Max Megaways is a Big Time Gaming slot that revolves around secret agents. Secret agents in movies and books are known for their glamorous lives, where danger is constantly lurking. Just think of James Bond, for example.
We’ve seen quite a few megaways slots and it’s pretty much milked. The last slot that managed to score five stars with us in this genre was Pirate Pays megaways. Fortunately, Max Megaways manages to impress us as well. We played 1000 spins on this slot to tell you our experiences.

So Max Megaways has a secret agent theme. Of course, it is important for secret agents to stay under the radar. Therefore, they also need to be able to “disappear” from time to time. And where better for a secret agent to hide than in a secret hideout in a mountain on a tropical island? No one is going to find you there. That’s what they thought at Big Time Gaming too, as the playing field in Max Megaways is located in the middle of a mountain.
The tropical island is quite small. In the background is the deep blue sea, above which an almost clear blue sky can be seen. We don’t find the design of Max Megaways very special. It all seems a bit static to us.
Max Megaways RTP, Stakes and Variance
Players who are familiar with the Megaways mechanism will understand how the playing field of Max Megaways is constructed. That playing field consists of 6 reels, which each spin consists of a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 7 symbols. Above the “regular” playing field is an additional horizontal row of 4 symbols. All this brings with it a maximum number of ways of 117,649 different ways to win.
The variance of payouts in Max Megaways is very high, while the payout percentage is set at 96.37%. That in itself can be called an excellent percentage. The minimum bet in Max Megaways is $0.20 and the maximum bet is $20 per spin. We would have liked to see wider betting options.
PROs & CONs of Max Megaways
Win up to 139,200 times your stake
Up to 117,649 different ways to win
RTP could vary among casinos
Max Megaways includes a number of great features. First of all, however, it’s important to know that this slot uses the waterfall mechanism. This means that winning symbols are removed from the playing field, after which new symbols fall from the top down to fill the resulting empty positions. These new symbols can trigger the waterfall mechanism again if they produce new winning combinations.
Moving on to the features, of which the 2 different free spins feature are particularly eye-catching. In the base game you have a chance to win various boosters, which can help you win great prizes.
During each spin in the basic game of Max Megaways there is a chance that a wild modifier is activated. These boosters can help you create winning combinations. There are 4 different ones:
Maximum megaways: each reel consists of the maximum number of 7 symbols this spin.
Vertical wild: all symbols on any reel are replaced by wilds.
Horizontal wild: all symbols on the horizontal row above the playing field are replaced by wilds.
Wild bomb: A Wild Bomb is placed on the horizontal row above the playing field. After winning combinations are paid out, all symbols except scatters and Wild Bombs are destroyed and replaced with new symbols.
We do like the gigantic maximum prize of 139,200 times your stake.
Max Megaways Free Spins
The nice thing about Max Megaways is that there are 2 different free spins features. Already
first of all you have the “normal” free spins feature. It is activated when you spin at least 3 golden scatters. You will then get 10 free spins, with each additional gold scatter generating 2 more free spins. Gold scatters can only appear on reels 1 to 5 in the base game.
In addition, you have the enhanced free spins feature. This is triggered when 1 of the triggering scatters is a diamond megascatter. These diamond megascatters only appear on reel 6.
Before the free spins feature of Max Megaways begins, a pick and click game appears on the screen. In this game, you have to click 2 doors, which eventually yield 2 modifiers. In the case of the enhanced free spins feature, you may click 3 doors. These are the following modifiers:
Double multiplier: every time the waterfall mechanism takes place, the multiplier is increased by +2.
Duplicating wilds: each spun wild symbol also turns the symbol below it into a wild.
2 Scatter retrigger: spinning 2 or more scatters during the free spins feature earns additional free spins.
Increased ways: a minimum of 5 symbols land on each reel each spin.
No lower symbols: 9, 10 and J symbols are removed from the game.
Max. Megaways vs. 3 other slots by Big Time Gaming
During the free spins feature a win multiplier is active. This starts at x1 and increases by +1 each time the waterfall mechanism takes place. Furthermore, it is important to know that during the free spins feature, scatters only appear on the horizontal row above the playing area.
If the “2 Scatter Retrigger” modifier is not won, then 3 scatters will deliver 4 additional free spins. Each scatter on top of that delivers an additional 4 free spins.
