The world of Megaways Slots!
It’s always exciting when your favourite game gets a Megaways upgrade. Unlike other slots, Megaways slots offer cascading reels rather than your traditional 5-reel with a fixed number of paylines.
Our favourite thing about Megaways is the huge number of ways to win. Some of our most popular Megaways titles offer 117,649 ways to win! A lot of our titles also give you the chance to win big jackpots. The combination of an ever-changing layout with the chance to win huge jackpots, talk about a thrill!
What are Megaways slots?
Megaways is a term that was first coined by Big Time Gaming, although BGT now allows other software developers to use its innovative concept under a licence.
Megaways games come with significantly more paylines than typical video slots which, in theory, means that there are more chances to create winning combinations.
Due to the popularity of the Megaways pay system, many leading games manufacturers have decided to pop a Megaways engine under the bonnet of some of their most popular slots.
How Do You Play Megaways Slots?
Let’s make you a Megaways master in a few minutes!
- Megaways games usually come with 5+ reels but that’s where the similarities with your typical vanilla online slots end.
- The party piece is there are tons of ways to win thanks to having a different number of symbols per reel, instead of a fixed amount.
So, when you’re putting your spin on the reels, you’ll never know how many matching symbols you could land on each spin. This means that your regular slots have ten or even a few hundred ways to win, Megaways has thousands and sometimes surpass those 117,649-win ways!
Megaways games also come with some common features. A lot of them have Cascading Symbols for example. It’s where any symbols in a winning combo will be removed to make room for more symbols to drop from the top, meaning you can chain combos together just from a single spin!
