Gorilla Mayhem Slot Overview

Gorilla Mayhem is a new casino slot from Pragmatic Play full of wild African animals. Apart from gorillas are leopards, crocodiles, and hippos on the run. The hippopotamus is the African animal that kills most humans every year, about 3000. Actually, the mosquito is more lethal considering all the diseases it spreads – but that little fellow isn’t present in Gorilla Mayhem. You’ll also find golden screaming gorillas, multiplying wins up to 3X the bet, and a free spins session with 3 levels.

Base game

Gorilla Mayhem is a video slot from Pragmatic Play with 5 reels, 4 rows, and 1024 ways to win. The Min.bet is 0.20 and the Max.bet is 100. Gorilla Mayhem has an RTP of 96.50% but also comes in other versions with 95.50% and 94.50%. Players can expect high volatility while aiming for the max win 5000X the bet.

Within the gorilla jungle are some useful tools for landing the big wins. Make sure to look out for the features Wild Symbol, Scatter Symbol, Golden Gorilla Symbol, Free Spins, and Bonus Buy.

Gorilla Mayhem Slot Information

Gorilla Mayhem is set deep in a wild forest with chirping birds and howling monkeys. Vines frame in the black reels, and the very lush landscape is green with butterflies and small birds flying around. The music is based on some hand drums, and some other instruments come in when you start spinning, but they are never louder than the animal noises. The graphics offer the player clear, sharp symbols and some animations on wins. To make a win, you’ll need to land at least 3 of the same symbol type on adjacent reels going left to right, starting on the first reel to the left. Every combination will result in a win as long as the symbols are on adjacent reels, giving you 1024 ways to win.

The lower-paying symbols in the jungle are 10, J, Q, K, and A. They pay from 1X to 1.5X for a win of 5 symbols. The higher-paying symbols are snake, parrot, hippo, crocodile, leopard, and gorilla. They pay between 1.5X to 4X the bet for a win of 5 symbols. The Wild Symbol substitutes all mentioned symbols, but not the Scatter Symbol. Landing 3 or more scatters will activate the free spins.

What features are available in the slot Gorilla Mayhem?

The features are Wild Symbol, Scatter Symbol, Golden Gorilla Symbol, Free Spins, and Bonus Buy.


Wild Symbol

The Wild Symbol is a picture of the green jungle saying wild. It can land anywhere except on the first reel to the left, and it substitutes all symbols except the scatter.

Scatter Symbol

The Scatter Symbol is a diamond that can appear anywhere. Landing 3 or more will trigger the free spins. You will be awarded 10, 15, and 20 free spins for landing 3, 4, and 5 scatters. Landing 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters in the free spins awards 5, 10, 15, or 20 extra free spins.

Golden Gorilla Symbol

Golden Gorilla Symbols containing 1, 2, or 3 screaming gorilla heads can appear randomly on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. They all substitute the regular gorilla. The symbol with one head has a 1X multiplier, the two heads have a 2X multiplier, and the 3 heads have a 3X multiplier. The multipliers are used whenever a golden gorilla takes part in a win.

Free Spins

Free Spins

You trigger this feature by landing at least 3 scatters. It starts on level 1, where all the golden gorilla heads can land. Every regular and golden gorilla will be collected on a meter to the right, taking you to level 2 if you collect a total number of 40 gorillas. Golden gorillas can only be 2X and 3X symbols at this level. Landing 40 more gorillas takes you to the third level, where only 3X golden gorillas appear. Going to a new level also awards the player 3 extra free spins. It is also possible to win 5, 10, 15, or 20 spins by landing 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols within the feature. The feature is over when the player runs out of spins.

Bonus Buy

You can spend some cash to go straight to the free spins. Just pay 80X the bet, and the feature is all yours.

Gorilla Mayhem Slot Conclusion

It is believed to be around 300000 western and 5000 eastern gorillas in the wild. There might come a day when there are more gorilla video slots than wild gorillas. Gorilla Mayhem is, in total, a better game than the quite recent Lightning Gorilla and should probably instead be compared with Gorilla Kingdom, released about two years ago. The game looks great and we like how the roaring gorilla heads pop out and scream while making wins. The animations to the side of the reels are also very well-made, although the birds’ and butterflies’ movements are short segments that are being looped.

The free spins start with at least 10 spins, and we manage to activate more spins quite often. The golden gorilla heads, doubling or tripling the win, is a nice touch, but their outcome doesn’t feel as valuable as it should. We didn’t feel that the free spins became much more valuable after leveling up in the free spins, either. The RTP of 96.50% is great, a fair bit above industry standard. Just make sure that you don’t end up playing any of the other versions with a lower RTP. The max win of 5000X the bet is totally fine for this highly volatile slot.

Gorilla Mayhem from Pragmatic Play takes the player on a journey to the African jungle where beautifully animated wild animals can help make big wins.
