  • Play Royal Mint at Slotsino
    Deposit £10+, Get Up To 50 Bonus Spins

    Royal Mint is a Megaways slot by the inventors of the whole Megaways genre, Big Time Gaming.  It has the often seen cascading wins mechanic and not one, but TWO extra horizontal reels (the only reels on which wilds can appear) taking the maximum number of Megaways to 117, 649.

    The signature BTG bonus round of 12 free spins with an increasing multiplier is triggered by a very elusive 4 bonus symbols, but eventually it gets easier – every time you get a near miss by spinning up 3 bonus symbols you’ll collect a gold bar (these are stored in the vaults each sode of the reels.  At 40 gold bars, not only is an extra bonus symbol added per spin until the next bonus round trigger, but the bonus round itself is upgraded to the Heartstopper version with an increasing multiplier that starts at 2 and goes up by 2 with every reaction.

    Royal Mint has RTP of 96.48% (no prizes for guessing how much of that is in the bonus round) and can be played from 20p a spin.

  • Play Buffalo Rising Megaways at bgo
    Win Up To 500 Spins (Twin Spin) On Your First Deposit (UK only)

    Buffalo Rising is the latest slot to get the Megaways treatment. Big-Time Gaming’s innovative mechanic is proving pretty popular with players, thanks to the random-reel modifier. The game comprises a set of six reels, above which is another set of four.

    They’re set against a well-rendered canyon backdrop and are decorated with the standard assortment of playing card symbols. These are joined by depictions of prairie animals including a wolf, bear and of course a buffalo. Highlights include the cascading reels feature in which falling symbols replace winning combos to form new ones. High value symbols include the Prairie Sunset that reveals matching symbols and the Pink Diamond scatter.

    Landing four of these triggers the potentially lucrative free spins round. When activated, you’ll be awarded 15 free games that feature an ever-increasing multiplier. During the free spins round, it’s possible to collect extra spins by landing additional pink diamond symbols. Also look out for the Feature Select at the beginning of each bonus round. You’ll be able to choose 15 free spins with a 1x multipler, 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier or 5 free spins with a 10x multiplier.

    Like all Megaways slots, Buffalo Rising can be played for just 20p. It has an RTP of 96.43%.

  • Play Piggy Riches Megaways at Buzz Bingo
    Kingdoms Rise Slots: Deposit & Play £20, Get 110 Wager Free Spins

    Piggy Riches Megaways by Red Tiger sees yet another evergreen slot game given a Megaways makeover – in this case, Net Ent’s 10 year old high variance thriller.  This is possible because Net Ent now own Red Tiger.  Piggy Riches Megaways is one of Red Tiger’s Daily Jackpot games and there are various configurations of jackpot depending on which site you choose to play it at.  It seems to be pretty popular, if the rate at which the daily jackpots ticked up on the day of its release are anything to go by.

    Like many other Megaways games, Piggy Riches Megaways has a cascading wins game mechanic and a classic Megaways bonus round with an increasing multiplier.  What makes the bonus round even higher variance than usual is the spin the wheel feature at the start, which can award from 7 to 22 free spins with a starting multiplier of 1x to 10x.

    Piggy Riches Megaways has RTP of 95.7% and can be played from 10p a spin.

  • Play Sweet Success Megaways at 7Casino
    Win Up To 500 Free Spins On Your 1st Deposit (UK Only) - Twin Spin

    Sweet Success Megaways is yet another Megaways game by Blueprint, that is essentially Deal Or No Deal Megaways without the branding..  It has the horizontal conveyor covering reels 2-5 and cascading wins mechanic that is common to a great many Megaways slots.

    The Pick’n’Mix bonus has three levels and is triggered after 4, 5 or 6 consecutive cascades.  It is a pick-me which can award cash prizes or free spins.  The free spins take place with added mystery symbols and with a multiplier that increases with each win (again, these are familiar features that appear in other Megaways slots).  What makes Sweet Success Megaways different to most other Megaways slots is the nature of the pick-me itself – it’s a Deal Or No Deal style bonus game where you either collect what’s inside your own sweet ONLY at the end of the round, or accept a cash offer after a round of picks (which sometimes comes with 5 free spins).  To be sure of winning free spins and not a (usually disappointing) cash prize you’ll need 6 cascades to get the version of Pick’n’Mix where all possible awards are free spins.  No prizes for guessing how rare that is!

