Some of the best slots news as of late is that the Gorilla Chief 2 slot machine from WMS is now avaialble on your Mac or PC. Of course, nature and animal themed games make for great online titles and Gorilla Chief 2 is an addition to these ranks. The game features 50-fixed paylines together with 4 rows and 5-reels. Like most of the other WMS slots, Gorilla Chief also features a fairly generous betting adjuster. With the adjuster you can pick anything down to the penny - you can even go as low as 0.40 coins per spin if you want. You need to however keep in mind that in this game, whatever you bet you will also have to bet on the Second Feature. For instance, if you bet 5 coins for 2 lines then you will have to also place a 75 coin bet to make a total bet of 200 coins. The game features a top Jackpot worth 750 coins.
Somewhere deep in the African jungle is where all the action takes place. The game is well designed with various different Parrots, Bananas, Toucans, Gerberas, Sunsets, Butterflies, Leopards, Iguanas, and a selection of African fruits. You will come across the jungle in the background though you will not see much of it because of the reels. We are also not sure why WMS decided to add fire graphics at the borders as it doesn't really fit in with the theme. Overall, the game is well designed, but the graphics could definitely do with some improvement.
The close up of the Gorilla's Face is the wild symbol and it substitutes all other symbols on the reels apart from the Sunset, which is the scatter and also your ticket to the Free Spins. The wild symbols only land on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. If this game is ever used for slot tournaments online, which is very likely in the near future, its wild and scatter symbols will undoubtedly play a big role in determining the winner or winners of each tournament.
The Sunset symbol is the scatter and you only need 3 of them to appear anywhere on the reels to trigger 10 Free Spins. Additional wilds are added to the reels during the Free Spins feature. You can also trigger the Hot Hot Super Resin feature during the Free Spins. More so, getting 3 or more Sunsets during the Free Spins will win you 10 additional Free Spins.
This respin feature requires an additional wager of 15X the bet per line amount for every 2 lines and this is added to the total wager. All quick bet buttons add the respin feature wager to the total bet. So how does the feature work? Well, if you get stacked symbols on the 1st reel then 2 free respins are awarded. The 1st reel will be locked in place and any wild or matching symbol on the other reels will be locked in place during the respins. This can see you rake in some serious bonus wins.
This game comes with a wide betting range that runs from as low as 0.40 all the way to 200 coins. A single coin activates 2 lines. While 750 coins might seem like a low value for a top Jackpot, the good news is that 7 out of 10 regular symbols will award the top payout as long as you get 5 of a kind in a line. The remaining 3 symbols payout 500 coins for 5 of a kind combination. So, as much as the top payout isn't that much impressive, you actually have a variety of ways to unlock it.
The respins feature adds some much needed creativity to a game that might be a little run of the mill. The sounds require a little more work to make them more entertaining. Additional Second Feature bets and a fixed 50-paylines makes this is a higher variance slot. And speaking of high variance, if you happen to enjoy playing video poker, you may want to try your luck on Jacks or Better poker because of its extremely high variance.
