MegaWays is a random reel modifier system which allows any given spin to produce a different number of symbols across the reels.

Players can basically experience a totally different game with each spin with different number of ways to win on each spin. For example, Bonanza slot can create up to 117,649 ways to win and these games typically have big bonus rounds with lots of free spins and multipliers to drive up the win potential.

BTG set standard pretty high with this innovation and it was a kind of revolution when the mechanics was firstly introduced. This will be the second time the MegaWays engine has been licensed this year after Blueprint signed up in April 2018. They released several games with MegaWays including the brilliant Genie Jackpots and Mine slots.

“The MegaWays concept is remarkable; it provides for and delivers exciting game play on a whole new level.”, Steve Murray from Storm Gaming stated.

“We shall be using MegaWays on new Storm concepts and licensed IP with a number of launches set for the coming months.”
