If you’ve ever felt like the paylines of most slots just aren’t quite enough for you, the games in this filter should be able to help you out. The Megaways™ mechanic is a random reel modifier that alters the amount of symbols shown on a reel on any given spin – giving you numbers of paylines that you most likely couldn’t even have imagined in your wildest dreams.
As seasoned players will be aware, most early land-based slots started out with three reels and often just one payline. Developments in technology led to more reels and win methods, starting with matching symbols in Microgaming’s 243 ways-to-win slots, increasing to 1024, and finally leading to the development of the Megaways™ feature, whose slots have varying numbers of win ways all the way up to hundreds of thousands. This first appeared in Big Time Gaming’s 2016 slot Dragon Born and became so popular that BGT decided to make it a regular aspect of their slots.
Many Megaways™ slots have six reels, and each symbol works as a scatter that pays on consecutive reels from left to right. Put simply, the number of symbols on reel one is multiplied by the number of the same symbols on reel two. This is then multiplied by the number of that symbol on the third reel, then the fourth, all the way to reel number six – hopefully creating some massive wins along the way. The slots often have a high volatility, but with exceptional production quality and jackpots in addition to the chance to play with an insane number of ways to win, many players consider it a risk worth taking.
Now a Big Time Gaming trademark, other providers have licensed the Megaways™ feature and added it to their own games. You can take a look at some of our favourites below:
If you’ve got a bit of a wild side, we recommend Relax Gaming’s Temple Tumble Megaways™, where you can let your inner explorer loose to fight snakes and tigers while gathering multipliers and extra spins over a maximum of 46,656 ways to win.
If jungles aren’t your thing, the epic fruit machine that is Red Tiger Gaming’s Mystery Reel Megaways™ may suit you better. With up to 117,649 ways to win, plus mystery symbols, extra spins, a gamble feature and the chance to win up to 10,000x your bet, we’d say it’s well worth a go.
Bonanza™ is one of Big Time Gaming’s most famous games. As this is the provider who started it all, it’s pretty much compulsory to check out their slots when trying out the Megaways™ feature, and this game is one of their best. While you’re busy digging gems out of the mine, collect extra spins, wilds, unlimited multipliers and more, all over 117,649 Megaways™. And since you’re playing Big Time Gaming, try White Rabbit too, where you can follow this famous bunny on a journey through expanding reels, extra spins, wilds, multipliers and a maximum of 248,832 Megaways™.
This is already revolutionising the format of online slots, and with the use of the feature only set to grow over time, we’re pretty sure you can expect to see this more and more in some of the industry’s best slots yet.
