Reel King Megaways


Hear ye, Hear Ye! The Reel King is back on the Megaways slot from Inspired Gaming. One of the most iconic video slots of the last decade has just received an upgrade courtesy of the immensely popular game engine from Big Time Gaming. With that, his highness returns to a new reel set with cascading symbols, reactive wins, wild substitutions, the well-known Reel King bonus game, a gamble feature and a free spins round with unlimited multipliers that can lead to wins of up to 12,500 times bet or 250,000 credits, whichever is reached first.

The game is live now at Betfair and sister sites of the Flutter Entertainment plc group. It will be released network-wide on 30th June 2020.

Slot Details

Reel King Megaways is a cascading video slot with six reels and up to 117,649 ways to win using the trademarked BTG game engine (more to that shortly). Wins are awarded for two to six matching symbols landing on adjacent reels from left to right only. You can play on the royal reels on desktop, mobile or tablet from 0.20 to 20 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96.23%.

Fans of the iconic original will instantly recognize the slot the soon it loads up. The canvas in the background and the reels with classic symbols on white tiles that turn yellow on feature teasers and triggers are all parts that have made the transition to the Megaways game. Not missing is the Reel King who will appear on the mini in-game slot when the bonus game is triggered.

The pay symbols start at the low end with cherries, plums and melons, awarding 0.8x to 1x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by the card royals from 9 through to A as well as a bag of gold coins. Hit six across the reels to win 1x to 50x times your stake. A jester hat marked with the world itself is the wild symbol, appearing in the horizontal reel only and substituting for all regular symbols. There are no scatters on this slot.

Reel King Megaways Slot Features

The original Reel King slot emerged from the studios of Novomatic (Greentube) in what feels like an eternity ago. The success turned the game into a branded franchise amassing some three billion spins over its lifetime, a number that has been rarely achieved by any other video slot. The franchise became available to Inspired Gaming in October 2019 when they acquired Novomatic UK’s Gaming Technology Group. By releasing Reel King Megaways, Inspire is pitting the smiling royal against the grinning Roman warrior on Centurion Maximus Winnus Megaways as both games are due to hit the casino lobbies in summer 2020. Centurion itself has been an immense success, hence, the dual release will give players the ultimate reel battle between the two blockbuster games. Let’s see what the Reel King brings to the table.

Core to the gameplay is the Megaways reel mechanic with cascading symbols and reactive wins. At the start of a spin sequence, the engine chooses a random number between 2 and 7 symbols to cascade onto reel one and seven. In addition, 2 to 6 symbols will fall onto reels two to six. Lastly, a horizontal reel at the top will bring four symbols into view on top of reels two to six. Altogether, this can lead to a virtually unlimited number of outcomes ranging from 324 to 117,649 ways. Scoring any win will set off the reactive wins mechanic. All symbols from a winning combo will shatter before they are removed to make space for new symbols to tumble into the empty spaces, potentially leading to more winners. The process is repeated as long as a new winning combo lands after a cascade.

Reel King Megaways Yellow Reels

So far, so good. However, while spinning the reels keep an eye on the Reel King meter to the side of the game window as well as your ears open for the well-known “ding, ding, ding” sounds that are used to announce the feature trigger on the original. Your aim is to light up six, seven or eight positions on the meter as that will trigger the Reel King, Super King and Mega King bonus games.

Two items will see you climbing up the Reel King ladder. It can be either or both of them combined that will get you to the bonus games. Up to six reels can light up in yellow colour from left to right at the start of every spin sequence and in turn, adding one step to the meter for each lit reel. Every winning cascade within the same sequence will also light up a reel (if not all are already yellow), further filling up the meter. For example, hear six “ding, ding, dings” starting from the first reel and you got to the Reel King Bonus. The same would happen with six consecutive winning cascades or a combination of both. Any further winning cascade will get you to the top features. Failing to reach the bonus game steps will reset the meter at the end of a spin sequence.

Reel King Megaways – King Bonus Game

Once you trigger any of the bonus games, you will see the screen changing with a new horizontal Free Spins meter appearing on top of the reels. Plus, a random number of mini in-game Reel King slots based on which bonus game was triggered will appear as an overlay. The mini-slots will be key to advancing on the meter towards the free spins or further increase the number of them for your round.

  • Reel King: Will award 1 or 2 Reel King mini-slots. Advance five or more steps to trigger the min. 8 free spins up to a max. of 15 free spins.
  • Super King: Will award 2 or 3 Reel King mini-slots. Advance five or more steps to trigger the min. 8 free spins up to a max. of 20 free spins.
  • Mega King: Will award 3 to 6 Reel King mini-slots. The meter starts directly at 8 free spins and you can advance up to 25 free spins.

The Reel King mini-slots each have three reels with a single pay line, containing blue, yellow and red 7s as well as black diamond symbol. They will spin once at a time and lining up single or mixed coloured 7s will award a coin win which will be added to your round winnings. Every time all three reels light up in bright yellow on a spin, you will advance by one step on the Free Spins meter. The Reel King mini-slots will stay in play as long as either a win occurs on a spin or the reels light up. Any time neither happens will eliminate the respective mini-slot. The bonus game continues as long as there are mini-slots active with all coin wins accumulated in the King Win display.

Reel King Megaways Gamble

Concluding the Reel King bonus game will take you to the Gamble feature. You can decide to collect your won free spins and coin wins or you can gamble to win more free spins, however, no additional coin prizes. The free spins round will start instantly if you have won 25 free spins from the Reel King bonus game. The pie gamble wheel contains red and green sections with the proportions reflecting the level you are on. The higher your amount of free spins, the larger the green sections will become. If you failed to reach the minimum 8 free spins, then you will be offered to gamble the coin wins from the Reel King mini-slot for 6 free spins. Up to 16 free spins, the gamble is all or nothing, from there on it is 20 or 10 and 25 or 15 free spins respectively.

At last, you finally reached the Free Spins round. It will start off with an x1 win multiplier, which will increase by x1 for every winning reaction, no limits. Plus, keep again an eye on the new meter on the side of the reels. Each winning reaction will light up one step, which will not reset between free spins. Getting to the top will see the Reel King spin again a mini-slot with two reels. One can land extra multipliers of up to x3, which will be added to the overall win multiplier and the other +1, +2 or +3 free spins. The result can be either an extra on one or both or nothing at all. The meter will extinguish after the spin, ready for you to start lighting it up again. The round ends when you run out of free spins and all wins from the triggering spin, the bonus game and the free spins round are paid in one amount.

And there is one more thing. Should your balance drop below the current bet value but remains higher than zero, then the game will automatically offer you the Spin Chance. It gives you one chance to win one more spin at the current bet size. A pie chart indicates your odds to win the gamble. Click on PLAY to start the gamble and the marker will start spinning. It will be a winner if the marker ends in the green zone. You can always click on NO to return back to the game screen with the remaining balance.

Final Verdict

Phew, that was quite something to get through. There is an awful lot going on when spinning the reels on Reel King Megaways. Reactive wins, three meters, pie gamble, progressive multiplier – it all sounds like a gambler’s dream come true. Inspired Gaming did a superb job in transitioning most of the features fans of the original have come to treasure and combined it with the potential of the Megaways engine for a truly entertaining slot that will no doubt find its own faithful fans.
