More than once, we saw wild animals making an appearance on the reels in a NetEnt slot in 2020. At the beginning of the year NetEnt launched the Serengeti Kings™ slot while during the Covid-19 pandemic, Gorilla Kingdom™ made it to the NetEnt Casinos. Add to that NetEnt slots such as Jungle Spirit™ or Jumanji™, and you’ll know wild animals are in good hands at NetEnt. There’s no software developer that brings these animals to live on the reels the way NetEnt does! Time to get lost in the deepest of the jungle!
In the jungle, the mighty jungle…
A rainforest is a majestic place with trees reaching higher than some of the highest towers built by humans. At the bottom of these trees, another type of natural world is to be found. This world is packed with thousands of creatures crawling around. Around all that, another thousand species are flying around including birds and insects. However, what amazes us most, in general, are the mammals including giraffes, antelopes, hippopotamuses, okapis, elephants, and wild cats like the leopard and the lion. Then there’re the monkeys and the great apes including the chimpanzee and the gorilla.
The list of mammals of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is long, intensely long and only a tiny fraction of the mammals found in the rainforest in and around Congo has been used for the Gorilla Kingdom™ slot. In the spotlights, you’ll see gorilla, leopard, hornbill, the okapi and world’s most trafficked mammal, the pangolin. All of them are endangered or close to be endangered thanks to humans’ greediness.
It’s therefore that I respect NetEnt for putting these animals in the spotlights as their beauty deserves more attention! We need to find a way to protect these animals better so the images used will always be based on existing animals, not extinct animals!
When it comes to the Gorilla, it’s mainly Congo that’s home to these great apes. The gorilla has been decreasing in numbers for decades, and a United Nations report suggests that they may disappear from large parts of the Congo Basin by the mid-2020s. However, conservation efforts by WWF, other organizations, and governments resulted in new protected areas to be designated. Some gorilla populations have continued to increase in recent years. This has been leading to its downlisting from Critically Endangered to Endangered in 2018.
What a gorilla kingdom looks like
Since April 2020, you can experience a gorilla’s kingdom in one of NetEnt’s innovative games. This game is taking you to the deepest of the Congolian jungle. And it’s clearly the kingdom of the gorilla, the reason the gorilla is the highest paying symbol. However, all wild animals used for the Gorilla Kingdom™ have an important role to play. Each of them will be available for symbol transformations during Free Spins.
Get yourself to the midst of the lush wilderness in the Gorilla Kingdom™ slot to admire the majestic wild animals without disturbing them in their natural habitat. They deserve to be left alone and when you do, I’m sure Mother Nature will at one point award you with three or more Blue Diamonds in return. The excitement will grow, and you’re invited to witness the beauty of the jungle with a chance to win big.
In 2020, more and more games were offering nothing more than coin values. Gorilla Kingdom™ is one of them. This exciting video slot doesn’t bring you the old-fashioned 10 levels and coin values. Instead, 29 coin values have been added for you to create your preferred bet. You can choose to play with the minimum coin value of 0.01 for a minimum bet of 0.10 while the highest coin value is responsible for a maximum bet of 350.00. The game doesn’t involve win lines as any winning combination from left to right is a winning one. This is due to the 1024 ways to win available in Gorilla Kingdom™.
Gorilla Kingdom™ features
I don’t know what it is that attracts me in video slots packed with wild animals! I love wild animals in their natural habitat, that’s for sure. But the rich gameplays used in each of these games must play an important role as well. There’s the infamous board game used in Jumanji™ and five different Free Spins features to choose from in Jungle Spirit™. This while Gorilla Kingdom™ is offering symbol transformations!
With engaging mechanics aiming for simplicity, the Gorilla Kingdom™ appeals to a broader audience. While simplicity is aiming for a wide player range, the ability to win big during the Free Spins feature might attract some experienced players as well.
Three diamond symbols during the main game will lead you to this Free Spins feature with 10 to 20 Free Spins to be awarded. This depends on the number of Scatter Diamonds involved. Ancient Gorilla Masks will fly from the reels to be collected on the side. These masks will eventually be used to transform the leopard, the hornbill, the okapi, and the pangolin into Gorillas! Collect all 24 Gorilla Masks to transform all 4 of these animals into the high-paying gorilla symbol for massive wins!
During the main game, you’re basically waiting for three or more Scatters to appear with no Wild in sight this time. To keep the main game captivating, NetEnt planted an abundance of gorillas on the reels for a chance to win big while waiting for the Free Spins feature to be activated.
