The wombat says: You all know how we feel about monkeys (they have weird thumbs and eat nothing but bananas). So seeing one the size of a multi-story car park pop into the Wombat Towers spinbox this week was a bit of a shock for us all.
This gigantic gorilla first found fame in 1933 in a B-Movie that terrified audiences at the time. Then the 1960s saw King Kong V Godzilla hit the big screen before hobbit filmmaker Peter Jackson got his paws on the movie in the 2005 remake. Not to be outdone, another film Kong: Skull Island was released last year, and did quite well at the box office. Not that this wombat was interested, as we told you we’re really not monkey fans.
That said, this slot from Blueprint Gaming could well be the thing to get us over our primate phobia. Slots designers in general have definitely upped their game since the Respin Rhino slot and others- and this game is the proof.
Rumour has it that this slot inspired by the King Kong movies features 5 bonus features and, wait for it, a 1000x bet multiplier. So all that separates us from a great big pile of cash is that massive ape. Still, the cash prizes in this game are as big as King Kong himself so it’s worth the risk… Let’s enter the jungle at out peril!
Look and Feel
The first thing you’ll notice Wombat fans is that this is no malevolent monkey. In fact he’s about as scary as a newborn kitten curled up in a fluffy blanket. OK, he’s scarier than the characters in the Lucky Little Gods slot, but not by much! We find the big ape having a nice old nap on his stone throne to the left of the reels surrounded by piles of gold and gems – he’s also sporting a Hawaiian shirt and a crown which is a nice touch.
Your reels are framed by bamboo poles and the background to the action is a lush green jungle with some ancient ruins thrown in for good measure. Meanwhile, the soundtrack is an upbeat bongo ditty that actually won’t get on your nerves – which makes a change. With nice 3D graphics and fun animated touches we think the design is top notch.
Fire it up next to a more traditional game like the Enchanted Prince slot machine from Eyecon and you will see what we mean. Those designers have gone crazy!
King Kong Cash slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. Bets start at £0.20 per spin and go up to a quite frankly King-Kong sized £500.
Your symbols on the bamboo reels include the game logo, a happy-faced rhino, a tiger with a glasses smoking a pipe, a parrot pirate and a crocodile with an underbite, as your high value symbols. Plus the standard playing cards J, Q, K & A as your lower value icons.
The wild in the game is the barrel symbol and it will do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels to help you make extra winning combos (except for the King Kong scatter).
The Scatter icon in King Kong Cash slot in the big guy himself which makes sense really…
Free Spins and Bonus Features
King Kong Trail Bonus
Landing 3x or more of the King Kong Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll set off one of the best features this wombat has come across in a while.
You’ll be taken to a second screen where you will see a whole ladder full of bonuses! First there will be a random spin that offers you 1 of 5 bonus rounds, then you must decide to either gamble and move up to the next bonus feature, or to collect and play the bonus game instead. And here’s what’s on offer:
A cannon shoots barrel wilds onto the reels and they explode to reveal matching symbols. Match 3x of them barrel icons from a possible 20 on offer and you’ll scoop a multiplier win.
King Kong Trail Game
Here you’ll need to choose Multiplier Barrels along a trail to work your way up to the Big Monkey Bonus. Every multiplier revealed includes a chance to move up and reveal yet another multiplier, but if the Barrel reveals a bomb instead, it’s game over.
It’s 10 free spins for you Wombat fans with Roaming Wilds and a level-up Feature as King Kong attempts to scale the Empire State Building. It dishes out more free spins, a win multiplier and further Roaming Wilds. Happy days, and thanks King Kong!
Golden Kong Free Spins
Here you’ll get 10 Free Spins on a brand new set of reels with double the number of paylines. Collect Kong symbols and at the end of the round they’ll become Wild Multipliers and you’ll get respins with them added to the reels. After each re-spin pick 1 of 3 barrels above the reels to spin again, or end the round. Nail-biting stuff…
Big Monkey Bonus
This feature is at the top of the bonus trail ladder is where you’ll find tha 1000x bet multiplier! If you manage to get there, simply select 1 of the 10 bananas to see if you win. EEEEKKKK!
This is a randomly triggered bonus. During any spin, if King Kong wakes up from his monkey slumber, he will leap up off of his throne and award you with one of the following features:
Golden Barrel Super Spin – The giant ape chucks a load of golden barrels onto the screen that turn into matching symbols when the reels stop spinning. Kerching! More wins please!
King Kong Spin Streak – After a win Mr Kong will give you a respin. He’s a good bloke isn’t he?
Banana Cannon Wilds – King Kong will fire off a cannon full of bananas adding extra wilds to the reels for one more spin
Bonus Boost – Here the sleepy monkey adds bonus symbols to the reels to help you trigger off the main (and much more lucrative) bonus.
Goodness gracious me. There’s a whole load of thrills and spills to be had in this jungle, we can tell you that. King Kong Cash slot comes with a ridiculous number of bonuses that will quite literally keep you busy for hours Wombat fans. Add in some chunky payouts and lovely visuals and this game is very playable indeed. Don’t miss it.
