What is different about the Megaways Mechanic?

The Megaways Mechanic is the brainchild of Big Time Gaming which allows for a level of uncertainty not seen before in casino slots. The main similarities with regular slot games are that wins are in the same traditional format; matching symbols across adjacent reels will form winning combinations. Despite this particular similarity, there are some notable differences between regular slot games and those containing the Megaways Mechanic.


Online slots that contain the Megaways Mechanic are traditionally played on up to 6 reels where there are up to 117,649 ways to win with usually 2 to 7 symbols per reel! This can potentially create a lot more different combinations than regular slot games with the possibility of massive wins and triggering whichever Bonus Features may be on offer.

Bonus Features

A lot of the slots featuring the Megaways Mechanic will also include a multiplier and/or modifier Bonus Feature so any wins you do receive may be increased even further! In addition to this, many Megaways slots are including a range of other Bonus Features, including Respins and the legendary Free Spins Bonus which can lead to potentially big wins!

Cascading Reels

Several of the Megaways slots also include Cascading Reels, incorporated within the Megaways Mechanic. This means that any winning combinations involve the symbols disappearing and being replaced by other symbols falling from above. This can potentially lead to further winning combinations being formed, meaning potentially bigger wins!
