Big Time Gaming (BTG) is one of the most innovative and daring slot studios out there today. Specializing in megaways slots with high volatility and potentially huge payouts, BTG titles certainly appeal to all the high rollers out there. But this Australian-based developer also goes the extra mile to make slots appeal to the mainstream video gamer crowd, with the kind of entertaining mechanics you would expect from a billion-dollar title. Indeed, BTG’s creative team includes former Rock Star Games employees among its number, so if you like a bit of interesting gameplay while spinning those reels, you are going to love this provider. Here are our top 5 BTG slots to get you started.
Most online slots based on TV game shows tend to disappoint both fans of the show and slot players since the theme often seems rather superficial and a bit forced. BTG’s Who Wants to be a Millionaire certainly doesn’t suffer from this problem. Slot fans will enjoy the 117,649 ways to win, and potentially huge payouts. Aficionados of the Chris Tarrant-hosted show will love the Hot Seat Free Spins Gamble feature, where they can select multiple choice answers (just like on the show) and get the chance to win 50,000x their stake. Who Wants to be a Millionaire? is one of the most innovative TV franchise slots out there and is well worth a spin.
The title of this slot may be weird as hell, but this is another highly innovative slot from BTG, and you can see plenty of influence from the video game world. Indeed, it is inspired by an old skool Nintendo game of the same name. The animated hero below the grid is a really nice feature, as he smashes open the treasure chest to send flaming wilds across the reels. Holy Diver is full of features – four in all, with our favourite being the Diamond Retrigger. Here the intrepid hero will collect diamonds to increase your winnings. Holy Diver has a ton of megaways, depending on which level you reach – level 3 offers over half a million ways to win.
This slot is a kind of a weird mash-up between the ‘80s rock anthem of the same name by Swedish group Europe, and the world of rocket launches. But don’t let that put you off. The 6×4 grid gives you 4096 ways to win, and a potential 36,000x your stake if you strike it lucky. Three or more scatter symbols trigger a choice of bonus games. The Countdown Free Spins Bonus gives you 8 free spins, with scatters, wilds and multipliers combing to increase your payouts by up to 256x. If you opt for the Heading for Venus feature, these factors combine to give you multipliers of up to 888x. With those kinds of payouts (and an RTP of 96.65%), you won’t be surprised to learn that The Final Countdown is a high-volatility title – so just make sure your bankroll can stand it.
Every developer has to cover the Ancient Egypt theme, and Book of Gods is BTG’s effort at the genre. It’s really quite a nice slot, with beautiful graphics and a subtle Middle Eastern musical score. The symbols feature various Egyptian deities, with the purple god being the most valuable, and the book symbol acting as both the wild and the scatter. Three of those will trigger the free spins bonus round, which can also be bought at any time. As a nice touch, the price of this bonus feature varies, with this value displayed on the Feature Drop button. It’s worth keeping an eye on that value so you can buy the bonus round when it’s going cheap. Unlike most BTG titles, Age of Gods is fairly low variance, making it perfect for a relaxing evening of slot fun.
Kingmaker is another of BTG’s megaways slots, and this one will appeal to those who have the patience to sit through insanely high levels of volatility and aim for those mega wins. The autoplay button may have been invented for games like this, but the design, musical score and general feel of Kingmaker certainly make you feel like a medieval monarch as you sit on your throne and watch the reels get spun for you. The base game has a backdrop of a fairy-tale castle, with symbols including various gems and crowns, while the free spins game takes place in a cellar covered in gold coins. Those free spins could turn out to be very lucrative indeed, with 10,000x your stake potentially on offer. But what is clever about Kingmaker is that the multipliers are earned in the base game, have no limit, and are reset at the end of each free spins feature. That means you will want to build as high a multiplier count as possible before triggering the feature, making the base game rather exciting in its own right.
BTG continues to make a name for itself in the slot world, and we can’t wait to see what else this studio comes up with next. What is your favourite BTG title?
