Monkeys and apes have been no stranger in the slot industry which is why RTG decided to join in on the fun. Their release is called Ape King and has 5 reels, 3 rows, and has an astonishing 243 ways for you to land a winning combination. With wins as grand as the gorilla and high volatility, this game is heaven for all of us dedicated players.
Ever since the movie King Kong was released, apes and monkeys have been used as inspiration in the making of many movies and different types of games. The provider of this slot game made great use of many different apes in the making of it and spiced it up with some simple features that are definitely worth experiencing.
The background is quite simple, showing us the trees of the jungle form the ape's view. You will find yourself wanting to swing on one of those leans one you hear the fierce tunes and monkey sound effects. The setting is on the darker side, but then again, we are talking about some big apes here.
The symbols are very interesting and represent the theme very well. There are the lower paid symbols that are represented by some greatly designed royals. The higher-paid symbols all appear as different apes like orangutans, chimpanzees, and gorillas. The wild and the scatter symbol are both represented by the same symbol which is a pot of gold.
As already mentioned, this is a highly volatile game that promises a very energetic playing experience to say the least. The betting range is quite decent with the minimum bet set at 0,30 and the maximum at 150 coins per spin. With that many paylines, you can imagine what the payouts can deliver. Players will get the chance to win up to 1,666 times the stake in a single spin. The game has a 96% RTP which is the average for most slot games.
The provider did not really introduce anything new to us when it comes to the features, but they are still very welcome in our playtime. They do make the playing process a lot more fun and unpredictable and the payouts much sweeter than what they would usually be.
The wild symbol can only appear on the three middle reels. It also does not substitute for lower value symbol that is the royals but only for higher paid ape symbols. This is going to make it a bit harder to form winning combinations, but at least you will know that a great win awaits you.
The same symbol represents the scatter as well and by landing 4 of them anywhere on the reels, you will trigger the Free Spins feature. This is where the monkeys get to really shine as every one of them gets a different value and gets to attack every time it lands on the reels. This is a battle to become ape king and to win it you will need 16 or more ape symbols locked in place.
The game has some amazing winning potential and some interesting things to see there as well. The design is simple but looks great all put together. Even though there are not that many features, they are quite creative, mostly because you get to watch gorillas in battle. The game will provide some amazing payouts which are the most important part after all. It is definitely worth giving a try to.
