Australian online video slot developer, Big Time Gaming (BTG), has announced the signing of a deal that has seen it license its patented MegaWays mechanic to independent digital land-based gaming solutions innovator, Storm Gaming Technology Limited.

Random reel modifier advance:

The Sydney-based firm used an official Tuesday press release to explain that it premiered the MegaWays innovation as part of its Dragon Born title some three years ago while the latest agreement is due to allow Storm Gaming to design and develop its own games featuring the random reel modifier system.

Innovation to be integrated into brand licenses:

The slot developer stated that the arrangement will also permit its British partner to integrate the MegaWays advance into a selection of its own brand licenses such as the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, The Chase and Tipping Point video slots in order to ‘deliver a superior player experience.’

Nik Robinson, Chief Executive Officer for Big Time Gaming, declared that he was ‘looking forward’ to seeing how Storm Gaming Technology Limited utilizes the MegaWays mechanic as it already ‘has some highly entertaining IP licenses’ that will work well with the innovation.

Aficionados can enjoy ‘a totally different game’:

BTG detailed that its MegaWays system allows online video slots to generate a random number of symbols across their reels in order to give aficionados the ability ‘to experience a totally different game with every spin.’ It proclaimed that the innovation is already a part of games such as White Rabbit, Extra Chilli and Bonanza and is to be included within the Who Wants to be a Millionaire title that is set to launch in November.

Takes gameplay to ‘a whole new level’:

For his part, Steve Murray from Wolverhampton-headquartered Storm Gaming, described the MegaWays innovation as ‘remarkable’ because it delivers ‘a whole new level’ of gameplay. He stated that his firm intends to utilize the advance in its new licensed and original games including a number that are due to be premiered in ‘the coming months’.
