Experience monkey madness in new game Epic Ape II slot!
Think of the term “gorilla” and you might conjure up that image of old King Kong, perched atop the Empire State Building, swatting biplanes, and waving scantily-clad women about (lucky fella!).
Or maybe you’ll reminisce about Koko, the sign language gorilla, or Binti Jua that saved a kid who dropped into her enclosure unannounced. All very cool primates these but we’ve discovered one that can make you rich!
So step aside primate has-beens, and get ready for the awesomeness that is Epic Ape II slot!
Score some wild wins with Jackpot Blitz
Epic Ape II slot is the successor to Playtech’s original version. Land on the lobby and you’ll see lush jungles and wild animals galore. The visuals are rich and highly detailed, and there are big buttons for “Information”, increasing or decreasing your bets, autoplay, and “Spin”. It means no digging around for settings and makes the whole experience user-friendly.
Above the reels, you’ll see the words “Blitz”, “Major”, “Minor” and “Mini” – but more on that in a minute.
When it comes to symbols, you’ll see the gorilla and his golden counterpart, a diamond Wild (which appears on reels 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 only), a Scatter which says “Free Games”, panther, leopard, chameleons, frogs and the usual Ace to 9 symbols.
Epic Ape II slot has a number of features, and we’ll kick off with Free Spins which give you a chance to upgrade the symbols into better (more valuable) ones. Next is the Epic Trigger Mode feature. Here, you’ll get 2 Scatters added to the reels. Land a third and you’ll be off to the races with the Epic Free Games feature.
In Epic Free Games, 3 Scatters gets you 8 Free Spins; 4 Scatters gets you 15; 5 Scatters secures 20 Free Spins and 6 Scatters pulls in a massive 100 Free Spins!
Take a bite out of these HUGE free spins
Now Free Spins is where you’ll get a chance to see the rare golden gorilla. Whenever he lands, he’ll be added to the meters above the reels that we mentioned earlier. Fill these up and the animal symbols get upgraded to the golden (top paying) gorilla symbol for the remainder of the Free Spins round!
So, it breaks down like this:
- 3 Golden Gorillas – Upgrades the frog symbol
- 4 Golden Gorillas – Upgrades the chameleon symbol
- 5 Golden Gorillas – Upgrades the panther symbol
- 6 Golden Gorillas – Upgrades the leopard symbol
Each time you do an upgrade, you’ll score 2 extra Free Spins!
Now we come to the biggest and best feature of the game – the Jackpot Blitz feature – which can trigger completely randomly on any paid spin! Now you’ll be taken to a new screen and you’ll have to pick between 20 diamonds on the reels.
Hidden behind the diamonds are the Mini, Minor, Major, and Blitz jackpots – the selfsame ones we saw above the reels initially. If you choose 3 matching icons, that’s the prize you’ll get!
Unleash the beast!
Epic Ape II slot is an enjoyable game to play and of course, a lot of that awesomeness is a direct result of the Jackpot Blitz, €185,210 top prize, 4,096 ways to win, and high volatility – all of which means you could make some serious money while being entertained.
The only downside really is the 94.99% RTP, which could have been better, but such is life. If you enjoyed this game, then why not give its predecessor, Epic Ape slot a try or have a go at Spirit of the Beast slot.
