There isn’t a person in the world who hasn’t heard of King Kong at least once in their lives and NextGen’s attempt to appeal to a wider audience through a universally accepted subject could be perceived as playing it safe, but King Kong is nevertheless and exciting game for all of you out there who love a good adventure.
This particular version of the game is an unofficial one, dealing with the theme through a vintage graphic twist and fabulous music and audio effects. Five reels, 25 active paylines and a couple of special features are here at your disposal in this adventurous jungle experience.
What We Love
A classic theme that has been presented in various forms and shapes throughout years is something you have to love. King Kong as a misunderstood love-seeking, good-hearted beast is something any of you can relate to, so we bet it would take only a spin or two for you to get involved in order to help this gorilla around.
We love the fact this game is available through different bet values which can cater to the needs of a wide audience and different players, starting from the beginners, casual gamers and all the way up to the high rollers.
The creators have done a great job of putting a spicy twist to a classically presented theme, with the King Kong Goes Ape feature. In addition to being a great feature to help you scoop hefty wins that can go up to 25x your bet, it also has a brilliant visual appeal to it with the King Kong smashing your screen before going up the building.
What We Do Not Like
It may be down to our personal preference, actually we are pretty sure it is, but unofficial version of certain global brands tend to put us off right from the start.
NextGen have tried to nail the subject having incorporated all the details both from the original film and the remake from 2010, but it still lacks originality and that is one thing that stands in our way towards liking this video slot. Payouts are the next thing and perhaps the most important one that we consider to be a major roadblock.
Don’t get us wrong, the base game will have you winning on regular basis, but those wins can hardly ever cover for your total cost. If you think that special features will offer help in this regard, then you are wrong as both King Kong Smash game and King Goes Ape feature are quite rare. Or at least that was our first-hand experience with the game.
The final verdict on the King Kong video slot by NextGen depends on what you are looking for in a game. If you are a casual gamer that just wants to pass some free time playing for fun, than our answer would be a positive one.
You will find plenty of different options, starting from a Gamble feature whenever you land a win all the way up to the Mystery Cash Prize that will be initiated when you land three Scatters to trigger a brand new game of a King Kong smashing planes.
However, if you consider yourself a high roller, then this game is not for you. A straight-forward scenario and a repetitive gameplay will have you spinning a lot before you actually make your time worthwhile.
