The payout values of Return of Kong Megaways have to be multiplied by your stake size. For example if you hit 6x Kong (1 on each reel) on a €/$/£ 1.00 bet, you win €/$/£ 50.00. The premium symbols in Return of Kong Megaways are worth some serious money. For Kong you would only need 2 connecting symbols in order to have a win, while you would need at least 3 of the other symbols in order to have a win. When you manage to hit 6x Kong, your win will be a shocking 10x higher than if you manage to hit 6x Rhino, which is the 2nd highest premium symbol. The wild symbols substitute for all other symbols except the scatter, mystery and trophy symbols. If you hit more than 6 of the same symbols, you will see some very nice wins.
Return of Kong comes with a lot of Megaways and that’s always good fun! An additional reel above reels 2 to 5 create all these extra Megaways and thus more ways to win. The base game comes with cascading symbols which gives you that extra chance to hit scatter symbols. Each and every win will put new symbols into your screen. With cascading symbols you can have multiple wins with just one single spin. The base game also has mystery symbols and a random feature where Kong will throw in up to 100 extra mystery symbols. The mystery symbols are the golden barrels in Return of Kong Megaways. With a little bit of luck you fill up your whole screen with golden barrels which will then turn into the same symbol. Kong which is on the right side of the reels congratulates you with every win. It’s nice to see some interaction in a Megaways slot.

When you hit the letters K, O, N and G you will be awarded the bonus game. In the bonus game, there is an unlimited multiplier. Each and ever win will increase the multiplier by 1x. The cascading symbols can really help you to get the multiplier up by using just one free spin. You will start the bonus game with 12 free spins and a random amount of Megaways every spin. The additional reel above reels 2 to 5 will drop golden monkey trophies. If you manage to collect 3, you will get a higher minimum amount of Megaways and 2 extra free spins. The higher the minimum amount of Megaways is, the bigger your chance is to hit a winning combination and build the multiplier. Kong will also drop 100 extra golden barrels (mystery symbol) into the bonus game. Imagine having a lot of Megaways, a high multiplier and a full screen of golden barrels turning into a premium symbol. The potential is huge at Return of Kong Megaways. Since you need at least 4 scatter symbols, it’s relatively difficult to win the bonus game. If you really want to see the bonus game, you can also choose to buy the bonus. You will get the choice between the normal bonus game which will cost you 100x the size of your bet and the mystery bonus game. The mystery bonus buy will give you a random number of free spins and a random number of minimum Megaways. Buying the mystery bonus is expensive since it will cost you 150x the size of your bet. However, it might be worth the gamble since you can build up your minimum amount of Megaways all the way up to 117,649!
