Microgaming Inks Megaways™ Deal
Leading online casino games developer and distribution giant Microgaming has announced the inking of a partnership alongside Big Time Gaming. The new deal will authorise the development giant to incorporate Big Time’s proprietary Megaways™ mechanic in an exciting line of upcoming new slots.
Microgaming has furthermore confirmed that it will make available the award-winning mechanic also to its network of independent game development studios so as to enable those studios to design all-new titles around Megaways™. The first Microgaming title to be boosted by Megaways™ will be Shamrock Holmes – an exciting new online slot scheduled for release across the Microgaming global network in January 2021.
About The Megaways™ Mechanic
Australia-based Big Time Gaming launched Megaways™ in 2016. The goal right from the start was to stimulate and boost player engagement in slot games with the help of a dynamic and rapid auto-fire type gaming experience.
Slots featuring Megaways™ run on an innovative new game engine allowing for up to 117,649 Ways to Win. The feature is considered by many to be an absolute revolution in the world of online slots. The system runs on a random reel modifier that enables any spin to effectively produce an infinite number of combinations – resulting in an ever-changing number of symbols spread out across the reels.
At the end of the day, players get to play a completely different game every time they log on – and games all boosted by the possibility of literally hundreds of thousands of possible ways to win real money in the bank.
The Megaways™ Story Continues
Microgaming is excited about the prospect of integrating a mechanic proven hugely successful over and over again, into some of the developer’s own future title releases, said Microgaming CEO John Coleman of the thrilling new opportunity and partnership.
Big Time Gaming are innovators in the world of games and online casino slots, which is why Coleman said the iGaming and platform aggregation giant is super satisfied with the extended relationship between the two entertainment giants – not to mention even the expanded presence Big Time will now get to enjoy on the Microgaming platform.
As Big Time Gaming Chief Executive Officer Nik Robinson rightly points out, iGaming audiences don’t really come much bigger than those enjoyed by Microgaming. And since Robinson says Big Time Gaming is on a mission to bring their award-winning Megaways™ mechanic to a bigger audience, Microgaming is in many respects the ultimate frontier.
At Big Time, they’re passionate about slots, explained Robinson, which makes contributing to the Microgaming story – even in a small way – really big news for the Megaways™ developer.
