Kingmaker: Megaways

The Kingmaker slot is one of Big Time Gaming’s MegaWays slot machines. Famed for their ability to offer many thousand of paylines at once, the MegaWays series of games has exploded of late, with every developer worth their salt wanting to lease the engine from BTG. Kingmaker: MegaWays is one of the original games from BTG using this engine, but it doesn’t adhere to the typical gaming structure found in most of those titles. 

For a start, Kingmaker: MegaWays only features 16,807 ways to win spread over its 5 reels. This contrasts with the 6 reels and 117,649 random lines we usually see in games in this genre. The slot is both affordable and prosperous for players. Minimum stakes in the release cost just 20p a turn, while even capped maximum bets do not exceed £20 a game. The Kingmaker slot has an RTP (return to player) rate of 96.65% and can dole out prizes worth up to a non-progressive £200,000 in all. 

Special Features 

This MegaWays slot game doesn’t work in the same way that many others do. For instance, the expected collapsing symbols feature just doesn’t really play a part in the game. There are other features which make the slot worth a look, though. 

There is a multi-coloured wild symbol (in the shape of a stained-glass window) which can appear on the second to fifth reels. This can substitute for any, and all symbols in the game, save for scatter emblems. 

To the left of the reels are a series of multipliers. Whenever a five-of-a-kind win is acquired on the reels, a multiplier will be activated. The multiplier will only apply to the symbols which featured in the one. There is one multiplier for each of the four gemstones. Any increased multipliers will only be applied to all winnings with the symbols which they apply to until the free spin bonus round is triggered. After the free spin round is over, the multipliers reset to 1x. 

Bonus Features 

To trigger the free spin round in the Kingmaker: MegaWays slot, you’re going to need to land 3 to 5 of the golden crown symbols. These scatter icons can dish out between 7 and 20 free spins in all. Multipliers start out at 4x and can rise by 1x with each new five-of-a-kind combo a player lands on the reels. There is no top cap on how high the multipliers can grow. As mentioned, once the free spin round has come to an end, the multipliers will reset for the base game, and you will have to start all over again. 


Kingmaker: MegaWays is certainly not your usual run-of-the-mill MegaWays slot. The game offers a substantially different set of features for players to get to grips with, and that makes it stand out quite a lot from many of the other titles out there. We’re certainly not going to get into the nitty-gritty of whether this makes Kingmaker a better MegaWays slot than its rivals, though. That is ultimately for you to decide.
