King Kong Fury
NextGen’s King Kong Fury slot is set in a high-danger world of prehistoric dinosaurs, a giant marauding gorilla, he of the game’s title and a poor maiden in distress. This is a game inspired by a mega movie (like other classics such as the Jumanji slot, Jurassic World and Terminator 2), and in this case the big-budget Kong: Skull Island and the super visuals are in the same vein as the cinematic hit- but don’t worry you to don’t need to go to the flicks to be part of this high-octane slot drama.
Look and feel
The reels are set against a wild terrain of jungle and mountains, the inhospitable home of all the action and its accompanying fear-inducing creatures! The reels are set in a stone frame covered in creepers.
Background music is just like that of an action movie, it sets the scene and the tempo of play. It’s sometimes gentle pan pipes and sometimes pounding drama. It’s only when you fire King Kong up next to a more traditional game like the Age of Egypt slot machine do you realise how far slots design has come in such a short space of time. Impressive!
King Kong Fury is a four rows, 5 reels and a big 50 paylines slot set to deliver you a few scares!
The high value icons are a cast of the creepiest creatures possible and appear all too dramatically created, with loads of colour and scary detail including a T-Rex, Triceratops, Pterodactyl, a giant serpent and mutant stick insect. The lower value icons are the Ace through 9 of the card deck in a jungle-tastic font. While we’re hear, we must just mention the King Kong Cash slot by Blueprint Gaming. That’s also worth a go! Anyway, we digress…
The Wild is an appropriately frightening image of the toothsome roaring King Kong and this subs for all icons except the Scatter, but only pops up on reels 2, 3 and 4. The Scatter/Bonus is a busty maiden in distress, but she only crops up on reels 1 and 5.
This adventurous slot also has two welcome games in the base game that are both randomly triggered.
First up, there’s Lightening Reel. This eye-catching little side game, where during a spin up to 15 of those horrid creatures (not Kong) can turn up on the reels, overlaying the icons beneath them to make up more winning chances for you.
Then there’s Kong’s Call. Randomly at the end of a spin, up to 12 Wilds are added to reels 2, 3 and 4 to help you to make more winning combos. Thanks big guy!
Spinning all the way to the bank!
If you can land the Scatter on reels 1 and 5 then you activate the King of Skull Island bonus bonanza which delivers tasty free spins, the number of these which can be as high as 100 is determined by two special statue reels covered in numbers that you spin. The number is then multiplied and this is what determines the spins you’re awarded.
During this mode, there is a nifty extra gift in store in the form of a Raging-Re-spin. If Lady Luck helps you to land four Wilds on the same reel, you’re gifted a free spin. If you can land more full stacks of Wilds then you get an additional free spin and this stacked Wild sticks around for the rest of those spins, making for more chances for winning combos.
This game is an action movie slot dream, with the good looks and sound that take you straight into the less than salubrious Skull Island, not a top travel destination! Beauty aside, this is a game with a generous enough bonus game to give you a generous multiplier, and those two base games keep the action coming. King Kong Fury is a fun visit to action land with some coins for your adventurous reward!
