Big Time Gaming’s latest slot title Star Clusters has made an impressive impact since its launch last week after entering the top five on the UK charts which included 150 slot launches in June 2020.
Debuting the developers new ‘ground-breaking’ Megaclusters game engine, Star Clusters launched on June 24, initially exclusive with Scientific Games Digital before going live the same day with Flutter Entertainment’s group of brands including Paddy Power, Betfair, PokerStars, and SkyVegas.
Posting on LinkedIn, CEO of Big Time Gaming, Nik Robinson, said: “Star Clusters has just earned its spurs, entering the top 5 on the UK charts against 150 plus slot launches in June 2020.
“Still, early days but the brand new Megaclusters format has most certainly kicked off with a big bang!”
Star Clusters, which claimed our Slot of the Week, is a cluster pays format slot with a nostalgic Bejeweled vibe. The 4×4 grid with 16 tiles can break into a maximum of 64 tiles during the Megaclusters mode.
With the Megaclusters mechanic, each symbol that forms part of a winning combo will split into four smaller symbols to create even more Megaclusters. Additionally, when combos appear within these smaller symbols, they explode and new tiles fall into place until the combo dries up.
Speaking on the launch of the title, Dylan Slaney, SVP Gaming Digital at Scientific Games, stated: “This is an exciting new development that once again brings breakthrough player experiences from our OpenGamingTM ecosystem.
“What I love about BTG’s games is their ability to redesign a classic by using rich layers of technology to create something diverting and unexpected. That’s really evident in Star Clusters and it’s a thrill to bring the global launch of this new Megaclusters mechanic as an exclusive first on OGS.”
Robinson echoed Slaney’s comments stating the mechanic to be a ‘game changer’. He said: “We believe that Megacluster is quite literally a game changer in the online casino space and we’re delighted that it’s received a great reception from reviewers. Expect to see this mechanic feature in more BTG games in the future.”
