Max Megaways Slot (Big Time Gaming)

Max Megaways Slot (Big Time Gaming) slotThe original creators of the Megaways engine have something and this time around, we are getting a slot by the name Max Megaways.

Given its random nature, the Megaways engine offers lots of potentials, and therefore, most developers have a lot of options to deal with.

In the review below, we get to dive deeper into what BTG is offering in their latest slot release:

Game Set-Up

Max Megaways relies on the main mechanics that are popular in other releases of this nature. By this, I mean that you will be working with 6 reels (there is an additional horizontal reel appearing at the top of the 2nd to the 5th reels) and as many as 117,649 Megaways/ ways to win.

For its features, Max Megaways has a lot of things to offer, among them Free spins bonus, Cascading Reels, Retrigger, Increasing Multiplier, Pick Bonus Symbol, as well as a Win Exchange among others.

Betting and Prizes

If you are looking for a real money slot, then you have a perfect choice in Max Megaways. To play this slot for real money, you will need just $0.20 for each spin that you make. As is common with these types of slots, up to $20 is the MAX that you can spend on a bet.

BTG has offered very impressive pay, and on a good day, you can expect payment of up to 139,200x the stake. This is one of the few slots that pay this kind of money, even by BTG standards.

However, expect to battle very high volatility that is accompanied by a decent RTP of 96.37%.

Max Megaways Slot Features

As is usual with the Megaways engine, Max Megaways relies on a random number of symbols that appear on each reel.

The typical range is between 2 and 7 symbols per column, and you can expect to get different figures at different times.

It is this randomness that ends up giving you up to 117,649. Reactions will trigger after any win, bringing new symbols to replace the winning ones.

At the top is a horizontal reel that will occasionally offer you wild symbols. These wilds will serve as substitutes as you form winning combos.

Max Megaways also offers Random modifiers that once triggered, are capable of delivering the highest number of Megaways (horizontal wilds for the horizontal reel), vertical wilds, or even some wild bombs.

Free spins remain one of my favourite features on any slot, and I’m pleased to see that BTG has included them in this title.

Between 10-16 rounds can be triggered here, and some picks will be made that help reveal their powerful modifiers. These can be things like extra ways to win, increasing multipliers, premium symbols, duplicating wilds, or even a much easier way to retrigger them.

Theme & Design

In the background, you will notice a marine view, but for the most part, the slot offers a simple mix of symbols that include Royals and gemstones.

BTG has not always been the best when it comes to slot design, and with Max Megaways, you get a standard design that you would expect from them.


Apart from the simple design, I can say that everything else is great here, and you will love the top prize if you try out the slot for real money.

However, be ready to navigate extremely high volatility, but a lot of help will also come from the slot’s fair RTP.
