If you’re a Slots enthusiast then there’s no doubt that you’ve heard of the Megaways feature. You may have seen this name displayed next to some of your favourite games whenever you play Slots online, and this essentially means that that game has been introduced to special mechanics to provide you with unique gameplay and some very special features.

But, what exactly are Megaways Slots? Read on to find out.

Where did Megaways come from?

Megaways was created by Australian software provider Big Time Gaming, in 2017. The special mechanics are designed to provide players with the chance to unlock up to 117,649 ways to win, so it’s no wonder Megaways took off and online casinos added these games to their catalogue!

How do Megaways Slots work?

In comparison to other Slots, Megaways reels use a different mathematical model and a random reel modifier. This modifier can change how many symbols appear on the reels during each spin, as well as how many paylines there are. On each spin, there could be between two to seven special symbols on each reel.

How to win a Megaways slot

Much like an average slot machine, the aim is to land winning combinations on the reels. When playing a Megaways slot, you’ll want to match three or more identical symbols from left to right on adjacent reels. The paylines aren’t always like they are on standard Slots, creating more possibilities to create winning combinations.

Special Features

Megaways Slots are filled to the brim with other special features and bonuses that could also amplify your gameplay.

These include:
  • Cascading reels
Cascading reels come into play when you land a winning combination. The winning symbols will disappear and new symbols will fall from above, filling the spaces in the hopes of creating even more wins.
  • Mystery symbols
Mystery symbols can be randomly activated during the base game, and are reel modifies that can trigger between three and 15 mystery symbols to appear on the reels at the same time, before turning into the same symbol. These can sometimes appear stacked, covering an entire reel on a single spin!
  • Free spins and unlimited multipliers
Perhaps, one of the most exciting aspects of Megaways gameplay is the fact you can trigger free spins rounds at any time, and these come with unlimited win multipliers! This means that, if the multiplier starts at 1x, it will increase by another 1x for every winning combination you land during the round.

Megaways spin-offs

Due to the ever-growing popularity of the Megaways mechanics, Big Time Gaming have created not one, but two spin-offs, featuring different mechanics such as Megaclusters, which rewards you using a Cluster Pays mechanism, and Megaquads, in which you’ll essentially be able to enjoy four slot games at the same time!


So now you have a better understanding of what exactly a Megaways slot entails, will you be spinning these unique reels, trying out the differences with Megaquads, or sticking to the classics?
