In its slots games category Microgaming features a class of slots that it calls MegaSpin slot games. MegaSpin slots are similar to multi-hand online video poker games. A number of identical slot games can be activated with a single spin. Each slot game pays out independently. Microgaming offers four MegaSpin slot games. These are Double Magic, Fantastic Sevens, High 5 and Major Millions. Each game is a 3-reel slot with a single payline. The functioning of MegaSpin slots is illustrated using Double Magic as an example.

In Double Magic MegaSpin players can choose from four, six or nine games. Depending on the number chosen that many 3-reel and single row slot games will appear on the screen. Next the player has to choose the betting options. Double Magic MegaSpin offers a very wide coin denomination range that starts at $0.01 and goes all the way till $25.00 with several stops in between. Players can choose either one coin or two coins. The payouts for two coins are exactly double and hence there is no additional advantage in choosing maximum coins in this MegaSpin slot game. Since Double Magic offers only one payline no choice needs to be made in this regard. The total bet in credits is obtained by multiplying the coin denomination, number of coins and number of games. When the maximum values are chosen in each case the total bet per spin goes as high as $450.00.

Clicking the Spin button sets the reels of all the slot games spinning simultaneously. When the reels come to rest the payout of each game is computed independently using the common payout table. The payouts from all the games are added together and constitute the win for that spin. MegaSpin slots have certain options that are not relevant in normal slot games. These are available in the Options menu and are termed as Reel Stopping Order. Players can choose from three options. The Parallel option is the fastest. In this option the first reels of all the games stop first simultaneously. Then the second reels of all the games stop simultaneously. Finally the third reels of all the games stop simultaneously. But many players find it more exciting if the slot games stop one after another because it gives them a chance to evaluate the winnings in each game in real time and also adds to the suspense. The other two options cater to such players. In the Sequential Last option the first two reels stop as in the Parallel option. But the third reel stops sequentially. The third reel of the first game stops first, of the second game next and so on. The Sequential option is the slowest. The first reel of the first game stops first, the second reel of the first game stops second and the third reel of the first game stops next. Then the three reels of the second game stop in sequence and so on.

Double Magic MegaSpin has a wild symbol that doubles payouts and a highest payout of 1,600 coins. Fantastic Sevens has a highest payout of 2,500 coins. High 5 has a wild symbol, a 25x multiplier and a jackpot payout of 15,000 coins. Major Millions MegaSpin is linked to the progressive jackpot network of Major Millions. The MegaSpin slots can be played at all Microgaming online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Platinum Play, All Slots, Roxy Palace and Lucky Nugget.

I don't mind these kinds of games I think it would be better if Microgaming would allow you to break out say 4 - 6 different 5 reel games and play them all in the same window. This would be something that I'd really be keen on playing.

Fun but not the most compelling games to engage in playing. I'm 100% much rather play a game that actually can keep my attention for more then a few spins. Unfortunately these kinds of games and all 3 reel slots games that can be played online for that matter really do it for me.

I don't really mind these games myself and find that they are somewhat innovative as I don't beleive I've seen a similar type game to these at Playtech or Cryptologic powered online casinos.

I could take them or leave them to be honest... they're fun for a few minutes but lack the features that make slot play fun and exciting these days.

The fact that you can change the number of slots that you're playing simultaneously is pretty neat. Would be great if they had more online casino software providers with this game. Also would be interesting I think if they were to introduce a bonus round in this kind of a game.

I've played this game along with other multi-slot type games that that Microgaming offers. They're fun at first for a the first few times that you play them but do get boring eventually. I think that the one thing you hit on the nail is the fact that if they were to introduce some sort of a bonus round in this sort of game it would be great!
