What are Megaways Pokies?
January 9, 2020
Megaways™ is a popular game mechanic that was pioneered by Big Time Gaming, and it can now be found on more than 30 popular online pokies. The exciting thing about the Megaways game mechanic is that you never know how many ways to win each spin will be played with. Most Megaways pokies today have 6 reels, and on each spin, there can be anywhere from just a few hundred different win ways, up to as many as 117,649 different ways to win per spin.
Each reel can have anywhere from two to eight symbols, and each symbol can be of varying size, appearing as just a regular-sized symbol, partially stacked or fully stacked, and this has proven to be extremely popular among online pokie enthusiasts. You can now find the Megaways game mechanic on a growing number of online pokies from various other independent studios such as Blueprint Gaming, RT Gaming (Reel Time Gaming), NextGen Gaming, Red Tiger Gaming, Scientific Games / SG Digital (Bally Technologies and WMS Gaming), and Iron Dog Studio.
There’s also a new Megaways online pokie from NetEnt and Red Tiger Gaming called Piggy Riches Megaways, which is officially set to arrive in casinos on Thursday 23rd January 2020. Online pokies with the Megaways game mechanic are generally always available in the real money mode and free play demo mode, and they all have wide betting ranges, catering to everyone from low rollers to high rollers. You can play on these games either on desktop or mobile, and they take just seconds to launch in most web browsers, no download required.
Some of the most popular Megaways pokies that I can recommend checking out to begin with include Diamond Mine Megaways, Bonanza Megaways, Slots O’ Gold Megaways, Irish Riches Megaways, Buffalo Rising Megaways, and Return of Kong Megaways. If you enjoy playing on any of these top-rated titles, then you should also enjoy playing on games such as Monopoly Megaways, Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways, Genie Jackpots Megaways, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megaways, and Raging Rhino Megaways.
Other notable mentions include Temple of Treasure Megaways, Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways, Mystery Spin Deluxe Megaways, Mystery Reels Megaways, Legacy of Ra Megaways, Gods of Olympus Megaways, Vikings Unleashed Megaways, Kingmaker Megaways, and Wolf Legend Megaways, to name just a few great games. Many of these Megaways pokies can now be found at top NZ casino sites such as Casino.com and 888 Casino.
