Gorilla Gold takes players deep into the jungles of the world in search of rare and beautiful animals. Its quadruple reels sport the usual ace to ten symbols along with snakes, crocodiles, and tigers. A multi-continental menagerie of big game animals.
You can follow the creatures into the dark, damp woods in search of the gorilla’s Gold. But you’ll have to watch out for jungle dangers along the way.
Gorilla Gold’s graphics are pretty solid. They are rendered nicely with a deep green background that allows the four reels in oranges and browns to really pop. The symbols are cool, dramatically drawn wildlife with a bit of a twist.
The animations are reasonable, highlighting action as it takes place and keeping things clear. The quadruple reels mean that unless you are playing on a large screen, the symbols can be a little small. The animations help with this.
The win and spin sounds are well chosen, and add nicely to the atmosphere of the slot. Though more thought could have been put into the limited musical accompaniment.
In the base game there are four slot games. These play more or less independently. Remember to note that your bet per spin will be quadrupled as you are placing separate bets on each set of reels.
Each slot has six reels on which two to six symbols can appear. The number of symbols is randomised.
Winning combinations are formed by three or more matching symbols in adjacent reels starting from the leftmost reel. As a result, knock on effect of this, the number of win ways varies widely from spin to spin. Winning combos are removed from the reels, and new symbols drop down from above. This cascade feature works independently on each reel.
The bonus features are interesting (see below for detail) and, along with the cascade, keep the pace of the game constantly changing. Perfect for keeping players engaged.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol.
The Scatter symbol serves to trigger the Bonus. Three or more Scatters take the player to a wheel. Players spin the wheel to determine how many free spins they get, and whether those spins are Free Spins or Super Spins.
Free Spins take place on a single set of reels.
Super spins are only available to players who have activated the "Super Bet" option in the base game. During Super Spins, the player can collect Golden Gorillas. Five Golden Gorillas will activate a second set of reels. Fifteen Golden Gorillas will add another. At thirty Golden Gorillas, the player has all four slots in play.
The more Scatters that trigger the Bonus, the better the options on the wheel are. With four Scatters players can win either 20 Free Spins or 15 Super Spins. Each extra Scatter over four adds +5 to the possible number of either kind of spin.
The return to player of this game is 97.00%, well over our yardstick for average of roughly 96%. This is a definite plus.
We also like how the high RTP combines with the slot’s high volatility. Our preferred strategies target the highest possible volatility, and ideally looks to combine that with a generous RTP.
The range of bets on the site we tested ran from a minimum bet per spin of $/£/€0.10 up to a maximum of $/£/€100.00 per spin. That’s a pretty good spread that will cover most players at most stakes.
Gorilla Gold Megaways makes excellent use of the Megaways system. By quadrupling it, the slot creates a very different feel that should keep players excited and interested from the start.
The graphics, animations, and soundtrack are all solid. Not the most thrilling set of designs, but competently put together, and it all works well with the interesting gameplay.
The main appeal for us is the combination of high volatility and high RTP. This makes Gorilla Gold Megaways an excellent slot for our slot strategies.
