Innovative game developer Big Time Gaming is to share its patented MegaWays slot mechanic to iSoftBet after the two agreed a licensing deal.
The deal means that iSoftBet can deploy the MegaWays random reel modifier system in its original and branded titles. The mechanic means that any given spin will produce a different number of symbols across the reels, allowing players to experience a different game with every spin.
Nik Robinson, CEO of Big Time Gaming, said: “MegaWays has proved to be one of the most innovative game innovations in the history of online slots, and we are thrilled to be sharing our patented and trademarked mechanic with iSoftBet.
“iSoftBet has emerged as a formidable game developer and has built a substantial portfolio of original and branded slots. We believe that MegaWays is in very good hands with the iSoftBet team, and we look forward to seeing what they come up with.”
Michael Probert, chief commercial officer at iSoftBet, added: “iSoftBet has been creating some really exciting slot content recently in over 15 regulated markets, including Italy, Spain, Portugal and Sweden and we are always looking for ways to expand and improve our offering.
“We are very excited to get our hands on the MegaWays format and we have game producers itching to create something a little bit different so watch this space.”
Big Time Gaming is the developer behind huge hits like Bonanza, White Rabbit and Extra Chilli, while the MegaWays mechanic also features in its recently-launched Who Wants to be a Millionaire? title – the most successful branded slot of all time.
