Megaways Slots

Updated 05/06/2020

If you are one of our loyal Slot Boss customers you’ll have noticed that a newer style of slots is starting to find its way regularly into the Slot Boss library and that style is Megaways slots. As this is being written, we have what we regard as the five best Megaways slots on our site but we’d be very surprised if that number wasn’t doubled or even tripled by the end of 2019.

Megaways is Big Time Gaming’s invention in which you will never know how many win lines each spin will create. Every time a Megaways slot is spun each reel can have between two and eight symbols which can create tens of thousands of winning combinations.

In order to explain Megaways slots, we believe it is best to look at a game whilst we describe it, so we’d recommend having the Tiki Treasures Megaways slot open so you can read and experience the slot at the same time. Once you’ve passed the game’s two opening pages, you’ll arrive at the slot reels. In this case, Tiki Treasures allows players to play with anywhere between 2 and 7 symbols on each reel meaning that the maximum the reels can spin is 7x5, which allows us to work out exactly how many ways we can win but we’ll get to that a bit later. As there are more ways than ever before to win, the winning potential of each symbol is slightly smaller and due to the aspect of the cascading reels of Tiki Treasures, players have the opportunity to stack their wins.

If you’re wanting to know the mathematics behind Megaways, keep reading, if not we’d recommend scrolling down to the next section entitled: “Five things you must know about Megaways”. So let's get into the mathematics of the piece and if it slightly confuses you at first, trust us, you’re not the only one and it is definitely worth knowing about.

Megaways Slots Mechanics

So in Tiki Treasures, we have the potential for 7 symbols per reel and a grand total of 117,649 ways to win. So how does this work? Well we start off with the reels, we have seven symbols per reel, so we simply need to do 7x7 to find out the total for one reel. Then we need to continually times the number we get by the number of columns the reels have. For example:

7 X 7 = 49

49 X 7 = 343

343 X 7 = 2,401

2,401 X 7 = 16,807

16,807 X 7 = 117,649

As the reels maximum size is 7x5, this gives us our total number of paylines which in this case is 117,649.

Three Best Megaways Games

Now, let us get into the reason we’re here: Slot Boss presents our top three Megaways slots.

Tiki Treasures Megaways

The latest Megaways game to join Slot Boss comes in at number three on our list and may end higher up in the future, as all three of the games on this list are of fantastic quality and realistically their positions depend solely on personal preference, but as things stand Blueprint Gaming’s fantastic Tiki Treasures Megaways earns our Bronze medal.

Players travel to and explore the depths of the Polynesian Jungle with the aim of finding the greatest treasures the Islands have to offer. The game's mixture of Cascading Reels, Mystery Symbols, Free Spins and a Progressive Jackpot means that Tiki Treasures has enough content to keep players entertained.

The fantastic design work on its own would usually be enough for a slot game to be a hit but when you combine that with the creative and engaging gameplay, it is clear that Tiki Treasures Megaways will be one of Blueprint’s top casino games for years to come.

Fishin Frenzy Megaways

The next game on our list enters from the deep blue sea and boy is it a catch! Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways remarkably offers players an astounding 50 Free Spins if they manage to reel in 6 scatter symbols and during the bonus feature of the game, players can win up to 50x their stake depending on the size of the fish they bring in.

The game has 15,625 different ways to win and has all the original content from the first Fishin Frenzy which was unsurprisingly a big hit when it was released back in October 2017.

If the gods of the seas look approvingly on the player, they could possibly walk away with a whopping 10,000x their stake. Players can buy into the bonus round of the game for 100x their stake and all Free Spins will be staked at the same amount that triggered the round. If more than one fisherman appears they will all collect the same fish, so there is potential for players to double, treble or even quadruple all of their winnings from one spin.

Slots O Gold Megaways

Perhaps the game that may suffer due to the introduction of Rainbow Riches as both games have the same theme and style. However, Slots O Gold in our opinion is one of the few Irish games that we can really compare to Rainbow Riches and say In terms of fantastic gaming, they’re close. Now if you’ve played one and not the other, that should give you a grasp of how high the standard now is for Irish themed slots

The main feature of Slots O Gold is the Rainbow Respins feature where if a Leprechaun appears on reels 2, 3, or 4, the symbol will expand making the entire reel wild and triggering the rainbow respins feature. A maximum of three Leprechaun Wilds can appear on the reels at one time with one additional respin awarded for each new Wild to appear on the reels during the bonus round. Players can also have a spin of the Wheel King feature where they can win ‘Big Win’ multipliers or Jackpot King Progressive Pot segments. As players move through the game’s multiple stages the Jackpot will increase and players can play for the biggest prize possible in the final stage.

Honourable Mentions

Mystery Reels Megaways

Red Tiger have jumped into the Megaways family with their Mystery Reels slot. This classic fruit slot is a revamped edition of their original Mystery Reels slot. Here you will find a more traditional fruit themed game that has free spins and a mystery symbol bonus. If you can land a Mystery Symbol on the reels it will clone itself a random number of times. When all of these symbols are in place they will reveal a mystery symbol for a guaranteed win. If you can land three free spin symbols on your reels you could end up winning between four and 40 free spins.

Slots ‘O Gold Megaways

Slots ‘O Gold Megaways is another brilliant Megaways slot that is played on six reels with 15,625 potential win lines. This Irish themed slot from Blueprint Gaming comes with not only thousands of ways to win but also re-spins and the Great Wheel bonus. This game is also a Jackpot King game meaning every spin has the potential to win the huge progressive jackpot. When playing keep an eye out for the lucky leprechaun as he will expand to make entire reels wild whilst triggering a re-spin. The Wheel King can be activated offering spins of a wheel with a “big win” multiplier section. Slots ‘O Gold is another welcome addition to the Megaways family.

Monopoly Megaways

The iconic board game of Monopoly has been transformed into one of the innovative megaways slots on offer at Slot Boss.