    Sweet Success Megaways has RTP of 96.06% and can be played from 10p a spin.

  • Play 88 Fortunes Megaways at CasinoCasino
    Deposit £10 - £100, Get 100% Slot Bonus

    88 Fortunes Megaways by Scientific Games is a Megaways reboot of the original slot game from 2016, itself based on a physical slot machine.  It has up to 117,649 ways to win depending on how many symbols land on each of the 6 reels, and the extra horizontal reel adjacent to reels 2-5 and exploding wins feature that are common to a great many Megaways slots.

    The special feature of 88 Fortunes Megaways is the option to play with anything from 1 to 5 gold symbols; turning a symbol gold makes wins worth 20x more or thereabouts, but changes the base stake; the cheapest spin is 8p with one gold symbol and 88p with all 5.  RTP varies from 96.06% to 96.36%.

    88 Fortunes Megaways also has a free spins bonus round which can be triggered either by scatters or via a pick-me feature (randomly awarded by the Fu Bat wild symbol) which also awards a starting multiplier.

  • Play Rainbow Riches Megaways at Cash Arcade
    Deposit £10+ To Open Your Loot Chest - Top Prize 500 Slot Spins

    Rainbow Riches Megaways sees the Megaways treatment given to arguably the most popular slot of all time (as far as UK players players are concerned, anyway).  The base game is very similar to other Megaways gems such as Bonanza – it has the familar horizontal reel at the top and cascading wins. The Super Gem symbol, which transforms all gems on the reels into the same gem, is also nothing new.  The bonus round is also typical of Megaways slots rather than of other Rainbow Riches games – it is free spins with an increasing multiplier.

    Where it gets interesting is in theways in which the bonus round can be triggered apart from by the usual 4 bonus symbols.  The Buy Pass triggers it instantly for 100x stake and if bought, the bonus round can be gambled using the Take A Chance feature, which awards a better bonus round or nothing.  Players can also save up for the bonus round by using the Bank feature which allows some or all winnings to be held to reduce the price of the Buy Pass (if you leave the game without buying it the winnings return to your wallet)

    Rainbow Riches Megaways has RTP of 96% and this goes up to 96.661% – 96.863% if the Buy Pass is used.  The “Take A Chance” gamble does not have a house edge.  The game can be played from 20p a spin.

  • Play Diamond Mine: Extra Gold Megaways at Slotsino
    Deposit £10+, Get Up To 50 Bonus Spins

    Diamond Mine: Extra Gold is the latest slot from Blueprint to make use of the ground-breaking Megaways engine – a random reel modifier that creates far more wins than standard games. Visually, Extra Gold bears more than a passing resemblance to its predecessor with the same desert backdrop and rendering of a rickety scaffolding frame.

    The cascading reels mechanic replaces winning combinations with new symbols, thus generating some tidy returns if you’ve got a good reel set-up. Like the original, Extra Gold includes a free spin feature that’s triggered when you land at least four scatters.

    Unlike the first game though, you can gamble your existing free spins for the chance to win thirty more by way of the gambling pie wheel. Blueprint has also included the mystery symbol enhancer which is signified by a TNT barrel. Appearing in both the base game and free spins feature, it can transform into any cash-paying symbol.

    Diamond Mine: Extra Gold Megaways can be played for 20p and has an RTP of 96.43%.

    * New Customers Only. 1st Deposit only. Min Deposit £10. Max 50 bonus spins on selected slots only. 2x conversion. 20x wagering.

  • Play Kingmaker Megaways at Slotnite
    Deposit £10+, Get 100% Slot Bonus Up To £250 + 100 Bonus Spins

    Kingmaker Megaways, the latest release from Big Time Gaming, adds an entirely new twist to the Megaways mechanic which turns the idea of skipping straight to the bonus round on its head.  In this game, the longer you wait for the bonus round the better it gets, and the better the base game gets!

