Journey to Forgotten Island and Let Kong Reward You
Forgotten Island Megaways is the latest 6-Reel pokie from Microgaming and all41studios. If you like movies like King Kong, King Kong vs. Godzilla, or most any movie featuring Kong, you’ll probably like this game.
The game is set on the Forgotten Island and you’re trying to collect treasure and discover the secrets of the island. Your pay symbols include Royals, lanterns, ancient books, and gorilla skulls. The compass serves as the Wild and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter.
If you hope to win at this game, you have to trigger multiple line wins. To help you win more, there are multiple bonus features available.
Every time you make a winning combination in this game, you trigger rolling reels. With rolling reels, all winning symbols are removed and replaced with new symbols. If a new winning combination lands, the process continues.
Rolling reels continue until a new winning combination is not made. Rolling reels occur in both the base game and bonus games. It is a great way to improve your winnings.
Every spin has a chance to wake up Kong. When this happens, the game will add a multiplier to the spin and will be either 2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x. If you make a winning combination, the multiplier increases by 1. This continues until no new combinations are made.
If the free games are triggered during a Kong spin, the free games feature starts at the last multiplier in the Kong spin.
I was only able to trigger the Kong spin once during my testing, so it does not appear to trigger very frequently in general.
Kong is the scatter for this game. Get four Kong symbols anywhere on the board and you’ll trigger the free spins game. You’ll get a minimum of 10 free spins but if you trigger the feature with 5 or more Kongs, you’ll get 2 additional spins for every additional kong.
Also, at the start of the free spins, you’ll have at least a 2x multiplier. Every time you make a winning combination, the multiplier goes up by 1x. The winning combination can be the result of either a spin or a rolling reel.
If you land three Kongs during the free games, you will get three additional free spins. Four Kong’s will get you four additional free spins.
I was able to trigger this feature once naturally in this game and boy was it worth the wait. I was able to get a double-digit multiplier and ultimately won 125x my initial bet.
If you don’t want to wait to trigger the free games naturally, you can buy the free spins game. What I like about this feature is that you have three options. You can buy the standard feature with a 2x multiplier for 80x your bet. You can get your free spins with a 3x or 5x starting multiplier for 120x your bet. Finally, you can get a 5x or 10x starting multiplier for 150x your bet.
I tried this once with the 150x bet. The multiplier started at 5x and boy did it pay off. I achieved a multiplier of 17x and won 296x my initial bet. Basically, I doubled my money.
Forgotten Island is the King of Monster Pokies
While Godzilla may be the King of the Monsters, Forgotten Island Megaways is the king of monster-themed pokies. It has a 96.25% RTP and medium variance. The bonus game is a lucrative one and well worth trying to trigger naturally. If you don’t mind the variance that comes with buying the feature, you have a great chance of scoring a big win that way as well.
