Forgotten Island Megaways Bonus Features
This slot is only the developer’s second Megaways title, but we already see patterns in the way the bonus features operate. You need 4 scatters to trigger bonus rounds, and wilds only appear on the extra slot reel. The free spins round starts with a 2x progressive multiplier, increasing with every rolling reel win, without limits. It’s nice to see that the developer tries to add some variety to its creations by allowing the multipliers to increase indefinitely during the base game in this particular release.
Look out for a compass appearing on the extra top reel, just above your regular grid. It’s the game’s wild symbol that substitutes for all paying symbols except scatters and you’ll need it to better your winning combinations.
Kong the gorilla is your chance at triggering the free spins round so be alert and watch out for a troop of 4. The Kong scatter appears on all reels in the base game and on the extra reel only during the free spins round.
Before you trigger the free spins bonus round, you might be lucky to activate the mighty Kong Spin. The giant gorilla can awake on any random winning spin and, depending on his mood, award a win multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x which can increase 1x with every rolling reel win, without limits. You can also trigger the free spins game during this round and the best part is that you’ll be entering this bonus round with the last multiplier you’ve achieved during the Kong Spin feature.
You’ll need 4 or more Kong scatters to activate the free spins bonus round containing 10 free spins and a 2x starting multiplier. Triggering this feature with an extra scatter adds 2 more free spins giving you 12 free spins for 5 scatters, 14 free spins for 6 scatters and so on.
As mentioned earlier, during the bonus round, scatters appear on the extra reel only, thus, landing 3 and 4 scatters on that reel will award an additional 3 and 4 free spins respectively.
The multiplier here increases 1x with each winning avalanche and there’s no limit to how far you can go. As long as you keep building winning combinations, you’ll have multipliers boosting your wins on every free spin.
Forgotten Island Megaways Jackpot
Forgotten Island Megaways doesn’t have a jackpot but it does have a decent max win potential of 7,000x your stake achievable via the multipliers during the free spins round.
RTP and Volatility
If you’re not careful, facing the king of the jungle in its natural habitat could end badly, so be sure to budget well and prepare for some risky gameplay. On the bright side, paired with an RTP of 96.25%, the high volatility here means that you have the potential to land some big wins once in a while.
