Featuring a standard 5×3 grid, The King from iSoftBet has 25 set-in-stone Paylines and is a safari-themed slot which takes place on the sweeping African savannah at sunset, with the reels framed in gold.
It also comes with an elephant and cicadas soundtrack to round off the ambience. The king in question here is the majestic lion, ruler of the jungle (or plains).
How to play
Bets range from 0.25 to 25 per go, coin sizes from 0.01 to 1.00. Lower-paying symbols are the playing-card values A through J, joined on the reels by the yak, zebra, rhino and elephant. The latter shells out at a tidy maximum of 16x stake per Payline.
Otherwise, it plays much like other standard slots, with all the usual controls in place.
The King Slot Special Features
The king of beasts, the lion, is your Wild here, the paw print the Scatter. The Wild whirls in a stacked formation and can land on all five reels.
And, as you’d expect, it replaces all other emblems bar the Scatter and cash wheel symbols.
The other bonus symbol is the cash wheel, and we look at its function in more detail below.
There are two of these in this game:
Land three Scatter icons on Reels 1, 3 and 5 to activate this round. You’ll enjoy eight wager-free whirls as your reward, and during play up to five reels can sync on a single spin, i.e. matching symbols are shown. This can lead to multiple stacks of symbol combos, which can mean tidy cash wins.
Cash Wheel Bonus Mini-Game
Initiate this with at least five cash wheel symbols during the base game. The prize pool has a trio of tiers, and the one you play is decided with a reel respin as the round kicks off. (Reels respin and collect further bonus icons until no more show up.)
You should find this round triggers fairly regularly – here’s how it’s structured:
- Score between six and 10 bonus symbols to enter the Super Cash Wheel game and win up to 1,000 coins
- Score between 11 and 14 bonus symbols to play the Mega Cash Wheel game and scoop up to 2,500 coins
- Score the maximum 15 bonus symbols (i.e. filling every slot on the reels) to trigger the Epic Cash Wheel, in which you could win up to 100,000 coins
While you won’t find a progressive jackpot in The King, there is that top prize of 100,000 coins.
Return to Player
RTP is not too shabby at all here, at 96.01%, while The King slot is a mid-volatility game. What’s more, the hit rate is pretty decent at 33.33%.
The quality of the graphics is worth noting here, despite the somewhat generic nature of the theme, and the fact that the features have both pretty much been done before. But you should enjoy the great artwork and the stunning animations.
It’s highly playable, while also holding a broad appeal for a range of pockets and players. Equally, it’s a good choice if you fancy taking a more straightforward slot for a whirl. What’s more, it’s potentially highly lucrative.
