Twin Spin is back and it’s bigger (literally!) and better than ever before! Forget the sequel, the third slot in the series is by far the greatest of all, thanks to a stunning set of mechanics – Megaways and syncing! Styled very much like the original release, Twin Spin Megaways delivers old-Vegas style aesthetics with a retro feel, a theme that is still popular with the casino industry some 7-years after the original went live!
If you’ve ever played Twin Spin you’ll recognise how this updated version operates, the only difference being those 243 ways to win have been updated to as many as 117,649 ways to win per spin and the max win of 1,080x can reach up to 38,000x – a multiplier which is applied to your winnings and not your stake! It’s all about keeping it simple with nostalgic elements and a simple setup; golden bells, bars, cherries and the iconic red 7 are all designed to tickle the senses.
“Twin Spin is a signature title in our portfolio which continues to attract players years after release, so with the addition of the Megaways and Avalanche features, we expect this title will be one of our biggest releases of the year. The look and feel of the original have been replicated perfectly to match the excitement of the enhanced gameplay, making Twin Spin Megaways a headline game that will no doubt draw in the crowds for our operator partners,” said Andy Whitworth, Chief Commercial Officer at NetEnt.
Twin Spin Megaways Features and Stats
On the face of things, Twin Spin Megaways is very much a basic slot; you select your stake from 10p to a maximum of £100 a spin and watch as the reels spin. With a mechanic boasting up to 117,649 ways to win per spin, the chances are you’re likely to come across regular wins, however, due to the way in which the slot has been designed, the value of those wins will be small more often than not.
Before each spin commences, two touching reels – 1 and 2, 2 and 3, 3 and 4, 4 and 5 or 5 and 6 will become what’s known as synced reels, which means those two reels will produce an identical outcome. You’ll know which two are synced because of the red and gold glow surrounding them. Major thrills kick in when that syncing feature spreads like wildfire – will it be three identical reels; will it be four – or will it be all six? The syncing element alone is enough to keep players on the edge of their seat. Add to that audio which drives the senses wild and it’s the perfect combination for the perfect gaming experience.
Regardless of position – base game or free spins, when a win is achieved, those winning symbols will be evaluated and removed from the reels to make way for new symbols. If new wins are found, the process continues. Avalanche (or cascade) are designed to give potentially more than one win per spin, and that’s the reason why these Megaways slots are so popular. Wild symbols can spin in on any spin and help achieve wins where they may have been missed, but unlike most Megaways titles, this one has an added incentive; wilds can carry multipliers of either 2x or 4x – the more in view, thee bigger that multiplier will be!
What about free spins? Like most Megaways slots, at least four scatter icons are required, and again, like most, you will rarely spot one let alone five! That’s right; Twin Spin Megaways requires five scatters before producing free spins fun. When the slot machine is ready to give up its feature, you will be granted 15 free spins with that thrilling consecutive multiplier.
Many people are under the misconception that an increasing multiplier means 1x on spin one, 2x on spin two and 15x on spin fifteen, however, that multiplier increases with every consecutive win, not every spin! And another thing, the multiplier is applied to the winnings – not your stake! An example of how this operates is as follows; you spin once and three cascades take place – that’s’ three wins, so the third win will be boosted by 3x, this then carries on to spin four. During spin four, you hit three wins, that’s a multiplier of 7x on the last win and this then carries over to spin three. The multiplier will be carried over and will increase on each win – this could lead to colossal wins for any level of bet!

The highest paying symbol is that of the diamond – the same as the original release. The red seven offers half that of the diamond with the bar and bell following closely behind. The juicy cherries are the lowest paying of the iconic symbols, but not as low as the card values of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Whether you’re accessing the game on mobile, tablet or desktop, Twin Spin Megaways is designed to deliver a truly immersive experience with a stunning soundtrack. Soft, calming tones play out as those reels spin which quickly escalates when the syncing element kicks in. Like those elusive scatters, the wilds do like to remain hidden, but we should point out that when a wild appears (or more than one), it doesn’t necessarily mean you will receive a multiplier. Wild multipliers are offered as a feature and therefore, more often than not, the wilds will only be standard wilds and nothing else.
