This week Big Time Gaming and Relax Gaming announced that they've launched a new slot jackpot mechanic that they've dubbed 'Megapays'.
The Megapays mechanic will be worked into existing games as well as new properties, including games that already feature the popular Megaways and Megaclusters game mechanics. The Megapays mechanic is a cross-brand jackpot that allows players to win larger prizes as the games will share a single prize. The first games with the mechanic are launching soon, with additional games coming down the pike.
Commenting on the launch Big Time Gaming's Nik Robinson said, "The result of plenty of research and development, Megapays™ is no doubt going to be a fantastic engagement tool that will prove to be a hit with players everywhere.
"Partnering with Relax to launch yet another industry innovation is testament to our positive working relationship. We're excited to see what our next collaboration will bring."
Relax Gaming's Simon Hammon added: "Our latest landmark collaboration with long-time partner BTG is certainly cause to celebrate! Launching our global jackpot system and operations shows growth in product strategy and depth that we're proud to be sharing with our operators and players alike.
"Driving differentiation is a core value at Relax and this new mechanic is going to allow our talented development team to push the boundaries even further."
Well this is something up my alley! I am not a jackpot games player but having well-known BTG games with jackpots is a great concept. For example, Bonanza with added jackpots is something I am looking forward to try.
