King Kong Slot – Nextgen Gaming

Rizk Casino will be adding the new King Kong Slot to their casino later this month, with a scheduled release date of the 27th of April 2016, so just a few days to wait.

For players who have been playing online slots for many years, this release may look very familiar, and you would be correct in thinking you may have played it before, as to our knowledge this was originally a Cryptologic Slot that were very popular in their heyday, that has been brought back to life by Nextgen Gaming.

All of the original graphics and features seem to have remained intact, with some updated sound effects, and some user interface improvements and of course mobile compatibility too.

The paytables look to be very similar too, with some very high paying 5 of a kind premium symbols wins (7500 coins) and up to 150 Free Spins available in the bonus round and re-triggers potential too, and a decent 95.142% RTP (Return to Player).

Cutting to the chase, this was a brilliant slot in its time (the Cryptologic slots were generally held in very high regard), and Nextgen looks to have kept the mechanics of the slot in place, so if you didn’t get to play it first time round be prepared for quite a high variance slot with plenty of potential to it.

King Kong Slot Bonus Features

There are a couple of bonus features to be looking out for whilst playing the slot, the main free spins bonus round which is triggered from the King Kong Smash Feature and a mini-feature in the base game called King Kong Goes Ape.

King Kong Goes Ape Feature

During base game play if you manage to the land the King Kong symbol (Wild) on reel 3, reel 3 will then transform into a Wild Reel, additionally, King kong may also smash extra Wild symbols onto reels 2 or 4 increasing your chances to win.

King Kong Smash Feature

The King Kong Smash Feature is the main bonus feature and is triggered by landing  3 or more of the Scatter symbols (King Kong Logos) on reels 1,2 and 3, this will then trigger the King Kong Smash feature.
The player then gets to control King Kong to smash left or right, to bring down planes, the more planes you can smash before missing 3 times the bigger your free spins reward.
There is a maximum of 150 Free Spins with a 2x Multiplier to be won for smashing all 6 planes in this bonus, and a minimum of 15 Free Spins for smashing just 1 plane, players also get an option to select a mystery reward from one of three boxes as an alternative to the free spins round.
It is also worth noting that Free Spins bonus round can also be re-triggered during the bonus round, instead of going through the Smash Feature you will rewarded with the original amount of free spins that were awarded.
Given the possibility of 150 Free Spins to start the bonus round with, and a re-trigger possibility this definitely makes it a slot to check out.

Overall Opinions

For players who aren’t aware of King Kong’s origins may find the graphics and bonuses somewhat dated, but make no mistake that this is a high variance slot, with some amazing bonus round potential, and one that older players rated very highly.

The main focus of this slot are definitely 5 of kind big line hits that get multiplied in the bonus round, and an insane amount of free spins if you manage to get a good King Kong Smash Feature and some re-triggers!
