Welcome to the wondrous world of ancient China with King of Ghosts, a newer video slot produced by Endorphina. It came out in Feb 2022 and is based on the story of Zhong Kui, a mythical figure from Chinese legend who commands the undead. As for the game itself, King of Ghosts is a 5×3 video slot with high volatility and an RTP of 96%. Players can win up to 25,000 times their original bet, and the game has twenty potential pay lines.
As you can expect from a newly released video slot, the graphics are pretty decent. When you hit a big win, piles of coins are thrown around, a very pleasing special effect. Three “yin and yang” symbols trigger a bonus round, where you are transported to the underworld to play out your free spins. As it is in the underworld where Zhong Kui truly reigns supreme, he becomes not only a wild but an expanding wild, covering all three spots on his reel.
Bonuses and Free Spins
You can trigger additional free spins during the bonus round as well if you hit another three yin/yang symbols. After each free spin that results in a payout, ghosts will come and try to take your winnings.
Luckily, Zhong Kui has them under control, so you don’t have to worry, and once they are all caged you will receive a multiplier on your winnings of either 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x.
How To Win
Players win by matching three to five symbols along any one of twenty pay lines. Zhong Kui can substitute for any other symbol (just not a scatter), and the top paying icons are:
- Zhong Kui pays up to 10,000: 1
- Golden bird pays up to 2,000: 1
- Fan pays up to 2,000: 1
- Sword pays up to 1,000: 1
Overall, this is one of the better slots we have seen so far released this year. The legend of Zhong Kui is a very interesting one, and the game does a good job of incorporating it.
The artwork for King of Ghosts is on point and the bonus features and neat enough to keep our attention. Most importantly it is just a fun game to play.
