Who really is the king of the monkeys? It’s a tough question to answer, especially when Gorilla Go Wilder and Mad Money Monkey both give us prize-giving primates. But unlike these two, they’re not primate royalty. That title goes to King Kong Cash, the ruling ape of this five reel, 20 payline slot. With superb visuals and a bunch of bonuses, it’s time for you to enjoy the world of the monkey monarch.

Pros & Cons

  • So many bonus features.
  • It’s like Donkey Kong in slot form!
  • Cool soundtrack.
  • What’s wrong with King Kong’s eyes?
  • Random features trigger more than bonus ones.
  • Low variance.

How to Play

After a brief intro that sets the scene, you get to join King Kong on the reels. The titular character appears on the left, perched upon his throne similar to King Louie from the Jungle Book. But this slot isn’t bothered about man’s red flower, he’s happy to let you spin away and land big wins. You can do that by pressing the big spin button that floats on the right of the screen. Or you can hit autospin which is below and take a seat back like the King himself. Betting ranges can be adjusted by selecting the arrows on the left side of the screen. During the spins the buttons disappear so you can watch the entertaining symbols come to life before your very eyes, before gifting you with cash prizes.

Symbols

The royal card values, Jack, Queen, King and Ace appear as the low value symbols, but the high payers are made up of jungle characters. This includes a Rhino, Tiger, Parrot, Crocodile and the game’s logo. The Barrel is the Wild symbol (borrowing from Donkey Kong it seems!) and substitutes for all symbols except the King Kong Scatter, to help create winning combinations.

Bonuses

Blueprint is known for its many bonus games – just take a look at Top Cat as a perfect example – and it’s no different here. King Kong can trigger up to four random base game bonuses, while three Scatters can trigger up to four bonus rounds – you simply spin a wheel and it’ll decide which one you get – see below for more information.

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Base game - Banana Cannon Wilds

Kong fires bananas which land on the reels, turning them into Wilds.

Base game - Golden Barrel Super Spin

Upon waking, Kong throws a barrel right into the middle of the reels. It explodes and more barrels are added to the reels. After the clear up, you’ll see the barrels all transforming into the same matching symbol.

Base game - King Kong Spin Streak

Land a win and Kong pulls out a massive mallet, whacks the reels and your successful symbols are held for a re-spin. This can go on until no new wins are made.

Base game - Bonus Boost

Friendly old Kong is at it again, this time adding an extra Scatter symbol to the reels to help you trigger one of the bonuses.

Bonus – Barrel Blast

You get three barrels to pick from. Find three of the same to win a Multiplier. Three Golden Monkeys will take you to the Big Money Bonus feature.

Bonus – King Kong Trail

Follow the cash trail and collect prizes as you go. And guess what? A Golden Monkey takes you to the Big Money Bonus but a bomb ends the round.

Bonus – Empire Free Spins

Just like the famous film, these Free Spins take you to the Empire State Building. Collect Gold Monkeys for bigger rewards.

Bonus – Golden Kong Free Spins

You’ll move to a five reel, 40 payline reelset and you can start collecting Wilds on each spin. At the end you get Wild Super Spins, putting all your Wilds into action. Golden Monkeys give you more spins but again, bombs end the round.

Big Monkey Bonus

It’s been said enough times already and you’re probably wondering what it is but this is the ultimate. If you trigger this during the bonus rounds you could win up to 1,000 times your stake on top of all the other wins!

Gamble feature

Don’t like the bonus feature you’ve been awarded? You can always gamble it for another one. Even if you lose, you can still get a Mystery Cash prize.
