Gorilla Kingdom slot REVIEW

Gorilla Kingdom ReviewThere are plenty of jungle and gorilla themed slots out there, but Gorilla Kingdom includes some of the more obscure animals we’ve seen in a slot before. This is perhaps the most original thing about this NetEnt game, as the main and only bonus feature is extremely similar to the bonus round on Thunderkick’s hit game, Pink Elephants.

Anyway, Gorilla Kingdom slot plays out in a lush jungle setting, with 5 reels, 4 rows and 1,024 ways to win. The bet range is impressive, as you can place bets between 10p and £350 per spin across all platforms and devices. This could have made this game the natural choice among the two “competitors” for high rollers. We say “could”, because the fact that NetEnt’s source of inspiration dishes up with twice the potential makes that notion highly unlikely.

The free spins bonus round with transforming symbols is the only bonus feature in this game, and it can help you potentially fill the screen with nothing but the highest value Gorilla symbol. Being a medium volatility game, you will churn along without too much trouble here, and the max win potential has been calculated to 4,096x your stake. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and in this case Thunderkick can definitely feel flattered.

What symbols are there?

There are 5 higher value animal symbols in this Kingdom, and the Gorilla is naturally the alpha of the pack. 5 of his grizzly appearance on a payline will award you with 4x your stake, and the other animal symbols are leopards, hornbills, okapis and pangolins. The higher value symbols only need 2 on a payline to win, while the low value royals pay when you land 3 to 5 matching symbols. For some reason, Gorilla Kingdom slot does not come with a wild symbol (which is kind of ironic since it’s all about “wild animals”).

What are the bonus features?

With no wild symbol to help you in the base game, it feels a bit naked to be honest, like being left alone in the jungle with nothing to protect you with. This game is really all about the free spins bonus round, so we might as well jump into that right away.

Free spins in Gorilla Kingdom

You trigger the free spins feature by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the raw, uncut diamond scatter, and this awards you with 10, 15 or 20 spins to start with, respectively. You will now be able to land the Gorilla symbol as a gorilla mask on the reels, and this symbol will pay the same as the high-paying gorilla, but also fill the meter you’ll see to the right-hand side of the reels.

The meter looks like a totem made out of the 4 other high paying animal symbols, and they are arranged in the following order from bottom up: Leopard, Hornbill, Okapi and Pangolin. Each animal has 6 slots to be filled by gorilla masks, and when a meter is full the corresponding animal symbol transforms into the Gorilla symbol when it lands, and you get 2 extra free spins added to your tally.

Since the animal symbols are arranged in order from the highest value to the lowest value, it’s a bit harder to manage to fill them all than it would be the other way around. If you do manage to fill 4 x 6 slots on the meter (which requires 24 gorilla masks in total), you will have gotten 8 extra spins all in all, and only Gorilla symbols and royal symbols will now land on the reels.

You can also land more raw diamond scatters during the bonus round, and 2, 3, 4 or 5 new scatters gives you 3, 10, 15 or 20 extra spins. Being the only bonus feature in this game, it can often go on for a while, and winning decent amounts is certainly possible here.

What is the jackpot (max win)?

There is no progressive or other kind of jackpot to be won in this game, unless you consider filling the reels with nothing but Gorillas a fixed jackpot. In any case, the max win is 4,096x your stake, and bigger wins are naturally much more likely to happen during the bonus round. Play with the highest possible stake of £350, and you can pocket up to around £1.4 million on a single spin here. Not too shabby for a medium volatile slot.

SlotCatalog verdict

NetEnt always delivers audiovisually pleasing games, so we expect nothing less in that department. With Gorilla Kingdom, however, they have decided to borrow the main feature from Thunderkick’s success game, Pink Elephants, which some might frown upon. The transforming symbols feature is exciting enough here too though, but the max win potential is about half of what the source of inspiration has to offer (even though both slots are of medium volatility).

Pros

Free spins with transforming symbols

Medium volatility and 4,096x max win potential

Good bet range up to £350 per spin

Cons

Similar to Pink Elephant, but with half the potential
