Big Time Gaming licenses MegaWays™ to iSoftBet
iSoftBet to use BTG’s patented and trademarked mechanic in future slot releases as innovative supplier continues to sign big-name IP deals
Big Time Gaming, the innovative game developer behind chart-topping titles Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? and Bonanza, has penned an agreement to share its patented and trademarked MegaWays™ mechanic with iSoftBet.
The deal means that iSoftBet can use MegaWays™ in its original and branded titles to provide its players with the same thrilling and exciting experience offered through Big Time Gaming’s proprietary slots.
MegaWays™ is a random reel modifier system that sees any given spin produce a different number of symbols across the reels, allowing players to experience a totally different game with every spin. The mechanic debuted in BTG’s Dragon Born four years ago.
Big Time Gaming has cornered the market with this innovation with games like Bonanza, White Rabbit and Extra Chilli, and it also features in its recently-launched Who Wants to be a Millionaire? title which has gone on to become the most successful branded slot of all time.
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, said: “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.”
