Kingmaker Slot is a brilliant new release by Big Time Gaming with loads of exciting extras and bonus features. You can find a Gem multiplier collection feature, and Max ways free spins with win multipliers. That’s not all, Kingmaker is one of the most exciting games released by Big Time Gaming, and whenever you start the game, you never know what you are going to get.
It could be an entirely new mechanic that ends up impacting the whole iGaming industry, or a new feature is introduced that eventually becomes the latest trend. Megaways, Triple Reaction, Reel Adventure, and more, with the list of innovative ideas pretty extensive.
Whatever your opinion of Big Time Gaming, you cannot fail to be impressed with this release, and developer that is continuously evolving and challenge themselves to find new ways to make your gaming experience more exciting and dynamic. The game takes you back to a time to a place where kings and queens ruled the land, and dragons the sky, with brave knights fighting for honour. For better or for worse, the game is designed to offers a sense of progression that slowly builds up the tension and intensities throughout the game as you approach its climax.
Like most Big Time Gaming creations, Kingmaker slots makes use of the popular Megaways system and game engine that gives you a random number of pay lines with each spin. As the game only comes with 5 reels, as opposed to the 6 reel setup otherwise more commonly seen in Megaways slots, you get a maximum of 16,807 ways to win instead of the usual 117,649. That really isn’t a bad deal, as you get to play on an expanded reel set during the free spins. Medium to high variance, you can play Kingmaker on all devices from 20p to £20 a spin.
In terms of visual presentation, the backdrop is designed to look like a scene taken straight from a medieval kingdom at the foot of a snow-capped mountain range, complete with a calm lake and gorgeous green landscape. With a theatrical, low-intensity soundtrack, symbols on the reels include the usual lower-value 9 to Ace playing cards. The premium gemstone symbols are 4 in total, and they carry different emblems corresponding to the banners standing on the left of the reels.
These are represented by double-headed green snakes, blue griffins, red minotaurs, and purple dragons. The house of dragons is the most rewarding symbol, giving you 10 times your stake for 5 on a full pay line. The multi-coloured symbol represents all the houses and is the wild which appears on all except the first reel.
In Kingmaker, the base game has significant influence over the outcome of the free spins. Known as the Gem Multiplier feature, each banner set starts with a 1x multiplier and gets a 1 plus boost each time 5 of a kind gemstones land. For example, if you were to land 5 green gemstones across all 5 reels, the corresponding green banner increases from 1x up to 2x. In broad strokes, that is all there is to the base game.
It comes together during the Free Spins which are played when you get 3, 4 or 5 king crown Scatter icons appearing in view simultaneously, giving you 7, 12 or 20 free spins. Once transferred to the treasure chamber where the total of all your gem multipliers is collected, now become your starting win multiplier. You can also benefit from a fully expanded reel set on every spin, and just like in the base game, every 5 of a kind gemstone win will boost the multiplier by 1. Moreover, another 7, 12 or 20 free spins will be added to your total if you land 3, 4 or 5 scatters.
Highly volatile, there’s potential for wins well over 10,000 times your stake in the free spins game. The theme is engaging, the betting options vast enough to please all players, and the mobile version is fully compatible with all mobile devices, including Android and iOS. Kingmaker is undoubtedly a solid slot, albeit not as progressive as some of Big Time Gaming’s other creations.
