Barcrest gaming have introduced a Multi-way feature that means slot players can cram more line on to less reels with 1024 ways to win on a standard 5 reel 5 column slot.
Slot machines are now becoming one of the most widely played casino games online. They make it easy to get into the action thanks to no deposit bonus codes and the deposit bonuses for slot play are a lot more attractive than many of the table game deals out there. It is no wonder that slots are now beginning to change the way they do business with the punters. Designers are creating an array of features and ways to win to do one better than their competition and BarCrest may just have found one of the most unique ways to give their punters that little extra.

Barcrest gaming are well-known for their inventive stacked wild feature plays and mass of free spin bonus rounds keeping the originality of a slot machines game play and enhancing it to give punters more of a fighting chance at the reels. The designer took wilds and made them even better through stacking them on reels, they took free spins and moulded them into scatter enabled bonus rounds with huge pay-outs and re-spins and now they have taken one of the most original concepts of slots and made it easier for punters spin in a combination win.

Multi way crams in columns instead of the traditional lines on the reels. This means a reel is counted as column, so on a 5 reel slot machine you will in fact have 5 columns deciding on your pay-outs. Each reel will be 4 symbols up and down the screen giving you a total of 4x5 symbols across the reels. This gave barcrest not only more ways to make combinations, but also gave way to the birth of the idea for multi-way combinations.



In effect multi-way turns symbols into semi-scatter symbols by using columns. For instance, if you had a cherry symbol on reel 1, reel 2 and reel 4 in any position you would not win as you would with most scatter symbols. However, if you landed the cherry symbol on reel 1, reel 2, and reel 3 in any position there would be a line through the columns linking this up into a 3 symbol combination even though they don’t appear to be on the same win line. The reason the win counts is because they are on adjacent reels. The symbols have land left to right adjacent to each other for wins to occur, but this is just the simple version as multi-way is a complicated concept that works and dishes out more wins than your average machines.

Slots have always been primarily based around the symbol combinations supported by the free spins, wild symbols and a few easy landing scatters floating in extra multipliers. Now Barcrest have outdone the rest of them not only by making sure free spins, wilds and scatters are all still an integral part of their slot play, but they have taken the base foundation of slots  machines, which has always been combination symbol wins and done the impossible by enhancing it. Barcrest truly are the masters of slot machines keeping in with the old and just making it better, and while the others have been racing in and out with failed new features Barcrest have just kept it real.
