Coming new from Microgaming in January this year is the studio’s first ever Megaways online slot following the November 2020 inking of a brand distribution deal between the industry leader and Megaways creator and product owner, Big Time Gaming. Shamrock Holmes Megaways is anticipated be the first of many more Megaways-branded online slots due for development and release by Microgaming. The industry giant already at the time of the initial big-brand announcement revealed that several more titles featuring the mechanic were officially in the pre-release pipeline. 

The iGaming titan has also confirmed that the agreement with Big Time Gaming authorises it to mandate its network of independent iGaming studios to include the mechanic in their own future iGaming titles also. This is big news for the industry as it implies a steady stream of Megaways online slots being about to enter the market in the very near future.

Special Bonus Features

Shamrock Holmes Megaways is based on a standard 6-reel setup boosted by Megaways’ typical 117,649 Ways to Win. Special symbols and bonus features other than the actual Megaways winning-ways mechanic include Rolling Reels, a Free Spins round, Unlimited Multipliers, and phenomenal payouts of up to 28,000x the base-game bet wagered.

The betting range starts out at $0.20 for a spin, while escalating to $20 at the top of the allowable range. Since the top jackpot reaches all the way to 28,000x the base-game bet, this means that players could potentially bank winnings equal to a life-changing $560,000 during a single online gaming session.

Unlimited Multipliers & More

The inclusion of Unlimited Multipliers combined with the 96.44 Return-to-Player rating in Shamrock Holmes Megaways only serves to boost the win potential by even more. Unlimited Multipliers refer to Multipliers that literally have no upper limit. This means that given a specific set of circumstances, Multipliers simply keep increasing with every repeat of the qualifying condition or conditions. The winning potential created by this special bonus feature alone is a truly remarkable inclusion in its own right.

Since the online slot is rated high volatility, it’s probably better suited to players with a bankroll able to sustain a reasonable number of spins at a bet increment that is higher than the average casual bet wagered. The true magic of high volatility slots only really reach maximum potential when spins are powered by bigger bets.

This however does not mean that Microgaming’s inaugural Megaways release is in any way lost to players managing conservatively sized bankrolls. In fact, the exact opposite has been proven to be true. It’s only that more caution and care would be required when matching a conservative bankroll with a game categorised as highly volatile.

About Megaways

How the Megaways mechanic works is that it essentially releases on a randomised symbol selection system. This means that the number of symbols set to appear on each of the 6 reels are selected at random – with anywhere between 2 and 7 symbols active and in play at any given time. Once a round happens to be populated by the full selection of 7 symbols, all 117,649 Ways to Win will become activated.

Notable too is that Wild symbols – in the case of Shamrock Holmes Megaways represented by the “W” symbol - will only ever appear on the horizontal reel placed on top of the four columns located in the middle of the game area.

A superb highlight feature of Shamrock Holmes Megaways is the Magic Forest Re-Spins bonus game. Once activated by three or more Scatters landed simultaneously, the special Re-Spins feature is the real key to unlocking a set number of Megaways – 10,000, 32,400, or 117,649.

This new release looks to be a potentially rewarding online slot that Canadian players are sure to love!
