Sydney-based developer Big Time Gaming is to launch its new Megaclusters game engine next week, via highly anticipated new release, Star Clusters.

Star Clusters launches exclusively with SG Digital on June 24, before going live later the same day with the Flutter Entertainment group of online casinos, including Paddy Power, Betfair, PokerStars, and SkyVegas.

Commenting on the new mechanic and game, which Big Win Board rated 10/10, Big Time CEO Nik Robinson said: “We believe that Megaclusters is a quite literally a game changer in the online casino space and we’re delighted that it’s received a great reception from reviewers. Expect to see this mechanic feature in more BTG games in the future.”

The team behind Megaways has once again produced an apparently simple concept that is underpinned with new mechanics that can transform the player experience.

With Megaclusters, each symbol that forms part of a winning combo splits into four smaller symbols to create more Megaclusters. When combinations appear within these smaller symbols, they explode, and new ones fall into their place until the combos dry up. As such, the 4×4 grid can evolve into as many as 64 tiles during the Megacluster mode.

Dylan Slaney, SVP Gaming – Digital at Scientific Games, added: “This is an exciting new development that once again brings breakthrough player experiences from our OpenGaming ecosystem.

“What I love about BTG’s games is their ability to redesign a classic by using rich layers of technology to create something diverting and unexpected. That’s really evident in Star Clusters and it’s a thrill to bring the global launch of this new Megaclusters mechanic as an exclusive first on OGS .”
