Overview of Santa King Megaways slot
Santa King Megaways is from the developers in the gaming department at Inspired Gaming. This slot keeps the King Megaways franchise alive and sees the developers trying to cash in on the imminent holiday celebrations. As this slot is a clone of Reel King Megaways with a twist of Christmas you will know straight away whether it is the one for you. The minor cosmetic changes set the two slots apart plus a lower return to player and change of music. If you find that you really cannot get enough of the King keep reading as he has donned his Santa suit just in time for the big day.
Theme and Design
Although there are no dramatic changes overall you are treated to some new wallpaper and sprinkles of snow here and there, not forgetting the various Santa hats that are dotted around the game screen. The soundtrack is also all you could expect from a Christmas themed slot, so keep your ears open for tracks such as Jingle Bells and so on to really get you in the Christmas mood. Apart from this the King is back.
Game Play and Statistics
The Christmas action occurs on a Megaways grid of 6-reels plus a bonus reel that you will see is located horizontally above your reels. On every spin 2 – 7 symbols will land on your reels, and a further 4 will land on the tracker. When you are playing full guns blazing the slot will provide you with 117,649 ways to win. To create a win, you need to land two or three of the same symbols from the furthest left reel.
Santa King Megaways can be played on any device which gives you the freedom to play this slot anywhere and everywhere should you wish. When it comes to placing your bet, the minimum is 20p per spin up to a maximum of £20 per spin and with such a varied bet range this slot will appeal to most players. The volatility is high, and this is made more extreme by the gamble option that is available during the features. The return to player is slightly lower than the original of 96.23% And sits at 95 .56% which is a little below average compared to competitors’ slots.
When it comes to the pay table there is nothing new and the symbols you will come across include the low paying cherries, watermelons, plums, and the usual playing card symbols 9 through to Ace. The higher paying symbols come in the guise of Santa’s sack full of presents and coins. To create a win, you need to land three or more of the same symbols, however, when it comes to the sack you only need land two. if you get lucky and land 6 sacks on a line you will be rewarded with 50x your stake, whilst the rest of the symbols will pay you from 0.8x to 7.5x for complete line of wins. The wild in this slot is the Crown and this will appear on the extra reel and can substitute for any of the other pay symbols to create winning combinations.
When it comes to the bonus features as stated before this is merely a Christmas version of Reel King, and therefore the features are almost identical as before. Players who prefer a slot with familiar features will be pleased to see the cascades, lit reels, the real King feature, and free spins. Every win activates the cascade feature and when in play it removes the winning symbols from the screen which then allows new ones to drop down and fill the gaps. This can see players landing more winning combinations, and the process repeats until there are no new wins created and the next spin takes place as usual.
Lit reels are an old type of feature that has made a comeback in the Megaways upgrade. In the main game up to six of your reels can turn yellow on every spin. Every cascade will light a reel in yellow, and if all six reels change the play moves into the Reel King feature. One more cascade from the Reel King feature provides players with the Super King feature and one more cascade here and you will enter the mega King feature.
If the above happens at least one Reel King will appear over your reels to spin a one-line mini slot. It is rather difficult to see what is going on at first particularly if you have never seen this before, however if three coloured symbols land on your reels they will award you with 1x, 2x, 5x, or 10x your bet. These symbols can also appear with a yellow background and landing 3 will see you move along the free spins trail which is displayed at the top of the screen. The free spins trail and number of King reels active in the feature will depend upon what is activated.
The Reel King will provide you with 8 to 12 free spins and + 1 to 2 Reel Kings, The Super King will provide you with 8 to 20 free spins and +2 to 3 Reel Kings, and the other Reel King will provide you with 8 to 25 free spins and +3 to +6 Reel Kings. When you land a losing combination on the mini slot, with less than 3 lit reels, the respective Reel King disappears. The feature then comes to an end when all the Reel Kings are gone and if this happens and you have won free spins from the trail you will move to the next future.
The free spins will not start immediately, first you are given the option to gamble the amount that you have been awarded or collected. If you choose to use the gamble, a wheel spins and you can either decrease the spins to 0 or award more up to 25. In the free spins a win multiplier comes into play and this starts at x1, and for every cascade you land this is increased by +1 with no limits. The reels will also light up again however this time they will be red after each cascade from the left most real onwards. The lit reels and the multiplier do not reset between spins and if all six reels are red, two scrolls will spin awarding you with a free 1- 3 free spins and increases the multiplier up to +three.
If you are only going to play this Christmas themed slot for a few minutes at the end of the year you could forgive the developers for not necessarily putting in the hours or resources into it. However, with Santa King Megaways although it is close in look and play to Reel King Megaways the developers have added a bit of Christmas sparkle to ensure that players keep returning to play some more. Whilst most things have remained the same there are a few new elements which make all the difference.
Apart from this all I can say is playing Santa King Megaways is a great way to start the Christmas Holidays particularly if you end up landing a big win as this will certainly make your Christmas even more merry!
