Microgaming has entered into a deal with Big Time Gaming that will allow the company to produce its own Megaways slots, according to a press release published in Microgaming's website. Joining the likes of Blueprint Gaming, Red Tiger and Pragmatic Play, Microgaming will be an official Megaways slot producer – with its first game in the series slated for January 2021.

“Megaways™ has had huge success and we’re excited to be integrating the mechanic into some of our future games. Big Time Gaming are proven innovators, and we are delighted to extend our relationship with them and grow their presence on our platform,” says John Coleman, CEO of Microgaming.


When Will Microgaming’s First Megaways Be Released?

Microgaming has plans to release its first Megaways slot game in January. It will have a network-wide launch, which means that you’ll be able to give this game a spin at any online casino that carries Microgaming slots.

The first Microgaming slot to feature Megaways will be Shamrock Holmes. While all we know about it so far is the title, we’re definitely excited to see what they come up with gameplay-wise.

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”, says Nik Robinson, Big Time Gaming CEO.


Microgaming’s Nobleways Slots

Microgaming previously experimented with mechanics similar to Megaways with games like Mayan Eagle Nobleways. The game takes place on a 6x6 grid, which provides players with 15,625 winning ways on each spin along with cascading reels.

It also features a free spins bonus with unlimited increasing multipliers – something that you see often in Megaways games. However, despite offering players a fun and interesting online gaming experience (and an impressive 13,000x top prize), Mayan Eagle Nobleways lacks the dynamic nature of Megaways games in which the number of ways to win is different on every spin.

So, we’re thrilled to see what Microgaming has planned for its first Megaways slot game. The company has a talented team of developers at its disposal and there is definitely the potential for Microgaming Megaways games to really bring something brand new to the online slots market.
