A recently announced slot machine from NextGen Gaming, King Kong Fury is based on the popular ape-like monster that has been part of multiple movies and games which are similar to this one in theme. It’s a pretty ambitious project from the guys working at NextGen, and it does quite well feature wise. The 2017 film, Kong: Skull Island, has been the main source of inspiration for this slot.
You are going to be playing a game with 5 reels, where 50 active lines are employed. As I mentioned above, it’s a game that does quite well feature wise, employing wild symbols, random bonus games, bonus symbols, a lot of free spins and even Raging Re-Spins for them. The game’s jackpot, taking all the available lines into account, could go even up to $250,000.
Betting and Prizes
When you’re playing a game like this, where the number of lines is fixed, all you have to do is modify the total wager, which will have a starting point of $0.25 and a maximum possible value of $500. Since you use 25 coins, your line bet should be set to $20 automatically when you’re at the highest setting.
Usually, you’re going to look only at the slot’s best winning combo, and in this case it will be set to 250x the line bet. Since the stacked wild symbols can appear in large numbers during the free spins, you could be looking at as much as 12,500x your stake, or up to $250,000.
King Kong Fury Slot Features
A major strength for this game is the feature list that NextGen implemented in it. It starts with a wild symbol, a feature that you expect to get from most slots, and in this particular case the role has been given to Kong. Acting as a replacement for all symbols, with the exception of the Bonus scatter, the wild can become very useful during the free spins.
Moving on to bonus features, two of them are going to be randomly triggered and they will help out from time to time. Lightning Reels are one possibility, and if this feature triggers you get a maximum of 15 beast symbols added to the five reels, with a big potential for wins.
Another random occurrence will be the bonus called Kong’s Call, where you hear how the creature is summoned through a chant, after which 12 wilds will be added to the reels for that spin.
The best feature that the game can offer is the one revolving around the free spins, which are called King of Skull Island. The symbol with the ability of the bonus trigger is going to show you a character from the film, Anne Darrow. When she is on the reels 1 and 5, you get a prize at first, followed by a spin of the statue reels. They can give you numbers between 3 and 10, and they will be multiplied with each other next. You can win anywhere between 9 (3x3) and 100 (10x10) free spins.
Raging Re-Spins are offered during the free games, involving full stacks of wilds that remain locked on their reels, with new stacks triggering yet more re-spins.
Theme & Design
The theme of King Kong Fury comes as an offer to players that have enjoyed the 2017 film, Kong: Skull Island. It uses a mix of playing cards and beasts that were part of the movie, including King Kong, a T-Rex, a pterodactyl, snakes, bugs and a triceratops.
King Kong Fury is a game that’s worth checking out, with a long list of features that makes it quite exciting to play.
