Megaways slots explained by Casumo Casino
Posted by Casumo Casino 3 years ago (04.12.2020)
The Megaways engine from Big Time Gaming has been taking the online casino world by storm since 2016. And surely you’ve come across some Megaways slots already! Because by now, many of these slots are topping the charts and dominate most game browsers. However, if you still find yourself wondering what Megaways slots are exactly, this blog article is just what you need! Here we’ll explain what Megaways is, how Megaways works, and which Megaways slots are worth giving a try.
What are Megaway's slots?
Megaways is a random reel modifier created by Big Time Gaming. The engine changes the number of symbols appearing on each reel during a single spin. In short, this means that with every spin a different number of symbols lands on each reel. Potentially, this could offer tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of ways to win. With Megaways slots you have to land identical symbols, from left to right, on adjacent reels to create a winning line. You won’t have to line up symbols along with specific pay lines.
How does Megaways work?
So why did this type of casino game become so popular? Even though Megaways slots might sound a bit complicated, in reality, it’s actually pretty straightforward. The number of symbols that appear is selected by the Megaways engine entirely at random. In standard Megaways slots, there are six reels and up to seven symbols that could appear on each reel.
This could potentially create thousands of different ways to win with each spin, 117,649 to be exact. It happens when all six reels are displaying the maximum number of seven symbols per reel. This works out to 7x7x7x7x7x7 = 117,649 –
though not all Megaways slots offer up to 117,649 ways-to-win! For example, in White Rabbit there are even up to 248,832 Megaways to win! In Holy Diver there are 586,971 (!) ways-to-win, if you manage to unlock the Bonus Game, that is.
When playing a Megaways slot, you’ll notice that the slot displays the potential ways to win on each spin. These numbers are usually shown in a box at the top. This is pretty helpful if you’re not that big on math!
Some of the best Megaways slots available at Casumo
Megaways has become so popular that Big Time Gaming took the decision to license the mechanic to other game providers. This allowed them to create their very own titles based around Megaways.
Bonanza, Extra Chilli, Temple Tumble, and Diamond Mine are some of the older titles that our players love to play. But we thought it would be nice to list some of the more recently released Megaways slots available at Casumo. Have a look!
Take a journey back to ancient Rome in the Centurion Megaways slot! Created by Inspired Gaming, this 6-reel slot comes with Cascading Reels and offers up to 117,649 ways-to-win. On any spin, the Centurion could summon up one of 5 random modifiers. Landing 3 or more Scatters on the same spin will award you a spin of the Bonus Wheel. Here you could land pick-me features, Free Spins with expanding multipliers or Wild Spins where up to 4 reels could turn wild. Potentially this could give you even more multipliers.