    Kingmaker Megaways doesn’t have the cascading wins or horizontal reel features found in other Megaways slots such as Bonanza, and it only has 5 reels with 2 – 7 symbols on each, giving a maximum of 16,807 Megaways (all of which are active in every spin during the bonus round).  The main aim in the base game is to score 5 of a kind wins on the four high paying gem symbols; when you do, the Gem Multiplier for that gem is increased by one, applying to all future wins on that gem until the bonus round is triggered.  The bonus round starting multiplier is determined by adding the current Gem Mulitpliers together so is always at least 4, but can be much more. Although the multiplier can increase during the bonus round, it only does so on a 5 of a kind gem win, so the starting multiplier is much more important than in other Megaways slots.

    All in all, a very interesting innovation!  Kingmaker Megaways can be played from 20p a spin and has RTP of 96.65%.

  • Play Return of Kong Megaways at Foxy Games
    Deposit & Play £10 on Slingo, Get £10 Slingo Bonus

    Return of Kong Megaways by Blueprint Gaming has the classic Megaways features of cascading wins and a horizontal belt above reels 2-5 of its 6 reel array.  What makes it more than just another Megaways slot is firstly its reuse of the much loved video game inspired lead character from King Kong Cash and secondly the choice of ways to progress directly to the bonus round if you don’t want to wait  – if the operator has enabled the Bonus Bet button (not all of them have).

    100x stake buys the regular bonus round of 12 free spins with an increasing multiplier.  Collecting Golden Monkeys during the bonus round awards extra spins and upgrades the minimum number of Megaways per spin.

    150x stake buys a spin of the mystery bonus wheel which offers the opportunity to short circuit the process of collecting Golden Monkeys.  It awards a random number of free spins with a random Golden Monkey upgrade level (so starting with a higher minimum number of Megaways).

    Return of Kong Megaways can be played from 10p a spin and has RTP of 96.13%

  • Play Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways at Gala Spins
    Jackpot King Slots: Deposit & Play £10+, Get £40 Bonus

    Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways is a pumped up revamp of the classic Blueprint slot from 2014.  The original had just 10 paylines but in the Megaways version, the 6 reels give up to 15,625 ways to win (depending, as always with Megaways, on the number of symbols that land on each reel which varies from spin to spin).  It’s one of the more straightforward Megaways slots out there, without the horizontal reel and exploding symbols of the quintessential Megaways game Bonanza.

    Just as in the original, the fisherman scatter is the key symbol, both for triggering the free spins bonus round and getting big wins once in there; the fish symbols come with price tags representing what you can win in the bonus round if you spin them at the same time as a fisherman.  The game does a great job of combining the look and feel of the original with the thrill of the Megaways mechanic, and in common with many other Megaways slots it has a Buy The Bonus feature whereby a player can pay 100x stake to trigger the bonus round immediately.

    Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways has RTP of 95.02%

    * 18+. New customers only. Certain countries only. Min deposit and spend £10 cash on any Jackpot King game = £40 bonus. x20 wagering reqs apply. Bonus valid for 7 days. Selected games only. T&Cs apply.

  • Play Medusa Megaways at Red Spins
    Deposit £10+, Get 100% Slots Bonus up to £200

    Medusa Megaways is a Megaways reboot of the classic NextGen slot games Medusa and Medusa II.  It has the same reels arrangement (and cascading wins) as Bonanza and Extra Chilli – 6 Megaways reels and a horizontal reel at the top of reels 2-5.  Excitement is provided in the base game by the Medusa’s Gaze feature which can activate when a Medusa Wild appears on the horizontal reel; the wild spreads downward to cover the reel below.

    Medusa Megaways has a free spins bonus round with a multiplier that increases with every win cascade and an additional feature, Snake Strike, which can create extra wilds (to trigger Medusa’s Gaze) and/or extra scatters (which add 5 more free spins each) on the extra reel.

    At the end of the bonus round, the unique Temptation feature kicks in.  Didn’t like the result of the bonus round?  You can throw it away and play it again – but choose wisely because Temptation is only offered once and you’ll be stuck with the result.

    Medusa Megaways can be played from 25p a spin and has RTP of 96.28% – which is increased to 97.63% if you use the “buy the bonus round” feature (for 100x stake).

  • Play Valletta Megaways at Gala Spins
    Jackpot King Slots: Deposit & Play £10+, Get £40 Bonus

    Valletta Megaways is another in the series of Megaways games by Blueprint.  It has 6 reels each of which displays up to 5 symbols giving up to 15625 ways to win.  The city of Valletta is the capital of Malta which is a major base for the iGaming industry but the theming harks back to the island’s epic past.

