If the game looks familiar then it may be because it’s a sequel to Blueprint’s quite popular King Kong Cash (2016): the one with a crazy amount of features and bonuses (Nintendo fans also get credit for recognising the overlap with Donkey Kong, which has been a clear inspiration for the series).
Return of Kong MegaWays has actually been exclusive to SkyVegas and Pokerstars casinos since April 2019, but from July 25 it’s available for play at more recommended Blueprint casinos including Calzone, Rizk and MrGreen.
For more info on the game and its King Kong-sized bonuses, hold onto your bananas and let’s roll on with the full slot review.
Win Up to 50,000x Bet in 117,649 Ways
First things first, the game has 6 reels with an extra row on reels 2-5, which is common to most MegaWays online slots.
You need just 2x Kong symbols from left to right to trigger a win, and at least 3x for all else (Rhino, Tiger, Parrot, A-9). The Kong also holds the max payout per line: 50x the total bet.
Cascading symbols are the bedrock of this game, meaning any win will trigger an explosion. This creates empty spaces that need to be filled with new symbols and potentially create new wins. Also don’t forget that symbols can appear stacked and the extra row above reels 2-5 also contains Wild symbols, which adds a bit more punch.
Bets start from just 0.10 credits per spin and are capped at 10, so you can really extend your playtime even with a smaller budget.
But for the maximum win of 50,000x the total bet, you’ll need a bit of help.
Mystery Kong Feature – Win 100 Random Mystery Symbols
Unlike King Kong Cash, which had four unique random bonuses in the base game, Blueprint decided to go with just one for this slot: Mystery Kong (Golden Barrel).
Yes, it’s another mystery symbol feature from the studio, which they seem to like (Diamond Mine, Primal, Tiki Treasures, you name it). But this time it’s different.
Rather than having mystery symbols appear in the base game once in a blue moon, when randomly activated that Kong fella will throw up to 100 Mystery Symbols onto the reels. Very likely you’ll get a cluster of them on the screen that’ll transform into any standard symbol, including the high-paying Kong himself.
And in Free Spins this feature is active all the time!
Free Spins Bonus – Unlimited Multiplier + Up to 117,649 FIXED MegaWays
Return of Kong MegaWays features a completely new Free Spins bonus.
Trigger 12 Free Spins by getting four Scatters (K, O, N, G) anywhere on the reels. Each additional Scatter adds +5 Extra Spins.
Like most MegaWays games, all Free Spins winnings are multiplied and this multiplier increases by +1 with every win (cascades included!).
But it gets better.
The Golden Monkeys is what you want to collect more than ever, because for every batch of three you’ll get +2 Free Spins. Better yet, get the first three monkeys and you’ll be guaranteed at least 1,000 ways to win for the rest of the bonus. Get six and the number increases to 2,000 MegaWays; then to 5,000 MegaWays, 10,000, 50,000 and all the way to 117,6491!
By the time you’ve reached that, the multiplier is also likely to be crazy high! 🙈
👍 Tip: If you like the MegaWays Guarantee feature (played in this particular way) then be sure to check LeoVegas’ new shiny game by the same provider called simply, LeoVegas MegaWays.
Bonus Buy Feature
If you think today is your lucky day then you can buy the Free Spins bonus with a couple of clicks for 100x your bet.
There’s also a second option – Mystery Bonus Buy. It’ll cost you 150x bet but in this one you can win 12 Free Spins starting all the way up with Level 3 or 4, meaning at least 5,000 ways to win will be activated at all times.
👍 Tip: If you’re curious how the Bonus Buy feature works, set the total bet to 0.10 credits and buy either for only 10/15 credits.
Here’s the final verdict.
Conclusion – Go Bananas for Return of Kong MegaWays
The old King Kong Cash is an overkill of a game that offers plenty of emotion.
The Return of Kong MegaWays slot doesn’t aim to compete with it but rather expand on Blueprint’s ever-growing collection of MegaWays games, such as Legacy of Ra that I’ve reviewed earlier.
It’s got a fun vibe and stunning visual effects hard to find anywhere else, frequent wins in the base game yet a high maximum payout of €250,000 or 50,000x your total bet that’s possible with the help of the multiplier-whippin’ and symbol poppin’ Free Spins.
📌 Verdict: It’s not a monkey business but a monkey feast with a great win potential. This should be your next game on your MegaWays playlist.
Have fun and check out the casino bonuses for more bang for your buck!
