MacGyver Overview

MacGyver slots is based on a classic US TV series that ran for seven years and even features original video footage to add to the excitement as you spin the reels. The main character of the series, MacGyver, is shown to possess a genius-level intellect. He is proficient in multiple languages, has superb engineering skills, excellent knowledge of applied physics, military training in bomb disposal techniques and a preference for non-lethal resolutions to conflicts. Thanks to his incredible practical expertise, MacGyver manages to get out of any situation using ingenuity and everyday materials.

The MacGyver slot machine is built on a unique set of reels arranged in a 3-4-4-4-3 formation. As you spin the reels, you can see MacGyver defusing a bomb using a paper clip, helping you form winning combination on some of the 50 paylines.

The actor who portrayed MacGyver, Richard Dean Anderson, appears in various guises on the reels as high value symbols, whereas the lower values are tools of the hero's trade. You’ll see a paper clip, a roll of duct tape, a watch, sunglasses, a penknife, a hand glider and a speed boat.

There’s also a MacGyver gold wild symbol which substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatters.

How To Play MacGyver

Like many games developed by Novomatic, this release gives you a wide range of betting options to pick from, with coins starting at just 0.01. It is set to be released in March 2019 and as soon as it goes live, we’ll update this review with more information about the bets and gameplay.

How To Win MacGyver Slots

The paytable of MacGyver slots is yet to be revealed, but from what we know so far, the main character is the most lucrative one and will pay up to 2500x the line bet if you land five stacked MacGyver symbols. Regular MacGyver portrait images pay 100-1000x your line bet.

As for the low-paying icons, the paper clip and the roll of duct tape both are worth 50-200x line bet if you land three, four or five on a payline. The roll of tape has often been MacGyver’s ‘weapon of choice’ and here it also has a special appearance – as a stacked symbol. The watch and penknife pay up to 400x for five-of-a-kind, whereas the hand glider and speed boat are worth 50-500x the bet per line.

MacGyver Bonus Features

Bomb Bonus

The blue scatter symbol appears on reels 2 and 3, whereas the bomb counter symbol only appears on reel 4. If you land the right scatters on reels 2 to 4, you will trigger the Bomb bonus feature in which 18 individual reels are used. Each reel spins up to 7 times and will lock in place if a real-cash credit, Defuse Minor, or Defuse Major symbol appears.

If you’re lucky enough to land a Defuse symbol, you will get the chance to select from five wires and win a progressive jackpot. You can win 50-10,000 credits, regardless of your bet size.

Diamond Bonus

Landing scatters on reels 2 and 3, plus a diamond scatter on reel 4 triggers the Diamond bonus. You will receive seven free spins on two special reel arrangements. Diamonds and gems are added to the reels which pay jackpots worth 200-500x your line bet.

Before each spin in the Diamond bonus feature, you’ll need to select one of four boxes to reveal one of the modifiers which include a locked wild reel, a progressive win multiplier, or a credit prize worth between 1x and 3x your bet. If you’re too indecisive, you can get the computer to pick a modifier at random.

MacGyver Bonus

Landing a stacked MacGyver symbol on reel 1 triggers this feature for which you can get 1-4 bonus spins with MacGyver, Wild and Blank symbols only on the reels.
