Gorilla Pokie Review
Welcome to the Jungle! Novomatic has us swinging from the trees with their Gorilla pokie, a five reel game with a monster 50 pay-lines. It feels like more could have been made from this theme, certainly regarding animation, as gameplay feels very safe and predictable.
Against a background of a jungle clearing we have images of tropical birds and flowers, plus the solemn gorilla of the title, spinning on the reels.
The game features some nicely atmospheric music and sound effects, which is a feature often overlooked on pokies, so it is good to hear the overall theme being followed through regarding the audio effects.
Minimum possible bet on the Gorilla pokie is one coin per line, going up to a maximum of 50 coins per line.
Alright then, no more monkeying around, let’s find out what this game has to offer:
About The Game
Coins Range:0.01 To 2.00
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:10/No
Wild Symbol: a tribal mask represents the Wild symbol in the Gorilla pokie game, and this can substitute for every symbol except for the Scatter. Don’t expect any pay outs when you see multiple Wild symbols though, as their only value is to replace other symbols.
Scatter Symbol: look out for the African continent symbol here, as three of these will give you ten free games. You can retrigger once for a further 5 free games, which hopefully will be enough for you to pick up some big wins because you can only retrigger spins once.
To aid in your quest, during the free spin rounds an extra wild will be added to reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 to give you even more chances to win. Note that the Scatter symbol will only show up on the first three reels.
If your screen is covered with images of the titular Gorilla then you know you are in for a chest -thumpingly good win of x1,000 times your per line bet.
Otherwise 5 birds of paradise will earn you a very respectable 500 times your stake and five of the tropical flowers across the reels are worth 400 times your bet.
Unfortunately exciting action is at a premium with the Gorilla pokie, so don’t expect to be gripped by edge of the seat entertainment.
The option of a big 50 pay-lines is more generous than the regular Novomatic offering, but the presence of the usual 50:50 gamble option will reassure you that this is indeed a game from their stables.
The Gorilla pokie offers a pretty average return to player (RTP) of 95.09%, so nothing exceptional to tempt players in this regard either.
Gorilla is a pretty standard offering from Novomatic, with only the increased number of pay lines differentiating it from a lot of other similar titles.
Whether this is enough of a temptation for you to venture into the depths of the African jungle is up to you to decide.
