A Deep Dive

Last week we waxed lyrical about the latest Megaways slot, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, to land in our online oasis of casino entertainment, and now we’ve got another to tempt you with! So soon? Well, it seems that Big Time Gaming has developed an almost missionary zeal to spread the gospel of its innovative Megaways mechanism in 2019, and now offers players a casino crusade in the company of the Holy Diver.


To be frank we had no idea what a Holy Diver was before we clapped eyes on this slot. We imagined a papal submarine service, or perhaps a friar frogman, but Wikipedia came to our rescue with the revelation that it’s actually a song by US heavy metal band Dio. That track features as the music bed to this extraordinary slot, and informs the quasi-religious narrative to this game’s extra Reel Adventure feature that adds the extra firepower to the Megaways reels feature.

Naturally the Megaways format brings with it the lure of up to 117,649 ways to win per spin, but this incarnation forgoes the Win Reactions of Bonanza in favour of the Reel Adventure idea. Our full review goes into more detail on this highly entertaining mission to activate reel modifiers, higher levels of play and free spins but suffice to say that Big Time Gaming has once again shown itself to be a precocious creative force amongst slot developers.


Read the lyrics of Dio’s Holy Diver and it’s all a bit baffling – stuff about riding a tiger, and being the star or a masquerade – but luckily you’ll find the slot that’s been inspired by all this guff makes far more sense. If you’ve already been seduced by the charms of previous Megaways slots, then you’ll be ready to dive in to this new game’s divine gameplay.
