King Kong Slot Review

King Kong is a 5 reel 20 payline slot game provided by Playtech – there is a Cryptologic powered version out there too just so you know. This slot game is bigger and better and based on the King Kong blockbuster movie which was released in 2005. Created in cooperation with Universal Pictures, you can play from 20p a spin to £100 a spin.

Oddly, there are 2 modes when playing. The main mode (or shall I say the mode you play on at the beginning) is the Jungle Mode. In the Jungle Mode, there are 2 bonus features. Firstly let’s look at the Wild Jungle Respins feature. You can activate this feature by getting 3 or more King Kong symbols anywhere on the reels. You be awarded with 3 respins – look out for the King Kong symbols as they are sticky and remain in place for the duration of the feature.

The next and more exciting feature is called Skull Island Bonus. You can activate it by getting 3 or more Kong logo symbols. Once in, you will come across a map of Skull Island with 13 choices on it. You will reveal 1 of 3 creatures or King Kong himself – if you match 3 creatures you will win a different multiplier value.

The Brontosaurus will give you a 10x multiplier, the Raptor will give you a 15x multiplier, the T-Rex will give you a 20x multiplier and King Kong will give you a 30x multiplier. The Skull Island Bonus feature will end if you reveal 3 King Kong creatures or 3 of any other creatures.

The second mode is the Big City Mode which you enter when you leave the Skull Island Bonus feature. There are 2 bonus rounds in the Big City Mode. The first is the Wild Kong Respins feature which is triggered by getting 3 or more King Kong wild symbols. You will then be awarded 3 free respins that coming with expanding wilds:

  • In the 1st respin, the King Kong wild symbols will become expanded wilds in reels 1 and 5
  • In the 2nd respin, the King Kong wild symbols will become expanded wilds in reels 2 and 4
  • In the 3rd respin, the King Kong wild symbols will become expanded wilds in reels 1, 3 and 5

The other bonus feature is the City Tower Bonus feature. You can trigger this if you get 3 or more Kong logo symbols. This is a ‘Pick me’ feature where King Kong is under attack at the top of the City Tower. You then need to pick 1 or 3 planes on 3 occasions to reveal your cash prizes. Once the bonus round is over, you will return to the Jungle Mode base game.

King Kong is a great slot game packed full of superb features – the fact it has 2 modes sets it apart from other video slots. However, I found the win sizes to be moderate at best meaning King Kong is more about entertainment in my opinion. If you want something with a bit more bite and the potential for bigger wins, try Marvel’s Thor The Mighty Avenger (also by Playtech).