    Valletta Megaways is a Buy The Bonus Round slot.  The Valletta Bet can be bought for 100x stake.  This awards a spin that is guaranteed to produce at least 3 scatters for 10 free spins (but may produce more scatters for higher numbers of free spins).  During the bonus round, the Valletta Streak feature is active.  This is basically sticky wins – on any winning spin, the winning symbols stay in place for a respin and respins continue until no new winning symbols appear.  If all the symbols on the reels become sticky, more free spins are awarded.

    The Valletta Streak feature can also be randomly triggered during the base game and other features randomly add extra scatters of wild to the reels to keep things interesting.

    Valletta Megaways has RTP of 96.45% – or 97% if you do nothing but buy the bonus round (as we suspect many will).

    * 18+. New customers only. Certain countries only. Min deposit and spend £10 cash on any Jackpot King game = £40 bonus. x20 wagering reqs apply. Bonus valid for 7 days. Selected games only. T&Cs apply.

  • Play Golden Leprechaun Megaways at Mecca Bingo
    Deposit & Spend £10, Get 300% Bingo Bonus, 200% Slot Bonus (for Reel King Mega)

    Golden Leprechaun Megaways by Red Tiger has the ever popular theme of Irish luck.  The base game is classic Megaways with up to ways to win and exploding wins, but there’s a lot more to the game than that.  The Lucky Leprechaun can appear at any time offering a pick of three different mushrooms each of which lead to a different bonus feature – Lucky Ways which swaps symbols to guarantee a win, Random Wilds which adds up to 5 extra wilds and Wild Stacks which turns up to 4 reels wild with a multiplier based on the size of the reel.

    There’s also a free spins bonus round with an increasing multiplier; at the start of the bonus round the pick-me runs to determine which of the three features will be active throughout.

    Golden Leprechaun Megaways can be played from 10p a spin and has RTP of 94.72%.

  • Play Mystery Reels Megaways at Mecca Bingo
    Deposit & Spend £10, Get 300% Bingo Bonus, 200% Slot Bonus (for Reel King Mega)

    Mystery Reels Megaways is a slot game from Red Tiger, the latest provider to start using the Megaways mechanic under licence from Big Time Gaming.  It has 6 reels each of which can hold up to 7 symbols, giving a maximum potential of 117,649 ways to win, and RTP of 96.18%.

    The theming is simple – a classic fruit machine – and the game does not contain the extra horizontal reel seen in Megaways titles such as Bonanza.  The base game does have one bonus feature, the Mystery symbol.  This clones itself a random number of times across the reels then all transform into the same symbol.

    The bonus round in Mystery Reels Megaways cannot be bought – it is triggered by 3 or more free spins symbols and this typically takes hundreds or even thousands of spins.  Once the bonus round has been triggered, the player can choose to gamble it in the hope of getting a better bonus round.  It’s not an all or nothing gamble – the bonus round is 8 free spins and the worst that can happen is that it gets reduced to 4 free spins, whereas a winning gamble boosts it to 12 or 20 free spins.  In the bonus round, each winning spin or cascade increments the multiplier by 1, so more is very much better.

  • Play Who Wants To Be A Millionaire at Spin Rider
    100% Slot Bonus (up to £300) & 50 Bonus Spins

    Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is the latest release from Big Time Gaming, the creators of Bonanza and of the Megaways system.  Big Time Gaming are known for the extreme high volatility of their slot games and thrilling bonus rounds – and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire has by far the most insane and ridiculous bonus round yet seen.

    The base game plays very much like Big Time Gaming’s earlier release Extra Chilli, and the bonus round builds on a concept first seen in Extra Chilli – the ability to gamble the bonus round in the hope of getting a better one.  In Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, the entire point is to gamble the bonus round and just as in the TV show, the player has to choose correctly from four options at each step to increase the number of free spins.   Win at every step and the 8 spins initially awarded can go all the way up to 50 spins.  As in the TV show, there are three lifelines and there’s also safety nets at 10 spins and 20 spins ensuring that once you get past the risky first step you can’t lose the entire bonus round.  As the free spins are played with a multiplier that increases with every win, every extra spin won can make a huge difference to potential winnings.

