Big hits from Big Time Gaming to launch for Ontario players July 26
Two new Megaways slots from legendary Australian games studio Big Time Gaming (BTG) are about to hit the Ontario market. Max Megaways and Vegas Megaways will make their Canadian debuts together on July 26 via partners of Evolution. That includes major Ontario operators like 888, BetMGM, LeoVegas and Rush Street Interactive.
Max Megaways is a Bond-esque caper with a license to thrill while Vegas Megaways is a game writ large in neon, transplanting a slice of the Las Vegas Strip to your living room.
BTG changed the way we thought about slots when it developed the Megaways mechanic, a powerful random-reel-modifier that alters the number of winning paylines with every spin meaning there can be anything up to 117,649 ways to win. BTG has since licensed the mechanic to numerous game developers and Megaways has become and industry standard and player favourite.
But BTG does not rest on its heels and these two games are packing all kinds of clever and exciting mechanics.
In Max Megaways, you play the titular debonair secret agent as he infiltrates an arch supervillain’s remote volcano-island lair and help avert a missile launch that could turn every city in the world into liquid hot magma.
With every base game spin and reaction, there is a chance to score a bonus in the form of Maximum Megaways, Vertical Wilds, Horizontal Wilds or Wild Bombs. There’s also a Megascatter Enhanced Free Spins feature where you can select three doors into the volcano lair to reveal your free spin bonuses.
Meanwhile, in glitzy Vegas Megaways, you have a chance of triggering one of four bonuses in the base game in Maximum Megaways, Vertical Wild, Horizontal Wild or Wild Bomb. You can also hit up the VIP Gamble if you’re feeling lucky for the chance to climb a ladder to win up to 50 free spins. Along the way you can collect special VIP Tips to help you make the right choices.
Both games include BTGs popular Bonus Buy and Win Exchange features for players who want to jump right into the action. Bonus Buy lets you buy in to the bonus round directly, while, with Win Exchange, you get the chance to gamble big wins for more spins.
“Since we began releasing content in Ontario earlier this year, we’ve had some great feedback from players who really enjoy the new mechanics we drop into our games,” the Chief Executive Officer for BTG, Nik Robinson, said. “That’s why we’re really excited about Max Megaways and Vegas Megaways because these two titles really take things up a notch in terms of engagement and playability.”
“For years, BTG has been pushing the boundaries of how we think about casino gaming with each new release,” the Chief Commercial Officer North America for Evolution, Jeff Millar, said. “Max Megaways and Vegas Megaways were massive hits for Evolution when we launched them in other markets last year. The joy of these games is that there’s so much going on in terms of amazing features and bonuses but they’re still simple to play. We think they will be smash hits in Ontario.”
