Free Santa King Megaways slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Santa King Megaways slot by Inspired Gaming does nothing to increase your anticipation of festive fun in the slotting world. This is because, like so many seasonal slots, it's just a clone of an existing game with some snow chucked on it, in this case Reel King Megaways slot. It's the same elsewhere with for example Nextgen's Foxin' Wins Christmas Edition and Merlin's Magic Respins Christmas, also the gentle seasonal music and background of presents to play along to. So can Santa bring an early present to our bankroll here or is it the hard toffee left in the tin?
On the reels...
You get a scrolling reel above the middle on Santa King Megaways slot where the Wilds can appear and 2-7 rows over the 6 reels resulting in 324-117649 ways per spin. Symbols are stacked and single with no scatters as the feature is triggered via a win ladder for 6+ actions. the 6-of-a-kind pays are 50x bet Sack, Ace 7.5x, Q and K 2x, 10 and J 1.75x, 9 or Melon 1x with Cherry and Plum at 0.8 and 0.9x respectively. No randoms, so let's see the feature!
Reel King Trail
Each win turns a reel yellow from left to right. Once all 6 are yellow, you see a trail and this can lead to free games. You'll start further along the trail if you get 7 or 8 wins to trigger or possibly if the game randomly makes a few reels yellow during the spin beforehand. The basic trigger is 1 or 2 Reel King mini slots appearing and no free spins. These pay wins of 1-10x bet and each time all the 3 reels on any mini slot land yellow, you advance along the trail. You need 4 movements to get to 8 free spins, unless you get the 8+ win trigger.
If you do get to the spins, you can get 8 to 15 on a basic trigger, up to 20 or 25 for the 7 or 8-win trigger. You get an increasing multiplier for each winning action, which will in turn change a reel to red. Get all 6 reels red, then you get another 1, 2 or 3 spins and another 1, 2 or3x added to your current multiplier.
Santa King Megaways slot has a 95.56% RTP and is just as tedious as the original Reel King one. It's hard to trigger the bonus and base game hits are rare of over 15x bet. When you do get the bonus eventually, there's no guarantee of free spins on all but the 8+ cascade triggers so that will really annoy you if it happens. Then to boot, the free spins are mostly disappointing for triggers of only 8 spins. Santa can keep this game in his sack...
