While playing this game, you won’t only have a set of visually pleasing symbols, but intriguing special features as well. For example, you’ll find that there is a wild icon present on its reels. This is the wooden barrel, which can substitute for all other icons on the reels. The only exception to this rule is the bonus scatter addition. Five of the wild icons showing up on a winning pay line will present you with a maximum reward of 500 times your total wager.
And speaking of the game’s bonus scatter icon, this is the image of King Kong himself. Three or more of these symbols coming into view in any location will trigger the King Kong Bonus feature. Simply move up the ladder that can be seen in order to win one of five different bonus rounds. These are:
- Barrel Blast. A cannon will shoot barrel wilds onto the reels, which will explode. These will reveal matching symbols underneath, as the reels cascade.
- King Kong Trail. This is exactly like playing a game of Donkey Kong. You’ll get to choose from four different barrels. Two of them allow you to move forward and two of them are bombs. Each time that you advance will increase the win that you receive.
- Empire Free Spins. There are three different levels of reels for you to climb in this round, all of which are on the Empire State Building. You receive 10 freespins initially, and if you manage to collect three golden monkey icons during this, you will move on to the next reel set. The bottom reel set has floating wilds, the middle provides accumulating wilds, while the top reel set offers up expanding wilds.
- Golden Kong Spins. This 10 freespins round has double the amount of pay lines within it. Each Kong symbol that you collect comes into play at the end of the round as random multiplying wilds.
- Big Money Bonus. This simply gives you the chance to multiply your overall wager by up to 1,000 times!
Finally, as we said earlier, King Kong can be seen sleeping at the left hand side of the reels during your gameplay. He can wake up at random though, and he will activate one of five Monkey Modifiers. These are the Banana Cannon Wilds, Golden Barrel Super Spin, Bonus Boost, Kong Re-Spin or King Kong Streak.
