King of the Party RTP, Volatility, & Max Win – Hot or Not?

King of the Party has a theoretical RTP of 94.32% and a High Volatility rating. The RTP level is considered below average, however, this figure is becoming increasingly common in slots within the UK market. If low RTP slots aren’t for you, why not check out our Higher RTP Slots?

The high volatility rating means big wins are likely to occur, yet the risk of hitting smaller wins is far greater in the short term. In addition, King of the Party has a maximum win capacity of 5,000x your bet.

King of the Party Special Features

King of the Party offers Overlay Multiplier Symbols, Bet+ and Bonus Buy options, as well as a Wild Explosion Feature that comes to light during the Free Spins round.

Overlay Multiplier Symbols

During gameplay, random paytable symbols (excluding Wilds and Scatters) can land with special Overlay Multipliers attached to them. Each Overlay Multiplier upon winning symbols is added to the Global Multiplier meter at the bottom of the grid.


Before or after any game round, you can access the Bet+ Feature above the spin button. The Bet+ option gives players a choice of 3 modes.

  • Bonus Boost – Two times more likely to trigger Free Spins (1.4x your bet)
  • Bonus Boost Plus – Five times more likely to trigger Free Spins (2.5x your bet)
  • Party Mode – Guarantees at least 2 Avalanche features, and is 4 times more likely to trigger Free Spins (5x your bet)

Bonus Buy

Boogie your way into the Free Spins round for an additional 100x your bet. (RTP 94.54%)

King of the Party Bonus Rounds & Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, 5, or 6 Scatters during the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10, 15, 20, and 25 Free Spins respectively.

Wild Explosion Feature

During Free Spins, Wild symbols that are not part of a win will explode, removing all symbols (except Scatters) on the same row and reel, causing an Avalanche Feature to trigger.

If any Overlay Multiplier symbols are removed, their multiplier values are added to the Global Multiplier meter at the bottom of the grid. The Global Multiplier also climbs by +x1 when a regular win occurs. Landing 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 Scatters during this time awards an additional +3, +5, +7, +9, and +11 Free Spins respectively.

Pros and Cons of King of the Party

  • Great use of Multipliers that also contribute to a Global Multiplier.

  • Low RTP of 94.32%.


The king of the party may well be the lion in this instance, but we all know the real Kings (and Queens) are Thunderkick themselves. Whether you’re taken by their latest work or a loyal player of their older creations, innovation is never far from Thunderkick’s heart, but what did we think of their latest offering?

King of the Party offers a great atmosphere with several captivating features that keep the vibe alive. The Scatter pays mechanic, paired with Avalanche features, Overlay Multipliers, and the added boost of the Bet+ options makes this game the party of the century, yet the max win cap and RTP are quite the buzzkill.

The welcome addition of the Wild Explosion feature in Free Spins wipes the slate (or rather rows and reels) clean of non-winning symbols so that new symbols can drop in and potentially create a series of wins on the grid. Overlay Multipliers that are wiped out do not go to waste, but rather enhance the Global Multiplier by their value.

All in all, King of the Party is not the strongest offering from Thunderkick, but it’s a party you won’t want to miss out on!
