Megaclusters mechanic set to debut in Big Time Gaming's new slot Star Clusters
Australian developers Big Time Gaming, the company behind the iconic Megaways mechanic are gearing up to blow the casino world away once again with their latest creation, Megaclusters.
The Megaclusters mechanic will be implemented into their latest release Star Clusters, a brand new Bejewelled inspired game set to come out on the 24th June exclusively on SG Digital's platform, before making its way onto popular no wagering casinos such as Paddy Power, PlayOJO and Videoslots in the not so distant future.
What is the Megaclusters mechanic?
Whilst the Megaclusters concept sounds daunting, it's actually an incredibly simple (and exciting) mechanic! In the case of Star Clusters, the game starts on a 4x4 grid with 16 tiles and grows significantly (up to 64 tiles) as the game progresses spin after spin.
Each symbol that forms part of a winning combo will automatically split into four smaller symbols to create a Megacluster. When combinations appear within these smaller symbols they'll explode, winning the player cash!
New symbols then fall into their place in a cascading manner until all of the possible winning combinations are gone.
Don't expect Star Clusters to be the first and only game come out that utilises this new mechanic, it's already been announced that it will be licensed out to developers that wish to utilise it in their own games, much like the Megaways mechanic.
Big Time Gaming CEO hypes revolutionary mechanic
Speaking about the release of both Star Clusters and the Megaclusters mechanic Big Time CEO Nik Robinson proudly said: “We believe that Megaclusters is a quite literally a game changer in the online casino space and we’re delighted that it’s received a great reception from reviewers! Expect to see this mechanic feature in more Big Time Gaming games in the future.”
