Isle of Man based betting company Microgaming has announced that they've signed a content deal with Big Time Gaming and will gain a license to use the Megaways slot mechanic in their games moving forward.
The Megaways mechanic was launched in 2016 and has been very popular among players since that time. Megaways adjusts the potential reel symbol combinations, which can see games providing hundreds of thousands of ways to score wins. The agreement will see Microgaming releasing their first game with the mechanic, Shamrock Holmes, in January of 2021.
Commenting on the deal Microgaming CEO John Coleman said, "Megaways has had huge success and we're excited to be integrating the mechanic into some of our future games. Big Time Gaming are proven innovators, and we are delighted to extend our relationship with them and grow their presence on our platform."
Big Time Gaming CEO Nik Robinson added: "We're on a mission to bring the Megaways revolution to a bigger audience, and they don't come much bigger than Microgaming.
"These guys were industry pioneers and today they remain one of the biggest forces in the gaming space," he said. "As ardent slots fans, we're delighted to be contributing in a small way to the Microgaming story."
