Gorilla Go Wilder
Gorilla Go Wilder
NextGen’s Gorilla Go Wilder slot was the perfect challenge for a wombat like me. Being a beast who’s not shy of taking on the big boys, in this case: Gary the big blue gorilla.
If you’re a fan of NextGen games you’ll have already tangled with this new game’s little brother Gorilla Go Wild. The original game was a hit and was packed with bonus extras. This time Gary’s gone one better, including a series of secret islands, ripe with bonuses. We haven’t had this much fun since the Bookie of Odds slot and that was a day out at the races, a completely different kettle of fish.
Prepare yourself for new reel adventures where there are prizes of up to 37,500 your wager win in the mix. Now those are my kinda digits!
Look and Feel
Who says that the follow ups are pale imitations of the originals? Gorilla Go Wilder has upped its game on the graphics stakes with the addition of some natty High Definition graphics. This is a full on colour fest like the Yoyo’s Wild slot and one which should perk you up. Sunglasses on, my friends!
Lucky old Gary does live in an island paradise and that comes in handy if you like blue skies and white sand beaches.
The transparent reels are set in front of gently moving waves on the edge of a palm fringed beach. This is one tough wombat assignment- tee hee!
Prepare to be scooped up in the paradise vibe with some handy calypso music that got this groover’s hips swaying.
The Gorilla Go Wilder slot is set over 3 rows, 5 reels and 25 pay-lines- so five more than that other toon game, the Two Fat Cats slot by Inspired Gaming. And this game is bang up to date, as you can enjoy this tree swinging fun on any of your devices.
When Gary spies a win he starts with back flips and gets animated. This big ole’ beast is no threat, however, with his happy go lucky ways. Watch out for his general enthusiasm, and a bit of smiling and nodding. Gary makes the ultimate unusual cheerleader!
At the lower end of the values are the ten through Ace of a card deck. The big ticket icons will be familiar to those who played the original game. The most valuable icon is a Gary on a golden coin, followed by a monkey, toucan and a skunk.
An animated crown-wearing King Gary is the game’s Wild which subs for all other symbols except the Bonus. The Bonus icon is the island paradise in miniature with the word “Bonus” written across it. Who’d have thought? 😉
Who doesn’t like to see a bonus boost to your RTP? If you’re smart enough to collect this game’s souvenir shells then you’ll get a whammy with an increase to your RTP from 92.3 to 97.4%! A nice feature dudes.
Sea Shell Re-Spins
Who sells sea shells on the sea shore? Gary- that’s who. NextGen want you to love their new chapter for Gary the Gorilla and so to keep you spinning, there’s a rewarding Sea Shell Re-Spins feature.
At random after any base game win you can be given a re-spin and, better still, any shells that land with re-trigger a spin. Those freebie spins can keep on coming until you stop landing shell icons or the reels become full of those beauties. And each shell will reward you with a cash prize.
Bonus Island Feature
Prepare yourself for the big one… just land three or more bonus icons on the reels and gain access to Gary’s secret archipelago of islands, bursting with cash-rich goodies. I can’t resist a touch of island hopping myself- I look the business in a Hawaiian shirt and thongs!
Initially expect access to four of the rewarding islands. And better still, each Bonus Scatter icon you land delivers you cash prizes too. Three, four or five scatters will gift you wins of x 4.16, x 8.33, and a mega x 83.33 your wager. You’ll literally be quids in before you’ve even started the bonus play.
In total, Gary’s stashed away eight islands and each brings rewards like multipliers or modifiers.
What’s smart, and satisfying about this game is that as you get further into game play you manage to unlock more and more islands. It’s the number of multiplier visits to this bonus round which will up the access to the more valuable islands.
You will have needed to activate the bonus mode six times before you’re allowed to get yourself into the most lucrative islands, six to eight. The upper RTP of this game only reaches the heady heights of 97.4% when you gain access to island eight.
Each time you access one of the bonus islands you gain 10 free spins. Not bad but each island location offers you a little extra too.
Tiki Bar can be triggered on first entering the bonus island mode. This modifier starts with the free spins and the icons’ value is inflated nicely during this mode, thanks to the Power Pay-table. Oh yes, and you can re-trigger the spins. Bonza!
Crystal Cave comes into play after four triggers of the Bonus mode. This modifier comes with 10 free spins plus a Mystery icon which lands transforming into any of the icons to help make a win (except the Scatter).
Green Jungle is only activated after seven bonus triggers. This location come with the usual free spins and always welcome, Expanding Wilds.
The Big Ones
And after a mighty ten triggers of the bonus you’ll come to the Waterfall (great for a quick dip). This is a tasty treat with all icons (except the Scatter) transforming into Expanding Wilds during those spins.
The Volcano boosts your pay-table and gifts you those 10 freebie spins, after 15 triggers.
Don’t be afraid of the Spooky Jungle. This baby comes into play after 20 triggers and makes some symbols turn Wild.
The epic Purple Jungle location is very rewarding and is yours after 25 triggers. Here you will gain a duo of Wondering Wilds which pitch up and make you a buck. Wild wins are pretty handy too giving you a blooming big x10 multiplier! Got to love the island life!
The outright mega modifier is Sunset Beach location. This picture perfect location loads up if you trigger the bonus 30 times. When this occurs, a special area is marked out on the reels, it can be any size. When the reels spin, any wins inside this special space give you a totally crackers x25 your wager win. Kerching!
This gorilla is a geezer. If at any point in play, he clicks those massive fingers, he can award you a gift. That blue buddy can transport you with his magic monkey ways into the Bonus Island feature. Now that’s one nifty shortcut.
Its well known that a sequel to a hit can be a massive miss, but in Gorilla Goes Wilder’s case this is definitely not the case. The Gorilla Goes Wilder slot is so packed with extras that I had to have two lunches to boost my bonus power to play. This game is a beaut in the looks department and all with a killer RTP.
