Megaways slots – what’s all the fuss about? If you’re asking that question, you’ve clearly never played or played one that has been kind to you (and your bankroll!). Despite delivering an almost identical reel setup, each title is different; different creators, different features and different themes.
From the tasty to the downright crazy, 6-reels and up to 117,649 ways to win can provide hours of entertainment, but which ones pay most often? How long is a piece of string? Both are impossible to answer and when it comes to slots, thanks to a superb piece of technology called an RNG (random number generator), all outcomes remain random and you know what that means - fair play at all times.
Big Time Gaming (BTG) may have invented the revolutionary Megaways concept, but many software providers have made it what it is today – remarkable! It all started with Bonanza; with its goldmining theme and increasing multipliers. From there, rival brands acquired the license to develop their own masterpieces and this has led to an increase in the number on the market.
Iconic Meets Modern
Rainbow Riches is one of the most loved casino games of all time. Developed by Barcrest back in 2009, the jolly green leprechaun has found himself at the centre of many different games; Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours, Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n’ Mix and Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold. Fast forward a decade and now he finds himself the star of Rainbow Riches Megaways!
Dropping the nostalgic wishing wells and pots of gold in favour of dazzling gemstones and card values, sees players benefiting from a cascading reel engine and equally as exciting bonus spins round.
Property Trading at Its Finest
Monopoly Megaways was developed by BTG in 2020 – it’s basically an online slot version of the popular property trading board game. As you spin, Mr Monopoly will travel around his virtual board snapping up property and gathering his portfolio, until he has enough houses and hotels to award the bonus round.
Utilities, chance, community chest, tokens in the form of the dog and race car plus go to jail and pass go are all sewn into the reels. Like most titles in the franchise, this one offers an unlimited multiplier which increases up to 10,000x during free games and this sum is applied to your winnings, not your bet!
It’s So Hot!
My personal favourite is Dragon Fire Megaways, the high volatility slot game with a random dragon bursting wilds or bonus spins symbols onto the reels. Instead of a cascading reel engine, each win will increase the multiplier meter, so five consecutive wins will award a 5x multiplier; ten would award a 10x multiplier.
Break the link in the consecutive wins chain and the multiplier meter resets to zero. Bonus spins provide cascading reels and mega multipliers, although landing the feature is easier said than done. The reason I love this game so much is because my 60p stake landed me a win of over £2200 during the free games feature!
Raging Rhino Megaways, Vikings Unleashed Megaways, Genie Jackpots Megaways, Return of Kong Megaways, Beetlejuice Megaways and many, many more (with other offers!) can be played at Pots of Luck – will you be the next big winner?
