After presenting DreamTech’s Labyrinth of Knossos MultiJump on 11 February, Yggdrasil Gaming, the world’s top-ranking publisher of online gaming content, continues to dazzle players around the globe with a new gritty Wild West showdown, called Big Bucks Bandits Megaways.

The development of this joint effort was conducted in partnership with a YG Masters franchisee ReelPlay, whose games already made a significant impact on the iGaming industry. As expected, the latest title in the series brings players to the very frontiers of the Wild West only to prepare them for a nail-biting stand-off duel between gun slingers fighting for big bounties.

From Heist to Double Cross

Big Bucks Bandits Megaways represents the studio’s fourth edition with BTG’s revolutionary mechanic, famous for breathing new life into slots with 117,649 ways to win. However, this western one-armed bandit comes with a string of reaction wins and highlights, offering rewards of up to 10,000x the bet.

Starting with the Jackpot Heist Respin, which is triggered when six or more scatter symbols land anywhere on screen, players can profit from three re-spins. If a new scatter symbol appears during this mode, the respins counter is reset. Upon completion of respins, each scatter symbol awards a prize or even a jackpot!

Then, there is the Double Cross Gamble feature that allows users to double up their winnings and multiply the total win by up to 5x. It is also possible to collect all winnings at any time or continue playing the game of chance to advance to the next multiplier.

Finally, the Trophy Jackpots feature offers multiple jackpot levels with the Platinum pot, awarding 1,000x a player’s bet.



Although it represents the Reel Play’s fourth Megaways title, Big Bucks Bandits Megaways is actually the third release developed through the YG Masters program. It follows the successful launch of Atlantis Megaways in December 2020 as well as the recently published Giza Infinity Reels.

Hypernova Megaways and Odin Infinity Reels featuring Megaways were released in August 2019 and July 2020, respectively.

A Refined Western Theme

By utilizing Yggdrasil’s innovative GATI technology, ReelPlay has built another high-end title for its growing portfolio, allowing players to experience the benefits of new technology standards. Developers employ the aggregator’s preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardized toolkit to produce consistently cutting-edge content.

Thanks to this approach, rapid circulation across Yggdrasil’s distribution network enables all YG Masters partners to scale and fast-track their global growth strategies.

Stuart McCarthy, head of partner programs at Yggdrasil, said:

“Big Bucks Bandits Megaways offers players great excitement with its proven Western theme, refined game features and massive win potential. Featuring the successful Megaways mechanic, the game is for players who are willing to take risks for a larger reward and is a great addition to our expanding YG Masters portfolio.”

David Johnson, CCO at Reel Play, also noted:

“With this title we are introducing an enhanced Jackpot Respins mechanic which is very popular with land-based players, on top of the Megaways mechanic that has taken the online industry by storm.”

Johnson added:

“This is ReelPlay’s third title released through the YG Masters program in as any months and we are extremely pleased with how quickly we can build and distribute new games. We look forward to developing our partnership with Yggdrasil.”
