Megaways Slots Explained



Megaways Slots have become increasingly popular in the world of online casino gaming. Players across the world enjoy the results of Big Time Gaming’s game mechanic.  This article will explain how Megaways Slots work and give some examples of the most popular games.


Megaways Slots Meaning

Megaways Slots is a new video-slot engine with the potential for up to 117.649 winning ways (or more). The first Megaways is Bonanza, released in 2016, the series now counts almost 100 titles.

Megaways are different to traditional slot machines in two key ways. Firstly, the number of available paylines changes from spin to spin. Megaways Slots feature six reels.  The difference is that the number of symbols on each of those reels changes randomly from one spin to the next, up to a maximum of seven symbols per reel. This means that there is a different number of ‘ways’ (paylines) on every spin.

Secondly,  wins require the same symbols on adjacent reels. On a traditional slot, wins are earned by lining up symbols along the slot’s paylines. On Megaways Slots a win is earned by landing identical symbols on adjacent reels from as few as three reels up to all six.
