Big Time Gaming Launches New Megapays Jackpot

Big Time Gaming has joined forces with Relax Gaming to bring an exciting new progressive jackpot network to market. Megapays will be a tiered and linked progressive jackpot system that will offer players the potential to win millions of pounds when they play certain online slots.

Two big names in the online casino industry have just unveiled a new progressive jackpot system called Megapays.

If the name seems familiar to you, it’s probably because it sounds an awful lot like Megaways, the feature that skyrocketed Big Time Gaming to global stardom back in 2016 when the Bonanza slot was released.

What is Megapays?

Megapays is a new progressive jackpot system that was created by Big Time Gaming and Relax Gaming. It will feature as part of exciting titles (including Bonanza) as well as new slots.

According to a recent press release, “the addition of the Megaways jackpot system turns one of the greatest slots ever created into one of the best jackpot slots the iGaming world has ever seen”. You can find out more about the upcoming Bonanza Megapays slot in our soon-to-be-published game review.

Megapays consists of a tiered and linked progressive jackpot prize system that could possibly work in a similar way to Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network. The largest jackpot will allegedly offer “frequent millionaire-making opportunities”.

The first slot that will feature the new jackpot feature is Bonanza Megapays, but it’s likely that other Megaways games by Big Time Gaming and other software developers could be given a Megapays makeover very soon.

More about Big Time Gaming

Big Time Gaming is an Australian-based game developer, and it’s the same company that created (and licensed) Megaways and Megaclusters.

It was founded in 2011 by Nik Robinson and has quickly become as popular as big-name developers such as Playtech, NetEnt and Microgaming. Some of the best-known BTG video slots include Queen of Riches, Dragon Born, Viking Quest, Gold, Bonanza, Golden Goals and Temple of Fortune.

In April 2021, the live casino provider, Evolution Gaming announced that it intended to acquire Big Time Gaming for €450m.
