Yggdrasil and ReelPlay launch Big Bucks Bandits Megaways
The title has been developed by ReelPlay, the YG Masters studio partner, and drags players to the Wild West in an action-packed duel between gun slingers going after huge bounty. There are approximately 117,649 ways to win in this game, along with many different extra reaction wins that offer prizes of up to 10,000x the bet.
Of those, the ‘Jackpot Heist Respin’ is triggered when 6+ scatter symbols land, hence rewarding three respins. New scatter symbols are held as soon as they appear and the respins count gets reset. Scatter symbols award prizes or jackpots once the respins are completed.
The Double Cross Gamble feature allows players to gamble their winnings to multiply the total win by up to 5x. Players can choose to collect their winnings at any time or gamble to advance to the next multiplier.
Moreover, the Trophy Jackpots feature provides several levels of jackpots, with the largest one being the platinum pot that awards 1,000x the initial bet. This game is now the third official title that has been created via the YG Masters programme. Back in December of 2020, Atlantis Megaways was launched as the first title to be developed through the programme, and was soon to be followed by Giza Infinity Reels which was released quite recently as well.
Additionally, the game uses the company’s cutting-edge GATI technology, which is used by all the YG Masters partners since it allows the developers to use preconfigured, standardised development toolkits that are regulation-friendly and will produce outstanding innovative content.
Head of partner programmes at Yggdrasil Stuart McCarthy commented on the launch saying:
Big Bucks Bandits Megaways offers players great excitement with its proven Western theme, refined game features and massive win potential. Featuring the successful Megaways mechanic, the game is for players who are willing to take risks for a larger reward and is a great addition to our expanding YG Masters portfolio.
ReelPlay CCO David Johnson said:
With this title we are introducing an enhanced Jackpot Respins mechanic which is very popular with land-based players, on top of the Megaways mechanic that has taken the online industry by storm. This is ReelPlay’s third title released through the YG Masters programme in as many months and we are extremely pleased with how quickly we can build and distribute new games. We look forward to developing our partnership with Yggdrasil.
