It’s not that long ago I heard about the Megaways™ slots series for the first time. It’s despite the fact that the first Megaways™ video slot was launched in 2016. With Bonanza Megaways™, Big Time Gaming managed to introduce one of the most innovative slots engines available within the industry. 70 Megaways™ titles later, NetEnt couldn’t miss out on the opportunity to become part of the series. With a licence from BGT, NetEnt developed the Twin Spin Megaways™ video slot which is now available at the NetEnt Casinos.
Twin Spin Megaways™ is one of NetEnt’s first Megaways™ titles which means more titles will follow. While the Twin Spin Megaways™ video slot is now available, it won’t take long before Divine Fortune Megaways™ arrives as well. This Megaways™ video slot arrives on the 24th of November. Next in line is Fruit Shop Megaways™ of which the launch date is a mystery still. I’m pretty sure it’ll be at the beginning of next year.
How does the Twin Spin Megaways™ video slot engine works?
If a bit of a NetEnt slots fan, you’ll probably know the Twin Spin™ slot. This game became available in 2013, bringing a simple gameplay. Different from the standard slots, the Twin Spin™ slot offered nothing more than 243 ways to win, a Wild and Twin Reels. Seeing the few slot features, you wonder what it is that made this game so popular with players. That popular even that NetEnt came up with Twin Spin Deluxe™ in 2018 and the Twin Spin Megaways™ video slot in 2020.
I can tell you that the one and only reason for the Twin Spin™ slots to be so popular, is simplicity! The high volatile character of the game definitely helped to convince the experienced players though. However, the Twin Reel feature stole many video slot hearts. Mixed with some Las Vegas excitement and a funky jazz sound, Twin Spin™ became the favourite of many.
The Megaways™ slots engine works rather different from the standard NetEnt slots engine, but the Twin Reels remains the same. Don’t touch what has been a success! NetEnt didn’t, but what they did do, was adding more slot excitement including the Avalanche™ feature and Free Spins.
What makes the real difference in the Twin Spin Megaways™ video slot?
The biggest difference between the original NetEnt slots and the Megaways™ slot is the dynamic outcome. It’s the Megaways™ engine that’s responsible for this outcome with the ways to win reaching up to 117649 Megaways™.
Just like Twin Spin Deluxe™, also the Twin Spin Megaways™ video slot offers 6 reels. However, this time there are between 2 to 7 symbols on the reels. And that’s exactly what makes this video slot so dynamic.
In Twin Spin Megaways™, the iconic Twin Reel feature works perfectly together with NetEnt’s Avalanche™ feature. The number of symbols on the reels is randomly chosen each spin with a maximum of 117649 Megaways™.
So far, it’s the only Twin Spin™ slot with a Free Spins feature with x2 and x3 Wild Multipliers. In a winning combination, the Multipliers increase the number of winning Megaways™, multiplying the wins!
Twin Spin™ video slot (original from 2013)
-RTP of 96.55%
– 243 Ways to Win
– Twin Reel feature
In the original from 2013, NetEnt introduced the Linked reels. It didn’t take long for players to appreciate the Twin Spin™ slot. Besides the Linked Reels, the game offers a Wild as well. That’s it when it comes to the video slot features in the original. However, the very first version offered a 243 ways to win, but how lame does this sound knowing the latest version offers 117649 Megaways™.
Twin Spin Deluxe™ video slot (2018)
-RTP of 96.61%
– Cluster Pays™
– Twin Reel feature
The second addition to the Twin Spin™ slots series arrived at the NetEnt Casinos in 2018 and offers the highest RTP of the three games. The video slot offers a 6×5 layout which comes close to the layout of the latest version.
This time Cluster Pays™ are responsible for the winning combinations instead of winning lines or ways to win. The Cluster Pays™ is a nice addition, but it’s again the Linked Reels that are in the spotlights.
Twin Spin Megaways™ video slot (NEW!)
-RTP of 96.04%
– Twin Reel feature
– Avalanche™ feature
– Free Spins with Wild Multipliers
The Twin Spin Megaways™ video slot brings a layout with 6 reels, but there’s no standard number of rows available. The reason why is that the outcome of a Megaways™ slot is dynamic. A maximum of 117649 Megaways™ are available, but it’s the number of symbols on the reels that decide how many reels there are, but more importantly, how many ways to win.
Each reel shows 2 to 7 symbols and only when all reels show 7 symbols, you reach the maximum number of Megaways™. This is typical for the Megaways™ slots, but new to the series is the Twin Reels feature.
Enjoy the innovation of the popular slots series perfectly combined with the Twin Reel feature, Free Spins and the Avalanche™ feature. Let each spin surprise you while you enjoy the recognizable style of one of NetEnt’s most popular slots. The game is available at all NetEnt Casinos including my favourites Fun Casino and Race Casino.
