Yggdrasil Gaming has added yet another new online slot to its growing games portfolio after launching Big Bucks Bandits Megaways, the third title from Australian developer ReelPlay released via its YG Masters program.
Utilizing the uber-popular Megaways game engine under license from Big Time Gaming (BTG) the 6-reel Western-themed title comes complete with the same enhanced Jackpot Respins mechanic that is so popular with land-based casino players.
Providing up to 117,649 ways to win, Big Bucks Bandits Megaways while hitting a winner at any time brings additional reaction wins and features that offer rewards of up to 10,000 times the stake.
Landing at least six money bags scatter symbols triggers the Jackpot Heist Respin feature, which locks the scatters into place. Three respins are rewarded to begin the round and they reset whenever a new money bag or trophy symbol appears on the reels. Upon completion of the respins feature, players are awarded a prize of a jackpot for each scatter symbol.
At the conclusion of Jackpot Respins, the total prize is added up and the Double Cross Gamble feature begins, where players are able to collect their winnings at any time or choose to gamble their winnings for a chance at increasing the prize by up to 5x the original value.
Multiple jackpots levels are offered via the Trophy Jackpots feature, with the lucrative Platinum pot awarding 1,000 times the original stake.
Commenting on the new game and the firm’s ongoing partnership, Chief Commerical Officer for ReelPlay, David Johnson said…
“With this title we are introducing an enhanced Jackpot Respins mechanic which is very popular with land-based players, on top of the Megaways™ mechanic that has taken the online industry by storm.
“This is ReelPlay’s third title released through the YG Masters program in as any months and we are extremely pleased with how quickly we can build and distribute new games. We look forward to developing our partnership with Yggdrasil.”
Developed through the YG Masters program and built using Yggdrasil’s innovative GATI technology, the new title follows the successful December release, Atlantis Megaways, along with the most recent release, Giza Infinity Reels.
Powering both YG Franchise and the YG Masters program, “the preconfigured, regulation-ready development toolkit enables partners to build and deploy faster globally.”
In a company press release, Head of Partner Programs for Yggdrasil Gaming, Stuart McCarthy, had this to say about the new launch…
“Big Bucks Bandits Megaways™ offers players great excitement with its proven Western theme, refined game features and massive win potential.
“Featuring the successful Megaways™ mechanic, the game is for players who are willing to take risks for a larger reward and is a great addition to our expanding YG Masters portfolio.”
Players can look forward to the Riga-headquartered company dropping its next new title TikiPop on February 22. The high volatility game is from the popular PopWins series from independent developer Avatar UX.
