MEGAWAYS Casino is a slot and casino site from Gamesys, new for 2021. In keeping with the theme, the welcome offer free spins are on an exclusive Megaways game (you’ll need to play through your deposit to claim them) and all winnings are paid in cash.
MEGAWAYS Casino replaces and has inherited the player base of a previous Gamesys brand, Starspins, so if you had an account there you’ll find it has been carried over and there’s no need to sign up again. It’s a massive improvement over the old site, with a much more modern user interface.
As you’d expect. MEGAWAYS Casino is big on Megaways slots. Just in case you’ve been off the grid for a while and aren’t familiar with Megaways, it’s a slot game mechanic first developed by Big Time Gaming and licensed out to a plethora of other game providers. The original Megaways game – and one of the most perennially popular slot games in recent years – was Bonanza, and at MEGAWAYS Casino it’s given pride of place.
In a “ways” slot game, there are no paylines as such and combinations of winning symbols occur when there’s at least one on each reel starting from the left hand side of the play area. The very common 5 x 3 reels array produces 243 ways to win. In a Megaways game, the number of symbols per reel, and therefore the number of ways to win, changes with every spin and in a spin where every reel has the maximum number of symbols (usually 6 or 7) the number of ways to win can run into the hundreds of thousands. Megaways slots also often (but not always) have a bonus round with an increasing multiplier. These features make Megaways slot games a big player favourite and many classic games including Gonzo’s Quest, Fishin’ Frenzy, Twin Spin and Rainbow Riches now come in Megaways versions.
It was only a matter of time before someone themed a whole casino round Megaways games, and since that someone is Gamesys, the casino has much more to offer than just the games themselves. Trust, safety, community and fairness are integral to the Gamesys ethos and the emphasis is very firmly on entertainment value; they are well known for the quality of their player promotions. These include a choice of free daily games, in which you turn over tiles to reveal special symbols and win cash or free spins if you manage to collect a matching set over the course of a week.
MEGAWAYS Casino is unlike other Gamesys sites in not having any poker or bingo, but it does have a live casino area with Crazy Time, Deal Or No Deal Live, Football Studio Pro and Mega Ball as well as the usual card and table games. And just to reassure you in case you thought they only offer Megaways slots – even the most diehard Megaways fan wants to play something else from time to time so there’s plenty of other slot games to choose from, from all time classics like Cleopatra and Immortal Romance, to Gamesys exclsuives like Around the Reels In 80 Wilds and Double Bubble, to hot new releases. Not to forget the progressive jackpots which include Mega Moolah, Jackpot King and a double drop version of the Red Tiger dailies with an early (pre 8pm) and a late (pre midnight) drop.
All in all, another winner from Gamesys.
The Responsible Gaming area of the site (which is located in a subdomain along with FAQs and other user help documents) is split into 4 easy to understand sections. Safer Gaming includes information about GAMSTOP and how to minimise gambling adverts, self assessment questions, advice and links. Account Limits is all about how to set deposit limits and session reminders. Cool Off is about how to set a non-revocable time out of 24 hours to 6 weeks. Self Exclusion is about how to set up self exclusion and includes resources for getting further help.
