Some of the most popular online pokies out there today are the Megaways pokies. Megaways is a game mechanic that was developed by Big Time Gaming, and it can now be found on certain hit titles such as Bonanza Megaways, White Rabbit Megaways, and Extra Chilli Ways. Several other leading online casino software providers such as Red Tiger Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, Pragmatic Play, and NetEnt, have also obtained special licensing agreements to allow them to use the innovative Megaways technology on their pokies.
In October 2020, Microgaming became the latest major software provider to obtain a Megaways licensing agreement with Big Time Gaming (BTG), which will see some of the upcoming pokies featuring this exciting technology. The most exciting thing about Megaways pokies is that some lucky spins can be played with up to 177,649 different ways to win. The sizes of the symbols can vary on each reel (2 to 5 symbols), and you never know exactly how many win ways the next spin will be played with.
“We’re on a mission to bring the Megaways™ revolution to a bigger audience, and they don’t come much bigger than Microgaming. These guys were industry pioneers and today they remain one of the biggest forces in the gaming space,” said the Big Time Gaming CEO, Nik Robinson. He then finished by saying, “As ardent slots fans, we’re delighted to be contributing in a small way to the Microgaming story.”
In January 2021, Microgaming will be releasing its first ever Megaways pokie – a game called Shamrock Holmes Megaways. Players from New Zealand will be able to access this new online pokie as soon as it’s released over at several trusted Kiwi online casinos such as 888 Casino and Casino.com. You’ll be able to play on the game in the real money mode or free play demo mode, and it will take just seconds to launch in most web browsers.
The Microgaming CEO, John Coleman, also commented, saying, “Megaways™ has had huge success and we’re excited to be integrating the mechanic into some of our future games.” He continued, “Big Time Gaming are proven innovators, and we are delighted to extend our relationship with them and grow their presence on our platform.” All of these comments were taken directly from an official Microgaming press release.
