Return Kong Intro

RTP en Variance

The RTP, or return to player, for this game is 96.03%. This means that the casino returns this percentage of all bets back to the players. The volatility or variance is high. A high volatility means that you win less frequently, but large amounts.

The Design

The background is filled with images from nature / jungle, and of course the gorilla cannot be missed. 6 reels are typical for a megaways slot, and the number of rows per reel differs as per turn. The middle 4 reels have an extra box at the top of the playing field. In the top left corner you can see the number of megaways that can be achieved that turn. You will also see the ‘Buy a Bonus’ feature on the left side of the playing field and you can choose your bet. On the other side you see the ‘spin’ button, the settings, and the autoplay function.

How does Return Of Kong Megaways work?

Since each roll can have up to 7 rows, the maximum number of possible megaways is 117,649 (7x7x7x7x7x7). So these are the number of ways you can win by forming combinations with the same symbols. These combinations all start on the first reel, and from there the combinations are made. The symbols with which you form a winning combination explode and make way for new symbols! This allows you to form a number of extra combinations in 1 turn! It is also a matter of starting the game, and hoping for nice prizes and possibly the bonus round!

How do you play Return Of Kong Megaways?

For the bet you can choose from 10 different values, and as with many other megaways variants, these are between 0.10 and 10 euros. This is therefore the first step you must take before you start playing. The autoplay function gives you the opportunity to play a number of spins automatically, so you do not have to click every time. Decide for yourself if you want to use this. Then the game starts, and you actually have no influence on the results. Hope for nice combinations and reaching the bonus round.

The Symbols / The Prices

As so often, the symbols are divided into basic and premium symbols. Below we draw up a list of all symbols, followed by a short explanation and the payout:

  • The basic symbols consist of the well-known card symbols (9 to A), of which there are 6 pieces. As always, these symbols pay out the least, and with a 6 of a kind this can go up to a maximum of 2x your bet. Nevertheless, thanks to the many megaways, mystery symbols, and wilds, it is possible to win large amounts with these symbols too!
  • The premium symbols consist of different animals (Kong, tiger, rhinoceros, parrot), so they pay out the higher amounts. Kong is of course the most valuable symbol, and with a 6 of a kind you get 50x your stake back! The other 3 premium symbols yield between 2x and 5x your total bet.
  • A wild symbol cannot be missing, and here too it can help you form beautiful combinations. The wild can substitute for any other symbol except the bonus symbol, of course.
  • The bonus symbol: Collect enough to unlock the bonus round!

Cascading Reels

As we mentioned above, one of the features is the Cascading Reels Feature. This well-known feature ensures that symbols disappear from winning combinations and make way for new symbols. This gives you a chance to win even more within the same bet. This continues until you don’t win anything anymore!

Mystery Symbols

At random times, this feature can just go into effect. A number of Mystery Symbols then appear on the reels, all of which change into the same symbol. This gives you a chance to win cool combinations!

Bonus Rounds

Collect at least 4 bonus symbols to unlock this round, and receive 12+ spins.

Return Kong Bonus Start

For every scatter symbol you collect on top of these 4, you will receive an additional 5 extra spins! As you may know from megaways games, the multiplier is unlimited. For every winning combination you receive +1 for your multiplier, which can add up considerably! The mystery symbols are also active in the bonus round, but will now appear more often. The scatter symbols also participate, and you can save them during this round. They look like golden monkeys and only appear on the top 4 squares of the middle reels. Can you collect 3 of these golden monkeys? Then you will receive +2 free spins and more possible megaways!