  • Play Vikings Unleashed Megaways at Gala Spins
    Jackpot King Slots: Deposit & Play £10+, Get £40 Bonus

    Vikings Unleashed Megaways is one of several games produced by Blueprint using the Megaways mechanic under licence from Big Time Gaming (who invented it).  The base game plays very like Bonanza and what makes it different to many other Megaways slots is the bonus round – or rather the elaborate mechanisms for setting up the bonus round.  There are FOUR different options for buying the bonus round (priced at 25x, 50x, 75x and 100x spin value) and before the bonus round starts the player can gamble to get a better bonus round – one extra spin and one multiplier step at a time.  Gambling successfully all the way up to the maximum of 27 free spins starting with a 10x multiplier can open the way for a very large win indeed, as every cascade win during the bonus round increases the multiplier by 1, but lose a gamble and you lose the entire bonus round.

    Vikings Unleashed Megaways has RTP of 96.5% and can be played from 20p a spin; at that spin value the cheapest buy the bonus round option (5 free spins) is priced at £5.

    * 18+. New customers only. Certain countries only. Min deposit and spend £10 cash on any Jackpot King game = £40 bonus. x20 wagering reqs apply. Bonus valid for 7 days. Selected games only. T&Cs apply.

  • Play Genie Jackpots Megaways at Gala Bingo
    Deposit & Play £10, Get £50 Bingo Bonus

    Genie Jackpots Megaways is a sequel to the very popular Genie Jackpots slot by Blueprint, but unlike the original it is not part of the Jackpot King progressive jackpot suite.  Instead, it uses the Megaways game mechanic under license from Big Time Gaming. In Megaways, the symbols vary in height so the number of possible winning combinations across the 6 reels changes with each spin depending on the number of symbols that land on each reel.  In Genie Jackpots Megaways, 2 to 5 symbols can land on a reel – giving 15,625 ways to win if all 6 reels have 5 symbols each. Symbols score the same and count as one symbol only regardless of height.

    Genie Jackpots Megaways has the wealth of bonus features you’d expect from a Blueprint slot game.  There are four bonus features (similar to the bonus features in that Blueprint classic Ted) which can be triggered by any spin plus four different bonus rounds (one of which is selected via the Cave of Wonders pick-me when free spins are triggered by the appearance of 3 or more scatters).  Can’t be bothered to wait for the bonus round?  Depending on where you play Genie Jackpots Megaways you may be able to use the Genie Bonus Wish feature (another Big Time Gaming invention) to trigger the bonus round immediately for 100x stake (some operators do not have this feature enabled).

  • Play White Rabbit at Casper Games
    Deposit £10+To Open The Ghostly Chest, Top Prize 500 Starburst Spins

    White Rabbit by Big Time Gaming was groundbreaking – the first slot game in which players could go directly to the bonus round by paying 100x stake.

    White Rabbit is a Megaways slot but without the extra horizontal reel seen in Bonanza, Extra Chilli and many others.  The bonus round is also a bit different to usual; instead of an increasing multiplier, there is a special Cupcake symbol that makes the reel it is on increase in height by one symbol for the rest of the free spins.  When a reel reaches the maximum height of 12 symbols, between 3 and 12 extra free spins are awarded and the reel is enhanced with extra high scoring symbols and wilds.  If all reels reach maximum height there are up to 248,832 ways to win.

    The RTP of White Rabbit without buying this potentially very exciting bonus round is 97.24%; buying the bonus round immediately without collecting any BTG coins towards it has a slightly better RTP of 97.77% and as BTG coins are collected, the RTP slowly goes down to 97.24%.  This is a slot where it really is all about buying the bonus round and we suspect a great many players don’t even bother with the base game.

    In October 2019, the UK Gambling Commission moved to ban Bonus Buy slots from the UK.  White Rabbit was temporarily taken offline and returned a couple of weeks later minus the bonus buy button (it’s still possible to collect BTG coins towards the bonus but you have to wait for the price to reach 0 to trigger the bonus round).

