Coming to America – BTG’s Big Bad Bison

By Dave Sawyer, Last updated Aug 2, 2023

Two new Megaways™ slots from the Australian games studio Big Time Gaming (BTG) have hit the US market today. Max Megaways™ and Big Bad Bison will make their US debuts in New Jersey, Michigan, Connecticut, and West Virginia via the Evolution Network.

BTG revolutionised the industry when it created the Megaways™ mechanic, a powerful random-reel modifier which changes the number of win ways with every spin to anything up to 117,649. Already big hits in Europe, Max Megaways™ and Big Bad Bison are glorious examples of Megaways™ in action, and now players in the US get to join in the fun.

BTG is known for its innovative mechanics that catapult slot games to new levels of engagement, and these games don’t disappoint.
Max Megaways™ is a glamorous spy caper with a license to thrill. You get play the titular debonair secret agent as he infiltrates an arch supervillain’s remote volcano-island lair. Can you help avert a missile launch that will turn every city in the world into liquid hot magma?

With every base game spin and reaction, you can bag a bonus in the form of Maximum Megaways™, Vertical Wilds, Horizontal Wilds or Wild Bombs. There’s also a Megascatter Enhanced Free Spins feature, where you select three doors into the volcano lair to reveal your Free Spin Bonuses.

Meanwhile, in Big Bad Bison the beauty of the American landscape takes center stage. And it’s all set to an achingly cool Spaghetti Western soundtrack.

Single symbol wilds run through the reels in the base game, adding random multipliers for magnificent wins. Meanwhile, each re-trigger in the Free Spins round will reduce the minimum density by 1, beefing up your game for a rampage of wins to occur.

But you don’t have to wait to hit the bonus round. Press the Bonus Buy icon to purchase 12 Free Spins for 50 times stake and charge straight into the action. Or use Win Exchange™ to gamble your big wins into Free Spins and hopefully some epic wins.

BTG CEO Nik Robinson said: “American players finally get to experience best of BTG games like Max Megaways ™ that have made such a big impact in jurisdictions across the world. We truly believe these games will resonate with US players, especially Big Bad Bison, which is about the natural beauty of America.”

Jeff Millar, Chief Commercial Officer North America at Evolution said: “BTG is hands down one of the most important casino game developers of the past decade and US-based players are about to find out why. Max Megaways™ and Big Bad Bison are packed with features and mechanics that take slots gaming to the next level and change our perception of what a slot can be.”
