King Kong, the infamous gorilla, who has starred in many blockbuster hit movies since his creation in 1933, has made it to the online reels. Anyone who grew up watching King Kong flicks will appreciate this slot by Amaya Gaming that lets you relive these King Kong adventures. In addition to movies and slots, King Kong has quite the resume, also inspiring a number of books, comics, cartoons, parodies, theme park rides, plays, video games, and more. Now with his own online slot game, he has it all.
What makes King Kong such a unique and fascinating character that spans generations with his own niche is that he is never the same gorilla. He often plays a rampaging monster, but in other storylines, he sometimes takes on the role of a tragic antihero and other unexpected personalities, making him a larger than life icon and household name. In this slot game, the King Kong saga has been somewhat romanticized, but still holds true to the terror that is Kong.
King Kong is a 5-reel casino game with an adjustable 25 paylines. The slot also comes with wilds, scatters, free spins, and a bonus feature. It is also available for Mac users.
Based on the legendary gorilla, King Kong, the slot of the same name takes place in a big city, where there are plenty of buildings for the crazed ape to climb and demolish, as the city is after all Kong’s jungle. Amaya aims to prompt an exciting experience that follows Kong through the streets as he tears down the city. The twists and turns will have you on the edge of your seat, anticipating what waits around each corner.
Once you and your beastly cohort make it downtown, an unavoidable fate awaits you both, as Kong is met with the bright lights of the search crew hunting down the beastly creature. This is when his primitive instincts really kick in. Try playing while wearing stereo headphones to really add drama to the ambience, as you hear the sounds of Kong wreaking havoc on this virtual city, as you “feel” the screen shake/rumble whenever Kong appears on the third reel.
Symbols you will find on the reels include the King Kong Logo, King Kong, Jack Driscoll, Ann Darrow, Ships, Airplanes, Dinosaurs, Tickets, Skulls, Movie Cameras, Hand Cuffs, and Killer Crabs.
King Kong is the wild feature and he substitutes all other symbols on the reels apart from the scatter. King Kong only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 and is your ticket to the aptly titled bonus event, King Kong Goes Ape. Alternatively, scatter symbols will lead you to the second bonus feature offered in this slot, the King Kong Smash bonus feature (both bonuses are detailed below).
The Ann Darrow symbol is your key to the jackpot, as 5 of her in an active payline will payout 7,500 coins.
The King Kong Goes Ape bonus feature is activated when the King Kong symbol appears on reel 3. The entire reel is then turned into a wild and additional wilds may also be added to reels 2 and 4. When this happens, payouts are recalculated and added to your balance. This bonus round is carried out at the same line bet of the triggering spin.
A second bonus feature is the King Kong Smash feature and is an “optional” free spins bonus event. This bonus is triggered when you get 3 or more King Kong Logos scattered on the reels from left to right. Select planes for King Kong to smash and continue selecting planes until he misses 3 times. Each smashed plane increases the number of free spins awarded. You may choose, however, to reject the free spins and instead choose a prize from 3 mystery prizes offered to you. Choosing a mystery prize does mean that you must forfeiting all free spins awarded. If you retrigger more free spins during the Free Spins bonus session, then the extra spins will be added to your remaining spins. All free spins are played at the lines and bet as those of the triggering spin. Also, the King Kong Goes Ape bonus feature cannot be activated during Free Spins mode.
King Kong the video slot features 25 adjustable paylines. Bets per line start as low as 0.01 and go up to 20.00, which makes this slot a great choice for any avid online slot player looking to enjoy a well-intended video slot. A maximum bet will cost you 500 coins.
King Kong the slot is different from other Amaya titles, but different in a good way. Perhaps the future of 3D online video slots includes a 4-D slot experience. If and when that day comes, this slot would be a good candidate for a prototype in regards to sounds and effects that correlate to the mayhem and seemingly unwarranted anger Kong poses against this city. The one and only King Kong slot will appeal to slot players who like gaming, who are movie/character slot fans, and most of all to those players who have a special place in their hearts reserved for anything King Kong.
