US – Scientific Games releases its ‘flagship’ iGaming slot for 2021By Lewis - 10 June 2021
Scientific Games has gone live with its flagship 2021 iGaming release Invaders Megaways, a space-themed title with a feature on every spin and a unique ‘Uni-Cow’ experience.
The summer’s slot has launched exclusively with 888casino and will go on general release through Scientific Games’ OpenGaming platform from June 15.
Rob Procter, Content Specialist Director, Digital at Scientific Games, explained: “While a new Megaways release is guaranteed to cause a buzz, in the case of Invaders Megaways we have set new standards in terms of both presentation and gameplay to produce a fresh, exciting new playing experience.
“Having a feature on every spin in the base game adds variety and appeal and we are proud of developing a game that looks as good as this does while also making the very most of the Megaways mechanic. The Uni-Cow feature also adds a whole new level of appeal and we can’t wait to see player reactions when it drops.”
With a retro style that takes inspiration from the company’s Invaders from the Planet Moolah slot, the new game incorporates the Megaways mechanic in a unique way.
The six-reel slot features a UFO landing on each spin to select a random symbol to turn wild when landing on reels two to five.
When a player hits four or more scatter symbols to win free spins, a random picture symbol is selected to act as a wild for the entire round. Each has its own modifier, ranging from expanding wilds to increased Megaways.
The Uni-Cow’s appearance in the base game results in all reels showing between seven and 10 symbols and up to 1,000,000 Megaways.
The release of Invaders Megaways adds to the company’s portfolio of games incorporating the mechanic, with Jin Ji Bao Xi the next title to receive the Megaways treatment in July.
Talya Benyamini, VP B2C Casino at 888, said: “Our customers enjoy having access to exclusive games on our platform, and it has been great to offer the opportunity to experience the excitement that comes from playing Invaders Megaways.
“We have a really strong relationship with Scientific Games, and this game is another example of bringing high quality content to our players.”
