Gorilla is an online video slot produced by Novomatic. It is set against the backdrop of dense and lush African jungle and has 50 paylines and 5 reels. It features colorful birds, a golden African mask, flowers, card symbols from 9 to Ace and of course, the almighty gorilla. The slot game’s theme is centered around a Silverback gorilla in its natural environment. It also happens to be the highest paying symbol in the game.
Gorillas are primarily ground-dwelling herbivorous primates that are categorized into two species: the Eastern and Western gorillas. They live in the tropical rain forests of Central Africa. A fully-grown male can weigh as much as 350 pounds. This slot would remind players of Gorillas In The Mist. Yes, it’s an old movie that featured Sigourney Weaver in the lead. She played the role of a staunch conservationist who is trying to protect these magnificent animals from being slaughtered by humans.
The game’s soundtrack features different animal sounds like that of birds, monkeys and crickets chirping. It’s not often the mighty Silverback gorilla invites you into his kingdom in pursuit of hidden treasures so once he does, you better not hesitate to heed it.
Gorilla is one of the older Novomatic slots but punters would no doubt thoroughly enjoy playing it. One can say it offers some form of escapism from the concrete jungle to one that’s teeming with natural wildlife. If you play the game after dark, it is strongly advised that you turn off the lights and turn up the audio. The soundtrack is soothing and would teleport you to a land far, far away.
There are 13 symbols in Gorilla and a winning combination is when two or more identical icons land along an active payline. All winning combinations must start with the leftmost reel. The symbols are a monkey, birds, flowers and the traditional playing card symbols of A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9. The wild is a mask and it replaces any symbol except for the Scatter. The Scatter is a map of Africa and it has its own multipliers.
Aside from the magnificent payouts during the main game, the strength of this online slot lies in its free spins. The free spins bonus game is activated by three African continents or the scatters. You’ll receive 10 free games but the scatters must appear on reels 1, 2 and 3.
While the free spins are active, an additional five free spins could be won when 3 or more scatter icons appear. Potentially, you could win up to 15 free spins. Now, this is where the game becomes truly lucrative. When an additional wild appears in conjunction with a free spin, be it on reels 2, 3, 4, or 5, you could win a huge amount of cash.
When any winning combination lands on the game screen, you have the option of starting the gamble game. If you do not want to risk your winnings, you can just hit the Collect button. If you decide to play the game, you need to click the Gamble button. A facedown card will appear on the screen and you need to guess the color of the card. To choose the color, click the red or black buttons that are on the game screen and the control panel. If you guess correctly, the win for the latest combination would be doubled. However, be wary that if you guess wrong, your winnings would be lost and you would return to normal mode.
At the top of the gambling game screen, you will see the five previously guessed cards and two windows. One says "Gamble amount" and shows the amount you are gambling with and the other says "Gamble to win" which displays the amount that would be received if you correctly guess the card color.
