Just after you’ve opened the Planet of the Apes™ slot at one of the NetEnt Casinos, you can expect action and sensation on the reels and I expected nothing less from a cooperation between NetEnt and 20th Century Fox.
Over the years, NetEnt developed partnerships with some of the largest entertainment companies including South Park Digital Studios™, Global Merchandising Services & The emoji Company, Universal™, and 20th Century Fox. All of these partnerships lead to one or more fantastic branded slots games including Emojiplanet™, Dracula™, The Invisible Man™, Creature from the Black Lagoon™, Scarface™, and Frankenstein™ while in the autumn of 2017, the Planet of the Apes™ slot was added to the list as well.
Unfortunately, the Aliens™ slot left the stage, but I do remember an amazing game with several levels and lots of action on the reels. No doubt your adrenaline levels would have increased if this game was still available at the NetEnt Casinos, also developed in cooperation with 20th Century Fox.
Considering the fact that the Aliens™ slot isn’t available anymore, the Planet of the Apes™ slot will be the only branded slot developed in cooperation with 20th Century Fox. Again a spectacular game has been created and certainly one of the best games of 2017.
Initially, I was assuming the Planet of the Apes™ slot was going to be a Creature from the Black Lagoon™ type of video slot, based on the 1968 film. Instead, the game is a brilliant combination of the most recent releases: Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014).
Therefore, you’ll be taken on a journey between the two different phases of the Ape Army leader Caesar’s life resulting in two video slots combined. Besides the Rise and Dawn play areas, this exciting slot game will also offer 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. How much excitement and innovation would you like to see in a video slot?
The next generation video slots
Many great NetEnt Games have been launched in 2017 with the Planet of the Apes™ slot as one of the highlights. Announced together with the Emojiplanet™ slot, I expected the most of this emoji-themed game, but eventually, I was absolutely amazed by everything the Planet of the Apes™ slot has to offer.
Rarely do I see so many innovations in just one game and my video slot heart started to beat faster already while watching the Planet of the Apes™ preview video. What this video slot promised, came true and even more. The moment this NetEnt slot was launched at the online casinos, I was hypnotised by the many innovations. From apes climbing onto and the film footage available during the game, you won’t be bored, not even for a nanosecond. With the dual reels, combining the two movies, you can look forward to a truly unique Planet of the Apes experience.
The Planet of the Apes experience continues with the amazing high-quality graphics created with the latest HTML5 developing technology. Effects will be visible throughout every aspect of the game, no matter if you’re in the main game or free spins have been activated.
It all starts with a truly exciting video slot intro bringing you the best film footage and a preview of what to expect once the game starts. You’ll be captivated from the start and this experience continues as soon as the reels start to spin with the euphoric music adding to the action.
Become part of a journey between the two different phases of the Ape Army leader Caesar’s life while surrounded by the Rise and Dawn play areas and enjoy all the greatness the Planet of the Apes™ slot has to offer!
The list of slot features is long so I better keep this paragraph short, but not without letting you know there’s a choice between 10 different levels combined with 7 coin values. The minimum bet is 0.10 which is perfect for the careful-minded players while the thrill-seeker would love to play with the maximum bet of 200.00. Don’t worry if none of these fit your players’ profile as you can endless shift and combine until you find your perfect bet to play the Planet of the Apes™ slot with.
Planet of the Apes™ slot features
As mentioned before, the list of video slot features is endless with Rise Free Spins, Dawn Free Spins, Rise Bonus Feature, Dawn Bonus Feature, Bonus symbols, Scatter symbols, Wild substitutions, Stacked Wild feature, and the Dual feature. So where to start?
Let me start with page one of the Planet of the Apes™ feature guide showing two different Wild substitutions on for each of the play areas, Rise and Dawn. Both Wilds are worth the same but will appear in the different areas.
Followed by the Scatter, another pretty standard symbol in the NetEnt slot and the same goes for the Scatter as for the Wilds, available in two different types, one for each area and worth exactly the same.
Besides some standard ape symbols, the true list of slot features is led by the Dual feature of which I have to say it’s one of these typical innovations added by NetEnt to one of the video slots. This advanced slot feature can be triggered before each spin and if the Dual feature is triggered, one symbol is chosen for each play area aiming to collect as many of the same symbols in order to win big.
If the Rise Bonus symbol lands on the first reel, it will be responsible for the activation of the Rise Bonus feature resulting in an additional coin win being awarded for every human and ape symbol displayed on the reels in the Rise area.
On the other hand, when the Dawn Bonus symbol lands on the last reel, the Dawn Bonus
feature is triggered. Unlike the Rise Bonus feature, the Dawn Bonus feature is a feature that transforms ape and human symbols into the same symbol in the Dawn play area.
The Stacked Wild feature is triggered on the Rise play area when a reel is fully covered by Wilds. The Stacked Wilds are then duplicated onto the Dawn play area in the corresponding position.
Rise and Dawn Free Spins
I don’t know how much action a player is expecting, but lots of it will become reality when either the Rise Free Spins or Dawn Free Spins are activated when 3 or more Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels in the Rise play area or Dawn play area.
10 Rise Free Spins will be awarded while the Dawn Free Spins promise you an even more attractive number of 15 free spins.
Only the Rise play area or Dawn Play area will become active during the Rise or Dawn Free Spins.
During the Rise Free Spins, the number of Wild symbols that land on each spin are collected in a Wild meter on the screen. Each Wild symbol landing on reels will add to the meter by 1 and after the reels stop spinning all collected Wild symbols are randomly placed on the reels.
In the Dawn Free Spins feature, you’ll be able to collect 3 different symbols that activate a corresponding meter: Multiplier, Extra Wild, and Extra Free Spins. When a collect symbol lands, it fills the corresponding meter by 1 and when full, the particular feature will be activated. The Extra Free Spins meter awards 3 extra Free Spins every time it is filled.
With two play areas, the Planet of the Apes™ slot combines two movies bringing the slot revolution to new levels while raising the bar for future games. Lights, camera, and action, time to go for one of NetEnt’s most innovated blockbusters, the Planet of the Apes™ slot!
