Big Time Gaming claims our SOTW award with Gold Megaways

Gold Megaways is a 6x2 to 6x7 slot with up to one million ways to win, including features such as a Win Exchange mechanic and free spins.

Big Time Gaming has taken its Megaways story to the next level as it claims this week’s Slot of the Week award with its revamped classic slot, Gold Megaways.

The slot has reels from 6×2 to 6×7 with up to one million ways to win, and includes features such as a Win Exchange mechanic and free spins.

“Gold was Big Time Gaming’s first ever game. We set out then to change the industry with a new breed of slot mechanics and it’s fitting that Gold is crowned with Megaways for its 10th Anniversary edition,” commented BTG CEO, Nik Robinson.

“As a business we thrive on innovation, and we can’t wait to reveal what we’re working on with Evolution. The upcoming decade will see a jurassic shift in online entertainment.”

Launched on August 18 at Flutter Entertainment, Entain, Leo Vegas Group, Unibet and Betsson Group, the game has variable ways to win – maxing out at 117,649 – depending on how many symbols land on each reel.

The top paying symbols award between x2 and x100 the stake for six-of-a-kind wins. Furthermore, cascades can occur on every win to help players build up wins over time.

During the base game, whenever the player lands a win in with a wild, a x3 multiplier will be applied to the win.

Moreover, landing three or more scatters will trigger the free spins round where players spin a prize wheel to determine how many free spins they’ll receive. However, if more than three scatters are landed, each additional scatter will add four spins to the total.

During the expanding reels bonus, players will find the expansion symbol feature. Whenever this symbol appears, it is replaced by two symbols, increasing the number of symbols on each reel.

Should the player expand a reel to the maximum of 10 symbols, they will be awarded with eight more free spins. Additionally, all wilds on that reel turn into wild multipliers

Finally, if the player lands a win of x70 or more, they can exchange that win for 12 free spins. If the player lands a win between x20 and x70, they’ll be given the chance to play the gamble wheel for the 12 spins.

“We’re thrilled to be the debut platform for Gold Megaways because we know that this is a really big release,” added SG Digital content specialist director, Rob Procter.

“The original Megaways was so influential, and this is its next phase. BTG are always pushing the boundaries, always innovating and it’s fun to imagine just what they will do next.”    

The title comes with an RTP of 96.42 per cent with a high volatility level implemented within the gameplay. Readers who would like to read more about Big Time Gaming’s Gold Megaways can click here to be redirected to the supplier’s official website.
