Head to a dense jungle

Visually, Epic Ape is set in a dense jungle – symbols on the reels include regular playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9) as well as chameleons, frogs, panthers and jaguars. The most rewarding symbol is the ape of course which gives you 12 times your stake for a 6 of a kind combination across a payline. The ape also appears stacked on all reels which helps.

Free Games feature

The diamond is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols bar the Free Games scatter – it also only appears on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 (i.e. not reel 1). The wild becomes especially important during the Free Games feature which is accessed when you get 3 or more Free Games scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. The amount of free spins you get depends on how many scatters you get to trigger the feature:

  • 3 scatters give you 8 free spins
  • 4 scatters give you 15 free spins
  • 5 scatters give you 25 free spins
  • 6 scatters give you 100 free spins

Multipliers up to 5x with unlimited retriggers

Back to the diamond wild – during the feature, you will benefit from a random multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x when the wild is part of a winning combination. Furthermore, 2 or more scatters landing simultaneously during a free spin will give you more free spins as 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters will reward you with an extra 5, 8, 15, 25 or 100 free spins. You can retrigger free spins infinitely too!

High variance Epic Ape

Epic Ape is quite a simple slot but is highly volatile – it reminds me a lot of WMS’ Raging Rhino as it has a similar theme, the same number of reels and paylines and diamond wilds with multipliers! Overall, a superb offering from Playtech and a superb and similar alternative to the WMS favourite.
