- Fun mini slot bonus game
- Free spins with increasing multipliers
- Top prize of 10,000x
- Same as Reel King Megaways
- Low RTP of 95.56%
Inspired Gaming has remade its Reel King Megaways slot for the holiday season. In Santa King Megaways, you have all of the game features as the original slot but there’s a cute Christmas twist that is sure to put a smile on your feature.
Theme and Graphics
Santa King Megaways has a cheerful Christmas theme. It looks a lot like the original Reel King Megaways slot, but the symbols are covered in snow and the Reel King has been given a Christmas makeover to look like Santa Claus. Overall, it’s a very cute remake, especially if you’re already a fan of the Reel King slot series.
Santa King Megaways RTP and Variance
The RTP (return to player) of Santa King Megaways is 95.56%, which is much, much lower than the original game’s 96.23%. This is very disappointing, as 95.56% is far below the average RTP nowadays.
It’s also a high variance slot that offers a top prize of 10,000x your stake. This is normally what we’d expect in terms of grand prizes in games that are highly volatile.
How to Win
Hitting wins requires you to land three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels. Since it’s a Megaways game, the number of winning ways changes with every spin – up to a maximum of 117,649.
Whenever you hit a win, the cascade feature springs into action. All of the winning symbols disappear and new symbols fall into their places.
‘Dings’ and Reel King Features
The golden reels in Santa King Megaways from Inspired Gaming are called “dings”. You can start with any number of them, and one more ding is added whenever you hit a cascade.
Reel King Feature
Once you’ve hit six dings in a row, you’ll trigger the Reel King Feature. Here, players travel along a Bonus Trail while spinning mini slot games to earn prizes and potentially trigger the free spins round. There are three different levels to the bonus, depending on the number of dings you’ve collected:
- Reel King: win between 8 and 12 free spins with 1 or 2 Reel Kings
- Super King: win between 8 and 20 free spins with 2 or 3 Reel Kings
- Mega King: win between 8 and 25 free spins with between 3 and 6 Reel Kings
The three Reel King mini slots spin their reels, moving you along the free spins path and providing you with the chance to win 1x, 2x, 5x and 10x.
If you’re lucky enough to hit the free spins bonus, you’ll be able to gamble them first. So, you can vie for the chance to land 25 free spins or lose them all. Considering how much work it is to trigger the free spins round, it’s probably best that you don’t play around with the gamble function too much.
When you’re in the free spins round, it plays out like it does in most Megaways games. Every time you hit a win or cascade, your win multiplier will increase. There is no limit to how high your multiplier can climb in the free spins bonus of Santa King Megaways.
Santa King Megaways Review
When it comes to holiday slots, Santa King Megaways isn’t super impressive – unless you’re already a fan of the original game. It’s basically a Christmas reskin of Reel King Megaways with a much lower payout percentage. So, it’s pretty disappointing in that respect.
There are much more unique Christmas themed slots out there like Santa Vs Rudolph and Polar Paws. However, these games are pretty hard to come by. Developers know that Christmas-themed slots are only going to be played for a few weeks out of the year, so they don’t put all that much effort into creating something totally ground-breaking.
That being said, the features of the original have remained intact which is a good thing. Reel King Megaways is a fantastic game, so you can’t really go wrong basically recreating it with a Christmas flare. With mini reels, free spins and increasing multipliers, there’s plenty of excitement on offer in this slot, so you can look forward to lots of fun as you spin the reels.
Still, why not just play the original? It has all of the same features, and a higher RTP!
