King Kong is certainly one of the most iconic characters in the history of filmography. The story of the gigantic ape, taken from its natural environment and brought to New York, with its epic ending at the Empire State Building, is certainly well known not only by all of the movie's fans.
Kong: The 8th Wonder Of The World
The Kong slot machine: The 8th Wonder Of The World is inspired by Peter Jackson's movie of 2005. In fact, it uses all the best parts of that movie. Playtech did their best and created an online slot machine with excellent atmosphere, combining not only important characters from the movie but also bringing you back to the thirties of the 20th century – here, the stylish and meticulous work on the graphics and sound deserve a special mention.
At its core, this is a classical 5 reel slot machine with 20 winning lines. The game begins in the jungle (the story is introduced by a well-done movie intro), and you will immediately notice the spectacular quality of the audio. As with all movie-based slot machines by Playtech, Kong also uses original sound from the movie, ensuring that the resulting audio is appropriately epic and significantly contribute to the generally positive feeling from the game.
You'll see several types of symbols on the screen. Standard ones include 10, J, Q, K and A, while higher-ranked symbols depict the movie's protagonists. By the way, our only negative comment regarding the visuals is related specifically to the latter symbols, since the photos of the actors are incredibly pixelated and don't fit the otherwise excellent visuals of the game at all. Luckily, this is only a very small stain on an otherwise incredibly grand game. The wild symbol depicts a furious Kong, and the scatter symbol is represented by the game's logo.
Two game modes
Kong: The 8th Wonder Of The World actually consists of two games. When playing, you'll encounter both the so-called Jungle Mode and the Big City Mode. Each mode has its own visuals and mildly different bonuses, but the winnings table stays the same.
In Jungle mode, each spin with 3 and more Wild symbols is followed by the "Wild Jungle respins" function, which rewards the player with 3 free spins. And if you get a wildcard on your reels, it will stay on the reels for the duration of these free spins. If you succeed in obtaining a scatter win for 3 and more scatter symbols on your reels, you'll get a chance to win the Skull Island Bonus. There, you'll see a map of the island and your task will be to find three symbols of the same animal. But you'll also win if you find Kong instead.
Once you reach the Skull Island, you have completed the Jungle Mode and after the minigame ends you'll move to the Big City Mode. This has its own graphics and you'll be basically playing a different game. But the principle remains the same. 3 or more Wild symbols will provide you with Wild Kong Respins. Once again you'll have three free spins, but with different bonuses.
Getting three scatter symbols also provides you with a different minigame. This time you'll be playing as Kong on the top of a skyscraper and your goal will be to hit at least one of the three planes attacking you. You get a cash bonus for each plane you hit. Once you finish this minigame, you are once again transferred back to Jungle Mode.
Summary of Kong: The 8th Wonder Of The World
Playtech showed that they can make extraordinarily high-quality slot machines. Kong is truly a success story; even though already some time has passed since the release of the movie, the game remains interesting in its own right. And so if you've already grown tired of simple slot machines like Cat Queen and other desert variants and you'd like to try something different and interesting, give Kong a try. You won't be sorry.
