Big Time Gaming and Relax Gaming have deepened their relationship via the introduction of the Megapays jackpot mechanism, which both confidently assert could turn “one of the greatest slots ever created into one of the best jackpot slots the igaming world has ever seen”.
The global, cross-brand jackpot offers a tiered, linked, progressive jackpot prize system, and promises to deliver frequent millionaire-making opportunities.
Megapays, which aims to offer “something new and exciting to the market whilst also leveraging the popularity of industry classics,” is due to be launched with BTG’s Bonanza slot.
“The result of plenty of research and development, Megapays is no doubt going to be a fantastic engagement tool that will prove to be a hit with players everywhere,” explained Nik Robinson, CEO at BTG.
“Partnering with Relax to launch yet another industry innovation is testament to our positive working relationship. We’re excited to see what our next collaboration will bring.”
This latest agreement and mechanic will bring both classic and new titles into a pooled liquidity system, and build on the IP licences already secured, namely Megaways and Megaclusters.
Simon Hammon, CPO at Relax Gaming, added: “Our latest landmark collaboration with long-time partner BTG is certainly cause to celebrate! Launching our global jackpot system and operations shows growth in product strategy and depth that we’re proud to be sharing with our operators and players alike.
“Driving differentiation is a core value at Relax and this new mechanic is going to allow our talented development team to push the boundaries even further.”
The agreement further cements the partnership between BTG and Relax, which is said to have gone from strength to strength since first joining forces in 2018.
As well as holding IP rights to Megaways and Megaclusters, Relax was also amongst the first three platform providers to distribute BTG’s content in Europe, and launched games, such as The Final Countdown, with extended exclusivity.
