All41 Studios are full steam ahead with their new found Megaways Slots licence, having not so long ago brought us Shamrock Holmes Megaways.
This time, we’re swapping the luck o’ the Irish for the deep jungle as we venture to a forgotten island in search of unimaginable riches.
Forgotten Island Megaways Slot promises an authentic Megaways experience, along with a base game feature that has the potential to secure your place atop a pedestal of the greatest explorer there ever was.
The Legendary Kong makes his appearance in Forgotten Island Megaways Slot, serving as a prominent figurehead for a Jungle theme.
You’ll see the mighty Gorilla himself beside the reels, as well as a vast and Wild jungle. You’ll even see Kong chiselled into the cliffs near the waterfall, it looks as if Kong is certainly held in high regard in the jungle.
The soundtrack for the game fits the theme well with its native tones, rounding up the theme pretty well. It’s certainly not the first time we’ve seen a setting like this, but to give it credit where it’s due, it pulls it off well.
Betting options are pretty standard as far as a Megaways game goes. The lowest option here is £/€0.20, and the highest option is £/€20.
There’s a lot of option in between the two as well, so there’s definitely an option for every kind of player.
The highest symbol in the game is the Gorilla Skull, followd by a Book, Lantern and Grappling Hook. Low paying symbols are A, K, Q, J, 10 & 9, and there’s also a wild which substitute for all symbols except for the Scatter.
Forgotten Island Megaways Slot will be a familiar sight for many. Reel 1 and 6 may display up to 7 symbols, and 2-5 may display up to 6, as well as an extra sliding reel at the top.
Altogether, this means that 7 symbols may be present on every reel for a maximum of 117,649 ways to win.
The potential that 117,649 ways brings is an exciting prospect in itself. Big hits are possible if you’re lucky enough to get a spin with these Megaways, which could set off a chain reaction of consecutive wins thanks to the Rolling Reels feature.
This will trigger on every spin, and it means that winning symbols are removed and replaced by new symbols, possibly creating more winning combinations.
Forgotten Island Megaways Slot also has an interesting little Base Game feature called Kong Spin, which brings excitement of its own to the game.
Any winning spin has a chance to wake up Kong. Kong will award you with a multiplier for the next spin, which could be 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x.
The next spin is free, and the multiplier will be awarded to any subsequent wins. A winning spin will increase the multiplier by an increment of 1, and the multiplier has no limit.
The Kong spin will end when no winning combinations are possible on a spin.
Free Spins may also be triggered during a Kong Spin, and the current multiplier will be carried over to the Casino Bonus.
Free Spins are triggered when 4 or more Kong Scatter Symbols land anywhere in view on the reels.
10 Free Spins are awarded, but an additional 2 spins are up for grabs for any additional Scatter you land when triggering the bonus.
Free Spins will start with a 2x multiplier, but will once again increase by an increment of 1 for every winning combination.
Re-triggers are possible in game too, with 3 scatters offering up an additional 3 spins and 4 scatters adding an extra 4.
This is a bonus you’ve seen a million times before, so you know the potential it has. Couple up a good multiplier with decent Megaways then you’ll have a formula for potentially big things.
Things get a little more interesting for jurisdictions that allow players to buy a bonus. This obviously won’t be available to UK players, but our European audience will be happy to know that a number of options are available here.
As you can see, you’re in control of which option you can choose, all of them varying in price to buy and the setup you can start with.
Once again, All41 Studios have developed what could prove to be a popular and fruitful game, following a tried and true Megaways formula.
All41 Studios definitely haven’t tried to reinvent the Megaways mechanic yet, but they’ve got their foot in the door on what has proven to be an industry-wide craze, and reinventing the wheel isn’t exactly an easy feat after all.
Up to 7000x can be won on a single spin in Forgotten Island Megaways Slot, but this will undoubtedly require a touch of magic in the form of the Kong Spin multiplier carrying over into the bonus for a head start on those bigger hits.
Overall, you’ve played this game before 100 times, but you love it, and so does everyone else. Innovation may be sorely needed at times, but it’s undeniable that the traditional way has an exciting fun-factor and big potential.
Forgotten Island Megaways Slot will be available to play on selected Online Casinos on the 26th of January 2021.
