Venture deep into the heart of the jungle on a quest for a jackpot in Mighty Kong, a gorilla-themed slot from Pragmatic Play. It’s a 5 reel, 50 payline game that comes with stacked wilds and a bonus feature where between 5 and 80 free spins are on offer with multipliers of between 1x and 8x. Play from between 50p and £250 per spin.

The design in Mighty Kong gives the feel of a classic adventure movie. Set against a misty, forest backdrop, the symbols spin on what looks like reels from a movie camera. Those symbols include A to 10 playing cards, a Harry Potter lookalike explorer, an eye-patched adventurer, a gnarly old sea captain and male and female leads. The heroine is the most lucrative symbol – 5 on a payline will get you a payout of 1,000 coins.

There’s also a wild – when it hits on the middle reel, it will expand to fill all of it if a winning combination is created from that expansion.

The other symbol to look out for is Kong the gorilla which is the game’s scatter – land 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature. Here you’ll be given 4 free spin and multiplier combinations to choose from – the options are:

  • 40 free spins with a 1x multiplier
  • 13 free spins with a 3x multiplier
  • 8 free spins with a 5x multipliers
  • 5 free spins with an 8x multiplier

If you land 3 scatters on the same spin during the feature, the same number of free spins will be retriggered, complete with the accompanying multiplier. I would personally go for the 8x multiplier though – just hope you get the retrigger so you have 10 free spins.

We found the variance to be higher than some other Pragmatic Play slots – that combined with the relatively higher minimum spin of 50p means some careful bankroll management is advisable. Mighty Kong is a pretty good slot. The visuals are excellent backed by a thunderous, adventure style soundtrack.

The range of features may not be extensive but there’s enough to make this a very playable game. The stacked wilds help in the base game but Mighty Kong really comes alive in the Free Spins feature thanks to the potential on offer from the multipliers. Get lucky here and this big beast can deliver payouts to match. If you like the theme, I suggest Playtech’s King Kong which is the official movie game.
