King Kong Fury is a NextGen Gaming slots with 50 paylines, 4 rows, 5 reels, it’s based on the 2017 Hollywood blockbuster film Kong: Skull Island. The game art of the slots is good which is set against the backdrop of a tropical island. It offers a jaw-crushing non-progressive jackpot of 12,500x your stake on a single spin. The theme of the game sees King Kong battle against massive dinosaurs for survival.
King Kong Fury has 2 bonus rounds during the base game that’s triggered randomly. Fifteen beast and 12 wild symbols are added to the reels for the bigger wins. The most important bonus round is the King of Skull Island Free Games that awards an unlimited amount of free spins along with stacked wilds that awards re-spins (Raging Re-spins). The smallest bet per spin is 25 pence up to £500 playable on all devices (mobile phones and PC desktops).

The T-rex symbol offers the best payout, 5 of them at the maximum bet pays 10x your stake. The average return to player percentage of King Kong Fury is 95.8% or an edge to the house of 4.2%.
King Kong Fury has a couple of bonus features during the main game which we’ll discuss in a bit. High rollers can try and hit the maximum jackpot of 12,500x your stake at £500 per spin. Players small bankrolls can play it at £0.75 up to £2.50. We find that the video slot pays relatively well within this betting range and it’s not too steep on the pocket.
The Lightning Reel feature adds as many as 15 beast symbols to the reels, basically a beast is selected which results in a decent payout.
The Kong symbol is the wild it substitutes symbols adjacent to it bar the bonus symbol. There’s more to it than what meets the eye. When a native’s chants on a spin, Kong is summoned which adds a hefty 12 wilds to the reels, suffice to say the payout can be huge.
King of Skull Free Spins
This is the money or business end of the slots since it’s the most lucrative bonus round. The bonus symbol (Anne Darrow) is the scatter responsible for triggering the free spins when it appears on reels 1 and 5.
What ensues next is quite interesting. In order to determine the amount of free spins you’ll get you must spin the statue reels, you can win anything from 3 to 10 free spins where the values are multiplied: 4×4, 5×5 or 10×10. You can win up to a mammoth 100 free spins, by the way it’s a re-triggerable free spins feature.
The free spins has more bite to it thanks to the Raging Re-spins feature, plus the bonus modes that appear during the base game can be triggered during the free spins too! It’s triggered when a wild stack appears which offers a re-spin, the more wild stacks that pitch the more re-spins can be awarded.
Kong Island is a well-balanced slots with a lot of bonus features and massive cash prizes. The bigger wins are reserved for the free spins where you can win an amazing 12,500x your stake on a single free spins/re-spin.
It takes a bit of grunt to trigger the free spins but if you stick around it’s well worth it. Another game by NextGen that we’d like to recommend is 300 Shields.. It’s a high variance slots that’s perfect for players with sturdy bankrolls.
