What are the latest innovative online slots by Big Time Gaming?
Slots fans know 2020 has been a year of innovative solutions for their favourite online games. This is the year of Megaways Slots, a series of games invented by the Australian provider Big Time Gaming, which have climbed charts of all top online casinos worldwide. The key to the incredible success of these games is in the ground-braking mechanic they run on, which allows for thousands of possibile winning ways during each spin.
The unexpected success of the innovative format developed by BTG has pushed the developer to create other slot engine which break the rules of what players have experienced so far. Their latest invention is the new megaquads slot mechanic, a new way of interpreting the concept of “four” in the world of online games. In this new series of online games there is a lot to discover, let’s have a look at its main special features:

Basegame with 4 mini-slots:
in the new slot, the mechanic base game is quite different from anything you’ve seen before. The unique atmosphere of these games is created by the presence of 4 mini slots, each offering 256 winning ways. They spin simultaneously and your stake will always be multiplied by 4 (careful to your budget here). What is great about the new engine is that the four mini-slots work independently and create synergies at the same time.
Rainbow Wild Bonus:
as we just mentioned, one of the most important features in the game is the possibility of merging the mini-slots creating even more chances of creating winning combos. This happens thanks to the Rainbow Wild symbol, a symbol that reminds us of treasures hidden by leprechauns in a green land. When two of these rainbow symbols appear in adjacent mini-slots during the same spin the two mini slots merge horizontally and merge into an 8 reel big slot. At this point there are more possible win ways: you can get up to 65.536! This is a much bigger opportunity to create winning combinations.
in Megaquads slots the free spins bonus feature is triggered when four scatter symbols land anywhere in view, this means they can land on all four mini-slots and the feature will start. What happens when the free spins feature is activated is that the mini-slots will merge vertically, creating two slots, each with a potential of up to 4.096 winning ways. What is more interesting here is that during the bonus feature the Rainbow Wild symbol is active. Land two of those at the same time in the two different mini-slots in order to see the number of winning ways skyrocket to more than 16 million!
These are general features of Megaquads Slots, all games that will run on this engine will follow these basic rules (of course the system allows for variations). So far the innovative software provider has released only one title in this new series: Slot Vegas Megaquads. This game is set on the Strip and offers all the above, plus incrementing multipliers for premium symbols. The look and feel of the slot is in line with previous releases of the same provider, they are developing an idiosyncratic style every slot fan can easily recognise.
As foe Megaways Slots, the new engine might take a while to become really popular among players. All we know at the moment are rumours about new Megaquads games to be released in 2021, for example a remake of the popular Rainbow Riches slot by Barcrest, this time running on the new Megaquads mechanic. Nothing certain yet, but we are sure there will be many interesting announcements during 2021.
