An old NetEnt favourite is given a makeover in Dazzle Me Megaways released in May 2021. It’s all glitz and glamour in this 6-reel slot with 2 to 9 symbols landing on each reel. The Megaways mechanic has 99,225 ways to pay together with cascading tiles (avalanches).

NetEnt has a great catalogue of games and this recipe of injecting the Megaways mechanic to old favourites is becoming more and more recurrent. There’s nothing wrong with that of course and fans of the originals will enjoy the added excitement.

They also managed to keep the slot looking like the old classic. Its clean, sharp design will help it withstand the test of time and it will remain a hit with classic slot-lovers.


Higher-paying symbols take the shape of vintage slot symbols, whilst low-paying symbols take the shape of colourful gems. Whenever a win is registered the reels will explode in a waterfall of jewels and new ones are replaced, possibly creating more wins.

The symbols, from highest to the lowest consist of:

  • The scatter tile can appear anywhere on the reels, even during avalanches. With 4 scatters the free spins round is triggered awarding 8 free spins.
  • The Wild tile is a glitzy diamond and can substitute for all symbols bar the scatter.
  • The 7 symbol yields 6x with 6 adjacent tiles.
  • The golden bell yields 1.2x with 6 adjacent tiles.
  • The red heart yields 1.1x with 6 adjacent tiles.
  • The green clover yields 1x with 6 adjacent tiles.
  • The orange gem yields 0.9x with 6 adjacent tiles.
  • The dark pink gem yields 0.7x with 6 adjacent tiles.
  • The green and purple gems yield 0.6x with 6 adjacent tiles.
  • The light pink and aquamarine gems yield 0.5x with 6 adjacent tiles.


  • Dazzling Wild Reels

During the base game, the Dazzling Wild Reels can randomly appear on reels 2 to 6. Up to 3 reels can be filled with these Wild Reels that will appear only at the start of a spin. The number of wilds appearing on the reels is determined by the size of the column.

  • Free Spins Round

Land 4 or more scatters during the base game and you will enter the free spins round. Four scatters will yield 8 free spins and any additional scatter tile will give the player an extra 4 free spins. During the free spins round the Dazzling Wild Reels are activated with every spin.

The reels during the Dazzling Wilds in the free spins rounds will all start at 2 tiles. When a win is registered using one of the Dazzling Wilds the tiles in that reel will go up by 1. These will continue increasing throughout the free spins round.


This is a classic-looking slot but the Megaways mechanic injects some of the much-needed excitement into the gameplay and drags it into the present. When the Dazzling Wild reels make an appearance and the Avalanche keeps on refreshing with new winning symbols you will feel those BPMs rising.

However, after this happens a few times gameplay will get slightly tedious. Especially when the bonus round is nowhere to be seen. At one point I was 600 spins in and there was no sight of the bonus round. When the bonus did come round I only registered a 40x win which was incredibly disappointing considering the time and effort I spent to get there.

The volatility is set to high and the RTP of the game is set to 96.1% but always keep a lookout for this number as some casinos may adjust this slightly. There is no doubt that fans of the old Dazzle Me will definitely gobble this slot up but the lack of features and the fact that it’s so hard to get into the bonus round left me feeling quite cold about the slot. Simply put, dazzle me, it did not.
