Planet of the Apes™ online slot brings Dual Reels to the NetEnt Casinos
It was during ICE 2017 in February that the Planet of the Apes™ online slot was announced already. Months and months of hard work followed and the result is, in my opinion, brilliant. Based on the two latest Planet of the Apes film releases: Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014), the Planet of the Apes™ online slot takes you on a journey between the two different phases of the Ape Army leader Caesar’s life.
Packed with video slot features
I’m not 100% sure with so many games launched in the past years, but I believe none of the 150+ slots available at the NetEnt Casinos has been enriched with such a great number of slot features as the Planet of the Apes™ online slot. The list is so long, it took me quite a few words to describe them all in the Planet of the Apes™ online slot review which was published today.
An extended description of all of these features are available in the review, so I’m going to save myself from going there again, but I do owe you a summary of what to expect from the Planet of the Apes™ online slot features available.
Opening the newest NetEnt slot, you’ll notice the remarkable layout straight away. With its dual reels, the Planet of the Apes™ online slot combines two movies. This results in two play areas, both consisting of a standard 5×3 layout with the golden side (left) named Rise and the red side (right) side known as Dawn. Besides the game featuring the dual reels, you can also look forward to the Rise and Dawn Free Spins, Bonus symbols, Scatter symbols, Wild substitutions, a Stacked Wild feature, a Dual feature and the Rise and Dawn Bonus features. If that isn’t the longest list of slot features ever!
Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said: “Planet of the Apes™ is one of the most popular film franchises ever created and we are confident players around the globe will find our latest title just as immersive and exciting as the films. The value for an operator with this 50-year series of films is the loyal audience that spans generations — meaning it has the potential to attract a broad range of players. The quality of this latest edition adds a new dimension to casino gaming and further strengthens our award-winning portfolio. The game studio has worked on the title for months and the industry’s top experts have been involved in its creation. We can’t wait to deliver the ultimate entertainment experience as players discover the Planet of the Apes™ online slot.”
How the bar is raised for iGaming developers
Over the years, NetEnt developed many video slots in partnership with well-known entertainment companies. Video slots were developed with South Park Digital Studios™, Global Merchandising Services & The emoji Company, Universal™, and 20th Century Fox. These partnerships, in cooperation with NetEnt’s team of talented developers, always ended up in blockbusters like this is the case with the Planet of the Apes™ online slot which has been developed in partnership with 20th Century Fox.
With NetEnt releasing the Planet of the Apes™ online slot and Planet of the Apes Touch® today, it’s obvious that the company is raising the bar again for their team, but also for the competition. The game is bringing a new kind of innovation to the reels now known as the Dual Reels while advanced animations and lots of special effects are adding to the slot experience. This together with the upcoming Finn and the Swirly Spin™ slot that will be released on the 23rd of November, NetEnt isn’t only giving its competition a hard time, but it’s also raising the bar for its own company and its developers.
