About Reel King Megaways™ Slot
Reel King Megaways is the exciting sequel to the popular Reel King slot by Inspired Gaming. This is a great addition to the provider’s slots catalogue, offering a Megaways feature instead of regular paylines and giving players an incredible 117,648 ways to win on every spin.
This Megaways feature also offers 6 rows and 2 to 7 symbols on each row. There is also a horizontal reel along the top with 4 positions. As this game doesn’t use regular paylines, you simply need to hit matching symbols in any row from left to right to pocket a payout.
The retro royal theme is quite strong throughout the game with harpsichord sound effects and the King making regular appearances. Although the gaming mechanic is quite complex thanks to the Megaways feature, the look of the slot is simple with bold colours and clear graphics, while the blue background looks like classy wallpaper.
This slot has a 96.23% RTP and high volatility, so this is a good choice for players keen on excitement and risk. The top payout is 10,000x your bet so this has great potential for big wins, while the 20p minimum bet makes this suitable for all pockets.
Symbols and Paytable
The symbols in Reel King Megaways include all the high cards, such as 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace, along with bags of gold coins, jester hats and fruit symbols – cherries, plums and watermelons.
The cherries pay the lowest rewards with 0.80x your bet for 6 symbols, while the gold coins pay the highest amount with 50x your bet for 6 matches. You need to hit 3 or more matches to achieve a payout with all symbols except the bag of gold coins, which only requires 2 matches for a payout.
The Wild symbol is the jester hat, which appear on the horizontal reel along the top of the screen and can substitute for all the other symbols to create more matches and winning combinations.
Gameplay and Features
Cascading Reels means whenever you hit a winning combination, the winning symbols disappear to be replaced by a cascade of new symbols – and more winning chances. The cascade will continue until no new winning combinations appear.
During the gameplay, any of the reels can be lit yellow, which will be advertised by a ‘Ding’ sound. When you trigger another cascade of symbols, an additional reel will be lit. If you manage to light all the reels, the Reel King Feature begins. More cascades will trigger the Super King Feature or even the Mega King Feature, all offering increasing numbers of free spins.
Reel King Feature
The Reel King Feature is split into 3 types, depending on how many cascades you managed to achieve in a row. The first Reel King Feature offers 8 to 12 free spins and 1 to 2 Reel Kings, the Super King Feature offers 8 to 20 free spins and 2 to 3 Reel Kings, and the Mega King Feature offers 8 to 25 free spins and 3 to 6 Reel Kings. Every new cascade during free spins adds a Multiplier.
During your free spins, the Reel Kings appear over the reels and they can trigger multipliers of up to 10x. If the horizontal reels are lit yellow, you’ll activate the Free Spins Trail which means whenever a Reel King appears in a losing combination with less than 3 lit reels, it disappears from the reels.
Reel King Megaways is an interesting slot with complex gameplay and will surely please fans of the previous Reel King slot. Fans of high volatility slots will enjoy the risk in this game, as there can be long cold streaks – and equally hot winning spells! This is not a game for the faint hearted, although the low minimum bet allows a decent game for all bankrolls. The most exciting part is the Reel King Feature with all the free spins available, while you can also get well rewarded from the unlimited multipliers on each cascade, which keeps excitement levels high.
