Big Time Gaming license Megaways™ to Gauselmann / Merkur / Blueprint

BTG licences its patented and trademarked MegaWays™ mechanic to fellow supplier in first-of-its-kind partnership. Pioneering online slot developer, Big Time Gaming, has struck a ground-breaking deal to licence its patented and trademarked MegaWays™ mechanic to Blueprint Gaming.


The first-of-its-kind partnership allows Blueprint Gaming (Gauselmann Group) to design and develop its own games using MegaWays™, which debuted in Big Time Gaming’s Dragon Born over two years ago. The latest iteration of MegaWays™ is powering BTG’s latest slot release, Extra Chilli, which has become the most successful LeoVegas launch of all time, smashing all previous KPI's from any provider.

MegaWays™ is a random reel modifier system that allows any given spin to produce a different number of symbols across the reels, allowing players to experience a totally different game with every spin. Big Time Gaming has cornered the market with this innovation with games like Bonanza, White Rabbit and Extra Chilli.

Nik Robinson, Big Time Gaming CEO, said: “This is a ground-breaking partnership that stands testament to the highly innovative and unique mechanics we have developed here at Big Time Gaming. It will be interesting to see how Blueprint utilise this license and we already have a great deal of interest from other leading suppliers in the field wanting to upgrade their offering with MegaWays™. MegaWays™ is a very successful mechanic and we believe it will eventually dwarf the standard 5x3 format of recent years. We are delighted to be able to share it with the Gauselmann Group initially through Blueprint Gaming and we believe this partnership will lay the foundation for similar deals in the future.” 

 Matt Cole, Managing Director at Blueprint Gaming, said: “Big Time Gaming has enjoyed phenomenal success with its latest releases such as White Rabbit and Extra Chilli. A huge part of this is down to the out and out innovations Big Time Gaming has developed in recent years. We are thrilled to have gained access to MegaWays™ and can’t wait to begin incorporating it in the next wave of games we release.”
