Licensing the Megaways mechanism from creators Big Time Gaming, Quickspin has taken one of its enduring classic slots and given it a whole new lease of life. 

Nik Robinson CEO & Founder Big Time Gaming: “Big Bad Wolf Megaways™ is such a fantastic Megaways™ game. When Quickspin first brought Big Bad Wolf to market in the early days of both our companies, it was an impressive production, both mathematically and graphically. I’m glad that Quickspin has kept that attention to detail in the Megaways™ version, and I wish Quickspin the best of luck with the upcoming launch!”

Daniel Lindberg, CEO & Founder Quickspin, said: “Nik’s mechanic along with the game design and narrative of our classic Big Bad Wolf is a perfect fit. I feel very confident in this game, and I’m very proud of the Quickspin team for pulling this together in such an excellent manner.”

Bought out by Playtech in 2016, Quickspin has enjoyed a resurgence of popularity in recent years. It makes perfect sense that the developer’s first foray into Megaways Slots would come courtesy of one of its most popular titles. 

Released in 2013, the original Big Bad Wolf slot was a huge hit, winning EGR’s ‘Game of the Year’ award in the year of its release.  A Christmas special followed in 2020, proving that there was still an appetite for more Big Bad Wolf (and the little pigs, naturally).

Megaways Slots were initially developed by Big Time Gaming but have since been licenced 
to several other carefully chosen game developers. A form of video slots, Megaways games use six reels that can accommodate two-seven symbols apiece. An additional horizontal reel is sometimes included, allowing for another four symbols. At their full capacity, with seven symbols on each reel, Megaways slots offer up to 117,649 ways to win. Sometimes, such as with an additional reel, it can be even more. Players can therefore look forward to landing many more small wins. 

That is not the only feature that makes Megaways slots special. Just as in other video slots, you can also find features including unlimited multipliers, free spins, tumbling reels, and bonus games.

Like Big Bad Wolf Megaways, the success of a Megaways slot depends on the strengths of the original game or the new slot itself and how the Megaways mechanism is incorporated into the existing game or a new theme. If the game isn’t strong, simply turning it into a Megaways slot is unlikely to make up for other deficiencies but, with a well-made entertaining slot, the Megaways mechanic can turn it into something truly special.

Big Bad Wolf Megaways is a brilliant example of how the Megaways mechanism can take an already excellent game and elevate it to a whole new level. We look forward to seeing whether Quickspin’s other chosen Megaways titles can also work so beautifully together.
