Return of Kong Megaways Review

Return of Kong Megaways is a slot game that allows players to relive the action of Nintendo favourite Donkey Kong. The game is set in a six-reel playing grid and features a staggering 117,649 different paylines on every spin when players enter the multi-level free spins bonus.

The game is a stand alone title from Blueprint gaming and is licenced to feature the Megaways mechanic, so watch for Kong on any spin as he can award a special monkey mystery modifier. The graphics and design aspects of the game are colourful and formatted in a fun cartoon style, so with an apparent range of engaging features lets jump into this review on Return of Kong Megaways now. 

Return of Kong – Free Spins and Bonuses

The long awaited return of Kong is here and he’s jumping for joy with spectacular free spins bonuses. Players can trigger the free spins round with Kong’s medallions where the win multiplier increases with every cascade – collect three golden monkey symbols to upgrade the guaranteed minimum number of Megaways.

There are also a number of other special features to get stuck into:

  • Cascading Wins: Also known as reactions, whenever you spin a win the winning symbols will vanish with new ones replacing them. This process repeats until there are no more wins to land.
  • Mystery Kong: Similar to the original King Kong Cash slot, our friendly ape will occasionally throw golden barrels down the screen which can turn into any one of the other symbols to help deliver a big winning combo.
  • Free Spins Features: The letters K, O, N and G act as the game’s scatters and can trigger a round of 12 free spins. For each scatter above four you’ll get five extra spins, but the best part is that they come with an increasing and unlimited multiplier stepping up x1 with each spin.
  • Golden Monkey: Every now and then a shiny, golden monkey trophy will appear on screen, collecting on the left-hand side. Once you’ve secured three, you’ll get two extra free spins and an increase in the ways to win on the spins.

Other Features 

The symbols in Return of Kong Megaways include the cheeky monkey Kong himself along with other animals such as Rhinos, Tigers, Parrots and then the usual 9, 10, J, Q, K and A cards that appear in most slots. Kong is naturally the highest-paying symbol offering players x10 more than the next symbol which is the Rhino. The rest of the animals offer more modest returns, but are still more lucrative than the card symbols. The special symbols are a leaf as the game’s wild and a barrel as well as the letters K, O, N and G as the scatters. 

Players have 117,649 opportunities to win on a title with medium/high volatility and a return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.03%. Stakes range from a minimum bet of £0.10 to a maximum of £10, supported jurisdictions include UK, Malta, Gibraltar, Isle of Man and Alderney and you can choose from 14 other languages as well as English.

Return of Kong Megaways is fully optimised for mobile play, while the funky design adapts nicely to the smaller screen too.

Return of Kong Megaways – Design & Music

As we’ve come to expect from Blueprint Gaming slots, this one meets the glossy, high-spec feel to the game design. This game is set in a vibrant green, jungle backdrop, and the tiles on the reels are depicted as stone blocks. Each of the animals featured have fun and colourful designs and the animations all run very smoothly. Flaming torches flank the reels, and on the right hand side of the screen Kong stands with his golden crown and pendant, watching over the spins. 

Alongside the imagery is a rhythmic, drum-heavy soundtrack which fits the theme neatly as it emulates the music of jungle tribes and so blends well into the setting. 


There’s a somewhat archaic feel to Return of Kong Megaways, with the imagery, graphics and symbols remaining the same as the original King Kong Cash game.

The gameplay might be pretty standard for a Megaways title with cascading reels, mystery symbols, free spins and expanding modifiers, but the key to the game’s fun is in the free spins as the multiplier can increase indefinitely. Players can earn a maximum win per spin of x50,000 your total stake with nearly 120,000 paylines on which to land.
