Big Time Gaming brings together a new type of Megaways game with this Kingmaker Megaways slot machine, and it works. It doesn’t work brilliantly, but it works.
Big Time Gaming is the kings of Megaways video slots, so it makes sense to bring out a game with the name Kingmaker Megaways.
The setting is exactly what you’d expect from a game set somewhere in Medieval time, only it’s bright, sunny and beautiful, with four banners flying high. So just moments before the war? So think more Queens Day Tilt by Play’n GO than the brilliant Holy Diver slot.
Those banners are crucial to the success of your campaign against this BTG game with its 16807 ways to win.
So here’s the good news. Every time you get a 5 of a kind win, the respective flag of the same colour will increase its multiplier by 1.
But, that doesn’t mean that that symbol now has a higher value. Oh no. It just means that you are collecting multipliers for the time when you eventually hit the Kingmaker free spin bonus round.
Then, all those multipliers will add up and thats your starting multiplier during the bonus. It’s rarely less than 9, and every 5 of a kind win during the free spins will also continue to increase it.
The problem is that unlike the Bonanza Megaways slot, you don’t have cascading wins here.
The free spins can take over 100 to 200 spins to catch, and you might enter the free spins with a 10x multiplier. So in those times, you may get ten 5 of a kind wins.
Do you see the problem? It’s not that there are no big wins here in this Kingmaker mobile slot game, it’s just that it feels like you are mostly passing time, collecting multipliers, for eventually the chance to maybe get a few decent wins in the free spins.
In short, we gave it 3 stars because the basics are good, the paytable has potential, and those multipliers are fun. Just not enough fun to give it a must-play 4 stars.

Wild: The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the scatter symbol, and appears on reels 2, 3 and 5.
Gem Multipliers: On the side of the reels are four banners, with a starting multiplier of x1. A five of a kind gem win increases the multiplier by 1. These are only present in the base game and resets in the free spins.
Scatter and Free Spins: 3, 4 and 5 scatters awards you 7, 12 and 20 free spins respectively. The multiplier starts at the combined gem multiplier total. These continue to increase with every 5 gems wins.
The KingMaker slot on mobile is another addition to the list of Megaways slots but that it seems to be missing a few key components to make it a must-play.
