Kingmaker Megaways Review
Kingmaker Megaways is a game from the well-known Big Time Gaming, which releases a good game every once in a while. Compared to other game providers, they release relatively few games, but their games are always of good quality. With Kingmaker Megaways they have chosen to release a new megaways variant, and it is certainly not a failed copy. It is certainly not a standard megaways slot machine, and you can read why below!
Where to play Kingmaker Megaways for real money?
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game is 96.65%. 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.
In the background you see a beautiful landscape with a castle and a number of mountain peaks behind it. The royal appearance is well reflected, and there are also a number of golden details. The playing field consists of 5 reels with an alternating number of rows, and on the left you see four waving flags. These flags have the colors purple, red, blue, and green and indicate a certain multiplier (start with 1x). The other side of the playing field contains the title of the game, your bet, the ‘spin’ button, the autoplay function, and the settings. Your balance and the amount you win are shown at the bottom of the screen.
How does Kingmaker Megaways work?
So there are a total of 5 reels that contain a different number of rows each turn. Since you can have a maximum of 7 rows per reel, there is a maximum of 16,807 megaways per spin. A special thing about this game is the fact that during the basic game you save for a multiplier in the bonus round, where this often only takes place in the bonus round itself. This has pros and cons, of course, and many people will see this as a cunning way to keep you playing for as long as possible. What you often see in megaways games is the winning combinations that explode, but that is not the case in this game either. So basically you have to hope for the highest possible multiplier in the base game, and then win a big jackpot in the bonus round.
How do you play Kingmaker Megaways?
Also with this slot machine you only have a few steps to take, of which determining your bet is the first. Choose between a number of values between the minimum of 0.20 and maximum of 20 euros, and you are basically ready to start. After this you can choose whether or not to use the autoplay function. Then the game can begin!
The Symbols / The Prices
For the symbols we make the usual list, in which the symbols are placed in a number of categories. Behind each category we will provide you with the necessary information about the symbols:
- As always, the basic symbols consist of card symbols, and in this game it concerns 6 pieces (9 to A). These symbols pay out the least when you form a combination with them.
- The premium symbols consist of four jewels, each of a different color. For the purple jewel, you get 10x your stake back for a 5 of a kind, making it the best paying premium symbol. With the other jewels you only get between 0.5x and 0.7x your stake for a 5 of a kind.
- In addition, you also have a wild symbol, which can help you form combinations. Since the wild can replace any of the above symbols, it is easier to form combinations. Only the bonus symbol is irreplaceable.
- Finally, here we discuss the bonus symbol, which look like crowns. Of course you can eventually reach the bonus round with these symbols.
As mentioned above, you save during the base game for a multiplier that is valid in the bonus game. Every time you turn 5 of the same color of 1 of the 4 jewels, the multiplier on the matching flag increases by +1. As soon as you unlock the bonus round, all multipliers saved will be added together, and this is your multiplier for the bonus round. The number of free spins you play with depends on the number of bonus symbols with which you unlock the bonus round:
- 3 symbols gives you 7 free spins.
- 4 symbols gives you 12 free spins.
- 5 symbols gives you 20 free spins.
An additional advantage is the fact that all 16,807 megaways are active during the bonus round, but that’s not all! For every 5 of a kind of a jewel you spin during the bonus round, you get +1 to your multiplier. And finally you can also collect extra free spins!

As you can read in the intro, this is certainly not a standard megaways game. There are plenty of things that are completely different, with the pinnacle of saving for your multiplier during the base game. We understand it very well if people have doubts about this, but the idea is at least original. Furthermore, it is just a great slot machine and we enjoyed it!
