Nextgen and iSoftbet announce they will be developing Megaways™ slots


Big Time Gaming has decided to give both Nextgen and iSoftbet a licence to produce Megaways slots.

Megaways-LogoThis means that these two software providers receive access to the mathematical models and the game mechanism of the popular Megaways slots.

Megaways slots are a type of unique online slots: they have different numbers of ways to win per spin and offer sometimes hundreds of thousands of possible combinations. Often there are bonus features with free spins, extra multipliers and mystery symbols.

This makes it possible to win vast amounts of money with Megaways slots: they are slots with a very high variance. Wins of 20,000 x the total bet are possible with many Megaways slots and that of course immediately explains their enormous popularity.

Up until now, there were, besides Big Time Gaming (the inventors of the Megaways slots) 4 more game providers with a Megaways licence: Relax gaming, WMS, Red Tiger Gaming and Blueprint Gaming.

And now there are two more providers added to this list, that will be allowed to completely unleash their creativity and come up with unique Megaways slots: iSoftbet and Nextgen Gaming.


What can we expect from the Megaways slots by iSoftbet and Nextgen Gaming?

It is going to be exciting to see what iSoftbet and Nextgen Gaming will produce with their Megaways slots. Up until now, the cooperation between Big Time gaming and other providers has delivered a lot of excellent Megaways-under-license slots: think for example of classic titles such as Temple Tumble, Primal, Battleship Direct Hit and Vikings Unleashed.

iSoftbet-logoiSoftbet is an excellent slots provider that in the past, has proven to be capable of making original slots with innovative bonus features. Although they have not been considered one of the big players in the industry, they have been showing steady growth over the years, and their slots can be played in a growing number of online casinos.

nextgen-gaming-logoNextgen Gaming is one of the biggest casino game producers in the world and is a part of Scientific Games. They have built up an extensive portfolio of (mainly) online slots with well-known titles such as Medusa, Medusa II, Foxin’ Wins and 300 Shields.

Their first Megaways slot is already known: Medusa Megaways. We are big fans of the original Medusa slot and find this to be a very logical choice for a first Megaways slot.

We have already seen Medusa Megaways in action, and it has to be said: it all looks very cool. Think of stacked wilds, free spins, unlimited multipliers and mystery wilds.

In any case, it is going to be a lot of fun to see what these established providers will do with the Megaways concept.
