Forgotten Island Megaways Slot (Microgaming)
Forgotten Island Megaways comes in as a second slot machine that Microgaming has given this mechanism from Big Time Gaming.
The slot is as a result of a partnership between the developer and All41 Studios. It’s a game with an interesting story and the activity takes place on an island.
For its main character, Forgotten Island Megaways uses a King Kong-like monster. Here is my review of the game:
Forgotten Island Megaways uses the standard set up common with the Megaways mechanism, which is 6 reels, and 117,649 Megaways.
On these reels are a few features that include Free Spins, Rolling Reels, and random Kong Spin (with up to 10x multipliers), among others.
Betting and Prizes
Standard betting is what Microgaming has used here, and by this, I mean a minimum of bet amount of $0.20 per spin. The highest amount that you can use per spin is $20 per spin.
You can also pay to access the bonus feature at between 80x and 150x the stake. This will give you access to up to10 free spins, alongside multipliers of either 2x, 3x/5x or 5x/10x.
The highest possible amount that you can get from Forgotten Island Megaways is 7,000x the stake. I find this payout to be on the lower side compared to what others in this genre offer.
The RTP is within the acceptable level, and at 96.25%, Microgaming has made it fair to players despite the slot’s high volatility.
Forgotten Island Megaways Slot Features
The slot uses Rolling Reels, and this is a mechanism that gives you an opportunity to get extra wins within the same spin.
With the Rolling Reels, the winning symbols are removed and replaced with new ones.
There is a horizontal reel at the middle four columns, and this will help deliver extra ways to win.
Compass Wilds will assist you in forming new winning combinations, in addition to replacing the regular symbols. However, their help is limited since they only appear on some reels.
Forgotten Island Megaways also offers a random feature, and this is the Kong Spin. It applies the multiplier of either 10x, 5x, 3x or 2x, to the winning round.
Upon landing the Kong symbols, you will activate some scatters and this is how the free spins appear. With between 4 and 6 such symbols, the slot will reward you with between 10 and 14 free spins.
You can also retrigger the free spins.
Theme & Design
I love the long-lost island idea, especially how the developer has used it as the background image.
Microgaming has used the Great Ape as the main character, and for the symbols, you will get the Compass Wild, Oil Lamps, Grapple Hooks, the Gorilla Skull, and Books. Royals are available too.
I loved playing Forgotten Island Megaways, and I must commend Microgaming for this great slot that they have added on their portfolio.
The features are great, and so is the RTP, however, I would have loved a higher payout potential, considering that the title is also high in volatility.
