While medieval-themed slots have been done many times before, Big Time Gaming has managed to bring something unique to the table with its newest slot, Kingmaker. Kingmaker uses the MegaWays mechanic to offer over 16,000 ways to win, and there are also multipliers, free spins, and a maximum win of 10,000x your stake per spin. Check it out at Big Time Gaming online casinos.
Kingmaker is a 5-reel, 16,807-ways-to-win slot that’s playable on all devices between $.20 and $20 a spin. The RTP is 96.65% and it's considered a medium-high variance slot. You’ll see a countryside castle in the background and medieval flags on the left side of the reels that count your multipliers.
Reel symbols include A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9 playing cards and green, blue, red, and purple gemstones, all with different emblems. The purple dragon gemstone is the highest-paying symbol – when 2, 3, 4 or 5 land on a payline, you win a .75x, 1x, 1.5x, or 10x multiplier. There’s also a spinning crown scatter – when 3, 4, or 5 land on the reels, you win 4x, 20x, and 250x your stake, respectively. 3 or more scatters will also trigger the Free Spins Feature, awarding 7, 12, or 20 free spins, depending on how many scatters landed.
Gem multipliers begin a 1x and increase every time you get a 5-of-a-kind win. You can see the gem multiplier values on the flags to the left of the reels.
When the Free Spins round is triggered (by 3 or more scatters landing on the reels), the win multiplier applied is the combined total of the gem multipliers at the time that it’s triggered. The gem multipliers are active during the Free Spins, so every 5-of-a-kind winning combo will increase the multiplier by 1. The Free Spins can also be retriggered if 3 or more scatters land, giving you even more free spins.
Big Time Gaming has managed to create something new out of an old theme, so hats off to them. Kingmaker is pretty straightforward for a MegaWays slot, and that works in its favor – there are lots of ways to win but it’s not so complicated that you don't know what's flying. The Free Spins round is particularly exciting since the multipliers come into play and it can be retriggered. And with a max win of 10,000x your stake per spin, Kingmaker is a solid slot all around.
