Where to play?
Epic Ape is a 4,096 ways to win high variance Jungle themed video online slots with 6 reels that can be played across all devices (PC desktops and mobile phones) at a minimum wager of £0.25 up to £250 per spin at our best playtech online casinos. The Oxford dictionary describes ‘Epic’ in an informal sense as ‘particularly impressive or remarkable’.
Does Epic Ape live up to this? Let’s find out. It pays a top non-progressive jackpot of 300 coins, awards up to a mammoth 100 free spins (re-triggerable free spins) when 6 scatter icons appear and then there’s a diamond wild with 2x to 5x multipliers wins during the free spins – so far it’s looking good.
”High volatility action play from Playtech!”
Against the backdrop of the reels you’ll see the mighty African jungle, paying symbols on the reels are diamond wilds, black panther, leopard, gorilla, chameleon, frog and low value cards from 9 to Ace. The symbol that offers the highest payout is the gorilla, when 6 of them appear stacked at the maximum bet the payout is 300 coins.
When recommend that you bet on all 4,096 ways by ensuring that the ‘ALLWAYS’ feature is activated on all 6 reels. During a winning combination the highest possible combination is paid. Wins are paid from left to right. The usual customization options like Auto Play, Turbo Mode (spins the reels faster), audio, coin bet levels and ‘INFO’ (Paytable) allows you to adjust the slots to your style of play.
The wild symbol is the blue diamond when in a winning combination it substitutes symbols adjacent to it except the ‘Free Games’ scatter and pitches only on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. It’s during the free spins feature with multiplier wins of up to 5x that the wild really weaves its magic.
The free spins feature is initiated by 3 or more Free Spins logos plus the amount of free spins awarded are proportionate to the scatters. Note, an unlimited amount of free spins can be won making it a remarkable free spins bonus. The free spins are awarded as follow:
- 3 Scatters awards 8 free spins
- 4 Scatters awards 15 free spins
- 5 Scatters awards 25 free spins
- 6 Scatters awards 100 free spins
Now, when the diamond wild pops up during the free spins you can cash in on multiplier wins ranging from 2x, 3x to 5x. The best part is when another 2 or more scatters appear extra free spins will be given.
Because of its volatility Epic Ape plays like a progressive jackpot slots, payouts are far and few in between but tend to be good. As a rule of thumb we shy away from high variance games but this one will be a hit with high rollers.
Pay close attention to the diamond wild with its 5x multipliers during the free spins. Will we stick a pin in the Epic Ape? As reviewers yes but it’s a high rollers casino game – to be honest the volatility is a bit steep for us. The fact that an unlimited amount of free spins are awarded counts highly in its favour too but it’s not easy to trigger the bonus feature.+)
