King of Kings is an opulently designed ancient Egyptian-themed slot from Relax Gaming. Played using a 5 reel, 5 payline game engine, it comes with a bonus round that awards free spins on an expanded 6 reel machine. Look out to for bonus re-spins which can deliver some big combinations. Increase your stakes to activate the Jackpot Stars element which can award one of 6 jackpot prizes. Play from between 10p and £50 per spin.

There’s a very luxurious feel to the design here. With a pyramid, the Nile, palm trees and marble pillars in the background, the reels are flanked by bird gods and are dripping in gold. Joining the 5 lower value gemstone symbols are the cat god Bastet, the jackal god Anubis and the bird god Horus. The best paying symbol is the pharaoh. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these and you’ll win a payout of 2, 10, 50 or 200 times your stake.

The golden ankh cross serves a dual purpose. It’s both the wild and the scatter. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these in combination for a payout of 2, 20, 200 or 1,000 times your stake. The golden ankh is also central to the best feature action on offer in King of Kings.

Bonus Re-Spin feature – this can become active on a spin when 2 ankh cross wilds land. 1 symbol is chosen to be a special bonus symbol. You can expect to see plenty of these special symbols during the re-spin which can lead to some big winning clusters.

Free Spins feature – landing 3 or more wilds on the same spin activates this round. You’ll then go on to play 10 free spins. These are played out on an expanded 6 reel machine. This means you can hit 6-of-a-kind winners with payouts to match. Hit 6 pharaohs for example and you’ll pocket an award of 2,000 times stake. Land 2 wilds on the same free spin and 1 more free spin is added to your total. A full re-trigger is awarded if you land 3 wilds in the same free spin.

Jackpot Stars feature – if you wish, you can pay extra to activate the Jackpot Stars element (up to £2 more per spin). This triggers randomly when all 3 lights on the Jackpot Stars meter are lit. You’ll then play a series of streak re-spins on a new set of reels where the 6 potential Jackpot prizes can be won. Depending on the level you choose, there’s a whopping 12,500 times your stake to be won here!

This take on the classic ancient Egyptian-themed slot offers something a little different. The glossy design is blingy but nicely done, as is the stirring soundtrack. The features aren’t the easiest to hit but the big rewards on offer can make them well worth the wait – there’s 5,000 times your stake to be won from each spin or free spin. We found this to be a volatile slot though so tread carefully.

If you like the classical era theme but fancy playing a slot that mixes up the gameplay, then an audience with the King of Kings is recommended. If you like high variance games, give Relax Gaming’s Dragons Awakening a shot.
