NextGen Gaming is proposing us, with Gorilla Go Wilder, to once again have a go at a slot machine which uses a Gorilla character that we’ve seen before. This is a sequel, to another slot of theirs, called Gorilla Go Wild, and it’s a very impressive release, as you’re about to find out.
Though you get only 5 reels and 25 lines in the base game, so about what’s expected, you can end up with as many as 200 lines eventually, where the rewards could potentially reach 10,000x the stake. Besides the huge potential rewards, the slot also has up to 25x multipliers, wandering wilds, symbols which transform, mega stacked icons, mystery symbols, free spins and expanding wilds. It’s truly amazing how many features they managed to cram into a game that can pay so much.
BETTING AND PRIZES
Wagering in Gorilla Go Wilder is done via 30 coins, which are used for 25 active lines. You set up a wager of $0.30 to $75, so the highest that a line bet will go seems to reach $2.50.
When it comes to prizes, Gorilla Go Wilder excels at making itself look good. Whether it’s the 25x multipliers which can be achieved or the presence of 200 lines on which you can form winning combinations during free spins, there are several ways to land a big jackpot here. The free spins seem capable of delivering payouts of 10,000x the stake, while the base game offers up to 1,250x. $750,000 is what you’d get if you filled the reels with certain matching symbols, during the free spins.
GORILLA GO WILDER SLOT FEATURES
The list of features in Gorilla Go Wilder is fairly impressive. You get Gary, the main character, as the substitute, and it’s also going to be capable of paying 50x the stake.
Random features are a big part of the game, and they can take several forms. One of those is called Shell Re-Spins, which activates at random, revolving around Shells that you need to get during re-spins, in order for the feature to continue. At the end, you get paid for all the shells which are collected.
Gary’s Gifts is the second random feature, which can activate the Bonus Islands. The same feature is accessed via 3+ Bonus scatters. Eight different variants exist, for the free spins, depending on the number of times you’ve triggered the feature in the past. There really is a huge amount of variety in these free spins, which deliver extras such as mystery symbols, expanding wilds, stacked symbols, 200 paylines, extra wilds, wandering wilds with 10x multipliers, or multiplier zones which improve wins by as much as 25x.
As you can see, it’s impressive how much variety you will get from this game, if you stick with it and you keep triggering its free spins. Each time is going to be something different, and once you’ve unlocked them, you can play the variants that you prefer.
THEME & DESIGN
With a gorilla for the game’s main character, the choice of a tropical island for the backdrop is not unexpected. You will find the gorilla (Gary) among the symbols, along with monkeys, toucans, coins and other creatures. Do expect Royals to be a part of the design as well, unfortunate but typical of a lot of slots right now.
Gorilla Go Wilder is a great sequel to the Gorilla Go Wild slot machine, delivering huge variety for some of its features, along with big potential rewards of up to 10,000x the stake.
