Slot Vegas Megaquads is combining the flashy gambling capital of the world with a gigantic reel set that can reach over 16 million ways to win.

Slot Vegas Megaquads is a composite video slot consisting of four separate 4×4 reel sets, each with 256 ways to win as default. Basically, four games in one. The set-up and number of ways will change up to an 8×8 size and an insane 16,777,216 ways during various features in the gameplay (more to that shortly). Wins are paid for three and four matching symbols on adjacent reels on each 4×4 grid, and that from left to right only, as well as for five to eight symbols when the grids are merged. You can revisit Sin City on desktop and mobile from 0.20 to 20 credits per spin. The game has medium to high volatility with an RTP of 96.59%.
Big Time Gaming opted for a 70s Vegas background with low rise hotels and casinos at dusk instead of the flashy sight of today’s strip. It will all light up with the usual light shows during the free spins feature. The square game grid is taking up most of the screen with a flashing street sign on the side displaying the premium multipliers.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the BTG usual card royals from 9 through to A, awarding 0.05x to 0.2x your bet for a single four of a kind as well as 0.25x to 0.35x for an 8-of-a-kind when two reel sets are combined during the gameplay. No pays are available for 3-of-a-kind royals. The premiums are also very typical for BTG colours – green, blue and red lucky 7s are joined by a purple diamond. Four or eight across the reels will yield 0.3x to 1x and 0.7x to 2x your stake respectively. The game has two star wilds, the regular appears on reels two, three and four of each reel set while the rainbow wild can land on the two centre reels only. Both substitute for all regular pay symbols. A golden VIP coin acts as the scatter.
Slot Vegas Megaquads Slot Features
We barely got accustomed to the newly introduced Megaclusters mechanic on Star Clusters, only for the folks at Big Time Gaming to present us right away with their next ambitious creation. And it is very different from anything we have seen so far, even on standard or Megaways quad slots. So different, that we will dedicate one paragraph to the workings of the Megaquads mechanic.
As a default, you are looking at four 4×4 slots, each with 256 ways to win. Each spins independently and wins are paid accordingly as they land on a reel set. In the base game, the mayhem starts when Rainbow Wilds land on two horizontally adjacent slots. Before any wins are paid, the two grids are combined to an 8×4 size with 65,536 ways. Plus, a regular wild is added to a random position on reels four and five. Any 5, 6, 7 and 8-of a kind diamonds or lucky 7s landing on this spin will increment the symbol multiplier by x2, x3, x4 and x5 respectively. It gets crazier during the free spins feature (more to that shortly). The reel sets will change back to the default before the next spin.
You might have baulked just like we did at the rather low symbol pays, peaking at a mere 2x your bet for the purple diamonds. One reason for that are the symbol multipliers for the premiums which are displayed to the left of the game screen (desktop). They start at x1 for each of the three lucky 7s and the purple diamond. Any four of a kind landing on a spin will increase the respective multiplier by x1, no limits. Plus, any extra multipliers from the Rainbow Wilds feature. Note, that in the base game each multiplier is only applied to winning combinations of the corresponding premium symbol.
Hitting four scatters anywhere across all four reel sets will trigger 6 Free Spins. Any further landing on the same spin will add +3 spins to the tally. Unlimited retriggers are available with the same combinations. Before the round starts, the two left and the two right 4×4 grids are combined vertically into 4-reel slots with 8 rows, giving each side 4,096 ways to win. The symbol multipliers from the base game are added into a common win multiplier, which will be applied to all wins for the duration of the feature. Not only that, but it will further increase by x1 for every 4-of-a-kind lucky 7s or diamonds landing on a free spin, no limits.
And that’s not the end yet. Triggering the Rainbow Wild Bonus on a free spin will combine all sets into one giant 8×8 game window with a massive 16,777,216 ways to win for the current free spin and two random wilds are placed again on reel four and five. Not to forget, the round multiplier will be applied to any winnings, making this best moment to hit mega wins of up to a purported 45,000 times your bet.
Well, it seems like the people at Big Time Gaming are in innovation overdrive. Two new mechanics in two consecutive games is a testament to their sheer creativity and capabilities. The underlying maths working behind the scenes of the Megaquads is probably one of the most complex to have been used in a slot. Although some elements are borrowed from Kingmaker Megaways, doing the same times four is a whole different level. Kudos to the team for having the guts to take on such a challenge. One question remains though as to who came up with the name. Slot Vegas is surely not your ordinary title for a video slot. But then, the gameplay and entertainment value are more important than that.
Slot Vegas Megaquads will again divide the player community as it is another collection-based slot. Typically, we are over the moon when we trigger the main feature within the first few spins but that is not what you want on this game. You will need to accumulate decent symbol multipliers before going into the free spins as they will be added and applied to all wins from the round. Due to the very low line pays, a high win multiplier will be dearly needed to score those mega wins. Especially, because the maximum configuration with over 16 million ways, which will be the source of most monster hits, will not occur in each feature.
