King Kong Slot

Rate it!

There are numerous King Kong themed online slots out there on the net, but this new title is the only one from NextGen Gaming. King Kong was released in 2016, and is not based on the more recent Peter Jackson directed motion picture of the same name, but instead the older movies.

NextGen Gaming has taken a trip down memory lane with the graphics in this game, opting for an old-school look and feel to the imagery which appears in the slot. King Kong is played over 5 reels and 25 paylines, making the slot fairly standard in terms of how it is structured. How does its gameplay compare, though?

Available stakes

King Kong won’t allow you to alter the paylines on the reels, but with only 25 present, you shouldn’t really need to. You can alter your coin values, though. These can range from just 0.01, up to 2.00 in total. As you may have guessed then, this will see your wagers range from 0.25 per spin, up to 50.00 per spin.

Jackpots

King Kong is a non-progressive jackpot video slot. The scatter is worth a decent cash prize of 2,500 coins, although that pales in comparison to the top paying icon. That symbol is actually Ann Darrow, who can provide you with wins which are worth up to 7,500 coins if you can land 5 of her symbols on any payline in the game.

Special features

The oversized gorilla himself is a wild icon. Kong can appear on the second, third, and fourth reels of the game, and when it does, it can substitute itself for all other icons in the slot, with the exception of the scatters, of course.
One of the added perks of this slot occurs when a wild Kong icon appears on the third reel. When this happens, the King Kong Goes Ape feature is activated. In it, all positions on the third, central reel will become wilds. Additional wilds may also crop up on the second, and fourth reels.

The scatter icon in this game is the King Kong logo. It can not only offer you scattered wins, but also trigger a bonus round if 3 or more scatter icons appear from left to right across the reels.

Bonus Games

This bonus game is known as the King Kong Smash Feature. Once it has been triggered, players can win up to 150 free games, with all of their prizes doubled in value. Players must first choose planes for Kong to smash. Players will keep on smashing planes until 3 of them are missed. The amount of planes you hit determines the number of free games you get. Hit a total of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 planes to land 15, 25, 50, 75, 100, or 150 free games. If you don’t wish to play a free games feature, you can opt to claim a mystery cash prize instead.

Mobile version

King Kong has appeared as a mobile slot, as well as an online one. This shouldn’t surprise too many online casino lovers, since most video slots nowadays are designed with mobile casino players in mind. The slot is no different than its online casino in terms of wagers, structure, gameplay, or special features.

Overall

This slot is actually far more entertaining than any King Kong themed video slots which have come before it. It contains bigger wins, better features, and is a more faithful interpretation of the original King Kong story. If you are going to play any King Kong slot, then make sure that it is the NextGen Gaming version.
