Kong Slot Machine Review

Kong is a Playtech video slot based on the hit King Kong film released in 2005 that starred Naomi Watts, Jack Black and Adrien Brody. The game joins a growing list of move theme slots that Playtech have released including the popular Gladiator and Rocky slots.

Kong is a feature packed game with two pick a box style bonuses, two different game modes and two types of free spins. To get in on the action you can choose from coin sizes starting at 0.01 and going up to 2.00 at most casinos. Maximum bet is 20 coins per spin so the minimum all lines bet is just 0.20 per spin.

The game has two game modes known as Big City Mode and Jungle Mode. Both represent scenes from the movie and both offer two unique bonuses. While the modes look very different the actual line wins are the same in both modes.

The King Kong symbol is the wilds and substitutes for everything but the scattered Kong logos. The wild King Kong symbols offer the highest line win of 3,000 coins with four also offering a nice pay of 1,000 coins. Like several other Playtech games the King Kong symbols are also scatters with three or more anywhere activating a free spins bonus.

After the top pays for the wilds you have several other good wins on the reels with the characters from the films making up the next highest pays. These wins include 1,000 coins for five Ann Darrow symbols (Naomi Watts), 600 coins for five Jack Driscoll symbols (Adrien Brody), 500 coins for five Carl Denham symbols (Jack Black) and 300 for five Captain Englehorn symbols (Thomas Kretschmann).

The A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols make up all of the lower line wins with five of a kind pays ranging from 150 to 30 coins.

On to the game modes. You start off in Jungle Mode and move to Big City Mode when you get three or more of the scattered Kong logos anywhere on the screen. In fact every time you get three or the Kong scatters you switch modes. The good news is that for each mode switch you have a great pick a box style second screen stage.

Jungle Mode - Set in the jungle of Skull Island, in this mode three or more of the King Kong symbols anywhere on the screen activates the Wild Jungle Re-Spins. Here you win 3 free spins with sticky wilds where any wild appearing on the screen is held for the remaining spins. This clearly makes getting five wilds a lot easier on the free spins compared to regular play.

Getting three or more of the scattered Kong logos in Jungle Mode activates the Skull Island Bonus. Here you are transferred to a second screen where you have an island and have to pick locations until you either uncover Kong or match three dinosaurs (Preview). You will always win between 10X and 30X your total bet.

Big City Mode - Set in New York City, three or more King Kong symbols anywhere on the screen activates the Wild Kong Re-Spins. Again you get 3 free spins but this time you get certain reels wild for each of the free games. On spin one you have reels 1 and 5 wild, on spin two you have reels 2 and 4 wild and on the final spin you have reels 1, 3 and 5 wild. With the wild reels you can hit some impressive wins on more than one line at a time.

During regular play three or more of the scattered Kong logos during Big City Mode activates the City Tower Bonus. This bonus is very similar looking to the bonus on King Kong from Cryptologic. You have King Kong on the top of the Chrysler building and get to pick directions to hit planes (Preview) . Each hit awards an instant win.

Overall, Kong - The Eighth Wonder of the World is an impressive online slot. The two game modes make great use of the movie theme and the various types of bonus features really keep things interesting. While the game may not have the biggest jackpots we've seen it does provide a very entertaining experience which is what slots are all about.
