With a better Free Spin feature, the MAX version definitely stands as a clear winner, thanks to its focus on higher value symbols. With 3 wild reels instead of two, players can now win bigger payouts by combining the higher wild reel count with the higher value symbols.
The slot experience and the interface is almost identical, the only noticeable change here is the red tinge in the background as opposed to green.
