Few movies are more classic than King Kong. Although opinion on whether the recent remake did justice to the original is divided, the jury is sure to be less split on the Kong 8th Wonder of the World slot from Playtech. As is the case with a lot of the newer games out there, this gargantuan slot combines an excellent presentation with a boatload of features to offer a game that, like Kong himself, is larger than life!
The first that will take you aback in this 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Playtech is the excellent presentation, which itself is highlighted by the superb graphics and cool effects. Each time you create a winning spin you will be treated to a cool animation of some kind. As for the graphics, they are crafted very well and borrow motifs from the recent remake of the classic film.
The most appealing, unique aspect of the game, though, is its multitude of unique bonuses. It has a wild jungle respin feature, big city and jungle modes, a skull bonus, and a city tower bonus. Sound like a lot to handle? Well, what could be more appropriate for a Kong-themed game?
Learning how to get things going here is the easy part; figuring out the plethora of a bonus requires a bit more concentration. The first thing you need to know is that the game goes back and forth between the jungle and big city modes.
The first bonus of note in the jungle mode is the jungle respin feature. Three or more Kongs in the jungle mode will award you 3 free spins with sticky wilds. Meanwhile, three game logo symbols while in this mode sends you into the skull island bonus, where your goal is to match animals for big prizes.
Once you have made your way to the big city, three Kongs earn you entry into the wild Kong respin bonus. During this cool feature, different reels alternate serving as wilds. Lastly, three Kong symbols while in the big city will have you start a game where you control an angry Kong trying to bring down planes while atop a skyscraper!
