Gorilla Slot Review
Gorilla is a very visually pleasing Novomatic slot game. It provides players with a very authentic tropical feel thanks to the beautiful, very detailed backdrop. It showcases the dense jungle greenery, hidden away behind a veil of mist. The reels provide some rather interesting graphics, as well. You will find some brightly colored regular playing card symbols that appear to be carved out of wood. They also have some tribal markings on them, just to add some more to the general atmosphere. Some tropical bird sounds will be there to accompany the flamboyant avifauna on the reels. And of course, the mighty gorilla – star of the show – will be there, too. Don’t expect too much from the animated sequences, though – they’re not the real accent here.
Gorilla features 5 reels and 4 rows, whereas the number of total paylines is 50. You are free to adjust those as you please. Furthermore, the RTP of this game is roughly 95%, and you can bet in the range of 50p up to £50 per spin.
A golden mask acts as the game’s Wild symbol and can replace any of the other symbols to make up winning sequences. Naturally, this doesn’t apply for the Scatter symbol in this game, which is in the shape of an African map. Keep an eye out for the Wild, though, as filling the screen with it can win you 50,000 coins!
But more interestingly, the Scatter symbol can trigger Gorilla’s cool bonus feature. You will need to land three of a kind anywhere on the reels to activate it. As a result, you will receive a total of 10 freespins. In addition, if you spin another 3 Scatters on the reels during the bonus feature, this will award you an extra 5 freespins on top. So all in all, you have the chance of scoring 15 freespins.
And there’s even more to make this bonus feature all the more appealing. Each freespin will add a Wild symbol to the reels. More specifically, it will appear on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5 to make for even bigger win opportunities.
And what’s a good game without an interesting side game, right? Novomatic has included a gamble feature to spice the gameplay in Gorilla up a bit. Each time you win, you can either collect your wins or gamble them. Gambling your wins will give you the option of multiplying your wins two, four, six or even more times. Just select the ‘Gamble’ option that is beside the spin button.
A new screen will offer you the customary side game of guessing the correct card color. Your options are black and red, and a correct answer will double your amount. Depending on the initial winning sum, you may have several attempts at this game, so be careful. A wrong guess will render all your winnings from that spin void.
Gorilla is a bit dated visually, however, it still makes for a very decent slot. Gameplay is well-paced and fairly exciting. This game is a medium to high variance one and can really make for some nice winnings.
