3 Of The Best Megaways™ Casino Slots To Try This Summer



In the world of online gambling perhaps the hottest thing in 2019 has been Megaways™ slots. Since these extraordinary games arrived on the scene in 2016 they have steadily grown in popularity until it seems that every week a new title with this unique reel format is released to an expectant audience. This revolutionary game engine was created by Australian gambling outfit, Big Time Gaming. It uses an expanding reels technology so that after each spin up to seven symbols can appear on any of the six reels of the slot. When all six reels display seven symbols, then 117,649 pay lines are created.  This is way over and above the standard number of paylines (until Megaways™, 100 paylines was seen as a lot!). 


Of course, more paylines means more ways to win. And you can find out for yourself by playing one of the three games we’ve listed below. These are our choice for the best Megaways™ slots of 2019 so far. They are a great way to while away a few hours in the summer heat. Have fun!



  • Legacy of Ra! Megaways™



You can win up to 50,000x your stake whilst playing Blueprint’s Legacy of Ra Megaways™ slot. The game, like many classic slots, has an Ancient Eyptian theme, with pyramids, scarabs and hieroglyphs all appearing in the graphics. The trick to winning big is to get to the free spins round which you can do by landing special ‘scatter’ symbols on the reels. It’s possible to land up to 50 free spins AND you can re-trigger them by landing more scatters during your free spins rounds. And of course the reels themselves expand to create up to 15,625 ways to win on every spin!



  • Rainbow Riches Megaways™



Even someone with just a passing interest in online slots or fruit machines will probably recognise the Rainbow Riches brand. This iconic theme, created by Barcrest and featuring an Irish leprechaun, a pot of gold, a rainbow, and lots of emerald greens, golds and blues, has been around for some time now. In fact, there are more than 30 different versions of Rainbow Riches slots. So it’s no surprise that here we find ourselves with a Megaways™ version of the game. It’s a monster of a slot that has six reels and up to seven rows per reel to give you up to 117,649 ways to win per spin. Aim for the free spins round by landing scatter symbols and you could boost your wins with lots of multipliers and re-triggers. 



  • Raging Rhino Megaways™



Another legendary slot brand is Raging Rhino, built by WMS. It was famous for being a ‘high variance’ game – that means it pays out infrequently but when it does, it pays out BIG. That means lots of gamblers have spend time and money trying to chase down those epic wins. Well now, things just got crazier. WMS have bolted the Megaways™ engine onto this savannah-themed game and given it the boost of 117,649 ways to win. This slot uses ‘cascading wins’ which means that for every winning spin, all winning symbols are removed from the reels and replaced with new ones. If more winning lines are created, the process repeats. And so on, and so on, until no more winning lines are created. 


There are also multipliers and free spins galore to give you the chance of winning more than 10,000x your stake on a single spin! 


That is our pick of the best Megaways™ slots of 2019 so far. There’s plenty more to try and you can keep up to date with the latest Megaways™ news on Big Time Gaming’s own website. And if you do play these slots, remember to gamble responsibly.
