Vegas Megaquads is an original, innovative, and groundbreaking slot
Can we get everyone’s attention for a moment?
Every time Big Time Gaming releases a new slot, you know something extraordinary will happen. With a new feature.
Now they introduced a new mechanism: the so-called Megaquads slots. The idea is similar to Megaways or Megaclusters, but now with so-called quads.
The game starts with four sets with 4 reels and 4 rows each. The four sets each have 256 ways to win. But if everything goes well, the sets merge (link, connect or integrate) and transform into one colossal set of 8 reels with 8 rows.
That gets you no less than an incredible 16,777,216 ways to win!
Will the new concept be as groundbreaking as Megaways? Time will tell, but it might well be!
It won’t surprise you that the slot also has an enormous win potential.
The max win of Slot Vegas Megaquads slot is an astounding 45,000x the stake.
Yes, with a couple of Euros/Dollars, you can bag close to 100 grand!
Now, if that doesn’t grab your attention, we don’t know what will.

Slot Vegas Megaquads – Gameplay and Features
The game starts with four sets of reels, each with 4 rows of symbols. The win-all-ways principle applies, so all four sets you have 256 (4x4x4x4=256) ways to win.
The high-paying symbols are a Purple Gem followed by a Red, Blue and Green “7”.
The low-paying symbols are the Royals 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
A 4-of-a-kind Purple Jewel is good for 1x the bet. If you get an 8-of-a-kind, the win is 2x.
You might think these small wins won’t do any good. But you’ll find out that with increasing multipliers and almost 17 million ways to win, it can go very fast.
You have two types: Regular Wilds and Rainbow Wilds. These replace all symbols except scatters. But the Rainbow Wild has much more in the tank, which I’ll explain in a minute.
The gold-coloured “VIP” coins are the Scatters.
The main game is more than exciting thanks to increasing multipliers.
You see four symbols on the left side (purple, red, blue and green), each with a multiplier. If you spin a 4-of-a-kind of any of the high-paying symbols, the corresponding multiplier increases by +1. It’s similar to Kingmaker Megaways.
If you land a winning combo of one of the high-paying symbols in the main game, the win multiplies with the corresponding multiplier. Wins can be much more massive, this way!
The multipliers reset, once the free spins are activated.
The Rainbow Wild Bonus
The Rainbow Wild.
If you manage to spin a Rainbow Wild on both of the top 2 sets of reels, both sets merge (connect horizontally). It results in a set of 8 reels and 4 rows, good for 65,536 ways to win (4x4x4x4x4x4x4x4=65,536).
The same can happen with the two sets of reels at the bottom.
How do you get the free spins?
When you spin four scatters (no matter on which set of reels they appear), you activate 6 free spins. Each additional scatter yields an additional 3 free spins. If you do the same during the free spins, you get extra free spins again.
The free spins – the Rainbow Wild Bonus and high start multiplier
The two leftmost sets of reels merge (connect vertically) and the same for the two rightmost sets of reels.
Now, you have two sets of reels (instead of the original four sets), where each set has 4 reels and 8 rows. That gets you 4,096 ways to win per set.
Furthermore, you get a starting multiplier that is equal to the sum of the four accumulated multipliers in the main game.
But the highlight is the Rainbow Wild Bonus Feature. If you manage to spin the Rainbow Wild on both the left and right sets, both sets connect (merge). It gets you playing field (one large set) of 8 reels and 8 rows.
Yes, this implies that you’ve got a blistering 16,777,216 (8x8x8x8x8x8x8x8=16,777,216) ways to win.
Payout Rate (RTP)
The RTP of Slot Vegas Megaquads is an excellent 96.59%.
Vegas slot – the variance (volatility) is high.
The variance of Slot Vegas Megaquads is not published. Given the extraordinary possibilities of this slot (almost 17 million ways to win and increasing multipliers), I expect the variance to be high.
I expect the top wins to be several thousand times the stake. Easily!
Pros and Cons
- Innovative, groundbreaking and original
- A new concept that Big Time Gaming has trademarked.
- It’s an excellent (mathematical) model.
- Insane win potential.
- You need some slots experience. The slot is pretty overwhelming.
- It’s not a game without risk.
- The strange thing is that (just like Kingmaker), you hope you don’t get the free spins soon, as you want the multipliers to increase. It’s somehow counterintuitive.
So, who’ll like the slot? And who won’t?
If you’re into Megaways slots or Megaclusters slots, you will want to try this groundbreaking new mechanism that goes by the name of Megaquads.
