New Max Megaways Slot Takes Big Time Gaming’s Payout to Extreme 140,000x
The names Megaways, Max Megaways and it comes shaken, not stirred. The newly announced Big Time Gaming slot is one of the most intense yet, featuring four random base game features, both regular and enhanced Free Spins, and a Win Exchange that's supplemented with a separate Bonus Buy. All of that can lead to wins of up to 140,000x, which is a record of sorts for this Australian studio. With the game open on our screen, let’s cue you in on all the features in more detail before the official launch on the 21st of September.
Designed around the secret agent theme, Max Megaways plays like most Megaways slots. It has 10 regular symbols plus a wild card that spin on 6 reels and one additional horizontal reel that rolls in from the above. On top of occasional wins, the developers have spiced up things with four random base game features:
- Maximum Megaways - The spin is played with 7 symbols per reel.
- Vertical Wild - Wilds replace all symbols on one reel.
- Horizontal Wild - All symbols in the Extra Reel are replaced by Wilds.
- Wild Bomb - A Wild Bomb is added to the Extra reel. After any wins are paid, all symbols (except Scatter and the Wild Bomb) are replaced by new symbols.
The best part is reserved for those who get 3 or more Gold Scatters for 10 Free Spins, plus two more spins for each extra Scatter beyond the third. Players will then get to choose 2 doors that reveal extra features. If one of those Scatters is a Diamond Megascatter, which can only appear on the last reel, then the enhanced version of the bonus gets triggered. There, players can pick 3 doors instead of 2. Behind each door lies one of the following treats that’s active for the entire bonus round:
- Double Multiplier - The Free Spin Win Multiplier goes up by 2 after each reaction.
- Duplicating Wilds - Every Wild will turn each symbol in the reel below it into a Wild.
- 2 Scatter Retrigger - Two or more Scatters award extra Free Spins.
- Increased Ways - At least 5 symbols will occur on every reel.
- No Lower Symbols - Free Spins are played with the Jack, Ten and Nine removed.
Whichever way the bonus gets triggered, Max Megaways Free Spins will always have an increasing multiplier that grows with each win too.
In addition to that, the Max Megaways bonus can also be triggered through a Win Exchange. Whenever you win between 25x and 100x your stake, you’ll have the option to exchange the entire win for the chance to be awarded 10 Free Spins. The chance of winning the gamble is shown in green on a wheel. Whenever you win 100x your stake or more, you have the option to exchange 100x your stake for a guaranteed 10 Free Spins.
Last but not least, this hotly anticipated game will also have a Bonus Buy in eligible jurisdictions. Press the Bonus Buy icon to buy 10 Free Spins for 75x the stake or 10 Enhanced Free Spins for 200x stakes. Note that the RTP in each case will stay the same at 96.37%.
That’s Max Megaways in a nutshell. As always, if you want to get a shot at it, then see our BTG casinos for bonuses and where to play.
