According to the latest announcement coming from the company, Microgaming has secured a deal with Big Time Gaming that will allow them to integrate the studio's popular Megaways mechanic in the number of their upcoming game releases.
Exciting Plans Ahead
Following the successful completion of the deal, Microgaming plans to work together with their numerous partner studios to integrate the popular mechanic in suitable games planned for the launch in the near future.
The first game to benefit from the new deal will be Shamrock Holmes, a video slot that should see a network-wide release in the January of the next year. This is the only title that's been confirmed for the Megaways treatment thus far but players will likely see quite a few more shortly after.
Expanding Megaways Revolution
Big Time Gaming (BTG) introduced their trademark Megaways mechanic in 2016, creating a mini revolution in the world of online gambling. The new technology introduced reel modifiers, making it possible for each spin to have a different number of symbols on the reels, with the number of possible ways to win increasing up to hundreds of thousands.
John Colman, Microgaming's CEO, wasn't trying to hide the excitement about future prospects. Emphasizing the team behind BTG are proven innovators, he stated Microgaming was delighted over this new relationship.
As for Big Time Gaming, Nik Robinson, the first man of the company, said that it has always been their desire to bring the Megaways revolution to as many players as possible. Partnering up with Microgaming helps bring them much closer to that goal as there are very few companies with that strong of a presence in the iGaming sector.
As Robinson stated, Microgaming are real pioneers of the industry and Big Time Gaming are happy to be able to contribute in some way to their story while simultaneously continuing to achieve their own goals.
