It’s been over four years since Megaways burst onto the online slot scene, and just about every top game developer has released a game using this game mechanic. Red Tiger, Blueprint and WMS are just some of the slots studios that have created Megaways games, so it’s surprising that Microgaming, arguably the most established online slots maker, hasn’t jumped on the bandwagon. Until now, that is.

Recently, Microgaming announced its licensing agreement with Big Time Gaming, which would allow the online slots maker to create its own Megaways games. The first title to feature the mechanic will be a game called Shamrock Holmes Megaways, and it is set to be released early next year.

About Shamrock Holmes Megaways

The upcoming Shamrock Holmes Megaways will be created in conjunction with All41 Studios, one of many independent studios that Microgaming works with on a regular basis. The game will feature the usual format that allows for players to trigger up to 117,649 winning ways.

Both re-spins and free spins will be included in this online slot, so players will have a number of opportunities to land wins. On top of all this, a 28,000x top prize will be available, making for some very impressive winning potential.

Megaways Games to Play in the Meantime

There’s still quite a while left to go before players across New Zealand will be able to play Shamrock Holmes Megaways at online casinos – but, we’ve got you covered. Here are some fun Megaways slots that you can try out in the meantime.

Temple Tumble Megaways

In Temple Tumble Megaways from Relax Gaming, players are offered up to 46,656 winning ways and the chance to win a top prize of 7000x. There are three different types of free spins in this game, with varying volatility to suit different players’ tastes.   

Mystery Reels Megaways

Red Tiger’s Mystery Reels Megaways is fairly unique as far as Megaways games go. It has mystery symbols scattered throughout the base game and players can spin a bonus wheel before entering the free spins round – and their bonus spins can be gambled!

Rainbow Riches Megaways

Barcrest has given one of its most popular games ever a Megaways makeover, offering players up to 117,649 winning ways and a free spins round with increasing multipliers. If you’re looking for a game that will be very similar to Shamrock Holmes Megaways, Rainbow Riches Megaways is your best bet.

We’re very much looking forward to the launch of Microgaming’s first Megaways slot, which we’re sure will be a hit among slots players. You’ll soon be able to give this game a spin for free right here at Slots Temple.
