Where to play?
Slot releases based on Hollywood blockbuster films are just as impressive as their film namesakes, especially to slots aficionados like us.
Not wanting to sound presumptuous we’re confident that NetEnt’s Planet of the Apes is going to be the one we’ve all been waiting for. Based on the 20th Century Fox films: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Rise of the Planet of the Apes it’s decked out with 40 paylines, 10 reels and pays a top non-progressive jackpot of 1,000 coins. RTP: TBA.
”NetEnt fused two of the three Apes trilogy movies that started in 2011 into a mammoth video slot and named it after the original film of 1968.”
If you feel that the developer stretched itself a tad thin there’s no reason to be concerned. Thing is not only does it catch your eye but it’s two slots rolled into one with 5 bonus features! Talking of which, it contains transforming symbols, stacked wilds, cash prizes are awarded for ape and human symbols plus 3 awesome free spins features.
The first is the ‘Rise Free Spins’ feature where you get 10 free spins with a wild on your last free spin. The second free spins mode is the ‘Dawn Free Spins’ that awards 15 free spins featuring additional wilds with multiplier wins of up to 5x. The top cash prize that can be won on a single spin here is 3,000x your stake. The third and final free spins feature is the ‘Multiple Free Spins’ where you get to play both free spins modes.
The game is playable on mobile phones or PC desktops from 20 pence up to £200 per spin at our best ranked Netent Casino Sites. Symbols that appear on the reels are cards from 10 to Ace, clips from the actual films, actors from both films and did we mention that the visuals are top draw further augmented by a cracking soundtrack.
Let’s have a look at the game mechanic quick. There are 2 reels sets, each has 20 paylines, 5 reels plus they contain elements of both Planet of the Ape films. Up to 20 coins can be wagered per line, as you increase/decrease your line bet your average bet per spin will be adjusted automatically.
The wild symbol is Caesar’s attic window it completes a winning combination when it replaces symbols adjacent to it bar the bonus and scatter symbols. The Stacked Wild feature is triggered when the wild pitches as fully stacked in the Rise Play area. There’s an interesting game mechanic at play here too. On the corresponding reel set (Dawn Play) the stacked wild will then be duplicated.
The Rise Bonus mode is activated the moment the Rise Bonus symbol pops up on the first reel. For every ape and human symbol that pitches a cash prize is awarded. You can win up to 79.5x your stake.
When the Dawn Bonus symbol appears on the last reel the Danw Bonus mode is played. In the Dawn play are both ape and human symbols are morphed into the same symbols. Symbol bar the scatter are randomly selected, the top cash prize that can be won here is 1,200x your stake.
The Dual bonus mode is randomly triggered, although 1 symbol is selected randomly the same symbol cannot appear on both reel sets. Now, should it appear on the other reel set it becomes sticky in effect awarding 1 re-spin. The re-spins will keep on being rewarded as long as new symbols on both reel sets are added. You can win as much as 1,000x your line bet here.
Rise Free Spins
The Rise Free spins feature is triggered by 3 or more scatters but the must pop up in the Rise play area, 10 free spins will be given. During this free spins mode wilds are stored and collected in the ‘Wild Meter’. Wilds will then be added to the play area on the last free spins, you can win 600x your stake on a single free spin.
Dawn Free Spins
When 3 or more Dawn scatters pitch in the play area they trigger the Dawn Free spins feature, for your trouble you’ll receive 15 free spins. There’s a slight catch here. In order to gain the maximum out of this feature you must collect 3 different symbols that will trigger the Extra Wild, Extra Free Spins Meter and Multiplier.
It works like this. The corresponding meter is filled by 1 when a ‘collect’ symbol pops up on the reels. Once the meter is filled, 3 additional free spins with multipliers that range from 1x to 5x are awarded along with a human symbol that acts as an extra wild. Hit the multiplier of 5x additional free spins will be added to your tally. Thanks to the multiplier of 5x, payouts on a single free spin can be as high as 3,000x (600,000 in cash) your stake.
Multiple Free Spins
When 3 or more scatters appears in both play areas this free spins feature is triggered. Both the Rise Free Spins and Dawn Free Spins bonus modes can be played short on the heels of each other.
