Red Tiger’s Pirates’ Plenty MegaWays
Red Tiger has extended its line-up of ocean-going adventure games with the launch of Pirates’ Plenty MegaWays.
The third game in the supplier’s successful series of voyages features the popular MegaWays mechanic under licence from Big Time Gaming and follows the release of Pirates’ Plenty - The Sunken Treasure, and Pirates’ Plenty - Battle for Gold.
“Pirates’ Plenty has been hugely popular with players over the last year and we’re sure the addition of MegaWays to this latest title will further build on the success of this game series,” said Evolution chief product officer Todd Haushalter. “The combination of a proven mechanic with a popular game series is an irresistible one and we’re excited for Pirates’ Plenty MegaWays to be live.”
Big Time Gaming’s Wild Flower
The latest release from Big Time Game is the six-reel slot Wild Flower, which has initially gone live exclusively with Flutter-owned brands via Scientific Games.
Set to the driving rock anthem of the same name by British post-punk rockers The Cult, the game features the new Megascatter bonus system which creates an entire new level of big win potential.
“Fans of high-octane gameplay will love this fast-paced slot which has all the hallmarks of a cult classic,” said SG Digital partnership director Steve Mayes. “This is another great game from Big Time Gaming that features cutting-edge gameplay and the necessary responsible gambling tools that ensures player safety. It’s a real coup for us to have an exclusive of another BTG hit until July 21st on our OpenGaming platform and offer it to our players first via Flutter Group brands before release to the wider network.”
Big Time Gaming CEO Nik Robinson said: “We’re thrilled at the response we’ve been getting from reviewers and operators about this game, but we are never really satisfied until the players tell us they love it. As a thought leader in innovative slots, we obsess about the player experience and how to constantly enhance player enjoyment.”
Scientific Games’ Perfect Potions Megaways
Scientific Games has unveiled its latest slot release Perfect Potions Megaways, featuring expanding reels and a unique twist on the popular mechanic.

“Megaways remains as popular as ever with players, but we’ve pushed the boundaries with our latest magical creation to ensure it stands out from the crowd and offers players a brand-new experience,” said SG Digital content specialist director Rob Procter.
“With the potions dropping through the reels and modifying both the base gameplay and Free Spins, Perfect Potions Megaways is a truly unique way of enjoying the industry’s highly sought-after mechanic. We’re particularly proud of developing such a complex game, which visually looks stunning.”
