Every developer worth their salt seems to want to get in on the MegaWays slot format. Developed by Big Time Gaming, the MegaWays platform is all the rage right now, and providers such as Blueprint Gaming, Red Tiger Gaming, NextGen Gaming, Barcrest, Relax Gaming and many more have been quick to lease it from BTG. Shuffle Master is one of the latest to do so.
Shuffle Master has taken to the MegaWays format with ease, as is evident in their first game using this engine. Making its debut this November is 88 Fortunes: MegaWays. The slot is based on their successful game of the same name and can provide players with the usual MegaWays experience albeit with a few twists.
Shuffle Master Gets In on the MegaWays Action
The 88 Fortunes: MegaWays slot features the same 6 reels and 117,649 paylines found in other slots with this engine. The game also supports 7 rows of symbols and can be played for as little as 0.08 per spin. At the same time, wagers can rise to 88.00 per spin. The number 8 is considered lucky in Asia, so it is used here to great effect. It makes this release cheaper than seemingly every other MegaWays slot.
As for prizes, they stand at around 250,000 coins in all, in a game which has an RTP rate of 96.27%. Of course, 88 Fortunes, like other MegaWays releases, is a highly volatile game, so don’t expect wins to occur frequently.
This Shuffle Master release uses the same collapsing reels feature as other games with the engine. However, the game also works a few original features into its gameplay, too. For a start, if the Fu Bat icon appears on the second to fifth reels, it will become a wild symbol. It can also add coins to a pot and trigger a random bonus. In that round, players could land cash prizes of free spins.
If free spins are won, players could start with anything from 10-15 spins, and 2x to 6x multipliers. The bonus can be retriggered, too – which isn’t always the case in these games – while the multiplier increases with every win which occurs.
Where to Play 88 Fortunes: MegaWays This November
88 Fortunes: MegaWays is set to debut this November. Players should be able to find the game at any top casino sites which offer Shuffle Master games. In most cases, these will be powered by SG (Scientific Games) and feature titles from WMS Gaming, Barcrest and Bally Tech, too.
