The Reel King game series has been a huge hit for Novomatic, and the developers have teamed up with the franchise’s original creators to create Reel King Mega.
Fans of the original Reel King games will be in for a huge treat here as the game takes everything you know about the Reel King slot game and makes it, well, mega. For those who have not experienced the game before, it has a real retro feel to it, with the reels being full of classic slot symbols.
The central character in the game is the titular reel king. He is a moustachioed man who bares a passing resemblance to Mr Monopoly. He is regularly seen during the game, helping you out on your quest for gold.
Graphics and Theme
Reel King Mega keeps the general regal theme that the original game offered players. The graphics and layout of the reels are simple yet effective.
As we’ve already mentioned, the game has a retro feel, and the reels sit in the middle of the screen with a simple blue and white background. They are set to a backdrop of what looks like a forest, with stacks of gold coins at the forefront of the screen. There are also some gold coins falling from the sky as well.
The game’s sound effects are also nice and straightforward. They are based on the classic casino sounds of spinning reels, and they help add to the old-school feel of the game. There are also some cool animations that you can score when you hit a win. The king himself even appears to congratulate you on bigger wins.
Reel King Mega may be designed to have a retro feel, but the game also comes with plenty of modern-day special features.
One of the first features you are likely to encounter is the additional wilds feature. This will happen at random intervals during the game. When you are spinning the reels, the crown at the top of the page will start to bounce, and more wild symbols will appear on the reels. Wild symbols can substitute for other symbols to make winning combinations, meaning this can be a hugely beneficial feature.
The second main feature of the game is a bonus game. In this bonus game, the king himself will appear on the reels when they turn yellow. He will be holding a mini set of reels, and these reels feature a combination of different coloured number 7s. Landing three of the same colour will provide you with a nice 2x multiplier.
There is also a high-risk gambling feature that is available on the slot for those who prefer to add a bit more risk to their gaming.
Reel King Mega borrows heavily from old school slot games, and as such, the game’s set up is very simple. The game has five reels and 20 pay lines. To start the game, you must set your stake. The minimum is 0.20, and the maximum is 200.00, with a coin value of 0.01.
The game’s symbols are all inspired by classic slot symbols. You will see cherries, blueberries, a brightly coloured wild symbol, and the classic 10-A card symbols. You can check their value at any time using the game’s paytable.
Thanks to its simple set-up and features, Reel King Mega looks fantastic on mobile devices. The game has been adapted to work on both Android and iOS operating systems and is also supported on popular mobile browsers.
