9K Kong in Vegas Slot Review 2024

Get ready to go head to head with the true King of Las Vegas in 4ThePlayer’s latest release, 9K Kong in Vegas!

Once upon a time, King Kong climbed up the building of the Empire State Building in New York and thought to himself ‘I wish i’d gone to Vegas’, so he did. If anyone can win big in Vegas, its Kong, and to help him along the way is 4ThePlayer’s Big Win Repeater, Highest Win Repeater and Free Spins Repeater features!

4ThePlayer are renowned for thinking outside the box, so we’re excited to see Kong loose in Sin City for what promises to be an interesting experience.

Xtra Bet

Before you can begin spinning, you will be given the option to activate the Xtra Bet feature.

Activating the Xtra Bet feature will increase your current bet by 50%, but with that comes certain benefits. Once the Xtra Bet is active, additional Scatters will appear on the reels which will boost your chance of landing the Free Spins round by 150%.

In addition to this, with the Xtra Bet active you will also be given an extra spin on the Big Win Repeater Wheel to win big wins and Free Spins again.

Big Win Repeater

During the base game, if a win above 10x your bet or more is won, the Big Win Repeater feature will be awarded.

Once active, a Wheel will appear on the screen with 2 potential results available.

  • Repeat Win – Landing on Repeat Win will re-award your original win again and an extra spin on the wheel is awarded. You will continue to recieve extra wheel spins until you land on Collect.
  • Collect – Landing on Collect will automatically end the feature.

9K Kong in Vegas Free Spins

Landing 3 Scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10 Free Spins.

During the Free Spins round, the biggest win that is won during this time will be saved on the highest win panel. The biggest win will then be paid out during every winning Free Spin, along with any additional wins from that spin.

If during this round, a win is greater than that stored in the highest win panel, it will be replaced by the new biggest win and paid out during subsequent wins.

Free Spins Repeater

Once the Free Spins round has come to an end, you will be met with a Wheel that can award one of the following results.

  • Landing on Collect will end the Free Spins round.
  • Between +5 and +20 additional Free Spins. The biggest win in the highest win panel will remain in place.
  • Between +5 and +20 additional Free Spins. The biggest win in the highest win panel will be reset back to 0.

You will be given the chance to spin the Free Spins Repeater wheel each time you reach the end of the bonus round, even if you have already been re-awarded with additional spins already.

9K Kong in Vegas: Our Verdict

4ThePlayer are great at creating something that catches the eye, and the features that accompany their games often leave an impression too.

9k Kong in Vegas seems like a classic 4ThePlayer slot in the way that it brings something pretty new to the table. The features may not be new in the sense that it’s something that we’ve never seen before, but they’re presented to us in a new way yet again.

9K Kong in Vegas isn’t the first time they’ve toyed with the idea of repeating wins; their previous title 10x Rewind also explored the idea of experiencing your wins again, but the overal appeal of this kind of feature remains to be seen. It’s great if there’s something worth experiencing again, at least. We tested the game ourselves and we liked the Big Win Repeater, and the chance of it landing within the zone you want seems very fair.

4ThePlayer are extremely creative, and they’re always going to try new things. The danger of this is perhaps creating something that doesn’t take off, but the persistence is what we appreciate. We’re generally a fan of their games, though we’ll admit that a couple here and there fell flat in the eyes of some.

But who’s the winner? The provider who tries new things, falls short and gets up again with another new concept? or the provider who puts a new skin on another Megaways slot?

Whether or not 9K Kong in Vegas becomes a hugely popular title is yet to be determined, but we think it has the makings of a slot with something memorable for those it shows it potential to.

Speaking of potential, 9K Kong in Vegas looks decent with a max win of 9,216x, and players can try it out for themselves when it releases on the 27th October 2022
