New Slot Game: Return of Kong Megaways
King Kong is back in action! After his wildly successful game King Kong Cash, Blueprint Gaming brought back our favourite golden bling-wearing gorilla for a new adventure. The game will instantly look familiar to Kong fans, but the Megaways engine makes this game very different from the original. The game manages to look even better visually than the original. Kong’s usual friends Parrot, Tiger and Rhino return as well as valuable symbols and have their art improved.
This 6-reel slot has a maximum of 117,649 ways to win and offers cascading symbols. Spins are £0.10 to £100, with a max win of 50,000 times your bet. RTP is at 96.03%. During your adventure, Kong will cheer for you on winning spins and sometimes even throw golden barrels at the reels to give you mystery symbols (Mystery Kong feature). There’s also the usual wild and scatter symbols. If you spell the name K-O-N-G with scatters on the reels, you trigger the Megaways Free Spins feature. More on this later.
Kong’s friends are high value symbols, but Kong himself gives you a stunning 50x your stake for a 6 in a row. The main feature of Megaways is the Cascading Symbols. When you land a win, the winning symbols are removed and new symbols drop from the top. This can get you another win, which again removes the symbols. This keeps going until there are no more wins. This means a small win can quickly turn into a really big one.
When you get the name K-O-N-G, you enter the Free Spins feature with 12 spins, plus 5 extra per extra scatter. The Mystery Kong feature will activate on every spin and 2 more features might activate:
- Increasing Multipliers: On every win, your multiplier will increase with 1x. There is no limit, so your multiplier can increase infinitely.
- Golden Monkeys: You can land the Golden Monkeys on the top row. If you collect 3, your Free Spins feature upgrades. The ways to win increases and you’re awarded 2 more free spins. The ways to win increase all the way up to 117,649.
The Megaways formula works perfectly on this new Kong game. The game is pretty volatile, but the Cascading Symbols can rack up big wins, especially during the Free Spins round. The visuals are exceptional and Kong’s lively animations make for a very pleasant experience. Return of Kong is definitely a serious contender to Game of the Year.
