Big Cat King Megaways Review
Big Cat King Megaways is a game developed by Blueprint Gaming that has been online since September 15, 2020.
The name of this game (Big Cat King Megaways) mainly refers to the theme and a number of symbols. For example, there are symbols of tigers and lions. The game takes place in the savannah, and there are many features that you can play freely in this game. Partly for that reason, we definitely recommend it, and you will read all about it in this review!
Where to play Big Cat King Megaways for real money?
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game will be between 96.5% 96.75%. 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.
As you can see from the introduction, the game takes place on the savannah. This is mainly reflected in the background of the game and by a number of symbols. In the top left corner you can see the number of megaways that participate per turn, and below that you will find the ‘Buy a Bonus' feature and the bet determination. On the other side of the playing field (consisting of 6 reels of max 7 symbols) you can see the title of the game, the ‘spin' button, and the autoplay function. Furthermore, the bottom edge of the game provides information about your balance, your chosen bet, and the amount you possibly win.
How does Big Cat King Megaways work?
This megaways variant also has 6 reels and a maximum of 7 rows per reel. This gives you the well-known amount of a maximum of 117,649 megaways per spin. In addition, we should mention that the middle 4 rows have an extra space above the reel. This is something we see more often in megaways games, and this ensures that the middle four reels have at least 3 symbols. The first and last reel have a minimum of 2 symbols per spin. As always, you can only form combinations if they are formed from the first roll. Usually you need at least the same symbol on the first 3 reels to make a combination. Furthermore, the game has a lot of features, which you can unlock with the necessary luck. Later in this review we will discuss the Cascading Reels, Mystery Symbols, and Buy a Bonus feature. Since there is a ‘Buy a Bonus' feature, this also means that there is a bonus round that you can unlock. Choose a bet from the extensive range with a minimum of 0.20 euros and a maximum of 10 euros per spin, and the game can begin!
The Symbols & Payouts
Below is an overview of the symbols and the corresponding payouts, divided into a number of categories:
- Basic symbols: There are 5 of these, namely the 10 to A of a card game. These symbols pay out between 0.8x and 1.75x your bet with 6 of the same.
- Premium symbols: There are also these, consisting of 5 felines. If you have 6 of the same of the panther this will give you 1.75x your bet, while the leopard and cheetah will pay you back 2x your bet for a 6-of-a-kind. The tiger even pays out 7.5x your bet when you spin 6 of the same, but the lion is the absolute winner with 50x your bet.
- Wild symbol: This symbol has the usual function where it can replace all other symbols, except the bonus symbol.
- Bonus Symbol: Collect enough bonus symbols and unlock the bonus round.
This feature comes in a huge number of Megaways variants. Symbols in winning combinations fall down, making way for new symbols. This process continues as long as no winning combination is created.
We also see this feature more often, and is very characteristic of Megaways games from Blueprint Gaming. This feature activates itself at random times, causing green leaves (in this game) to appear on the reels. Then these leaves all change into the same symbol.
Big Cat Megaways Bonus Round
You can unlock the bonus round by collecting enough scatter symbols. By collecting at least 4 you unlock this feature, and this will give you 12 free spins. For each additional scatter symbol that you collect, you'll get 5 extra spins on top of that. You can also earn extra spins during the bonus round. This can be done by spinning at least 3 bonus symbols on the top 4 squares. 3 bonus symbols will give you +5 spins, and 4 bonus symbols even +10 spins. During the bonus game an increasing multiplier is active. It will start at x1 and increase by +1 for each winning combination!
Big Cat King Megaways Gamble Feature
The Gamble Feature takes place just before the bonus round starts. This gives you the chance to win even more free spins for a small fee. However, it is also possible that you lose and lose spins. Half of the wheel being spun consists of the losing face, while the other half contains a square with +1, +2, and +3.
Buy a Bonus Feature
If you want to skip the basic game, there is also an option to buy the bonus round directly. You have 4 options for this, always starting with a multiplier of +1:
- 12 free spins will cost you 100 times your bet.
- 10 free spins will cost you 75 times your bet.
- 8 free spins will cost you 50 times your bet.
- 5 free spins will cost you 25 times your bet.
Max win & Rating
The maximum win is 50,000x your chosen bet, which is a large amount. In addition, give this game a score of 4/5 stars, which you could predict somewhat in the introduction!
Because of the many features in Blueprints Big Cat Megaways™, we ended up with such a nice score. Although none of the features will be really new, it is still a nice offer when added together.
