For the latest iSoftBet slot, we embark on a virtual trip to the Gambling Capital of the World. No, not good old Las Vegas. That title has long been snatched by Macau, an autonomous orient region comprised of a mainland peninsula connected to two islands (Taipa & Coloane) and a recently reclaimed section in between the two islands, Cotai. Wondering the story behind that? Well, here’s the simplest answer: Unlike Vegas, Macau is less of a social avenue and more of a place where people go with the primary goal of striking land casino riches. So, leaving the carefree attitude of Vegas world’s away back in the state of Nevada, let’s launch iSoftBet’s creation to head down to this wondrous destination.

Overview, Math Model, Basic Rules, & Paytable
Macau utilizes a simplistic 5X3 layout, just like a typical iSoftBet slot. Players get ten paylines to land winners on with an analogous default bet of ten coins that’s only alterable with the coin value selector on the bottom right side of the UI. The only thing to note here is that the higher the coin value you choose, the better the rewards. If you win 15000 coins, for instance, and your selected coin value is 0.01 and 1 on another occasion, then your win in cash will be €150 (15000X0.01) and €15000 respectively.
Like a slot cabinet on one of Macau’s wagering paradises, Macau High Roller bears a highly volatile math model capable of taking it all or the opposite, giving it all. That’s not made explicitly clear by the developer, but it wasn’t hard to make that deduction after extended sessions of low-win spins that would culminate into flurries of big wins. Other key stats include an RTP that misses the above-average mark with just 0.12%, which is not worth kicking up a fuss about.
Landing a winner isn’t that complicated. You only need to line up at least 3 identical symbols on an active payline, except for the supermodel that only requires two. Perhaps to make up for the ten-payline drawback, the values are impressive, with the premiums paying rewards ranging from twenty to two thousand coins at their best.
Cash in the Chips!
iSoftBet introduces the Cash Link mechanism to bring in a concept that will be recognizable from competitor slots for most of us. Basically screens, where normal symbols are replaced by instantly cashable chips, the most valuable being one thousand coins.
Random Macau Spin
The mention feature is the first of features linked to the Cash Link mechanism. It can be activated on any random spin, cashing all the chips that land in view. The best this feature would do on average during our test runs was 250 coins.
Scatters are represented by briefcases. Land three, four of five of these on the grid to unlock seven, ten, and fifteen rounds on the house, where only the cash chips are in play. Same as in the above feature, any chips collected will be cashed instantly. The total coins we cobbled up here were always in the range of 500 coins.
High Roller Bets
For those looking to win big by giving it all, there is the high-roller-bet button at the side of the grid to turn to at 200 times the selected coin value for every spin. This mode plays just like the last two features, only that the spots where the chips land are marked red.
Mark out all 15 spots unlocks the 3X super re-spins. Once active, the reels spin with the chips in view turning sticky while also resetting the re-spins count to three. This makes it even easier to land big wins, with the best-case scenario being having chips valued at one thousand coins occupying the entire grid at the same time, which will award fifteen thousand coins (1000X15 spots).
Macau High Roller — Our Verdict
All up, Macau High Roller is a good creation from iSoftBet that ticks all the right boxes. It might not have what it takes to become a hit, but it sure offers enough thrills to all types of players. While the high rollers risk it all with the high roller spins to chase the technically possible wins of up to €15000, the rest of the game will offer the casual players ample thrills to chase.
