Scheduled to be launched later this year, the game’s pre-registration window will open from 22nd May.

Commenting on the announcement, Ojas Vipat, CEO of Mayhem Studios, said: “We are thrilled to come up with the first Battle Royale Title that promises to offer one of the most relatable storylines for gamers.

Megaways™ transformed the slots landscape when it was first introduced by BTG, with the revolutionary mechanic providing players with 117,649 ways to win as they spin the reels.

This new partnership strengthens an already bright future for 3 Oaks Gaming, which launched in January 2022. Primarily an iGaming distributor of content to regulated markets, the Isle of Man licensed company recently acquired the assets of a number of global slot developers and will continue to expand its existing games offering over the coming months.

Sebastian Damian, Managing Director of 3 Oaks Gaming, said: “We are very pleased to have partnered with the innovative games developer Big Time Gaming and secured the rights to utilise the hugely successful Megaways™.

“The mechanic’s popularity shows no signs of slowing down and continues to be in demand from players across various jurisdictions.
