One of the scariest monsters in the history of cinematography has appeared several times in the world of video slots and NextGen did not resist the temptation to create its version of King Kong-themed slot game as well. Set against the big city landscape, featured with nice graphics and an entertaining bonus round, King Kong by NextGen has all what it takes to become one of the most popular video slots inspired by the biggest primate ever.
Fans of King Kong movies will love this game, since they will recognise the scenery, the main participants from various versions of King Kong movies, as well as some striking scenes. They will enjoy seeing King Kong breaking through the reels, waving mercilessly or smashing airplanes like they are kid toys.
Play King Kong
King Kong slot is equipped with a standard set of 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols, each of them connected with some version of the movie. However, all these movies are somehow blended in our mind and you will not mind seeing Godzilla, Airplane, Boat, Hand Cuffs and other symbols at the same time. Anyone familiar with the subject will not be surprised that the highest awarding regular symbol is a blonde girl.
How to play
The main game is played with fixed 25 paylines paying from left to right. This means you will need 25 coins for each spin, but the coin size varies from $0.01 to $2, so your total bet can go from $0.25 up to $50.
The Auto Play button lies next to the Spin button and allows you to set up to 100 auto spins. After each win, above the Spin button you will notice card suits which will lead you to the Gamble feature. It is a standard gamble game in which you need to guess either the colour or the suit of a card in order to double or quadruple your win.
Strategy & Tips
There are two symbols you will hope to see as often as possible – Wild and Scatter. Wild symbol is King Kong himself and it can show up only on the reels 2, 3 and 4. When Wild symbol lands on the middle reel, you will see King Kong breaking the reel and turning it into Wild.
The game logo acts as Scatter and awards generously regardless of the position it takes on the reels. 5 Scatters will give you a moth-watering prize of 2,500 times total bet. However, if 3 of them appear left to right at the same time you will be taken into the bonus round, called King Kong Smash Feature.
The mighty hands of King Kong will be guided by your instructions in order to smash as many airplanes as possible. You will have three chances to miss and then you will be awarded with free spins, depending on the number of airplanes destroyed. You can get up to 150 free spins, but you will be offered a mystery prize if you are willing to exchange it for the free spins.
If you decide to try the mobile version of King Kong, you will be playing pretty much the same game, with the exception of the Gamble feature. Everything else works exactly the same.
Predictably, the bet setting options are removed from the main screen, but you can access it by tapping on the Settings button at the top right corner.
