Don’t make the mistake of considering the company less important because they don’t have a lot of games yet. Its leaders have been working in this industry for a lot of time, and they know how to take the company to the next level.
The history of Big Time Gaming started back in 2011, when it was founded. They’ve managed to create 20+ slot machines since then, so they’re taking their time and putting out games of high quality, especially feature wise. The company has an experienced team leading it, with over 10 years of experience in the industry for each of them. For example, you will find that the CEO worked in the past at Openbet and that he started out in 1996 as a founder of NT Media. The company keeps releasing new games every few months and they have started making them better and better with each one they put out.
Big Time Gaming Casino Games
Big Time Gaming currently offers just 23 or so slot machines to the market, plus several table games. The slot machines include several reactors, along with regular video slots. They tend to create innovative games, which is something that I like a lot about them. As I already mentioned, the games are translated and people that are speaking one of the 20 languages offered will be able to experience them.
Among the games that have been popular, two of them are retro titles, and they’re called Golden Goals and Lucky Streak. They also have several more regular slot machines on offer. Among the more memorable slot machines they offered, I will mention titles like Dragon Born, Starquest, Viking Quest or White Rabbit.
The theme that they usually select for their games will rarely stray too much outside the usual list that other developers will be using. Whether we’re looking at a game about Alice in Wonderland (White Rabbit), Viking warriors (Viking Quest), Las Vegas (Vegas Dreams), Egypt (Queen of Riches) or scary stuff (Haunted House), usually you get stories that are not unique for the industry. If there was one that felt a little bit more unique from their collection, then that would probably be Starquest (space based action with a female hero).
One of the things that I think people enjoy about Big Time Gaming slots is that they innovate a lot. Many of them use mega ways that change in number, big multipliers, 6 reels or mega symbols, among other possible features.
Just as I think that the features are the biggest strength of the BTG slot machines, I also believe that the graphics is where they do worst. Leaving aside the matter of the common themes, which don’t bring anything new in this crowded market, the graphics tend to be of a low quality, often relying on a lot of Royal cards or on gemstones (Starquest is that way, which is a shame since there are a couple of symbols of good quality as well in there). This gets even worse in slot machines that use reels with variable number of symbols, since the game doesn’t have the proportions right when this happens. In the end, it’s both the choice of symbols and the way they design them, that makes their slot machines among the less appealing ones visually. Luckily, they make up for that with features and there is a lot to like in there.
Moving on to the most exciting part of the typical Big Time Gaming slot machine, let’s check out the features. This is where BTG truly shines, and usually you can see it as soon as the slot loads. Whether it’s a retro game like Golden Goals, a reactor type slot like Rocky Reactors, or a 6 reel behemoth with hundreds of thousands of mega ways, they always have something unique to offer.
I’ll take their latest released slot machine as an example, White Rabbit. This particular game gets 5 reels, but they also have others that offer 6 reels (Starquest). The layout of these games will often include a varying number of symbols for each column. You might have 2 symbols on it this round and 7 symbols during the next one. In White Rabbit’s free spins you can even get up to 12 symbols per reel. With so many symbols present, you can have as many as 248,832 ways to win for combinations to form on during White Rabbit.
Feature Drop is an option that allows you to buy features, triggering them in exchange for cash, and it’s another option introduced in White Rabbit. Wild symbols, scatters, free spins, there are all used in most slot machines they offer.
Another favorite of mine is the Wild Multiplier, which some games offer. These multipliers vary in size, sometimes going to 3x, other times to 5x. The best thing is that they multiply each other, and so with two wild reels that have 5x multipliers each, the payout of their combinations is at 25x the usual value.
The paytable in their games will often rely on multipliers applied to the total bet, and they usually don’t get very high. White Rabbit will pay 25x total bet, while Starquest goes to 15x only. They make up with those huge multipliers that I mentioned previously, or with other features, and there is no shortage of them. They even have a couple of progressive jackpot titles to offer.
In terms of RTP, there are some gems in their collection, slot machines that are at about 96-97% (White Rabbit, Viking Quest, Feathered Frenzy, Queen of Riches, etc), but they have some titles that pay less as well, and I’d suggest you steer clear from slots like Haunted House (91.9%) or Lucky Streak (93%).
