FEATURE DROP™ SLOTS & FEATURE BUY SLOTS
FEATURE DROP SLOTS & FEATURE BUY MEGAWAYS SLOTS
In 2017 Big Time Gaming released a Megaways™ slot by the name of White Rabbit that would add a new dimension to the current online slot market. This new Alice in Wonderland themed slot would include BTG's trademarked feature drop™, this new addition to their latest slot would enable players to initiate the free spins bonus round without having to trigger it in the normal fashion on the base game, this would also begin the rise of the bonus buy slots, where players would be presented with the opportunity to buy the bonus on a slot machine for a fixed amount multiple of their stake.
Feature activation therefore could be done in two ways. Firstly you could simply go to the buy option underneath the feature drop and purchase the bonus round for the cost of 100x your stake, this would take that amount from your balance, the reels would spin, and the scatter symbols to start the feature would drop in.
THE FEATURE BUY PRICE ON WHITE RABBIT MEGAWAYS™ IS 100X YOUR STAKE
Secondly you could collect special BTG coins that would land on the reels at random intervals during your play on the base game, these coins vary in size, and depending upon their size different cash amounts would be reduced from the feature drop™ price. Eventually the buy price would reach zero and once that happens the bonus round will automatically drop in on the next spin, you would also have the option to collect coins to reduce the amount of the feature buy to a value you felt comfortable at buying the bonus for.
BTG COINS LANDING ON THE REELS WILL HELP TO REDUCE THE COST OF PURCHASING THE BONUS FEATURE

As of 2018 Big Time Gaming licensed out the Megaways™ pay mechanic to several other slot providers, this has obviously seen a far greater amount of the Megaways™ slots hitting the online market. BTG have however held on to their trademarked Feature Drop™, so any other Megaways™ slots or feature buy slots from other providers will not have the base game capability of reducing the cost to trigger the feature, this will be a set amount depending upon which slot you choose to play.

YOU ARE ABLE TO GAMBLE YOUR FREE SPINS ON EXTRA CHILLI MEGAWAYS™ AFTER BUYING THE BONUS
Being the innovative slot developer that Big Time Gaming are, when they released Extra Chilli Megaways™ in 2018 they decided to elaborate on the feature trigger itself, which in turn plays a huge part in how the feature drop™ on Extra Chilli and buying the bonus works for the player.
Once the feature was triggered, whether that be through normal gameplay or by purchasing the bonus, you are offered the opportunity to gamble the amount of free spins that you have. This gives you, the player, a direct chance to alter the volatility of your feature, the downside to this is that if you lose either of the first two gambles from a basic 3 scatter trigger, then the feature will be over before a single spin has even taken place.
VIKINGS UNLEASHED MEGAWAYS™ OFFERS YOU THE CHANCE TO GAMBLE YOUR SPINS AND MULTIPLIER AMOUNT
As these slots continue to develop and the software providers that now have the Megaways™ Mechanic at their disposal look to add their own twist to these slots, we have seen various adaptations to the feature gamble, and the release of Vikings Unleashed Megaways™ saw the option of not only gambling your free spins made available to players, but the chance to gamble your starting multiplier as well.
This again presents the player with an opportunity to change the volatility of the bonus round, but as with Extra Chilli Megaways™ if you get too greedy you can end up losing everything and never seeing your free spins bonus round begin at all.
FEATURE DROP™ - bonus buy SLOTS FINAL THOUGHTS
Feature drops if used correctly can be an added extra to your gameplay, and present you with a bonus round that you wouldn't have maybe got during normal play. Being patient and collecting the coins on the Big Time Gaming slots will, as I already mentioned, bring the feature buy price to zero, and this is how we would recommend that you play these slots.
Purchasing the feature on slots where you can buy the bonus can potentially be a slippery slope, and we would always urge players to have deposit limits in place at any online casino that they are registered at.
Once you move away from the BTG slots and the feature drop™ is no longer available, there could certainly be some temptation to trigger the bonus yourself rather than to play for it as you normally would, be very cautious if you do decide to go down this road and make the most of the free play modes that we offer, this will give you the chance to see how brutal some of the gambles can be, and how quickly you can burn through your money.
UKGC BANS BONUS BUY FOR UK PLAYERS
October 2019 saw the UK Gambling commission request online casinos to remove the ability for UK players to buy the bonus on a slot machine. The bonus buy has long been debated as to whether it encourages irresponsible gambling, and the regulator for the UK has finally decided to call time on the controversial feature buy option.
So now that bonus buys are banned UK players will have to revert to the traditional method of triggering a free spin bonus on a slot machine. It should however be said that not all online casinos offered the option to buy a bonus from the onset, many decided to take the approach of leaving this option out, perhaps envisaging there would be intervention from the regulator further down the line which has proven to be the case.
Currently players from outside of the UK are still able to buy the feature on those slots that offer this option, and time will tell if their own regulators will follow the UKGC's lead and impose a ban.
