King Kong is one of the original movie monsters, and we doubt there’s anyone in the audience who can’t recall the iconic scene of the giant ape swatting biplanes out of the sky on the Empire State Building, so it’s no surprise he often gets the slot treatment.
King Kong Fury brings that old tale bang up to date with some great visuals and excellent sound design, as well as some fun mechanics to spice up your wins. So will you end up King of the jungle, or are you the next sacrifice? Let’s take a look in our King Kong Fury review!
If you’re not familiar with the rest of the King Kong story, our ape hero lives on Skull Island where he’s not the only toothy creature around. Kong regularly battles similarly gigantic big cats, angry native tribes and actual dinosaurs, all of whom make an appearance in this slot. No expense has been spared in bringing this all to life, with a creepy dense jungle in the background of the reels, while the high-value symbols are excellently drawn and rendered baddies from T-Rexes to Pterodactyls, giant mosquitoes and Stegosauruses. To complement the visual action on the reels this game deploys loads of awesome sound effects and animations, which all serve to really bring this slot to life as the creature’s roar and battle on screen. It’s truly a cinematic experience.
So do the game mechanics match the bombastic theme? Well for a start there’s an extra row to play within this four-row and five reel slot, and 50 pay lines to play on, so you’ve got some big wins in the offing just at the very start. At this point, we should also mention the sky-high betting limit, which sits at £/$/€500, and offers you the chance to make some serious cash on just a few lucky spins, and probably explains the extremely generous RTP of 96.7%. Alongside the usual symbols in this game you’ve also got a couple of random bonuses before you even get into the separate bonus round, Lightning Reels and Kong’s Call. The first bonus randomly selects a premium symbol in a flash of lightning and adds as many as 15 instances of it to the reels, potentially generating wins. Meanwhile, Kong’s Call similarly adds up to King Kong 12 wilds to the reels and potentially creates three stacked wilds in the middle reels.
Had enough yet? Well, if not, we’ve got a free spins bonus round for you that should whet your appetite. Land two of the heroine scatters on reels 1 and 5 and you’ll be taken to the altar where she is about to be sacrificed to Kong. There you will be rewarded with a random number of free spins from nine to as many as 100, with the potential to re-trigger the feature as much as you like in the bonuses. On top of that, any stacked wilds will automatically become sticky in the bonuses, so they’ll stay around for the whole free spins round!
The King Kong Fury slot game is a rollercoaster ride of a slot, bringing amazing visuals, sound and animation to the table, whilst also being very generous with its prizes and features as well. The whole package seems too good to be true, but it really is as good as it sounds. Surely this game is destined to be a classic!
