Game Properties

Max Megaways is an online slot game that can be played on any device. The lair is constructed of 6 reels spinning vertically. The grid even has an extra horizontal reel at the top to increase your possibility to win. The number of symbols landing on the main reels changes with each spin, so the ways to win go up to 117.649.

Many Big Time Gaming slots are highly volatile. Max Megaways is no different. Stakes range from 0.20 to USD/EUR 20 per spin with a RTP of 96.37%.

Max Megaways has a potential maximum win of 139,200x your total bet. With these numbers we dare to fight the battle.


Strange enough the symbols are not theme related but it works fine to land the necessary combinations. The standard 9-A card symbols are paying 0.3-0.5x the stake for a 6-of-a-kind. For the premium jewel symbols is this 0.6-5x the bet for a 6-of-a-kind.

Wild symbols (looks like a blue roulette wheel) replace all normal symbols and only appear on the extra horizontal reel. The only exception is when they are created by the Vertical Wild or Duplicating Wild bonuses.

Bonus Features

With the help of some useful gadgets, Max Megaways has been able to take on all sorts of missions and win them with ease. There is a lot going on. After reading all the information below, we ensure you’ll be well prepared.

Use of symbols in a winning way will remove them from the grid and replace them with new ones from above or from the right on the extra reel. If you get another win, there is a similar reaction!

Free Spins Bonus

Max Megaways knows 2 types of scatters. Normal Golden Scatters and premium Diamond Megascatters. When you land 3 scatters you’ll win 10 free spins. For any extra scatter you’ll receive 2 additional free spins. If one of the scatters is a Diamond Megascatter, the Enhanced Free Spins are triggered. In the base game, the normal scatters only land on row 1-5. The Megascatter only on the 6th reel.

Before the Free Spins Bonus starts, you’ll have to pick 2 or 3 doors to reveal the modifiers.
Two picks for the regular free spins and three picks for the enhanced spins.
Behind the doors you can find the following modifiers:

  • Double multiplier: The win multiplier increases by x2 with each cascade, instead of the usual x1.
  • Duplicating wilds: wild symbols turn each symbol below them into wilds.
  • 2 scatter retrigger: extra free spins are rewarded by landing a minimum of 2 scatters, instead of the normal 3.
  • Increased ways: Guarantees a minimum of five symbols on reels 1 and 6, and four symbols on reels 2-5.
  • No Lower Symbols: The card symbols 9, 10 and J are removed from the reels.

The developers added more character and creativity into this online slot by using these modifiers. The modifiers you’ve chosen stay active throughout the entire bonus game.

Win exchange

There’s a new way to gamble your wins! Big Time Gaming has introduced the Win Exchange feature that allows you to swap 100x your bet for 10 free spins. The Free Spins Gamble Wheel is a risky gamble that allows players to risk up 25x or 100x their winnings on red and green sections. Landing on a red section forfeits your winnings and returns you to the main game. On the other hand, landing on the green section awards you with 10 Free Spins.


Big Time Gaming managed to create something special – one that’s not only fun for players but also aesthetically pleasing as well!
Max Megaways offers a lot of different ways to keep things interesting, with base game modifiers and reactions that allow the pace to move along nicely. Plus there are always opportunities at hand through win exchanges and several bonus features.

Put on your tux, get your gun out of the safe and go on an adventure. On this secluded island an astonishing 139,200x the bet is waiting for you!
