MegaWays is a game engine/mechanic created by Big Time Gaming. Due to it’s overwhelming popularity, Big Time Gaming have licensed the game engine to various other software providers including WMS, Blueprint Gaming, Relax Gaming and Red Tiger Gaming – there are more providers who will also be developing MegaWays slots in the near future – rumours are NetEnt and Quickspin will be using MegaWays in 2019.
For the uninitiated, MegaWays slots are played on 6 reel machines where the number of symbols on each reel changes with each spin. This means that the number of potential ways to win or MegaWays also changes with each spin. If all the reels reach their maximum height, then you could end up spinning on a machine that offers up to 586,971 different winning opportunities (Holy Diver MegaWays). MegaWays slots don’t just come with the shape-shifting reels. You can expect the usual array if extras you might find in standard slots including symbol drops wins, free spins, expanding multipliers and other goodies. MegaWays slots may have lots of ways to win but the potential payouts also match with wins of up to 50,000 times your stake on each spin/free spin if you’re luck is in. The good news is that MegaWays slots can be found in most online casinos (due to its success) and we only expect this section to grow substantially.
