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!
