Megaways - a new era of online slots

Online slots have more or less maintained the same game mechanics throughout their existence. In recent times online slot producers have made some changes that have really changed things up. For example you will find a lot of slots nowadays featuring tumbling/cascading reels, which gives players more for their spin. Megaways is another change to online slot game mechanics that more and more software companies have included in their slots. In this article we will be looking at Megaways slots, and tell you exactly how they work! Keep reading to find out more.

So what is Megaways?

Back in 2015 a company by the name of Big Time Gaming, based in Australia, released the Megaways gaming system. In a nutshell Megaways involves altering the number of symbols present on the reels on each spin. Where you are playing on a 5 row slot this means that there could be between 1 and 5 symbols present on the reels. The number of symbols in view will determine how many Megaways are present on that particular spin. Therefore where all possible symbols are in play you would reach the maximum number of megaways for that slot.

It is not uncommon for Megaways slots to have upwards of hundreds of thousands of ways to win, as part of their marketing. This of course looks much better than the usual 25 payline system. You should note that where a slot shows 117,649 Megaways this isn't applicable to every spin. This amount represents the maximum number of ways to win when all possible symbols are on the reels. Regardless, the Megaways system is a great feature that has a lot going for it and is no surprise that it has gained so much popularity in such a short space of time.

How to play Megaways slots

Instead of the usual payline structure, megaways slots form combinations by matching symbols regardless of where they are situated on the reels. In essence this means that winning combinations are more easily formed, which will deliver greater payouts. This system, appropriately called the Megaways mechanic, has changed the way online slots are played!

All you have to do is set your stake for the spin, and allow the game mechanic to do the rest. It may seem confusing at first but you will soon find this way of playing online slots easier than it looks!
