Iron Dog Studio launches historic 1 Million Megaways BC Slot.
Of the thousands of online slot machines on the virtual market today, very few can claim to have made a historic impact on the industry. Microgaming’s Mega Moolah was the first (and still only to date) progressive online slot to seed its jackpot at one million. The original Thunderstruck Slot, another Microgaming creation, was the first to install two all-new features in one game. Then there was the Cashapiller Slot (by, you guessed it, Microgaming), was the first to feature 100 paylines.
Each of those received great fanfare, changing the online slots market as we know it. On Friday, it wasn’t Microgaming, but Iron Dog Studio that set a new benchmark standard with the release of 1 Million Megaways BC. The slot machine’s historic feature lies within the title as the game represents 1) a prehistoric neanderthal theme, and 2) more than one million ways to line up a win.
Iron Dog Launches 1 Million Megaways BC Slot
This unique new online slot machine from Iron Dog Studio, the creators of The Curious Cabinet, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, and 3D Blackjack, features more ways to win than any other digital slot machine before it. There will be more to come after, no doubt. In fact, WMS already has a Spartacus Megaways Slot slated for release at the end of this month, featuring the same one million ways. But the credit goes to Iron Dog’s 1 Million Megaways BC for pioneering the potential seven-figure ways to pay.
The reels are designed in such as way as to match the existing high-profile 117,649 Megaways machine. However, it’s the multiplier feature that gives the game its mega-million advantage. The game’s tumbling reels can result in consecutive wins on a single winning spin. Each consecutive winning cascade increases the multiplier 1x. When it hits 4x (four consecutive wins), the Mammoth Reel feature kicks in.
Mammoth Reels expands the reel grid to nine high, doubles the multiplier to up to 8x, and grants 5 free spins at a mammoth 1,058,841 ways to win. You can also buy free spins, but what’s the fun in that? All told, it’s got the potential to pay out up to 45,000x the stake. With a bet range of $0.20 to $20.00, that’s a max payout of $9,000 to $900,000 in a single spin – should one get so lucky.

The caveman theme is nothing new, but Iron Dog did it up well. Its creators compare it to “a primordial volcano”. It’s constantly being fueled, the pressure building, hot vapor and molten lava expanding until finally, “the mountain of earth can no longer contain it, and there is an eruption of an enormous magnitude!”
The game’s highest paying symbols are the caveman and cavewoman. Next highest are wild creatures of the prehistoric age – the mammoth, saber tooth tiger, and caribou. Other symbols are stone-carved values of A, K, Q, J and 10.
Every winning combination sees the symbols involved in the win explode, with more symbols cascading down to take their place. This is called the Tumble Feature. Each win resulting from a tumble lights another tier of the fire pits to the left of the reels. After four consecutive winning tumbles, all four tiers are lit and the Mammoth Reels feature (detailed above) triggers.
The 1 Million Megaways BC Slot is equipped with 6 reels in the base game, expanding to 7 in the feature. At max capacity, Megaways can expand to as high as 1,058,841 ways. The base game multiplier can rise to 8x, or up to 60x during Mammoth Reels. Free spins can be retriggered, granting as high as 300. The game has a high volatility and an RTP of 96.2%
