The wombat says: We like movies here at Wombat Towers, and of course we love slots, too. So when gamesmakers put the 2 things together, it couldn’t get much better for this Wombat! What happens when humans and highly intelligent apes clash for control of the planet? Fire up the reels of NetEnt’s brand new Planet of the Apes slot and all will become clear!
This awesome new slot from the makers of the Flowers Slot (Christmas Edition) has two game windows, each representing one of the movies – Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Well, this is a good looking game isn’t it? It matches the Hidden slot in the beauty stakes I’d say.
As we mentioned, there are 2 different sets of reels in this slot, and each has 20 paylines with 5 reels each. The left reel set is called ‘Rise’ and the symbols there include head monkey Caesar, three characters from Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the standard 10, J, Q, K & A playing cards. On the righthand reel called ‘Dawn’ you’ll find a different version of Caesar (where he looks a bit more knackered up), 3 characters from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and, again, the 10, J, Q, K & A.
The Wilds in this cracking slot are a gold Wild symbol on the left, a red one on the right. Both of these will replace all others symbols on the reels (except for the Scatters) to give you more winning combos.
When you compare Planet of the Apes to older games like Supe it Up, you start t appreciate how slots have moved on. There is no comparison!
A full stack of Wilds landing on a spin in the Rise area will activate the feature, where the stack is copied to the same position in the Dawn area. This gives you the potential for a super mega win when multiple stacks copy to give multiple line wins. The maximum is 1,200x bet when five full stacks on Wilds hit the reels.
Rise Slot Features
On the Rise of the Apes side of the slot game you can win with two blockbuster features. When the Rise Bonus symbol lands on reel 1 the first feature is triggered wherein an additional coin win is awarded for every human and ape symbol on the screen. You can win up to 15,900 coins here. The other feature in this round is the Rise Free Spins that you will win when three or more Rise scatters land anywhere on the reels on that side of the casing. During this free spins round wild symbols are collected in a meter and on your last spin those collected are randomly distributed for your final spin!
Dawn Slot Features
The Dawn features allow you wins up to 600,000 coins with two great bonuses. The first happens when you land the Dawn bonus symbol on reel 5 on the Dawn side of the slot. All ape and human symbols transform into the same symbol. Maximum win is 240,000 coins in that feature. The second bonus happens when you land three or more Dawn scatters on the Dawn side of the game. You will earn 15 free spins where you can collect three different symbols to activate different meters. These meters will award multipliers, extra wilds and extra free spins if you gather enough.
Netent’s Planet of the Apes is one of the most feature-heavy slots we’ve seen recently and it is highly entertaining. We love the movie clips that are littered throughout the game play, and are exciting
