All about Megaways slots

As slot players know, when it comes to gameplay, nothing beats Megaways slots! Not only do they offer great value for money, with high payout rates, but also, and most importantly, they offer unlimited paylines and payouts.

Megaways slots

But the real reason Nik Robinson invented the Megaways feature was to offer a new gaming experience. And Big Time Gaming has succeeded in doing just that, taking the entire industry with it. Today, regardless of the developer, Megaways slots are more popular and award-winning than ever, and here's why.

Big Time Gaming, the originator of the new era of slot machines

Three experienced iGaming businessmen helped found the Sydney-based Australian company, Big Time Gaming (BTG). In 2011, Huw Mcintosh, Ian Schmidt and Nik Robinson, the CEO, put all their skills to work in online innovation. Formerly at the helm of OpenBet (better known as NT Media), Nik wanted to completely change the way slot machines worked, which he felt was too boring, and he did it right!

His two main inventions are Grid slots and the MegawaysTM process discussed here. In fact, the advent of these 117,649-payline slots corresponds to the 2015 release of the magical Dragon Born. A bit dated now, it is rather the popular Bonanza that marks the great beginning of the "Megaways" type slots that online casino players have the most fun to find on their favorite casino games platform!

What does Megaways have that other systems don't?

Sure, a good slot game is simple and effective, with just a lever or a button to push to launch the reels and their winning combinations. But it's even better if the money is falling all over the place, with symbols cascading down just by throwing a single spin. Even though this is a new technological tool, all the bonuses we love are represented. One could even go so far as to say that it's a festival of Respins, Free Spins, Bonus Games, Scatters and Stacked Wilds that combine with 2 to 7 symbols spread endlessly over 6 reels and 7 rows or more!

The magic of Megaways is the explosion of bonuses on endless paylines. It goes on and on as you don't have just 10, 25 or 40 lines connected, but hundreds of thousands. This is a change from the traditional "5 reels in 3 rows" slot machines. In comparison, it's like riding a scooter into space before the Megaways arrived!

Winnings like it's raining with the Megaways feature!

For the mathematically inclined, this new configuration is sure to please. For the rest of us, we'll have to dilate our eyes to see how the symbols are connected, but it's all as much fun as it is overwhelming!

The calculation is simple: the more symbols there are on a reel, the more Megaways there are, because you just have to multiply them to get up to 586,971 lines in the case of the Holy Diver game. And we're sure the record is still to be broken!

Basically, you have to get the same kind of symbols on the first 3 reels. If you don't, you won't be able to win anything. Once you've cleared this first hurdle, there's no reason why you can't get one or more Big Win. And the multipliers are legion, from 50x to 100x to x70, but once again, we often exceed these limits! Such offers are the best online casino bonuses.

Who wants to win millions with Megaways?

First of all, this system, as innovative as the first 5-reel slots in their time, has made many envious in the sphere of casino games professionals. This is quite normal when you think that sometimes it takes less than that to make the whole world dream. Here we have the Rolls-Royce of powerful mechanics with slot machines that calculate thousands of combinations at high speed.

On the one hand, there are the competing developers who use Big Time Gaming as a muse for emulation, such as Yggdrasil Gaming and its Splitz. And on the other hand, we find the big names that have signed an agreement with the giant BTG, which, let's not forget, has just been absorbed by the ogre Evolution Gaming in a monumental 450 million euro buyout.

Megaways slots

In bulk, we can mention iSoftbet, Red Tiger Gaming (another purchase of Evolution Gaming), Pragmatic Play, or Blueprint Gaming which were able to obtain a sacrosanct license to distribute their flagship slots on the market. For example, Red Tiger's Gonzo's Quest Megaways and iSofbet's Aztec Gold Megaways, which hold the promise of El Dorado in the air, are among the gems inspired by BTG's technological prowess.

Ever since the Megaways were introduced, it's true that they've become a must-have at online casinos. Big Time Gaming has a lot to do with this, and its growing reputation is a fair reflection of the flourishing iGaming industry.
