Where to play?
Wild Ape is a medium variance 20 payline, 5 reel, jungle-themed video slot from software house, iSoftBet. Its top feature is a Free Spins bonus that rewards you with up to 20 free spins that’s played on an expanded reel set (40 paylines). Furthermore, up to a jaw-dropping 50 wilds can accompany each free spin win. The next bonus mode is the Wild Ape Re-spins while the top cash prize (non-progressive jackpot) is 1,000x your stake (£20,000). The slots can now be played at our leading iSoftBet Casinos.
Playable on mobile phones (Androids, iOS, tablets) from £0.20 to £20 per spin you’ll see symbols such as cards (10 to Ace), different kinds of animal symbols (high value), the ape and the wild. The most lucrative symbol is the ape, and when 5 of them appear on the reels, the payout is 25x your stake.
Online casino patrons who wager the maximum bet per spin will win £400 for 5. Other than performing its usual duty of symbol substitutions, the only drawback we found with the wild is that no pays are awarded for a bunch of them. When played at 24K Casino, Wild Ape has an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.01%.
Wild Ape has two bonus rounds, a Re-spins and a Free Spins feature. The Wild Ape Re-spins is triggered when three connecting reels are filled with the ape symbol giving you 3 re-spins. Each ape symbol becomes wild in the re-spins, and you’ll see them increase in size as the ape smashes the reels.
Wild Ape Free Spins
The bonus symbol is the scatter, and when it appears on reels 1, 3, and 5, it triggers the free spins. A new screen opens up that displays a Bonus Wheel. As you spin the wheel, the outer section of the wheel awards you with 6, 8, 10, 12, 15 up to a maximum of 20 free falls. The wilds added to each free spin can be anything from 10 to 50, and the reel set expands from 20 to 40 enhancing payline wins.
iSoftBet’s Wild Ape is not a pretty face, yet it sports a captivating reel mechanic that increases from 20 to 40 lines in the Free Spins. Both the re-spins and the free spins enable you to cash in on the wilds, and the best wins are reserved for the Free Spins thanks to a cracking 50 of them. The jackpot of 1,000x your stake may not be the best for high rollers; but if you are open-minded and looking for something a little different, you might have a ball.
