Shining King Megaways

Shining King Megaways is one of the newest pokies from iSoftBet to hit Pokie Place. Megaways pokies are unique in that the have 117,649 ways of forming winning combinations. As long as the matching symbols start on the first real and continue on adjacent reels, you can count that as a win!

Shining King Megaways is not your standard 5 reel pokie, but rather has 6 reels and each reel can display up to 7 symbols at a time. In addition to the vertical reels you also have one horizontal reel above which adds an extra symbol to the 4 inner reels.

This royal pokie has a rather narrow betting range of 0.20 – 1.40, a high RTP (Return to Player) and is highly volatile.

What does this mean? Volatility doesn’t affect the payout rate or RTP, as it is sometimes referred to. It affects the way that wins are grouped. Low volatility games will spread your wins out in a way that allows you to collect small yet frequent wins. While the high volatility games will pay out bigger chunks fewer and far between.
Features
Cascading symbols triggered by any win. How does this work? Symbols that have formed a winning combo disappear, creating gaps which fill in with symbols from above. As the new symbols settle into place you can start forming more winning combinations, causing more cascading wins
Free spins
Each time the bonus symbol appears you can count on an extra 5 free spins with a cap of 27 free spins in the bonus round. Win even MORE free spins by lining up three or more bonus symbols in the top tracker.
Unlimited multiplier
This extra special feature is only available during the free spins rounds and only applies to successive wins. As in the regular play, each win triggers a cascade of symbols, each win thereafter will start multiplying your wins, starting at 1 time and moving up a notch each time you land a winning combo.

If you are looking for the quickest way to activate the free spins round consider buying the Crown Bet, which is 75 times your bet and will immediately get the free spins round going for you.
Special Symbols
The bonus symbol doesn’t have its own value, it functions as the trigger for the free spins round when you land 4 or more and lets you play 12 free spins at the triggering bet.

The wild symbol is the substitute and helps you to create winning combinations where there otherwise wouldn’t have been one by substituting for other matching symbols. With many high volatility games, during normal game play the wild symbol hardly offers extra features and this game is no exception. Also lacking its own value, this symbol doesn’t add a multiplier either.

The Mystery Symbol is indicated with the question mark and when you get lucky enough, after each spin all of the mystery symbols will transform into matching symbols. Count them up and see what you won!

The top paying symbol is the 7, paying more than 6 times the value of the next symbol down, the dollar sign. The rest of the paytable is riddled with all kinds of fruits to whet your appetite, including cherries, lemons and grapes.
Conclusion
As is typical with high volatility pokies, the free spins round is usually where the money is made and in this game there is no exception. While not a lot of spins are awarded at first, the potential to accumulate more and more spins is huge. Not to mention the unlimited multiplier which can really add a bulge in your wallet.