  • Play Extra Chilli at Casino Joy
    Deposit £10 - £200, Get 100% Slot Bonus & 200 Starburst Spins

    Extra Chilli by Big Time Gaming is a Megaways slot which was the first game in which you could not only buy the bonus round (for 50x stake) but also gamble it (repeatedly) to get a better bonus round with an extra 4 free spins – extra spicy indeed!  Megaways slots are quite high variance anyway and the ability to buy and gamble the bonus round sent the variance through the roof.  The UKGC considered this to be too dangerous and the game had to be temporarily removed from the UK market in October 2019.  A month later, it is back but without the buy the bonus round button; you can still collect Big Time Gaming coins towards triggering it.

    If you gamble the bonus round in Extra Chilli and lose, you can return to the base game with no free spins at all which is pretty brutal.  In subsequent games with the gamble the bonus round feature, it was refined so that players could make smaller gambles to increment the free spins one at a time and have a better chance of winning.

    Play Extra Chilli long enough and you may manage to trigger what is admittedly a potentially very exciting bonus round naturally or collect enough BTG coins to start it – if you haven’t lost your shirt, your shoes and the horse you rode in on by then.  Handle with extreme care!

  • Play Monopoly MegaWays at Mecca Bingo
    Deposit & Spend £10, Get 300% Bingo Bonus, 200% Slot Bonus (for Reel King Mega)

    Monopoly Megaways is one of the latest slots to be powered by Big Time Gaming’s revolutionary Megaways engine. Its central feature is a random reel modifier that adjusts the number of symbols that appear for each spin.

    With a six-reel format, you’ve therefore got potentially thousands of ways to win. The core game, which is based on the Reel Adventures mechanic, requires you to move Mr Monopoly around a virtual board with the squares in which he lands having a direct impact on your progress.

    For instance, landing on GO will trigger the biggest number of Megaways spins possible while landing on street squares populates them with houses. Collect at least five and you’ll unlock the Free Spins feature which rewards you with 8 free spins – however these increase according to the number of houses you own. It’s not really possible to do this feature-laden game full justice here. Suffice to say though, that it takes Monopoly to a completely different dimension.

    Monopoly Megaways features upwards of 110,000 pay-lines and can be played for 10p. The game features an RTP of 96.39%

Megaways Slots

The Megaways slot game mechanic was invented by Big Time Gaming and the first slot to use it was the perennially popular Bonanza.  It is basically a rather distinctive mutant version of that old chestnut, the 243 way slot.

243 way slots have no paylines as such; winning combos consist of the same symbol repeated on each reel, starting from the left, regardless of where on the reel the symbol appears.  243 is 3 to the 5th power and this represents the number of possible different combinations of 5 of a kind on a 3 x 5 array.   Of course, there are fewer ways to score 3 of a kind (27) and 4 of a kind (81).

Megaways slots have a variable number of symbols visible on each reel each spin, and not the same on every reel either.  The 6 reels in Bonanza, for example, can contain up to 7 symbols and if they all do, there’s a staggering 117,649 ways to win.  When the reels contain less than 7 symbols (and in Bonanza reels 1 and 6 can contain as few as 2 symbols and 2-5 as few as 3) there are fewer ways to win; the game keeps track of this and displays the current number of ways to win on each spin.  Although the symbols are bigger when there are fewer of them each symbol only counts once which can be confusing if you’ve played other games where double height symbols count twice.  Most Megaways games have cascading wins (aka Avalanche) and when there is a cascade, the number of symbols on the reels doesn’t change.

Bonanza and some other Megaways games have a conveyor belt at the top of the array which is part of the Megaways system for the purposes of scoring but behaves differently when it spins (it moves sideways and is the only place wilds can appear).  Although this is heavily associated with Megaways games it is not an essential part of the Megaways mechanic – Megaways is all about the variable number of symbols per reel.

Megaways games also very often have a larger array with more ways to win in the bonus round and another common feature is a bonus round that can be bought and/or gambled, but again these are not essential features and what makes a game Megaways is the fluctuating number of symbols per reel.

Big Time Gaming own the rights to Megaways and have licensed it out to a number of other games providers, most notably Blueprint Gaming whose Diamond Mine game is very similar to Bonanza.  Blueprint have released what seems like dozens of Megaways games and other providers  – Red Tiger for example – are now starting to get in on the act.  The Megaways craze shows no signs of going out of fashion and we expect to see many more Megaways games come out in 2020.
