Microgaming Ink BTG Megaways™ Slot Deal
Fans of Microgaming will soon have the chance to enjoy Big Time Gaming’s (BTG) most popular online slots mechanism when they spin the reels of new games from their favourite provider. A new deal between the two companies enables the provider to use the Megaways™ mechanic in several forthcoming releases.
According to Microgaming, it will develop the new online and mobile-optimised slots that are appropriate for the mechanism alongside its network of independent studios. In the last year, the brand has partnered with several independent studios to add a fresh twist to its portfolio and expand their reach in the ever-growing online casino industry.
The award-winning provider’s CEO, John Coleman, said that the company was excited by the prospect of using Megaways in new games, as the mechanic was an enormous success for BTG. He added that he was glad that the deal enabled the brands to further their relationship; something that will result in a greater presence for the innovative studio on the provider’s platform.
First New Title Revealed
Microgaming did not waste any time in putting BTG’s Megaways to good use. The provider revealed that the first new slot to feature the mechanic is Shamrock Holmes.
The game, which has a crime-solving leprechaun as the main character, will have 6 reels and more than 100,000 Ways to Win when the mechanic is active. Players might also trigger other features, such as Free Spins, Multipliers, and Rolling Reels that will increase their payout potential tremendously.
Cowboys Are Contenders
With one of the best offences you’ll see in football, there’s a good chance that the Dallas Cowboys could come out tops in this year’s NFL season. If they do, it’s not likely to be because of their head coach, as the team replaced Jason Garrett with Mike McCarthy, formerly of the Green Bay Packers. Neither Garrett nor McCarthy won many fans with their lackluster coaching skills.
If the Cowboys do win, it will probably be because of the efforts of players such as Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, CeeDee Lamb, and Dark Prescott.
How Megaways Works
BTG unveiled the Megaways mechanic in 2016, when it released its Dragon Born online slot. It’s a reel modifier that can trigger on any spin. When active, players can see between 2 and 8 symbols on each reel.
The changing sizes of the reels can create as many as 117,649 Ways to Win. This effectively means that each spin is like playing a different game, and that players can land massive winning combinations. The winning potential can be intensified by the addition of features such as Multipliers, as can be seen in some of BTG’s previous releases.
Reaching An Even Bigger Audience
Speaking about the deal with Microgaming, BTG CEO Nik Robinson said that it will help his company to realise its goal of taking the online slots mechanism to a wider audience. He added that the provider still is a dominant force in the gaming world, and that the company was happy to play a role in adding to the story of a pioneer of the industry. According to Microgaming, Shamrock Holmes is due to be released in January 2021 and it’s sure to be a huge hit with players in Canada and beyond.
