spins bonus gives us unlimited free spins until the lives at the top of the reels all run out and get to 0. Win multipliers in the bonus starts at 1 and increases every time you hit a reaction on the reels. The bonus continues until your lives run out and that happens by Terminator symbols landing on Reel 6. Every terminator symbol that appears reduces the lives you have left by one until they’re all gone.
The Race Megaways online slot game doesn’t have a jackpot prize but has a Max Win of 24,070x available.

Play Experience & First Impressions
The initial play experience for The Race Megaways makes us instantly think back to classic Big Time Gaming slot Who Wants to be a Millionaire Megaways with the reels and graphics on the slot itself so similar to that game. That of course isn’t a bad thing though with Millionaire Megaways a classic slot that BTG have produced in previous years and they’ll be hoping that The Race Megaways turns into a classic too.
As said previously in the review our first impressions of the slot really make us feel like we’re watching one of those classic daytime Quiz shows on the telly that are watched and adored by millions up and down the UK. Bright lights, bright graphics and a pumping soundtrack all add to the game to really give you that energetic feeling and make you feel part of The Race.
