Venture deep into the heart of the jungle on a quest for a jackpot in Mighty Kong, a gorilla-themed slot powered by Pragmatic Play.
It features five reels and fifty payline engines that contains stacked wilds and a bonus round where between five and eighty free spins are on offer with multipliers of between x1 and x8.
King Kong is one of those timeless stories that has managed to cross time and touch generations of fans. Mighty Kong is one of the several video slot games that pay homage to the giant ape and its epic exploits across the world.
Unlike the film versions, as mentioned, Mighty Kong takes place in a remote jungle as opposed to New York City.
The backdrop of the game permits players to catch a flash of a dense and luxuriant jungle, where tall cascading waterfalls pour water continuously between the trees. The visuals of the game are very high, and players will feel like they are staring at an actual landscape as the play unfolds.
The tribal-inspired audios associated with the game make the adventure even more real for the players. Mighty Kong places a strong emphasis on world-building and delivers a believable and genuinely immersive game universe for players to enjoy.
Symbols and features in Mighty Kong
Those symbols include Ace, King, Queen, Jack to Ten playing cards, an explorer, an eye-patched sea-worthy adventurer, a gnarly old sea captain and female and male characters. The heroine is the top-paying icon – landing five on a payline will get a payout of 1,000 coins.
There’s also a wild - when it lands on the middle reel, it will expand to fill all of it if a winning combination is formed from that expansion.
The other icon to look out for is Kong the gorilla which is the games scatter - landing three or more scatters anywhere on the reels on the same spin, and players will activate the Free Spins round. Here you will be given four free spin and multiplier combinations to choose from - the options are:
Forty free spins with an x1 multiplier
Thirteen free spins with an x3 multiplier
Eight free spins with an x5 multipliers
Five free spins with an x8 multiplier
If players land three scatters on the same spin during the round, the same number of free spins will be re-activated, complete with the accompanying multiplier.
Mighty Kong is a pretty solid slot. A thunderous, adventure style soundtrack excellently backs the visuals.
The range of bonus features may not be extensive, but there’s enough to make this a very playable game. The stacked wilds are great in the original game, but Mighty Kong comes alive in the Free Spins round thanks to the potential wins on offer due to the multipliers. Get lucky here, and this big beast can deliver monstrous payouts to match.
