Return of Kong Megaways

Return of Kong: Megaways

King Kong is one of the more popular themes players will find in online slots. However, Big Time Gaming’s Return of Kong: MegaWays has more in common with Nintendo’s legendary video game character Donkey Kong than it does Hollywood’s epic ape. This Kong-themed slots game is a cartoony, nut-job style game, and one which features BTG’s award-winning MegaWays payline structure and gaming engine.

There are naturally as many as 117,649 paylines possible to play with on each spin in this 6-reel slot. The number of paylines you get is decided by the size of the symbols which appear on the reels. Wagers cost as little as 10p a turn here, and that is not to be sniffed at. Even maximum stakes in the Return of Kong: MegaWays slots are cheap at 10p a spin. Prizes are fair and reasonable in this highly volatile slot and sit at 50,000 coins in all. Despite being a high variance release, this BTG slot has an RTP rate of 96.03%.

Special features

As is often the case with MegaWays slots, there is a cascading reels feature in play here. It ensures that winning symbols will be removed from the reels and replaced by new ones. This potentially allows players the chance to bag multiple winning combos in succession. When no new wins are possible, the game resets.

Mystery symbols spring up in this game, and so do wild icons. Wilds appear on the horizontal reel above the main reel set. They can help replace others, save for scatters. Mystery symbols appear at random. Kong may decide to throw a few of them (well, up to 100, actually) onto the reels, and they will all transform into the same icon, potentially promoting wins.

A free spin round has been included in the game, too. If they don’t want to wait for scatters to trigger the round, players can buy the bonus in one of two ways. It costs 100x your bet to trigger the bonus outright with a random number of spins. However, you can pay 150x your stake to trigger a bonus wheel, which can dish out a guaranteed amount of turns, as well as a guaranteed minimum number of paylines.

Bonus features

If players want to trigger this slot’s free spin bonus, they are going to need to land the scattered letter icons. K, O, N and G symbols can appear on the main reel set. When all four of them land, a total of 12 free games will be handed out to players. Players can snap up a further 5 free spins by acquiring additional scatters. In the bonus round, an increasing multiplier is added for each cascading win, and it is not capped. Moreover, if players collect golden monkey icons during the round, they can pocket a couple of additional spins, and increase the minimum number of paylines which appear on each turn.

Overview

Light, fun and entertaining; the Return of Kong: MegaWays slot is exactly what players expect of a MegaWays slot from BTG. It is cheap enough and has plenty of features. It is, however, a high variance game, so don’t expect to win too frequently.
