The Choice is Yours Megaways 2022
Join your host Iron Dog Studios in another interesting addition to their Megaways collection, in The Choice is Yours Megaways!
The Choice is Yours was an unsold American show pilot hosted by Bill Cullen in the 70’s. The show featured 3 Celebrity panelists along with an audience who were given the opportunity to share their opinions on present issues. Bill Cullen would ask Celebrities a Question or show them a scene which they would need to choose either ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ or ‘A, B or C’ and explain their answer. The audience would then get to vote their opinions and the Celebrity whose answer matched the majority of the audience would earn themselves points.
Iron Dog Studios are making the most of Big Time Gaming’s Megaways mechanic which has made its appearance in titles like Rock the Reels Megaways, Pirate Kingdom Megaways and Santa’s Big Bash Megaways, so it comes as no surprise that they have chosen to include this in another of their titles, but will The Choice is Yours Megaways be as successful as those before it?
Living up to the game show, Iron Dog Studios has created a 1970’s vibe with a classic game show soundtrack and dated symbol designs, entwined with modern graphics. The background is a little basic with blue curtains, spotlights and the odd star dotted around, but given where Iron Dog Studios got their inspiration, it works very well.
Do you think The Choice is Yours Megaways will be as popular as those before it? The choice is yours so get voting!
The Choice is Yours Megaways Base Game and Features
The Choice is Yours Megaways is a 6 reel slot with up to 200,704 ways to win.

Once a Cascade occurs, there is a chance of creating even more winning combinations.
