Gorilla Slot Review

Gorilla is an absolutely stunning slot machine from Novomatic which takes us deep into the heart of the African Jungle where we come face to face with the massive mammals who are guarding Ancient Golden Icons – which you’re on the hunt for and clinching them results in huge wins on the reels!

This is without doubt one of the best animal themed slots I have encountered and it is a vast improvement Novomatic's African Simba and their Buffalo Thunder slot machine. With the beautiful African wilderness as the backdrop, Gorilla contains symbols as detailed as a photograph, jungle sounds which fit the theme perfectly, the standard gamble feature customary in Novomatic slots, plus a fantastic free spins mode which promises Gorilla sized wins!

Gorilla Sized Bets

Gorilla has a 5 reel and 50 payline structure which will suit the high rollers amongst you, however those of you who enjoy low limit slots won’t be so pleased. The stake per line options range from 1 up to 50 therefore all paylines can only be played for a minimum of 50 coins which may be out of budget for some of you, while a maximum of 2500 coins can be spun for those of you who enjoy Gorilla sized bets!

Jungle Symbols and Sounds

As already alluded to, the symbols in Gorilla are absolutely fantastic – so detailed and realistic looking. The Ancient Golden Icon is the games Wild symbol which substitutes for any others on the reel apart from the Scatter – which is the African Sunset inside the outline of Africa. The detailed face of a Gorilla is next along with two types of tropical birds, two colourful flowers, and completing the line-up of thirteen symbols are the Ace to 9 playing cards.

Huge wins up for grabs with stacked Wilds when the Gorilla falls on the reels with five a payline resulting in your balance bulging with a 20x win, but even bigger prizes are on offer when you cover every reel position with a tribe of Gorillas – an instant jackpot prize of 1000x your line bet. Not surprisingly the 10 and 9 playing cards have the lowest value of all, worth a meagre 4x when five land on a payline.

I’ve always been a critic of the standard sounds Novomatic use in many of their slot machines which detracts from the theme, however they have nailed the sounds in Gorilla. Throughout gameplay you will enjoy the sounds of exotic birds whistling deep in the wilderness which really gives you a feel for the Jungle atmosphere – nicely done!

Free Spins

Landing a Scatter symbol (African Sunset in the shape of Africa) on reels 1, 2 and 3 in the same spin will see you whisked off to the heart of the jungle to enjoy 10 free spins, plus you are instantly rewarded with a 4x win for doing so. On top of this you are joined by an Ancient Golden Icon (the Wild) in a random spot on the second, third, fourth, or fifth reel in an attempt to achieve more winning combinations and take your wins to new heights.

Gamble with the Gorilla

If you know how online slots work you will need no introduction to the gamble feature. It’s an option which is available to you after any base game win to turn those small Monkey sized wins into huge Gorilla sized wins. All you need to do is select whether a playing card with a Gorilla in a King Kong pose will be red or black.

The card rapidly flicks between both colours only stopping when you make your choice – with a correct decision doubling your winnings, while an incorrect one sees you lose them all. The last five results are also displayed so if you’re a fan of trends they may help you with your decision.

Gorilla is Great!

Gorilla really is great! Not only does it boast stunning visuals on the backdrop of the jungle it also features life-like symbols accompanied by sounds which make you feel like you’re in the heart of the jungle.

The gamble feature is a common fixture in Novomatic to help boost wins, but the biggest wins come from the free spins mode where an additional Wild joins you on the reels. However my favourite part is the animations which play out after every winning combination – for example a win with the Gorilla symbols sees it beat its chest in true ape style.

For those of you who prefer licensed slots check out Playtech’s Kong: 8th Wonder of the World which is based on the popular movie that was released in 2005 and contains characters as symbols on the reels along with offocial scenes from the movie.
