SG GAMING MEGAWAYS™ SLOTS
Scientific Games isn’t one single developer of online casino
games, but a company which encompasses many brands. Launched in 1974,
Scientific Games originally produced lottery-style gambling games, along the
lines of video bingo and basic slots. However, in more recent times, they have
snapped up some of the most recognisable brands around and focused on online
In 2012, SG snapped up Barcrest, linking them with their
BallyTech, Shuffle Master and WMS Gaming brands. In 2018, the UK Gambling
Commission licensed provider went one further and acquired the NYX Gaming Group
Limited, which includes NYX Interactive and NextGen Gaming. Now, all those
brands operate under the Scientific Games umbrella.
The year 2019 has proven to be just as eventful for
Scientific Games. In early May 2019, SG announced that they had agreed to a
deal with Big Time Gaming, for the use of the Australian casino software
provider’s Megaways™ gaming engine. SG now joins the likes of Blueprint Gaming,
iSoftBet and Red Tiger Gaming (who were recently acquired by NetEnt), as well
as other developers in using the engine.
The first Scientific Games slot to feature the Megaways™ engine
was NextGen Gaming’s flagship slot Medusa. Medusa Megaways™ incorporates much
of the same gaming action that the original slot offered up, albeit wrapped up
in the collapsing reels and multiplier mad Megaways™ format that players love.
Since then, Barcrest and other developers operating under the SG banner have
also unveiled Megaways™ releases. These include such games as Rainbow Riches Megaways™ and Raging Rhino Megaways™, from Barcrest and WMS Gaming,

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON SG GAMING
There are very few common traits amongst the games unveiled by
Scientific Games. Barcrest, NextGen Gaming, BallyTech, WMS Gaming and others
under their banner all tend to produce entirely different slots. As such, the
array of special features and themes found in these games tends to vary. For
instance, slots from Barcrest, BallyTech and WMS Gaming slots tend to feature
highly volatile gameplay. Those from NextGen Gaming tend to offer a medium to
low variance gaming experience to players.
By offering quite a varied selection of games from the
numerous providers under their ownership, SG can cater to seemingly all
players, irrespective of their preferences. There is one unifying trait common
to almost all the games under their flag, though. Practically all games
developed by any of Scientific Games’ subsidiaries tend to offer a realistic,
land-based style gaming experience. In the case of WMS Gaming (for instance),
most of their slot releases can also be found in brick-and-mortar casinos
across the globe. However, when it comes to Megaways™ slots, they are exclusively
an online set of games.
While very few Scientific Games’ slots tend to feature
progressive jackpots, there are still ample prizes to be won in those releases.
Their games tend to feature unique gaming structures, such as an unusual number
of reels, as well as reels of different heights. Some contain colossal symbols
which can transfer from one reel set to another, as found in WMS slots. Oddly
enough, it is only with their array of Megaways™ slots that Scientific Games’
titles tend to have similar features.
Like most Megaways™ games, those under the SG banner feature
collapsing reels/symbols, mystery icons, free spins with increasing and
uncapped multipliers, as well as the potential to play with as many as 117,649
paylines, prizes tend to be more lavish in SG Megaways™ games than in their
usual offering, too. The current leading Scientific Games Megaways™ slots available
include Battleship Direct Hit, Medusa, Raging Rhino, Rainbow Riches and 88 Fortunes Megaways™.
SG GAMING MEGAWAYS™ SLOTS FINAL THOUGHTS
It could be argued that the jury is still out on how popular the Megaways™ titles are in the SG Gaming catalogue, but they have a lot of classic slots to transform through the use of the Megaways™ mechanic so they have every chance of hitting success with their loyal fans.
SG as a company have joined forces with Big Time Gaming to try and gain a foothold in the growing US market, in particular New Jersey. Through the use of SG Gaming's impressive OGS platform, BTG are now providing NJ with their first taste of Megaways™ Slots, and this comes in the form of Bonanza Megaways™. The Golden Nugget Casino have gained exclusivity to these releases, and it looks an exciting time to be a player stateside.
