Mighty Gorilla Slot Review

I don’t think there has ever been a funnier internet moment than the RIP Harambe saga.

For those not in the know (have you been living under a rock?), in 2016, a three-year-old boy climbed into a gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. He was grabbed by Harambe, a 17-year-old gorilla (typical teenager), and a zoo worker, fearing for the kid’s life, shot and killed our dear primate overlord.

While the situation that sparked the meme wasn’t funny (quite tragic, actually), the chaos that ensued on the internet was indeed something to behold.

From Elon Musk releasing a RIP Harambe rap to Harambe’s status as 2016’s meme of the year, internet culture truly knows how to turn a bad thing around.

I won’t be exploring gorilla territory anytime soon, so it’s nice to experience our hairier cousins via Mighty Gorilla slot from Booming Games - ideally, minus the shotgun and screaming toddler.


If Planet of the Apes keeps you up at night, this might not be the slot for you. This game is gorilla-heavy (no pun intended), with a jungle setting that’s quite immersive.

There are 6 reels and 30 paylines set against a waterfall backdrop. Don’t miss out on the two Wild symbols - represented by a realistic Wild barrel, plus a golden one. The Scatter is represented by the game’s logo and triggers Free Spins.

I expected Mighty Gorilla slot to do well as a mobile game, but I was a little disappointed. The reels occupy the top of the screen and are small - particularly when the phone is held vertically.

The RTP is set at 95.48%, which is pretty low, and the game has a high volatility rate. The maximum win is a generous €252,576, plus there’s a 1,403x multiplier.

The bet limit starts at €0.30 and ends at €180, so there’s quite an extensive range for players to choose from.


The first feature to take note of is the Random Wilds. One to 24 standard Wild symbols are dropped on the reels while they’re spinning, increasing the likelihood of substitution.

The Bursting Wilds feature will explode vertically, turning all of the symbols on their reel into Wilds. They can land on reels 2 to 6 during the main game and all of the reels during Free Spins.

The Minor Elimination feature can be triggered during the base game and Free Spins. All minor-paying symbols will be removed from the reels, triggering a cascade to fill all empty positions by either major, Wild, or Scatter symbols.

Free Spins can be activated in one of two ways:

3, 4, 5, or 6 Scatters will trigger 8, 12, 16, or 20 free spins, respectively.
The Buy Feature allows you to purchase Free Spins, after which 3 or more Scatters are guaranteed to land.


Mighty Gorilla slot offers seamless gameplay, with no glitches.

Maximum Win

The maximum win is €252,576, plus you can score a 1,403x multiplier. That’s generous by anyone’s standards.


I loved Mighty Gorilla slot. Packed with exciting features and generous wins, this game is one that I can truly recommend.

Booming Games has some excellent slots to choose from, and I think we can add this bad boy to the list. Not for the gorilla-phobic but for those of us who choose to embrace our primate cousins, it’s a real treat.
