UK – iSoftBet announces first slot with Megaways mechanicBy William - 12 December 2019
iSoftBet is inviting slot fans to join them on an adventure in search of hidden treasures in Aztec Gold Megaways, the first iSoftBet title to feature the gaming mechanic.
The 6-reel slot, set deep in the rainforests of Central America, features Megaways action with cascading wins, where all winning symbols explode to allow more symbols to drop onto the reels, and a maximum of seven symbols possible on each reel, resulting in up to 117,649 ways. The top-paying Montezuma symbol is joined on the reels by the jaguar, snake and eagle as well as golden royals, giving the game a rich, vibrant feel. The Sun Disc Scatter symbols are most sought after, as any five or more in view will trigger the Aztec Gold Cash Respins.
During the feature, the number of Megaways is fixed and three respins are granted, while every new Sun Disc that lands will reset the respins. Fill an entire reel with Sun Disc symbols and all the values on that reel will be multiplied by the number of spaces on the reel. To add to the excitement, Aztec Gold also features a random “Max Megaways” modifier in the base game, where all reels are guaranteed to land with seven symbols, as well as Jackpot values of up to 1000x during the Cash Respins.
Michael Probert, Chief Commercial Officer at iSoftBet, explained the rationale behind introducing the Megaways mechanic into its games: “The hugely popular Megaways mechanic has been one of the most important innovations in our industry, and we are thrilled to be bringing our own title to this market with the release of Aztec Gold Megaways.
“Essentially, we wanted to stay true to the genre, with cascading wins and up to seven symbols per reel, but have added a Cash Spins bonus, which we feel gives the game a unique edge. This will be the first of many Megaways titles from iSoftBet, and we look forward to showcasing more of our exclusive content across our tier one regulated market partners in 2020 and beyond.”
