Santa King Megaways
Feeling festive? Christmas-themed slot Santa King Megaways is exactly what you're after if you want to play a game that will truly put you in the mood for the holiday season! This 6-reel, 117,649 ways to win Megaways slot boasts cascading reels, lit reels, free spins, a free spins gamble feature, win multipliers and a spin chance wheel.
Like most games that are part of the Reel King series this slot is essentially just a re-skin of Reel King Megaways, which isn't exactly what we'd hoped for... But as fans of the series, we can't grumble too much as it does look good and does the job as a Christmassy instalment.
Symbols are your standard slot/fruit machine iconography. Here players will find a cherry, plum, watermelon, 9, 10, J, K, Q, A and a Santa's sack filled with goodies! The game's wild symbol is the word WILD with a crown and Santa hat atop it. What makes these symbols Christmasy we hear you ask? Well, they're all lightly dusted in snow!
This game is quite unique in the way it plays, if you've played a slot in this series before you'll know what to expect... If you haven't, let us fill you in on the details! The six reels are designed so that the symbols aren't all the same size, a common trait of Megaways slots, there's also an additional row of symbols at the top of the reels covering 2, 3, 4 and 5 this allows for more paylines to come into play.
Players are tasked with not only landing matching symbols across winning paylines, but also turning the game reels gold, triggering a ding noise. If players can light all 6 reels they'll trigger the Reel King feature. Any more cascades beyond that and they could trigger the highly lucrative Super King or Mega King feature.
In terms of navigating and playing the slot, there are three buttons to the right of the reels. From top to bottom we have a stake selection button, a spin button and a game settings button. If players want to set up to a maximum of 100 automated spins then they must hold down the spin botton.
This high volatility slot has a slightly below-average RTP of 95.56% which is saved somewhat by a maximum win potential of 10,000x the player's stake!
Santa King Megaways might well be a re-skin of other Reel King games of old, however, it's still a bloody good game! The soundtrack is quintessential Christmas goodness and the bonus features and mechanics had us on the edge of our seats!
