Forgotten Island Megaways
What’s the Deal?
Welcome to Forgotten Island Megaways slot from Microgaming and all41studios – where the theme is all about that angry primate King Kong, who inhabits Skull Island. Even those Eyecon Slots like Fluffy Favourites are getting in on the Megaways action, so I guess it is no surprise that Microgaming have started to launch a few.
This being a Megaways game, it comes with all the usual goodies including; 117,649 Ways To Ways and some pretty awesome x10 win multipliers. Plus, a ‘build your own buy bonus’… Wowsers!
That´s about 5 times as many Ways as Sweet Bonanza for example. Pretty mind blowing.
Graphics And Theme
A tropical island makes up the background to the reels, with a waterfall trickling into verdant jungle and stone ruins everywhere you look.
It’s a clean, crisp HD design that’s very impressive indeed…
Not to mention that frenetic drum-heavy soundtrack.
Your premium icons are made up of the gorilla skull, the ancient book, the gas lamp and the climbing hook. Meanwhile the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A from the playing card deck are the colourful lower value symbols.
As for the handy wild icon, keep your eyes peeled for the compass symbol – it will land only on the top horizontal reel.
An extreme close up of King Kong himself is the scatter symbol!
Forgotten Island Megaways slot has 6 reels, 6 rows and 7th horizontal reel at the top.
Just with all licensed Megaways slots, it comes with 117,649 Ways to Win. That’s quite a few more then the Rise of Athena slot which has 10 pay-lines! The number of win ways will vary on each spin, thanks to the varying number of rows and reels – check the counter at the top which will tell you how many you are playing with.
Place your bets from 0.20 to a maximum of 20.00 coins per King Kong spin.
At random in the base game, Kong will roar onto the reels and give you a win multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x. And, any new cascade drops that now happen will increase the win multiplier by x1. Best of all wombat fans, this win multiplier is unlimited!
If you manage to land 4x or more of the King Kong scatters you’ll set off the Free Spins bonus.
You’ll now be awarded 10 goes, starting the spins with a 2x multiplier. On each win, the multiplier will increase by 1x and there is no upper limit to how high it can go.
Plus, for every King Kong scatter icon that lands during this bonus round, you’ll be given an extra 2x more spins to add to your tally.
Now, who said King Kong was a bad guy?
If you’re getting tired of waiting for the Free Spins to trigger (which is possible in such a highly volatile slot), you can part with some of your cash and go straight to the bonus.
Next you have to pick which of the following choices floats your boat:
10 Free Spins with a 2x multiplier for 80 x your bet
10 Free Spins with 3x or 5x multiplier for 120 x your bet
10 Free Spins with 5x or 10x multiplier for 150 x your bet
This option isn’t currently available in the UK.
Forgotten Island Megaways slot is an absolute beast of a game! So it’s a double thumbs up for Microgaming and All41Studios.
The base game Kong Spins really keeps the game moving while you wait for the bonus to trigger, and it can bring some really decent wins.
And if you do manage to land 4x Kong scatters – well, the pay-outs could be as explosive as the great ape himself!
Wombat score: 5/5
