Based on the famous movie monster from 1933 this slot release presents the 8th wonder of the world as more of a playful cartoon character than the King of ‘Skull’ Island. In this King Kong-based release the equally exciting Megaways slot mechanic is in play offering even more potential ways to win.
The setting of play here is the infamous ‘Skull’ island, the setting of the original movie complete with tropical foliage and tribal torches. To the very top of the background, players can see a clear blue sky high above the forest canopy as Kong himself stands on top of a rocky outcrop to the right of the grid. The play-grid is framed by a bamboo structure surrounding the 6 reels of play and the 4 reels above it.
The spin button is designed onto the rockface below Kong’s seat, near the bottom of the screen players can access a quick-spin feature also. Towards the bottom-left of the screen players can change their bet stakes via up and down arrows with the chosen stake inside a circle between them. Across the bottom of the screen, players can see the balance, bet size and any wins that have paid out. The number of pay-lines from each spin is shown on a wooden post in the top-left corner, the number in use is displayed above the word ‘paylines’.
The lower value symbols are made up of the 9 – A of card suits that are designed in playful cartoon-style fonts of various bright colours. Higher value symbols in Return of Kong Megaways are the animal inhabitants of Skull Island; Parrot, Tiger and Rhino designed with bandanas, glasses and even a cigar. King Kong himself is the main game’s highest paying symbol complete with a golden crown, all symbols in this Megaways slot pay-out for between 3 and 6 across a payline. Other symbols included here are a Wild symbol and blingy letter symbols, a golden barrel, ‘Kong’ and a golden monkey statue.
Players can stake between £/€/$0.10 and £/€/$100 per game of Return of Kong Megaways that holds an RTP of 96%.
Features that can come into play at any point during the main game here include cascading reels that replace all winning symbols with new ones from above. The Kong character can also spring into life at any point throwing up to 100 barrels onto the reels that will change to the same symbols for that spin.
The Free Spins feature here is unlocked if the player can land letter symbols to spell out KONG across the wheels. This rewards 12 Free Spins with an extra 5 added for each Scatter symbol that drops during the feature. For each cascading win that is achieved during the Free Spins a progressive multiplier increases by x1, this is known as the unlimited WIn Multiplier feature.
There are also golden monkey trophies on the reel here that can reward players an extra 2 Free Spins every time 3 of these have been collected. On top of this, the minimum number of potential paylines in play will increase each time 3 of these have been claimed. There is a bonus bet feature available that offers players the chance to purchase Free Spin features with various added elements, This feature is not available in every jurisdiction however so it is worth checking out if you can use this.
Explore the exciting number of paylines available at Skull Island and hope to land one of the many exciting bonus features included. Kong himself could share some of his wealth here with the potential of unlimited multipliers and Free Spins.
