Back in 2016, Big Time Gaming released an innovative online slot: Bonanza. This mining-themed slot game introduced Megaways, an exciting feature where the number of symbols on the reels changes with every spin, giving you up to a massive 117,649 ways to win.
Since then, dozens of other Megaways slots have been released and we’ve got plenty of them available to play here at 777SlotsBay Casino. Here’s a list of the top Megaways slots you should play in 2020.
Why not start with the slot that kicked the Megaways trend off? Bonanza is a brilliantly designed slot that’s set outside a mine built into a mountainside. It’s presented with top-notch graphics and has a catchy country-style soundtrack. Reactions occur whenever you win: all winning symbols vanish to be replaced by symbols dropping down from above.
Land four scatters to spell G-O-L-D and you’ll get to play the free spins round, where there’s an unlimited win multiplier. It starts at x1 and increases by x1 for every Reaction there is. This gives you the chance to earn some pretty hefty prizes.
Back in 2017, Blueprint Gaming released the slot Ted, which is based on the adult comedy movie of the same name. Earlier this year, the provider released an enhanced version of the slot: Ted Megaways. It features characters from the movie, including the foulmouthed Ted himself, and has a very good special feature: Thunder Buddies Free Spins.
Land enough scatters to receive twelve free spins. You can start using these straight away or you can gamble them and potentially earn more, as well as a guaranteed number of ways to win on every spin. Will you stick with twelve spins or take a risk and gamble?
This is another Megaways slot from Blueprint Gaming. It’s set in the Stone Age and is a highly volatile slot with up to 46,566 ways to win on every spin. The symbols that appear on the reels including prehistoric animals such as the woolly mammoth and the sabre tooth tiger. The highlight of this slot is the free spins round, which features wild multipliers. The more scatters you land, the more spins you get and the bigger the multipliers are. That’s not all - you’re guaranteed to win at least 10x your bet. If you don’t, you get to play the free spins round again for free.
Gonzo’s Quest is a hugely popular online 3D slot from NetEnt themed to a Spanish explorer who’s searching for the fabled city of El Dorado. New for 2020 is Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, which is based on the original and adds the Megaways feature, giving you up to 117,649 ways of forming winning combinations whenever you spin the reels.
There are plenty of special features to keep you entertained. These include Earthquakes that remove low-paying symbols, Avalanches that can give you consecutive wins and multipliers and a free spins round where the multipliers are trebled.
Created by iSoftBet, this is one of the newest Megaways slots and is themed to Morgana, who was a powerful sorceress in the Arthurian legend, with both good and evil attributes.
The slot’s main feature is the free spins round that starts with more spins the more scatters there are. As the round is played, you collect symbols to receive cash prizes, more spins and a bigger minimum number of ways to win. If you can’t wait to play the free spins round, you can buy it for a cost of 80x your bet.
Just how many bonuses and goodies will you manage to earn?
This space-themed slot is a real feast for the eyes thanks to its immersive, high-quality theming. It’s from Pragmatic Play and is one of many new Megaways slots to come out in 2020.
The wild symbol is one to look out for - it can land on reels 2-5 and whenever it appears, it expands to fill the entire reel it’s on. During the slot’s free spins round, all wilds become sticky when they expand. If you’re lucky enough, you could end up with four completely wild reels!
