King Kong is a 5 reel (non-progressive), 25-payline, Cryptologic Video Slot. It comes with a wildSymbol, scatter symbol, multiplier, free spin and has a maximum jackpot win of $150,000.
The classic tale of King Kong has been transformed into a 5 reel video slot by renowned developer Cryptologic. The slot includes 25 paylines and two themed features; one of which causes King Kong to go ape! The slots many features are exciting and well thought out; this is further heightened by the $150,000 jackpot.
The King Kong slot is designed with key scenes in mind. The background shows a city backdrop, presumably New York which is lit up by two search lights. When the King Kong Smash bonus round has played this turns to day break. The reels themselves are flanked by an edge of a building which looks remarkably like the Empire State Building, which would make sense as Kong climbs this in the story to swipe at planes.
The reels come complete with key moments, characters and items from the story. The animated symbols include retro film cameras, skulls, dinosaurs, ticket stubs, ships, hunters, planes, handcuffs, Anne, Jack and Kong himself. The designers have carefully matched the action with bespoke music and sound effects, if this bugs you a mute it is located in the settings menu at the bottom of the screen.
Bets range from 0.01 to $20 with over 15 denominations on offer. When multiplied by the configurable 25 paylines this creates a minimum bet of 0.01 and a maximum of $500. Cryptologic has ensured that King Kong is accessible to all players whatever their budget or reason for playing.
Auto Play spins can be set up on the lefthand side, users can select from 1 to a very handy 99 automatic spins which can be stopped at any point.
The King Kong wild symbol can appear on any of the first four reels and replace any other symbol except the scatter to create a winning combination. If this symbol appears on the third/middle reel is causes him to ‘Go Ape’ and fill the reel. This expandable wild offers impressive animation and of course more chances of winning.
The main bonus round, King Kong Smash, starts when three or more King Kong icons appear from left to right on an active payline. During the feature you must smash planes out of the sky. Each successful swipe awards free spins, roughly 15 per swipe on average. Once you have missed three times you are given a choice to either play the free spins or collect an instant mystery win by selecting A, B or C.
The features on the King Kong slot compliment the theme and story well, we were relieved that Crypto included the plane bonus round and commend them for linking it in with the instant win/free spins feature. A great story is now a great video slot!
