- Another crazy slot with up to a million ways to win
- Flashy design lends itself well to the game
- Win potential could be a bit higher
Gold Megaways is an exciting, new game with plenty of bling from Big Time Gaming and it’s taken the Megaways mechanic to the extreme. That’s because they’ve decided the usual 117,649 ways to win isn’t nearly enough, and instead you can get up to a million ways to win here. That’s quite impressive and is doable in the free spins bonus only, as we’ll soon see.
The game looks impressive too, with lots of gold and nice graphics, though it keeps the simplicity that we’ve come to know from BTG. You have 6 reels with a changing number of rows, and the number fo ways to win is shown at the top. You just need a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 9 or 10
- Jack or Queen
- King or Ace

Gold Megaways Slot Bonuses and Features
Reactions. As a Megaways slot, it’s no surprise that this game has reactions. What this means is that winning symbols are removed from the screen to allow new ones to fall in from above, potentially adding another win and creating a reaction.
Wilds. This game also has wild symbols which substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the scatter. In addition to this, some wilds have a 3x multiplier on them, multiplying all wins they are part of by 3x.
Free Spins Bonus. For this you need 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the screen, giving you 12 free spins. Every scatter symbol after this will also give you 4 free spins. Once triggered, you’ll have to spin a wheel and this will determine how many Megaways are active during the bonus. If you land a special BTG coin during the free spins, it will be replaced by 2 new symbols and therefore increase the number of symbols on that row by 2. This can make reels up to 10 symbols high in size. Once this happens, another 8 free spins are given. Furthermore, all wilds that appear on these reels have a 3x multiplier on them.
Gold Megaways slot from Big Time Gaming stands out from its competitors by offering a whopping million ways to win, at least if you do well enough during the bonus. Here, the maximum win potential is just over 20,000x your stake, a large figure but one that I thought would be a bit higher. The way to do this is get as many 10 row reels as possible with lots of multipliers. There’s a lot of potential here for sure, but it is a very volatile game so do bear that in mind before playing. In short, this is another ludicrous slot from Big Time Gaming that some will love, but others simply won’t want to even try. You can find some reviews of other BTG slots here if you’re interested.
