Megaways Casino is a the new name for StarSpins. The latter launched in 2014 on the Gamesys platform (i.e Jackpotjoy) but the powers that be decided that an official Megaways branded site was the best way to go. StarSpins was basically Jackpotjoy without bingo but it did at least have Community Jackpots that acted as a unique feature. Unique at least until they were picked up by Monopoly Casino on the same platform. Sadly those jackpots are gone and instead we have a site dedicated to the growing cult of Megaways. These slots have become incredibly popular and the multi win line engine has been applied to a number of top slot titles.
Megaways Casino Welcome Bonus
New players to Megaways Casino are offered 30 free spins as a welcome bonus. To claim the bonus you need to register, deposit and spend £10 on any games. If you select the spins then you will receive 30 free spins (1p coin size, maximum lines) for the game Secret Of The Phoenix or Doubly Bubbly. Megaways Casino pays any wins generated from these bonus spins as real cash. Withdrawal terms will apply.
Free Daily Game
Depositing players also can play a choice of one free game per week – choose from Daily Paper, Daily Rainbows, Doubly Bubbly, Search For The Phoenix. Just login and select the squares to reveal symbols. Get enough of these symbols and you’re in line for a cash prize or some free spins on the related slot. If you remember – which we often don’t – you can also play another free game at the end of the month based on how frequent you’ve played the daily games. Don’t expect to win too often with this free to play game.
Play Slots At Megaways Casino
Megaways Casino is all about the slots and more importantly those Megaways titles. When we first learnt that StarSpins was to become Megaways Casino we anticipated that the site would have more of these games than any other brand. At time of writing there’s about 40 to 50 of them but look on any other casino and slot site you’ll not going to be too far off that number. Featured titles include Bonanza, Royal Mint, Extra Chilli, Fishin’ Frenzy, Tiki Totems, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Fluffy Favourites, Reel King and Gonzo’s Quest. One big plus point for Megaways Casino is that it does allow you to play these games for free in demo mode. That’s a great way to get to try before you buy.
Daily Drop Jackpots
As well as the Megaways you can also play other slots, daily drop jackpots, progressives and live casino games such as Crazy Time. The format of the site is perfect for mobile, tablet and desktop users although we do find the lack of organisation frustrating. For example the slots are arranged by top games, featured games, slingo and then everything else. We’d like to see some organisation by paylines, provider and volatility.
Player Promotions At Megaways Casino
As mentioned at the start The Community Jackpots from StarSpins have gone which is a great shame. The daily free to play game remains though but why isn’t there a Megaways version? Other promotions are limited although at time of writing (March 2021) you could win up to £200 a day spinning The Big Wheel or try Fruit Inferno for the chance to win Box Bonanza games. If you play at Jackpotjoy then Box Bonanza games will be familiar to you as these prizes are a way of awarding bonuses. In our view there are better player promotions usually running on Virgin Games, Heart and Jackpotjoy. You can however follow them for more news via Facebook.
Responsible Gambling is a top priority at Megaways Casino and they have a number of useful tools to assist players. There’s even a video to explain them! Amongst the tools you’ll find deposit limits, session reminders, account cool-off and self-exclusion. If you choose to self exclude from this site, then this will close all your accounts across the Gamesys Group. Online support is initially through a support/FAQ system which is OK but once you locate a contact us page then a live chat, contact telephone numnber and email address are available.
The Spin On Megaways Casino
Megaways have become a popular feature of online slots and bingo brands so it’s not a surprise there’s now an “official” casino. The problem with official sites – and we’ve seen the same for Deal Or No Deal Casino, Slingo.com, Rainbow Riches Casino etc. is that they don’t offer anything that can’t be found on other platforms. If Megaways were exclusive to Megaways Casino that’d be fantastic but they’re not and therefore any impact or interest is diluted. Megaways slots can be found pretty much everywhere so why would you bother with this brand? The big plus point is that you can try the Megaways games in demo mode!
